SYDNEY ROOSTERS VS CRONULLA SHARKS

SATURDAY APRIL 10, 7.35 PM, SYDNEY CRICKET GROUND

Form Sydney clubs the Chooks and Cronulla meet in a primetime slot of Saturday evening, in what is sure to be an interesting clash, at the Sydney Cricket Ground, as both have shown plenty of potential for successful 2021 campaigns.  The Roosters bounced back to form in round 4, defeating the Warriors, as the Tedesco and Morris twins show continued, following a terrible effort against the Bunnies in round 3.  Cronulla are in similar shoes, after getting flogged by Parramatta in round 3, only to put the Cowboys to the sword for the entire 80 minutes last weekend and come away, 48-10 victors.  With conditions cooling down, but a stiff breeze persisting the atmosphere should be ideal, for what should be a quality game of rugby league, in front of a large crowd, at a very popular venue.

The Roosters are dealing with plenty of injuries, but none coming out of the last game, which enables coach Robinson to name the same 17 men that did the job against the Warriors to play again this week.  That is provided Tupouniua can overcome concussion protocols and take his place in the side, with Suluka-Fifita the likely replacement if he cannot.  Ramien returns to the Cronulla starting side after serving his suspension, as is likely to have Dugan and Mulitalo with him, despite their troubles in the Cowboys game.  Tracey drops to the bench, while Trindall misses out on selection, though Cronulla look to have a strong group of forwards.

The last time Cronulla had success at the SCG was way back in 1987, and it might feel like that long since they’ve had much to crow about against the Roosters, as the Tricolours have won 5 on the trot against the Sharks.  It was 6 tries to 3 for the Roosters in the late 2020 game, here at the SCG, as the now injured Keary got a pair of tries, as did the retired Mitch Aubusson.  The Roosters are $1.36 favourites to win this game, but an 8.5-point handicap is not convincing from bookmakers, who have Cronulla well out of the market at $3.20.  Sydney are $8 chances of hoisting the trophy again in 2021, while Cronulla are $26, showing the Sharks need to win games like this in order to get more market attention.

PREDICITON: Roosters just too good, by 10.

BETTING TIP: $2.60 for the Roosters to win by 1-12 seems decent.
