NRL Footy Tips Rd 11

Round 11 includes a trip for the New Zealand Warriors and Canberra Raiders to New Plymouth in Taranaki in the North Island of New Zealand. After recent trips to Wellington, Christchurch and now New Plymouth it’s obvious why the Warriors dropped Auckland from their name some years ago.

Tipsters and Parramatta fans will probably have to wait till Monday to confirm whether Kieran Foran will turn out to improve the Eels’ chances against the Storm. Either way it’s one of the toughest games to predict along with the result of another likely thriller between the Cowboys and Broncos.

Here’s my tips (in capital letters):


COWBOYS v Broncos

TIGERS v Knights

WARRIORS v Raiders

SHARKS v Manly


BULLDOGS v Roosters

Eels v STORM

Last week: 4/8

Total: 51/80  Coach says “Sure, three of them were near things but we have to learn to win the close ones”

NRL Footy Tips Round 4

by Warren Boland

There are no Thursday night game as Easter begins. Round 4 has two games on Good Friday, two on Saturday, only one on Sunday but three on Monday.

Here are my tips to win:

  • Bulldogs
  • Broncos
  • Raiders
  • Roosters
  • Panthers
  • Warriors
  • Eels
  • Sharks

Last week: 3 (and a draw) / 8.  I say “unlucky”- two games decided by 1 and 2 points. Coach says “Mentally weak. 80 minute game. Own it. Toughen up”

( Total:  15/24     Note: Of 8 incorrect tips so far, 6 were away teams who lost. That has influenced me to tip a chastened Roosters at home to pip the Sea Eagles who have a short turnaround )

Happy Easter!
