Probably the hardest round to pick so far. Lots of the games could go either way.

Definitely a tough round for tipping, not that this season has been easy up until this point!
I've actually been going alright. Would have got 8/8 last round if Parra didn't kaka the bed, but should have seen that coming given the 2 teams previous outtings.

I found the first 8 rounds last year a lot harder, it was all over the shop!!

After all of the talk this week about this game and the coaches being asked about the other, the media fueling the feud. This is looking like another day at the office for the old master.

If the Broncos keep playing like this, they aren't going to want KN leaving early.

Broncos torn up
Rabbitohs played well but the Broncos were also horrible.

Bunnies looking good though. Even at the final whistle they looked like they could easily go another 10 minutes. Broncos were bushed by the last quarter...

I don't get what the hype is about with Seibold. He inherited a primo squad at Souths last year and couldn't get the job done yet the Broncos ditched a proven winner to get him.

Bunnies look like a well balanced side with more X factor than Melbourne and their forwards are collectively better than the Roosters.

Isn’t he one of the Bellamy disciples? They all seem to get a coaching gig somewhere down the track.
Broncs looked terrible tonight and the wunderkind didn’t exactly light a spark

Russell Packer is again outside the 17 for the Tigers. That is even despite Chee-Kam serving a suspension. Will be interesting to see how the season now unfolds for him as Cleary supposedly signed him to a fairly lucrative contract.

I've watched him this season, and hes just not really much chop anymore. Matulino isn't far off either, glad we got rid of both of them when we did.

Payne Haas was good on a losing team. Feel sorry for him doing great things and then having the backs balls it up.

Check out his stats so far this year (after only playing 36 mins last year in total) :

1556840355068


Pangai Junior just seems like a bully. Loves running in as the third man when a player is stuck and putting a shot on.

I like watching Souths this year, don't know how you prepare for the likes of Cody Walker in the lead up to playing them.

Yes, based on the belief some of Bellamy will rub off on them. Madge is an example, how many others though?

Apparently 6 of the current 16 coaches have links to him plus QLD coach Kevin Walters, even Shane Flanagan worked with him in origin.
Michael Maguire (Storm assistant coach 2004-09)
Stephen Kearney (Storm assistant coach 2006-10)
Brad Arthur (Storm under 20s coach and then assistant coach 2007-10)
Dean Pay (Storm under 20s coach 2010-12)
Anthony Seibold (Storm under 20s coach and then assistant coach 2013-15)
Nathan Brown (coaching consultant 2015)
