2017 NRL Multi Round 23

The 2017 NRL season continues this weekend and we take a look at the best value head-to-head matches of Round 23 for our weekly NRL Multi.

To kick start our multi we will be predicting the South Sydney Rabbitohs to earn the victory over the Canterbury Bulldogs. The Rabbitohs were able to pull a rabbit out of the hat last week to overturn a 10-point deficit with eight minutes remaining to defeat the Dragons. It is a big victory for a side that had its final aspirations dashed a few weeks ago. The Rabbitohs have had their troubles defensively but they are a far better attacking side than the Bulldogs. Canterbury have scored the least amount of points of any team and we can’t see that changing despite Das Hasler’s ‘brilliant idea’ to move Chase Stanley into the halfback role. We are predicting them to struggle to find the line and for the Bunnies to do enough to earn a win.

In the second leg of our multi we are predicting the Newcastle Knights’ winning streak to come to an end at the hands of the Parramatta Eels. It is the first time these two sides have met at the ANZ venue since their 2001 grand final, which the Knights won, but we believe it will be a different outcome. The Knights have been rewarded for their desire this season with two wins over the last fortnight but unfortunately they won’t make it three. The side has improved its second half performances and has played for the full 80-minutes but they won’t be enough for them to stop the Parramatta Eels who are looking to move into the top eight. The spine of Cameron King, Mitchell Moses, Corey Norman and Bevan French is only in its early days after injuries forced a new hooker an fullback but the side produced two convincing wins in their last fortnight of action. We are predicting them to come out on top against the Knights.

In the third leg of our multi we will be predicting the Cronulla Sharks to earn the victory on the road against the Brisbane Broncos. The Sharks suffered a loss against the Raiders last week at home and they have proved this year they bounce back after a defeat. The side is the defending premiers and while they haven’t reached their potential they are still sitting in the top four. Meanwhile the Broncos are coming off a 54-0 victory against the Titans. The side cruised to the win on the back of a dominant second half performance. They always play better on home soil but we are predicting the forward pack of the Sharks to step up in this one and lead the side to victory.

The Canberra Raiders kept their season alive last week with a convincing win over the defending premiers the Sharks. We are predicting them to extend that one week longer by defeating the New Zealand Warriors on the road. The Raiders overcame a slow start to get the upper hand in the middle of the field and it allowed for their backs to shine. They are facing a weaker forward pack this Sunday afternoon and we believe they will march down the field with ease. Meanwhile the Warriors haven’t shown much effort over the last two games and we believe the side will be on the wrong end of a large defeat.

For the final leg of our multi we will be backing the Manly Sea Eagles to get one over the Wests Tigers on the road. The Sea Eagles have been the best side on the road this year and they were able to snap a two game losing streak last week to defeat the second placed Sydney Roosters. It kept their hopes of finishing in the top four alive while it also came close to securing their top eight position. They will want to make easy work of a Tigers side that is fighting to avoid the wooden spoon.
