Round two selections

St George Illawarra Dragons vs South Sydney Rabbitohs – Thursday night – Netstrata Jubilee Stadium

Tyson Frizell has been busting his balls for years, but he really pushed the limits in round one and he'll be sidelined for quite some time (it hurts to even write that). Not a lot of the 'new' coaches got their seasons underway with a victory, but the wily old master did and few thought he would. Wayne Bennett is smart enough to know that his side will have an edge in the forwards on Thursday. The Dragons are without Frizell, de Belin and Korbin Sims, while the Bunnies have the Burgess brethren in full swing. The Rabbits pack will rumble up the park, and Damien Cook will make the most of it. The risk is the Bunnies don't get themselves up for this game after being up for the Roosters clash. It's a risk, but I'm tipping them.

Verdict – Rabbitohs by 4

Result – Rabbitohs 34 defeated Dragons 18

Canberra Raiders vs Melbourne Storm – Friday night – GIO Stadium

Here's two teams I got wrong in round one, and if I get this tip wrong, I'll get them both wrong in round two as well. Only the Raiders kept their opponents scoreless last weekend but there were a few mitigating factors at play. The Storm were, not surprisingly, clinical in defence against the Broncos. I'm going to assume that's the better form line, but whatever happens this looks like a tight low scoring contest. The Storm are pretty hard to beat under those circumstances...and any circumstances to be fair. Watch Cameron Smith slip into the halfback role while Brandon Smith is on the field – it's a good watch.

Verdict – Storm by 4

Result – Storm 22 defeated Raiders 10

Brisbane Broncos vs North Queensland Cowboys – Friday night – Suncorp Stadium

It's a contest that rarely disappoints. The Cowboys did most things right against the Dragons while the Broncos showed enough positive signs to suggest they'll be a force this season. The suspension of Matt Lodge is significant, because few forwards get through as much work as he does. Furthermore, one of the Broncos former toilers, Josh McGuire, lines up against his old club. He'll have plenty to say should the Cowboys run away with this one. In round one Taumalolo clocked up an astonishing 300+ metres with the ball in hand, three other Cowboys forwards cracked the century, and Matt Scott was just shy of 100 metres despite spending less than half an hour on the park. A repeat of figures like that and the Broncos will be trapped in their own half for much of the contest as they were against the Storm. Even without Lodge, I'm expecting an even contest in the middle this time around. If it's close, and I expect it will be, the goal-kicking of Isaako could prove the difference.

Verdict – Broncos by 2

Result – Broncos 29 defeated Cowboys 10

Cronulla Sharks vs Gold Coast Titans – Saturday afternoon – Shark Park

Another two teams I got wrong in round one (Thinker shakes head). These two sides have scored just one try for the year thus far. As Kanye would say "I couldn't get much wronger". That one try was for the Sharks, it took them 72 minutes to get there (and there was an element of dodgytown about it when they did). The Titans had some excuses last week, with their halfback withdrawing before the game and their five-eighth coming off injured shortly thereafter. At least the playmaking combination of Peachey and Brimson can spend some time preparing this time around. They'll be better, but a win over the Sharks at their dreadful home ground looks unlikely.

Verdict – Sharks by 4

Result – Sharks 20 defeated Titans 6

Newcastle Knights vs Penrith Panthers – Saturday afternoon – McDonald Jones Stadium

I can't believe it folks, but another embarrassing video has been leaked involving players from the Penrith Panthers. Here is the link:

Panthers misbehaving

The Knights impressed me last week. The Panthers not so much.

Verdict – Knights by 4

Result – Panthers 16 defeated Knights 14

Manly Sea Eagles vs Sydney Roosters – Saturday night – Lottoland

Another pair of losers hoping to get their seasons off the mark this weekend. While the Roosters were unimpressive they saved their best for the last ten minutes (when the game was over). At least they finished well. It's hard to see where the Sea Eagles have any edge over their opponents this weekend. About the only positive I can find is the venue, but Brookvale isn't the fortress it once was. Turbo Tom isn't due back until round four at the earliest – it's going to be a long month.

