THE South Sydney Rabbitohs and Melbourne Storm both sit inside the top eight on the NRL ladder and are both on 10 points, so this should be a keenly-contested match.
Both sides put more than 20 points on the board in their respective matches against fellow top eight sides Gold Coast Titans and Manly Sea Eagles last week, so there should be some points in this one.
Here’s a look at the try-scorer markets and the three best chances in each side to score a try.
Dylan Walker: Walker is the joint-leading try-scorer at the Rabbitohs. He has scored five tries this season. Remarkably, four of those tries came in the match against the Titans last week. He was also the first try-scorer in that match. His only other try came in Round 4 against Canberra. Walker is $2.50 with IASbet.com (better than $2.00 with Sportingbet) to score at any time. If you like him for first try-scorer in the match, he is $13.00 with Sportsbet.com.au (better than $9.00 with Sportingbet).
Greg Inglis: Inglis sits with Walker at the top of the Souths’ try-scoring tree, with a handful of tries to his name. His tries are slightly more evenly spread then Walkers’. Inglis has scored in Rounds 1, 5 and 8. He hasn’t been the first try-scorer of the match on any of those occasions. Inglis is $1.91 with IASbet.com (better than $1.75 with Sportingbet) to score during the match. He is $9.50 with IASbet to cross the try-line first.
Alex Johnston: Johnston is a recent addition to the first grade side and he has certainly got off on the right foot, notching up three tries. He scored two last week against the Titans and one against Brisbane in Round 8. He’s fast and hard to contain, so he looks a big chance of scoring. This speedster is $2.00 with Sportingbet to score at any time (better than $1.91 with Sportsbet) and $9.50 with IASbet to be first try-scorer.
Sisa Waqa: The strong winger has scored seven tries this season and hasn’t scored since Round 7. He will be keen to add some more tries to his account. He is $2.10 with Sportsbet.com.au (better than $2.00 with Sportingbet) to increase his try tally. He is $11.00 with all bookmakers to score the first try of the game.
Will Chambers: Talented centre Chambers has racked up five tries. He hasn’t scored one since Round 6, so it’s been been awhile but he knows how to find his way to the line. Chambers is $2.63 with IASbet.com (better than $2.25 with Sportingbet) to score during the game. He is $15.00 in Sportsbet’s first try-scorer market (better than $13.00 with Sportingbet).
Billy Slater: Slater may have only scored three tries this season, but he looks like he is running into some form. He opened the scoring for the Storm last week and scored two tries for the match. He is a scintillating full-back and nearly unstoppable when in top form. Slater is $2.10 with IASbet to score a try and $11.00 with all bookmakers to score first.
