Our NRL 2020 Expert Panel Tips – Rd 5
The Traitor pulls ahead… but will her victory be short-lived?
We’re almost a quarter of the way through this (now) shortened season, and the contest between our experts is heating up fast. The Mantis closed The Hunter’s lead in rd 4, and now has his sights set on The Traitor. All of our tipsters have some interesting upsets on the cards this week – and it’ll be thrilling to see how each plays out.
Ultimately, one tipster on the panel will reign supreme… who do you think it will be?
“Just like a mantis, I’m cool… calculated… precise… and deadly. Each of my tips is the result of hours of waiting, thinking and plotting. I leave nothing to chance. There’s a reason I won last year’s competition, and it’s the reason I’m going to win this one too. NRL is more than just a sport – there are numbers to consider, weather, injuries, countless variables. I’ve thought of it all. Good luck getting past The Mantis.”
“They call me The Traitor because I’m unaffected by the supporter’s bias that might sway others’ tips. I was born in New South Wales but root for Queensland and the Storm… winning to me is everything – the only thing – and the same goes for my tips. I’m ruthless in my pursuit of the top spot, and I’m ready to show these boys that the NRL is now a woman’s world.”
“I’m the king of Hunter and Bligh’s sports world. I’m The Hunter. I’ve been writing tips and expert analysis for as long as the other two combined. There’s no way they’ll even come close to touching me. I’m the only true expert on this panel – and I’m happy to let my tips speak for me. My reputation precedes me. My historic success is all I need to know that I’m the best. We’ll see who’s laughing at the end of the season.”
