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.
6 from 8 last weekend for my tips. Solid performance. This weekend has a fair few tough ones.
I know we found the budget speech on Tuesday quite complex, so here's the summary.
Ok let's look into this weeks NRL games...
Broncos @ Cowboys (Friday) Tip: Cowboys
The big QLD derby. The Broncos smashed the Cowboys 44-22 in Round 3 at Suncorp. I except the Cowboys will be out for a square up.
Roosters @ Bulldogs (Friday) Tip: Bulldogs
The big discussion point for all NSW fans in around the selection of the halves. Bulldogs pair Josh Reynolds & Trent Hodkinson?, are directly against the men they replaced in Mitchell Pearce and James Maloney from the Roosters.
After this match you would feel that Laurie Daley will have a fair idea which direction he will go here.
Fair few big players back for the Bulldogs Josh Reynolds, Greg Eastwood and this guy....
Warriors @ Eels (Saturday) Tip: Warriors
The Eels have dropped Chris Sandow, Joseph Paulo and David Gower all form based. Wonder what impact this shake up will do to the team.
Konrad Hurrell has been suspended 3 weeks for his knee lifting shot that broke Anthony Tupou's jaw. Least he will have time to spend on his deck and make more snapchat videos.
Sharks @ Gold Coast (Saturday) Tip: Sharks
Sharks should boucle back from their tough last minute loss against New Zealand last week.
Mean while let's see what Greg Bird has been up to on his suspension break.
Souths @ Storm (Saturday) Tip: Storm
Adam Reynolds came back last Monday for Souths and showed how much they miss him. Then he gets a thumb injury. Once again, they will miss him! The Storm machine to roll on and win easy.
I still expect some classic Craig Bellamy action.
Raiders @ Dragons (Sunday) Tip: Dragons
Sam Williams played 60 minutes of last weeks game with a collapsed lung. Tough effort. This gives a chance for young halfback Mitch Cornish to play halfback for Raiders this weekend. They are currently on a 3 match winning streak.
I expect the Dragons at home to be too good for the young Raiders.
Tigers @ Knights (Sunday) Tip: Knights
Knights have got to focus on their ball control. And not in this way...
Panthers @ Sea-Eagles (Monday) Tip: Panthers
Matt Moylan needs a big performance for the Panthers in this match against Manly on Monday to help build his chances for a blues jumper.
Have a good weekend guys and enjoy the footy!
