32-30-0 (+6.84)

Initial lean was Broncos but I'm warming to the Sharks. Only thing not on their side tonight is past history at tonight's venue. Ben Te'o is a massive loss for the Baby Doncs IMO. Will have a play up closer to kick-off.

Tweet, tweet. Bookie propaganda...

#NRLBriCro - @BrisbaneBroncos ($1.6) have won their last 5 matches against @Cronulla_Sharks ($2.62) by average of 22 points -...

Worth noting the wins this season without Gallen and/or Carney have all been at Toyota Park...

If the scores are close in the second half, the sharks wont get a penalty in the second half

Sticking with my first lean...

Cronulla Sharks at Brisbane Broncos

The play...

Broncos -4.5 (2 units)

Sharks in a hostile environment without their 'playmakers'. Line suggests Brisbane gets it done. In all honesty a team missing virtually it's entire pack shouldn't be favored by more than 2. has turned into somewhat of a 'contarian' play...

Should just avoid Friday nights. Sharks are legit contenders ladies and gentlemen.

Peter Wallace

Dude has played above his head all year, eventually he had to revert back to the Peter Wallace we're accustomed too...

TO be fair to Wallace, he's getting SFA from Corey Norman every other week. The kid has clearly been reading too much of his own press from the first few weeks of the season. 

Got a feeling he'll be the Mitchell Johnson of Rugby League

Was on the Knights last night but was out and about so didn't post. Won't include it in the YTD.

adding...

North Queensland Cowboys at New Zealand Warriors

The play...

Warriors -6.5 $1.38 (3 units)

Huge game for the Warriors all things considered. Taking the box route with the alternate line. Like the Cuzzies to roll but the possibility of a late Bowen linebreak when the Warriors are up 18 kept me off the 14.5. Hopefully New Zealand isn't complacent given the Cowboys absentees...

Last 5 games at Mt Smart Stadium, NZ (Thurston played in all 5 games)...

Thanks fellas.

The Warriors have won nine of their past 11 at Mt Smart - seven of those by double-figure margins. The Cowboys have won just won of their past four away from home, three of their four away wins this season coming against the teams currently in 12th-14th. All six of NZ's wins have come when scoring 26 points or more and all eight of their losses have come when scoring 22 points or less...
