The Tip Sheet – Finals Week 2 Preview feat. Bernie Gurr


The Tip Sheet is also available on Spotify and iTunes!


Bernie Gurr returns to The Tip Sheet alongside Sixties and Forty20 to breakdown Parramatta’s tough loss to the Melbourne Storm in Week 1 of the finals before running his eye over the sudden death clash this week against the South Sydney Rabbitohs.

The lads tap into Gurr’s font of knowledge on the game to explore the key match-ups across the park on Saturday night and look at how the Rabbitohs will attack Parramatta’s new look backline.

Once Bernie signs off, Sixties and Forty20 take a second examination at the do-or-die clash with the ‘charm’ of their rustic stylings and note that they both feel shockingly optimistic this week when all things were considered.

great stuff again good to hear your voices your mate Joe


Cheers Joe, you’re a great mate and a great supporter


A heap of content there, many thanks guys. I’d be happy to see the tactics suggested; fast & aggressive line speed, big mins from Jr & Reg and our kicking game needs to be on (find the grass and no 7 tackle sets given).
Go the Eels


Thanks DDay. There was plenty to speculate about, that’s for sure


Thanks guys, thoroughly enjoyable once again. Good luck to everyone on Saturday. Should be another cracker,Parramatta 30-22.


We just want around 50% possession Eggman. Gotta control what we can control.


Great episode guys. Such a fresh change to follow people that are positive toward the club. Bernie surprised me with his in depth knowledge of the game and I really enjoyed listening. If 50% of the stats go our way then we can win. Go eels


Thanks Sparky. As supporters we prefer to consider why we can win, without ignoring the challenges that are present.


I regard Souths as quite traditional in their play – run around a, halves linking, big pack, good kicking game. That’s solid team play.


Was thinking the same sixties. Impressed with Tom Burgess, he was probably the No 3 brother 5 years back, but is now a walking testimony to the notion of developing your strengths and simplifying your game. And presto, play with this competence and confidence, and your error count shrinks. Maybe, for one game, I’ve just put the jinx on him.


So do you guys know much about Dunster? And can he cut it in a game like this?


Sparky, I’ve watched quite a bit of him, through the grades and at training. He’s very good in his carries and has matured and added muscle to his frame since last season. This has made him better in the contact. It’s a tough debut, but this is what every kid who plays footy dreams about.
