NRL Round 15 Tips from The Postman | 2017 Season

The Postman's Round 15 NRL Tips
2017 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - June 14, 2017


Yikes... 4/8 and I apologise.

Look once Cronk withdrew Cronulla was the smart pick so not gutted there... Titans were woeful and Canberra blew it - so that happens. Then on Monday the Dogs were goodish and the Saints played more like the team I think they are - so it all means we ended up with 4 wrong.

Just 4 games this weekend - so let's aim for at least 3 correct tips.

And for those playing at home... as much as having Slater and Thurston back makes QLD infinitely more dangerous... one has to believe NSW can ride the momentum of last game into just their second Origin series win since 2005.

Tips for Round 15 2017

Rabbitohs over Titans
After not bothering to turn up last week - this is exactly the kind of game the Gold Coast turn around and do turn up for... then making you regret picking a pretty ordinary South Sydney team. But given Souths are close to full strength and the Titans don't have Jarryd Hayne and evidently picked up more injuries last weekend - you kind of have to stay with the home team Bunnies. But I'll let you pick the Titans if you wish - they are better than they showed last weekend.

Storm over Cowboys
Flip a coin... Cowboys have lost less core pieces (not by much) than Melbourne but Melbourne seem to inherently know how to play at a level that suggests they'll compete even with no Smith, Cronk, Chambers, Slater or Glasby. If you take the Cowboys you are relying on Coote, Granville and Taumalolo to have a bigger impact than Harris, Munster, Bromwich and Finucane. This ain't cut and dried by any stretch but it is in Melbourne.

Sharks over Tigers
Sharks down on some Origin troops but the Tigers are down Woods and Tedesco - so you've gotta pick Cronulla at home.

Eels over Dragons
Giving Corey Norman the benefit of the doubt after a poor return last week... if Parra hold Saints up front (which I think they can do) they have slightly more talent out wide to take advantage. But this is also coin flip territory based on what both teams served up last weekend.
