Storm vs Sharks
Here we are once again Last year’s grand finalists to continue this fierce rivalry that has taken so many twists and turns full of heart break and celebration. The Sharks match up well defensively and are able to stop the Storm’s scoring power with 3 out of 4 games the Storm boys have scored 12 points or less and losing 3 of thoes games. This game will be about Origin with billy slater as well as others useing this game as an audition to put there hand up and look for selection in game two. The Sharks have had more then 20 points scored against them just once this year. They have the best defence this year with Melbourne not far behind. The Storm are after redemption and with a fresh Smith and a point to prove they may just get the win if their stars stand up. With the Sharks having a week off they will be fresh and may finish the game stronger.

Sea eagles vs Knights
Under the friday night lights a determined Sea Eagles take on a woeful Knights. The Knights game last week was full of errors and miss haps if the Knights are any chance then Dane Gagai will need to be at his very best like last week were he scored two trys and was breaking tackles all day. The Sea Eagles right side have been destroying opposition defence in recent weeks with Dale Cherry-Evens leading the way and will do so again in this game.

Bunnies vs Broncos
Last time these 2 meet the Bunnies suffered a heart breaking one point loss, and comming off the bye they will be fresh and out for revenge.
Milford returns for the Broncos his quick pace and ability to run out games will be a huge factor in this game if the Broncos are going to hit the form that saw them dominate the competition. Corey Oates loves playing this side as he has scored six try’s in four games against the Bunnies . The Broncos have lost just one match this year at Sun Corp and cant see them dropping this one

Titans vs Warriors
What should be a day of celebration for both teams will end in heart break for one with the Titans unveiling their Team of the Decade and Warriors back-rower Ryan Hoffman to play his 300th nrl game. Both of these teams can score fast and have with most of the Titans trys comming after half time and most of the warriors trys before half time. A very horrible stat the Titans have just one win against the Warriors team in their last 13 games. With Jarred Hayne returning to fullback i expect him to lead the way and the Titans break the hoodoo

Panthers vs Raiders
So much has been said about the Panthers potential this year amd very few times living up to the hype. Same goes for Raiders they are a big fast team that can break you open but fumble the ball and make a lot of errors. The Raiders have again lost more players to injury which is going to hurt them, also the raiders have fallen apart in second half this year they have let in 24 trys to the Panthers 16. The raiders are also going at a very poor rate of just 48.5 percent game time with the ball. if the Panthers can move the ball around fast and slick and can keep the raiders to that again they win

West Tigers vs Roosters
If the Tigers are to make anything of this season then they must win this match up. Its going to be a battle given the Tigers loose there vc and the Roosters get Mitchell Pearce back into their team the Tigers are the worst team for missed tackles and ranked in bottom 5 for errors. The Roosters hold a very impressive win record of 12 out of 13 games won against the Tigers in recent history. Mitchell Pearce has also scored 10 tries in 13 games against the Tigers. With all the injuries to the tigers and Roosters playing a good brand of football there doesn’t seem a way in for the Tigers.
Prediction Roosters by 10
Best bet Roosters 13+
Smokey Mitchell Pearce to score a try
Bulldogs vs Dragons
How the once mighty Bulldogs have fallen to the bottom half of the ladder their game is full or misteaks fumbles and errors they have more penaltys and errors conceded than the Dragons. One bright note is the Bulldogs have won 9 of their last 10 games against this Dragons. The Bulldogs do have a habit of winning their next game after a flogging. The Dragons are sitting pretty inside the top 4 playing great football the Dragons offence has been sublime an average nearly two more try’s a game than the Bulldogs. Look for the Dragons to get one back over the Bulldogs in a close one
