NRL Round 22 Tips from The Postman | 2017 Season

The Postman's Round 22 NRL Tips
2017 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - August 1, 2017


5/8 - that old chestnut... to be fair we can't complain with 5/8 when we went exclusively with favourites in Round 21. Parra were just too good for Brisbane from the 6th minute on, the Knights were tremendous to give the Dragons a quick reality check and the Tigers ripped apart the timid Titans.

Now at nearly 66% for the season - a strong end and we're gunning for 70% and a repeat of last year. Stick with me... it could happen.

Tips for Round 22 2017

Eels over Bulldogs
Parramatta secure their Top 8 spot with a win and stay in the running to host an Elimination Final in Week 1 - simply too many good reasons for them to win against a Dogs team that is borderline pathetic in attack right now.

Dragons over Rabbitohs
The Dragons don't come to play for this one and the Bunnies might just make them pay. That said this is a game the Saints need badly to stay slightly ahead of the chasing Panthers for 8th spot... so surely the Dragons don't turn it up... right?

Storm over Cowboys
Love this matchup - given it is in Townsville on a rare Friday night - don't count out the Cowboys. Melbourne always get up for milestone games (Cam Smith's 350th was a fair one of those!) but stick with the Storm for your tip.

Warriors over Knights
Shoot me now - I don't want to pick either team. Really should take the Knights at home but I don't trust them... and I don't trust the Warriors. Have no idea... 

Broncos over Titans
No Andrew McCullough is huge for Brisbane but if Ben Hunt works out at #9 they may not miss a great deal... well apart from defensively. The Titans won't be as bad as they were last week given this is a local derby at home but you've still gotta go Brisbane. Upset alert though.

Sharks over Raiders
Cronulla can end Canberra's season on Saturday night - not convinced they will with James Maloney out though. He's a big loss and Canberra get Papalii and Rapana back from suspension. Go Sharks at home but gee - Canberra could get a massive confidence boost for their unlikely Finals run if they get up...

Roosters over Sea Eagles
Manly are coming off the back of two big time thrashings from Saints and Melbourne - and the Chooks did it easy v Newcastle and then fought hard to beat North Queensland at the SFS. Manly show up and get the chocolates and the past two weeks will be a distant memory but I've had my doubts all year about them so if they get beat I think they may be in all sorts for staying in the Top 8 by the end of Round 26.

Panthers over Tigers
Penrith need to win. Penrith have to win. Penrith should win and win well. Go Penrith.
