It’s not easy to get a feel on form at this early stage

Still feel confident about picking winners at this early stage of the NRL season?
You have every right to be concerned after a number of surprise results last weekend.
The Eels were some chance of rolling the Warriors, but by 30 points?
The Broncos seemed to have the measure of the Sea Eagles before switching off for seven minutes in the second half.
The Roosters usually make good starts to a season, but were blown off the park by the Rabbitohs.
And many would argue that a Sharks win over the Titans was impossible after a week of turmoil.
No beating around the bush.
The Titans, Tigers and Rabbitohs should get the cash at home, and the Cowboys proved in Round 1 that they could make life tough for the visiting Storm.
However, how can you overlook the Storm with confidence?
The Eels-Bulldogs, Dragons-Broncos, Warriors-Roosters and Sea Eagles-Knights encounters can go either way if last weekend is any guide.
You can go over and over all four games until the cows come home and you wouldn’t be criticised no matter who you ended up picking.
Go with the bookies, go with your heart or go with your head?
It’s a fair dinkum lottery.
We’ll hold our breath our settle on the Bulldogs, Broncos, Roosters and Sea Eagles.
Yes, nominating three away teams is a risk.
