Thanks for setting up the NRL comp again e/cat  I`m signed again... 🙂

Storm, Bunnies, Panthers ??? (personally' I think last year with that roster was their 'do or die' year') appear to be the top contenders going into 2021... with maybe the Roosters cycling down?.....

then again, I could be completely off, and just comfortably numb on my meds 😋

Managed to join - although it didn't want to let me join up as kmcrosby78 (said that username was already used ..... yes, by me .....) so instead I am now kcros58 ....... (I feel like I've aged 20 years ....... 🙄). 

No. You’re twenty years younger. And you probably couldn’t join because I told them to ban you from the comp. Didn’t know you’d find a work-around.

I’m not scared of losing to a six year old KM. I’ve already resigned myself to it happening.

Ok, that`s Round 1 done and dusted......

Round 1 results

Thursday, March 11

Storm 26  vs 18

After 18+ season, does any one actually tip against the Storm, in Round 1?

Friday, March 12

Knights 32 vs 16 Bulldogs

Error riddled Dogs performance, and conceded too many penalties (5-0). Knights 18-10 half time.

Bronco`s 16 vs 24 Eels
Broncos 16-0 half time. Losing 3 players didn`t help their 2nd, 40 minutes effort, nor did giving away many ‘6 again’ calls….  In the 2nd 40, Parra got their act together and ran in 24 unanswered points to claim the 2 comp points

Saturday, March 13

Warrior`s 19 vs 6 Titans
Warriors 6-0 half time. Possession 49%... completion rate 91%.
first game of the season and the Warriors turned out with one of their best defensive efforts

Rooster`s 46 vs 4 Sea Eagles

Hmmm, what can one say….  who doesn`t love Manly getting thrashed?

Panther`s 24 vs 0 Cowboys
Panthers 8-0 half time
Cowboys possession 39% - 61%... completeion rate 59%- 66%

Sunday, March 14

Raider`s 30 vs 12 Tigers

For most teams it always proves hard to beat the Raiders their home ground. interesting stats for this game;

half time 6-6.

Possesion Raiders 49- 51%. Completion rate Raiders 68-76%. Effective Tackles Raiders 87-88%. Errors Raiders 14-13. Most of the other stats, Average set distance Raiders 36-34, kicks, penalties Raiders 5-6…
By the stats the main difference was, the Tigers saved most of their mistakes for the 2nd half, and eventually got run over.

Dragon`s 18 vs 32 Sharks, Netstrata Jubilee Stadium, 6.15pm

Half time Sharks 14-0
Result was expected by most tippers… high error count for the Dragons, the constant tackling practise they endured may hold them in good stead for playing lower teams this season.

with the broncos, cowboys and titans loosing their first rounds its gonna be a wooden spoon sort of tipping year for me for sure....

How Dare You Say "Again"!

Yep, it is going to be a long year for us Qld diehards @Drop Bear. I have the added complication that I can’t tip the Sharks (the whole peptides, Gallen, FifIta, Flanagan thing). The Broncos showed plenty of promise and would have had a different second half with a full complement. The Titans looked like they were all introduced to each other right before kick off, but will improve. The Cowboys on the other hand were just aweful and heading for the spoon if they don’t do something fast. Great to see the footy back though.
