NRL Round 10 Saturday Tips

Another intriguing Super Saturday is on the agenda in Round 10. Can the Dragons continue their momentum against the embattled Bulldogs? The Rabbitohs and Knights clash looks like it’ll be a thriller at Bankwest Stadium. Then, how will the Sea Eagles respond after a 30 point loss against the Eels at Brookvale Oval on Saturday night?

NRL Round 10 Saturday Betting Tips

Dragons vs Bulldogs

(Sat, Jul 18 3:00pm)

Two old rivals meet again on Saturday afternoon. Starting with the Dragons, they return to Wollongong this week and come off a huge win over Manly. They smashed the Sea Eagles in the second half with a 34-4 result and St. George are now 11th on the ladder. Moving Ben Hunt to hooker proved to be a great move as he was one of the Dragons best on the day. So they’ll stick with the same formula in this clash. The only team change will see Jason Saab replace Jordan Pereira on the wing.

Meanwhile, the Bulldogs dreadful 2020 season has cost Dean Pay his head coaching job. So we’ll see if they can respond on the field for interim coach Steve Georgallis. He’ll look to improve the Bulldogs dead last attack, which is scoring just 10.44 points per game. So he’s replaced Brandon Wakeham with Lachlan Lewis at halfback. Nick Meaney moves to fullback and Watene-Zelezniak plays on the wing. Jeremy Marshall-King will also start at hooker after playing off the bench last week.

The Dragons will be very keen for revenge after losing 22-2 against the Bulldogs earlier this season. So after scoring 34 points last week, we think they’ll be able to score most of this 36.5 point total, especially in dry Saturday afternoon conditions.


Rabbitohs vs Knights

(Sat, Jul 18 5:30pm)

South Sydney come off 4 wins in their last 5 after a slow start to the season. Last week, they outlasted the Tigers in a tough battle 18-10 and will be expecting a similar affair against Newcastle. But they will be without the suspended Latrell Mitchell after a firing clash last week. Campbell Graham is also missing in the centres. So Alex Johnson will move back to fullback and Corey Allen / Jaxson Paulo come into the side on the wing.

The Knights will be looking to find their attacking best this week after scoring just the single try last week in the 10-4 loss against Parramatta. But defensively, they can take confidence in keeping the high flying Eels to just 10 points for the 80 minutes. In team news, Jacob Saifiti will take the place of his brother in the forward pack. Connor Watson and Mitchell Barnett have been named on the bench and could return to the side.

This figures to be one of the closest games of the round and that's reflected in the odds, which only just favour the Rabbitohs at this stage. So we can't disagree and will be getting on the either team bet, which has saluted in 2 of the last 3 meetings.


Sea Eagles vs Eels

(Sat, Jul 18 7:35pm)

Manly have hit a rough patch of form as injuries start to mount. They've lost their last 3 games and that includes an embarrassing 34-4 defeat against the Dragons last week. So losing the likes of Tom Trbojevic have really hurt the Sea Eagles chances of competing and that probably won't change on Saturday night against the red-hot Eels. In team selections, they'll be without Morgan Boyle and Taniela Paseka will get the start in his place.

The Eels outlasted the Knights last week in the 10-4 victory in Newcastle, proving they can win tough matches away from Bankwest. Parramatta weren't at their very best on the day but you have to remember, they're without Mitchell Moses at halfback. They also lost Junior Paulo to injury during the game. So the Eels will be looking to take full advantage of the Sea Eagles recent woes in this clash. Parramatta are unchanged at the moment but Paulo will need to prove his fitness at training.

While Manly suffered a close and unlucky loss against the Eels in early June, they're a different side without Tom Trbojevic. However, we do like the Under in night conditions at Brookvale Oval. Manly conceded a 14-12 loss at the venue a few weeks ago against the Knights and hopefully, their defence can return this week.
