NRL Round 8 Tips from The Postman | 2017 Season

The Postman's Round 8 NRL Tips
2017 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - April 19, 2017


Boom! Back in business with 7/8 and a missed perfect round courtesy of having too much faith in the Panthers against the Premiers... but after a 2/8 the week before - going 9 from 16 across two weeks makes things feel a little better doesn't it?

Round 8 is a looooooong one, with Friday night footy bookended by two ANZAC Day games on Tuesday. So there is a lot of time to change tips across the weekend everyone.

🚨 Podcast Alert: Another fresh new NOT The Footy Show Podcast for your consumption this week.


🎙 Episode 164: Cronulla vs The World - Released 18/4/17
Tips for Round 8 2017

Raiders over Sea Eagles
Canberra should win and win well. Manly couldn't stop Melbourne on the edges last week and that is where Canberra score their points.

Broncos over Rabbitohs
Not confident at all here... in fact I smell an upset brewing. Whether or not I back my gut and change my tip is another matter entirely - stick with Brisbane for now...

Eels over Panthers
Sure the Panthers have to come good you say...? Well I've given them too many chances to do just that with my tips and given this is not in Penrith (though it is at neutral ANZ) - I'll pick Parra for the time being. If Penrith do include Bryce Cartwright I probably change though - he's that important to them.

Cowboys over Knights
My rule of not picking Newcastle away from home is tested by North Queensland's under-strength-age but you've gotta stay the course and pick against Newcastle. Go Cowboys.

Sharks over Titans
Poor Titans - they could sneak this one away from Shark Park but your tipping livelihood says you have to pick the Premiers at home on a Saturday night. Cronulla please. Titans drop to 1-7 but remember Hayne is back...

Bulldogs over Tigers
Dogs aren't going as well as their recent 3 game winning streak suggests and the Tigers should have a 2 game winning streak had they not blown a 10 point lead on Easter Monday. Tigers have points in them sure and probably make me look bad - but Dogs are the smarter pick here and we need to keep making those picks to be competitive in a month or two.

Roosters over Dragons
Burst that bubble Easts. Burst it big time.

Storm over Warriors
Melbourne at home in a big game please.
