Cronulla and North Queensland will both be missing five stars who are in State of Origin camp this weekend but all clubs are affected in varying degrees.
Round 18 has only four matches. Here are my tips (winners in capitals):
EELS v Roosters
BULLDOGS v Tigers
PANTHERS v Sharks
RAIDERS v Cowboys
Last week: 6/8
Total: 85/126 Coach says he who laughs last laughs longest.
