There are just five weeks left of the regular 2011 NRL season, just five weeks for teams to make their way into the Top 8 and secure a spot in the September semis and five weeks for punters to get their bets down on some teams that won’t be around come NRL finals time.
This weekend the NRL Telstra Premiership moves into Round 22 and there has never been a better time to get your footy bet on as the pointy end of the competition is well and truly here.
While the Melbourne Storm have secured their spot at the top of the table, four competition points clear of the second-ranked Manly Sea Eagles, there is still a genuine arm-wrestle for the Minor Premiership title going on over the next few weeks as well.
With teams like the Warriors, Knights and Wests Tigers fighting for their life to stay in finals contention, the defending premiership winning St George Illawarra Dragons looking to return to form and move into the Top 4 and the always exciting Wooden Spoon finish also to be decided, this really is a NRL footy fans dream time.
To help you turn those Friday night footy fests into cash is Australia’s leading online bookmaker Luxbet.
