***** WELCOME *****

... our second tipping competition the new season.

.

At least we've now had some games played giving us chance to start gauging teams' form and potential.

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

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 This round's first game is on FRIDAY

ROUND 2 QUESTIONS:

*Poll Competition:

Which Round 2 game will produce the smallest margin of victory?

- 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 2

*Points Competition

How many points will be scored by all the teams added together in R2?

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 R2?

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:

Round022014NRL_zps9f306baa.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)

What about a Bulldogs v Sharks prediction Kiwityke?

 

 

I'm guessing Dogs from you Away wion total - can you confirm or deny this please.

So two close calls to start with this week. Both could have gone either way.

 

Brisbane and Manly sneaked in with the wins though.

 

Fingers crossed for tomorrow!

Dogs it is Kiwityke.

 

Seems at the moment the worst thing to be is favourites going into a game!

 

Well done Dragons, that's a great victory for you.

 

Storm had ar tough encounter against a very strong and talented Panthers outfit.

For Storm it was another skin of the teeth win.

Storm fans were holding their breath, crossing their fingers and willing Peter Wallace's final penalty goal kick miss its target after the final hooter had gone.

Now that was rain! How did you get on in that BR?

Hope you had a head to toe waterproof on!

 

There were some odd reffing decisions in the game. I don't include in that Billy's 10 minute sin binning. The ref judged it as a professional foul.

So far we've had:

Just 1 away win out of the five R2 games played.

Storm V Panthers had the smallest winning margin so far - Just 1 point difference.

As for tipping, the top scorers are those with 3 right so far.

 

Shock of the round so far for me was the crumbling of Eels in their game against Roosters. I tipped Roosters to win but never thought it's be by 52 points!

Yes Points total, thanks. I dont know what i was thinking going for the Eels, and i wont be sucked into them again as many were last year. 

Ricky Stuart got out while the going was good. Flogged by 50 in only the second week. Geez.

Listening to the Storm post match interview seems like the Storm were waiting for calls to release a player standing up and never got the call and got pinged by the Ref. I know myself Reffing is tough and making signals sometimes is very very hard when tired even though you may shout it verbally. I think a coupe of poor decisions this week was Lussick swinging arm on Hargreaves. How on earth can all the Match officials not see it and it just is put on report? Also in the Storm v Panthers the Ref called last tackle on tackle 3 in the 2nd half. I think the NRL really need to sort the match officials out and I hate this on Report rubbish when its clear whats happened. We have video Refs as well as others in the stand that can assist the match officials. 

 

Know its early days but Titans, Warriors Eels and Tigers proving once again you cant trust them to be consistant. Panthers have improved alot from last year as have the Dragons. Cowboys look like nearly men again. Broncos look stronger this year but not sure they have the power to make the top 4. The usual suspects again look to be Storm, Sea Eagles, Roosters, Bunnies, Doggies with the rest hoping they can join them in the 8.
