NRL Round 8 Tips from The Postman | 2018 Season

The Postman's Round 8 NRL Tips
2018 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - April 24 2017


3/8 - we're in serious trouble kids. 

This has just been a horrible year to tip. Heck I was celebrating back to back 4/8s only a week ago.

Good luck... because there isn't any of it below.


Tips for Round 8 2018

Dragons over Roosters
Saints... I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt here. Roosters forwards were good last week but the Dragons starting pack is outstanding. Saints I think.

Storm over Warriors

No Shaun Johnson in a game like this makes my decision much easier... can't believe I just openly admitted considered the Warriors here. What kind of year is this!?

Broncos over Rabbitohs

Flipping a coin... Sam Burgess being rightfully suspended is why I lean back to the Broncos. But seriously I'm tipping at 41% this year so don't listen to me.

Sea Eagles over Knights

Manly... I think. No Mitchell Pearce for the Knights and DCE and Tommy Trbojevic are fit - so Manly thanks.

Panthers over Bulldogs

This is in Penrith and I watch the Dogs 'play' first hand last Thursday... so enough said.

Sharks over Titans

Really like Cartwright at #6 but will go Cronulla because they were really really good last Sunday.

Cowboys over Raiders
I just don't know. I really don't. Guess it is in Townsville.

Tigers over Eels
Got burned really badly the last time these two played... Tigers please don't let me down again.

NRL Round 7 Tips from The Postman | 2018 Season

The Postman's Round 7 NRL Tips
2018 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - April 18 2017


4/8 two weeks in a row - now that's consistency.

The comp is only tough to tip if you ignore the Wests Tigers and Warriors like I have pretty much all year.

Good luck.


Tips for Round 7 2018

Roosters over Bulldogs
Surely Easts... but Canterbury just won in Townsville... I dunno, go Easts I guess. See instilling you with confidence already.

Dragons over Warriors

Can't rule out the Warriors at home but Saints haven't really given you a reason not to pick them yet. They snuffed out Cronulla's fightback pretty swiftly last week - a great sign if you go for the Dragons.

Storm over Broncos

Sticking with Melbourne - Brisbane win this and I might start taking them seriously though.

Rabbitohs over Raiders

Flip a coin... Souths playing well the last two weeks and Canberra playing well the last two weeks. Good to see on both counts.

Tigers over Knights

Finally picking the Tigers this year... we shall see.

Cowboys over Titans

Based on their record I'm foolishly picking the Cowboys yet again this year... if they lose this are they really just this bad?

Sea Eagles over Eels
You can't pick Parra... especially if you've done it way too many times this year already. Stick with Manly, let Parra win a game first before you waste another tip on them.

Panthers over Sharks
So many big outs for Cronulla... that said they are still a handy team on paper and are at home. But Penrith aren't travelling poorly so stick with the Panthers.

NRL Round 6 Tips from The Postman | 2018 Season

The Postman's Round 6 NRL Tips
2018 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - April 11 2017


We're back!

4/8 with a bullet in Round 5 - twice as good as last week!

I continue to wish you nothing but good luck with your tips... because the good luck certainly isn't with The Postman this season so far.


Tips for Round 6 2018

Roosters over Rabbitohs
Easts please.

Storm over Knights

Pretty confident the Storm bounce back... then again, this season hasn't played by the rules yet.

Dragons over Sharks

Cronulla... I want to pick you. But right now I can't. I won't... okay I might. But stick with Saints.

Warriors over Broncos

Again I lean towards Brisbane because I don't trust the Warriors... but the Warriors are 5-0 and at home. Let the disappointment commence for the first time this year.

Cowboys over Bulldogs

North Queensland are 1-4... but I shan't be picking Canterbury.

Raiders over Eels

Canberra were pretty good last week and Parra were joe average again. Just the kind of game Canberra drop and Parra rediscover some form... but Raiders it will be.

Panthers over Titans
Game is in Penrith - form says Penrith are going okay... Titans have been great the last two weeks, horrendous the week before that. Penrith thanks.

Sea Eagles over Tigers
Sorry Tiges... I may have picked the Warriors for the first time this year but I still can't break my duck for 2018 with picking the Tigers. Manly - esp if Tom Trbojevic returns.
