NRL Round 22 Tips from The Postman | 2018 Season

The Postman's Round 22 NRL Tips
2018 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - August 8 2018


4/8 last week... let's be glad this season is almost over and hope 2019 is a bit kinder to our tipping.


Tips for Round 22 2018

Broncos over Cowboys
This has a JT farewell win over the Broncos at home written all over it but yeah... I'll still pick Brisbane.

Warriors over Knights

Despite last week's win over Saints, the Warriors are not quite safe in the Top 8 unless they get this win and the Tigers fall over to the Raiders on Sunday. Knights are capable, but sticking with the Warriors at home. Crowd will be interesting though - hopefully it's a good one for a Friday night 8pm start.

Roosters over Rabbitohs

Have gone back and forth here... had Easts at the start of the week... and have done a lot of soul searching... and ended up with Easts.

Panthers over Titans

Surely the Penrith players respond and crush the Gold Coast. Surely.

Sea Eagles over Bulldogs
Being harsh on the Dogs because of the footy they played last week but hey Manly won as well! Go Manly at home.

Dragons over Eels
Wake up Saints. Wake up or you'll be cannon fodder again at the important part of the year.

Tigers over Raiders
Canberra played some good footy last week... then still found a way to lose scoring 31 points. Go the Tigers - make the Top 8 race interesting!

Storm over Sharks
Cracking clash... Cam Smith gets through 80 mins with his foot injury and I'm confident the Storm win at home.

NRL Round 21 Tips from The Postman | 2018 Season

The Postman's Round 21 NRL Tips
2018 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - August 1 2018


0/3 to start the round, then 3/3, then 0/2... pretty much the story of the tipping season this year.


Tips for Round 21 2018

Broncos over Bulldogs
Brisbane's form of late suggests this could be 40-6. Then again the Dogs may not reach 6.

Tigers over Knights

At this point... Tigers have something play for. Knights... not so much but the Tigers win and they can be genuine Top 8 chances even after their bad loss to the Dogs last week.

Storm over Rabbitohs

Good clash... tasty clash. Melbourne on the road... but no confidence.

Dragons over Warriors

Saints bounce back but Warriors can't roll over again do they...

Eels over Titans
Parra.......... what am I doing. I feel sick.

Roosters over Cowboys
Roosters by 20 if they keep up their form from last week's carve up of the Saints.

Sharks over Sea Eagles
Cronulla should do it easy - despite Manly's very good record against Cronulla of late.

Panthers over Raiders
Canberra have nothing to play for anymore - so Penrith in Penrith thanks.

NRL Round 20 Tips from The Postman | 2018 Season

The Postman's Round 20 NRL Tips
2018 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - July 25 2018


Those Bunnies finally fell over... and the Tigers proved to be the only thing stopping us from a perfect round. 


Tips for Round 20 2018

Sharks over Broncos
Tough tough tough one... Brisbane at home... but Cronulla might be rounding into some form after taking care of the desperate Raiders. Then again... Brisbane just crushed Penrith in Brisbane. Going Sharks...

Knights over Cowboys

Mitchell Pearce and Kalyn Ponga together again and the Cowboys are an utter rabble... so even in Townsville, as long as Newcastle tackle half decently they should find a way to continue JT's miserable season.

Tigers over Bulldogs

Surely the Tigers don't fall over themselves this week when they've just knocked off the Dragons and Bunnies in consecutive weeks?

Panthers over Sea Eagles

Expecting a big bounce back from Penrith - even at Brookie.

Rabbitohs over Eels
If Souths are the real deal - they win this by 20+. Parra are horrible and have nothing to play for. If Souths want a Top 4 spot - they have to win this.

Storm over Raiders
Melbourne thanks.

Warriors over Titans
Over to you Warriors - you want to snuff out the chasers for your Top 8 spot - you have to win this game on the Gold Coast. Lose and the door swings wide open.

Dragons over Roosters
Just have a feeling... Easts ran riot at Brookie, while the Dragons did what they had to in order to win in Townsville... Saints in a tight one.

NRL Round 19 Tips from The Postman | 2018 Season

The Postman's Round 19 NRL Tips
2018 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - July 19 2018


5/8 last week... full disclosure when Cronk withdrew I changed from Roosters to Titans... so went 5/5 to open the weekend then 0/3 on Sunday. Don't change your tips kids... unless 98% of the Roosters good players are out... but evidently still don't pick the Titans.


Tips for Round 19 2018

Eels over Bulldogs
Going with the class of Corey Norman and Jarryd Hayne to get Parra a rare win in 2018 here...

Sharks over Raiders

Cronulla can pretty much snuff out any danger the Raiders can present to Cronulla's Top 8 place with a win here - so I can't see the Sharks giving this one up.

Broncos over Panthers

James Maloney is fit and I pick Penrith... right now he's no certainty so going with the Broncos in Brisbane.

Knights over Titans

The Gold Coast have burned me badly on consecutive weeks... and Mitchell Pearce played out of his skin on his return last week so that's the deciding factor. (Watches Titans turn it on now).

