NRL Round 19 Tips from The Postman | 2020 Season

The Postman's Tips for Round 192020.
Published September 16, 2020

A perfect round was just sitting there and I didn't use my brain... sure the Warriors win and I'm a genius with 8/8 and everyone else who breezed through to 7/7 would be crying about the Sharks... but it was a dumb upset pick at the end of the round.
If the game was at the start of the round - no dramas at all - you cop it and move on but Shaun Johnson was playing and I even said as much "If Shaun Johnson plays I will probably go with the Sharks but at this stage - Warriors baby!" - so to drop a perfecto like this is sheer stupidity.
Listen to thine self... yikes.
Still 7/8 doesn't suck. On to Round 19.

Round 19 Tips:
Rabbitohs over Bulldogs
Souths should really put a 20+ margin of victory on the woeful Bulldogs this Thursday.

Panthers over Cowboys
Penrith should put 40 on the Cowboys.

Eels over Broncos
Parramatta bounce back here and probably win well. Brisbane are a mess and the end of 2020 can't come quick enough.

Sea Eagles over Titans
Roll the dice. If Tom Trbojevic plays Manly deserve favouritism but the Gold Coast have been playing the far better footy over the last two months. Manly I guess.

Storm over Tigers
Melbourne win and secure 2nd spot for the Finals.

Roosters over Sharks
Even though Tedesco and Taukeiaho aren't playing - Cronulla are going to get an almighty reality check from the Premiers on Saturday night.

Raiders over Warriors
If Canberra match the Warriors up front in the first half - this game has the look of quite a few games Canberra has won of late - a close first half and then it'll be downhill skiing for them in the second.

Knights over Dragons
Newcastle and Saints were bad bad bad last week... Newcastle are still a chance at a home final as the 5th or 6th seed so they surely lift for this with Ponga, Barnett and Hunt back.
