Brisbane over Bulldogs @ $3.50

Dogs are pretty much stuck in 2nd place... 6 points from 1st, 6 clear of 2nd. They are not going anywhere.
Therefore how bad will they want this game?

Cannot remember the last time Brisbane were given 8.5 points starts. Back to pre-1992...:lol:...Maybe 1999 when they were last half way through the season.

Yes I am crazy, and in denial and all the rest!!!! :help:
But we will see! :D

Bulldgos didnt have anything to play for last week and we saw the performance they gave then, I think its a bit of wishful thinking on your part, but best of luck :)

I felt the same way with Storm last week and they proved me wrong - so agree.

Persistence has paid off for you GG! You're a genius! :hatoff: Meantime I'll be eating crow for a few days after all but writing off the Broncos for 2006! But I'll happily eat crow til the cows come home if they continue to play tough and win .. :yeah:

Couple of leans for the weekend ..

Cowboys vs Newcastle .. total points under 43.5 .. Stack of marquee players out for both teams .. tough to see where either team is going to get a heck of a lot of tries from ..

Manly vs Souths .. total points over 46.5 .. Just a game that seems likely to have a lot of action .. If it's a dry Sunday at Brookvale you'd have to tip Manly to score a few tries .. and Souths are usually good for two or three as well ..

Nice call gg,persistence does pay off n im glad you didnt miss out on them :) It makes you wonder what was going on in the last 6 weeks,if they beat Parra next week will they all of a sudden become Premiership Favs,this season's twist turns are just warming up i guess!!!

I was thinking about that.

I won't be on Warriors at all and I hope Melbourne smash em...
Also Storm have won 10 in a row (this season alone) at home.
Is resting your players really the best thing?
Maybe play them almost "as bench players" but resting players can be dangerous as you often see with teams coming off the BYE.

In saying that though, the best thing for them could be a loss this weekend, to realise you can't get complacent.

Anyway GL!

Cowboys over Oldcastle @ $2.05

These are just my hopes/wishes/thoughts:

Cowboys lose tonight their season is over - mathematically/physically/mentally/emotionally/mechanically. :rolleyes:

If they win tonight all of a sudden they find themselves 2 points out of the eight with 2 weeks to go.

Canberra and Newcastle have a BYE in hand, therefore they will both be on 28 points.
However the Cowboys can also finish on 28 points, as they play Newcastle tonight, then Souths and Parra in R26 with Thurston back.

Canberra's remaining 2 games are against Melbourne and Sharks... definately no certainty of winning either.

Newcastle play Cowboys tonight, then Penrith next week... who are also in the hunt.

Add to that Parra play Roosters tomorrow, Brisbane, then Cowboys.. they are no certainty of winning more than 1 game there.

St George are also part of this as they play Wests, Sharks and Roosters. Should be able to win 2 of those and seal the deal but they are in shit form.

Another thing.. if Manly lose against Souths tomorrow, they are no guarantee of being there next month as they play Bulldogs, then Melbourne to finish off.

I guess the whole point of this is.. there whole season is riding on this match.
Surely playing up here in front of 20,000odd and against Joey :retard: less Knights they should be able to pull this off.

Virtually no team outside the top 2 are safe. Maybe Brisbane also.

In my opinion the Cowboys can finish 5th/6th/7th.

This is just a quick write up of what I had down.
Then scheduled maintenence came up and I lost everything. :mad:

The Sharks v Panthers game was amazing!! Sharks choke on a 22 point lead in the last 20 minutes. Panthers score the winning try in the last 3 minutes.

I don't even have words for this shit.
12 points after 6 rounds, 4 points for BYE's and they currently sit on 22 points.

Fuck you NQ for wasting my damn time all season supporting you. :retard:

Liking under 44.5 for the Saints v Tiges and also under 49.5 for Manly v Vermin. Line has moved 3 points for the Manly v Vermin game which is making me a little suspicious as I can't recall a line moving that much unless it was to do with wet weather. So far been unable to find out if there are any players out either.

Kennedy the only notable 'out' for Manly .. if it's a dry day in Sydney the score could be anything in that game .. might hit the over 46.5

For some reasons i like the Dragons-10.5 this arvo as best bet over West Tigers,also Parra line looks just as good aswell,actually all favourites in my mind should win comfrotably n cover!!

40 units on St George Dragons -10.5pts over West Tigers - Too much on the plate for the Tiger Cubs this arvo,Gasnier/Cooper/Head/Barret/Hornby = Big trouble for the Premiers!!!

40 units on Parramatta Eels -8.5pts over Sydney Roosters - Hot Eels will get the job done under J.T who's is a freak of a coach,unbelieveable turnaround,more then 2-3months ago these guys couldnt even beat an English 2nd divison side who wouldve been playin away aswell,lol!!!Jarrod Hynes go you good thing!!!Also throwing a couple of multi's with Eel ML aswell!!!

Good luck - Other lean on Manly -12.5pts over Bunnies!!!Mainly has a stingy defence!!

Funny the total for the Manly game is now 50.5 at $2.00. I'll hold off on unders for now and see if it goes up further. Manly are not exactly a free scoring team only averaging 21.66 points per game.

That total does scare me Gucci for some reason its soo high :confused: i thought it would be around 42/46 pts total mark??Rabbitohs have some try socring freaks,i could see Rabitohs posting something like 10-16pts to be honest while Manly from 18-30pts,thats my honest opinion!!Were in the same mind thinking on the same page :)

Souths aren't vermin. :sad:


I like all three dogs today. Especially "vermin" over Manly.

Don't think I'll play any though.

gg being a Roosters supporter I generally refer to Souths as vermin for stealing some of our junior teams in the 1950's.

He put $80 000 on Brisbane to cover the line! (+10.5) ;)

He also had Newcastle outright and Parra (-9.5) in the parlay.
