THE LONG HARD LOOK WITH MIKE WILSON
Newcastle Knights v New Zealand Warriors
Ausgrid Stadium, 2:00pm
The Warriors are the value of the round for mine. Throughout the weekend they have drifted from $2.05 to $2.15 and I can’t go past the $2.00 line (+2.0) on offer with the Warriors. I personally attended the Warriors V Titans match last week and was impressed with what I saw. I don’t think a lot of people are giving them the credit they deserve. James Maloney has been steering his backs around the football field beautifully from five-eighth and I think he is capable of more against a Knight’s side that is without Kurt Gidley. Diminutive NYC halfback Tyrone Roberts comes into the side for Gidley and look for the huge Warriors forwards to be running straight at him. Manu Vatuvei is playing his second game back from injury and definitely needed the run last week to get his positional game right again.
Mike’s Best Bet: $66 on Warriors +2.0 @ $2.00 (Readbet)
