2016 NRL Round 6

Can you believe we’re already at Round 6 of the 2016 NRL season? It’s been an interesting year so far and it is only just the beginning. Last week was about as standard as a round can be. The expected results all got up, though some of the games were closer than anticipated. Let’s take a look at a few games from this week with our 2016 NRL Round 6 betting tips!

South Sydney Rabbitohs Vs Sydney Roosters (Friday, April 8)

Friday night will mark the 33rd time in the modern era these two great teams have faced off. The Roosters have 21 victories in the bag and the remaining 11 go to the Rabbitohs. In recent times, the Rabbitohs have won three of the last four which includes a massive 32-point win.

It’s safe to say, the Roosters are ST-RU-GG-LING this season. They are sitting on the bottom of the ladder with an 0-5 record. They came close last week, but ended up losing to the Warriors in a nail-biting golden point thriller. This week they’ve stuck with the same team of 17. The Roosters are, however, simply no longer in the same league as the Rabbitohs.

The Rabbitohs aren’t quite where they were in 2014, but they’re pretty damn close. Last week they knocked off the Sea Eagles at Brookvale. They are currently sitting 5th on the ladder with 3 wins 2 loses. The Bunnies welcome back Bryson Goodwin, moving Michael Oldfield to the bench. Paul Carter has been named on the extended bench.

Round 1 set the tone for the Rooster season. It also set the tone for the Rabbitohs dominating teams. The result this week will show this. We expect the Bunnies to strike fast and not let up for the entire 80 minutes.

Bet On: South Sydney Rabbitohs +13 – $2.72 CrownBet

New Zealand Warriors Vs Manly Sea Eagles (Saturday, April 9)

This is potentially the most evenly matched game this week. The Warriors are coming off a golden point victory and the Sea Eagles are coming off a tight loss. Both teams have shown glimpses of improvement this season and both teams have the depth to play out the 80 minutes.

After missing a week with a knee injury, Jake Trbojevic returns to lock for Manly. Luke Burgess and Tom Symonds have also been named, with Tom in the 2nd Row and Luke on an extended bench. Feleti Mateo has been omitted, DCE is still out and Apisai Korisau is relishing the opportunity to prove himself to the Manly faithful. Last week he moved the ball 134 metres, had 11 hitups and 25 tackles, plus he topped it off with a try.

The Warriors are on and off this season. With 2 win and 3 losses, they’ll come in to this one on the back of two straight wins. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck scored a clutch golden point try last weekend, gaining 50 metres in the 82nd minute. The Warriors have named Jonathan Wright on the wing and named Thomas Leuluai to an extended bench.

This could be way closer then people are expecting.

Cronulla Sharks Vs Gold Coast Titans (Sunday, April 10)

The Shire will light up of Sunday afternoon. The Sharks are quickly improving and clearly getting stronger week-by-week. The Titans are travelling down with another new team line-up, as they continue to struggle to name the same team for multiple weeks.

Shark Park is always a daunting task for visitors, and it doesn’t help that the Sharks are in pretty good form this season. Big Paul Gallen returned last week to help his side defeat the Wests tigers. The only change the Sharks have made is the addition of Gerard Beale to the bench.

The Titans have started the season with a mighty bang. They are currently sitting 9th on the ladder due to their points differential, though they are in a 6 way tie for 4th in points. Lachlan Burr is out and William Zillman, Cameron Cullen and David Shillington will all line up, John Olive has dropped to an extended bench. Former Shark Greg Bird has had a great start to the 2016 season, but defeating his former teammates looks very unlikely.

Bet On: Cronulla Sharks -10.5 – $1.92 CrownBet

Melbourne Storm Vs Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs (Monday, April 11)

Monday Night Football will be a ripper this week. The Storm are sitting 2nd on the ladder with 4 wins and have started the season with a perfect record at home. The Bulldogs are 7th on the, ladder but they travel well and have locked up wins in their past two trips to Melbourne.

The Storm haven’t beaten the Bulldogs since 2013. History is certainly against them.
This week Storm will relish the return of winger Marika Koroibete from suspension. This will cause a reshuffle and will see a return to a more cohesive Storm. Cameron Munster continues to grow in his new role. Last week he moved the ball 151 metres.

The Bulldogs are so up and down this season is hard to imagine where they’ll end up. Their forward pack is potentially one of the best in the league. They certainly have the ability to dominate. Chase Stanley went down with a Hamstring last week, so he will be replaced by Kerrod Holland and Lloyd Perrett has been named on and extended bench.

Storm at home is always a challenge, but the Bulldogs power will test any side. This one will be close, but based on game style, the Storm’s attacking brand of football will see them win.

Bet On: Melbourne Storm 1-12 – $3.00 CrownBet
