Here's your weekly dose of NRL.

We're spoiled, as usual, having all the Rouind 10 games to watch or choose from.

Friday 17th:

Two very different games in prospect here.

 

The high flying Rabbitohs are at home to struggling Wests Tigers who not only have injury problems resulting in an unusual line up for them, but have in Benji Marshall the enigma. On form he's a match winner, however he's been anything but that in the last few games. Drastic action has been taken resulting in him starting on the bench. If ever there was a game where he was needed on top form this is it. Tigers will be hoping this kick up the rear for him will rebound on the Bunnies with a determined Benji  ready to cause an upset.

 

Broncos at home to Gold Coast Titans is a different kettle of fish! Broncos would in previous years have been strong favourites. However they've had mixed form in the 2013 season so far. Coupled with that is a rash of injuries and swap rounds. Ben Hunt will start for the injured Scott Prince  and Josh McGuire replaces the injured Ben Hannant at prop. Justin Hodges has pulled out of the game with a rib injury - this late on Thursday is a huge blow; Jordan Kahu will fill his boots, with Lachlan Maranta on the wing. Scott Anderson, Jarrod Wallace and Mitchell Dodds have been added to what is a five-man bench. So not the sort of Broncos team we've come to expect. Titans, you'll remember, lost at home to Broncos not long ago in Round 5.

The Titans seem to travel OK though and they dug deep last weekend to pull off a win at home against the Dragons. So maybe this is a closer call than most people think. We'll know soon!

Hmm ? Bunnies v Tiggers is likely to be a smashfest !! Stil seeing tigers getting beaten up by rabbits is a novelty :jester:

That's the live game here for me as well,though I'd rather watch the banana bender derby :rap:

As you can see they are leading with Souths v Tigers here as the live game.

Rabbitohs and Storm seem to get some sort of priority here if the situation arises.

I guess Storm are high profile here for all kinds of reasons and Rabbitohs have the Burgess Boys and current success.

Not the best two games of RL I've ever seen. Tigers were so lightweight that Souths just walked all over them seeming able to score at will.
I've just watched the first half of the Broncos/Titans game which was really poor. Titans were I'll disciplined to the point where they were continually giving the ball to Brisbane in scoring positions with tries a begging and penalty goals aplenty.Titans fans won't know whether to cry or laugh. The penalty county was 10-0 at one point,being almost evened up by half time 10-2. :-)
So tons of whistle then. Bird in the bin nine minutes from half time.Dave (Raw Meat) Taylor on report and Broncos with most of the ball.
Not good! Certainly not flowing rugby.It's a wonder somebody hasn't been sent off completely. Still there's anther 40 minutes of the second half yet to play - plenty of time.

Some pretty  (or ugly if you're on the losing side) one sided affairs in Round 10 so far.

Tigers and Warriors were given a thrashing as were the Bulldogs. The Titans and Eels were also well beaten if not by such large margins.

Closest call was in the Cowboys/Roosters game.

Just one game left and it promises to be the clash of the round.

There's history between Storm and Manly, with the Sea Eagles in particular being widely quoted as not liking Storm.

It's not long to kick off now at AAMI Park, Melbourne.

Hold on to your hats!

Let's hope it's a good game.

Enjoy your rugby league.
