Team News

Roosters – In: James Tedesco, Egan Butcher / Out: Junior Pauga, Sitili Tupouniua

Storm – In: Nelson Asofa-Solomona, Joe Chan / Out: Tui Kamikamica, Tepai Moeroa

What We Like

Fresh off inking a new contract with rugby union at the start of 2025 and breaking the record for most running metres in a single game, Joseph Manu is in the best form of his life, and it would be hard not to bet on him.

Anytime Tryscorer Joseph Manu $2.75

Final Thought

The Roosters will welcome back fullback and skipper James Tedesco this week, and their remaining backs – Joseph Manu, Joseph Suaalii and Daniel Tupou – are playing some of their best football. Add the home advantage, and the club should have the upper hand.

Team News

Dragons – In: Christian Tuipulotu / Out: Jack Bird

Warriors – In: Adam Pompey / Out: Jazz Tevaga

What We Like

The Warriors are the most consistent team in the competition, and despite the Dragons registering wins over the Tigers and Sea Eagles in recent weeks, the away team will be too much to handle.

Match Result New Zealand Warriors $1.44

Final Thought

With the Warriors expected to win, the Warriors will be looking to be dominant right out of the door and get off to a good start from the opening kick-off.

Team News

Eels – In: Blaize Talagi / Out: Kelma Tuilagi

Dolphins – In: Trai Fuller, Sean O’Sullivan, Max Plath / Out: Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow, Anthony Milford, Ray Stone

What We Like

With no Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow (hamstring injury) in the team, a member of the Dolphins backline needs to stand up in his place. Look no further than new recruit and former Bulldogs back Jake Averillo.

Anytime Tryscorer Jake Averillo $3.20

Final Thought

The Eels love to begin the game in the middle of the ruck and will head straight to their forwards in the opening minutes of the contest and close to the line. While named on the interchange bench, Joe Ofahengaue has nearly started in every game this season and is a shout to score first.

Tigers – In: Lachlan Galvin, Latu Fainu, John Bateman, Samuela Fainu, Brent Naden / Out: Jayden Sullivan, Justin Matamua, Jake Simpkin, Solomona Faataape, Asu Kepaoa

What We Like

While unlikely, the last time the two teams played in Bathurst, the Wests Tigers produced a stunning victory in wet and rainy conditions. The Panthers are out-and-out favourites, but a surprise upset from the Tigers shouldn’t be off the table.

Match Result Wests Tigers $4.80

Final Thought

While a Tigers win is unlikely, they are a completely different team that hat of the previous seasons. Improving in defence, the club under Benji Marshall, will keep the game tight in the middle of the ruck.

Margin Penrith Panthers 1-12 $2.95

Sea Eagles – In: Matt Lodge, Jason Saab, Reuben Garrick, Nathan Brown / Out: Ben Trbojevic, Tof Sipley, Josh Aloiai, Jaxson Paulo

What We Like

No stranger to the try-line, winger Jason Saab will return this weekend and is an easy choice to add four points to the total scoreline.

Anytime Tryscorer Jason Saab $1.74

Final Thought

Yet to win a game, the Gold Coast Titans are arguably the worst team in the NRL at the moment. They have had major struggles on the defensive end of the field, and this can be expected to continue with the Sea Eagles regaining five-star players.

Match Result Manly Sea Eagles 13+ $2.20

Team News

Broncos – No Changes Made

Raiders – In: Simi Sasagi / Out: Zac Hosking

What We Like

It’s impossible to go past James Schiller to cross the line. In three games this season, the winger has scored an impressive five tries and even managed to keep Albert Hopoate out of the team.

Anytime Tryscorer James Schiller $2.25

Final Thought

The Raiders are one of the most under-rated teams at the moment and could produce yet another upset this week against an under-manned Brisbane Broncos line-up.

Knights – No Changes Made

What We Like

The Canterbury Bulldogs will be outsiders heading into the match, but after a string of close performances, they are finally due to earn the two points and move up the ladder.

Match Result Canterbury Bulldogs $1.97

Final Thought

The Bulldogs have one of the most dangerous left-edge with Viliame Kikau, Matt Burton, Stephen Crichton and Josh Addo-Carr. Kikau is in career-best form and is leading the Dally M tally, so the club will be looking to their superstars to begin the game.

Team News

What We Like

Games played at ‘Shark Park’ are notoriously high-scoring. Expect no different when two of the best attacking teams go head-to-head against one another.

Total Score (45.5) Over 45.5 $1.91

Final Thought

Currently sitting on top of the NRL ladder, the Cronulla Sharks are unbeatable at the moment and will add more depth to the forwards with the inclusion of Braden Hamlin-Uele.
