NRL Round 20 Tips from The Postman | 2020 Season

The Postman's Tips for Round 202020.
Published September 23, 2020

So... another 6/8 effort and of the two upsets there was only one you possibly saw coming... and it wasn't the Bulldogs over Rabbitohs. Manly are really bad at some basics right now and the Titans are playing adventurous footy and getting rewarded.

But still to get to 108 from 152 with 8 games left, means that to stay at the 70% success rate for the season - I need to get at least 4/8 in Round 20.

Can it be done? Who knows after Ricky Stuart and Craig Bellamy rested 87% of their rosters for the final round in what should have been gimme games at full strength.

Round 19 Results:
Bulldogs 26 Rabbitohs 16 Incorrect
Panthers 32 Cowboys 12 
Eels 26 Broncos 12 - 
Titans 42 Sea Eagles 24 Incorrect
Storm 50 Tigers 22 Correct
Roosters 34 Sharks 18 Correct
Raiders 26 Warriors 14 
Knights 42 Dragons 18
2020 TIPPING STATS: 108/152 at 71.1%

Round 20 Tips:
Broncos over Cowboys
I have absolutely no idea who to pick here... expecting to be 0/1 straight away. Seriously who do you pick???

Knights over Titans
0/2 is on the cards already! Getting to 4/8 could be tough kids. Knights on the road but they do have a home final to play for... so go with Ponga and Pearce.

Roosters over Rabbitohs
If the Knights drop their earlier game to the Titans then Souths will be playing for a home final here so if you desperate you can entertain the Bunnies... but don't be dumb. Pick Easts.

Panthers over Bulldogs
Penrith don't stuff up like Souths last week. Dogs however might need to win to avoid the spoon if the Broncos win on Friday night... but yeah Penrith.

Raiders over Sharks
UPDATE SATURDAY 4:55pm Saturday: With the Sharks now resting four players of their own, going with the Raiders in a change of tip.
Surely Cronulla beat a reserve grade side and get their confidence up for the real thing a week later against the same opposition.

Eels over Tigers
Parra and the Tigers in a track meet in Benji's last game... it'll be entertaining I'm sure of that but go with the Eels who may need to win to hold onto 4th.

Warriors over Sea Eagles
No RTS is a factor but again no Tommy Trbojevic and Manly are a rabble outside of DCE really. I really don't have a preference here but it is the Warriors last game of the season and it is on the Central Coast so I'm going with them to say goodbye to their hosts with a win.

Storm over Dragons
Toss a coin... and pick Melbourne anyway.
