Round 24 Tips
2014 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - August 20, 2014
Quick quick tips for Round 24 - no time on our side with Thursday night footy back for the rest of the season.
The Postman's Late Mail is now - sadly - officially finished for 2014... it's out of my control, but better to be safe than sorry everyone. That's as much as I can say.
The NRL Tweet Player of the Year Voting Leaderboard is now up to date through Round 19 - the last public update until the end of Round 26.
|-| Bulldogs v Tigers - Bulldogs by 10 points.
Dogs score first and Tigers have issues.
|-| Eels v Sea Eagles - Sea Eagles by 7 points.
Hayne can win this... but Manly probably do.
|-| Broncos v Knights - Broncos by 4 points.
Brisbane lose this and they are likely toast... Knights more than capable.
|-| Rabbitohs v Cowboys - Rabbitohs by 6 points.
Rabbitohs go in as favourites but Cowboys will not go quietly.
|-| Warriors v Roosters - Roosters by 2 points (Friday CHANGE).
Warriors... as of Wednesday, that's how I was feeling. Friend and SBW are now potentially huge INs for Roosters - so now have changed again - Chooks it is.
|-| Sharks v Raiders - Raiders by 1 points (Thursday CHANGE).
Yikes... Cronulla may rally after this week's events... but Canberra are finally embracing some youth... changed to Canberra - if only because Cronulla's headspace cannot be good even if the 'named' play.
|-| Dragons v Titans - Dragons by 2 points.
Titans are out of the Top 8 race but if Saints lose on Sunday - they'll join them.
|-| Panthers v Storm - Storm by 4 points.
Sorry Panthers... I just can't do it. Melbourne please.
The Postman's Late Mail is now on hiatus for 2014... apologies but it is out of my control.
|Leaderboard after Round 19|
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.
Bulldogs by 10, Sea Eagles by 7, Broncos by 4, Rabbitohs by 6, Roosters by 2, Raiders by 1, Dragons by 2, Storm by 4.
