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.

NRL Round 10 Tips from The Postman | 2018 Season

The Postman's Round 10 NRL Tips
2018 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - May 8 2018


THANKS FOR NOTHING MELBOURNE!

Because they were useless and got run over by the Dragons (thanks to an interesting yet correct ref call - but way too delayed) - The Postman just missed out on rebounding with a perfect round in the tips. Not that I took any real big outsiders but the Cowboys did the job in Bathurst v Penrith which helped.

So 7/8 and I'm feeling good! In fact it's 12 from 16 the last fortnight - what a time to be alive!


Tips for Round 10 2018

Cowboys over Tigers
North Queensland... sorry Tigers I'm off the bus after only very briefly getting on it. Cowboys.

Panthers over Knights

Again I'm tough on Newcastle but they are a team I just can't trust. Penrith were okay last week but got beat, but they are a better team than the Knights.

Eels over Bulldogs

Who really cares? Parra I guess.

Roosters over Warriors

I just can't pick the Warriors with no Shaun Johnson and probably no Issac Luke - yet they are 2nd... Easts are average but they have my 'confidence'.

Storm over Titans

Somehow the Titans pulled this game out of nowhere last year - but after Melbourne got embarrassed at Kogarah - it won't happen again.

Sea Eagles over Broncos

Hunch. Pure and simple. Plus Brisbane really aren't very good either.

Dragons over Rabbitohs
Don't expect Saints to have much of a let down after last Sunday, but Souths just aren't quite good enough for mine to catch them out if they do.

Sharks over Raiders
Canberra might be in relative form of late but they haven't been impressive. Sharks get a troop or two back - going Cronulla... unless I change my mind - same goes for the Manly-Broncos game! Tips early in the week make for serious indecision.

NRL Round 9 Tips from The Postman | 2018 Season

The Postman's Round 9 NRL Tips
2018 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - May 2 2018


5/8 - Let's get this show back on the road!


Tips for Round 9 2018

Broncos over Bulldogs
Yawn-fest possibly... but then again sometimes these games are good... like in 2006. Broncos at home please.

Rabbitohs over Knights

Being harsh on the Knights after their gutsy win last week but Souths don't look terrible this year and are in better health. Greg Inglis could score a hatty or more this week up against that Newcastle right edge... 

Cowboys over Panthers

It's a gut feel... nothing more. Wasting a tip but it's not like I'm going at 65-70% anyway.

Raiders over Titans

C'mon Canberra... show last week wasn't a fluke defensive effort.

Warriors over Tigers

Shaun Johnson, Tohu Harris and maybe Issac Luke being back is big... then again I've put the mock on the Tigers in recent weeks by finally tipping them so for you Tigers fans out there - you are welcome.

Sharks over Eels

Mmmmmm... mmmmm. Cronulla perhaps? No idea given recent weeks, Eels haven't been amazing but they are finally winning.

Storm over Dragons
Should be picking Saints at home but I just can't go against the Storm after their effort in wiping away the Warriors facade last week.

Roosters over Sea Eagles
Easts I think... Manly won't be horrible like recently but Chooks thanks.

NRL Round 8 Tips from The Postman | 2018 Season

The Postman's Round 8 NRL Tips
2018 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - April 24 2018


3/8 - we're in serious trouble kids. 

This has just been a horrible year to tip. Heck I was celebrating back to back 4/8s only a week ago.

Good luck... because there isn't any of it below.


Tips for Round 8 2018

Dragons over Roosters
Saints... I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt here. Roosters forwards were good last week but the Dragons starting pack is outstanding. Saints I think.

Storm over Warriors

No Shaun Johnson in a game like this makes my decision much easier... can't believe I just openly admitted considered the Warriors here. What kind of year is this!?

Broncos over Rabbitohs

Flipping a coin... Sam Burgess being rightfully suspended is why I lean back to the Broncos. But seriously I'm tipping at 41% this year so don't listen to me.

Sea Eagles over Knights

Manly... I think. No Mitchell Pearce for the Knights and DCE and Tommy Trbojevic are fit - so Manly thanks.

Panthers over Bulldogs

This is in Penrith and I watch the Dogs 'play' first hand last Thursday... so enough said.

Sharks over Titans

Really like Cartwright at #6 but will go Cronulla because they were really really good last Sunday.

Cowboys over Raiders
I just don't know. I really don't. Guess it is in Townsville.

Tigers over Eels
Got burned really badly the last time these two played... Tigers please don't let me down again.

NRL Round 7 Tips from The Postman | 2018 Season

The Postman's Round 7 NRL Tips
2018 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - April 18 2018


4/8 two weeks in a row - now that's consistency.

The comp is only tough to tip if you ignore the Wests Tigers and Warriors like I have pretty much all year.

Good luck.


Tips for Round 7 2018

Roosters over Bulldogs
Surely Easts... but Canterbury just won in Townsville... I dunno, go Easts I guess. See instilling you with confidence already.

