Here are the lines thus far, and seems pritty interesting :)

Fri 8 Apr - 7:30 PM [Panthers] Storm Penrith Stadium PICK

Sat 9 Apr - 5:30 PM [Wests Tigers] (+4.5) NZWarriors Christchurch

Sat 9 Apr - 7:30 PM [Dragons] Sea Eagles (+4.5) WIN Stadium

Sat 9 Apr - 7:30 PM [Sharks] Cowboys Toyota Park PICK

Sun 10 Apr - 2:30 PM Eels [B](+7.5) Suncorp Stadium

Sun 10 Apr - 3:00 PM Rabbitohs (+3.5) [Knights]
Express Advocate Stadium

Sun 10 Apr - 3:00 PM [Raiders] (+5.5) Roosters
Canberra Stadium


Man there are very interesting lines here. Teams in brackets are my likely plays.

Tigers have to go to NZ to play, so that could be a factor but i do like the +4.5 start, imo though NZ didnt play that well, they only fired up coz they were gettin out done by Souths.

Manly with +4.5 start thats pritty temptin 2, I guess the bookies are expecting SG to finally win one.

If the Canberra line moves 2 6 or seven im definately gonna to wager that!

My club is penrith, been supporting them for 15 years now. I don't understand why we are favourites, alittle crazy 2 me.

B back on Friday with final tips

I'm playing the OVERS 45.5 in the tigers v warriors game - both teams have proven thus far they can score

tigers defense is still suspect as well

Tigers V Warriors BREAK DOWN

This game imo is by far the hardest game to pick this weekend. Tigers have beaten the bulldogs and roosters in the last two games. Warriors really gave it to souths in the 2nd half last weekend. The game is NOT a HOME GAME for EITHER TEAM, though it could b said the advantage would lean 2 the Warriors as it is in NZ (Sharkey Islands)

IMO the Warriors while they did really outclass the rabbits in the 2nd half their first half performance was rubbish. They fired up because they were losing to Souths, and became the warriors of old.

Hodges from the Tigers is kicking @ 100% while Jones is kicking at around 70% or aboit lower. This gives the tigers the advantage if the game is close ;)

The Tigers strength is within the ruck, fast play will tire the Warriors fowards and give great advatange to their halves. My only concern is that the tigers really havent come up against POWER fowards yet, Bulldogs were without 2 key fowards Mason etc and while rooster do have some powerful fowards you have 2 say that the warriors fowards are a much stronger pack and have the ability 2 off load the ball. If the Tigers Muscle up today i feel they can take the points bczo their running game will tire the Warriors fowards, if they cant contain them well it could be an easy victory 2 the Warriors.

Im Taking the Tigers with +4.5

Im also playing

Hodgson individual points 7-10
First scoing play penalty goal (each way) @$8

and last scoring play Penalty Goal $11.00

BEST of LUCK

I'm going with NZ -4.5 at $2. Skandalis has pulled out of tonight's game making the Tigers already small back that much smaller and IMO the Warriors will run riot up the middle leaving plenty of space for the likes Jones, Hohaia and Fien.

Hot start! 6-0 tigers, i have a 2 small wagers on 6-8 halftime and whatiura 2 score more tries then toopi!!! its lookin dam fine

04-09-2005, 09:24 AM
Mate you are sweet for the Whatuira bet because Toopi is looking very ordinary. His step is fooling nobody.

If the Warriors can hang onto the ball I think they can still get away with his one, they just need to start taking some of their chances.

They should be thanking their lucky stars they are only down 6 because Richards bombed one try and the Tigers probably could feel unlucky that the last video ref decision didn't go their way because that was a super tight call.

04-09-2005, 09:30 AM
I dont see the warriors coverin -4.5 though, Jones cant kick conversions in the wet from out wide ;)

I am loving seeing the Eels get hammered after all my mates gave me hell about Manly getting smashed last night :)

You might be in a bit of trouble Finns, the Roosters are right back in that game. Hope they hang on for you though.

Finns4
04-10-2005, 06:52 AM

Finns4
04-10-2005, 06:54 AM
Well if canberra win and knights lose i tipped 6 of 7 not bad at all ;)

Finns4
04-10-2005, 06:57 AM

sparkus8
04-10-2005, 07:03 AM
Mate that is super unlucky. If you had of told me before the game that the Broncos score 50+ I would have guaranteed that Hunt would have scored at least 2.
