#NRL Round 9 Tips from The Postman | #NRLBroncosPanthers #NRLSouthsManly

The Postman's Round 9 NRL Tips
2017 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - April 27, 2017


Hello 5/8 our old friend!

Considering that Manly and the Gold Coast pulled off last few minutes victories - 5/8 could've easily been a 7/8 in Round 8... but as much as you may have wanted to tip the Tigers (who also won late) - the Bulldogs were going just average enough (3 straight wins) to not seriously consider the Tigers - even though the Bulldogs are no world beaters this season.

Anyhoo - onto Round 9 with an almost 61% success rate and the bad news is it's a cavalcade of tough games to pick this weekend. Apologies the tips only drop at lunchtime Thursday but the short short short break between gamedays (with ANZAC Day Tuesday) - means The Postman has only just started to enter his tips for this week, let alone think of good reasons why you should tip along with him.

🚨 Podcast Alert: A fairly prophetic NOT The Footy Show Podcast went out on Monday this week - with predicted signings Ben Matulino and Josh Reynolds taking up a lot of the Tigers cap space...

Tips for Round 9 2017

Broncos over Panthers
Really really really really want to pick Penrith here - they match up great with Brisbane and there's no Ben Hunt and Bryce Cartwright has had a chance to get the cobwebs out. In fact, by 7:40pm tonight there's a good chance your local Postman has changed his mind... but if you're not deranged and want to tip well this weekend - pick Brisbane as he has... at this point.

Rabbitohs over Sea Eagles
I've tipped a game involving Manly correct ONCE this year... and that was Melbourne at Brookvale. The other 7 games - I've got it totally wrong. Watch Manly make that 1 from 8 for me as I tip Souths based on the return of Adam Reynolds... and the fact Souths look to be building towards a good win of late... and Manly can't get that lucky two weeks in a row can they?

Eels over Cowboys
This tip totally rests on the fitness of Johnathan Thurston. If JT misses, stick with Parra on the road. If JT plays - change your tip to the Cowboys. You've been warned.

Titans over Knights
Jarryd Hayne to have an absolute field day as the Gold Coast start to remember they are a very good team who are finally getting most of their best players back from injury - Titans by 20.

Raiders over Bulldogs
Canberra have thrown more than a couple of games away this year - don't see that happening Saturday night. The Josh Reynolds news could be great for the Dogs... or he could find himself on the bench within a few weeks... don't forget that Des Hasler loves to get ahead of the game people.

Sharks over Tigers
Cronulla bounce back from getting pantsed by the Titans at home - win this well over the Tigers even though it is at Leichhardt.

Roosters over Warriors
Warriors are a steelier team with Foran in it - I can't doubt that after watching them stick with Melbourne on Tuesday - but their forwards and outside backs are inferior going into this one. Chooks thank you.

Storm over Dragons
Storm by 20. Saints won't win this without Widdop.

NRL Round 8 Tips from The Postman | 2017 Season

The Postman's Round 8 NRL Tips
2017 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - April 19, 2017


Boom! Back in business with 7/8 and a missed perfect round courtesy of having too much faith in the Panthers against the Premiers... but after a 2/8 the week before - going 9 from 16 across two weeks makes things feel a little better doesn't it?

Round 8 is a looooooong one, with Friday night footy bookended by two ANZAC Day games on Tuesday. So there is a lot of time to change tips across the weekend everyone.

🚨 Podcast Alert: Another fresh new NOT The Footy Show Podcast for your consumption this week.


🎙 Episode 164: Cronulla vs The World - Released 18/4/17
Tips for Round 8 2017

Raiders over Sea Eagles
Canberra should win and win well. Manly couldn't stop Melbourne on the edges last week and that is where Canberra score their points.

Broncos over Rabbitohs
Not confident at all here... in fact I smell an upset brewing. Whether or not I back my gut and change my tip is another matter entirely - stick with Brisbane for now...

Eels over Panthers
Sure the Panthers have to come good you say...? Well I've given them too many chances to do just that with my tips and given this is not in Penrith (though it is at neutral ANZ) - I'll pick Parra for the time being. If Penrith do include Bryce Cartwright I probably change though - he's that important to them.

Cowboys over Knights
My rule of not picking Newcastle away from home is tested by North Queensland's under-strength-age but you've gotta stay the course and pick against Newcastle. Go Cowboys.

Sharks over Titans
Poor Titans - they could sneak this one away from Shark Park but your tipping livelihood says you have to pick the Premiers at home on a Saturday night. Cronulla please. Titans drop to 1-7 but remember Hayne is back...

Bulldogs over Tigers
Dogs aren't going as well as their recent 3 game winning streak suggests and the Tigers should have a 2 game winning streak had they not blown a 10 point lead on Easter Monday. Tigers have points in them sure and probably make me look bad - but Dogs are the smarter pick here and we need to keep making those picks to be competitive in a month or two.

Roosters over Dragons
Burst that bubble Easts. Burst it big time.

Storm over Warriors
Melbourne at home in a big game please.
