2010 NRL Round 15 Match & Betting Previews

We are past the midway point in the 2010 NRL Telstra Premiership and this weekend should be an absolute beauty with a Suncorp Stadium double-heading kicking things off on Friday night.

On Wednesday night the mighty Maroons entered the record books as Origin’s most successful team when they trounced a lacklustre Blues 34 – 6 in Origin II securing five successive series in front of their home crowd at Suncorp Stadium.

For a lot of teams at the top then, Round 15 becomes about whose stars can back up best after the tough Origin battle.

The first match at Suncorp Stadium on Friday night is a home game for the on-fire Broncos as they aim for their sixth consecutive NRL win, following their impressive 50 – 22 thrashing of the Rabbitohs last week, facing off against the number two team on the ladder, the Penrith Panthers.

This is followed by the low-ranking Bulldogs playing off against the Titans, who enjoyed a big 28 – 14 win ahead of Manly last round.

On Saturday the Melbourne Storm play another game at their new AAMI Park home, looking to atone for their embarrassing 30 – 6 loss to the Roosters last Monday night. They play the Cowboys, who despite beating Canberra 16 – 8 last week, are still the last of the premiership contenders.

Saturday’s second match has the Sea Eagles hosting the Rabbitohs at Brookvale Oval, both teams coming off big losses last week.

Other games in Round 14 include the Sharks hosting the competition leading Dragons at Toyota Stadium, the in-form Wests Tigers facing the Raiders, and the Knights v Eels match on Monday night.

Two teams have a bye this week, the New Zealand Warriors and the Sydney Roosters.
