Even though Parra are my team, im leaning on Newcastle at home with that price.

Also like Melbourne away, theyve always performed well in NZ and with the disruptions the Warriros have had i Think $2.10 is good value.

Agree with ya Andrew on both pics,actually been lookin at them myself a feel just as strong that Newcastle with fully strength side will be more then a handful for the Eels,also Melbourne are are playin unbelieveable ball atm n should get over the line in New Zealand!Lookin at the Broncos over Cowboys,also think theres value there,havent looked at the list but feel its pretty strong lineup with a nice pic up of St George Matthew Innes!!!!!There goal kicking will no longer be a problem as long as his there for the time!!!Just as excited as you are Andrew and wait for AFL aswell!!!

The parra v newcastle game on saturday night has an interesting twist to it now that is was confirmed Smith will coach the Knights next year, effectively a direct swap of coaches to the respective teams

Gee Andrew, if the Eels cant beat Newcastle your in for a pretty disappointing year.

I just hope for your sake they sack your spanker of a coach asap, but known your luck they'll probably replace him with a donkey like Rocket Reddy!!

Just one bet for me so far for tomorrow night.

Manly Sea Eagles (-10.5) v Canberra Raiders - 3 units x $1.90 (Bet365)

Last year we saw the addition of Ben Kennedy lift the Sea Eagles from cellar dwellers to a playoff team. This season they have added a quality half back and centre in Matt Orford and Steve Bell and once again this should make a huge difference.

The addition of Orford means Manly now have a quality set of halves, something they definitely did not have for the back half of last year as they opted to play with an extra forward instead of a 5/8.

Bell is also a massive upgrade as he replaces veteran centre Terry Hill and when you add him to a back line that already features noted speedsters in Brett Stewart and Chris Hicks you have the recipe for plenty of points.

Manly also have a big, mobile pack that will give plenty of teams problems this season assuming they stay relatively injury free.

Another advantage for Manly is thier home ground. They won their first seven games at home last season by an average of 18 points, before their late season slide saw them end with an 8-4 record.

Canberra were woeful on the road last year going 3-9. In those 9 losses the margin of defeat was 16ppg and that was with a slightly stronger side than they have this season.

Canberra will struggle to contain Manly as they have a relatively inexperienced back line and a smaller forward pack, their only saving grace is the skill of Schifcofske and Smith, but those two alone will not be able to save them tomorrow night

I will be anxiously waiting to see what the total is set at. If it is something around 50 points I will definitely be on the over as well.

Cheers,

Sparks

I think that is my least bias post concerning Manly that I have ever written. Watch them towel up Canberra tonight in front of a sellout Brookvale Oval.

I also forgot to mention that the two times Manly and Canberra played last year the Sea Eagles won 36-14 and 36-18.

Cheers,

Sparks

Going with gut instincts right from the start when looking at this game between the Knights n Eels,last yr Knights touched them up while the Eels were hot!!This game the Knights are even stronger n with Jones n Buderus wanting to have a good start especially infront of their home fans!!!!HH2 matchup favours the Knights stright away with where the game is gonna be won n thats with the halves n hookers,how can you go past the best 2 in the Business!!!!!This game should be an absolute gimme IMO but sonce alot o f shit has been happening with both these clubs who knows what fireworks are to come!!!

40 units on Newcastle Knights 1.80 over Paramatta Eels- All explained above!!!!

Ohter leans on Manly -10.5!!!Waiting for Broncos game 2morro aswell n Storms are tempting!!!!

going to have a punt with the cowboys, trying to ignore the two teams H2h for a moment, I don't see why the broncos should be favourite for this game, Cowboys are the best QLD team by a country mile

40 units on Brisbane Broncos 1.80 over North Queensland Cowboys- Cowboys in for a rude awakening when the real men come out to play,Broncos forward pack looks mean as,plus Cowboys lost Paul Rauhihi!!!!Broncos by 10+ IMO!!!

Lean on the Stroms but not sure how the Warriors gonna come out!!!
