Phil Gould’s Round 20 tips:
Broncos v Sharks
“I just think their game is more suited to the tight Finals style football this game might produce.”
Tip: Sharks by 4
Cowboys v Knights
Tip: Knights by 8
Bulldogs v Wests Tigers
“Tigers in a nice rhythm at the moment. Provided their HIA players are passed fit, they just have too much more to play for than the Bulldogs.”
Tip: Tigers by 20
Sea Eagles v Panthers
“Both teams were very disappointing last weekend. Manly defeated Panthers at Penrith only a few weeks ago. There wasn’t much in that game so hoping Panthers can turn the tables.”
Tip: Panthers by 2
Rabbioths v Eels
“Rabbitohs were stunned by the enthusiastic Tigers last weekend. If they learn the necessary lessons from that performance I’m expecting a big bounce back from the Bunnies.”
Tip: Souths by 18
Storm v Raiders
“Storm on a nice winning run at the moment. Not winning by big margins, but their game control is second to none.”
Tip: Storm by 7
Titans v Warriors
“Big game for the Warriors. They should win but you always worry about their travel bug. Tohu Harris makes a huge difference here.”
Tip: Warriors by 6
Roosters v Dragons
“Both teams are going very different to when they last met in the big ANZAC Day clash. Roosters vastly improved and I think they have more points in them than the Dragons.”
Tip: Roosters by 10
