2022 NRL Round 15 Preview: Our Selections

It was a huge week last week with 15 units ($1,500) jumping into the account and we will be looking for a similar result in round 15 where we have 9 tips.

2022 Season Premium Tipping Results:

MANLY SEA EAGLES VS NORTH QUEENSLAND COWBOYS – FRIDAY JUNE 17, 6:00PM, 4 PINES PARK

Todd Payten’s men have won five from seven away games in 2022 so a trip to Manly’s spiritual home shouldn’t faze them, although the loss of young gun Heilum Luki for the season presents a significant challenge after a relatively injury-free run to date.

The Sea Eagles’ emphatic wins over the Warriors (44-12) and Tigers (30-4) in the past fortnight – both without Daly Cherry-Evans – were impressive, but they are yet to beat a Top 8 team this season.

Manly has won its last four against North Queensland, including a pair of landslide results in 2021 – 50-16 at Brookvale in Round 14 and 46-18 in Townsville in the final round, but this Cowboys incarnation is an entirely different prospect.



MELBOURNE STORM VS BRISBANE BRONCOS – FRIDAY JUNE 17, 7:55PM, AAMI PARK

After winning just seven games last season and three the year before, Brisbane have already chalked up nine wins this year on the back of Adam Reynolds’ poise and the power of Pat Carrigan and Payne Haas, but they’ll have to make do without their skipper at AAMI Park after he injured his ribs against Canberra.

Melbourne grafted out a 26-18 win over Sydney Roosters at the SCG last Saturday to improve to 11-3, with backline fill-ins Grant Anderson and Marion Seve both bagging doubles.

The Storm have won 27 of their last 31 against the Broncos. Somewhat encouragingly for the Broncos, their last three wins in the rivalry came at AAMI Park.


CRONULLA SHARKS VS GOLD COAST TITANS – SATURDAY JUNE 18, 3:00PM, COFFS HARBOUR INTERNATIONAL STADIUM

Under new coach Craig Fitzgibbon the Sharks are putting together an impressive campaign although a lack of consistency has become something of a concern with their last eight games reading L-W-L-W-L-W-L-W.

The 3-11 Titans have slipped to last on the NRL ladder after their ninth loss in 10 games, a 30-16 home defeat to the Rabbitohs. Justin Holbrook’s confidence-stricken side has the 14th-ranked defence and 13th-ranked attack.

Cronulla extended its winning streak against Gold Coast to seven matches with a 25-18 victory in Round 11. Expect the result to be considerably more convincing this time around in the Sharks’ backyard.






NEW ZEALAND WARRIORS VS PENRITH PANTHERS – SATURDAY JUNE 18, 5:30PM, MORETON DAILY STADIUM

The Panthers could not have been more impressive in their demolition of Newcastle while the Warriors started well enough against Cronulla but fell away badly in Jones’ first game at the helm.

Untimely errors and shabby edge defence were the familiar catalysts for the Warriors’ eighth loss in nine games.

But Stacey Jones has rung the changes this week, handing hyped half Ronald Volkman a debut and relegating Chanel Harris-Tavita a bench utility role.

The Panthers have won their last four against the Warriors, but the last two clashes witnessed arguably the Warriors’ gutsiest performances of the previous two seasons.


PARRAMATTA EELS VS SYDNEY ROOSTERS – SATURDAY JUNE 18, 7:35PM, COMMBANK STADIUM

The Eels and Roosters are locked in the battle for spots in the bottom half of the top eight and a win here would be a huge stepping stone to September.

The blue-and-golds are infuriatingly enigmatic – capable of beating Melbourne and Penrith, but flaking out against wooden spoon contenders.

The 7-7 Sydney Roosters aren’t exactly flying, either having won only one of their last four and went down at home to a depleted Storm 26-18 last Saturday. Sam Verrills returns at hooker, while Luke Keary has been named despite concussion concerns.

Trent Robinson’s men got the better of the Eels in Magic Round but have lost three of four since that clash, while Parramatta will be reeling after an ambush at the hands of the Bulldogs on Sunday.



CANBERRA RAIDERS VS NEWCASTLE KNIGHTS – SUNDAY JUNE 19, 2:00PM, GIO STADIUM

Canberra and Newcastle meet at GIO Stadium on Sunday afternoon with form lines that show just one win from the last five rounds, but perhaps missing the full picture of truly where these sides are at.

The 4-9 Newcastle Knights have struggled to get within 20 points of any team of moderate quality and raised the white flag in a 42-6 loss at home to Penrith last Sunday.


CANTERBURY BULLDOGS VS WESTS TIGERS – SUNDAY JUNE 19, 4:05PM, COMMBANK STADIUM

The Bulldogs arrive at CommBank Stadium on an absolute high having dismantled arch-rivals Parramatta on Sunday in the upset of the season.

With Matt Burton and Josh Addo-Carr running amok out wide and Tevita Pangai jnr on a mission in the middle, the Bulldogs stormed to their third win of the season and gave hope for better things to come in the run home.

Fellow wooden spoon contenders Wests Tigers responded encouragingly initially under caretaker coach Brett Kimmorley last Saturday, trailing Manly by just two early in the second half… before crumbling to a 30-4 loss.

The struggling, coach-axing teams meet for the second time in five weeks, the Tigers prevailed 36-22 at Leicchardt Oval in Potter’s first match in charge of the Bulldogs, who fought back admirably from an 18-0 halftime scoreline.
