I get that the Tits have a solid history against Cronulla but sometimes the mountain is just too high. Missing both their run on halves is devastating, and their pack isn't exactly a match for Cronulla man for man. The bookies have the right idea

Cronulla 1.36
Gold Coast 3.15

Well done Harry Sack Harry Sack & Morkel Morkel!

I'm going to have to make the point of re-evaluating my Sunday tips. Last week I originally had Titans > Raiders until the news about Ash Taylor broke. Then this week if I had have known Moses Mbye would be back and that Nathaniel Roache would be out, it would have been enough to edge me to the Tigers.

Ordinarily I find Round 2 to be the tough round to tip, not so this year. I thought there were three tough games heading into the week and everything else was relatively straight forward. I didn't expect the Cowboys to suffer so many injuries against the Broncos and thought we'd be in for another 6 points or less type of game. I still favoured Brisbane because I thought they had the most improvement in them, but wouldn't have guessed a 19 point win.

Knights-Panthers was a toss of the coin type of tip, and so I went with the home side. I'm having a difficult time getting a gauge on Newcastle, I thought they'd be like the Knights of old who were always tough at home but went to milk on the road. That could still be the case, but I didn't think much of their performance on Saturday at all. It seems like we're still waiting for the combinations to form after a good year of training together.

Yeah I fucked up Round 1 with the Tits as I meant to change it when I heard Taylor was out, but forgot.

8 from 8 was welcome after what ended up 2 from 8 for Round 1.

Well I forgot to tip in round 1 so I've started 0-8 and went 6-8 round 2.

In the interests of fairness I think everyone should forget to tip next week.
Forgot to tip again.

This tipping stuff is way too hardcore for me. I'm bowing out.

Happens to me every year man. I get on a roll, sometimes I'm even winning and then forget 1 week and it's pretty much a lost cause.
I think a much fairer system would be that every tipster gets two rounds(or two automatic tips weeks)where they can forget to put their tips in and they are given all the away teams as their selection. Still, it's the same for everyone the way it is so...

Stop encouraging mediocrity Huge Huge. In order for the Broncs to win the comp. every 1 percenter needs to be strictly adhered to. Eh 1 percenters start here on BHQ. Getting your tips in on time every round is where it begins.
