2010 NRL Round 10 Match & Betting Previews

We are nearly half-way through the standard season of the 2010 NRL Telstra Premiership, and with the first two rep games of the year having played out last week, the teams are really starting to be tested.

A number of the early NRL leaders, including the St George Illawarra Dragons, suffered shock losses last week as their representative-riddled squads felt the pressure of backing up from the Australia v New Zealand and City v County games from last Friday night.

Despite their loss, the Dragons are still number one on the ladder, with the Gold Coast Titans close on their heels following the Queensland’s club narrow victory ahead of the Knights on Sunday.

This week the Heritage Round – Round 10 comes to us with another eight classic matches including a ripper Queensland derby on Friday night when the Broncos, who caused the biggest upset last week thrashing the Storm 36 – 14, host the Titans at Suncorp Stadium.

The other Friday night game is a classic NSW derby where the Bulldogs host the Dragons at ANZ Stadium.

Other big games this weekend will be the Raiders v Storm on Saturday as NRL fans eagerly wait to see whether Melbourne have come to their inevitable slump or if their wounded pride will be regained this week.

Also, the Wests Tigers v Rabbithos match on Sunday arvo is sure to be an intense 80 minutes as both of these quality clubs stake their top eight claims.

Below we have a look at the eight NRL Round 10 games, assess the chances each team have of coming away with a win and what a victory or loss means for them.
