FRIDAY: South Sydney Rabbitohs V Manly Warringah Sea Eagles, 21.50NZT – ANZ Stadium
Lucky for Souths, they get a shot at redemption, but they’ll have to upset Manly who have shown no matter what adversity is thrown at them, they will overcome it.
The Sea Eagles have lost their last nine outings at ANZ Stadium, just one more thing for Manly to accomplish.
I’m sure Wayne Bennett will have last week’s result out of their minds, and ready for this do or die clash.
I really think this game will be a low scoring, tough, niggly game. I think the Rabbitohs will do just enough to win.
TIP: Rabbitohs 1-12
SATURDAY: Melbourne Storm V Parramatta Eels, 21.50NZT – AAMI Park
Earlier this season, the Storm put 60 points on the Eels. That will feel like a long time ago for both sides after week one of the finals.
Parramatta have to get off cloud nine early. Last week’s win won’t mean anything unless they can back it up.
Melbourne are clinical in this end of the season, and have to be just that.
The Eels confidence versus Melbourne’s grit. This will be another brilliant game.
TIP: Storm 1-12
