NRL Round 25 Tips from The Postman | 2017 Season

The Postman's Round 25 NRL Tips
2017 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - August 23 2017


Round 24 started so well... 6 from 6 and flying... then Penrith made the bookies look stupid beating Canberra in Canberra, then the Bulldogs ripped Manly to shreds.

So 6 from 8... you've gotta take that - anyone who got Penrith picked up a valuable point because next to no one would've tipped Canterbury.

Just over 65% for the year - not quite the 70% of last season but you can't complain with 65% after 176 games.

Tips for Round 25 2017

Broncos over Eels
Manu Ma'u suspended and Bevan French hurt = Brisbane continue their impressive run of form since Parra beat them a few weeks back. Brisbane secure their Top 4 spot (and maybe 2nd outright) here and leave Parra in the elimination section of the Finals.

Raiders over Knights
Canberra can still play Finals... they have made things incredibly difficult for themselves but if they win and win big - they could find themselves with a simple equation of beating Melbourne in Melbourne in Round 26 and they'll be playing Finals. Simple.......

Cowboys over Tigers
I just don't trust the Tigers at all... Cowboys win this and they get a Top 8 spot... they lose and I think they'll get replaced in two weeks time. 

Titans over Bulldogs
This might actually be a good game to watch... the Titans will play a care free style now their coach is gone (rightly or wrongly) and the Dogs just woke up from a year-long slumber. Titans at home I guess.

Storm over Rabbitohs
Storm. Move along.

Sharks over Roosters
Cronulla win when they play Easts of late... so I'll stick with the form-guide.

Sea Eagles over Warriors
Last week I wrote this:
Manly. That is all. They secure their Top 8 spot with a win... surely they don't lose to Canterbury... sub in the Warriors to that sentence. Surely they don't lose a second gimme game???

Panthers over Dragons
Moylan out... that hurts Penrith. Saints weren't bad in Brisbane but you pick Penrith here unless you are a Red V devotee.
There's my tips - got your own?
