#NRL Round 25 Tips from The Postman | #NRLBroncosEels #NRLRaidersKnights

The Postman's Round 25 NRL Tips
2017 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - August 23 2017


Round 24 started so well... 6 from 6 and flying... then Penrith made the bookies look stupid beating Canberra in Canberra, then the Bulldogs ripped Manly to shreds.

So 6 from 8... you've gotta take that - anyone who got Penrith picked up a valuable point because next to no one would've tipped Canterbury.

Just over 65% for the year - not quite the 70% of last season but you can't complain with 65% after 176 games.

Tips for Round 25 2017

Broncos over Eels
Manu Ma'u suspended and Bevan French hurt = Brisbane continue their impressive run of form since Parra beat them a few weeks back. Brisbane secure their Top 4 spot (and maybe 2nd outright) here and leave Parra in the elimination section of the Finals.

Raiders over Knights
Canberra can still play Finals... they have made things incredibly difficult for themselves but if they win and win big - they could find themselves with a simple equation of beating Melbourne in Melbourne in Round 26 and they'll be playing Finals. Simple.......

Cowboys over Tigers
I just don't trust the Tigers at all... Cowboys win this and they get a Top 8 spot... they lose and I think they'll get replaced in two weeks time. 

Titans over Bulldogs
This might actually be a good game to watch... the Titans will play a care free style now their coach is gone (rightly or wrongly) and the Dogs just woke up from a year-long slumber. Titans at home I guess.

Storm over Rabbitohs
Storm. Move along.

Sharks over Roosters
Cronulla win when they play Easts of late... so I'll stick with the form-guide.

Sea Eagles over Warriors
Last week I wrote this:
Manly. That is all. They secure their Top 8 spot with a win... surely they don't lose to Canterbury... sub in the Warriors to that sentence. Surely they don't lose a second gimme game???

Panthers over Dragons
Moylan out... that hurts Penrith. Saints weren't bad in Brisbane but you pick Penrith here unless you are a Red V devotee.

NRL Round 24 Tips from The Postman | 2017 Season

The Postman's Round 24 NRL Tips
2017 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - August 16 2017


5 from 8... acceptable given the upsets of the round. I mean who picks Newcastle and the Tigers last weekend?

Cronulla got well and truly out-played though... Brisbane were impressive.

Good luck if you are in contention for your tipping comp kids. Go an upset or two if you are - live a little.

Tips for Round 24 2017

Eels over Titans
Surely the Eels don't blow a second gimme game in a row...

Rabbitohs over Warriors
Seriously who knows when it pits two ordinary teams against each other so late in the season... Souths I guess.

Broncos over Dragons
Although Brisbane were great last week - the Dragons got some confidence back but I'm not convinced they'll beat the Broncos at Suncorp.

Storm over Knights
Yes Newcastle have won 3 in a row but Melbourne is your only pick here... they've won 17 of 21.

Roosters over Tigers
Could be an entertaining one - Roosters should win and eventually win well I think.

Sharks over Cowboys
Poor Cowboys... they've needed one win to pretty much secure their Top 8 spot 3 weeks ago... they haven't got it yet. And I don't think they'll get it this Saturday night either.

Raiders over Panthers
Toss a coin... Canberra are at home. That's not enough to pick them - so pick Penrith if you want.

Sea Eagles over Bulldogs
Manly. That is all. They secure their Top 8 spot with a win... surely they don't lose to Canterbury.

NRL Round 23 Tips from The Postman | 2017 Season

The Postman's Round 23 NRL Tips
2017 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - August 18 2017


Eeeeeeeeek.... 4/8 and we were lucky to be that good.

Missed on Saints (who butchered that game v Souths), Warriors (I trusted neither them nor Newcastle so I can live with it), Sharks (Canberra were outstanding) and Easts (Manly found a way as Easts blew a 14 point lead).

But the good news is Parra, Melbourne, Brisbane and Penrith looked after us.

Hurts the overall percentage but can't really complain too much

Tips for Round 23 2017

Rabbitohs over Bulldogs
Does anyone care? I don't. Both teams are at 'home'... so go with the team that won most recently. But good luck in being confident in either team.

Eels over Knights
Parra should win even if they are massively over-rated at the moment. Newcastle might give them a little bit of a fright but can't see them winning.

Sharks over Broncos
My upset of the Round - Sharks got embarrassed by Canberra, Broncos embarrassed the Titans - danger sign for the Broncos. Go Cronulla if you want to take an upset this weekend but I don't really view as an upset to be honest.

Dragons over Titans
Surely the Dragons don't blow another 'gimme' when they can't afford to... part of me wants to pick the Gold Coast for the bounce back factor... and I might just do that come the weekend. But for your tips - go Saints. 

Storm over Roosters
Sure Melbourne Roosters have some injuries but they aren't going to roll over here. Danger game for Melbourne - this won't be a cake-walk.

Panthers over Cowboys
Cracking matchup - Penrith at home is enough for me to tip them though.

Raiders over Warriors
Canberra will know by the time they play if they are closer or further away from that 8th spot with Saints and Penrith playing earlier in the weekend. Either way - they have to win this game but if one of those two teams lose (or if both do) they could beat the Warriors by 50.

Sea Eagles over Tigers
Had Manly lost to the Roosters then Wests would be a serious chance - but Manly all but secure their Finals spot if they win this and they should.
