State of Origin means the NRL split rounds begin.
This impacts tips when considering missing players and which teams have had breaks.
Only a point or so from a perfect NRL round of tips last week. That’s about as close as it gets.
AFL has its last round before the byes start.
But at least the players all get uniform breaks.
For some reason I thought I’d tipped Adelaide last week. I must’ve changed my mind.
Oh, and I’m tipping Queensland in the State of Origin.
Without any great confidence.
I’m hoping the QLD forward pack hold their own with NSW.
