NRL Round 23 Tips from The Postman | 2017 Season

The Postman's Round 23 NRL Tips
2017 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - August 18 2017


Eeeeeeeeek.... 4/8 and we were lucky to be that good.

Missed on Saints (who butchered that game v Souths), Warriors (I trusted neither them nor Newcastle so I can live with it), Sharks (Canberra were outstanding) and Easts (Manly found a way as Easts blew a 14 point lead).

But the good news is Parra, Melbourne, Brisbane and Penrith looked after us.

Hurts the overall percentage but can't really complain too much

Tips for Round 23 2017

Rabbitohs over Bulldogs
Does anyone care? I don't. Both teams are at 'home'... so go with the team that won most recently. But good luck in being confident in either team.

Eels over Knights
Parra should win even if they are massively over-rated at the moment. Newcastle might give them a little bit of a fright but can't see them winning.

Sharks over Broncos
My upset of the Round - Sharks got embarrassed by Canberra, Broncos embarrassed the Titans - danger sign for the Broncos. Go Cronulla if you want to take an upset this weekend but I don't really view as an upset to be honest.

Dragons over Titans
Surely the Dragons don't blow another 'gimme' when they can't afford to... part of me wants to pick the Gold Coast for the bounce back factor... and I might just do that come the weekend. But for your tips - go Saints. 

Storm over Roosters
Sure Melbourne Roosters have some injuries but they aren't going to roll over here. Danger game for Melbourne - this won't be a cake-walk.

Panthers over Cowboys
Cracking matchup - Penrith at home is enough for me to tip them though.

Raiders over Warriors
Canberra will know by the time they play if they are closer or further away from that 8th spot with Saints and Penrith playing earlier in the weekend. Either way - they have to win this game but if one of those two teams lose (or if both do) they could beat the Warriors by 50.

Sea Eagles over Tigers
Had Manly lost to the Roosters then Wests would be a serious chance - but Manly all but secure their Finals spot if they win this and they should.
There's my tips - got your own?
