Tigers v Broncos

Wests Tigers welcome skipper Robbie Farah back for their important round 6 game against Brisbane . TattsBet preseason premiership favourites, the disappointing Tigers are one from five after giving up a twelve point lead to be run down by South Sydney in golden point last weekend.

The form team in the competition behind Melbourne, Brisbane have asserted their dominance in the opening rounds recording four wins and a narrow loss to North Queensland to sit in equal second position on the ladder.

History – The Broncos love playing the Tigers and have won five of their past six games against the Tim Sheen’s coached side. The Broncos dominated Wests last season recording a convincing 31-18 victory.

Dangermen – Despite signing to St George in 2013, Brisbane winger Gerald Beale has shown his worth time and time again this season, crossing the line on four occasions and menacing defence lines with his fearless runs and spirited kick chases. Wests winger Beau Ryan has been in great form for the Tigers and should relish the opportunity of playing against the Broncos.

Prediction – The Broncos are hard to go past with a strong mobile pack and fast outside backs expect them to wreak havoc on the Tigers vulnerable defensive edges targeting the likes of Benji Marshall and Tom Humble. Broncos 1-12

Souths v Bulldogs

Can the Bunnies get the chocolates on Good Friday? The Bulldogs are standing in their way in what is set to be a mouth-watering good Friday clash. The Rabbitohs stole a miraculous golden point win last week against the toothless Tigers, could this be the potion they need to spark their 2012 season?

The Rabbits are without hard man Sam Burgess after the powerhouse Englishmen was ruled out for 6-8 weeks after suffering ligament damage to his left knee while the Bulldogs have named an unchanged lineu-up from the team that easily despatched the Titans last week.

History – The Bulldogs boast an impressive record against the Rabbitohs winning eight of their past ten clashes. In the corresponding match last season the Bulldogs fought off a fast finishing Rabbitohs to record a 36-24 win.

Dangermen – It’s a showdown of the fullbacks here. Greg Inglis v Ben Barba. Both are in electric form and are capable of changing the momentum of a game with. Look for these exciting players to stamp their flair on this game.

Prediction – It’s going to go down to the wire. Both teams are in quite good form and coming away from hard fought wins. Expect the Rabbitohs to come out strong, however the Bulldogs should be too good in the end. Bulldogs 1-12
