WELCOME TO NRL Round 8
.
The kick off to this round is on Friday 25th April.
There's no game on Monday.
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:

... the opposite of last 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 2014


*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:

Round082014NRL_zps293f96a5.jpg

 
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)

Well I've looked at your picks and your new system is hidden to me Oikee. It must be really devious, unless it's just picking out the ones you think will win - always risky in 2014! :D

The thing is when you look at these fixtures and sense what is likely to happen from previous performances, a number of this week's fixtures look too close to call!

Dragons/Roos, Broncos/Rab, Cowboys/Eels let's face it could go either way. Of course they'll go one way or the other :-) unless we start predicting and getting draws.

If in doubt, go home as they say, so I've picked just two aways because I like the way Eels and Panthers play.

 

Here then is my selection of goodies for R8:

Good luck everyone and enjoy your rugby league B)

Likewise. I'm waving the white flag.SmileySurrender.gif

 

If I was a Broncos fan I'd be a bit upset. I reckon they were hard done by near the end when a penalty was awarded when ref saw a lost ball as a strip. Those two points won the game for Bunnies.
