THE luckless Cowboys return home to challenge the Parramatta Eels in Saturday night football. The Cowboys currently sit in 13th position with just two wins for the season. The Eels are in eighth and have won four so far.
Both teams possess plenty of try-scoring talent and this preview will focus on those players from each team that are a chance of scoring a try at any time during the match.
Like an exotic bet in the NRL? Well, we’ve got you covered right here.
Brent Tate – The tough Cowboys centre is leading the try-scoring tally at the Cowboys so far this season, with four tries to his credit. He scored two of those tries last week against Manly. In that sort of form he is worth a bet at $2.25 with Sportingbet.com.au to score a try at any time.
Michael Morgan – Morgan has filled the shoes at fullback this season after an injury to first-choice fullback Lachlan Coote. Morgan has scored three tries for the Cowboys this year and last scored a four-pointer in Round 5. Morgan is $2.25 with Centrebet.com to score a try at any time.
Jonathan Thurston – Mercurial five-eight Thurston will be looking to return to his sparkling best on Saturday night. He has also scored three this year and last scored a try in Round 4. He will be attacking the Eels line and is always a chance of getting a try when near his best. He is $4.50 with IASbet.com ($2.75 with Sportingbet).
Semi Radradra – Powerhouse winger Radradra is the leading tryscorer in the NRL this year with 10 tries listed against his name. He has caught the eye with his barnstorming runs. He’s a hard man to tackle and he is a great chance of scoring in this match. He is $1.83 with Sportsbet.com.au ($1.50 with Centrebet).
Jarryd Hayne – The Hayne plane has scored half the tries of Radradra this year and has been in magnificent form with his fancy foot-work. He scored a double last week and he can put some points on the board here. Hayne is $2.20 with IASbet.com to score at any time ($1.75 with Sportingbet).
Ken Sio – The tall winger has notched up four tries so far with his last one coming last week. Some handy kicking from half-back Chris Sandow may see him cross in the corner. He is currently $2.30 with Sportsbet.com.au ($2.00 with Centrebet).
