NRL Round 12 Tips from The Postman | 2017 Season

The Postman's Round 12 NRL Tips
2017 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - May 24, 2017


BOOM!

6/8 and if we didn't have way too much respect for Kieran Foran's impact on a Warriors team that doesn't want to tackle - we would've gone with the Dragons... but clearly didn't come to our senses quick enough. The Titans turned it up v Manly - who were very good sans Tom Trbojevic - but we got the rest and a 6/8 is a nice upgrade on our stock standard 5/8.

Just the 4 NRL games this weekend with Origin 1 on Wednesday week.

NOT The Footy Show did a Podcast about their reaction to the Game 1 Teams - see below.

Tips for Round 12 2017

Rabbitohs over Eels
Can I go a draw? Both teams are average... Eels don't have Corey Norman... Souths badly miss Greg Inglis in attack... come to think of it - Souths it is. Actually it's only Wednesday and the game is Friday - so I might change here... stay tuned.

Warriors over Broncos
Hating myself right now for giving the Warriors yet another chance to disappoint me. So pick Brisbane and ignore me on this tip this week... but surely without Milford, Gillett, Boyd, McCullough, Oates, Thaiday and McGuire (and maybe Roberts - injury) the Warriors can't not win?

Sharks over Bulldogs
Dogs are without Jackson and Brett Morris, Sharks won't have Fifita, Graham and Maloney. Big chance for Canterbury if they fight like they did in the 2nd Half last week but gotta stick with Cronulla at home.

Raiders over Roosters
Big big outs for Easts and only Papalii misses for the home-town Raiders. Pick Canberra.

The Postman's State of Origin Game 1 Tip will be on next week's NOT The Footy Show Podcast.

This Podcast is full of reaction to the Origin Teams for May 31 in Brisbane....
  • Billy's not busted but he's not in the team... we're still stunned.
  • If JT proves his fitness does Milford get a run anyway?
  • Evidently Kangaroos jerseys don't guarantee a thing... ask Holmes and Merrin.
  • NSW have punted Farah... but is Peats up for the job? Was Wallace before he got hurt?
  • NSW's Hall of Fame picks... who would be next?
  • We also discuss if there's any merit to the contract renegotiation efforts from Cody Walker and Nathan Ross... there isn't.
  • Tease the upcoming '8 Wonders of the Rugby League World' Series here on the show.
  • And Coxsmith brings us home with some final thoughts on Mitchell Moses Parramatta debut.
So join us for Episode 168 - it doesn't suck.

NRL Round 11 Tips from The Postman | 2017 Season

The Postman's Round 11 NRL Tips
2017 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - May 17, 2017


Hey guess what... we tipped 5/8 again last Round!

No this is not just a copy paste from last week... thanks to the Dogs, Storm and Raiders sucking deluxe - we raise the bat at a 5/8 yet again.

And to prove that your Local Postman is a friend to all - it turns out I'd picked the Cowboys 2 weeks back before the rep round (and JT getting injured) on NRL.com (where I lodge my tips) then evidently failed to change my tip to the Dogs last week before kickoff... even though in the pages below I told you well... 'go the home team even with Reynolds out'... but given I'm all about being fair to all with my mail - I stand by my public Dogs pick in my season winning percentage ratio.

Which funnily enough lands very close to a 5/8 success rate after 10 Rounds... (well 61.3% v 62.5%).

Tips for Round 11 2017

Sharks over Cowboys
Inspired effort from North Queensland last week but I'll stick with Cronulla at home.

Warriors over Dragons
Forgive me now tipsters... you know I don't want to tip Saints without a genuine first grade spine... but having to tip the Warriors is at least somewhat digestible when they have Kieran Foran and are at home... right?

Broncos over Tigers
Next... Brisbane please.

Titans over Sea Eagles
Manly don't have Tom Trbojevic for like a month or two now and we both know he's gigantic to their attacking threat level... sure the Titans picked up another 5 injuries last week but as long as Hayne plays - I'm going with the Goldie Coasters.

Raiders over Eels
Corey Norman suits up for this one and you almost have to pick Parra given how poor Canberra have been the past few weeks... but Mitchell Moses is no Corey Norman kids. Go the Raiders.

Panthers over Knights
Penrith have to keep winning games they should win - this qualifies big time despite Newcastle breaking through last week at home v Canberra.

Roosters over Bulldogs
Knowing the Bulldogs they'll find a way to stick with the Roosters for a while here... but if the Chooks play attacking footy - Canterbury won't start doing so themselves til they are 20 points behind.

Storm over Rabbitohs
Melbourne please and thank you.
