    Well the upsets kept coming over the weekend and who knows what may happen this week. It's certainly tough for all us tipsters.

    On thursday night the round kicks off with a Rabbitohs v Roosters blockbuster. The Roosters continue to impress and with a few out for Souths, the Roosters win it for me.

    Friday night looms as good night for the fans with the Panthers and Knights kicking it off at 6pm. The crowd size will be almost as interesting as this game between two sides who need to click.

    Next up the Broncos play Canberra and what a delight that should be. Brisbane were kind of unlucky against Melbourne, but were also their own worst enemies too with a little too many things going on off the ball.

    Super Saturday should produce 3 excellent games. Manly v Canterbury, the Eels v Cronulla and the Titans hosting the Cowboys. It's a tough 3 games to pick and all could go either way and GP in one wouldn't surprise.

    On Sunday the Wests Tigers who will have a new coach face the red hot Melbourne Storm. On any other day I'd go for Melbourne, but teams who dump a coach usually play up a few cogs and I'm expecting the Tigers to do just that and upset the Storm.

    The 6pm game is the easiest to tip. The Dragons will belt the Warriors by over 30 points.

    Enjoy your footy this weekend.

    We should be 3-0 but instead are 1-2. Only ourselves to blame for both losses. It's only round 4 but we have to win on Friday. Starting the season 1-3 against four top 4 contenders is unacceptable.

    I think we will win because Canberra never win in Brisbane but not by much.

    A commentator said during the week that Brisbane are the best 1-2 team he's ever seen after 3 rounds. I tend to think the Raiders are the best 1-3 team I've seen in a long time. Two field goal losses to the strong Queensland sides and they ran into a sharks team in rare form.

    Didn't get to see much footy yesterday, actually none. Foran playing today apparently, so hope that helps.
