The all important Round 25 kicks-off tonight with two bumper clashes – both critical for the outcome of the NRL Table and the Top 8 finish.
Game 1; North Queensland Cowboys v Canterbury Bulldogs
While being played in steamy Queensland conditions at Dairy Farmers Stadium, the Bulldogs are going into this game as the favourites. Rumours coming out of the Cowboys suggest they may rest some stars, as they are guaranteed 3rd spot on the NRL Table. The Bulldogs will be fired up despite the loss of Mark O’Meley and will look to make amends for the heavy loss last week. Bulldogs should win this one and set the scene nicely for their finals campaign.
Game 2; Wests Tigers v Newcastle Knights
The struggler’s of 2007 versus the most inconsistent side of 2007. If the Knights could somehow conjure up a win here; considering their horror year and now their king Andrew Johns admitting career long drug use – it would probably go close to the biggest upset of all time. The Wests Tigers have everything to play for and after last weeks slap in the face and a fitter Robbie Farah they should have the ammunition. If the Tigers get home, they face a long wait to watch other results.
