#NRL 2014: Round 4 Tips

Round 4 Tips 

2014 National Rugby League Premiership

By W D Nicolson - March 27, 2014


This week all that I am publishing are my Round 4 Tips - as in the wake of the Alex McKinnon injury I have lost my appetite for Rugby League right now... all I care about is hearing positive reports on his recovery.
So no Late Mail and no other posts will be on www.wdnicolson.com this week.

These may return next week but all my thoughts and prayers are with Alex and his family.


Voting in the @NRLTweet Player of the Year Award will continue on Twitter via #NRLTweetPOTY - track the # or @NRLTweet for the latest votes.

Round 3 Tipping was literally average - going 4/8 to drag my record to 11/24 for the season...

The 'Special Fried Rice' picks have returned but given it is me v me, every week - I'll just be listing my 'SFR' of the week with the FootyTab Starts as the variation aspect to keep things interesting vs just saying 'this team will win this week - guaranteed'.


HEADS UP: We did our 150th NRL Podcast this week - check out Episode 150 of NOT The Footy Show

Round 2 Tipping didn't suck - 5/8 is more than acceptable, so let's see what we can do in Round 3... to the Tips!

Friday at ANZ 8:00pm
Tigers $5.00 v $1.18 Rabbitohs
FOOTYTABWST +14.5 Teams Analysed on our NRL Injured List
@NRLTweet's PREDICTION:
Sure the Tigers put up 40pts last weekend and the Rabbitohs fired blanks against Manly... but this fixture has been the playground for Greg Inglis of late - so sticking with the Bunnies. Rabbitohs by 16 points.

LATEST OF LATE MAIL from The Postman:
WST - The Tigers should get Fulton back, with Paterson perhaps keeping his bench spot ahead of Seumanufagai or Sue.
SOU - Tom Burgess... back sooner than expected? Will have a better idea later this week and the status of McQueen's ankle as well... but otherwise Sutton to five-eighth if Walker can't go due to an ankle. Sounds like McQueen and Walker will miss, so Sutton to 6, Lowe to lock and Turner and maybe Nathaniel Neale onto the bench.
