It’s beginning to feel a lot like finals!
With just four weeks left before we head into the sudden-death-showdowns of the 2010 NRL Telstra Premiership, each of the remaining rounds fans will be treated to more and more intense matches as teams prepare to fight for the Premiership title.
This weekend Round 23 features eight incredible clashes that Rugby League betting fans won’t want to miss.
Highlight matches worth a punt on include the Brisbane v Parramatta blockbuster at Suncorp Stadium on Friday night, the Eels given one last chance of grabbing a spot in the top eight.
And Sunday footy has never looked better with three top games scheduled.
First Melbourne will host the Bunnies at AAMI Park, South Sydney coming off a miraculous golden-point extra-time win over the Tigers.
There is also the Warriors v Knights game in New Zealand and then it’s the battle of the big cats as Penrith, possibly the luckiest team in the NRL still in second spot despite losing four of their past five, play against the Wests Tigers at Campbelltown.
After sitting at the top of the ladder all season it looks like St George Illawarra have done it again and secured back-to-back Minor Premierships, but it won’t be an easy finish to the season for the Dragons as they play a determined Sea Eagles outfit on Monday night.
