Tigers vs Raiders
Kicking off the round we have the Tigers hosting the Raiders. The Raiders are coming off a 7-point victory away to the Rabbitohs last week while the Tigers should be well rested after the bye. Although the Tigers sit in 15th spot on the ladder, they have been in great form, with all 3 of their wins coming in their last 4 games. The Raiders have won 6 of their last 7.
In recent history the Raiders have dominated this fixture, winning the past 5 encounters. While the Tigers have been in good form, there is no doubt that the Raiders are the better side. Additionally, it wouldn’t surprise me to see Api Koirsau rested, as this game is just 2 days after Origin, where he should play close to if not 80 minutes. I think the Raiders take this one.
|Raiders to win||$1.70|
|Halftime/Fulltime Double – Raiders/Raiders||$2.30|
Tigers: 1. Jahream Bula 2. David Nofoaluma 3. Starford To'a 4. Tommy Talau 5. Junior Tupou 6. Brandon Wakeham 7. Luke Brooks 8. Stefano Utoikamanu 9. Apisai Koroisau 10. David Klemmer 11. Isaiah Papali’I 12. John Bateman 13. Fonua Pole 14. Jake Simpkin 15. Alex Twal 16. Asu Kepaoa 17. Alex Seyfarth

Warriors vs Dolphins
Our first game on Saturday sees the Warriors hosting the Dolphins. The Warriors are coming off a poor performance, losing to a depleted Broncos side, while the Dolphins are coming off a 14-point win against the Dragons. This is the first meeting of these two sides, and it should be a close one. The Warriors are in poor form coming into this one, losing 4 of their last 5 while the Dolphins have won 3 of their last 5 and sit in 6th spot.
I am expecting both Tabuai-Fidow and Gilbert to back up from Origin and if they do, I can see them beating this suffering Warriors side. Egan will be racing against the clock to return from a calf injury and with Freddy Lussick failing an HIA last week and Jazz Tevaga out with a leg injury, they could be without their first 3 choices at hooker. This adds to an already extensive injury list which has taken its toll on the Warriors lately. In New Zealand, this one should be a close game but I can definitely see a Dolphins upset.
|Dolphins to win||$2.45|
|Either team by 1-12||$1.80|
Warriors: 1. Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad 2. Dallin Watene-Zelezniak 3. Rocco Berry 4. Adam Pompey 5. Marcelo Montoya 6. Ronald Volkman 7. Shaun Johnson 8. Addin Fonua-Blake 9. Wayde Egan 10. Bunty Afoa 11. Jackson Ford 12. Marata Niukore 13. Tohu Harris 14. Mitch Barnett 15. Bayley Sironen 16. Josh Curran 17. Tom Ale
Dolphins: 1. Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow 2. Jamayne Isaako 3. Euan Aitken 4. Brenko Lee 5. Tesi Niu 6. Kodi Nikorima 7. Isaiya Katoa 8. Jesse Bromwich 9. Jeremy Marhsall-King 10. Jarrod Wallace 11. Kenny Bromwich 12. Connelly Lemuelu 13. Tom Gilbert 14. Anthony Milford 15. Mark Nicholls 16. Ray Stone 17. Herman Ese’ese
Titans vs Rabbitohs
Our second game of Saturday sees the Titans hosting the Rabbitohs. The Rabbitohs suffered a tough loss to the Raiders, slipping down to 6th place after leading the competition a few weeks ago, while the Titans had the bye, giving them a much-needed rest after losing their last 2 games. The big news here is that Latrell Mitchell has injured his calf and will miss Origin and you would assume he won’t be playing on Saturday. The real question here is do Fifita, Tino, Murray and Arrow back up and will Campbell Graham play? I think they all will yet likely play reduced minutes here for all but Graham.
