Melbourne Storm v Parramatta Eels
AAMI Park, 2:00pm
The 2009 grand finalists go head to head down in Melbourne in Sunday afternoon footy. The Storm were scintillating last week making sure that Parramatta have their work cut out for them. Jarryd Hayne will be testing out Billy Slater under his towering spiral bombs. Slater might prove too hard to shut down after signing a four year extension on his contract this week.
St George Illawarra Dragons v Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs
Sydney Cricket Ground, 3:00pm
Heritage round takes the 1985 grand finalists back to the vintage setting of the Sydney Cricket Ground. Nothing beats Sunday footy at this venue. The two sides sit 3rd and 4th on the ladder separated by just 9 differential points. The two teams play a different style of footy so don’t be surprised if a 13+ result either way is pulled off.
