NRL.com previews for all six matches from the weekend's NRL games.

NRL.com's writers and editors make their predictions about who will take out this weekend's games.

The Sea Eagles will be out to avenge their Round 5 loss as they welcome the Wests Tigers to Brookvale Oval on Friday night.

The Eels handed the Warriors a 36-16 thrashing in Round 1. Back at Mt Smart Stadium, it's unlikely we'll see a repeat of that scoreline in Round 18.

Two teams brimming with Origin stars clash at AAMI Park on Saturday night, with the Bulldogs the only NRL side to hold a winning record over the Storm.

Two teams with a win apiece since the Representative Round back at the start of May but only one comes into this one with the top eight still in their sights.

One of these teams will walk away from Remondis Stadium with a hat-trick of wins in the bag and with a finals berth still a mathematical possibility.

After two weeks on the road Penrith will be aiming to record their eighth win in nine games at home when they host Brisbane on Monday night.
