The A Game - three strikes competition

Here is the page for the competition run by our buddy 'a'.

Hopefully he will drop in and remind us of the rules, but from memory you have to pick one team each round (to win) and it's a race to ten successful picks. If you get a game wrong that's a strike, and if you get three strikes you are out of the competition.

And another twist. If you have tipped a team and they've won a game you aren't able to tip that team again.

Sounds easy? It's not. No-one got close to ten last year.

Results after round ten – 9 points and 1 strike

  • The Butcher (Tigers, Sharks, Rabbitohs, Storm, Raiders, Dragons, Roosters, Broncos, Cowboys)

Results after round ten – 8 points and 2 strikes

  • Tipstar (Warriors, Sharks, Rabbitohs, Storm, Roosters, Raiders, Sea Eagles, Knights)
  • a (Warriors, Sharks, Rabbitohs, Storm, Dragons, Roosters, Sea Eagles, Knights)
  • Bradapple (Warriors, Eels, Storm, Dragons, Raiders, Roosters, Sea Eagles, Rabbitohs)
  • The TideHead (Warriors, Sharks, Storm, Roosters, Rabbitohs, Raiders, Knights, Cowboys)

Note: teams in brackets after your name cannot be tipped again.

Results are round ten – three strikes and eliminated

ScottyH, Manyana, Brayden, Jonkulator, Aelid16, Brad S, Johnny Awesome, Baggy Gee, Hardyards, Rocket Ryan, Catdog, Niftyone, BigPeteBx, Mary S, Tigerholic, Dragons Fanboy, Walby, Steel Panther, Islander, Buzz105, Footy Chick, Rick, NuLIF3, MGM

Just add your tip in the comments below.

Im pretty sure I know who the butcher will be picking to take out the comp this week, well done mate very well deserved.

In the case that he somehow does not take out the comp I will back the sharkies this week please.

I'm out of the competition now, but just to say a big thank you to you 'a' for organizing this and letting be involved.

Best of luck to everyone who's still in the competition

Awesome comp "a" glad I was a part of it, not so glad that I am out already.
To those still in the hunt, good luck, and to you "a" thanks again.

Ok what were the chances that at this stage of the comp the 2 most likely winners this week eels and eagles were still at my disposal
Though it’s NRL so no game is a certainty
Most who are left have already picked the eagles so the eels may be their best chance so to leave the door ajar
If I take the eagles and the eels win we will all be tied for a day then you will need to go against manly and get on the titans for the upset
Or they both could lose and the Sharks get up and Bradapple or Bradbury if he pulls it off will come from nowhere
So Manly thanks A.

Okay for my comp this weeks my choices came down to either Eels or Raiders and I would like to say thanks to the Butcher for taking Manly cause it would make me look bad if I went for Raiders over Cowboys so I can go with Eels over Panthers

So yes it’s Eels for me this week
