WELCOME TO NRL 2014
... and our first tipping competition the new season
.
Hope you had an enjoyable few weeks rest!
Everyone reading this is welcome to enter the competition and the ones that follow each week throughout the 2014 season culminating in the Grand Final

which will be played on Sunday, 5th October at ANZ Stadium in Sydney.
Whether you've taken part before or you fancy having a go this season 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
NB The first round's first game is on THURSDAY!!!

ROUND 1 QUESTIONS:

*Poll Competition:
Which Round 1 game will produce the biggest margin of victory?
- enter in the poll itself at the top and put your answer in your posting.


Now the main event of the week:

*Match tipping Competition:
Name the 8 (that's EIGHT) winning teams in NRL Round 1 2014


*Points Competition
How many points will be scored by all the teams added together in R1?
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.


*HOME Win Competition:
How many HOME wins will there be in NRL R1 2014?

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:

Round012014NRL_zps97dc4f4e.jpg

Your reward for entry?

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 will be pinned to the top of the forum topic list page

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

Teams announced though plenty have filled up the 19 places in the list so some last minute changes and omissions likely on the eve of NRL 2014.

Could be hanging back to get the benefit of our great wisdom, Barney! :D

 

Do you reckon the Thursday KO might be catching some out?

I've now put THURSDAY on the thread title.

Roosters

Dogs

Panthers

Eagles

Cows

Saints

Warriors

Titans

 

So 5 home

 

Big points under the new sped up game.

There you go Barney two out of the three regulars I think you were thinking of are home to roost.

Great to see you again RF and Kiwi.

Welcome Oikee.

We're all in the same boat to start with just under two hours to the start of the first game of the new season -

Bunnies v Chooks - what a cracker of a game in prospect

Welcome back BR. Barney was missing you.
Picking Rabbitohs was shrewd. Well done those who also picked them. They just steamrolled the rocking Roosters out of the way. Hey though what's this with the judiciary getting involved before the game's over?
