 George Fairclough RIP

and  Richard Glover (Kiwityke) of this forum - New Zealand Warriors and Batley Bulldogs fan

Both dear friends and regular contributors, sadly missed.

We remember too Simon Cooper (Lounge Room Lizard) who sadly passed away during this season. Simon contributed to this forum and was an ever present in our annual Fantasy Team/SuperCoach competition. RIP Simon.

Tempus fugit 
It seems like only yesterday that we were starting with our Round 1 tipping competition and now here we are with our blockbusting Grand Final occasion just a few days away after a most unusual season. 
Everyone is welcome to take part in this competition
This season has once again been a friendly and close fought affair.
Thank you to everyone who has been a part of it. Your friendship and company has been much appreciated.

QUESTIONS:
1. Name the WINNING TEAM ... Panthers or Storm
2. Tot up the two teams predicted scores and give us your predicted match POINTS TOTAL
3. Poll question this week: How many tries will be scored altogether by the two teams in the game? 

pick one of the options above - answer in the poll above but also in your posting.

So here's to a great competition, and may the best tipster and team win! 
Good Luck everyone - there'll be an animated award as usual.

George was a very good friend of mine for many years. He was a great supporter of rugby league and Wigan and Storm in particular. He lived in a suburb of Melbourne. His sudden death a week after his 65th birthday was a tragedy for his loving wife Irene and his family. Richard lived just outside Auckland with his wife and was a season ticket holder of New Zealand Warriors. He was in his eighties when he died. Richard was originally from Batley and continued to support Batley Bulldogs, annually sponsoring a match, often when they played my UK team Featherstone Rovers. Barney and I are good friends and we met up with Richard and were guests of him at the game. Lovely man!

Both George and Richard were regulars, posting on this forum and taking part in the tipping competition every week.

Lounge Room Lizard would have been pleased to see his team through again as well.

Thanks for the reminder of Simon.  It was an oversight by me not to mention him. Simon was a regular contributor to these forums and had entered a team in our NRL Supercoach competition and before it our NRL Fantasy Comp from the very start. RIP Simon who battled to fight cancer over a long period., and left a young family behind him

I have included Simon now in the first post above.

Cheers folks, & well done Cameron Highlander with the amount of tries scored. Hows that pick the margin eh, the only thing that was missing was the 1 point field goal that I thought at one stage of the game the Storm would of scored as in another tipping comp I picked the score at 27 to 20 with a Melbourne Storm win.
