2015 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - March 9, 2015
|Parra Stadium almost full - giddy up!|
The Postman started with 5 tips out of 8 picks... solid enough to be respectable and gladly, I'm not sub-.500 after the opening weekend.
Some very quick hit thoughts on your team in Round 1 below.
RECAP ROUND 1 TIPS
Season 5/8 @ 62.5%
1/1 | Souths over Brisbane
Spot on... was fairly confident but Souths had this in hand early. Broncos had one player (Matt Gillett) look likely... and they need 5 or 6 to be every week to be a threat this season.
1/2 | Manly over Parramatta
Wrongo... badly wrong. Parra put the foot down and Manly had no reply. Still it is just one game...
2/3 | Newcastle over Warriors
Only game of weekend I didn't see - caught some highlights but they never tell the story.
2/4 | Titans over Tigers
Should be 3/4 given Titans had all the good chances to win the game... then let the Tigers steal it. Some okay signs for both teams, but that said - neither look overly strong.
2/5 | Cowboys over Roosters
5 minutes in and I felt sick about picking the Cows... Roosters superior in every way in Townsville. Cowboys better hope that was opening Round rust... they looked joe average in comparison. RTS at fullback = gravy.
3/6 | Panthers over Bulldogs
Looked like a smart pick early 2nd half... then the Bulldogs started playing footy and what do you know... they came back. Let your team play some footy Des - please! James Segeyaro remains the best hooker you don't mention enough.
4/7 | Raiders over Sharks
5/8 | Storm over Dragons
Snorefest... but Craig Bellamy would love that performance by Melbourne. Simply put - did what they had to do beat a Dragons side that had Benji Marshall trying his guts out and not nearly being enough for them to worry the scorers more than once. Long season ahead Saints fans.
