NRL round 24: Preview
With only three games left in the 2010 National Rugby League season the stakes are high. With several teams hanging around the eighth spot trying to get into the post-season, round 24 should be especially exciting.
Panthers vs. Rabbitohs

The Panthers are coming off of a tough loss to the Wests Tigers, and will be looking to maintain home-field advantage with a win this week.
Meanwhile, the Rabbitohs currently sit in ninth spot, and will need to garner some points in the next couple rounds if they hope to move into a play-off spot.
The Panthers are in fourth with 28 points, while the Rabbitohs are in ninth with 24 points.
Knights vs. Broncos
The Knights host the Broncos at Energy Australia Stadium this week.

The Knights are in 12th spot with 22 points, while the Broncos are in eighth with 26 points.

Cowboys vs. Bulldogs
The Cowboys welcome the Bulldogs to Dairy Farmers Stadium in Saturday’s second game.

Storm vs. Sharks
The Storm welcome the Sharks to AAMI Park in the final game on Saturday.
