Tip – An intriguing battle awaits in the Shire, with both the Sharks and Cowboys desperate for a win to keep their Top 8 chances alive and well.
As good as the Cowboys have been of late when playing away from home, the recent form of Shaun Johnson, back to his very best when running the ball, should assist in carrying the Sharks to a home win.

Tip – In another battle of Top 8 aspirants, Friday night footy returns to Newcastle as the Knights take on West Tigers before an expected sell-out crowd in the Steel City.
The Knights should prove to be too strong for the Western Sydney team as Mitchell Pearce and company look to put Newcastle into their first finals campaign since 2011.
BET ON THE KNIGHTS WITH BETSTAR
Tip – The Dragons are massive underdogs here and unless they can pull off a big upset over South Sydney, their chances of finals could have drifted away.
Watch for the Rabbitohs to get back into their stride and pile plenty of points on the Dragons to boost their for-and-against. Bunnies to win, despite a better St George-Illawarra performance than some recent others.
BET ON THE RABBITOHS WITH BETSTAR
Tip – How much do the Eels love their new stadium? They’ve already compiled an imposing record there as they look to improve on it further against the inconsistent New Zealand Warriors.
Look for Parramatta to emerge victorious with Ferguson, Moses, Gutherson, Takarangi and the gang piling the points on a disappointing Warriors unit.
BET ON PARRAMATTA WITH BETSTAR
Tip – After having their coach sacked mid-season and sitting last on the table, at least the Titans should celebrate with their biggest home crowd of the year as SE QLD neighbours Brisbane come to town.
That is where the celebrations for the Gold Coast should end, as the Broncos class should prevail in the south Queensland derby.
BET ON THE BRONCOS WITH BETSTAR
Tip – An entertaining match is expected in Melbourne, as the hosts welcome fellow likely finals bound team, the Manly Sea Eagles – a master coach battle between Messrs Bellamy and Hasler.
Melbourne’s in-form players should decide this match as the Storm look to pull away further from the chasing pack for the Minor Premiership.
BET ON THE STORM WITH BETSTAR
Tip –Am I the only crazy person in the room who thinks the Bulldogs stand a big chance of upsetting the reigning Premiers in this one? Stranger things have happened.
The Roosters have been far from their imposing best of late, and the bookies have almost compelled us to put our money on the Bulldogs given the extraordinarily superb odds of $5.40 on offer for the upset.
BET ON THE BULLDOGS WITH BETSTAR
Tip – The Panthers find themselves in unfamiliar territory here – a rare Sunday afternoon home game and betting favourites – for this clash with the Raiders.
Expect plenty of points to be scored as the two attacking teams put on an exciting display, with Canberra our tip to come away with a close win to take home with them to the nation’s capital.