Verdict – Roosters by 8

Result – Roosters 26 defeated Sea Eagles 18

Canterbury Bulldogs vs Parramatta Eels – Sunday afternoon – ANZ Stadium

If I went to a restaurant and ordered the chowder surprise, then spent the next fourteen hours talking to the toilet, you wouldn't think I would back up at the same restaurant the following weekend and order it again. But that's exactly what Dean Pay is doing with his unchanged Bulldogs line-up on Sunday. At what point does loyalty become stupidity? Perhaps Pay doesn't have a lot of dining options. I've never eaten Eel in my life – there's always a first.

Verdict – Eels by 4

Result – Eels 36 defeated Bulldogs 16

Wests Tigers vs New Zealand Warriors – Sunday night – Campbelltown Stadium

One of just two games this round involving teams that both won last weekend – it's the first-placed Warriors vs the third-placed Tigers. Sounds weird right? The Warriors, perhaps lifted by circumstances, comprehensively outplayed a poor opponent, while the Tigers eventually wore down a very poor Sea Eagles. With Issac Luke named for the Warriors, and Moses Mbye in some doubt for the Tigers, I'll tip the Warriors to rack up a rare win in Sydney.

Verdict – Warriors by 8

Result – Tigers 34 defeated Warriors 6

Greetings football fans

I have updated the results from round one in the tipping comp. Apologies for the delay this week. A tough round...as round one often is. Jack.Starky and tigerholic have impressed early and are leading the way.

I will have my previews and tips (for what they are worth) published later today.

Wally will have his tips (worth more than mine) published on Wednesday night.

All the best

Hi Thinker me too mate I managed 4. Cheers.

The Thinker's picture

Thanks Rick...my scoring is almost as poor as my tipping. I might try and tally things up at a more sensible hour next time.

That's been updated now.

Dragons-fanboy's picture

Hello everyone, my tips for this week are:

Dragons by 4 - The Dragons are big outsiders here over the Rabbitohs. But why wouldn't they be, they lost last week and didn't really look convincing, their injury toll has started early unlike last season with Frizell out along with De Belin still suspended and also Korbin Sims still injured and they are coming up against the Rabbitohs who got a win over the premiership favourites and the defending premiers in the Roosters and it was a convincing win as well. But, even though Bennett is the coach of the Rabbitohs being the mastermind that he is, but I do feel that the Rabbitohs may underestimate the Dragons a bit this week especially since what happened last week. Another reason why I feel like I will is because of the Charity Shield win the Rabbitohs got over the Dragons not too long ago. Yeah I know that is a totally different game as there are more youngsters given opportunities but a lot of the players playing in this game did play in the Charity Shield. Is this me being stupid? I don't know. Well at least I do have an excuse being I just cannot go against my team also. So that means... it's the Dragons for me, just.

Storm by 10 - Storm were at their clinical best as per usual. The Raiders impressed in the wet. That shapes up for a really good contest right. And you know what, I am sure that this will be a really good contest whether it's a high scoring, free flowing game or a low scoring, gritty like contest, I am sure that it'll be a solid contest. My tip for this solid contest is the Storm who will just be too good for the Raiders here. Just a friendly reminder, the Raiders fans will be doing the Viking Clap so tune in before the game for plenty of entertainment.

Broncos by 8 - This match-up may be a contender for match of the year and it's only round 2. No matter what, this game always delivers and I mean ALWAYS delivers, these games always get so tight between these two I am almost certain that I am expecting a margin less than 4 yet again between these two. Nothing better than a Queensland derby right. I just feel that the Broncos back at the mighty Suncorp Stadium will open up their account in the winning column this week in what will easily be game of the round for me. Will be interesting to see how JT goes against the Broncos this week, an unbelievable performance last weekend showing what a true beast and phenomenal player that he is.