Rabbitohs over Tigers
What a pity this game is at ANZ and not Leichhardt... Farah plays 250 and Sutton plays 300... hopefully some people turn up. Tigers capable but Souths haven't given you a good reason not to pick them the last 2 months.

Dragons over Cowboys
Surely the Dragons aren't a team about to go on a second half fade-out again... I mean I'd like to see it but surely not even a JT inspired Cowboys in Townsville can be enough... the Cowboys have been deplorable pretty much all year. Dragons would be on the verge of dropping out of the Top 4 in a fortnight if they lost here - unthinkable stuff.

Storm over Warriors
In Auckland so you'd think the Warriors are a better chance... until you see all of Melbourne's Origin reps on the team sheet again.

Roosters over Sea Eagles
C'mon Manly... wake up... it's Sunday arvo at Brookie... but pick Easts.

NRL Round 18 Tips from The Postman | 2018 Season

The Postman's Round 18 NRL Tips
2018 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - July 13 2018


2/4... in a 4 game round you'll take that.


Tips for Round 18 2018

Sharks over Panthers
Just on the back of Penrith resting Cleary, Maloney and probably Peachey... and last week's crushing win over the Warriors without them was nice and all but Cronulla aren't the Warriors.

Knights over Eels

Pearce back... guess I've gotta take Newcastle then.

Rabbitohs over Bulldogs

They are sitting on top of the ladder so South Sydney it is. Yes I'm still not in love with them yet.

Storm over Sea Eagles

Melbourne should be too good and will want some payback from being embarrassed by Manly in Melbourne a month or two back.

Raiders over Cowboys
Simply put Canberra have to win (and keep winning) this to stay in the Top 8 race... so cue a JT masterclass. But go with Canberra, enjoy the masterclass if it happens.

Broncos over Warriors
Don't really like picking Brisbane despite their comprehensive win over the Titans and the Warriors failing to turn up at Penrith last weekend. But it is in Brisbane, so Broncos.

Dragons over Tigers
Big bounce back time for the Dragons... if they are actually the team they want us to believe they are.

Roosters over Titans
This is only if Cooper Cronk plays... if he misses for the birth of his baby, then I would actually tip the Gold Coast to rebound from last Sunday's inept effort.

NRL Round 17 Tips from The Postman | 2018 Season

The Postman's Round 17 NRL Tips
2018 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - July 5 2018


3/8... yikes. Back to old habits. Sorry.


Tips for Round 17 2018

Storm over Dragons
Storm pack is superior in this one and they've still got Cameron Smith. Dragons win and all their fill in forwards deserve a raise.

Warriors over Panthers

Warriors at home (WHAT DID I WRITE A FEW HOURS BACK? The game is at Penrith - but yeah, Warriors). Panthers just missing too many key playmakers.

Raiders over Bulldogs

Josh Hodgson tried to beat Brisbane on his own... he'll accomplish the feat at Belmore.

Titans over Broncos

Ash Taylor v Anthony Milford... but I like the Gold Coast's supporting cast more.

NRL Round 16 Tips from The Postman | 2018 Season

The Postman's Round 16 NRL Tips
2018 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - June 27 2018


6/8... like two weeks ago. Oh and NSW are State of Origin champions for 2018... gee that's sweet to type.


Tips for Round 16 2018

Dragons over Eels
Saints thank you.

Warriors over Sharks

Couple of big outs in the backrow for Cronulla... may regret giving the Warriors the benefit of the doubt at home but the Sharks got beaten at home last time out by Brisbane remember.

Storm over Roosters

Going Melbourne but big side note here: stoked the game is not only in Adelaide but is a Friday night game at a sensational venue. Great scheduling... yes I said it.

Panthers over Sea Eagles

Penrith please.

Knights over Bulldogs
Zero confidence in either team... Newcastle are at home.

Raiders over Broncos
In Josh Hodgson we trust.

Tigers over Titans
Farah leads the Tigers to a comeback victory at Leichhardt Oval on a Sunday arvo. Couldn't script it any better.

Rabbitohs over Cowboys
South Sydney please put JT's Cowboys out of their misery... then again it's in Cairns... stranger things have happened and I'm not completely convinced the Bunnies are the real deal.

NRL Round 15 Tips from The Postman | 2018 Season

The Postman's Round 15 NRL Tips
2018 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - June 13 2018


7/8 - thanks North Queensland for absolutely nothing! Beaten by Parra... yikes.


Tips for Round 15 2018

Rabbitohs over Eels
Don't really want to pick Souths - I know they are 10-4 but are they really this good? Parra on the other hand weren't terribly good v the Cowboys but got a result... so Souths it is.

Warriors over Cowboys

Don't trust the Warriors but the Cowboys have given me no reason to trust them at all despite their roster... feel foolish picking the Warriors in Townsville but the Warriors are 4th and the Cowboys are 14th!

Panthers over Roosters

Easts at home makes sense until you look at Penrith sitting 2nd on the ladder. So go Penrith.

