Round 15... Non-sensical.

2015 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - June 19, 2015

We love this... so it's staying as our tipping mascot for the rest of 2015

Who picked the Tigers last week? 

If you did - brave brave soul... and a soul who tipped at least one better than me in the shortened Round 14. I'm still off the Tigers but that one hurt given I wrote this last week:

If Reynolds actually plays the Bunnies win by 40, otherwise only by 10-18. I'm officially off the Tigers this year - they stink at the moment.


Anyhoo... pick Manly tonight if you know what's good for you.

Game of Round 15 is Sunday arvo in Melbourne - Storm v Broncos.

No Slater or Cronk but Melbourne played pretty well in their loss to Parra and Smith is a great backerupperer from Origin - Broncos are going very well atop the ladder but something tells me they won't have their full complement from Origin and Bellamy will have his team primed for an upset.

Manly over Tigers - DCE and Foran v Brooks and Moses... and no Farah. Back Manly's pack to do enough here at Brookie.
Raiders over Cowboys - JT plays and I change my tip tmw... he's the difference here if he plays. But given I don't think he does = Canberra.
Titans over Warriors - Placed way too much faith in the Warriors recently... so now that I've placed said faith in the Titans - the Warriors are specials.
Bulldogs over Panthers - Want to pick Panthers given I think they are a better footy team than they've shown this year but no Moylan is a real concern... and the Dogs have played a good style of footy the last couple of weeks.
Sharks over Knights - Flipped a coin... it didn't land on either side so I'm backing Fifita to have a big game and be the difference in Newcastle - Knights at home is always a smarter pick but they aren't using their outside backs nearly enough for my liking to date.
Storm over Broncos - Smith leads Melbourne to a win here.
Roosters over Dragons - You know I've sworn to not pick the Dragons in one game in 2015... so this has to be my answer!

PS. Got QLD wrong in Game 2.. and cheering that I did! GO NSW! 

Last week 1/4: Got Titans... yikes