Sharks by 14 - I am expecting the Sharks to bounce back in a huge way this week at their home in Cronulla. The Sharks faithful will surely be in full voice this week and will be expecting a much better performance this week, I am sure that they'll have a much improved performance this week. Although the weather and the injuries, the Titans didn't do enough to convince me that they'll bounce back this week. (I didn't watch the whole Titans-Raiders game, don't judge me it was dinner time in our household).

Knights by 6 - The Panthers were just as disappointing in rd 1 as they were in the pre-season. The Knights on the other hand, had an impressive performance last week although they weren't really that convincing compared to like a Warriors in rd 1 but still a really good performance from the Knights last week especially in defence. What about Edrick Lee last week huh, match winning performance for him. Watch out for him again. I feel that the Knights will ride their wave of momentum to get yet another win here at home for their faithful and loyal fan base in what should be another cracking game of footy.

Roosters by 16 - Look I know the Roosters were poor last week but still, I really feel that this game was the only game that there's I had no doubt for and is very confident that they will get a big win. Manly were atrocious last weekend and I don't expect much different this week even in front of their faithful at Lottoland. Roosters to bounce back in a huge way here and to make a statement here to those critics that they have now after that rd 1 loss.

Eels by 2 - This game was tough for me to pick. Yes, the Bulldogs were the poorest team in rd 1, and the Eels were the surprise packet of rd 1 getting a real good win in rd 1. But don't get me wrong, this was still a tough game to tip. I just feel that the Bulldogs' confidence would've dropped immensely after what transpired in rd 1 for them and that is not what they need coming into this game coming up against a Parramatta side, who are high on confidence right now and perhaps will be looking to move forward and get another win to go 2 and 0. And I reckon they will in what should be a cracking game. Bulldogs-Eels rivalry is one of those great rivalries that everyone looks forward for when it comes to them two clashing and we should see this rivalry heat up between these two in this one.

And finally... Warriors by 12 - Warriors to get yet another win and a rare one at that in Sydney. Should be a great game with the Warriors and Tigers both stringing big wins together in rd 1. But, there can only be one winner and the Warriors though it won't be as good as a win as rd 1, will get the win here over thr Tigers.

Awesome. Good luck with everyone's teams for this week and with everyone's tips for this week. Cheers!!!!

I would like to send my condolences to all those who passed in Christchurch. Why violence when we can all just love each other and show harmony and show unity.

Cheers!!!!!

Baggy_Gee's picture

Dragons-Fanboy, https://youtu.be/eZQyVUTcpM4 it will all come good. I don't see the Panthers being penalised for that video release by the NRL, their fans on the other hand might be a bit salty with that making the rounds. Sometimes keeping the same kids on the park the week after a flogging is inspired as they want/need to repay the fans from last week, we'll see if the BOYS can go back to back for the first time in a while.

Dragons-fanboy's picture

Baggy Gee,

I sure hope so mate I am so sick of all of this negativity and violence especially when me personally, I always try to be positive. Yeah I agree mate good point, though maybe the Panthers side just needs some time as well as they do have a new coach, and plus when the youngsters in that Panthers lineup get more mature and experienced, they would be able to compliment the experienced heads better which could make for a really good Panthers side with a good culture and potentially a top 4 Panthers side this year because they sure have the potential. Regarding the Eels, I hope so too, it'll be nice to see the Eels have a great start to the season going 2-0 considering they went 0-6 last year and of course, I tipped them as well so I want them to win for my tips and well for your sake as well. Only time will tell. All the best with the tips this week.

Cheers!!!!!

Morning Everyone
Not a bad start to the tipping for this year, now to try and maintain a healthy average.
There are a few difficult picks this week and these include the Warriors over my Tiggers, Raiders against Melbourne in Canberra, Brisbane against Cowboys.
Hope everyone enjoys their footy this week, I'm off to France to walk the Camino from Friday week, just a little walk just under 1000kms, then over to Italy for 2 weeks to wind down, then finally a 3 day break in Paris before we come home.
I'll be putting my tips in through Rocket so hopefully he does not sabotage my tips and does the right thing which I'm sure he will.
Have a great week folks, I'm off for 18 holes of golf.
Christine- What did I tell you about following Rockets tips?

