Today Chris T and I are going to cash in my (third) prize for the City Diggers Tipping Competition: see Shakespeare and footy tipping. The prize turned out to be a $25 bistro voucher and a bottle of house wine.
The Rabbitohs of course are no longer in the 2016 competition, but my hometown team the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks last night got themselves into the Grand Final!
That really is something! The club is fifty years old. They have never won a Grand Final in all that time, The last time they played in a Grand Final was 1978, not counting 1997 when they were runners-up in the inaugural – and only – grand final of the ten-team Super League competition.
They will play either Melbourne or Canberra, depending on the outcome of tonight’s game.
Turned out to be Melbourne.
