NRL Round 21 Highlights 

Panthers vs Bulldogs
As the finals draw closer the equations get harder win at all cost for both teams, the Bulldogs are 3 games out side the top eight and must win and hope other teams fall. A win against Pantehrs is a step in the right direction. For the Panthers a win keeps them knocking on the door of finals and ends the dogs hopes. The Panthers this year have 22 more line breaks than the dogs, Panthers have also won 6 of 9 at the ground even with injury to the panthers captain. The Panthers  are really building momentum for a crack at the top 8.

Sharks vs Warriors 
The warriors are 6 points behind 8th on the ladders and need to dare to be great to have a remote chance of playing finals, but comming up against a sharks team that is building nicely. The warriors are a different team at home this year and currently possess the NRL’s second-best home record with six wins from nine matches. At home the Warriors average 20.5 points a game. The Sharks sit third in the competition for metres gained this year averaging 1644 meters per match. Sharks looking to cement a spot in the top four and seem to have a bit too much class for the Warriors.

Eels vs Broncos 
A top 4 is on offering for the Broncos as the bussiness end starts. As for the eels if they drop this game they fall closer to the panthers. The broncos get Captain Darius Boyd back who will want to find some form quick. The Brisbane have a good record against Parramatta in recent times, winning their last three matches by 12 points or more. The Broncos have not lost to the Eels in Sydney since a 2013. Given the eels have a few out and the broncos only missing 1 player they should have to much fire power.

Dragons vs knights 
The dragons are just holding onto 8th spot amd take on a team that does not want the wooden spoon . The Knights are on an eight-game losing streak and will want to break that, as for the dragons they did it as underdogs last week and will be looking for a repeat performance against the the bottom team in a game that could go a long way to deciding their finals fate. Even better news the dragons have won 9 of their last 10 games against the knights the dragons can pile on the points just look at last week amd have 100 more points this season.

Raiders vs south sydney 
While finals seam like a life time away for both clubs its all about pride and who wants it more. Souths last week showed heart they had completions at 82 per cent and were good they beat Cronulla’s offloads 18-9 and had fewer missed tackles 29-38. In bunnies favour all of this holding just 43 per cent of the ball. If they can do that again with discipline and smart attacks with touch of the attacking they will get up. The raiders have been hit by suspension and injurys and will be a little flat.

Roosters vs cowboys 
Could very well be the game of the round

Both want the top 4 and both can make it. The cowboys have won just 6 of 19 against the roosters and will be keen to make it 7 Both sides have everything to play for and both had disrupted preparations leading up to this big game. The result will come down to which forward pack can have a crack dig deep for the small efforts late in the game. If either Pearce or Morgan have big games they’ll likely tip the balance their wsy

Storm vs Manly 
If manly win they keep the wolfs at bay if they loose it leaves the race right open. If the storm win they go a game clear on top after a solid month of football manly have fallen in a hole of late dropping 2 of 3 games. For Manly their defence is a concern facing the ruthless and professional Storm who will break their opponents down for the full match. Manly have the worst defence in the top 8 and melbourne one of the best attacking team home game for melb and a red hot Nate Miles wanting revenge on his old team.

Titans vs west tigers
The tigers season is over but for the titans its simpler they have to win every one of their remaining six games to the of the season to be any chance of featuring in the finals and with a recent three-game winning streak and a good recent record against the Tigers they should be able to get the job done. The titans are in a 4 game winning stretch against the tigers . The Titans have a remarkable 23 tries from kicks so far this season the Titans are ranked No.1 in the NRL and on the other side the Tigers are ranked 12th for tries conceded from kicks within the 15m.
