2020 nrl season preview part 1

Gold Coast added Tyrone Peachey and a bunch of depth to their young roster, which should make life a little easier for Garth Brennan as he hopes to turn things around in his second year as coach. Melbourne have won five-straight over the Broncos dating back to 2017, outscoring Brisbane 66-36 across their two meetings last season.

No side in the NRL has had a better record against the Storm in recent seasons than the Bulldogs and they have won six of the past seven games played between the two sides. Brisbane are another side that head into 2017 with a couple of key losses. There is no doubt that they now have one of the most talented rosters in the NRL and they really should prove too strong for the Tigers. Wests has covered in all four of their games as the away underdog at the line against the Dragons, while their overall 6-3 mark as the away underdog last year at the line also makes the Tigers worth a look. Jonathan Thurston is no more, while the additions of Josh McGuire from the rival Broncos should compliment Jason Taumalolo nicely. We’re here to help with whatever you need. One issue for the Panthers last season was winning away from home and they won just three of their five games as away favourites last season for a narrow loss. The Raiders also enjoyed a busy summer, although they have lost a handful of key playmakers, including Shannon Boyd to this weekend’s opponent. It was a disappointing finish for a side that boasts one of the most explosive attacks in the competition, and now without Shaun Johnson and Simon Mannering, Roger Tuivasa-Sheck will have to carry the load. The business end of the National Rugby League (NRL) Finals series is set to kick-off this week after a COVID interrupted season. The addition of Aiden Sezar in the halves is a big boost and if they can overcome the poor coaching of Ricky Stuart they will be right in the hunt for a position in the top eight, which means they should be winning games like this one. Backing the Under in games involving either of these teams was a profitable betting play last season and it really would not surprise if this was a fairly dour contest. Things looked great up until the midway point last year, right before the Warriors somehow fell from fourth all the way down to eighth by seasons end. These two sides played out a classic in Round 24 last year, a game that saw the Tigers walk away with a nail-biting 22-20 win. They were favoured at home only once last year, while the Raiders finished 1-8 as the away underdog. After resting 12 players from their final regular-season match, the Storm will be primed to bounce back in the opening week of the finals. Despite making it to the second round of the Finals, head coach Paul McGregor will be hoping the pair can add some stability to his team that faded from the top of the ladder midseason to finish seventh. With their best player missing and Newcastle looking to turn their home ground into even more of a fortress, this doesn’t bode well for the visitors. Jarrod Mullen’s ASADA ban takes experience out of a side that desperately needs it and they have not been blessed by good fortune during the off-season – recruit Rory Kostjasyn will miss the start of the season due to a throat injury. Thursday 2 March, 8:05pm, Southern Cross Group Stadium.

A year on from Cooper Cronk’s departure, Melbourne again look to pick up the pieces following Billy Slater’s retirement. These two sides met twice last season splitting the series one win apiece. The market looks to have got this clash just about right, but there is value in the Over/Under total points betting market. Souths are being favoured heavily in the market against a half-strength Cronulla outfit. Wests were a losing betting proposition across the board last season and they have covered the line in only one of their past eight games against the Roosters.

The St George Illawarra Dragons defied all expectations in 2015 to qualify for the NRL finals and it took a golden-point thriller to see them eliminated from the competition. Tags: NRL, Rugby League.

The North Queensland Cowboys finally broke through for that elusive premiership in 2015 and that means history is again them in 2016 – the Brisbane Broncos in 1993 were the last team to defend a premiership outside of the mess that was Super League. Their record away from home as well as away underdogs was very similar and based on that there are far worse bets this weekend. Part of the original 6'some Cup he has the most NRLCEO Premierships of any user. To kick things off, there's a number of off-field dramas that warrant discussion, and in anticipation for season 2020, we review the 2019 NRLCEO Dream Team. Last but not least, the Knights hold a perfect 2-0 record as the home favourite at the line over New Zealand – a side that won only four games on the road last year.

Fast forward to Sunday, and it’s suddenly a tough call between a side that’s caught up in the headlines and a team desperate to forget last seasons wooden spoon finish. The Seibold factor as well as the return of Greg Inglis are the main reasons that there is some optimism about the Rabbitohs this season and they will start this clash as clear favourites. They continue to recruit shrewdly and based on his form at the Auckland Nines James Tamou could be the man to take the Panthers forward pack to another level. All eyes will be on these two heavyweights, but just like every other fixture, there’s plenty of storylines worth monitoring as the Roosters kick off their Premiership defence against one of the league’s top contenders. It goes without saying that much of this game is a question mark. Injuries to AJ Brimson only make life tougher for the Titans, so while a fairytale upset is fun to think about, it just doesn’t seem likely for a team that won only four games a season ago.

This is a genuine Friday Night Blockbuster between two of the best sides in the NRL. We provide no warranty about accuracy or completeness. The big win was not finishing with the wooden spoon, but more importantly, the Dogs still finished strongly in the second half of the year defeating the Broncos, Dragons and this same Warriors side in August.
