The NRL reaches round nine this weekend and there are two exciting matches taking place on Friday and you can watch live streaming rugby league online.
Parramatta Eels desperately need a win on Friday when they host the Canterbury Bulldogs in the NRL if they are to move off the bottom of the league ladder.
The Eels are not having the best of seasons and they are currently bottom of the pile with just one win from eight matches - although they did show signs of improvement last weekend.
Parramatta almost completed an amazing comeback victory against the Wests Tigers after coming back from 31-0 to fall agonisingly short as they lost 31-30.
The Bulldogs, who are coached by Des Hasler, are currently sixth on the rankings list and will be setting their sights on a top four finish in the play-offs.
The Bulldogs head into this game on the back of a narrow 12-10 defeat at the hands of the defending champions Manly Sea Eagles in a game that saw both teams score two tries apiece.
As expected the Bulldogs are seen as the favourites with Luxbet and the Doggies are on offer at $1.45, while the Eels are available at 2.75.
North Queensland Cowboys play host to St George Illawarra Dragons on Friday in what could potentially be a Grand Final taster.
These two teams have to be taken seriously and will most definitely be involved at the business end of the season - but on Friday it will just be two competition points up for grabs.
It is unfair to label the Cowboys a one-man team, but it is safe to say that if Jonathan Thurston was injured or suspended for a long period of time then they would struggle to make the top four.
The Cowboys are currently fifth on the league ladder with eight points after recording four wins from eight matches.
They head into this clash on the back of a 20-16 narrow defeat at the hands of South Sydney Rabbitohs with both teams scoring three tries each.
Steve Price’s men with Red Vees are currently fourth on the ladder with 10 points, but they know that a lack of concentration in earlier rounds have cost them the chance to be really pushing the Storm at the top of the ladder.
The Dragons do come into this game on the back of a hard-fought 28-24 win over Sydney Roosters on ANZAC Day with Matt Prior and Michael Weyman crossing over in the final five minutes to seal an unlikely victory.
This should be an entertaining tussle and the Cowboys are slight favourites with Luxbet at $1.68, while the Dragons can be backed at 2.15.
