2014 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - June 11, 2014
Sure the Raiders and Knights were playing at home (and so were the rather average looking Titans) but that's no excuse kids... stay in school and don't tip them ever again.
To Round 14 and there's only 5 games on the schedule... and sorry, still no Late Mail.
Rabbitohs v Tigers - Rabbitohs by 8 points.
No Farah, no Woods, no Fulton for the Tigers... Souths are only missing McQueen and Te'o (okay and GI) - Bunnies please.
Panthers v Dragons - Panthers by 6 points.
Panthers have actually looked good the past two weeks in creating points... I had my doubts after they beat Parra but they gave the Titans a lot of trouble eventually and the Titans can defend. Dragons not without hope but Penrith should win.
Roosters v Knights - Roosters by 6 points.
Burnt too many times by the Knights to even consider them... so you know they'll win this week. But Roosters get my tip regardless.
Bulldogs v Eels - Bulldogs by 2 points.
Parra look like they have more points in them - even without Hayne - but the Dogs will give them nothing in the middle... and I trust their middle more than I trust Sandow and Norman. So Dogs like 18-16 or something.
Titans v Storm - Titans by 4 points.
There's been some dud MNF games this year... but seriously this could be up there with the duddliest... Titans at home... yeah that bit us last week but look at that Storm team. Titans... surely?
The Postman's Late Mail is in flux... we apologise but when he can find the time to dig some up before everyone else does it on Thursday he'll bring it back.

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.
Rabbitohs by 8, Panthers by 6, Roosters by 6, Bulldogs by 2, Titans by 4.
