Footy Tipping 2018 – NRL Round 2

Is there anything more humbling than NRL tipping?
Apparently round one was the first time in something like 100 years since the sides who filled the last four positions on the previous year’s competition ladder all recorded wins in the first round of the next year.
So, that’s what it’s like to be part of history.
Anyway, lets embrace the glorious uncertainty again.

Newspaper Shortage 

Took a while to get a newspaper today.
They seemed to be sold out everywhere.

State Of Origin Game 3 2017

Victory feels better when you’re sitting in Queensland. Two years in a row now.
And you even get to see the after game broadcast.
Honestly, I doubted they’d do it. But it was such a dominant performance in this final game.
No Jonathan Thurston, no Greg Inglis, no Matt Scott, no Darius Boyd, no Anthony Milford.
Coach Kevin Walters made tough calls on selections for game two and three and got them right.
New South Wales will wonder what they have to do.

It was an enjoyable game. 

Most enjoyable, really. 

I expect there’ll be a lot of happy faces around tomorrow.

Footy Tipping 2015 – NRL Round 2

Typical NRL weekend.
Four out of eight.
Most disappointed with serial pretenders North Queensland and New Zealand, disappointed that Manly collapsed in a most un-Manly like fashion.
Anyway. Onward.
