2010 NRL Telstra Premiership Round 21 Match & Betting Previews

Can you smell that? It’s the NRL finals wafting round the corner! Footy fans around Australia have just over a month before the 2010 NRL Telstra Premiership moves into the powerful playoffs in September.

As the finals creep closer the level of footy we are treated to each round just keeps getting better and it will be no exception this weekend as Round 21 plays out.

A logjam of teams wavering on the edge of the top eight ensures there will be plenty of passion and some bruising showdowns as punters get behind their favourites and the teams step it up a notch in the fight for the finals.

There have been upsets aplenty over the last month or so and we expect another couple of victories by the underdogs this week as well, so if you know your footy and watch the odds at Ladbrokes.com.au you could get some very juicy returns!

Highlights of Round 21 include the Sydney derby between the Bulldogs and the Rabbitohs on Friday night at ANZ Stadium, South Sydney desperate to maintain their spot in the top eight.

The Eels are looking for their fourth on the trot on Saturday, desperate to continue their recent surge but will find some hardy competition in the third-ranked Roosters.

There is also the important match between the Warriors and the Titans at Mt Smart Stadium on Sunday, the teams sitting sixth and seventh on the ladder coming head to head in a blockbuster top eight clash.

Another one to check out the Ladbrokes.com.au odds on is the Broncos v Dragons clash on Sunday afternoon, where Bennett’s competition leaders will bring their best to Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane needing a win to get back in finals’ contention.

Below we have a good look at the eight games set to play out for Round 21 and give our NRL footy tips and picks to help you bet smart and win at Ladbrokes.com.au.
