rugby league: Swerve Wellington showdown.

Byline: Mark Langdon

THE Canterbury Bulldogs against New Zealand Warriors is a must-watch game for Sky Sports viewers early tomorrow morning, but it is very difficult to have an opinion on the game from a betting point of view.

At first glance the Bulldogs look worth a decent punt off scratch. However, the game is being played in Wellington as part of a PR exercise, and sacrificing home advantage could mean the game will be as tight as the handicaps suggest.

If there is a bet to be had, the Sharks could stay within the handicap against Newcastle.

The Knights have Test stars Adam MacDougall and Ben Kennedy unavailable due to injuries, but the only reason to be put off is the unrest in Cronulla's ranks.

Brett Kimmorley wants more money, Preston Campbell is becoming frustrated by being played out of position(because of Kimmorley) and team morale is apparently low.

Recommendation: No bet