Tiger

NuL1F3's picture

Hi all, slow start to my tipping season. How good was the Cowboys v Dragons game?! Morgo convincingly earning his new title but I guess was there any doubt he would? My tips for this week are:
Rabbitohs
Raiders
Cowboys (I'm hoping the boys will keep their momentum going from last week but this will be a tough, close game. I really should tip Broncos given the home field advantage but I just can't look past my team after the effort put in against the Dragons. COME ON COWBOYS!)
Sharks
Knights
Roosters
Eels (I feel this game could really go either way, this tip is more or less a coin toss)
Warriors (For what should be a great game)
Have a great weekend everyone and to all those in the competition, good luck!

Mary S's picture

Hi Tiger,
Have to admit to being a bit surprised to see you backing the Warriors instead of your tigers this round! Do you think Warriors will maintain their standard of play again this week?

I hope you have a wonderful trip to Europe, and have several pairs of 'worn in' shoes for that hike you are undertaking, as nothing worse than new shoes and blisters!!

Take care, as currently there are some violent, political disturbances around the world.

Cheers, Mary

Here’s my tips

Rabbitohs by 6 While the Dragons were okay in their lost to the Cowboys they weren’t great and I think the same will happen here

Storm by 4 I don’t think the Raiders were that great in their win against Titans but Storm on the other hand were just fantastic so Storm for me

Cowboys by 1 I’m hoping but they played awesome against the Dragons Broncos weren’t to bad In their lost to the Storm but fingers cross that Cowboys will win

Sharks by 14 You just can’t tip the Titans here after their shocking lost against the Raiders

Knights by 2 After how shocking the Panthers played In round 1 I really don’t think they will beat the Knights

Roosters by 10 Either though Roosters didn’t play to great against Rabbitohs I still think they will do good and surely they will beat Manly who were shocking

Eels by 8 How good were the Eels in their win over Panthers and how shocking were the Bulldogs in their lost against Warriors Eels definitely for me

West Tigers by 1 tough one to pick I’ve gone West Tigers based on home ground advantage alone but don’t be surprised if I’m wrong

Hi Mark Ashford
Thanks for your comment mate, I am a little nervous about the long flights and I am not sure how my body will hold up to 1000km. Only time will tell, good luck this year mate in tipping and your Broncos.

Hi Mary
My thoughts around taking the Warriors is just a gut feeling. I love my Tigers but I am trying to tip with my head.
I am excited about my trip with my wife, it's funny that you mention good shoes and blisters because I had to buy new boots about 3 weeks ago and so far I am uncomfortable at the end of each long walk.

Good luck this year Mary with your tipping.

I have saved my response to you because I love you on this site. You failed the first rule in Banter, I threw out a little bait and you took it hook line and sinker.
I was not dragging you into anything between Rocket and I, he and I are mates and love throwing little jabs at him as he does to me.

Rocket once told me that you don't win the premiership in any other month than October, when you have a good round you need to crow like the biggest, shiniest and loudest tipster out there.

I really laughed about your terrorist comment because I am terrified that I will get a Pilot like the one who took k down MH370, or when I am on the Eiffel Tower some f-----g terrorist who got short changed when he paid for his sandwich on the viewing floor of the tower flies his plane into the tower with me trying to run down a 100 flights of stairs.

I'm still here next week Christine, good luck with your tipping mate, I =do love having you on this site.

