NRL Round 10 Tips from The Postman | 2017 Season

The Postman's Round 10 NRL Tips
2017 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - May 10, 2017

Hey guess what... we tipped 5/8 again last Round!

The Postman has delivered a 61.2% success rate for the year to date which isn't horrible but in the 9 Rounds played there's been 7 5/8s and a stand alone 2/8 and 7/8.

So time to get better... or simply not get any worse.

Now Round 10 and 11 are the last two full rounds before we hit the bye rounds - so if you're gonna make any headway on your tipping leaderboards - now is the time.

Tips for Round 10 2017

Bulldogs over Cowboys
Dogs were okay (not great) last week in beating a underwhelming Canberra and the Cowboys were ordinary without JT again... go the home team even with Reynolds out.

Sharks over Dragons
Cronulla should win. The Premiers surely don't lose to a Dragons team with the spine of Nightingale-Mann-McCrone-McInnes do they?

Rabbitohs over Tigers
Flipped a coin here... it ended up heads. But I hadn't allocated a side to each team... literally have no idea who to pick. For some reason Souths ended up getting picked. Happy to change tomorrow let alone before kick-off. Both teams are baaaaad.

Panthers over Warriors
Penrith win... well they need to, so I'm picking them.

Storm over Titans
Bromwich and Proctor serve the first of their club imposed suspensions... and it probably hurts the Gold Coast more at the moment with Jesse Bromwich down on impact big time in 2017. Melbourne have Slater playing great alongside the always great Smith and Cronk so I'll take the Storm. But the Titans with Hayne should not be ignored if you want a sexy outsider pick.

Broncos over Sea Eagles
If this was at Brookie I'd be tempted by Manly (who have played very well the past two weeks - mind you, they have sucked at home in 2017) but Brisbane in Brisbane is a tough reality to tip against... even when the game isn't Thursday or Friday night!

Raiders over Knights
Canberra dropped a point against the Knights in the corresponding game last year and simply cannot afford to do the same (or in fact lose) in Newcastle on Sunday. They don't have Boyd or Papalii but seriously - they should win by 20.

Roosters over Eels
Great matchup - going with the Chooks because they are at home and got beaten in an awful last minute way last time out. Parra are evolving into a good footy team but Chooks for me.

There's my tips - got your own?
