We look to round out Week 6 of the NRL with two intriguing matches. The high-flying Dragons will host the Warriors at Jubilee Stadium, while it’s a bottom of the table clash between the Cowboys and the struggling Bulldogs.
Jubilee Stadium, Sunday 2pm AEST
The Dragons roll into this Sunday afternoon clash on a high, as they continue their brilliant start to the season. Anthony Griffin’s side have now won 4 straight games and are eyeing off a spot in the top 4 with a win today. They were super impressive last week against the Eels with their hard-hitting defence at the forefront of their good performance. The players are all looking like they want to put in for each other and the team morale looks as high as we have seen from this side in recent years.
Recent recruit Josh McGuire comes straight into the 17 as an extra boost for the home side and makes their impressive forward pack even stronger. The Warriors have once again been inconsistent with their performances, having looked as good as any side at their best, but can just as quickly look one of the weaker teams in the comp. They will be keen to bounce back from a last-minute loss to Manly last week but will have their work cut out for them facing an in-form Dragons side.
Just thought the Dragons would be too strong here today as they look to have turned the corner in their season. The players all look to be playing for each other and their defence has turned into one of the toughest in the competition. The win last week against the Eels was as good as they’ve had all season and now return to Kogorah to take on a Warriors team who is struggling for confidence. With the addition of Josh McGuire, their forward pack will only improve while Adam Clune has taken over from Ben Hunt seamlessly, with their back line asking plenty of questions in recent weeks.
The Warriors were on the end of a heartbreaking loss last week to one of the strugglers of the competition in the Sea Eagles. They’ll obviously be keen to bounce back from that but I think it is a tough ask for a team who has been lacking strong all round performances across the park.
Probably not the most exciting game to finish off round 6 with but there’ll be no shortage of desperation from two sides who have just the one win between them this season. The Cowboys finally got some points on the board last week with a back and forth, high scoring win against the Wests Tigers last week. Skipper Jason Taumololo has been named to return, which will be a massive boost for the home team while the Bulldogs will be without their own captain Josh Jackson after tearing his calf at training.
Canterbury have conceded 174 points in their opening 5 games of the season and their defence will once again be tested today as they come up against a Cowboys side who can score points at a rate of knots. This looks the Cowboys match to lose as they try to make it two straight wins and keep the Bulldogs winless at the bottom of the ladder.
It is just too hard to tip the Bulldogs at this stage in the season with their lack of defence being extremely worrying. They have conceded 24+ points in every game this year and will now have to travel to Townsville to face a side who put 34 points on the Tigers at home last week. They will also have to do it without inspirational skipper Josh Jackson and it just looks too tough of on ask. The Cowboys finally found some momentum in their season and will now be looking to consolidate that with another win here today. Assuming Taumalolo takes his spot in the team, they will only be improved from last week's effort.
