2010 NRL Telstra Premiership Round 22 Match & Betting Previews

There is now just five weeks to go until the Minor Premiers are named and the best footy finals of the year play out as we move into Round 22 of the 2010 NRL Telstra Premiership.

The contest for the top four spots is one of the hottest in history, with so many in-form teams pushing the limits week after week in order to rise above their rivals.

The Dragons and the Panthers are still one – two on the ladder, but can they survive this round?

St George especially have a tough game this week, facing off against the Roosters who have been firing on all cylinders in a SCG super showdown on Sunday arvo.

A number of teams that have flown under the radar early season are starting their late assault including the red hot Roosters who have risen to the third position.

Then there are the Broncos who are not out of this in any way, shape or form having shown they can beat the best by defeating the Dragons last week.

This week Brisbane play on Friday night in a Queensland derby against the Cowboys while the other important Friday footy clash has the Titans hosting the Eels at Skilled Park.

Other highlights of Round 22 include the Rabbitohs v Tigers battle at ANZ Stadium on Saturday night and Manly v Melbourne at Brookvale Oval.
