Still think Billy will be a step slow, saw a picture of him from their most recent training session and his leg was strapped the darn up.

I'd have thought Bellamy would have kept him on the sidelines until next week which could mean he really wants to win this one...

Dragons...



Couple good games tonight.

Doubt Keating goes for the Dogs but Hasler is well noted for the occasional 'mind darn'. Cows haven't won at ANZ since 2006 (7 losses). Dogs have won the last 4 H2H.

Maxwell the 'main' ref tonight in Perth. He is one of the few refs the Warriors have a favorable record with, NZ is 10-5 all time with the Beak reffing...

The Warriors ONLY travelled to Perth yesterday, from Auckland....'Door to door that is 10 hours, plus the time difference of about 4 hours.........

This has over written all over it

Too tough to make a call in the first game so laid off. Negative situational aspects for both clubs.

adding...

New Zealand Warriors at Manly Sea Eagles

The play...

Warriors +5.5 (2 units)

Riding the underachiever once again. This is basically the Warriors last hurrah if they want to make the 8, lose and it's goodnight nurse. Also a situational flat spot for Manly even though they lost. Line very short all things considered...

'Manly off an emotional game against the Dogs last week, so a possible flat spot even though they lost'...

Pricks held the spread, thankfully. NZW can kiss their finals hopes goodbye...

Fellas...



Leaning Knights but subject to change.

Raiders 6-18 ATS as a favorite since 2010 (5-15 ATS at home).

Raiders are 8-20 ATS in day games the last 3 seasons.

That being said Knights laying the smackdown on the Seagles, coming back from an 18 point deficit to win in Auckland, then going down to shitty Canberra and getting the win just doesn't sound right.

Canberra 1-6 off a win this season, Knights almost as bad going 2-5 off a win...

Rod...



Canberra concede 29 points per home game this season and spanked the Knights in Newcastle the last time they played. Knights got booed off the park by the fans they were that bad - since then Newcastle has gone 4-1...

Would seem that way Phat.

adding...

Newcastle Knights at Canberra Raiders

The play...

Knights +4.5 (2 units)

Went with it. Basically a finals game for both clubs so I'll take the points. Raiders stink it up consistently in the capital and garbage like that is psychological. Once again the line seems a little short all things considered. Furner does own Wayne though...

I think the Green Machine plays a lot better this week at home for their fans and the Knights struggle a little with the travel they have had of late.

BUT THE OVER LOOKS LIKE GOLD

If a team doesn't believe they can win at home, then they won't. Canberra doesn't believe...
