Well we thought Round 7 would be a bit tricky and it proved as much.
Then the Cowboys come back and beat the Raiders after trailing by 18.
Onwards & upwards, let's have a look at this week.
Raiders and Rabbitohs on Thursday night and Sticky Stuart has flicked Josh Papalii out of the 17 this week. Massive!
Canberra have to improve surely but they picked a bad week to try and turn things around, Rabbitohs should win this one, $1.50 is a good price for them.
Friday night is the Storm & Sharkies.
Will Chambers returns and just in time to take on his old team, Storm far too good there you'd think before the QLD Derby.
Call me loyal or maybe even stupid, but I think the Broncos are a chance here, the Titans have a few out so if they can stop David Fifita, they might have a chance.
New halves pairing yet again, I'll take the Broncos with a 12.5 start and pray for some divine intervention perhaps.
Danger game on Saturday for the Panthers I reckon, Manly are flying since Tommy Turbo came back, this might be close early before Penrith assert their dominance in the second half.
Then it's the Bulldogs & Eels, surely the Dogs can't do it again can they? Doubt it.
Eels should win that before the Knights take on the Roosters, Newcastle weren't awful last week but the Roosters should have too much fire power.
That's all pretty straight forward up to now? Perhaps the Broncos might be the only one we'll be sweating on.
Then it gets a bit trickier, Cowboys are on a roll and could cause a mini upset on the Warriors. I'd like to think the Warriors can get away with it but I am not sure, I'm just not sure and Jason Taumalolo returns for the Cowboys. I'll take the Cowboys.
Then form says the Dragons should beat the Tigers who couldn't win a chook raffle at the moment but I've got a feeling they might rally this week, Robbie Farah is back there barking orders.
Maybe they lift? We'll tip the Dragons just to be safe.
Last few weeks of our suggested bets haven't been too kind, let's try and get the balance humming this week.
Starting Balance = $100
Current Balance = $178
$100 multi: Rabbitohs, Storm 13 +, Panthers (-7.5) & Eels (-11.5) @ $4.43.
