Soward says: The Warriors have another chance in the halves with Hayze Perham set to partner Adam Keighran. This is a game that is winnable for them but teh Jets will jsut be desperate for a win and I like Braydon Trindall working alongside Grant Garvey. It will be tough heading over to New Zealand but think the Jets win by 2.

Soward says: The Panthers are rolling at the moment and they have soem guys there that got some representative experience in the Under 20's Origin clash. I wouldn't be surprised if Spencer Leinu pushes for a first-grade spot at the backend of the year. Looking at the Knights, it seems as though they just want to get to the end of the season. The Panthers should be too good and have them to win by 16.

Soward says: Blacktown Workers had an amazing win over the Rabbitohs last week but come up against a Bears side that are unpredictable at times and can turn it on when they like. They need to be able to build pressure against the Sea Eagles who will take confidence out of their performance from last weekend. i'm tipping a tight one and the Bears by 1 point in a thriller.

Soward says: This is a huge game for the Magpies and I'm expecting a much better effort than what they have delivered in recent weeks. Young Jock Madden will have to have a big game if they are to get a win over an in-form Dragons outfit. They haven't been disciplined enough throughout the year and now face a skillful Dragons side with players like Joe Lovodua and Adam Clune, who leads the competition in try-assists. They played out a 22-all draw last time they met but have the Dragons winning by 6.
