NRL: Bulldogs showing plenty of bite

Canterbury Bulldogs will be out to cement their place in the top eight of the NRL when they take on New Zealand Warriors on Saturday.

The Bulldogs are flying this season after winning eight games out of 15 to move to fourth spot on the ladder.

If Cameron Ciraldo's side carry on in the same fashion, they are nailed on to play finals, and can be backed at 1.60 to make the top eight.

Two other teams hoping to make the top eight are North Queensland Cowboys and Manly Sea Eagles, who go head-to-head in Townsville.

It sees seventh play ninth, and there is just one point separating the two sides.

The Cowboys are 1.45 to make the eight, while Manly can be backed at 1.70.

Bulldogs flying high

. What: Canterbury Bulldogs v New Zealand Warriors
. Where: Accor Stadium, Sydney
. When: 15:00 (AEST), Saturday 6th July 2024
. How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel
. Odds: Canterbury Bulldogs 1.50, New Zealand Warriors 2.60

The Bulldogs are finally starting to click following some big signings over the last few seasons and they could be a dark horse for the remainder of the season.

They put in another fine performance when beating the Sharks by one point, and need to back it up with another two points on home soil.

Accor Stadium is proving to be a fortress with the Bulldogs winning their last six games at the venue.

The Bulldogs can be backed at 6.50 to keep the fine run going by beating the Warriors by 6-10 points.

The Warriors have a great record against the Bulldogs, winning the last six games, including a 12-point win in this fixture last season.

Canterbury are a different animal this season, but the Warriors are still priced at 3.75 to win by 1-12 points on this occasion as well.

Cowboys on a high

. What: North Queensland Cowboys v Manly Sea Eagles
. Where: Queensland Country Bank Stadium, Townsville
. When: 19:35 (AEST), Saturday 6th July 2024
. How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel
. Odds: North Queensland Cowboys 1.75, Manly Sea Eagles 2.10

The Cowboys showed just what they are capable of when beating Penrith on their own deck last week, despite missing a host of Origin stars.

Val Holmes, Jeremiah Nanai and Tom Dearden will all return for the clash against the Sea Eagles as they look to climb further into the eight.

They will have to improve on a poor record at Queensland Country Bank Stadium if they are to do so, having won just three of the last eight games there.

Kyle Feldt is in good form though, scoring five tries in his last five games, and is 7.50 to score the first try of the game.

Manly enjoy playing in Townsville and have not been beaten at Queensland Country Bank Stadium, since 2016.

They will also be handed a massive boost with the return of gun fullback Tom Trbojevic, who has recovered from injury.

The Sea Eagles can be backed at 7.00 to win by 6-10 points.
