Sydney Roosters v South Sydney Rabbitohs

Friday July 7, 7:50pm AEST – Allianz Stadium

The fiercest rivalry in Rugby League, the Rabbitohs go in surprising road favourites against rivals the Sydney Roosters due to the Roosters’ strong Origin contingent. The Roosters have won the last two against the Rabbitohs and have covered five of their last eight as an underdog at Allianz. The Roosters have also been very good off a poor defensive effort, covering 14 of their last 21 after conceding 25 or more points.

Melbourne Storm v Parramatta Eels

Saturday July 8, 7:30pm AEST – AAMI Park

Melbourne are missing 10 top-line players thanks to Origin and injury but remain a big chance of upsetting the Eels. The Storm have been excellent throughout this Origin period and it has left them clear at the top of the table. The Storm have won five of their six at AAMI this year and have won six of their last eight against the Eels. Parramatta are poor travellers, having covered just seven of 21 interstate matches since 2014.
