The North Queensland Cowboys have been the big disappointments to date this year, winless after three rounds, but get the chance to atone on Monday against a very good Melbourne side. The Storm have won two of three but need to show they can do it on the road.

Paul Green has wielded the axe, dumping wingers Justin O’Neill and Kyle Feldt for Matt Wright and Antonio Winterstein. The latter could still be a week away though. Melbourne are unchanged.

Melbourne have a 19-8 all-time advantage over North Queensland and have won 10 of the last 13 though the last six have been split evenly. The Cowboys won 22-0 in Townsville last year but Melbourne won 32-10 the year prior at the ground. Six of the last seven between the two in Townsville have not reached 42 points. Cowboys hooker Rory Kostjasyn is a former Melbourne player.

North Queensland have been embarrassingly bad this year with three losses to open the season. After losing 28-4 at home to the Roosters they were surprised by Newcastle in Townsville before they were right royally spanked by the Broncos last Friday. The Cowboys’ attack has been horrendous with just six line breaks and seven tries while they have conceded an NRL-worst 16 tries and 17 line breaks.  Melbourne have recorded a road win against the Dragons and a home victory against the Sharks but were beaten in a close one against Manly at Brookvale. As always the Storm’s success has been based on minimising errors and a solid kick return.

The two best halves in the game are Johnathan Thurston and Cooper Cronk and their legacy will loom large over this match. Thurston has really struggled this year with just two assists in three games and a worrying decline in his running game while his 18 missed tackles are the worst in the NRL. He needs to shape up if the Cowboys are to avoid their slump. Cronk has just one assist himself but his kicking game has been superb and he has looked dangerous running the ball. If he can get on top of Thurston the Storm will be halfway to victory.

North Queensland are 19-8 (17-10 ATS) over the last three seasons at home with an average winning margin of 10.8 points. They are 3-2 straight and ATS when a small home favourite. Over the last five seasons home teams off three straight losses are 59-65 ATS but the Cowboys are 4-1 with a 3-2 ATS number. The Storm are a poor 12-14 straight and ATS on the road over the last three years with just six covers in their last 15. As a small outsider though Melbourne are 6-2 straight and ATS. Teams who conceded 40 points the week prior are 35-23 ATS.

This is it for North Queensland and faced with such a dire situation they are expected to step up. They have been much better than they have shown the last few weeks and the embarrassment of the Broncos loss might be enough to shock them into gear. The Storm aren’t great travellers and have found Townsville hard to win at recently. Melbourne are a class outfit but they don’t have the desperation North Queensland have this week. Cowboys nicely.

NRL Rugby League Steaming

The Sydney Roosters have bolted from the gates this year and will go into their clash with Canberra as the shortest priced favourites of 2015 with Ricky Stuart’s team facing a monumental task to knock off the 2013 premiers.

The Sydney Roosters are once again unchanged having fielded the same side every round. Canberra welcome Jack Wighton back to fullback though he will need to pass a fitness test to play. Jordan Rapana shifts to the wing with Bill Tupou dropped. Josh McCrone has also been dumped for Glen Buttriss.

Canberra have a surprisingly good recent record against the Roosters with six wins in the last 13 outings. The teams met just once last year with the Roosters winning 26-12. The Chooks have won 15 of the last 16 at the SFS though with their only loss coming in 2011. Five of the last six matches have tallied 38 or more. Roosters centre Blake Ferguson joined from the Raiders as is Matt McIllwrick while the Raiders have ex-Chooks Iosia Soliola and Frank-Paul Nuuausala. Canberra coach Ricky Stuart is a Roosters premiership winning coach.

The Sydney Roosters have started the season in great form with dominant wins over North Queensland and Penrith sandwiched by an impressive loss to rivals South Sydney. The Chooks have been impressive both with the ball and in defence with their fast play out of hooker setting them up to be the most dominant running team in the premiership. A dominant kicking game has also worked strongly in the Roosters’ favour. The Raiders surprised Cronulla in the opening round before dropping back-to-back home games against New Zealand and St George Illawarra, blowing an 18-point lead last week. Canberra have conceded the most run metres of any team.

Former Canberra superstar Blake Ferguson plays for the first time against his old side and will square off against new Raiders captain Jarrod Croker. Ferguson was among the Roosters’ best last week and will be a handful for Croker, who is a limited centre defensively. If Ferguson runs roughshod over the Raiders this one could get real ugly.

