NRL: Broncos and Eels hit the road

There’s a busy Saturday of NRL action to look forward to this weekend, with both the Brisbane Broncos and the Parramatta Eels hitting the road.

Last season’s grand final runners-up Brisbane make the trip to Auckland to face the New Zealand Warriors at Go Media Stadium for an intriguing contest.

Saturday also sees Parramatta make the trip to McDonald Jones Stadium to take on the Newcastle Knights.

Warriors and Broncos hope to stop the rot

. What: New Zealand Warriors v Brisbane Broncos
. Where: Go Media Stadium, Auckland
. When: 15:00 (AEST), Saturday 29th June 2024
. How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel
. Odds: New Zealand Warriors 1.87, Brisbane Broncos 1.95

Both the Warriors and the Broncos are on losing streaks as they prepare to meet in Auckland this weekend.

The Warriors are running the risk of dropping out of touching distance on the top eight, as a two-game losing streak has left them in 13th place on the ladder.

A 66-6 defeat at the hands of the Gold Coast Titans will undoubtedly have rocked confidence in the Warriors’ camp but Saturday offers an opportunity to get back in the saddle.

The Broncos meanwhile are on a three-game losing streak but still find themselves just two points off the top four.

Next they face a Warriors side that will be without star playmaker Shaun Johnson, who is sidelined with an Achilles injury.

Brisbane, who have won three of their last four encounters with the Warriors, are 1.95 to earn the victory in Auckland this weekend, while the hosts are 1.87 to claim the spoils.

A tight encounter is anticipated on the North Island, with the Warriors at 2.02 with -1.5 in the Line market.

Knights looking to put Eels to the sword

. What: Newcastle Knights v Parramatta Eels
. Where: McDonald Jones Stadium, Newcastle
. When: 17:30 (AEST), Saturday 29th June 2024
. How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel
. Odds: Newcastle Knights 1.87, Parramatta Eels 1.95

The Knights have lost their last six games against the Eels but will be hoping to enjoy a change in fortunes when they meet on Saturday.

Newcastle have not won on their own patch since Round 9 against the Warriors but they might fancy their chances against a Parramatta side that have lost all of their last six games on the road.

Both these sides will feel refreshed after a recent bye week and Saturday offers a chance for both these teams to also snap losing streaks.

The Knights go into this game on the back of three consecutive losses, although they did look better in their 26-18 defeat to reigning champions Penrith Panthers in Round 15.

With one win in their last eight games, it’s been a sorry run for the Eels, who are available at 1.95 to continue their impressive record in this fixture and win at McDonald Jones Stadium this weekend.

The Knights are 1.87 for the victory, while Newcastle are 1.95 with -1.5 in the Line market for this one.
