NRL Round 25 Tips from The Postman | 2018 Season

The Postman's Round 25 NRL Tips
2018 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - August 29 2018


And so... it's finally over.

The pain and suffering that has been The Postman's worst tipping season since it began in 2010... 5/8 last week wasn't horrible but sitting at 54.3% for the season with one round to go is.

Let's just pretend 2018 didn't happen okay?


Tips for Round 25 2018

Rabbitohs over Tigers
Souths surely bounce back and win a game before the Semis... Tigers won't be farewelling Benji and Robbie which is great news but South Sydney is the tip.

Warriors over Raiders

The Warriors should do the job here. Canberra were good the last two weeks but they haven't been for the whole year.

Storm over Panthers

Melbourne please.

Knights over Dragons

Canterbury beat Saints in a canter at Kogarah... Newcastle on Old Boys day could do the same such is my concern for how insipid the Dragons look right now.

Cowboys over Titans
JT inspires the Cowboys here... or the Gold Coast win by 20. Go with the former.

Roosters over Eels
Eastern Suburbs by plenty by the time the full time siren sounds on a horrendous season by the Eels.

Sharks over Bulldogs
Canterbury to be competitive but they've played two lesser teams than the Sharks the past fortnight.

Broncos over Sea Eagles
Brisbane will know what they need to do to finish wherever (get a home Final etc) so they'll have something to play for... Manly gave up 3+ months ago. Bye bye Trent.

NRL Round 24 Tips from The Postman | 2018 Season

The Postman's Round 24 NRL Tips
2018 National Rugby League Premiership
By W D Nicolson - August 23 2018


So first, my apologies. Missed the week in terms of publishing my tips to the site for the first time (possibly ever) but you were right not to be disappointed... 2/8. So bad. 5/8 the week before wasn't terrible but as we've said for a while - the sooner this season is over the better.

Let's regroup for 2019 and the promise of that winning every single tipping comp we're in feeling.


Tips for Round 24 2018

Tigers over Sea Eagles
Hard to see Manly responding positively to their capitulation to the Gold Coast and another week of it being clear Trent Barrett hasn't wanted to be there this year. Tigers thanks.

Warriors over Panthers

Yeah... I have no clue. Both teams disappoint and underwhelm me, but the Warriors at home here so yeah, them.

Cowboys over Eels

60+ points on the cards here. Taumalolo carries the entire team (and JT) over the line here.

Rabbitohs over Raiders

Canberra back up last week's effort and the Bunnies will be pushed hard. But Souths should be too good.

Storm over Titans
Cam Smith plays and Melbourne win. But the Titans weren't bad at all for a few minutes against Manly so they should be competitive.

Roosters over Broncos
Eastern Suburbs at the SFS thanks.

Sharks over Knights
Cronulla should win - especially with Ponga unlikely if not out already.

Dragons over Bulldogs
Saints are far from a sure thing, if the Dogs play some footy they'll worry St George Illawarra here.

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.
