The Sea Eagles have done well despite missing key players in recent weeks. After opening with a loss to the Storm, they beat the Roosters and Knights. But it's the dreaded five-day turnaround for the Sea Eagles here.Referees: A Klein/A DevcichTV times: Live, Channel 9Head to head: Sea Eagles 69, Rabbitohs 56Last time: Sea Eagles 26 bt Rabbitohs 25 at Brookvale Oval (rd 15, 2010)TAB Sportsbet: Rabbitohs $2.15, Sea Eagles $1.68Sportingbet: Rabbitohs $2.25, Sea Eagles $1.65Sportsbet: Rabbitohs $2.18, Sea Eagles $1.70FootyTAB: Sea Eagles (+2.5)3-Broncos v 14-PanthersFriday, 8.30pm, Suncorp StadiumGerard BealeDale CopleyJack ReedJustin HodgesJharal Yow YehDarren Lockyer (c)Peter WallaceSam ThaidayAndrew McCulloughBen HannantAlex GlennMatt GillettCorey ParkerLachlan CooteMichael GordonMichael JenningsBrad TigheDavid SimmonsTravis BurnsKevin KingstonTim GrantMasada IosefaPetero CivonicevaTrent WaterhouseNigel PlumLuke LewisInterchange: Brisbane: Ben Hunt, Ben Te'o, Josh McGuire, Shane Tronc.Penrith: (From) Matthew Bell, Adrian Purtell, Timana Tahu, Nafe Seluini, Sarafu Fatiaki.Greg Prichard writes: The Broncos began with a narrow home loss to the Cowboys, but have bounced back strongly for back-to-back road wins over the Raiders and Titans. The Panthers are in big trouble. They began by getting flogged at home against the Knights and after a road win over the Eels they got whipped at home by the Sharks.Referees: J Robinson/C JamesTV times: Channel 9, 9.40pmHead to head: Broncos 27, Panthers 14, drawn 1Last time: Panthers 22 bt Broncos 12 at Suncorp Stadium (rd 15, 2010)TAB Sportsbet: Broncos $1.36, Panthers $3.10Sportingbet: Broncos $1.37, Panthers $3.15Sportsbet: Broncos $1.40, Panthers $3FootyTAB: Panthers (+8.5)10-Raiders v 16-TitansSaturday, 5.30pm, Canberra StadiumJosh DuganBlake FergusonJarrod CrokerJoel ThompsonDaniel VidotJosh McCroneMatt OrfordDane TilseTravis WaddellDavid Shillington (c)Trevor ThurlingBronson Harrison (c)Shaun FensomWilliam ZillmanSteve MichaelsEsi TongaBodene ThompsonDavid MeadGreg BirdScott Prince (c)Luke BaileyRiley BrownMatthew WhiteAnthony LaffranchiMark MinichielloBen RidgeInterchange: Canberra: (From) Glen Buttriss, Josh Miller, Tom Learoyd-Lahrs, Brett White, Danny Galea.Gold Coast: (From) Michael Henderson, Ryan James, Sam Tagataese, Preston Campbell, Brad Meyers.Greg Prichard writes: The Raiders opened the season with a big home win over the Sharks, but have since lost to the Broncos at home and Tigers away. It wouldn't surprise to see the Raiders hit top gear, while the Titans are in trouble. After making the finals in each of the past two years, they have lost all three of their games so far and are looking old.Referees: S Lyons/M CecchinTV times: Live, Fox Sports 2Head to head: Raiders 4, Titans 4Last time: Raiders 28 bt Titans 24 at Canberra Stadium (rd 13, 2010)TAB Sportsbet: Raiders $1.38, Titans $3Sportingbet: Raiders $1.37, Titans $3.15Sportsbet: Raiders $1.38, Titans $3.10FootyTAB: Titans (+6.5)13-Eels v 4-CowboysSaturday, 7.30pm, Parramatta StadiumJarryd HayneLuke BurtJoel ReddyRyan MorganEtu UaiseleDaniel MortimerJeff RobsonTim MannahMatt KeatingShane ShackletonNathan Hindmarsh (c)Taniela LasaloBen SmithMatthew BowenAshley