The Cowboys will be hell bent on making amens for last weekend's surprise slip-up, but even without that factor, the ridiculous scheduling won't do the Roosters any favours whatsoever. They'll have just a four day turnaround from a bruising and emotionally draining clash against the Dragons.
Cowboys at $1.25 represent good "banker" value in a weekend multi.
* The Dragons will also do it very tough for the reasons mentioned above, when they tackle the Storm in Melbourne. The hosts have had a bit of fortune on the injury front, with halfback Cronk and the white-hot Greg Ingliss both likely to suit up. The Dragons meantime will miss Ryles, Naiqama, Young, Gorrell and possibly Head due to injuries. Despite all that, the Storm have still been afforded two and a half points start at home.
* The Brisbane v Canberra clash could present a nice 'under' play on the total game points if the total is set in the mid to high 40's. All seven of Brisbane's games have gone under the set total this season, while Canberra are methodical plodders.
Flamb i thought you would have the AFL aswell with Bombers comin of 4 day break against me Hawks who's off 9 days rest!!!
Yeah Cowboys at home are unstoppable especially when the Roosters dont have much rest,Cowboys should topple 40+ imo and maybe break the 50!!
Stroms look real good against the Dragons,theyre onsong atm n playin incredible footy like in the middle of last yr!!!!Crocker seems to be a great pic up by them,toughen them up in the middle!!!Brisbane/Canberra game i do remember slightly last yr when the Broncos got up cos i was on the damn Raiders at that time,Unders does look good in this game!!!
