We were a penalty goal away from another clean sweep!
Our NRL picks are heating up, now is the perfect time to get on board.
Looking ahead to the next perfect round.
Leg 1 – Canterbury Bulldogs Team Total Under 16
Both teams can’t be trusted. This is a game that is likely to be difficult to watch. That’s fine for us though, because the Bulldogs have a knack of losing their way in attack,.
Games when the Bulldogs conceded single digits the previous game have gone 9-0 to the Under. With that said, the Bulldogs have been overly happy with their win against St. George and during their bye.
This is where the Dogs fall flat and even though the Warriors can fall just as hard, the Dogs have been offensively challenged. With questionable goal kicking and an impotent attack, look for the Dogs to score 16 points or under in this one.
Leg 2 – Penrith Panthers -1
Penrith travel to Townsville to take on the Cowboys. In regular circumstances we’d be looking to back the Cowboys. However in this one, the toll of Origin might be too much for the Cowboys to overcome.
The Cowboys’ Thurston is out of this one. Hess, Cooper and Morgan all played as well and may be fatigued for this one. Penrith is unchanged and has resurged in recent weeks.
Moylan at five-eighth, Mansour back and Rein in at Hooker. That combination has been the catalyst for Penrith’s good form.
Take the Panthers to win in a close one.
Leg 3 – Canberra-4.5
We like Canberra in our final play of the week. They’ve been quite hit and miss in recent weeks but going up against a banged up Broncos outfit should be easy enough for this pack of giants at home.
Canberra will be freezing, and the Broncos aren’t too fond of the cold weather.
Milford will be a big blow and the question marks around their halves pairing doesn’t offer much comfort to Brisbane fans. The Raiders could use this game to find their rhythm and get back to playing consistent footy.
I don’t see the Broncos scoring many points, maybe a 24-10 score line in the freezing tundra of the nation’s capital.
Leg 1: Canterbury Bulldogs Team Total Under 16
