Any Queensland State of Origin win can remove any amount of disappointment about a weekend’s tipping results.
That said, two out of four for NRL and six out of nine for AFL represents an average weekend’s work.
Anyway, let’s see how this lot works out.
NRL (last round 2/4; season tally 54/94)
AFL (last round 6/9; season tally 63/90)
Geelong (can’t lose three in a row, surely)
Fremantle (what a dreadful prospect of a game)
Collingwood (in Melbourne)
