2013 NRL Match Previews - Round 21

Another round of NRL footy comes around and with it are Paul's weekly previews! There are some crucial match-ups to open the weekend, with Brisbane heading to Newcastle to attempt to revive their flailing final eight hopes, while Penrith need to pip the high flying Roosters to stay in touch with the teams in the running. The Warriors host the Sharks in the first of several weeks of Saturday afternoon showdowns, while the 1983 Grand Final rematch is an important one for Manly who will be looking to maintain their top four spot ahead of the Storm. Speaking of the Storm... they travel to Canberra hoping to avoid another loss which could see them risk their top four spot in coming weeks. Canberra are undefeated at home this year and part of last year - a crucial stat for the green machine as they strive to stay in the eight themselves.

Below Paul Mitry previews all the action.
