2016 NRL Round 5 Betting Multi


The 2016 NRL round 5 action returns on Thursday night and we preview five matches and offer our betting multi!

On Thursday night we will be backing the Rabbitohs to bounce back from consecutive defeats as they take on the Sea Eagles at Brookvale oval. Manly will be playing its third match in ten days and they will be without their 10 million dollar man Daly Cherry-Evans who suffered a high ankle sprain in their narrow victory against the Roosters on Saturday night. The Bunnies were dominated against the Bulldogs and were out muscled in the middle of the field, however they will be boosted by the return of Sam Burgess and possibly his brother Thomas this weekend. Greg Inglis will need to improve his performance and as he has come under a lot of scrutiny over the last two week’s he is surely due to lift in this one.

The Sharks earned a big victory against the Storm on Monday as they handed them their first loss of the season. We are backing them to win against the Tigers after showing a lot of strong defence and they should be boosted by the return of Paul Gallen who narrowly missed out on returning to action against the Storm. The Sharks forward pack outmuscled the Storm as they came out of the blocks strongly and immediately put the Storm on the back foot. If they come out with a similar mindset this weekend they will be able to do the same as they have a much larger side than the Tigers. Meanwhile Wests were held scoreless by the Eels as their reliance on James Tedesco to produce a try out of nothing was evident. They will need to attempt to create more chances from other areas this weekend if they are going to stand a chance against the Sharks, however we expect the away side to earn a comfortable victory.

The Roosters were unfortunate not to get the monkey off their back and earn their first win of the season with a controversial bunker decision going against them. They showed a lot of improvement and Blake Fergurson had a great game as he showed his experience in scoring a try and creating another for SKD. However, they face a Warriors outfit that will be full of confidence after finally gelling together against the Knights in the second half. They ran away with the match as Shaun Johnson found the form he was showing last season before his injury whilst Roger Tuivasa-Sheck and Isaac Luke had their best games for their new club. Ben Matulino will be dominant again up front and the Warriors will come away with back-to-back victories as the Roosters season continues to deteriorate.

The Parramatta Eels are a rejuvenated side this season as they have turned into the best defensive side in the competition. They kept the Tigers scoreless on Monday and are averaging less than 10 points against them across four games this season. Their forward pack has been dominant whilst Kieran Foran has been steering the team around well and showing a lot of leadership for the side. This has helped Corey Norman as it allows him to be freer in attack. The Panthers lost to the Dragons on the weekend as their attack was lacking without fullback Matt Moylan at the back. He is likely to return this weekend, which will be a massive boost but it won’t be enough as the Eels defence has been too strong to crack.

In our final leg we will be taking the Bulldogs to defeat the Raiders on home soil. They came out firing against the Rabbitohs and made 100m in their opening set and didn’t look back. They raced away with the contest as their forwards returned to the form they showed in the opening match of the season. Meanwhile the Raiders have let big leads slip in their past two matches and it can be contributed to the side being without their starting halves Aiden Seizer and Blake Austin. The Bulldogs forwards will lay the platform for them and Moses Mbye and Will Hopoate will take advantage of the space created to contribute to the side’s victory.
