NRL Round 20 Tips from The Postman | 2020 Season


The Postman's Tips for Round 202020.
Published September 23, 2020


So... another 6/8 effort and of the two upsets there was only one you possibly saw coming... and it wasn't the Bulldogs over Rabbitohs. Manly are really bad at some basics right now and the Titans are playing adventurous footy and getting rewarded.

But still to get to 108 from 152 with 8 games left, means that to stay at the 70% success rate for the season - I need to get at least 4/8 in Round 20.

Can it be done? Who knows after Ricky Stuart and Craig Bellamy rested 87% of their rosters for the final round in what should have been gimme games at full strength.

Round 19 Results:
Bulldogs 26 Rabbitohs 16 Incorrect
Panthers 32 Cowboys 12 
Correct
Eels 26 Broncos 12 - 
Correct
Titans 42 Sea Eagles 24 Incorrect
Storm 50 Tigers 22 Correct
Roosters 34 Sharks 18 Correct

Knights 42 Dragons 18

Round 20 Tips:
Thursday
Broncos over Cowboys
I have absolutely no idea who to pick here... expecting to be 0/1 straight away. Seriously who do you pick???

Friday
Knights over Titans
0/2 is on the cards already! Getting to 4/8 could be tough kids. Knights on the road but they do have a home final to play for... so go with Ponga and Pearce.

Roosters over Rabbitohs
If the Knights drop their earlier game to the Titans then Souths will be playing for a home final here so if you desperate you can entertain the Bunnies... but don't be dumb. Pick Easts.

Saturday
Panthers over Bulldogs
Penrith don't stuff up like Souths last week. Dogs however might need to win to avoid the spoon if the Broncos win on Friday night... but yeah Penrith.

Raiders over Sharks
UPDATE SATURDAY 4:55pm Saturday: With the Sharks now resting four players of their own, going with the Raiders in a change of tip.
Surely Cronulla beat a reserve grade side and get their confidence up for the real thing a week later against the same opposition.

Eels over Tigers
Parra and the Tigers in a track meet in Benji's last game... it'll be entertaining I'm sure of that but go with the Eels who may need to win to hold onto 4th.

Sunday
Warriors over Sea Eagles
No RTS is a factor but again no Tommy Trbojevic and Manly are a rabble outside of DCE really. I really don't have a preference here but it is the Warriors last game of the season and it is on the Central Coast so I'm going with them to say goodbye to their hosts with a win.

Storm over Dragons
Toss a coin... and pick Melbourne anyway.

NRL Round 19 Tips from The Postman | 2020 Season


The Postman's Tips for Round 192020.
Published September 16, 2020


WHY DID I KEEP FAITH WITH THE WARRIORS!?!
A perfect round was just sitting there and I didn't use my brain... sure the Warriors win and I'm a genius with 8/8 and everyone else who breezed through to 7/7 would be crying about the Sharks... but it was a dumb upset pick at the end of the round.
If the game was at the start of the round - no dramas at all - you cop it and move on but Shaun Johnson was playing and I even said as much "If Shaun Johnson plays I will probably go with the Sharks but at this stage - Warriors baby!" - so to drop a perfecto like this is sheer stupidity.
Listen to thine self... yikes.
Still 7/8 doesn't suck. On to Round 19.

Round 19 Tips:
Thursday
Rabbitohs over Bulldogs
Souths should really put a 20+ margin of victory on the woeful Bulldogs this Thursday.

Friday
Panthers over Cowboys
Penrith should put 40 on the Cowboys.

Eels over Broncos
Parramatta bounce back here and probably win well. Brisbane are a mess and the end of 2020 can't come quick enough.

Saturday
Sea Eagles over Titans
Roll the dice. If Tom Trbojevic plays Manly deserve favouritism but the Gold Coast have been playing the far better footy over the last two months. Manly I guess.

Storm over Tigers
Melbourne win and secure 2nd spot for the Finals.

