The media have been building up this Mason vs SBW battle for a week. I would put money on this whole game being a massive anti-climax.
For once let's hope it's not. I want to see some big tackles. I hope the fans keep the peace in the grandstands though.
I tipped the Bulldogs. I was impressed with their defence last Sunday. The Roosters are playing well even if things haven't all gone their way. It should be a close encounter. Crowd tip - 22,000
Over in Melbourne the Storm are hosting Brisbane. This is usually one of their best drawing games of the year but they are coming off the back of two losses. Let's see if the faithful remain loyal. I think they will. Crowd tip - 12,000
One thing I notice about the crowd shots at Olympic Park is how much gear they wear. There may not be many Storm fans but they sure spend. I wonder what reception they'll give Folau and the Broncos.
On the field I think Melbourne will smarten up. Bellamy will want to impress his next employers.
They play well down there and Brisbane don't often return from Melbourne in good spirits.
Canterbury and Melbourne to win tonight, I hope. I need to keep on Cam's heels in the tipping comp. He's getting a bit cocky I'm sure.
