This weekend has seem NRL tipsters go crazy, after some topsy turvey results. Here are Sundays and Mondays results: Click HERE for updated NRL Table and Points Ladder.
Canberra 37 def Roosters 28 The Raiders again showed how brutal in attack they can be at home. After a bad, ill-disciplined start – once the Raiders got some ball they showed some flair across the park. Carney is a future rep player, this guy at the age of 20 oozes class and the outside backs aren’t scared to throw it around. The Roosters are so close to clicking they can smell it, still committing silly errors – but trying so hard. Braith again best on field for the Roosters and their next win is only around the corner. Really need more in the forwards.
Wests 14 def Cronulla 12 A very dour affair at Campbelltown stadium, really the Tigers were lucky to snatch this game. They enjoyed more possession and simply couldn’t produce a try – mainly through poor last tackle options. They didn’t build pressure and went for the kill too early. Cronulla are slugging away and were unlucky not to bag the win, their defence must get a wrap and Kimmorley is playing with confidence – Greg Bird still unstoppable – this could be a good year for the Sharks.
Newcastle 23 def Souths 22 Heartstopper on the Central Coast, Newcastle performing very well after losing Joey. After a shaky start and a poor call from officials on a Souths no-try – this was just the ticket the Knights needed. Kicking away and snatching the win. The Knights are a team that can win most close games, if they get a sniff they will generally win. Be interesting to see how Souths bounce back after 2 losses on the trot.
Warriors 34 def Cowboys 14 NZ have really setup Mt Smart to be a graveyard this year. Playing amazing footy at home, NRL teams will be scared to travel there for sure. Beat the bench mark and maybe they can transfer the confidence into their away games. Witt and Crockett have been great buys and the forwards are still unstoppable.
