Last split round I got 0 from 5, so I hope for some improvement

NRL Tipping, Round 16: The Roar's expert tips and predictions - Origin a huge disruption but no excuse for some teams

Kohli might be the only current player to threaten Tendulkar’s century of centuries. He currently is heavily weighted towards ODIs but his total (excluding T20i) is 79. If he plays as long as Sachin did, he still has 4-5 years to chase it down.

Sorry, I don’t agree. They get a statue for 4th in a competition? What if they win the Olympics or what if they win the next world cup? What do we give them then? Kids looking up to them should be aiming higher than a participation award.

Their impact on women’s sport is by no way changed by having a statue. With so much media coverage the Matilda effect is still valid, statue or not.

I hope they win so the Suncorp statue will make more sense.

Credit to James Anderson for his longevity, and he has a good record, but he isn’t in the same league as McGrath and Ambrose.

Jimmy the GOAT? - or the perils of aggregate totals

I looked and they were ahead by more than 10, I thought I was going to get at least one tip right….

NRL Round 13 Talking Points: Origin skewers regular season (again), but Dragons and Cowboys aren't complaining

0 from 5 in my tipping this week. Still leading my comp as half of the tipsters also had zero. Damn Origin.

Teams definitely paid overs for Maxwell and Warner in this version of the IPL.

I read that Manly were baulking at re-signing Seibold because of Brad Arthur, he could reunite with his son too. Tough on Seibs though, Manly looked good for the top 4 but injuries have complicated things. Go Manly!

Just helped my wife take the lead in her tipping comp and then a round like this comes along. *sigh*
I’m stuck on Rabbitohs/Eels and Warriors/Dolphins. Going for Eels and Warriors but with no confidence at all.

There was also the ‘hair puller’. Gee i miss their commentary.

Mug lairs, thugs, grubs, nigglers and smug buggers - who are the players you really love to hate?

Amazing longevity, but he probably should have retired a few years ago. On the other side, Broad probably should have gone two years longer.

Anderson names retirement date after McCullum tells him it's time: 'It's been an incredible 20 years'

When I grew up if someone called you a name you beat them up and then that was it. No snitching to mummy. Please lets go back to better times to solve name calling.

NRL News: Integrity Unit investigate alleged Walker and Mitchell racial abuse, Crichton left in lurch

Manly fans can breathe again.

Blues Origin predicted team: Another blow for Blues with Best joining star quartet on the sidelines

I think for a half to succeed, having an experienced partner can help. Brooks is arguably playing better with DCE beside him. Ezra Mam is on fire with Reynolds beside him. It’s tough making a youngster the number one half in the team.

Luke, Lachlan and Lewis: If NRL clubs can't find 7s, it’s because they created a lost generation of halfbacks

Imagine if Shane Bond hadn’t retired early, there would have been some records begging there.

The possibiliy of Jofra Archer's career coming to an early end will rob cricket of a bowler with so much talent

Over-rated and the Bulldogs seem to go together…Anasta anyone?

Don't believe the hype: Why did Bulldogs fork out big bucks for the most overrated player in the NRL?

I really thought we might see a different Titans under Hasler, but it looks unlikely at this stage.

NRL Power Rankings: Round 3 - Eels seal real deal status, Bunnies need Easter miracle, Tigers terrrrific, Titans in tatters

I am satisfied with Manly’s tight loss. Starting the season with Rabbits, Roosters and Eels, they would have easily been 0-3 given the recent seasons struggles against teams usually in the eight. Good signs for a Manly fan.

NRL Round 3 Talking Points: Blowouts, bad bunnies, and bunker babies are back

After 2 in round 1, I got a perfect round 2. I never saw the Dolphins winning as a boilover nor Manly. Go Manly!

The Roar's NRL expert tips and predictions - Grand final rematch, busted Bunnies, hot-and-cold Dragons, Storm half strength

I am liking the look of Manly. So far they are doing well against the better teams which has been a problem in the past few seasons. Go Manly!

NRL Power Rankings: Round 2 - Manly rising rapidly, Dragons crash back to reality, spotlight intensifies on Rabbitohs

Don’t do it, just let it die. The Olympic and World Championships are more meaningful than games with the best in the world missing.

Malaysia offered a fortune to step in as Commonwealth Games host after Victoria's withdrawal

A bit rough. Do people born after 2000 not know about sticks and stones….?

Don’t forget Mr Flat Track Bully, David Warner.

Round 9 Sheffield Shield wrap - Is anyone putting pressure on Marnus for a Test spot, and is 'poor Will' done?

One innings does not equal form. Marnus got 6 in the second innings. It was a blip.