Rocket

Just want you to know I didn't take the bait I was just putting you in your place before you went too far all is good I know you & rocket are mates as I kind of feel we all are on the thinkers site , I don't blame you for tipping warriors this week but tiger we have had this conversation before those are your colours that's what defines you on this site you have to stay loyal & true to your team but it's up to you who you tip , ps have you learnt to talk under water yet in case the plane does go down don't worry I will send rocket in after you if it does promise , have a safe trip tiger ...

newbie from perth's picture

Sa-wat-dee krup,

Interesting set of results in week one for sure. Comforting to know I’m already scoring at my usual 50-50 average. Meh! Anyway, let’s get into it but before we do, just wanna wish tigerholic a safe and enjoyable holiday. You be careful over there mate. Now, where were we? Ah that’s right, round 2 dribbles from yours truly… OK, let’s get into it…

Dragons vs Rabbitohs 35-65 @ Jubilee
Poor ol’ Dragons. No De Belin, Frizell or Sims. Doesn’t help does it. Even though they only lost by 12 (only?) they didn’t really show much against the Cowboys last week. The Rabbitohs were very good against my BBB last week (sob) and deserve the accolades. Can’t believe I saw those 2 tries that came from pinpoint kicks into the posts. Reynolds is a genius. Nah, this one’s pretty easy. Rabbitohs for me.

Raiders vs Storm 40-60 @ GIO Stadium
Both of these sides were winners last week. Canberra made short work of the Titans and the Storm got up over a persistent Broncos. Based on quality of their respective opposition last week the Storm should get up in this one but maybe not by much.

Broncos vs Cowboys 65-35 @ Suncorp
Not happy with the ratings for this game at all. While the Broncos were persistent (in stages) against the Storm last week, the Cowboys looked better in their win over the Dragons. I think Seibold still has to iron out a few bugs with the Broncos and try and get rid of some bad habits. For that reason and how the Cowboys were last week I’m going against the ratings and the betting markets and tipping the Cowboys.

Sharks vs Titans 65-35 @ Shark Park
The Sharks have to be feeling like they let one slip last week and the Titans were very disappointing to say the least. I’m sure both sides will need to get back on track but it won’t be the Titans. The Sharks for me.

Knights vs Panthers 50-50 @ McDonald Jones Stadium
By all accounts the Knights did very well last week against the Sharks. So well in fact the bookies have them favourites in this one. Not sure if the Panthers weren't up to scratch last week or whether the new signings and enthusiasm at the Eels was the difference. One thing is certain though and that is the Panthers need to get off to better starts. History repeating itself? Dunno but I’m giving the Panthers another chance and tipping them for the win.

Manly vs Roosters 35-65 @ Brookvale
I’ve read that Manly were a bit lacklustre last week. Des might need a little more time and for Tom Trbojevic to come back before he sees some results. Don’t worry Big Pete, it’ll happen. Hoping it’s not this week though. I thought my BBB were always a chance but Souths were just too good for us. Plain and simple truth my friends. We’ll bounce back here for sure. Both these sides lost last week and one of them will remain winless after 2. I’ve got a feeling it’ll be Manly. Roosters for me obviously. Begurk! Begurk!

Bulldogs vs Eels 35-65 @ ANZ
You can’t expect to win games if you’re behind by 22 points at half-time, that much I know. Yeah, the Doggies will be embarrassed and will want to bounce back but do they have the ability? The Eels on the other hand, really impressed. Michael Jennings didn’t however. Sometimes he can be an absolute goose! Baggy’s BOYS will be missing not only Jennings but Nathan Brown as well. I don’t think that will make much difference though. The Eels showed a lot of class last week and will soldier on. The Slippery Ones for me.

Tigers vs Warriors 55-45 @ Campbelltown
The Tigers won comfortably last week against Manly. They’ll be hoping for solid games from the “Tricky Trio” of Farah-Fawcett Majors, Bubbling Brooks and Marshall Dillon. OK, the Warriors absolutely smashed the Doggies but what do we read out of that? Was it a class effort or did a poor showing from the Dogs exaggerate the result. Hmmm, not sure. The Warriors haven’t beaten the Tigers away from NZ in about 5 years or so and I reckon that trend might continue here. Tigers for me.

