Our NRL Expert Panel Tips — Finals Week 2
There are five games left to be played, but everything still to play for…
With the first week of footy finals behind us, one would expect to have a good idea of who’d be beating who, and who should take home the glory.
But, 2020 is no ordinary year.
All 6 teams left in the competition would be deserved winners of the title, and picking games is an effective coin-toss.
With that in mind, our panel have found this weekend’s action to be one of the toughest to pick yet, and with only one point separating the Mantis and the Traitor, picking these games is all that really matters. Each of the two leading tipsters has gone in their own direction this week, and it could spell doom for one if the other gets both right.
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.”