The Roosters are 23-8 (17-14 ATS) at the SFS under Trent Robinson with a 17-14 over record. In day matches the Roosters are 4-1 straight and ATS with a 4-1 over record with an average winning margin of 16 points. When favoured by double digits the Chooks are 11-4 (8-7 ATS) while they are 2-2 straight and ATS when favoured by 16 or more. Teams favoured by 16 or more are 18-4 with a 13-9 ATS number and a 13-9 over record. In day matches that goes to 5-1 straight and ATS with a 4-2 over record with an average winning margin of 30 points. The over is 14-5 in Raiders day matches over the last three years while Canberra are a poor 7-12 ATS in day games. They are 7-18 (12-13 ATS) in road games and 6-5 ATS in road games getting a double digit start. Canberra have started an outsider of 16 or more just once since 2009 when they won outright in 2011 in Melbourne. Ricky Stuart teams are 22-29 ATS over the last three seasons.

The Roosters should have few problems disposing of Canberra and despite the big line it can be covered with the Chooks a devastating attacking team at home in day matches. Their style is also perfect to carve up a slow Raiders team through the middle. The strongest play is the over though. All the numbers point to this game being an open affair with plenty of scoring. The line of 44.5 is too low in good weather.

Players List:

Sydney Roosters: 1 Roger Tuivasa-Sheck 2 Daniel Tupou 3 Michael Jennings 4 Blake Ferguson 5 Shaun Kenny-Dowall 6 James Maloney 7 Mitchell Pearce 8 Jared WaereaHargreaves 9 Matt McIlwrick 10 Sam Moa 11 Boyd Cordner 12 Aidan Guerra 13 Isaac Liu

The New Zealand Warriors and the Broncos celebrate the 20th anniversary of New Zealand’s first match in the NRL on Sunday afternoon in what shapes as the most compelling match of the round. New Zealand have won their last two but have fallen well short of expectation while the Broncos blasted back into title contention with a devastating win over the Cowboys.

New Zealand have lost fullback Sam Tomkins to a PCL injury meaning Tuimoala Lolohea shifts to fullback and Matt Allwood comes into the centres though Konrad Hurrell could be a late inclusion. Brisbane are unchanged with Todd Lowrie travelling as 18th man.

New Zealand and Brisbane have played 35 times with the Broncos victorious on 20 occasions and the Warriors winning 15 times. The Warriors have had a slight edge recently winning six of the last 10 and three of the last four though the Broncos saluted 28-22 last time out. Four of the last five matches have been decided by single figures. The Warriors have won the last four at Mt Smart and six of the last seven at the ground.

New Zealand opened the season with a loss before putting together back-to-back wins against Canberra (away) and Parramatta (home). They dominated the Eels early last week before handing on to win by 13. The Warriors lead the NRL in run metres and have missed the fewest tackles while their kick-chase has been the best in the NRL with opponents averaging just 59.5 kick return metres a game, less than half the competition average. The Broncos were humiliated in Round 1 by Souths at home but ground out a road win at Cronulla and the dominated North Queensland at home last Friday in one of the most impressive performances of the year. Brisbane have improved every week this season.

There is a lot of pressure on young fullbacks Tuimoala Lolohea and Jordan Kahu in this one. Lolohea played the season opener at fullback and was excellent racking up 204m and 10 tackle busts. A former pivot, he has the requisite ball-playing skills to have a major impact on this match. Kahu had a shocker in his first game at the back but has improved dramatically the last two games with coach Wayne Bennett reportedly ecstatic with his development. He scored a try and set up two in a dominant performance against the Cowboys.

The Warriors have won 14 of their last 20 at Mt Smart with 12 covers. In day games they are 10-5 with a 9-6 ATS numbers while they have covered their only start of less than a converted try at home. The Broncos are 8-13 with an 11-12 ATS interstate over the same time while they are 5-2 ATS as an interstate outsider. This is just Brisbane’s fourth day match of the last three seasons. They have won and covered two. Road teams off 40-plus are 16-21 ATS since 2013. The Warriors are 7-3 straight and ATS on back-to-back home games. The under is 14-7 in Broncos games off two back-to-back wins with covers.

The Warriors got the job done last week and can get it done again on what should be a fast surface against a team that can go to pieces defensively. The edge Brisbane defence is a huge concern and the Warriors can exploit on the fringes, particularly with Ryan Hoffman dominating for the club. The Broncos haven’t shown a huge ability to win on the road and Mt Smart is not an easy venue to win at. Though the two teams have played close matches recently it wouldn’t surprise at all if this final margin got into double digits.

Players List:

New Zealand Warriors: 1 Tuimoala Lolohea, 2 Jonathan Wright, 3 Matt Allwood, 4 Solomone Kata, 5 Manu Vatuvei, 6 Chad Townsend, 7 Shaun Johnson, 8 Jacob Lillyman, 9 Thomas Leuluai, 10 Ben Matulino, 11 Bodene Thompson, 12 Ryan Hoffman, 13 Simon Mannering.