Let’s finish off with another “Song of the Week”…

Let me tell you right now, as sure as the sun will rise in the morning, I know for a fact, 100% and without a shadow of a doubt that very few will like this one but I’ll whack it up anyway. Personally, I reckon this is a “banger” but I might be a little biased ‘cos the guy singing the lyrics has been a favourite of mine for decades. Yes, decades. You’ve been forewarned (ha-ha).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmJWD9jQvhc

OK kids, good luck with your tipping and may your team win by 40 points! Until next week people. Cheers.

Last week the Girls got 3/8, for once Dad got more than that. her are their tips this weekend
Rabbitohs - (we went for the Dragons last time)
Raiders - (No reason just a guess)
Broncos - (they are my favorite team) :(
Sharks - (sharks are more deadlier unless they play the Knights it seems)
Panthers - (Panthers run fast, and Knights slay dragons that's boring)
Manly - (because they are purple) (so masculine)
Eels - (they win sometimes) (ain't that the truth)
Tigers - (I don't like the face of the Warriors)

In the 70s my parents ruined my life
They sold our unit in Clovelly and bought a wog mansion in Panania.
I asked where the hell is that ? It’s near Bankstown you gotta be kidding me. First day new school they all had mullets even the guys. The first boy asked me for a durrie the first girl asked me for a root. You gotta be kidding me.
The teacher walks in wearing a bulldogs jersey and says put your had up if your a dogs supporter and everyone raised their hand except me
The teacher said who the hell do you go for? I said the roosters I heard boos and felt 25 pea shooters hitting me simultaneously
He said why? I come from that area,my mum supports the roosters,my dad supports the roosters even my brother supports the roosters
So do I. He said so you copy your parents what would do if your mum was a hooker your dad was a drug dealer and your brother stole cars? I said well then I would be a bulldogs supporter

The cardiologist says my heart is good the swelling could even be a ms related matter & I might even see it go away when cooler weather comes , they say unless anything changes then come back in 2 - 3 years time to be checked again but they are going to recommend I have an ultra sound on my leg that I mainly get more swelling in too make sure I don't have any clots , my parents both have had clots my mum before she died & my dad still does & he can never get rid of his so good news for me today at least ...

I hope that you haven't got clots.
I've been there & done that, if not for my GP I wouldn't be here today. As a result I'm on blood thinners for life. I don't mind too much but more often than not, I need a blood test every week. I just look at it that if this is for my benefit, I have to put up with it.
Bye for now, manyana.

Good joke mate, an oldie but still worth a laugh. Being a QLDer I'm not too sure what it's like in western Sydney. We only hear of nightly shootings, bashings and drive by murders from the media.
Surely they are not all Bulldog supporters? or are they?
Baggy Gee
You will get in some hot water for that post. But being an interested person can you please post answers to your questions. I'm particularly interested in Toula and her mother and the wax thing #7
The rest is I believe normal behavior in west Sydney

Tiger H - After I was in Naples, Sorrento, Isle of Capri and Pompeii back in 1982, I told a bloke on our bus that if ever anyone wants to learn to drive, Naples is the place. In those days, parking was all over the shop/place.

I do hope mate that you have a nice time and totally enjoy yourself. Get to a football (round ball code) match and treat yourself to how crowds get behind their favored club. In Italy it is Juventus (Juve) for me. CR7 - Christiano Ronaldo now plays with them. In Paris it is PSG (Paris St Germain). I'll be thinking of you over there.

Cheers and keep well - Big Pete

Good evening Butcher - mate, only that you said you were in the hospitality industry, you very much remind me of Pabdul and his dialect of phrase. Both follow Roosters and I'm wondering what is happening to TAD, whilst I type/speak.
How much longer r u at The Wolgan?
Cheers, keep well and keep the twisted humour coming . It livens the place up.
Big Pete