Titans over Bulldogs

Back at Belmore yes... but I watched Canterbury in the flesh last week and Ashley Taylor is worth more than every attacking player the Dogs have... combined.

Dragons over Sea Eagles
Manly will have a crack but Saints for me.

Sharks over Broncos
Could be a really good contest - both teams have some football in them. But Sharks at home thanks.

Storm over Knights
Melbourne could win by 40.

Raiders over Tigers
Josh Hodgson plays well in his return and Canberra might have a future in this comp after all... Tigers will continue to miss Benji big time in the halves.

NRL Round 14 Tips from The Postman | 2018 Season

The Postman's Round 14 NRL Tips
2018 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - June 7 2018


1/4 in the short short Round 13 but then again not many people did any better... so let's move on.


Tips for Round 14 2018

Panthers over Raiders
Can't trust Canberra... although Penrith have more players backing up from Origin - go the Panthers.

Rabbitohs over Titans

Souths will drop a game soon and yeah it might be to the Titans but pick Souths.

Warriors over Sea Eagles

Shaun Johnson back... Trbojevic brothers got beat up in Origin and Manly's depth is questionable at best. Warriors in Christchurch thanks.

Roosters over Knights

Easts found a way last week v the Tigers, should have the Knights covered even in Newcastle.

Cowboys over Eels
Do I have to pick either team... I can't pick the Cowboys but I can't pick the Eels... going with North Queensland.

Sharks over Tigers
Cronulla, the Tigers have hurt me too much over the past two months to go with in this one.

Storm over Broncos
Melbourne... yeah... Melbourne.

Dragons over Bulldogs
St George Illawarra should put 30 or 40 on the Dogs... I said should.

NRL Round 13 Tips from The Postman | 2018 Season

The Postman's Round 13 NRL Tips
2018 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - May 30 2018


6/8 last week... and I've hit 52.1% success rate for the year!

Somebody stop me!


Tips for Round 13 2018

Manly over Cowboys
I can't pick the Cowboys anymore... they are a good team waiting to happen maybe but we haven't seen it yet. Seen more of that from Manly so stick with them at Brookie.

Sharks over Rabbitohs

Fairly evenly matched with limited Origin representation this year... go Sharks.

Knights over Eels

Kalyn Ponga is my reason here... no Corey Norman also a factor.

Tigers over Roosters

Really should go Tigers... really should with Easts missing a bunch... so ok... will go Tigers. Regretting it already.

8 teams have the bye with Origin 1 next Wednesday.

NRL Round 12 Tips from The Postman | 2018 Season

The Postman's Round 12 NRL Tips
2018 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - May 23 2018


4/8 last week... well the good news is we stay at .500 for the season! Not much else to crow about.


Tips for Round 12 2018

Broncos over Eels
I like Norman at fullback but Parra's pack just hasn't got any mojo this year. Brisbane at home.

Sea Eagles over Raiders

Don't trust Canberra until Josh Hodgson comes back... who knows when that is... so go Manly.

Storm over Cowboys

Have given the Cowboys way too many chances this year... Storm to rebound but I'm not extremely confident by any means. JT is still JT.

Roosters over Titans

Good luck Easts... you are good and terrible this year and the Titans haven't been much different. Better news is the Central Coast gets a game.

Rabbitohs over Warriors

Why don't I trust the Warriors? Because I've watched them for years and years and years... I don't trust Souths at all but I trust the Warriors less.

Dragons over Panthers

No idea - coin came up Saints.

Sharks over Knights
Cronulla thanks.

Tigers over Bulldogs
Wests Tigers will do.

NRL Round 11 Tips from The Postman | 2018 Season

The Postman's Round 11 NRL Tips
2018 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - May 17 2018


5/8... not bad, not bad at all.

Got Manly and Cronulla as upsets, whiffed badly on the Cowboys and Eels. When the Rabbitohs walk over the Dragons you just shrug your shoulders.

To Round 11 and the quest to stay at .500!


Tips for Round 11 2018

Panthers over Tigers
I've been burnt by the Tigers nearly every week... so of course I pick Penrith in Penrith.

Eels over Warriors

What the heck do I know... Parra suck, Warriors sucked like the Warriors of last year last week... so Parra at ANZ in front of 20 people on a Friday night.

Roosters over Broncos

Brisbane are really down on troops up front - so Easts... because they are actually healthy for the most part.

Titans over Knights

Not respecting Newcastle enough but I really think games like these between two average teams are when we all sit there and go 'Ash Taylor is an outstanding footballer'. Over to you Ash.

Cowboys over Rabbitohs

At some point the Cowboys will fire off a month of wins... Souths beat Saints yes but I don't have confidence in them visiting Townsville.

Storm over Sea Eagles

Melbourne... I really should take the no-Cam Smith factor into heavier consideration but Manly will have a big come down from finally winning a game last week and Melbourne will rally I think without Smith.

Dragons over Raiders
St George Illawarra bounce back and Canberra are not very good at all. Enjoy the footy Mudgee.

Sharks over Bulldogs
Snore-fest... Sharks thanks.
