    **Official NRL Tips Discussion Thread**

    Bulldogs v Dragons

    I can't see the Bulldogs losing this one. They have too many star players and are always usually good starters.

    Bulldogs by 6-12

    Tigers v Eels

    The Eels have bought well during the off season and I think there line-up again has too many stars for a team that many pick will be battling it out with Souths for the Wooden Spoon.

    Eels by 12+

    Roosters v Souths

    The Roosters will get up nice and easy for this one, although could be closer than most think, with Finch out for a few weeks and no Brad Fittler.

    Roosters by 12+

    Sharks v Panthers

    Altough the Sharks are tough to beat at home the Panthers have a settled side and will be up for the challenge.

    Panthers by 6-12

    Broncos v Cowboys

    This will be a very tough game, although I'm tipping the Broncos by more than 12, with the sell-out home crowd and Thorn & Hodges returning, there are too many points in the Broncos.

    Broncos by 12+

    Warriors v Manly

    Manly have bolsted their forward pack with Kennedy & Kite, but the Warriors are tough to beat at home and with Price & Wiki they have an even stronger forward pack also.

    Warriors by 12+

    Storm v Knights

    Johns will either be better for the year off, or rusty. I'm going with rusty and the Knights have proven they are ******** unless he is at his best.

    Storm by 12+

    Bulldogs v Dragons

    The doggies should be far too good and will hit the ground running IMO

    Bulldogs by 13+

    Tigers v Eels

    Eels have recruited well and Benji Marshall isn't playing for the tigers


    Eels by 1-12

    Roosters v Souths

    No brainer until Souths prove themselves

    Roosters by plenty

    Sharks v Panthers

    Gone with the panthers but expect it to be close

    Panthers by 1-12

    Broncos v Cowboys

    Broncoes will be fired up and will be too good IMO. Go Brad Thorne

    Broncos by 12+

    Warriors v Manly

    My team the Warriors. Expecting big things but at the same time holding my breath. I feel a big win coming up though in an attempt to bury the demons of 04

    Warriors by 12+

    Storm v Knights

    Too good with Johns. But I think it will be close

    Storm by 1-12

    Both of you picking the Warriors by 12+? That's very promising, as I really hope they'll have a better season than the nightmare of 2004. So with a couple of new signings you think it'll make all the difference?

    my tips

    Bulldogs - they won but i tipped them as everyone did just about..

    Eels - Tigers are really the only team thats gone backwards, could get the spoon, so eels will beat them. Eels by 11-20

    Roosters - pretty straight foward, souths are at full strength and sould put in a good showing. Roosters by 1-10

    Sharks - I rate them this year, hav speed out wide, classy halves and a top line goalkicker, will make the eight and could upset penrith in week 1. Sharks by 1-10

    Broncos - I dont see the cowboys doing as well as last year, brisbane are too classy to lose this one. Broncos by 21+

    Warriors - hard to split these two. ive gone for the warriors cause they are at home, but its an early contender for the first golden point game of 05. Warriors by 1-10

    Storm - I cant see the knights challenging this year, Melbourne are a classy team with plenty of points in them and should do it comfortably. Storm by 11-20

    My tips (a little late but what the hell )


    Eels- I'm just biased here...Tigers could have God playing in the centres and i would still tip the Eels

    Roosters- Wing at 5/8 is a very good move...hopefully Stuart will leave Finch out of the side all together when he comes back (except againt the eels ), South will put up a big show thou in the season opener.

    Panthers- Very tough to pick, but panthers just shave the fishies in the halves battle which will set up the outcome of the match.

    Cowboys- Cowboys will continue their push from last season with a first up win over the broncs, bought well with Webb and Thurston. Hannay and Bowman will stop anything that moves out wide!

    Warriors- Wiki is an absolute beast, he will have a great impact on the young kiwi players. Jones might actually play alright too, now that his pack will go FORWARDS and not sidewards throwing one handed passes all the time.

    Storm- The storm have one of the best halves pairings in the game, while the Knights are even more of a one man show then before now.

    I can see the Cowboys matching last years performance or falling just short. They will be better off with Thurston as they will now have a quality 5/8 to play with Sheppard and get the ball out to that quality back line, with Sheppard, Thurston, Norton & Bowen in the key attacking positions they will be hard to stop. The addition of Carl Webb will also be a bonus. They have the team to win the premiership, but only if they can get through post Origin period and keep their stars on the field.

    Well i wont worry about the Bulldogs game but here are my other tips...

    Tigers - People will say im biased, however for those who dont follow us we have a top lot of juniors coming through at the moment and although Benji is a big loss, Look out for Liam Fulton and Bronson Harrison, both stars of the future... Tigers by 6

    Roosters- Forget all the hype Souths are again battling for the spoon with the Raiders... Roosters by 20...

    Panthers - Panthers are my early favourites for the title this season... So they should win pretty comfortably..

    Broncos - OMG i can't believe im about to say this but i think the Broncs are a serious threat this year, in past years i've brushed them but i think this year they are dangerous.. Should win by 10...

    Warriors- Could be 60-0 either way or 60 all.. A lottery, Warriors on the home ground advantage...

    Storm- Storm are a top 4 side, whilst Newcastle are a side who could be a Spoon Challenger.. If joey misses half the season or more they will win the Spoon...

    They are a happy team at the moment and are actually in a positive frame of mind from what I have seen, unlike last year. And yeah the four new signings will make a huge difference. Price and Wiki are good hard forwards and their leadership will be the biggest factor that we will gain. Also Fien at hooker should be interesting. I think he will be more than adequate
