2017 NRL Multi Round 3
The 2017 NRL season continues this weekend and we have taken a look at the five best value matches and to make our Round 3 Multi of the Week.
To kick things off we will be backing the Melbourne Storm to continue their winning start to the season and defeat the Brisbane Broncos on home soil. The Storm will be welcoming back their long time servant Billy Slater this weekend who has spent the best part of two years rehabing his injured shoulder. His return at fullback will move Cameron Munster into the halves and while we think it won’t be an easy transition we believe he will be solid ball runner to compliment the playmaker and game controller Cooper Cronk. The Broncos suffered another golden point loss to the Cowboys last week and after two tough starts to the season they are travelling again and to Melbourne. While the halves pairing of Anthony Milford and Ben Hunt have had a solid start to the season we don’t believe they will be creative enough to crack the Storm’s strong defence enough to earn the victory.
In our second leg we will be predicting the Eels to make it three from three to start the season and defeat the Titans. The Eels have been brilliant in their opening two games in both attack and defence. Corey Norman is steering his side around the park well while creating a lot of chances for his side. Meanwhile the Titans have an injury crisis with a lot of their star players on the sidelines, including two of their spine. Nathan Peats and Jarryd Hayne are two massive losses and they would have been primed for big games against their former club. We believe the Eels will win this one comfortably after the Titans lost against the Knights last week and the Roosters in round 1.
The Panthers host the Roosters on Saturday night and we believe the Penrtih side will earn the win. They bounced back tremendously last week to humilate the Tigers at Campbelltown. It was one week after they had 40 points put on them by the Dragons. Matt Moylan was dominant at fullback and played like a third half. He created multiple opportunities for his side and took a lot of pressure off Nathan Cleary and Te Marie Martin. They will be without Bryce Cartwright while the Roosters will miss Blake Fergurson. Luke Keary’s opening two games for the Roosters have been spectacular and Mitchell Pearce has benefited from it. The side will be hoping the halves paring can have another great game but we believe it is their defence that will let them down.
In our fourth leg we will be predicting the North Queensland Cowboys to overcome their injuries to defeat the Manly Sea Eagles. The Cowboys have lost Matt Scott (ACL), Lachlan Coote (calf) and Antonio Winterstein (Broken forearm) but they have great replacements in Coen Hess, Kalyn Ponga and Javid Bowen. Meanwhile the Sea Eagles have suffered two losses to start the season and have a forward pack that is getting run over the top of. Jason Tuamalolo could have a field day while Michael Morgan and the other backs will be hanging off him for the offload. The Cowboys wil win this one comfortably, especially on home soil.
In the final leg of our multi we are backing the Sharks to beat the Dragons to wrap up our multi. The Sharks came out and made a statement last week after a lot of experts had written the defending champions off after suffering a loss at home to the Broncos in the opening game of the season. The 42-16 victory was dominant and Wade Graham was able to grab a hattrick. James Maloney has been terrific this season and the bench and forward pack has been strong. We believe they will get the upperhand against a Dragons pack that was sloppy on the weekend against the Eels. They dropped a lot of ball and were caught out by the pace of the Parramatta side. The Sharks will be far too superior and it could be another long day
