Suncorp Stadium – 03/05/2018

Brisbane Broncos ($1.50) vs Canterbury Bulldogs ($2.60)


Tip – The Broncos to take out the Thursday night battle of the strugglers at Suncorp as many of the Broncos look to impress the Queensland State of Origin selectors at the Maroons home.

Newcastle International Sports Centre – 04/05/2018

Newcastle Knights ($2.40) vs South Sydney Rabbitohs ($1.58)


Tip – The Knights will struggle without Mitchell Pearce’s direction to guide them around the park and Souths are looking white-hot. Easy tip – the Rabbits.

Carrington Park, Bathurst – 04/05/2018

Penrith Panthers ($1.78) vs North Queensland Cowboys ($2.05)


Tip – The Cowboys are improving as a side; however, they may not yet have the consistentcy to beat the impressive Panthers in the ‘bush’ in Bathurst.

Canberra Stadium – 05/05/2018

 Canberra Raiders ($1.58) vs Gold Coast Titans ($2.40)


Tip – The Raiders will enjoy playing at home with the first breaths of winter air blowing through the nation’s capital. The Green Machine may just scrape over the line against the brave Titans.

Mount Smart Stadium, Auckland, New Zealand – 05/05/2018

New Zealand Warriors ($1.58) vs West Tigers ($2.40)


Tip – The Warriors will relish returning home to New Zealand and will also be refreshed after their long lay-off since the Anzac Day game. It won’t be easy though against a well-organised West Tigers unit.

Shark Park, Cronulla – 05/05/2018

Cronulla Sharks ($1.54) vs Parramatta Eels ($2.50)


Tip – The Sharks to inflict more pain on the gaping wound that has been the Eels season to date.

Jubilee Oval, Kogarah – 06/05/2018

 St George-Illawarra Dragons ($1.81) vs Melbourne Storm ($2.00)

Allianz Stadium, Sydney – 06/05/2018

Sydney Roosters ($1.40) vs Manly Sea Eagles ($3.00)


Tip – Sorry Manly. You’re playing the Roosters on the wrong side of Sydney Harbour and in poor form yourselves to stand any chance in this fixture.
