NRL 2012: ANZAC Test City v Country NYC Origin Preview Tips Teams Predictions Late Mail Fantasy News Odds

REPRESENTATIVE ROUND TIPPING PREVIEW
By W D Nicolson 

In Round 7, we saw the Tigers and Titans finally win a second game, Melbourne made it seven on the trot and Terry Campese's season ending injury ended the Raiders as well.

This week - the NRL takes the weekend off and the ANZAC Test, City-Country and NYC Origin take centre stage... just not live if the game is on Channel 9.

For more on how we see the Rep Weekend unfolding, check out the Podcast and Preview below.

For game-specific Late Mail every week - check back on Friday (or if there's an earlier game, earlier) for all your tipping and fantasy game needs.

THURSDAY GAME PREVIEW
Listen to the Podcast for a full preview, but we like the Australia in a close one. Look New Zealand have a habit of sticking with Australia for 50 minutes and then fading and that may well happen on Friday but with Marshall and Johnson in the team - New Zealand should have some points in them. All the signs point to an Australian win by 20 but this ANZAC Test I'm willing to believe in the Kiwis to make it a close one at home.
TIPPING AND FANTASY LATE MAIL
SMH and Other Late Mail - Matt Gillett will be 18th man for Australia, while Gerard Beale and Jason Taumalolo are the extras for the Kiwis.

THURSDAY GAME PREVIEW
Listen to the Podcast for a full preview, but we like the City Origin off the back of the class in their #6 and #9 to steer them home and secure Hayne an Origin berth (albeit likely at fullback) and Farah a chance to deputise for Danny Buderus. The Country pack is better but I've just got a hunch that Hayne and Farah make this game their own. Mind you - go Country!
