FARAH’S BUNNIES FAVOURITES TO BEAT TAYLOR’S TIGERS

TAB has opened Souths favourites for Robbie Farah to gain a dose of revenge against his old side Wests Tigers in Round 1 of the 2017 NRL season.

The Bunnies are $1.55 while the Tigers are $2.45 for the ‘grudge’ match on the second night of the season on Friday March 3 at Sydney’s ANZ Stadium.

“Everyone loves a great spat and the Robbie Farah-Jason Taylor war at the Tigers was certainly one of the biggest in recent times”, TAB’s Gerard Middleton said.

“The audience should be huge to see Farah turn out in Souths colours for the first time so we’re expecting huge betting interest in this fixture.”

Meantime, premiers Cronulla and Brisbane have opened $1.90 a pick for their season opener at Southern Cross Group Stadium on Thursday March 2.

The two clubs met just once this year, with the Sharks prevailing 30-28 in a Round 9 epic also on their home ground.

“This is an intriguing fixture as for the first time ever Cronulla head into a season being ‘the hunted’ and will be without Ben Barba, while the Broncos could possibly have Benji Marshall lining up”, Middleton said.

“Recent history suggests a tight one with the margin being no more than eight in their past four clashes, and Cronulla winning three of those by either one or two points.”
