Round 10... What idiot picks the Knights? 

2015 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - May 15, 2015

Who picks the Knights?

At Brookie!

... this idiot.

Don't get me wrong - being 5/5 through Saturday night was akin to getting the news Charlize Theron was single (she still might be - anyone?) - but to go into the weekend (let alone Sunday) thinking the Knights had a chance (I knew Mullen was unlikely) against Manly at Brookie was just foolish.

Seeing the score was akin to the beating the Black Knight... painful but not something you can't rebound from.

So I didn't watch the game and I'm glad I didn't but I also missed DCE's performance... so there's that downside. 

The aim is to still end up around the 63% mark and 7/8 helped big time - we're back at nearly 56% after dropping dangerously close to the 50% mark a few weeks back.

Game of Round 10 is FNF in Townsville - Cows v Broncs.
Broncos deserve respect as table toppers after 9 Rounds but the Cows haven't lost since March and have Johnathan Thurston. But something is nagging at me that the Broncos win this... let's see where the tips end up come 7:45pm tonight but at the moment - sticking with home team.

Cowboys over Broncos - JT v BH decides this but Brisbane pack wins battle the Hunt's job is infinitely easier.
Roosters over Bulldogs - Should be a genuine NSW selection-off between the halves but Daley says it isn't.
Eels over Warriors - Warriors barely beat Sharks away from home, Eels bounce back here even without Sandow.
Titans over Sharks - Just see more points in Titans... but no certainties at all, Fifita is good enough to carry Sharks himself.
Storm over Souths - Enjoy this contest - even not at full strength Bunnies are good enough to win but have to pick Melbourne at home.
Raiders over Dragons - Really should respect Dragons more but Raiders giving you every reason to tip them with the attacking footy they are playing the last month.
Tigers over Knights - Classic game the Knights win after a run of poor form... but I've been burnt tipping them during this poor run... so Tigers get the cash because of Farah and Tedesco.
Manly over Panthers - Need to see that Penrith team back at fullish strength to be confident - plus DCE is playing superbly right now. Panthers not friendless but it is at Brookie.

Last week 7/8: Got everyone bar those KNIGHTS!

2015 SEASON TIPS: 40/72 at 55.6%
Round by Round: 5/8 | 5/8 | 6/8 | 4/8 | 5/8 | 3/8 | 1/8 | 4/8 | 7/8
