NRL 2023 Round 3 preview tips
Roosters (9) vs. Rabbitohs (6)
Friday, 8 p.m., Allianz Stadium
The best time of the year outside of Origin and Finals and, as always, plenty of intrigue. The Roosters welcome back Jared Waerea-Hargreaves And Victor RadleyCoach Trento Robinson When asked if the pair would match at kick-off, he simply said: “You’ll just have to wait and see”. Radley is such a key inclusion for a Roosters attack that’s still warming up when it comes to who’s on the ball and when. On the other side of the ledger, Latrell Mitchell has had a tough week, often the catalyst for his best 80 minutes. Their bench forms as a distinguishing feature in the face of tricolor stocks were shortened by injuries. The Roosters have won just one of their last six games in this rivalry and that will remain the case next Friday. Rabbitohs from 4.
Titans (8) vs Storm (12)
Saturday, 3 p.m., Cbus Super Stadium
It’s difficult to draw a line of form through these teams at the moment. Both post losses and will miss key personnel. Nelson Asofa Solomona however, is canceled for up to two months Craig Bellamys Side have a huge in with the return of Justin Olamjust three weeks back after suffering an alleged six-week arm injury.
The Loss of Titan’s Hooker Sam Verrills (collarbone) is significant. Bellamy gave his troops an almighty cake after a listless display against the Bulldogs. Expect an answer. storm at 8
Cowboys (13) vs Warriors (7)
Saturday 5.30pm, Queensland Country Bank Stadium
I’m still trying to figure out if the Roosters were that bad in their unconvincing win last week or if the Warriors should get more credit. There have been some promising omens under the new coach Andrew Websteralthough we will know more about his team after this one.
The Warriors made more line breaks than any other team in the first two rounds, but their inability to finish them was costly. Both teams will be without their first-choice full-backs Taine Tuaupiki to make his NRL debut for the visitors. North Queensland is just recovering. cowboys from 4
Broncos (4) vs. Dragons (3)
Saturday, 7:35 p.m., Suncorp Stadium
A top-of-the-table duel? Funny game, rugby league. But the two teams that finished just short of the top 8 last year are looking to continue their positive starts to the season. Kevin Walters“Broncos looked rejuvenated as they took on the big scalps of the Panthers and Cowboys, the top four teams of last year.
You just have to make one change with jess arthars substitute Corey Oates (broken jaw) on the wing. Anton Griffin named the same 17 for the Dragons that overwhelmed the Titans in their first game of the year Junior Amone Part of the extended squad as he watches his first game since his stand-down ban through no fault of his was lifted. The Dragons have won five of their last six against the Broncos, with Ben Hunt He has never lost to his old team since joining the Red V in 2018. Broncos at 10.
Bulldogs (14) vs Tigers (17)
Sunday 4.05pm, Belmore Sports Ground
As if the Tigers needed more drama, they must now ride into a hostile Belmore to take on the Bulldogs in a throwback Sunday afternoon. Tim Sheens had to make countless changes to the Tigers after their horrible loss to the Knights Isaiah Papali’i (Suspension), Dain Laurie (Knee), Tommy Tallau (broken nose) and Jake Simkin (concussion) all paused. Charlie Staines will play defender Starford To’a, Junior Tupou, Brandon Wakeham And fonua pole named in the 17th
English international John Bateman is part of the extended 22-man squad and could play his first game for the club. Cameron Ciraldo has named the same Bulldogs roster that tore the Storm apart last week and confronted the club that aggressively courted him last year. bulldogs up to 8
Hunters (15) v Sharks (10)
Sunday, 6.15 p.m., GIO Stadium
Canberra have won their last eight meetings with Cronulla and are undoubtedly thriving after a surprising 2-0 start to the year. The Raiders’ yardage play has proved lacking both on and off the ball so far this season. They rank in the bottom four for yards scored and bottom two for yards conceded. The Sharks are still without Nico Hynes But Braydon Trindall only confirms what good referees already knew – he’s the best substitute half in the game. Matt Moylan was also in touch, although his defense was exploited by the Rabbitohs in round one and aimed for the Raiders’ right edge. Canberra are too good a team to be without a win after three weeks. Hunter at 6.
