#NRL 2014: Round 13 Tips Preview | #NRLManCby #NRLParNql

Round 13 Tips

2014 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - June 4, 2014


Not so perfect round!

But gee if we didn't have such misplaced faith in the Newcastle Knights (it's just a random observation but it seems like that Prelim Final loss has taxed the refuse to lose will of that roster) it should've been 6 from 6 in Round 12. Sorry Warriors... we didn't give you the respect your recent record deserved. The rest of you - we picked it like a dirty nose.

Again with time very tight at the moment, all you get this week is super quick tips. Better than nothing right?
ROUND 13 TIPS
Sea Eagles v Bulldogs - Sea Eagles by 4 points.
Brookie factor... and DCE being back gets the square. That said - CBY +4.5 is ridiculously generous and is my Special Fried Rice of the week - even though I'm tipping Manly to win the game.
Eels v Cowboys - Eels by 4 points.
Hayne is a genius... and I don't trust the Cowboys on the road even though JT is just as big a genius as JH.
Titans v Panthers - Titans by 6 points.
Gut feel... the Titans have some troops back and the Panthers scoring 30+ points a week just isn't normal service.
Dragons v Sharks - Dragons by 6 points.
St George Illawarra by default due to Cronulla's injury list... and why oh why is this being played in Wollongong and not at Kogarah???
Rabbitohs v Warriors - Rabbitohs by 4 points.
Produced arguably the most entertaining regular season game of 2013 - and here's hoping we get one just as good in Perth again.
Knights v Tigers - Knights by 2 points.
Yes... I'm picking the Knights AGAIN! Yes... I am an idiot.
Storm v Roosters - Roosters by 10 points.
Melbourne scoring more than 2 tries without Cronk or Slater is the issue here... Roosters on the road please.
Raiders v Broncos - Raiders by 2 points.
This game should be played at 3pm NOT 7pm - after all it is a PUBLIC HOLIDAY Monday and there should be a game in Sydney as well - but the Tedesco news might just wake Canberra up... heck nothing else has.

The Postman's Late Mail is in flux... we apologise but if it can be posted before Friday - it will.

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.
