NRL Round 20 Tips from The Postman | 2017 Season

The Postman's Round 20 NRL Tips
2017 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - July 18, 2017


5 from 6 and only the Titans bashing the Sharks kept us from the mid-range perfecto. As a result of two good weeks back to back (shorter or not) the tipping success rate for the year is edging back to 65% - not quite the lofty 70.8% last year but we finished with a rush last year remember.

Back to the full rounds from here on and Thursday Night Football is back to stay. So don't get caught out missing an easy tip when it presents itself.

And hey - pretty early uploading of my tips all things considered!

Tips for Round 20 2017

Broncos over Bulldogs
Brisbane should put Canterbury out of their misery (finally) for 2017.

Roosters over Knights
Chooks should win this well even without a few key players. SKD up against his old team is an interesting subplot though.

Sharks over Rabbitohs
Cronulla bounce back in a big way - Souths to stay in it early but get run over late.

Panthers over Titans
Moylan plays and I'm more confident in this result. Titans lose this and they are pretty much cactus as Penrith are a team they need to rein in ahead of them for a Top 8 spot. Good matchup though - expect a quality game as the Titans are very capable on their day and are getting healthier.

Storm over Raiders
Canberra are at home and despite their tenuous playoff situation suggesting they could force an upset - you have to pick Melbourne in your tips. They lead the comp you know.

Cowboys over Warriors
Cowboys are playing very good and positive footy without JT and the Warriors begin life without SJ... Cowboys at home too.

Sea Eagles over Dragons
Manly are no certainties here despite the last two months of contrasting form. You pick Saints at home and I don't think you are insane... but Manly are the logical pick based on form. But I've got a feeling...

Eels over Tigers
Eels win this and they set up a situation where they need only 2 wins from their final 6 games to make the Top 8. As a result - I can't see them losing this if they are even remotely a fair dinkum footy team. You can't lose this game Parra - just like the one against Melbourne (sans Origin players) a few weeks back.

NRL Round 19 Tips from The Postman | 2017 Season

The Postman's Round 19 NRL Tips
2017 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - July 13, 2017


4 from 4 and it was not an easy round kids... so take the limited perfecto and run into Round 19 with me.

🚨 Unfortunately logistics around Origin 3 (oh and NSW losing) meant we couldn't record a post-game NOT The Footy Show Podcast this week. We will be back this Sunday.

Tips for Round 19 2017

Panthers over Warriors
Penrith are you any good? We'll find out tomorrow night because the Warriors aren't very good but the loser here I think is almost definitely toast for 2017 (in a making the Finals sense mainly... Penrith could put a run together maybe in September but the Warriors certainly won't).

Raiders over Dragons
See above in regards to Penrith. Canberra's Finals chances are running on fumes right now and they were horrendous last time out against the Cowboys. Really should pick Saints in this one but Canberra tease that they could go on a run... it's just, they haven't since a 3 game winning streak in what feels like forever ago.

Broncos over Knights
Should be one way traffic in Newcastle.

Sharks over Titans
Titans got the Sharks in Cronulla earlier this year but I think the Sharks return the favour on the Gold Coast. Hayne was gutted after not being a factor in Origin 3 and has a big one here but the Sharks find a way I think - just too much depth up front for the Titans to hold.

Sea Eagles over Tigers
Manly win and probably win well.

Cowboys over Rabbitohs
Might change this one closer to kick-off but the Cowboys played really enterprising footy in beating Canberra and the Bunnies couldn't back up a great week of attacking footy with even a decent one against the under-manned Roosters. This is in Cairns so practically a home game for the Cowboys.
