    This grudge match of the English captains cost me my first tip.

    C & p comments I made yesterday on a Wigan fans site (Wigan fans obviously taking an extra interest in the Bunnies with Madge being a ex Wigan coach):


    For my sins, I've just been watching the Bulldogs/Rabbitohs game. Well there's been plenty of criticism on here of Wigan's last tackle options of late, but Madge's men are a match for any for grim predictability. Their motto seems to be, keep repeating the same old tired plays in attack, The Bulldogs' defence handles it with ease, so what do they do? They just keep doing it. :(

    Saying that, the Dogs weren't much better for most of the game, until they awoke from their slumber in the last 20. I think it says a lot when the best player on the pitch is Josh Reynolds; hardly the most creative of halves, but a 100 per center who never lacks for effort or will to win. Maybe I shouldn't expect too much from two sides who I have always regarded as some of the dullest in the NRL, but 36000 people paid a lot of money to watch this. I guess Dogs fans will go home happy, but I sometimes wonder how long Maguire will last if these performances continue.

    A reminder, if one were needed, that for all many English fans laud the NRL as vastly superior to our own comp, they can often show a lack of ideas in attack which makes for a very hard watch.

    For a really top NRL game, try setting two Queensland teams against each other.

    With little confidence, I tipped a Souths win as their run-on team was unchanged from the 17 that piped the Pennies last week and they have a heavy hitting forward pack.

    I regret picking Souths as, depending on what happens tomorrow, the best my tips will make this week is seven from eight.

    Yes, Souths have the heavy hitting pack, but I've seen it before that when the come up against another side who are equally heavy hitting, and they can't steam-roller over their opponents, they lack a Plan B. I seem to recall (might be wrong), a similar outcome last season when they played the Dogs. They have a good strike weapon in Johnston, whom I do rate, but don't manage to get the ball to him in space often enough.

    South Sydney forward Sam Burgess is facing a two match suspension for a shoulder charge after he was cited by the NRL match review committee on Saturday.

    Burgess was slapped with a grade 1 shoulder charge on Greg Eastwood in the Rabbitohs 24-9 loss to the Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium on Friday afternoon.

    Burgess will miss two matches unless he successfully fights the charge at the NRL judiciary.
