Colourful media personality Darryl Brohman is our guest tipper for Round 19.
The Brisbane-born Brohman had NRL stints for the Penrith Panthers and Canterbury Bulldogs, while also representing Queensland at rep level.
His NRL career spanned from 1979-1987, which included 114 games and and 12 tries. Brohman’s two seasons at Belmore were premiership-winning campaigns, and he played a key role in the Bulldogs’ 6-4 win over Parramatta in 1984.
He is perhaps best known for his post-playing career, where he worked in the media across several radio stations, and most notably Nine Network’s The NRL Footy Show.
Brohman is an ambassador for Starlight’s Children Foundation alongside Storm star Billy Slater, who help brighten the lives of sick children and their families.
