#NRL 2014: Round 5 Tips

Round 5 Tips 

2014 National Rugby League Premiership

By W D Nicolson - April 3, 2014


The Alex McKinnon injury remains at the forefront of my mind, so again, just tips for Round 5.

Thus no Late Mail this week but it will return for Round 6 - as will the NRL Injured List next Tuesday on www.wdnicolson.com.

My thoughts and prayers remain with Alex and his family.

Round 4 Tipping was below average - going 3/8 to drag my record to 14/32 for the season... and in desperate need for a 6 or 7 week to get back to respectability. Trust St George Illawarra to finally lose when I finally decide to pick them last weekend... never again!
ROUND 5 TIPS
All tips are subject to last minute changes, Game Odds/FootyTab are from Wednesday night and do not update thereafter. Times listed are stadium location LOCAL time.
Quick Hit Rd5 Thoughts:
Dogs not without hope on Friday but I do expect the Roosters to win by 10+ (even though I haven't tipped that... go figure) ... Broncos should beat Parra unless they forget how to tackle ... Sharks or Warriors - flip a coin and go for the team with two wins in a row ... Panthers at home over Raiders please ... Rabbitohs remembered the Sutton-Reynolds combo actually goes well so they should edge out Saints ... Melbourne by quite a few over the overachieving Titans ... Manly over the Tigers at Leichhardt because they have DCE and Foran and Wests don't ... and finally, Cowboys MAYBE over Knights - only because this is in Cowboyland - Nth Qld went into 2012-13 habits in attack last week.
