NRL Round 2 Tips from The Postman - 2020 Season

Published March 19, 2020


The Postman's Tips for Round 2, 2020.

Yuck yuck yuck yuck... well 4/5 to start Round 1 was handy... 0/3 to finish it was not.

Never change your tip during the weekend kids... when The Postman heard that Luke Brooks was out for the Tigers - the Dragons got the little green tick and promptly disappointed a lot of people. But not the actual Dragons fans - they knew what was coming... it's a shame we didn't stick to our own convictions post-Brooks being out.

Anyhoo - Manly, North Queensland and the Roosters also upset the apple cart, as one continues to never learn when it comes to the Storm and Round 1.

But the good news is we get a Round 2 to watch (and tip) - and a chance to aim high and go for 5/8 this week.

NOT The Footy Show Episode 203 Podcast is up - listen below.

Let's get to the tips.

Round 2 Tips:
  • Can't trust the Cowboys despite them clearly having more firepower than Canterbury. But the Dogs did defend well last week so let's go with that.
  • Refuse to trust Saints two weeks in a row... Penrith iffy here though for mine. Risky road pick.
  • South Sydney handle Haas and Fifita and they win... not an easy task though. But doable.
  • Canberra put a big score on the Warriors before the latter pulls the pin on 2020 for the time being.
  • Roosters give Manly an 0-2 start to 2020 because I can't see Easts having that record instead.
  • Storm go 2-0, Sharks drop to 0-2.
  • Newcastle got a gimme last week, Tigers won an important game against another Top 8 aspirant, same goes this week and if the Tigers want to shake their 9th placed mantle - they win this game.
  • Titans might be at home but Parra are winning this in style. 

2020 Tipping Record: 4/8 @ 50%
Round 01: 4/8
Round 02: 0/0

NRL Round 1 Tips from The Postman - Season 2020

Published March 12, 2020


The Postman's Tips for Round 1, 2020.

Yes it looks like those weekly dart throws from The Postman are back for Season 2020. All three of you who care rejoice!

Last year wasn't actually a bad season tipping wise but my apologies for not posting them on this website week in week out like I had since 2010 - I will look to rectify this across the 2020 season, as you will see a lot more NRL content here on www.wdnicolson.com and on the YouTube Channel.

NOT The Footy Show's Season Predictions dropped last night - watch below on YouTube or get the Podcast version.

Normal NOT The Footy Show service with Robb Cox in the co-host seat will resume next week after Round 1.

Let's get to the tips.
Round 1 Tips:

  • Parra to do a number on the Dogs at Bankwest.
  • Canberra likewise over the Gold Coast.
  • North Queensland open their new stadium with a win over Brisbane.
  • Newcastle can't afford to lose first up to the Warriors, and shouldn't.
  • Souths to beat Cronulla.
  • Roosters to take care of business in Penrith.
  • Manly to narrowly defeat Melbourne at Brookie.
  • Tigers to beat Saints in Golden Point in Wollongong - UPDATE SUNDAY: With Luke Brooks withdrawing, Saints get the pick instead of the Tigers. 
NOTE: St George Illawarra picked on Sunday instead of the Tigers.
2020 Tipping Record: 0/0 @ %
Round 01: /8
