WELCOME TO NRL Round 8
.

The kick off to this round is on Friday 3rd May

Everyone reading this is welcome to enter this weekly competition which runs throughout the season.

New entrants are especially welcome
Whether you've taken part before or you fancy having a go this week for the first time you're guaranteed a warm welcome.
Entries are allowed each week up until the kick off of the first game in the round


ROUND 8 QUESTIONS:

*Poll Competition:
Match points totals in R7 were up on the previous two rounds. Let's look towards the opposite results this week:
Which R8 game will produce the smallest total of points when both teams final scores are added together?
- enter in the poll itself at the top and put your answer in your posting.
The poll is anonymous so we can't give you credit unless it is in your predictions post.

Now the main event of the week:


*Match tipping Competition:
Name the 8 (that's EIGHT) winning teams in NRL Round 8 2013


*Points Competition
How many points will be scored by all the teams added together in R8?
This is a competition in itself and will act as a tie breaker for the match tipping comp if necessary. This is used as the decider when necessary so do give it a go.


*Away Win Competition:
How many AWAY wins will there be in NRL R8?

In rounds where the game is on the road and played at a neutral venue, the team named first in the fixture will be regarded as the home team for the purposes of this competition.

Fixtures:

Animated awards will be given for the winner(s) of each competition question.
Match tipping scores will be added together as the season progresses to produce a Tipsters' Ladder which is pinned to the top of the forum topic list page

The best of luck to everyone.
Enjoy your Rugby League! B)

We're well under way here. Both Friday games played to a finish and both going the way we almost all predicted.

A beefy performance from Bulldogs and a game of surges from the Bunnies.

Good to see James Graham back playing again. He had a good first game back, though Tigers weren't at their strongest. Benji looked a bit off the pace for parts of the game.

Storm were hoist by their own petard. Raiders played the kind of footy that we have come to expect from Storm. Big strong forward team play - consistent an systematic, and creative backs that bring points from both set moves and individual brilliance.

Hats off to Raiders who surprised all us tipsters.

Storm could have taken this if one or two moves, especially little kick throughs by Cronk had come off. IF. BUT, they didn't.

Four very close calls over Saturday and Sunday. SAharks nicking it by one point in extra time caught us all out again.

Warriors though held on - just - to help us tipsters out.

There were five equal topscorers with 6/8 : Thirteenthman, Barney, Southstander13, Stoney100 and Rugby Female
The tiebreaker came into play and the closest of the five to the points total in Round 8 was Southstander13 who is therefore our Champ this week.

The Away Win goes begging this week as none of us correctly predicted 5 away wins.
Our Poll Comp had a clear winnerBourbon Rat who picked the Eels v Cowboys game as the one that would see the lowest number of points scored.

By the way I took your tip for Knights v Sharks as a predicted draw, Blotto. I needed to make a decision before the game started and seeing as how both teams were there in your tips with neither emboldened I took that to mean you expected a draw. How close that game was to a draw too!
