Big Money Back Special On Big NRL Clash
September 01, 2014
It’s 2 verse 3 in a race to be number 1 when the Roosters host the Rabbitohs in the NRL’s final regular season round and Australian bookmaker Sportsbet are running a money back offer on the Sydney Showdown.
The firm which offers new customers a $250 Welcome Bonus when signing up via au.freebets.com will refund losing Head to Head bets if your selection is ahead at half-time but fails to win. The money back special applies to your first wager on the game only and refunds will be in the form of a bonus bet, equal to your losing stake, up to $100.
Thursday’s Roosters Souths clash may very well be a battle for the Minor premiership with both sides on 34 competition points each heading into roudn 26. The winner will be crowned Minor Premiers if the Cowboys can beat league leaders Manly in North Queensland.
The Roosters are aiming for back to back minor premierships and have surged into contention after 5 straight wins. There’s also been a shift for the reigning premiers to retain their title, with the Chooks now slight favourites on Sportsbet’s Premiership Market ahead of this week’s opponents. They played finals like footy in a determined win over Melbourne last round and half Mitchell Pearce is delivering consistent performances at the back end of the season. The Roosters however will be without hark working hooker Jake Friend who’s been sidelined with a chest injury suffered in that victory over the Storm.
Souths fumbled and bumbled their way through a painful hour against Canterbury last Thursday but in a good sign for the Bunnies they still managed to win. Thanks largely to a 1 legged Sam Burgess who bagged a double in a physical encounter against the Bulldogs. He’s likely to be fit for the match which means another personal battle with Sonny Bill Williams. With both men heading to Rugby Union next year it could be the last time the pair of brutes belt each other, but hopefully we’ll get another re-match somewhere in the finals series.
Greg Inglis has been quiet by his standards in the past fortnight so look for one of the game’s true superstars to have an impact in this local derby. He scored a hat-trick when Souths overpowered the Roosters 28-8 in round 1 but this encounter should be much tighter.
Sportsbet refunded bets on the Bulldogs last round after they led the Bunnies at half time before being run down. And if either the Rabbits or the Roosters lose from a half time lead your winning bet on that team will be refunded again.
