NRL 2011 - Round 4 NRL Preview Tips Teams Predictions Late Mail Fantasy News Odds

THE BULLDOGS STAND ALONE... as two legends move on.
Two big stories in Rugby League this week with Wayne Bennett announcing he will not coach the Dragons in 2012 and Darren Lockyer set to retire at the end of 2011... as a result the poor old Bulldogs at 3-0 are getting no love whatsoever.

Welcome to Season 2011... after an off-season that often feels longer (or shorter - depends if you like cricket or not) than it is - the footy is back. Here on we've got all the Tuesday Team News, Wednesday Previews and Friday Late Mail that will keep your Tipping and Fantasy habit well fed. This preview integrates our NRL Injured List - which if you haven't bookmarked by now - I suggest you do so.
This year not only do you get The NRL Tweet's Tips each week but the whole NOT The Footy Show team will have their picks listed by Thursday so you can back a smoky or a favourite by seeing who we all picked (or didn't pick).

Truthfully there is no perfect formula but here's a vital tip to help you cope with the copious amounts of NRL Tipping Comp's you are already in - PICK ON TUESDAY and enter your tips into all the sites no later than Wednesday. The reason for this is you can A. There is nothing worse than trying to cram your picks in late on a Friday afternoon and B. If you pick on Tuesday you can always change your mind and you would have given the Round some thought before Friday 7:29pm.

NRL 2011 - Round 4 NRL Teams 29/03/2011

]-[ NRL 2011 ]-[Round 4 NRL Teams

As released on Tuesday March 29, Each NRL Team for Round 4 will be listed below.


@ Suncorp Friday Night
BRI: Beale, Copley, Reed, Hodges, Yow Yeh, Lockyer (c), Wallace, Thaiday, McCullough, Hannant, Glenn, Gillett, Parker. Bench: Hunt, Te'o, McGuire, Tronc.
[Team Changes - Justin Hodges is no certainty despite claiming he would lineup against the Panthers on Friday Night. He is battling a recurring hamstring injury. Ben Hannant made it through Round 3 without an issue (calf) and will start. Dale Copley comes onto the wing for Gerard Beale who shifts to fullback to cover Josh Hoffman who is out for a week or two with a corked shin. ]
PEN: Coote, M Gordon, Jennings, Tighe, Simmons, Burns, Kingston, Grant, Iosefa, Civoniceva (c), Waterhouse, Plum, Lewis. Bench: McKendry, Bell, Purtell, Tahu, Seluini.
[Team Changes - With Luke Walsh out indefinitely with a shoulder injury, Matt Elliott has moved hooker Kevin Kingston to halfback and starts Masada Iosefa at hooker. Nafe Seluini comes onto the bench and Brad Tighe has pushed Timana Tahu to the bench. Luke Lewis goes back to lock and Travis Burns starts at five-eighth after recovering from a hamstring strain. ]

@ Blue Tongue Friday Night
SOU: Wesser, Merritt, Inglis, Farrell, Talanoa, Sutton, Sandow, Asotasi (c), Luke, Stuart, S Burgess, Taylor, Tyrrell. Bench: Ross, McPherson, Crocker, McQueen.
[Team Changes - One big change for the Bunnies with the suspended Eddy Pettybourne (3 weeks for a dangerous throw) replaced by Sam Burgess who returns from a shoulder injury he aggravated in Roudn 1. There is some doubt on Rhys Wesser's hamstring and a decision on his place in the side will be made later in the week. - UPDATE Wednesday 30/3 - Wesser and Burgess are out and Nathan Peats and Kane Morgan will debut. Merritt to fullback, Morgan on to the wing, Michael Crocker will start and Peats comes on to the bench. ]
MAN: B Stewart, Robertson, Lyon (c), Hopoate, D Williams, K Foran, Cherry-Evans, King (c), Ballin, Kite, Watmough, Galuvao, G Stewart. Bench: Seu Seu, Buhrer, Rose, Mauro, Robinson.
[Team Changes - Jamie Lyon has been named to return from a hamstring tear earlier than expected and takes Michael Oldfield's place in the team - although Oldfield may be on standby for Lyon. There is no Tony Williams after he was a late withdrawal from the Newcastle game with an ankle injury. David Williams will play despite a knee complaint. Tim Robinson and Vic Mauro will fight it out for the final bench spot. ]

AFL 2011 - HOW GOODES IS THIS SWANS BLOG: 'Like Kissing Your Sister' - Round 1 Review

Check it out for a great Podcast, SuperCoach advice and weekly blogs for every AFL Team during 2011.

AFL ROUND 1 - 2011
SWANS 11.18.84
DEMONS 11.18.84

Like kissing your sister...

You've heard the saying; a draw is like kissing your sister.

But for the Sydney Swans their draw with the Melbourne Demons must've felt more like kissing your mother in law... something you really don't enjoy but realise that civility is better than the alternative.

The Swans will be feeling like that today in the wake of their 84-all draw, because as frustrated as they may be with only 2 points - the alternative of 0 points would have been much worse.
