Tips round 2 

Round two is shaping up as harder to tip than the first with lots of games that I believe could go either way.

But the round should also start to reveal some of the form teams in the competition.

After last week I'm starting to question whether Manly will again be a force to be reckoned with this season - losing stalwart Steve Menzies and one of their best in Steve Bell they have to be considerably weakened.

Then again they just won the World Club Challenge (no easy feat) and Brookvale, aka The Fortress, is a fairly formidable home ground.

Good for the Warriors chances that they play Manly this weekend while fullback Brett Stewart is still out through suspension.

I can't understand how he gets suspended by the NRL for being drunk at an official function, when clearly Anthony Watmough was just as pissed and clearly worse-behaved at the same function yet escapes any official punishment whatsoever from the NRL.

Go figure.

Anyways, tips for the week:

Tip 1: head to head

$10 @ 115.6

Tip 2:

Souths/Souths halftime/fulltime
Titans +5.5 points
Warriors +4.5
Raiders -6.5
$10@ 15.6

Tip 3:

Melbourne 12 and under
Cowboys head to head
Raiders head to head
Sharks head to head
$10 @ 11.7

Tip 4

Warriors +4.5
$10 @ 6.8

Tip 5

Bulldogs 13+
Raiders 13+
Cowboys 13+
Warriors 13+
$10@ 120.4

Round 1: -$50.

Interestingly, the official NRL site code for the Warriors is still "NZW".

Just can't bring themselves to say "Vodafone", eh?

Even after all these years....
