NRL Round 15 tips
We’re over the hump folks and that means that competition points really start to hold meaning. Many are claiming that the top eight teams will remain the same and that only their order will change. It’s hard to argue with those claims at this point in time.
Eels v Rabbitohs
Rabbitohs – South Sydney are just red hot at the moment and even though they didn’t play well last weekend, they just don’t know how to lose at this point in time. Parramatta had their first win for some time against the Cowboys last week, but I can’t see them beating the best team in the competition at the moment.
Cowboys v Warriors
Cowboys – The Warriors had a great win last weekend and the Cowboys were very disappointing. However, the Warriors have too many inconsistencies for me and with the Cowboys due for a win, I think they will get the two points in front of a Townsville crowd.
Roosters v Panthers
Roosters – Penrith used their ‘get out of jail free card’ against Canberra last Friday night while the Roosters won a tight one in Newcastle. Although the Panthers are on top, they just haven’t been electrifying and against the Roosters at Allianz, I am tipping them to go down to a strong side.
Bulldogs v Titans
Bulldogs – Both sides lost tight games by two points last weekend against teams at the upper end of the ladder. The Bulldogs have lost so many close games, but in front of a Belmore crowd I am tipping them to finally get a tight victory.
Dragons v Sea Eagles
Dragons – St George were very disappointing after a flying start against the Bulldogs and Manly were defeated convincingly by the Warriors. I am extremely tempted to pick Manly after how disappointing St George have been but in Wollongong, they are due to turn it up. I believe they will win comfortably.
Sharks v Broncos
Sharks – Brisbane started well against Melbourne but couldn’t get the win while Cronulla were the complete opposite. I just don’t really rate the Broncos as a football side and I think the Sharks will win fairly comfortably.
Knights v Storm
Storm – The Knights went oh so close last weekend against the Roosters at home. The Storm were impressive against the Broncos and I believe they will just be too classy for an inexperienced Newcastle outfit.
Tigers v Raiders
Tigers – Canberra were extremely unlucky last weekend, so we were told. But how much can you blame on bad luck when you’re continuously losing tight matches? The Tigers are back to one of their spiritual home grounds in Campbelltown and on a bright Sunday afternoon, I am expecting them to win in front of their home supporters.
3 things to look forward to:
- Roosters and Panthers battle it out for Friday night footy
- Back to Belmore
- Tigers turn it up at Campbelltown
