Ok footy fans, if you are unsure what to take in your work footy tipping comp or just looking for a good reason to watch the games this weekend, I've got you covered. I'll go through the games, offer my tip and a laugh or two along the way.
This Friday marks 13 years ago to the day of one of my most fav sports rants of all time. Ladies and gentlemen, Mr Allen Iverson dicussing practice:
Let's look at the games this weekend
Panthers @ Broncos Tip: Broncos
Panthers are battling injuries. Jamie Soward is being given until the last minute to prove his fitness. However, can’t see that as enough for them. I expect the Broncos to take care of business at home.
Tigers @ Roosters Tip: Roosters
Let’s remember that Jason Taylor was the assistant coach under Trent Robinson in the Roosters premiership run. Wonder if their set plays will look familiar?
Titans @ Raiders Tip: Raiders
Two unexpected form teams.
The Raiders on the other hand had a fantastic away win again the Rabbitohs. Blake Austin is fast becoming the buy of the season and put on a great show at city/country game.
Titans will be at a loss without Greg Bird aka ANTONIO MONTANA
Warriors @ Sharks Tip: Sharks
Wonder how Nathan Friend is feeling about the potential Issac Luke signing?
Andrew Fifita is back from suspension for the Sharks after a strong city/country showing.
Bulldogs @ Cowboys Tip: Cowboys
Cowboys have hit great form and need one last big performance before the origin season interrupts their team.
David Klemmer is back for the Bulldogs from his break for offering to constructive criticism to the referee in the Good Friday clash. I expect him to be fired up in pressing for a blues jumper. Here’s some footage of him as a youngster.
Knights @ Sea Eagles Tip: Sea Eagles
Tough one to pick here. Knights have fallen flat since their great start. The Sea Eagles since looking like wooden spoon favs are coming off an impressive win over the Storm.
Just in case you forgot about this rivalry, take a moment to remember that cracking 1997 grand final. The Newcastle workers club was going off that Sunday.
Storm @ Eels Tip: Storm
Billy “The Karate Kid” Slater is back.
Dragons @ Rabbitohs Tip: Dragons
Wow, Monday night football is back…!!
Have a good weekend guys and enjoy the footy!!
