NRL Round 7 Sweepstake Game

ANZAC Day footy

The 2019 ANZAC Day double header starts with the free scoring Roosters against the Dragons. Having scored 161 points in 6 games and with a winning streak of 5 since losing its opening match of the season the Sydney Roosters have been demonstrating that claiming another premier is very much on the cards. St George Illawarra might have got out of jail with a last minute try against Manly in week 6 but when playing swopstakes this week it might be good to be looking out for tickets with plenty of points in the game or for the Roosters to win no matter what the handicap is.

Top of the ladder sit Melbourne Storm who takes on the Warriors in game 2 on Anzac Day. The New Zealand Warriors has been conceding plenty of points (141) this season and currently has the joint second worst defence. Depending on what tickets become available for the upcoming swopstakes game we imagine plenty of your will be wanting to make sure you get the Storm to score plenty of points.


Friday night kicks off with two teams towards the bottom of the ladder as Canterbury plays North Queensland in what might be a low scoring game as both teams have struggled in attack. We think that this could be a close encounter and might be the springboard for either side to get its season up and running with a much-needed win. Game 2 sees the Panthers hosting the Rabbitohs in a match which South Sydney will be very keen to win to prove that the recent defeat to the Sea Eagles was more of a blip and that it remains lively contenders for the premier this season. Another close game here so likely that many Swopstakes players will be keen to have tickets which cover as many outcomes as possible to secure some winning tickets.


Saturday’s first match has the West Tigers playing the Gold Coast Titans in a game that is being played in Tamworth. With the Titans being 0-3 away from home this year it doesn’t look a good time to be backing them but how will the West Tigers respond after the 51-6 mauling at the hands of the Eels in the last round? Perhaps this could be the time to swap your tickets and throw caution to the wind? It hasn’t been a good start for the Broncos this year but returning to Suncorp might just help out as the Sharks wont get out of jail too many times as happened when coming back from 20-6 down against the Panthers in Round 6. Will ScoMo be dancing in the stands again or can the Broncos start to climb up the ladder to reach the top 8? It sounds like this could be a low scoring game and depending on what tickets you have perhaps swopstakers might choose to cash out.


Sunday afternoon won’t be a quiet one, especially for swopstakers who still have tickets in play. The Sea Eagles take on the Raiders in what looks sure to be a feisty battle. After their first loss in about a month, and a slightly contentious one at that, the Manly Sea Eagles will be ready to take on the high-flying Raiders at Lottoland. Canberra has been taken to the top of the ladder thanks to its tight defence this season with only 66 points conceded. Might be worth keeping this in mind when seeing what markets feature this game, it could pay to swap or buy tickets tactically.

...last but not least

The final game of round 7 sees the Knights at home to the Eels in a game which Newcastle urgently needs to win to avoid sinking to the bottom of the ladder. Parramatta on the other-hand welcomed the opening of the new Bankwest Stadium with a 51-6 thumping of the Tigers, if Parramatta shows that form again this game could be very one-sided.

Newcastle need to remember what it took to defeat Cronulla in the opening-round to be competitive and get its season back on track. Being the final game of the round, if your swopstakes ticket is still alive will you have the bottle to keep hold of your ticket or will it be too tempting to sell it so you can buy even more tickets in the next NRL game? Whatever you do – be lucky and enjoy the footy this ANZAC Day.
