NRL Round 10 Draw
Friday May 15, 2015
Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs ($2.50) vs Sydney Roosters ($1.55)
ANZ Stadium (7:35pm)
The Bulldogs welcome back skipper James Graham who will inject a fresh burst of enthusiasm but the Roosters are near the top of the Grand Final winner’s markets for a reason and after snapping a four game losing streak with a Round 9 win last week the Chooks will be hard to hold off here.
North Queensland Cowboys ($1.67) vs Brisbane Broncos ($2.25)
1300 Smiles Stadium (7:35pm)
All the money looks to be on the Cowboys here who are looking to secure their seventh straight win before Origin takes away their star player in the coming weeks. Brisbane have a dodgy recent record up in North Queensland but they are playing excellent football earning top spot on the ladder and their defense has been outstanding.
Saturday May 16, 2015
Parramatta Eels ($2.08) vs New Zealand Warriors ($1.78)
Pirtek Stadium (3:00pm)
The Eels have the home ground advantage here but it might not be enough after they looked pretty hopeless losing to the Storm last week while their rivals this weekend, the Warriors, won 20 – 16 over the Sharks in Round 9. Big shake-up for the Parra outfit though with Chris Sandow and Joseph Paulo both dropped from the side.
Gold Coast Titans ($1.70) vs Cronulla Sutherland Sharks ($2.20)
Cbus Super Stadium (5:30pm)
This is the first game played between these two at the Gold Coast since 2011 when the Sharks won. This time round it is the home side who look the most likely, the Titans out to atone for one of their worst ever losses when thrashed 56 – 16 last week by the Raiders. Cronulla are always good for an upset but think the home team has more to play for after the Round 9 effort.
Melbourne Storm ($1.48) vs South Sydney Rabbitohs ($2.70)
AAMI Park (7:30pm)
After a loss to Manly the Storm fought back to beat the Eels in a confidence-booster last week. This week at home they host the Bunnies who have John Sutton in five-eighth with Adam Reynolds out with an injured thumb. The Rabbitohs are a smart side but they have been failing to play up to par over the past few weeks. The odds are juicy for them to bounce back here, with plenty of rep players looking to strut their stuff in front of selectors from both squads.
Sunday May 17, 2015
St George Illawarra Dragons ($1.53) vs Canberra Raiders ($2.55)
WIN Stadium (2:00pm)
This is shaping up as one of the round’s best with the third-ranked Dragons, who are the leaders in defense this season, playing attacking stars the Raiders. Canberra absolutely smashed the Gold Coast with a 40-point winning margin last week so have plenty of tries in them. Big odds for them to back up and do so again however against St George who won’t be anywhere nearly as easy to get past.
Newcastle Knights ($1.73) vs Wests Tigers ($2.15)
Hunter Stadium (4:00pm)
This is a must win for the Knights who are on a definite downward spiral after such a high start to the season. Both teams were pretty hopeless losing their respective matches last round, so it could come down to who has more to play for. The Tigers are sitting higher on the ladder but are underdogs for Newcastle who have the home ground advantage and atonement in their minds.
Monday May 18, 2015
Manly Warringah Sea Eagles ($1.75) vs Penrith Panthers ($2.12)
Brookvale Oval (7:00pm)
Cellar-dwellers Manly posted just their third win of the season when posting back-to-back victories last weekend and now start favourites to hold off Penrith and make it three on the trot, trying to crawl their way back into contention. Penrith were good against Brisbane last week losing narrowly but fighting till the very end so don’t expect there to be much of a margin here.
