I'm liking souffs and the knights.

AB how big is the loss of Gidley? I think they still beat the broncos.

Manly kill Cronulla, Storm kill Titans. I like Tigers over Dragons. Cowboys fingerbang Sluttamatta.

Raiders get another win over Chookfuckers

Penrith and Souffs is a sucker game

Kiwis handle the fully sick dogs, bro.

Need to find out about Gareth Ellis and Matt Cooper for the Drags tige game

Brisbane SHOULD beat the Knights. The sharks absolutely butchered every possible way last game. Gidley is a big loss.

I have a funny feeling about Gold Coast, i think they beat Melb.

I think the Dogs are up against it this week. Looking at the over here.

Cows should beat the eels in a high scoring game - over.

If SKD is back for the Roosters i like the over.

On the Panthers game, need to find out more on the injuries.

Sharks will beat manly on a Monday night.

Don't see the Drags getting near the Tigers

Like the Broncos after the Knights shitfest last week

Have the same feeling as Rostos on the the Titans, Just doesn't feel right that Storm will win for some reason

Cowboys will rape and pillage the Eels

Finding the Warriors Dogs a hard one to call

Like the Raiders over Roosters, could be some bounceback factor here though like the Cowboys after 1st round. Would have thought Roosters would dig deep to get that 1st home win

Panthers Rabbits is meh, don't think I'd go near that unless I played a total

Wonder if Manly are due for their 1st loss but think they may be too good for the Sharkies unless the Sharks do the reverse of last Sunday

Saints favoured over Tigers are a joke even if they win.... getting too much respect for home advantage

Gidley out means fuk all, he is so overrated and error prone. Everyone has forgotten lockyer is gone already

NQ to fuk parra up the arse

Would love to see Bulldogs Warriors, can't bet it though

Manly looks good to also rape some shark and overcome the carny hype

Gidley is a one or a nine, not a six.

They've missed his leadership in the past, but have Bedsy now who will cpatain this week.

I think Newcastle are almost bet of the round

I hadn't taken a trend line to it, no.

But now that you point it out, I might make it interesting and go for 500

 

Seriously, I couldn't give a darn. Hardly any of my bets so far have been for a full unit, a lot of the 'additional' plays have been speccy's on margins at $3+ etc.

Initial thoughts:

St George: the fact that they're favourites makes me like them even more. They were good against Newcastle, but I think the hype of that game and the occassion caused them to be flat last week. They got behind, heads dropped and nothing went their way. Tigers have done nothing to impress me so far.

Newcastle: Gidley's out, but so is Lockyer apparently Parker is also a massive loss for them. Newcastle's record over Brisbane in the past few years suggests they don't fear them at all. Junior 'a Newcastle winger's worst nightmare' Sau is also out, which helps. Pick is a gift imo.

Melbourne: Haven't started playing yet, but have had another gear to go to when they've needed it. Not sure about the spread, but they'll win.

Cowboys maybe, as they're at home - but that's about all they have going for them. Parra tried their guts out on Monday, and may be worth a ping at that line.  

New Zealand maybe, but that should be a great game.

Raiders: Rooters tried to go around Penrith last week and couldn't. They won't go through Canberra.

Riff: They looked really good last week. Structured in defence, and when was the last time Penrith won a game with their defence?

Manly: But Monday is a long time away.
