Tips for Round 16 2017

Bulldogs over Warriors
I just do not trust the Warriors - esp with Foran out. Dogs for me.

Titans over Tigers
The Titans can still salvage their season... well at least that's the only reason I can see to tip with any inkling in this one. Tigers do nothing for me but the Titans of late have been much the same. Last chance Titans - stand up J Hayne.

Panthers over Cowboys
No JT is reason enough for me to pot the Cowboys for the rest of the season. A spot in the Top 8 just opened up kids...

Raiders over Broncos
If Wayne Bennett wasn't likely to rest some Origin players - the Broncos would be a sexy outsiders pick here. Canberra I guess.

Roosters over Storm
Storm's superstar boy band is out so Chooks (even with Cordner out as well). Enjoy no-superstar Saturday Adelaide... geesh this is poor scheduling.

Dragons over Knights
De Belin is a big out but even as poor as they've been of late you must pick St George Illawarra at home v the Knights.

Sharks over Sea Eagles
Have to pick Cronulla at home. Manly have proven good enough this year to make me look foolish... again.

NRL Round 15 Tips from The Postman | 2017 Season

The Postman's Round 15 NRL Tips
2017 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - June 14, 2017


Yikes... 4/8 and I apologise.

Look once Cronk withdrew Cronulla was the smart pick so not gutted there... Titans were woeful and Canberra blew it - so that happens. Then on Monday the Dogs were goodish and the Saints played more like the team I think they are - so it all means we ended up with 4 wrong.

Just 4 games this weekend - so let's aim for at least 3 correct tips.

And for those playing at home... as much as having Slater and Thurston back makes QLD infinitely more dangerous... one has to believe NSW can ride the momentum of last game into just their second Origin series win since 2005.

Tips for Round 15 2017

Rabbitohs over Titans
After not bothering to turn up last week - this is exactly the kind of game the Gold Coast turn around and do turn up for... then making you regret picking a pretty ordinary South Sydney team. But given Souths are close to full strength and the Titans don't have Jarryd Hayne and evidently picked up more injuries last weekend - you kind of have to stay with the home team Bunnies. But I'll let you pick the Titans if you wish - they are better than they showed last weekend.

Storm over Cowboys
Flip a coin... Cowboys have lost less core pieces (not by much) than Melbourne but Melbourne seem to inherently know how to play at a level that suggests they'll compete even with no Smith, Cronk, Chambers, Slater or Glasby. If you take the Cowboys you are relying on Coote, Granville and Taumalolo to have a bigger impact than Harris, Munster, Bromwich and Finucane. This ain't cut and dried by any stretch but it is in Melbourne.

Sharks over Tigers
Sharks down on some Origin troops but the Tigers are down Woods and Tedesco - so you've gotta pick Cronulla at home.

Eels over Dragons
Giving Corey Norman the benefit of the doubt after a poor return last week... if Parra hold Saints up front (which I think they can do) they have slightly more talent out wide to take advantage. But this is also coin flip territory based on what both teams served up last weekend.