Dragons over Warriors

Can't rule out the Warriors at home but Saints haven't really given you a reason not to pick them yet. They snuffed out Cronulla's fightback pretty swiftly last week - a great sign if you go for the Dragons.

Storm over Broncos

Sticking with Melbourne - Brisbane win this and I might start taking them seriously though.

Rabbitohs over Raiders

Flip a coin... Souths playing well the last two weeks and Canberra playing well the last two weeks. Good to see on both counts.

Tigers over Knights

Finally picking the Tigers this year... we shall see.

Cowboys over Titans

Based on their record I'm foolishly picking the Cowboys yet again this year... if they lose this are they really just this bad?

Sea Eagles over Eels
You can't pick Parra... especially if you've done it way too many times this year already. Stick with Manly, let Parra win a game first before you waste another tip on them.

Panthers over Sharks
So many big outs for Cronulla... that said they are still a handy team on paper and are at home. But Penrith aren't travelling poorly so stick with the Panthers.

NRL Round 6 Tips from The Postman | 2018 Season

The Postman's Round 6 NRL Tips
2018 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - April 11 2018


We're back!

4/8 with a bullet in Round 5 - twice as good as last week!

I continue to wish you nothing but good luck with your tips... because the good luck certainly isn't with The Postman this season so far.


Tips for Round 6 2018

Roosters over Rabbitohs
Easts please.

Storm over Knights

Pretty confident the Storm bounce back... then again, this season hasn't played by the rules yet.

Dragons over Sharks

Cronulla... I want to pick you. But right now I can't. I won't... okay I might. But stick with Saints.

Warriors over Broncos

Again I lean towards Brisbane because I don't trust the Warriors... but the Warriors are 5-0 and at home. Let the disappointment commence for the first time this year.

Cowboys over Bulldogs

North Queensland are 1-4... but I shan't be picking Canterbury.

Raiders over Eels

Canberra were pretty good last week and Parra were joe average again. Just the kind of game Canberra drop and Parra rediscover some form... but Raiders it will be.

Panthers over Titans
Game is in Penrith - form says Penrith are going okay... Titans have been great the last two weeks, horrendous the week before that. Penrith thanks.

Sea Eagles over Tigers
Sorry Tiges... I may have picked the Warriors for the first time this year but I still can't break my duck for 2018 with picking the Tigers. Manly - esp if Tom Trbojevic returns.

NRL Round 5 Tips from The Postman | 2018 Season

The Postman's Round 5 NRL Tips
2018 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - April 4 2018


Okay... it might be time to give up.

2/8 in Round 4 after starting 0/4 is one way to look for a positive... as thankfully Canberra suck - allowing Manly to be the first favourite to win, then the Dragons took care of the Knights. But then the Titans and Tigers ruined any hope of a 4/8 weekend by being much better than their 'opposition'.

This has easily been my worst start to a tipping season in recent memory so I apologise if you're still relying on me but I'm confident I'm not alone.

Let's see what Round 5 brings.


Tips for Round 5 2018

Raiders over Bulldogs
Yeah... nah. In Canberra right?

Roosters over Sharks

Dunno... Easts have been good and terrible, Sharks mostly average. Probably should pick Cronulla at home but anyhoo...

Dragons over Rabbitohs

Dragons should make it 5-0.

Storm over Tigers

Hobbled Cam Smith and down Chambers and Finucane... I should be picking the Tigers but I just can't do it. Melbourne in Auckland... yeah, that's right.

Cowboys over Warriors

North Queensland are 1-3... the Warriors are 4-0... this is in Auckland and it's a double header so Mt Smart should be completely packed... just the tonic for the Warriors to remember they aren't that good and lose this.

Broncos over Knights

Guess I'll pick Brisbane... in Newy so no certainty at all.

Sea Eagles over Titans
Gold Coast in Round 3 v Round 4 was world's apart... Manly won't have Tom Trbojevic... this tip could change if I start to believe what I saw from the Titans last week I can see again.

Panthers over Eels
Sorry Parra... benefit of the doubt is gone at this point - so Penrith get the tip.

NRL Round 4 Tips from The Postman | 2018 Season

The Postman's Round 4 NRL Tips
2018 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - March 27 2018


4 from 8 = what a performance!

After back to back 3/8s to start the year, yes I'll celebrate one more tip this week.

Surely a 5/8 isn't far away...

Tips for Round 4 2018

Cowboys over Panthers
Townsville and no Nathan Cleary is good enough for me.

Bulldogs over Rabbitohs

No idea. No idea at all. 

Storm over Sharks

Actually think Cronulla could spring an upset here... but am not tipping it.

Roosters over Warriors

Well done Warriors - 3-0 is great and all but the Chooks are the tip.

Sea Eagles over Raiders

Manly I guess.

Dragons over Knights

Newcastle bursting the St. George-Illawarra bubble would be great but don't think it happens this week.

Broncos over Titans
Titans gave up last week... Broncos didn't.

Eels over Tigers
Should respect the Tigers more but Parra... surely they are better than them even without Hayne and French?? This tip could change if I come to my senses.