Interchange: 14 Nathan Friend, 15 Ben Henry, 16 Sam Lisone, 17 Albert Vete, 18 Dominique Peyroux.

Brisbane Broncos: 1 Jordan Kahu, 2 Corey Oates, 3 Jack Reed, 4 Justin Hodges, 5 Lachlan Maranta, 6 Anthony Milford, 7 Ben Hunt, 8 Josh McGuire, 9 Andrew McCullough, 10 Adam Blair, 11 Alex Glenn, 12 Matt Gillett 13, Corey Parker, 14 Jarrod Wallace, 15 Joe Ofahengaue, 16 Sam Thaiday 17 Kodi Nikorima 18 Todd Lowrie

St George Illawarra Dragons and Manly Warringah Sea Eagles Two clubs who have found themselves in the throes of crisis over the opening month of the season, the Dragons and Sea Eagles will be hoping for some respite with an all-important victory on Saturday night.

Trent Merrin has been named to start at lock in place of Jack De Belin in the only change for the Dragons. Manly have named Jamie Lyon and Kieran Foran to return but both must pass late fitness tests with Foran the most in doubt. Feleti Mateo goes to the backrow while Tom Symonds drops to the bench and Justin Horo out of the side.

St George Illawarra have won 14 of the 22 all-time matches against Manly though the Eagles have won the last three clashes across the last three seasons including a 21-12 win at Kogarah last year. Five of the last six matches between the two sides have tallied 33 points or less. The Dragons are 4-1 against the Sea Eagles including a 24-6 win in their last meeting in 2011. The Saints side contains former Manly cult hero George Rose.

The Dragons have been horrible to date this year with a first-up loss to Melbourne before being embarrassed against the Tigers. They trailed 18-0 to the Raiders last week before staging a comeback against the pre-season wooden spoon favourites to get the late win. The Saints are bottom of the NRL in points and tries while they rank second in handling errors as their attack has just failed to fire all year. The Sea Eagles were flogged by Parramatta in the opening week before a courageous win over Melbourne. Last week they knuckled down against Canterbury but the final margin was flattering. Manly are surprisingly conceding the most line breaks, an indictment on a defence that has been so strong in recent years.

Fullbacks Josh Dugan and Brett Stewart are two contenders for the Blues jersey but both need to pick up after slow starts to the year. Dugan has battled injury but has shown virtually nothing for the Saints while Stewart has three tries but not a single assist and the worst kick return yardage among all fullbacks. Both are capable of brilliance but need to step up in this one.

The Saints have won four of their last 10 at Wollongong with a 5-5 ATS record. As an outsider though they are 3-2 ATS. Manly are 18-16 straight and ATS away from Brookvale over the last three seasons but have covered just one of their last seven away games and none of their last four as a road favourite. The Dragons are 7-13 ATS off a win over the last three seasons while Manly are 12-9 ATS off a loss. The Sea Eagles are 5-0 (3-2 ATS) under Gavin Badger the last four years while the Dragons are 3-4 (2-5 ATS). The under is 51-36 with a close road favourite off a cover. The under is 93-66 with a close road favourite.

Awful game to figure here. The Sea Eagles are deserved favourites but punters are advised to wait until game time to check final line-ups. Manly have been good but are a worry on the road while it is hard to see the Dragons scoring any points against a defence that is even reasonably competent. The best bet in this one is the under with the close road favourite. Neither side will be running up a big score in this game. The safe tip is Manly though it is made with no confidence.

Players List:

St George Illawarra Dragons : 1 Josh Dugan 2 Eto Nabuli 3 Euan Aitken 4 Dylan Farrell 5 Jason Nightingale 6 Gareth Widdop 7 Benji Marshall 8 Leeson Ah Mau 9 Mitch Rein 10 Mike Cooper 11 Tyson Frizell 12 Joel Thompson 13 Trent Merrin.

Interchange: 14 Rory O’Brien 15 Jack de Belin 16 Jake Marketo 17 Heath L’Estrange 20 George Rose.

Manly Sea Eagles: 1 Brett Stewart 2 Cheyse Blair 3 Jamie Lyon 4 Steve Matai 5 Peta Hiku 6 Kieran Foran 7 Daly Cherry-Evans 8 Luke Burgess 9 Matt Ballin 10 Willie Mason 11 Feleti Mateo 12 Jamie Buhrer 13 Dunamis Lui.

Interchange: 14 Jesse Sene-Lefao 15 Jake Trbojevic 16 Tom Symonds 17 Ligi Sao 18 Justin Horo.