The Rabbitohs without Latrell are a completely different side yet still have the firepower of Cody Walker, who is replicating his 2021 season, racking up 18 try assists and 22 line break assists in just 13 games! Once again, I think this one will be a close affair, but I think there will be lots of points up for grabs, with both sides averaging over 23 points scored per game.
|Either team by 6 or less||$2.85|
Titans: 1. Jayden Campbell 2. Phillip Sami 3. Brian Kelly 4. Aaron Schoupp 5. Jojo Fifita 6. Kieran Foran 7. Tanah Boyd 8. Moeaki Fotuaika 9. Chris Randall 10. Tino Fa’asuamaleaui 11. David Fifita 12. Joe Stimson 13. Isaac Liu 14. Kruise Leeming 15. Erin Clark 16. Klese Haas 17. Joe Vuna
Rabbitohs: 1. Blake Taaffe 2. Alex Johnston 3. Isaiah Tass 4. Campbell Graham 5. Taane Milne 6. Cody Walker 7. Lachlan Ilias 8. Tevita Tatola 9. Damien Cook 10. Thomas Burgess 11. Keaon Koloamatangi 12. Jacob Host 13. Cameron Murray 14. Jai Arrow 15. Liam Knights 16. Hame Sele 17. Michael Chee-Kam
Sharks vs Broncos
Our final game of Super Saturday sees the Sharks hosting the Broncos. Both sides have been in fine form this year, with the Sharks sitting in 2nd place while the Broncos sit in 3rd place. The Broncos have a host of stars playing State of Origin this week and I expect a rest or reduced minutes for most. On the other hand, the Sharks only have Nicho Hynes playing off the bench, which should leave him fit to play 80 minutes on Saturday night.
When both fully fit this is a heavyweight clash, however, I think Broncos will be battered and bruised due to State of Origin, giving the Sharks a relatively comfortable win in front of their home fans.
|Halftime/Fulltime Double – Sharks/Sharks||$2.25|
|Sharks -2.5 First half||$2.00|
Sharks: 1. William Kennedy 2. Sione Katoa 3. Jesse Ramien 4. Siosifa Talakai 5. Ronaldo Mulitalo 6. Matt Moylan 7. Nicho Hynes 8. Braden Hamlin-Uele 9. Blayke Brailey 10. Royce Hunt 11. Briton Nikora 12. Teig Wilton 13. Dale Finucane 14. Connor Tracey 15. Jack Williams 16. Wade Graham 17. Oregon Kaufus
Broncos: 1. Reece Walsh 2. Selwyn Cobbo 3. Kotoni Staggs 4. Herbie Farnworth 5. Corey Oates 6. Ezra Mam 7. Adam Reynolds 8. Corey Jensen 9. Billy Walters 10. Payne Haas 11. Kurt Capewell 12. Jordan Riki 13. Pat Carrigan 14. Cory Paix 15. 16. Kobe Hetherington 17. Martin Tapau
Roosters vs Bulldogs
Kicking off a triple header on Sunday we have the Roosters hosting the Bulldogs in Gosford. Both these sides have underperformed this season, with the Roosters sitting in 10th position while the Bulldogs are 14th. Both sides are also impacted heavily by injury and suspension, with the Roosters missing Sam Walker, Brandon Smith and Victor Radley but are hoping to welcome back Kiwi pair Joey Manu and JWH. The Bulldogs will be hoping Pangai Junior and Addo-Carr back up from Origin as will the Roosters with James Tedesco and Lindsay Collins.
While they have been poor this season, I think the Roosters are the far better outfit here and if they can have discipline in defense, not giving away too many sinbins, they should be too good here. The Roosters have struggled to score points, but the Bulldogs have conceded the 4th most points in the competition, and I am expecting a big performance from James Tedesco to get the Roosters over the line here.
