2010 NRL Round 12 Match & Betting Previews

This weekend we move into another split round of the 2010 NRL Telstra Premiership as all but two teams feature in seven excellent matches for Round 12.

With the best of the best away at State of Origin camp last week, it was an intense and demanding round for the 10 teams that played, and as predicted there were a number of upset wins.

Things kicked off on Friday night when the Wests Tigers returned to form and blew the Knights away in a rain-soaked 23 – 6 win. This week the Tigers are rewarded with a home ground game at Campbelltown where they will play the Warriors, who are coming off two tidy wins.

Meanwhile after their Round 11 loss, the Newcastle Knights are one of two teams on a bye this week, the other being the Canberra Raiders.

The Raiders were impressive last week when the Green Machine pulled together and found enough momentum and points to sleigh the under-strength Dragons 22 – 14, who were missing six stars to Origin and Dan Hunt injured in the warm-up also missing the match.

St George Illawarra will be hoping to return to form on Friday night, when they host the Eels at WIN Stadium, just two days after game one of State of Origin plays out.

The Eels suffered a shock defeat of their own last week, going down to Cronulla 18 – 22. The Sharks have a home game this Sunday, playing the Broncos who are fresh off a bye.

Other top games this weekend include the Rabbitohs v Panthers match at ANZ Stadium on Sunday and the Titans v Roosters at Skilled Park Monday night.
