Here's the line up of first showings of NRL Round 8 matches this weekend on Premier Sports TV
First of the games should be a good one. Looking forward to the match up between an improving Broncos at home against one of the hot teams of the season so far - Souths.
Broncos at home will test the high flying Bunnies who'll have to put in another top rate performance up in Queensland.
The other Friday game sees the Tigers Young Guns travel to Canterbury to take on a Bulldogs team who need to add some more wins to their 2013 record so far.
Raiders will travel to Melbourne more in hope than expectation. All the same they have some great attacking plays and Storm need to avoid complacency.
Eels for me have been a team hard to predict this season. On their day they could upset the talented Cowboys outfit, but will it be their day? Mmmm
Warriors at home used to be a likely win for them. This season has seen them struggle in the last quarter of the game and lose games that they might have won.
If they don't perform well for the full 80 minutes this Titans team with talented players and attacking ideas served well by a sparkling Albert Kelly could upset them. Surely the Warriors will give their home crowd what they want though?
The other two Sunday games seem to be destined to be home wins for the Chooks and Knights respectively. Both Panthers and Sharks have got some strong skillful and experienced players who won't make it easy for the home sides though.
The final R8 game on Monday is an intriguing one. On form you'd think Manly would take the spoils. This could be a close call though as Dragons have a good record at home against the Sea Eagles.
All in all a great bunch of games for us to watch, or record and watch later.
Enjoy your NRL, enjoy whatever Rugby League you see this weekend.
Hope you get chance to see some of it live too!
