NRL ROUND 23

I have just eight words for those contemplating a punt this weekend .. THROW EVERYTHING BAR THE KITCHEN SINK AT MELBOURNE!

The Broncos are in complete and utter disarray, despite what they'd have you believe. Wayne Bennett has completely run out of ideas (for the fourth year in a row) and has reverted to his referdex of excuses as another cataclysmic end of season capitulation looms. "We're creating plenty of chances ... we're just not executing" is a line all Broncos fans are utterly sick and tired of hearing from Bennett, but we know it's all we'll hear until the team bombs out on the end of another long losing streak in 2006.

So on Sunday, it's Melbourne by plenty .. and don't expect Brisbane to trouble their opponents tryline too often.

$1.50 is the sale of the century when it comes to a Storm victory, and you could even say the same about the line of -5.5, because Melbourne will cover that in the first five minutes and won't look back.

Yeah yeah yeah.

A full strength Manly were always going to cover that ridiculous line.

Re: NRL ROUND 23

I'm on Brisbane again.

Call me dumb, call me a :retard:. call me a lunatic.

They owe me lotsa monies!
Seriously though, how will they react to being underdogs and playing a team that should smash them?

I'm going with my gut feeling on this one.
Not my heart, but ownly my gut feeling.

My signature sucked so I made this one instead.

Re: NRL ROUND 23

GG .. It's gonna be a smash up .. I've been watching Brisbane too long to know this current group just can't produce the type of miraculous form turnarounds other teams can. Their confidence is at bootlace level, they have no recognised hooker or half .. quite simply they're a rabble .. It pains me to write the above (!) because I'm a Brisbane supporter and have been since day one, but sticking one's head in the sand and pretending problems don't exist is something I don't subscribe to (even if the Broncos seem intent on doing it). IMO Brisbane is the worst team in the competition at present. I think their problems are so deep rooted they'd battle to beat a Qld Cup side.

I know hindsight is exactly that, but that was a fantastic punt BB .. Earlier in the week I heard how the Eagles were setting themselves for that game and how fired up Ben Kennedy was ect and told myself to tip them but of course ended up chickening out and taking the Knights instead .. So hats off to you Bolar .. !

Re: NRL ROUND 23

Sensational pick SF, but you're a week too late .. Souths played the Panthers last Sunday! The bet would've won too!

Penrith host the Roosters tonight ..

Re: NRL ROUND 23

Preview Broncos vs Storms -what a ripper of a game to be honest my gut feel is Broncos can come away with the win cos if they come out to play n Hodges n Tate decide to turn it on then it will be big trouble for the Storms,main ingredients in this match is if Hodges n Tate go off,Broncos follow n win but if shut down,then it could be a massacre!!!Broncos still have alot of representative players that have pride left in them,also with this game who wants to win it more,Storms are on top by a mile therefor is this the lost they had to have???Something tells me it could be a downer for the storms!!!

I can't possibly think of anyone who is going worse than North QLD at the moment.

In fact I won't bet on this match.
Not because I don't want to though.
As I said this is purely a gut feeling for me.
It wouldn't surprise me to see them cop a smash up but something is telling me it won't happen.
