Check out all our expert NRL tips for Round 20 below:
Game 1 – Newcastle Knights vs Wests Tigers, Friday 14th July, 8pm
The Tigers are like a punch drunk boxer, going from one disaster to another. They had a dig against the Sharks last weekend yet were still smacked by 20 plus points. The Knights are fresh off a bye and before that, a big win over the Bulldogs. With the Knights still a rough chance of making the Finals, they will go hard and win 13 plus.
Game 2 – Canterbury Bulldogs vs Brisbane Broncos, Saturday 15th July, 3pm
Booed off by their own fans after being thumped by Newcastle two weeks ago, the Doggies responded well with a good win over an albeit weakened Souths team last weekend. Luck has favoured them again, getting the Broncos straight after Origin, but Brisbane should still be too strong. I like the Broncos halftime / fulltime option.
Game 3 – Manly Sea Eagles vs North Queensland Cowboys, Saturday 15th July, 5.30pm
With a good win over the Roosters and a bye, the Sea Eagles are back in the Finals race and could be in the top eight by the end of the weekend with a win over the Cowboys. Playing at home against a team with several players backing up from Origin they are a chance. I think the Cowboys will win but like Manly with the start.
Game 4 – Sydney Roosters vs Melbourne Storm, Saturday 15th July, 7.35pm
It’s been a tough season for the Roosters with injuries and suspensions, and it doesn’t get any easier in what shapes as a must-win game against the Storm. If Melbourne’s Origin contingent backs up on Saturday night, I can’t see the Roosters winning and like the Storm given the start, even though the game is away from home.
Game 5 – New Zealand Warriors vs Cronulla Sharks, Sunday 16th July, 2pm
This game shapes as a ripper between two of the genuine top four contenders this season. The Warriors are one of the year’s big improvers, while the Sharks are building on a solid 2022 season. I can’t see much between them – but I like the Warriors at home by 1-12.
Game 6 – Dolphins vs Penrith Panthers, Sunday 16th July, 4.05pm
After a tough few weeks, the Dolphins got their Finals campaign back on track with that dramatic win over the Titans last weekend and have a few troops coming back. But the Panthers will also be delighted Origin is over and they can get on with their three-peat campaign. They should be too classy – take them with the halftime / fulltime double.
Game 7 – Parramatta Eels vs Gold Coast Titans, Sunday 16th July, 6.15pm
Without their ‘big three’ – Gutho, RCG and Mitch Moses – the Eels were thrashed by the Warriors last week but should be a lot more competitive on Sunday night against a Titans team that also welcomes back several strike players. The Eels should win what looks like a high scoring game between two teams that love to throw the ball around – take the OVERS on Dabble.
