With the top six all facing off against each other this weekend, it also means the bottom four play off and with not a lot of change set to take place at that end of the ladder, this game isn’t worth having a punt on because it’s hard to forecast how these teams will approach it.
The Wanderers had their biggest remaining game last weekend against Sydney in the derby and could be primed for an upset, but it’s hard to be too confident in a side that is locked in for another wooden spoon.
