  1. WELCOME This round kicks off on Friday 14th July. There's just six games to tip this coming weekend as Bulldogs, Eels, Roosters and Storm are on byes Everyone reading this is welcome to enter this weekly competition which runs throughout the season. New or occasional entrants are welcome to join us. Entries are allowed each week up until the kick off of the first game in the round N.B. I am posting Rounds 19 and 20 early as I will not have access to the programs I use to produce them during this period. ROUND 19 QUESTIONS: 1. Poll Competition: Our regular poll comp looks at a different aspect each week. This week we're looking for the big scoring teams: How many teams will score 30 or more points in R19? - enter in the poll itself at the top and put your answer in your posting. Now the main event of the week: 2. Match tipping Competition: Name the 8 winning teams in NRL Round 19 3. Points Competition: How many points will be scored by all the teams added together in R19? 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. 4. Home Win Competition: How many HOME wins will there be in NRL R19? 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: An animated awards will be given for the winner(s) of each competition question ... at some point hopefully... please be patient ... as explained above. Match tipping scores are being added together as the season is progressing to produce a Tipsters' Ladder which is pinned to the top of the forum topic list page The best of luck to everyone this week. Enjoy your Rugby League! Graham
  2. Am I right in thinking just the four in your top post can enter this round of the comp, that is, that this is the start of the final?
  3. It's up to the rest of us to measure up. Australia can already be beaten occasionally.

  6. Any media rumours that Sezer and DCE would swap places Titans/Manly appear to have been quashed. Sezer has home on Gold Coast and seems settled. The criticism of Sam Thaiday at Broncos has set rumours of him parting with that QLD outfit to move to the Titans where he might be happier and give some experience to the GC side. Thaiday is out of contract at Broncos at the end of this season. Wests Tigers prop Matt Lodge has signed with the club until the end of 2017.

  10. Here then are our well deserved awards for the Round 18 tipping competition. Why don't you join us for the Round 19 competition?
  11. Thanks for the updates Irish Saint.
  12. Didn’t see those two results coming.... Warriors beating Broncos in Brisbane and Tigers beating Dragons. Busy morning here.

    NRL - Run to the finals

    Raiders only ones with a faint chance of sneaking into 8th from outside. I seem to think they play Warriors in R25. Canberra will be hoping for a Warriors collapse and a chance to get 8th place in that game. They looked good for most of today’s game. Croker’s kneecap injury makes their job harder though. Sharks v Raiders... Sharks surely too strong for Raiders?
  14. No I’d prefer proper international series against proper countries rather than a cobbled together outfit playing and losing to Australia.
  15. That's how it goes! Hard luck Irish St
  16. That’s enough, I’m exhausted after all this footy. As Popeye says "; "That's all I can stands, cuz I can't stands n'more!"
  17. Full time Canberra 38 - 12 North Qld
  18. Cowboys just done for all ends up. This game and the season.
