NRL, AFL & SUPER 14 TIPS April 3-6 2009

This is an archived story - so check the main page - for the current round of tipping for NRL, AFL and Super 14. The site is also updated with opinion, news and features regularly. NRL, AFL & SUPER 14 TIPS April 3-6 2009 Not going terrible, not going great... story of the tipping season so far for me. Here are my tips for NRL Round 4 Broncos by 4, Roosters by 1, Tigers by 12, Storm by 22, Warriors by 4, Sharks by 2, Knights by 2 & Raiders by 10. Upsets? Well I've gone for a few, Roosters tonight - just got a feeling I can't shake and they are at home ... Sharks over Bulldogs - Brett Seymour running the show with a lot to prove just has me on the Sharks esp now Idris is out for the Dogs and Millard is his replacement ... and Knights to make Manly 0-4 to start the season - no Brett Stewart means I just can't see the Sea Eagles breaking out offensively. NRL TIPPING YEAR TO DATE: 14 from 24 @ 58% Here are my tips for AFL Round 2 Saints by 16, Cats by 37, Magpies by 48, Lions by 4, Hawks by 26, Dockers by 8, Bulldogs by 19 & Eagles by 8. Upsets? Really like the Saints tonight with Lenny Hayes back - but I think I tipped with certainty at Port Adelaide last year and they got towelled so go Adelaide people ... Lions to give Carlton a reality check in a thriller ... Dockers to travel well for once and beat Essendon ... and the West Coast didn't lead the Lions due to a fluke - they have some talent and at home with Port just so-so in Round 1 - has me on the Eagles. AFL TIPPING YEAR TO DATE: 5 from 8 @ 63% Here are my tips for Super 14 Round 8: Bulls by 6, Force by 8, Chiefs by 7, Waratahs by 4, Brumbies by 6 & Sharks by 10. Upsets? Think the Bulls will bounce back and grind out a win over the McCaw-less Crusaders tonight ... and although I've tipped the Waratahs it is with no confidence at all and the Stormers are better than the 2-4 team the ladder says they are. SUPER 14 TIPPING YEAR TO DATE: 25 from 45 @ 56%