Roosters over Sharks
Even though Tedesco and Taukeiaho aren't playing - Cronulla are going to get an almighty reality check from the Premiers on Saturday night.

Sunday
Raiders over Warriors
If Canberra match the Warriors up front in the first half - this game has the look of quite a few games Canberra has won of late - a close first half and then it'll be downhill skiing for them in the second.

Knights over Dragons
Newcastle and Saints were bad bad bad last week... Newcastle are still a chance at a home final as the 5th or 6th seed so they surely lift for this with Ponga, Barnett and Hunt back.

NRL Round 18 Tips from The Postman | 2020 Season

The Postman's Tips for Round 182020.
Published September 8, 2020


Let's be honest - Manly had their game won well before Josh Reynolds and Russell Packer did their Maccas run... but then the Tigers played some caution to the wind footy and consigned the Sea Eagles to possibly their worse loss of the season (yes I'm including their numerous pathetic efforts so far) as you just shouldn't lose a game like that when it seems the only thing the last 10 minutes is going to offer is whether or not you'll break 40 points or maybe even 50... The Tigers were shot. Yikes Dessie... not a good look.

The other upset was the Cowboys beating a Dragons team that has just no idea... they had the Titans and Cowboys back to back and a Sharks team teetering on the edge of implosion ahead of them and they've dropped both games... disastrous for Dean Young's head coaching hopes but it's not like Anthony Griffin's going to last long in the gig now he's got it from next year (on just a two year contract = such faith!).

Those were the two games I dropped in Round 17... but admittedly I wasn't overly adventurous with the tips. 

95 from 136 with three rounds to go is 69.9%... so 70% is achievable but I can't afford to miss much.

Round 18 Tips:
Thursday
Rabbitohs over Tigers
South Sydney couldn't get the job done against Melbourne but their form stayed pretty good despite the defeat. The Tigers were ordinary for most of their win over Manly and the final flurry shouldn't make you think they've turned a corner. Souths here.

Friday
Sea Eagles over Bulldogs
Next...

Panthers over Eels
Penrith need to get ruthless before the end of the season and dust someone like they did Manly and Canberra in back to back weeks a month or so ago... smashing Parra who likely won't have Mahoney would be just the tonic to pace themselves into the Finals. Parra have barely fired a bullet since they tore the Cowboys up in Round 8 and need a big scalp to reenergise their self belief. The Eels aren't without hope here but it is Penrith for me.

Saturday
Raiders over Dragons
Canberra didn't try and attack against the Chooks and got handled easily... the Dragons just showed zero gumption in losing to the pitiful Cowboys in a game that finally decided their Top 8 fate... go with the Raiders but Saints will show up again in one of the three games to finish their horror season... be warned.

Titans over Broncos
The Gold Coast will finish ahead of the Broncos on the table regardless of this result but they can make sure the Cowboys can't catch them in the completely useless 'battle for QLD' if they beat Brisbane. And I expect them to... although David Fifita will be primed to show what he can do against his future teammates. Still the Titans have the form of late on the board so you need to pick them.

Roosters over Knights
No Ponga, Barnett or Hunt - and the Chooks will probably be in a position to start Crichton and Cordner for the first time in a long time together on the edges. Keary and Tedesco could have a field day on Newcastle's edges... but JWH will be a bit lost without Ponga to target all match. Chooks win and win well to secure their Top 4 spot.

Sunday
Storm over Cowboys
Melbourne by as many as Craig Bellamy wants them to win by... is there a goals in a game record Cameron Smith can add to his collection?

Warriors over Sharks
Cmon Warriors - give us all something to cheer for the final two weeks of the season by knocking off the Sharks and getting to within 2 points of them in 8th spot (but realistically they need to finish 2 points clear of the Sharks due to differential issues)... Cronulla will however be safe in the Top 8 if they win here and could actually finish as high as 5th or 6th if they won out and results went their way. If Shaun Johnson plays I will probably go with the Sharks but at this stage - Warriors baby!
