You may review my earlier triumphs and tragedies here. An example:
Tipping — off!
This round of the NRL began promisingly as far as my entry in the City Diggers Tipping Competition went. But then came Saturday! Now for your information I chose:
Thursday: Roosters — yes!
Friday: Storm — yes! And then the rot set in as I chose Broncos, but how close was that!
Saturday: Alas! Titans, Sea Eagles (shame on me, I know!), Raiders…
Today: Tigers, Dragons. Surely I must at least equal last week’s dismal three correct?
Update: Well, it did get worse! Panthers are celebrating a 36-2 thumping of the Tigers; Dragons 16 – 34 Eels. Woe is me!
Meanwhile, there was another competition in Western Australia, and I got that one right, as did just about everyone else.
This year it appears that City Diggers is not having a tipping comp [NOT SO!**], so I am moving my legendary skills down Burelli Street to Steelers. I am told there is a good cash prize there — and a prize for coming last! Mind you, failing to tip any winners is next to impossible!
For reference purposes: 2018 NRL Draw. The season starts on Thursday:
Thursday, March 8 Dragons v Broncos, UOW Jubilee Stadium, 7.50pm (AEDT)
Friday, March 9 Knights v Sea Eagles, McDonald Jones Stadium, 6pm (AEDT)
Cowboys v Sharks, 1300SMILES Stadium, 7.50pm (AEDT)
Saturday, March 10 Wests Tigers v Roosters, ANZ Stadium, 4pm (AEDT)
Rabbitohs v Warriors, Perth Stadium, 7pm (AEDT)
Bulldogs v Storm, Perth Stadium, 9pm (AEDT)
Sunday, March 11 Panthers v Eels, Panthers Stadium, 4.10pm (AEDT)
Titans v Raiders, CBus Super Stadium, 6.30pm (AEDT)
Come March and the signs have now gone up. Diggers is having a tipping comp after all! Be interesting to see what the participation rate is. I’ll do both Diggers and Steelers.