|Halftime/Fulltime Double – Roosters/Roosters||$1.80|
|Roosters to win both halves||$2.30|
Roosters: 1. James Tedesco 2. Jaxson Paulo 3. Joseph Suaalii 4. Billy Smith 5. Daniel Tupou 6. Joey Manu 7. Luke Keary 8. Jared Waerea-Hargreaves 9. Jake Turpin 10. Lindsay Collins 11. Egan Butcher 12. Sitili Tupouniua 13. Nat Butcher 14. Drew Hutchison 15. Nathan Brown 16. Angus Crichton 17. Matt Lodge
Bulldogs: 1. Hayze Perham 2. Jacob Kiraz 3. Jake Averillo 4. Paul Alamoti 5. Josh Addo-Carr 6. Karl Oloapu 7. Matt Burton 8. Max King 9. Reed Mahoney 10. Tevita Pangai Junior 11. Corey Waddell 12. Jacob Preston 13. Raymond Faitala-Mariner 14. Harrison Edwards 15. Jayden Okunbor 16. Kurtis Morrin 17. Franklin Pele
Cowboys vs Storm
Our second game on Sunday sees the Cowboys hosting the Storm. The Cowboys put up a good fight last week while missing troops against the Eels but fell short, moving them down to an embarrassing 16th position while the 4th place Storm had the bye. The Cowboys should have Origin stars Holmes, Taulagi, Cotter and 18th man Dearden fit after a 4-day rest and will welcome back Nanai from suspension as well as hopefully Taumalolo from injury. The Storm should be close to full strength, with only Munster and Grant playing origin and both are expected to back up.
The Storm have absolutely dominated this fixture, winning 14 of the last 15 encounters. While the Cowboys are undoubtedly improved on paper in comparison to recent weeks, the Storm are the better outfit here and will be far better rested. I expect them to win this game yet think the Cowboys can put up a good fight, finally having a lot of their troops back from injury who they have missed in recent weeks.
|Either team by 6 or less||$2.90|
|Either team by 1-12||$1.85|
Cowboys: 1. Scott Drinkwater 2. Kyle Feldt 3. Valentine Holmes 4. Peta Hiku 5. Murray Taulahi 6. Tom Dearden 7. Chad Townsend 8. Reuben Cotter 9. Reece Robson 10. Coen Hess 11. Jeremiah Nanai 12. Luciano Leilua 13. Jason Taumalolo 14. Jake Granville 15. Heilum Luki 16. Griffin Neame 17. Jordan Mclean
Storm: 1. Nick Meaney 2. Will Warbrick 3. Reimis Smith 4. Justin Olam 5. Xavier Coates 6. Cameron Munster 7. Jahrome Hughes 8. Nelson Asofa-Solomona 9. Harry Grant 10. Christian Welch 11. Trent Loiero 12. Chris Lewis 13. Josh King 14. Grant Anderson 15. Aaron Pene 16. Alec MacDonald 17. Tui Kamikamica
Panthers vs Dragons
Our final game of the round sees the Panthers hosting the Dragons. This Panthers have been in great form, winning 3 in a row and sitting on top of the ladder after a slow start to the season, while the Dragons are struggling, sitting in last spot. The Panthers are no doubt the better side, but the question is will Ivan Cleary rest his players? The Panthers have To’o, Crichton, Luai, Cleary, Yeo and Martin all playing Origin and even though they play on Sunday it would not surprise me to see one or two of them rested, especially with rumors surrounding Nathan Cleary of an infected tooth. On the other hand, the Dragons only have Ben Hunt playing Origin and with their current ladder position I expect him to play.
While the Dragons have been poor this year, they are unlucky to be on bottom, losing 6/6 games that have been decided by 6 points or less. I think it is worth taking the punt that the Panthers will rest some players here and although I don’t think they will win, the line seems overs to me on the Dragons.
|Dragons +6.5 first half||$1.85|
Panthers: 1. Dylan Edwards 2. Sunia Turuva 3. Izack Tago 4. Stephen Crichton 5. Brian To’o 6. Jarome Luai 7. Jack Cogger 8. Moses Leota 9. Soni Luke 10. James Fisher-Harris 11. Scott Sorensen 12. Zac Hosking 13. Mitch Kenny 14. Spencer Leniu 15. Lindsay Smith 16. Liam Martin 17. Matt Eisenhuth
Dragons: 1. Tyrell Sloan 2. Mat Feagai 3. Moses Suli 4. Zac Lomax 5. Mikaele Ravalawa 6. Talatau Amone 7. Ben Hunt 8. Francis Molo 9. Jacob Liddle 10. Michael Molo 11. Jack Bird 12. Jaydn Su'A 13. Jack de Belin 14. Jayden Sullivan 15. Toby Couchman 16. Ben Murdoch-Masila 17. Josh Kerr
