Our NRL Expert Panel Tips – Rd 16
A perfect rd 15 for the Mantis, and it’s a one-point competition at the top…
The Traitor remains on the top of our tipster ladder, and with the same picks as the Mantis she’ll keep that position for another week… but in this two-horse race, the final positioning is still anyone’s guess. One thing that can be said with certainty is that (barring a miracle comeback) The Hunter is all but down for the count, he’s made some Hail Mary picks this week in the hopes of keeping himself in the running – and it’ll likely spell the end of his season.
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.”
