Watch National Rugby Championship NRC Live Streaming 2014 Round 8 Greater Sydney Rams vs Melbourne Rising match will be kick off at Pirtek Stadium, Sydney Saturday 11 October 2014 online, Time 15:00 AEDT and its broadcast On Fox Sports.
The Greater Sydney Rams will return to Pirtek Stadium for a clash against the undefeated Melbourne Rising in Round 8 of the Buildcorp NRC.Melbourne Rising flyhalf Jack Debreczeni is currently the top point scorer in the competition on 90 points, while teammate Veainu Telusa tops the try scorers list (eight tries).
The Rams come into this match after recording the best win of their season. Last week Brisbane City were bullied around the ruck and out wide as the Rams put their more fancied opponents to the sword. That being said the Rams haven’t had a stand out season and while they are currently in the top four, a bye next week means this might be the last time we see them this year. They need to win this match if they are to play in the finals.
The Rising have been a juggernaut this NRC season, six wins from six and each time scoring three or more tries than their opponents. With two rounds to go they are the only team which has secured a finals berth and should be well rested, coming off a bye.
Melbourne are obvious favourites, but may take time to adjust to the match as is the case sometimes after a break. The Rams are in as good form as could be hoped for, but I can still only give them an outside chance here.
Prediction: Rising by 12
