NRL Tips – Round 17, 2019
Between Souths Logan (12th of 14, 3-12-1), Brisbane (14th of 16, 6-9) and Queensland (lost both men’s series and women’s game), rugby league is at serious risk of no longer speaking to me.
Fortunately, there is a light. This Sunday, kicking off at 3PM, India will play Colombia at WJ Scott Park in Holland Park.
(that’s in Brisbane)
(that’s in Queensland, it’s the capital)
(it’s the state north of the Tweed)
(we lost on Wednesday night?)
While it sounds like a more likely match up in soccer, I understand that it will in fact be a rugby league game. The most recent episode of the Chasing Kangaroos podcast had a heap more detail, which you should be listening to.
I’m tentative about going, mostly to see my second ever rugby league international but also out of curiosity as to who turns up. It is up against a Souths Logan versus Norths game at Nundah, which I may choose to go to, or I may choose to do neither and stay home and watch the NRL.
Here are the tips for this weekend’s action:
National Rugby League
Intrust Super Cup
Due to a combination of work, State of Origin and trying to get some other stuff finished first, there’s no commentary to go with the ISC tips this week (with one exception). It was either that or do them late or possibly not at all. And given that the Jury was 7/7 last week, maybe you should just focus on that?
It’s also worth nothing that this is Indigenous Round, coincidentally playing the return fixtures for round 3’s rivalry round.
