The first to ten points wins. There are prizes for first, second and third place. Every time you tip a winning team you receive a point. Three strikes (i.e. three losing tips) and you are out. You can't tip the same team more than once, unless your tip loses. If the team you tip loses (one strike), you are allowed to tip that team again. The competition commences this week (round 8). In the event of a tie for any of the prizes they will compete in a tie-breaker to determine the prize winner.
All registered tipsters are eligible to play, and we have a few spots open for non-tipsters so if you would like to get involved do so quickly as spots are limited. Just add your tip for round 8 in the comments section on this page.
First prize – $75 to spend on NRL merchandise (prize donated by Mark Ashford)
