The Roosters may be the team in better form, but this local derby always brings out the best in both sides. I think the Roosters will take the two points in a close fought battle. Here are my NRL fantasy tips for tonights highly anticipated clash.



Angus Crichton ($4,000) has found himself in the starting side so he’ll be my first picked forward. I also like Mitchell Aubusson ($6,300) who seems to be getting involved in attacking plays also provides a consistent base output. Keep in mind that John Sutton ($7,800) has been moved to the halves. This will reduce his base output but increases his chance of jagging attacking stats.


Cody Walker ($8,800) has been has been moved to fullback and should produce a score beyond his worth. He’ll be my halves choice despite playing for the underdogs. Luke Keary ($6,000) could also be a good option although his performance last week was a little poor.

Outside Backs

Siosifa Talakai ($3,500) has returned to the centres after being dropped last week. He should be great value with his bottom dollar price tag. Robert Jennings ($3,500) and Joseph Manu ($3,900) are the other cheap options and should also be considered. Latrell Mitchell ($7,500) is my preferred choice from the more expensive options. The Bunnies have a few injuries among the backs which could prove favourable for Mitchell.
