NRL First Tryscorer Special on Returning Rabbitohs

The Bunnies are back in action on Friday night after the bye in round 15 of the NRL but can they bounce back to winning ways when they meet Manly.

Having had the bye last weekend the NRL reigning premiers are back in action on Friday night and to celebrate South Sydney’s round 16 return Sportsbet have a special on their match with Manly. The bookmaker will refund losing first tryscorer bets if your selection scores any other try in the game. That’s money back into your account, up to $100, if the bloke you back to get the opening try, manages any four pointer other than the first. The money back promotion applies to your first wager on the market only so if you pick a player who’s going to cross the line.

Big Prices on Big Names

Souths leading tryscorer Alex Johnston is an $8 favourite to get proceedings underway. He’s scored 3 tries in his last 2 games against Manly including a double in last year’s preliminary final. Adam Reynolds also bagged a brace in that match, one of which was the first try. The Rabbitohs half back is a big price of $26 to do it again. Greg Inglis at $11 is eye-catching. GI is back for the Bunnies having their loss to the Tigers while on Queensland duties. The superstar fullback hasn’t been at his best recently but showed signs of hitting top gear in the second State of Origin. Could Souths number one be first across the white stripe?

Manly’s custodian Brett Stewart is often first across the white line for his side. He was last round before scoring another to take his tally of tries for 2015 to 10. $15 for the first try on Friday night could see Sea Eagles fans swooping on those odds. Manly wingers Tom Trbojevic and Jorge Taufua are both at $13, that’s the shortest price of any Sea Eagle.

Sign up with Sportsbet have a crack at a first tryscorer and see if you can kick off your weekend with a win. Remember if your man doesn’t manage the opening try your bet isn’t blown, as long as he does find a four pointer before the full time siren.
