NRL Round 13 Tips from The Postman | 2017 Season

The Postman's Round 13 NRL Tips
2017 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - June 1, 2017


How 'bout those NSW BLUES!

The Sharks and Rabbits have the week off - as will a fair percentage of the Origin players from Wednesday night. So tipping this week won't be as straight forward as any of us would like.

Still - at a success rate of 63% for the year you need to stick with favourites if you've taken my tips every week - so no real big surprises below... but then again...

🚨 NOT The Footy Show did a Podcast right after State of Origin Game 1... check it out for some freshly squeezed joy.

Tips for Round 13 2017

Storm over Knights
Even if Cameron Smith and Cooper Cronk both withdrew given this game's proximity to Wednesday - you'd still pick the Storm. So pick the Storm.

Eels over Warriors
Won't trust the Warriors on the road - no matter how promising they may have looked in beating the Origin-player-less Broncos last weekend. Stick with Parra in your tips.

Dragons over Tigers
You know I want to pick the Tigers here but Saints must be your pick. As it must be mine.

Roosters over Broncos
No Mitchell Pearce apparently... so if you want to take the Broncos (assuming a good percentage of their Origin players backup) you'd be well within your rights to do so. This tip depends on who backs-up for Brisbane - but right now - Easts just.

Cowboys over Titans
I just don't know... Cowboys are playing at home so that is the only thing that appeals to me in making this tip. Hayne backs up for the Gold Coast and I could be swayed though... you saw what a motivated JH does for a footy team last night.

Raiders over Sea Eagles
I give Manly not nearly enough respect... but Canberra could make it 3 in a row this week and really reboot their season. Which come to think of it - Manly seems to have done already. Canberra... just go with it - it'll be a wild adventure for both of us.

Panthers over Bulldogs
Don't really like Moylan moving to five-eighth because he's already playing that role in attack at fullback and the team gets an extra ball player in Te Maire Martin... anyhoo. Dogs just lack the kind of game that makes you want to tip them... that's harsh but if you do pick them you're banking on them to hold the opposition to 10-14 points and that's a big ask...
