Penrith Panthers v Canterbury Bulldogs

Penrith will be smarting from a tough round-one loss at Canberra but represent good value against the Doggies on Thursday night. The $2.55 on offer about the mountain men with both Sportsbet and Unibet looks immense value considering they are playing at home. Both teams are without their hookers and key playmakers Segeyaro (Penrith) and Lichaa (Bulldogs). The $1.83 at Bet365 for Curtis Rona to score a try at any stage during the game looks a strong bet given he is a prolific tryscorer on the end of a very good backline.

Brisbane Broncos v New Zealand Warriors

It was a disappointing opening round showing from the New Zealand Warriors, who conceded five first-half tries before eventually going down 34-26 to Wests Tigers at Campbelltown. They are away again on Friday night against the competition favourites in the Brisbane Broncos and will start as unwanted $3.70 outsiders with Unibet . Broncos' winger Corey Oates starred in the Broncos' round-one win over Parramatta and is paying $9.50 with Sportsbet to cross for the first try. He bagged a ‘meat pie’ against Parramatta and knows his way to the try line.
