NSWRL Premier League : Round 3

The draw for Round 3 of the NSWRL Premier League is as follows:

Round 3 - Fri. April 25th - Sun. April 27th.

Roosters vs Dragons - Fri. April 25th, Aussie Stadium. Kick off - 12.40pm. Curtain raiser to the NRL match between the respective teams. Both teams so far have one win and one loss.

Parramatta vs Cronulla - Fri. 25th April, Parramatta Stadium. Kick off - 5.50pm. A near top of the table clash betweeen these two sides will lead to some great football before the main NRL event.

Newcastle vs Balmain - Sat. 26th April, EnergyAustralia Stadium. Kick off - 3.30pm. Newcastle, at home, will be looking to secure their first win. The famous Newcastle crowds will certainly be there to help. Balmain will certainly be trying to stop this.

Canberra vs Canterbury - Sat. 26th April, Canberra Stadium. Kick off - 5.40pm. Also the curtain raiser before the NRL game. The Bulldogs have the number one position on the NSWRL Premier League ladder. The Raiders will have their work cut out to topple them, although their resounding win over Norths in Round 2 would've given them a wealth of confidence.

Manly vs Souths - Sun. 27th April, Brookvale Oval. Kick off - 12.40pm. Manly have yet to have their first win of the competition, so not better place than home to achieve this.

Wests vs Newtown - Sun 27th April, Campbelltown. Kick off - 2.30pm. Western Suburbs will look to make amends for last week's loss to the Eels when they take on the Newtown Jets at Campbelltown this Sunday. This promises to be a great clash with the undefeated Bluebags already off to their best start since returning to this level.

Norths vs Cougars - Sun. 27th April, North Sydney Oval. Kick off - 3.00pm. Norths currently sit on the bottom of the ladder, so certainly will be looking for an improvement. The joint venture Penrith/St Marys Cougars have been showing some great flare, and have not been giving many points away in their games.