GrahamWill TupouWillie TongaKalifa Faifai LoaRay ThompsonJohnathan Thurston (c)Matt Scott (c)Aaron PayneJames TamouGavin CooperGlenn HallDallas JohnsonInterchange: Parramatta: Anthony Mitchell, Justin Horo, Mitchell Allgood, Carl Webb.North Qld: James Segeyaro, Leeson Ah Mau, Tariq Sims, Ashton Sims.Greg Prichard writes: The Eels need to get back on track in a hurry. They opened the season well, with a road win against the Warriors but have since lost to the Panthers and Rabbitohs. The Cowboys were awful in defence at home against the Knights and were well beaten but bounced back with a very disciplined performance to beat the Storm at home.Referees: J Maxwell/P HainesTV times: Live, Fox Sports 2Head to head: Eels 15, Cowboys 9, drawn 1Last time: Eels 36 bt Cowboys 24 at Parramatta Stadium (rd 18, 2010)TAB Sportsbet: Eels $1.68, Cowboys $2.15Sportingbet: Eels $1.70, Cowboys $2.20Sportsbet: Eels $1.66, Cowboys $2.25FootyTAB: North Queensland (+4.5)8-Sharks v 15-WarriorsSunday, noon, Owen Delany Park, Taupo, NZNathan GardnerMatthew WrightBen PomeroyColin BestJohn WilliamsAlbert KellyWade GrahamKade SnowdenJohn MorrisLuke DouglasJeremy SmithAnthony TupouPaul Gallen (c)Glen FisiiahiBill TupouShaun BerriganSimon Mannering (c)Krisnan InuFeleti MateoJames MaloneyJacob LillymanAaron HeremaiaRussell PackerLewis BrownUkuma Ta'aiMicheal LuckInterchange: Cronulla: (From) Josh Cordoba, Broderick Wright, Paul Aiton, Dean Collis,Johnny Mannah, Taulima Tautai.Warriors: (From) Kevin Locke, Sam Rapira,Ben Matulino, Elijah Taylor, Alehana Mara.Greg Prichard writes: The Sharks are a revelation. They began the season terribly, with a heavy loss away to the Raiders, but then hosted the Dragons and managed to knock the premiers over. Then they thrashed the Panthers on the road. After three rounds, the Warriors are without a win.Referees: G Badger/B SuttorTV times: Live, Fox Sports 2Head to head: Sharks 13, Warriors 13Last time: Warriors 37 bt Sharks 10 at Toyota Stadium (rd 22, 2010)TAB Sportsbet: Sharks $2.15, Warriors $1.68Sportingbet: Sharks $2.20, Warriors $1.70Sportsbet: Sharks $2.25, Warriors $1.66FootyTAB: Cronulla (+1.5)2-Knights v 5-DragonsSunday, 2pm, Ausgrid StadiumWes NaiqamaJames McManusJunior Sa'uAdam MacDougallAkuila UateKurt Gidley (c)Jarrod MullenAntonio KaufusiMatt HilderEvarn TuimavaveZeb TaiaChris HoustonJoel EdwardsDarius BoydBrett MorrisMark GasnierMatt CooperJason NightingaleJamie SowardBen Hornby (c)Dan HuntNathan FienDavid GowerBeau ScottBen CreaghMatt PriorInterchange: Newcastle: Marvin Karawana, Cory Paterson, Richie Fa'aoso, Dan Tolar.St George Illawarra: (From) Michael Greenfield, Jon Green, Trent Merrin, Kyle Stanley,Adam Cuthbertson, Mitch Rein.Greg Prichard writes: The Knights are at home after playing three games on the road, and at the opening of their redeveloped ground there is bound to be a big crowd for this clash. Both teams are 2-1. The Dragons will play their usual relentless style and seek to wear the opposition down.Referees: B Cummins/T De Las HerasTV times: Live, Fox Sports 2Head to head: Knights 8, Dragons 14Last time: Dragons 26 bt Knights 18 at Ausgrid Stadium (rd 25, 2010)TAB Sportsbet: Knights $2.50, Dragons $1.53Sportingbet: Knights $2.55, Dragons $1.52Sportsbet: Knights $2.48, Dragons $1.55FootyTAB: Knights (+3.5)11-Roostersv 9-TigersSunday, 3pm, Sydney Football StadiumAnthony MinichielloJustin CarneyMitchell AubussonShaun Kenny-DowallJoseph LeiluaTodd CarneyMitchell PearceJason RylesJake FriendMartin KennedyBraith Anasta (c)Frank-Paul NuuausalaNate MylesWade McKinnonMitch BrownBlake AyshfordTim MoltzenMatt UtaiBenji MarshallJacob MillerAndrew FifitaRobbie Farah (c)Keith GallowaySimon DwyerAlan SchirnackChris HeighingtonInterchange: Roosters: (From) Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, Mose Masoe, Mark Riddell,Tom Symonds, Daniel Conn.Wests Tigers: Geoff Daniela, Jason Schirnack, Aaron Woods, Todd Payten.Greg Prichard writes: The Roosters are under the pump. Another loss would leave last year's grand finalists with a 1-3 start and people would wonder whether they have a grand-final hangover. The Tigers easily beat the Raiders last week, but picked up several serious injuries along the way.Referees: T Archer/A ShortallTV times: Channel 9, 4pmHead to head: Roosters 11, Tigers 7Last time: Roosters 19 bt Tigers 15 at the SFS (qualifying final, 2010)TAB Sportsbet: Roosters $1.47, Tigers $2.65Sportingbet: Roosters $1.47, Tigers $2.70Sportsbet: Roosters $1.48, Tigers $2.65FootyTAB: Wests Tigers (+2.5)7-Storm v 1-BulldogsMonday, 7pm, AAMI ParkBilly SlaterJustin O'NeillDane NielsenBeau ChampionAnthony QuinnGareth WiddopCooper CronkKevin ProctorCameron Smith (c)Bryan NorrieAdam BlairTodd LowrieRyan HinchcliffeBen BarbaSteve TurnerTim LafaiJamal IdrisBryson GoodwinKris KeatingTrent HodkinsonAiden TolmanMichael EnnisMickey PaeaFrank PritchardAndrew Ryan (c)David StaggInterchange: Melbourne: Adam Woolnough, Jaiman Lowe, Troy Thompson, Jesse Bromwich.Canterbury: (From) Sam Kasiano, Jake Foster, Corey Payne, Dene Halatau, Chris Armit.Greg Prichard writes: The Storm were brought back down to earth by the Cowboys on Monday and will no doubt aim to get back to basics in this one. The Bulldogs, who remain unbeaten, have a lot of new players who are still getting used to each other, so the job they have done in overcoming the Tigers, Rabbitohs and Roosters has been excellent.Referees: S Hayne/G SuttonTV times: Live, Fox Sports 2Head to head: Storm 11, Bulldogs 14Last time: Bulldogs 20 bt Storm 18 at Adelaide Oval (rd 18, 2010)TAB Sportsbet: Storm $1.75, Bulldogs $2.05Sportingbet: Storm $1.74, Bulldogs $2.10Sportsbet: Storm $1.75, Bulldogs $2.10FootyTAB: Bulldogs (+3.5)NRL TIPPING - ROUND FOUR Roy Masters 12RabbitohsBroncosRaidersCowboysSharksDragonsRoostersStormJason Taylor 12Sea EaglesBroncosRaidersEelsWarriorsDragonsRoostersStormPhil Gould 11RabbitohsBroncosRaidersCowboysSharksDragonsRoostersStormDaniel Lane 11Sea EaglesBroncosRaidersCowboysSharksDragonsRoostersBulldogsGreg Prichard 11Sea EaglesBroncosRaidersEelsSharksDragonsRoostersBulldogsChris Barrett 10RabbitohsBroncosRaidersEelsWarriorsDragonsRoostersBulldogsAdrian Proszenko 10Sea EaglesBroncosRaidersEelsWarriorsDragonsRoostersStormBrad Walter 9RabbitohsBroncosRaidersEelsWarriorsDragonsRoostersBulldogsGlenn Jackson 8RabbitohsBroncosRaidersEelsSharksDragonsRoostersStormJosh Rakic 8RabbitohsBroncosRaidersCowboysSharksKnightsRoostersStorm
