Roosters v Rabbitohs

Allianz Stadium, 7.50pm

“The Roosters and the Rabbitohs have ignited a war of words on social media this week, which just adds to the spice. I thought the Souths showed a heap of guts last weekend without Sam Burgess, but the Roosters are just starting to find a little bit more rhythm.

Storm v Knights

AAMI Park, 6pm

“The Storm are raging hot favourites, and I reckon the TAB is suggesting they can’t lose three in a row and that’s logical, but I think the Knights are in this one up to their eyeballs.”

Tip: Storm by 6

Dragons v Sharks

WIN Stadium, 7.50pm

“Can anyone stop the Dragons? If they can it’s their rivals in the Sharks, who were bitterly disappointing last week. Rarely are they just that two in a row, and I think the Sharks might get up in an upset.”

Warriors v Broncos

Mt Smart Stadium, 3pm

“Grab a 50 cent coin out of your pocket, toss it in the air and there’s you’re decision made. Everything is going against the Broncos, everything is going for the Warriors. I think we’ll see a different Broncos side this weekend, they will grind and grind and there won’t be much footy movement, but I think the Warriors once again.”

Tip: Warriors by 6

Cowboys v Bulldogs

1300SMILES Stadium, 5.30pm

“Pick that 50 cent coin back up, and toss it in the air again! The Cowboys were a mess last week, the Bulldogs have been close on so many occasions already this year, they’re just leaving points out there. I’m expecting the Cowboys to turn it around.”

Tip: Cowboys by 14

Raiders v Eels

GIO Stadium, 7.35pm

“The heart says Parra and the head says Parra as well, especially with Gutho (Clint Gutherson) back. There were huge signs of improvement for the Eels last start, but they just froze at the wrong time and looked like they were playing without confidence.”

Tip: Eels by 6

Panthers v Titans

Panthers Stadium, 2pm

“I was watching the Titans last weekend and they looked absolutely fabulous against Manly. They played a really attractive style of footy, everyone did their little things, Jai Arrow I think is a superstar, and I think they’ll push the Panthers as far as you can push someone without winning.”

Sea Eagles v Tigers

Lottoland, 4.10pm

“The Sea Eagles were disappointing in Gladstone, they get to go home to the comfortable surroundings of Brookvale Oval, they are going to try and bash the Tigers and that’s what the Tigers’ strength has been, simplicity, completion and emotion. I think the Tigers are playing a brand of football that’s really hard to beat.”
