Joey's Rd16 tips: A week for the favourites

It’s another big round of NRL action this weekend and club legend Andrew ‘Joey’ Johns once again has you covered if you need help with your weekly tips.

In this series, he will preview and review every single nib Newcastle Knights game in 2020 and will also be providing his tips for all eight games, every round.


Eels v Rabbitohs

Joey’s Tip: Eels

It’s a cracker of a Thursday night match as Parramatta host South Sydney and the Eighth Immortal is picking the hosts to get up.

He believes the Bankwest Stadium advantage will be too hard to overcome for the Bunnies.


Dragons v Titans

Joey’s Tip: Dragons

The Dragons are fighting hard to keep their top eight hopes alive and they’ll need to defeat the Titans this Friday if they’re any chance.

Joey predicts they will.


Roosters v Broncos

Joey’s Tip: Roosters

“Cock-a-doodle-doo,” was all he said about this one.


Warriors v Knights

Joey’s Tip: Knights

The Great Man is picking us to win in Tamworth but doesn’t think it’ll be a large margin suggesting we’re in for a very tough match and will only “just” win.


Sharks v Cowboys

Joey’s Tip: Sharks

Although Joey did mention that this match could result in an upset, he still thinks the Sharks will stay strong and get the W.

A North Queensland loss would go a long way to Cronulla cementing themselves in the top eight for 2020 with four games remaining.


Panthers v Tigers

Joey's Tip: Panthers

Penrith are flying at the moment and sit three points clear at the top of the table and the former Knights legend doesn’t expect that to change when they come up against the Tigers.


Storm v Manly

Joey's Tip: Storm

Both Cameron Smith and Cameron Munster return for the Storm this weekend against Manly, and that was all the evidence Joey needed to tip Melbourne in this one.


Raiders v Bulldogs

Joey's Tip: Raiders

The Bulldogs are still locked away in a scrap to avoid the wooden spoon and they’ve come very close in recent weeks to nabbing an all-important victory, but according to Joey, they’re going to have to spend another week at the bottom.

He’s picking the Raiders.
