#NRL 2014: Round 12 Tips Preview | #NRLPenPar #NRLBriMan

Round 12 Tips 

2014 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - May 30, 2014


PERFECT ROUND!

Yep, Round 11 was super easy for the Tipsters... with all 5 favourites getting the job done. So really there's nothing to see here - yes, 5 from 5 is nice and all, but everyone did that right?

Due to Origin being a mega time consuming beast this week - all you get this week is super quick tips. 
ROUND 12 TIPS
Panthers v Eels - Penrith by 6 points.
No Hayne means you must take Panthers.
Roosters v Raiders - Roosters by 4 points.
Let's see how the Raiders and Roosters back up from good wins... go home team.
Cowboys v Storm - Cowboys by 12 points.
Cowboys want to be taken serious as a contender - you must crush Big 3-less Storm at home.
Warriors v Knights - Knights by 4 points.
Warriors still haven't turned the corner for mine, this has Newcastle-ambush written all over it.
Broncos v Sea Eagles - Broncos by 2 points.
DCE and Watmough play I might change this tip... right now I lean Broncos at home.
Rabbitohs v Dragons - Rabbitohs by 8 points.
Danger game for Souths after ordinary showing against Sharks... Benji's success depends on Dragons' forwards standing up.

The Postman's Late Mail will return in Round 13 - sorry but Origin has been a beast this week and simply put - there's been no time to get it collated.

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'.

*www.wdnicolson.com makes no guarantees of decent picks every week - but we hope they are.

#NRL 2014: Round 11 Tips Preview and The Postman's Late Mail | #NRLCbySyd #NRLWstBri

Round 11 Tips and Late Mail 

2014 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - May 21, 2014


Well after a glorious run of tipping form... Round 10 was only good for 5/8 - which would be cause for celebration if it was Round 3 or 4 but now it's just Joe Average. 

Still www.wdnicolson.com's NRL Tips* are below but in basic form this week with no Late Mail unless time allows on Thursday. 

Apologies but Origin is bearing down on us and time is seriously of the vanilla essence.

The Postman's Late Mail has been updated for Round 11!

Remember our Game Previews are now purely the essentials in 2014 - I'll try to write very little fluff and you'll simply (entertainingly) get my read on each game and of course the Late Mail.

HEADS UP: We will have a new episode of NOT The Footy Show going up before Origin 1 but it is likely going to be a recording of Waz on Matt's 101.5FM Sportsfever show in QLD this Thursday morning. But it may - may - include a late cameo from DC Chapman so keep hoping and keep an eye on your iTunes Podcast folders for Episode 151 in the future. WE HOPE!

*www.wdnicolson.com makes no guarantees of decent picks every week - but we hope they are.

Round 9 Tipping was a meh at 5/8 - So let's get to the Tips!
ROUND 11 TIPS and LATE MAIL
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.

FOOTYTABSYD +1.5 Teams Analysed on our NRL Injured List
@NRLTweet's PREDICTION:
No halves for the Dogs and the Roosters have both of them plus everyone bar Jennings and Tupou. The Chooks match Dogs up front and they win well. Roosters by 8 points.

LATEST OF LATE MAIL from The Postman:
HOME - Bulldogs likely 1-17.
AWAY - Roosters probably 1-17 but is there a chance we see Tautau Moga on the wing with Samisoni Langi either to the bench or missing out entirely?
