NRL Round 7 Review & Betting Tips

Normality returned to the NRL this weekend with the Storm making a big statement.

Sun, 22 Apr, 12:00 PM





The Kiwis produced one of the best games in club history to knock off the previously unbeaten Dragons at Mt Smart Stadium on Friday night. This puts New Zealand in equal first on the NRL ladder with the Red V and although every player contributed heavily to the win, it was individual performances from Roger Tuivasa-Sheck and Isaac Luke that swung the game.

If the team play like that each week then they will be awfully hard to stop in the back end of the season. Even at this stage the $10 @ bet365 looks appealing for a first premiership title.


Up next: The Warriors ($2.35) travel to Melbourne to play the Storm at AAMI Park with both teams on the short back up on ANZAC Day.





If Manly weren’t panicking after being hammered at home by the Tigers a fortnight ago, they should be now.

The Sea Eagles were thrashed by Parramatta who finally recorded their first win of the season in a 44-10 rout at ANZ Stadium.

It is obvious the Jackson Hastings saga has been detrimental to the club but could there be more trouble brewing below the surface for Trent Barrett and his team?


Up next: Remarkably they are starting favourites ($1.63) against the positive Newcastle Knights but Nathan Brown’s side are without Mitchell Pearce which makes their task a heck of a lot harder.





Most corporate bookies have put the Storm back on top of premiership markets following their 34-20 win over Brisbane at Suncorp Stadium last Friday night.

Craig Bellamy’s side has clicked in attack the past fortnight in racking up 74 points and the move to drop Brodie Croft in favour of Ryley Jacks has paid dividends in the interim for the side.


Melbourne ($5.50 @ bet365) has now replaced the Dragons ($6.50) at the top of the market while the Roosters ($7) are the only side under double figures with New Zealand heading the rest at $10.
