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.
