Footy player with fish shop now our tipster

FORMER Warwick Cowboys reserve-grade lock Peter Price is the new owner of Roddie's Fish and Chips and is tipping for the first time this week.

He played two seasons for the Warwick Cowboys and backs Brisbane Broncos in the NRL.

With the NRL teams having the weekend off, he goes for Australia to beat New Zealand in the Anzac Test and for City to beat Country.

Price reckons Australia will win easily.

"The Kiwis will miss Benji Marshall. Australia will be right if Johnathan Thurston has a good game," he said.

"Greg Inglis had a real good game on Friday night and I would play him at fullback. Billy Slater would have to go on the wing as Inglis does a brilliant job back at fullback."

But the selectors have stuck with Slater at fullback and Inglis in the centres.

In the City/Country game, Price is a Queenslander so doesn't care who wins.

"I am happy to see them bash each other so they are out of the New South Wales side," he said.

After one week away from NRL footy, everything will be back to normal next week and Price reckons his team Brisbane have a good chance.

"The biggest threats to Brisbane will be the Bulldogs," he said.

"I don't expect the Tigers to be near the top at the end of the season but reckon the Titans might be there."
