The Tip Sheet – 2022 Ep 34: Origin I, Junior Rep Awards & Platinum Jubilee Eels

The Tip Sheet is also available on Spotify and iTunes!

With each and every week of the 2022 NRL season it seems like there is more and more to talk about. It certainly keeps The Tip Sheet loaded up with content with this episode looking at the fallout from Origin I, the massive turnover of NRL coaches and the upcoming platinum jubilee Monday game against the Canterbury Bulldogs.

The show kicks off with the boys breaking down the Jersey Flegg and NSW Cup action from the weekend. While the Flegg struggled with errors, the Cup ran riot over the Mounties and lifted themselves into 3rd place on the ladder.

Behind The Mic has a little bit of everything this week. From the Kambosis fight to a stumbling loss from the NSW Blues and finally the coaching carousel that is the NRL. The latest on the Ryan Matterson negotiations leads the news section while both Sixties and Forty20 recap the Junior Representatives Awards gala night.

A full strength Parramatta lineup are the capstone of the previews as the both the boys tip a strong victory over the Bulldogs on Monday.


As an additional note, The Tip Sheet will be transitioning to a triweekly format from next week onwards. The instant reaction podcast will lead off the post-game content while the mid-week will be split between Behind The Mic, NRL news and Parra Stories with the third episode capping things off with the weekend previews.

Lot of content there, well done. I watched some Devin Haney fights and thought George might be a bit one dimensional, Haney is a clever boxer/fighter. The bloke Tim Tszyu will fight is the same but a heavier puncher. Qld totally aimed up, mentally very strong, I thought between the 55-70 minute mark NSW errors interrupted a threatened momentum shift, the Blues were finally warming into it but instead kept Qld front running.


BDon, t thought the same. The passes being thrown that didn’t need to be. Players running away from supports. Cook dashing to his left then running in circles.
But I have to credit Queensland for their mentality. They just kept turning up in defence, making that one extra tackle that shut down a play, or forced an extra pass or error. It created the frustration.


The contract has a rematch clause in it but don’t be surprised that George gets paid big step aside dollars so Haney can fight in a much bigger fight.


Interesting. Paid big coin to not fight. Sounds like easy money.


Yep, only in boxing, but it definitely happens.


Not good!


Al kudos to the tasha gale ladies but 10 of them making it in team of year dosent say a lot for the state of our potential nrl squad !!!!!!


Reward for second on the table finish. Hopefully better seasons for the fellas next year.


Great podcast guys. The coaching merry go round has been in full swing. Sixties nailed it. All those coaches had prior’s at their previous club. Madge had a player revolt at the Rabbits and could barely win a game before he left. He had a great squad to win that title. Green similar story…. Barrett and Brown red flags were obvious. I really think what BA has achieved is Gold (and Blue). He hasn’t delivered a comp (yet) but you can see we are clearly in much better shape and it’s just a matter of when. If we follow the… Read more »


Cheers Pete, there was plenty to cover. We will move to the three pods next week.
Great point about the Origin media narrative and so true.
As far as I’m concerned, as long as we continue to play finals football we will keep ourselves in the mix for a title.


Great listen here Sixties, Forty and Spiro; and i liked the information around Flegg and Reggies; and also the discussion around Rankin and his future. Thanks for the information on the coaches too and yes all of these coaches had a history and a lot to be said about the board who hired some of them. I can see why Wests hired Madge and to me he was good to come in but he or I assume he had the chance to purchase players and i know he inherited some issues there too. To me Wests should be a strong… Read more »


Cheers Milo. Is there a team as confused about their identity as the Tigers? Play out of multiple grounds, with dilapidated Leichhardt lauded as the spiritual home, yet the massive junior base is around Campbelltown, and the centre of excellence is at Concord. Only half of the joint venture is financially viable.
I agree. They could be a powerhouse, but they show no inclination of changing their ways and their “power brokers” run off to the media to leak confidential discussions.
