NRL: Roosters look poised to tame Tigers

Sydney Roosters will be looking to keep the pressure on at the top of the NRL ladder when they take on Wests Tigers on Sunday evening.

The Roosters sit fourth on the ladder heading into the Tigers clash and two points is a must to stay in touch with Melbourne Storm at the top of the pile.

It may not be straightforward against a Tigers side that should still be on a high after smashing the Canberra Raiders last weekend.

Also on Sunday, the Dolphins will be out to bounce back from a defeat against the Storm and consolidate their place in the top eight.

Wayne Bennett’s men take on a Dragons side who sit just two points below them and also have finals aspirations, so there is all to play for on Sunday and both games should be intense.

Dolphins eager to bounce back

. What: St George/Illawarra Dragons v Dolphins
. Where: Netstrata Jubilee Stadium, Sydney
. When: 14:00 (AEST), Sunday 30th June 2024
. How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel
. Odds: St George/Illawarra Dragons 1.82, Dolphins 2.00

The Dolphins top-four hopes suffered a setback when they lost on home soil to the Storm, and they will be determined to bounce back.

They will have to do it without gun fullback Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow, who suffered a shoulder injury while on State of Origin duty, while Jack Bostock misses out with concussion.

A trip to Netstrata Jubilee Stadium will hold no fear for the Dolphins, who have won five out of seven games on the road this season.

They can be backed at 3.60 to win by 1-12 points on Sunday.

The Dragons should be refreshed after the bye, but will be missing Zac Lomax, who is nursing a shoulder injury following Origin.

However, Ben Hunt has been named to figure and the playmaker can be backed at 3.75 to score at anytime.

The Dragons lost 38-0 back in March and will be out for revenge against the Dolphins.

Roosters must avoid complacency

. What: Sydney Roosters v Wests Tigers
. Where: Allianz Stadium, Sydney
. When: 18:15 (AEST), Sunday 30th June 2024
. How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel
. Odds: Sydney Roosters 1.23, Wests Tigers 4.20

The Roosters are the hot fancies to roll over the Tigers, but they cannot allow complacency to creep in.

A win will cement the Roosters in the top four, but the Tigers will be on a high after beating the Canberra Raiders in style.

The Roosters, who will welcome back their State of Origin stars, have beaten the Tigers in each of the last seven meetings.

Trent Robinson’s men can be backed at 1.91 to win by 13+ points.

James Tedesco will be playing his 150th game for the club and is priced at 11.00 to celebrate by grabbing the first try of the game.

The Tigers can be backed at 9.50 to pull off an upset and win the clash at Allianz Stadium by 1-5 points.
