Two games completed and only two correct tips from us all. That's 2/30.

I'm starting to think like Rugby Female said last week: pick all the teams you think will win then type out all their opponents as your tips!

Don't worry then Marv, welcome, like the rest of us, to tipping NRL Season 2014 style!

 

I'm sure we'll all do really well in the games that are left.

Well thanks Sharks, that's another fine mess you've got me into.

The comprehensive victory over Warriors has done most of us no good.

Well done to Bourbon Rat and RL Winger the only two to pick Sharks.

So overall that's four correct tips in total out of three games (4/45).

 

Come on Panthers in your chocolate and white shirts, you can do it!!!!!

Give us a win!

Welcome back Marv. Good to have you with us.
The problem these days is not can we see any NRL, it's now a matter of can you fit it all in. The 8 match a week offering from PSTV is great though isn't it?!!!
This week's comp is now underway as the first game has kicked of. Rabbits Warren is in full flow. Enjoy.

Fantastic mate, a real shame they lost their championship coverage but the NRL coverage is heaven for RL fans. I have games on my planner to watch from weeks ago there is just so many games!!

Yes the reorganisation seemed to put an end to their Championship coverage.

We didn't get money out of their coverage but we did get benefit from being on TV.

The way Premier went to lots of different clubs was good. They didn't just stick with top teams.

Melbourne V Gold Coast

" NRL has confirmed wrong decision to award penalty which cost them last Sunday's game... "

 

 

Think that's my hail to step away from the ###### that is the NRL for a while :(

Melbourne V Gold Coast

" NRL has confirmed wrong decision to award penalty which cost them last Sunday's game... "

 

<_<  OK bad decisions happen. That doesn't excuse them though. You'd think having two refs (Ben Cummins, Brett Suttor) on the field would make matters better.

 

What a bloke Greg Bird turns out to be.

 

Melbourne was furious after the Titans received a last-minute penalty for a stripped ball when replays showed Gold Coast’s Luke Douglas appeared to drop it cold.

Storm coach Craig Bellamy labelled it a “disgraceful decision” and a “real bad call”.

Bird broke the deadlock with a 32m penalty goal to snatch a 28-26 win at AAMI Park.

He goes on to social media and pokes fun at Cooper Cronk by aping his words.

Childish .

Not only that he got the winning points from his own player's loose carry.

Grow up Bird.

Thanks Cowboys, I wouldn't say you rescued my poor tipping week (again) but at least you doubled my points score and let me catch Barney up.
