Ball Bingo - finals tipping competition (week two)

Greetings football fans

The Thinker is opening up his mystery box and giving out a few prizes throughout the 2020 finals series.

Welcome to Ball Bingo

There are nine prizes in total, one for each of the nine games during the 2020 finals series. Registered tipsters and registered visiters can enter the comp in all nine finals games (one entry per game). To enter, simply sign in to the website and enter your score prediction in the comments section on the page for each week of the finals (eg. Roosters 20 - Rabbitohs 10). Each week will have its own page in the lounge section of this site. We can also discuss each of the games before, during and after each final on these pages.

The prize winner in each game is the person whose predicted score is closest to the final outcome. Should there be a tie, those entrants names will be placed in my thinking cap and a winner drawn by Ms Thinker. You can win more than once, but I'm hoping the prizes get shared around a little bit. If someone wins all nine, they're a deadset freak and this competition will be renamed in their honour for next season. The final decision on winners is determined by The Thinker.

The games (week two finals)

  • Roosters vs Raiders (Sydney Cricket Ground)
  • Eels vs Rabbitohs (Bankwest Stadium)

The prizes

I have a bunch of NRL club and Origin footballs to give away. Balls will be randomly placed on my bingo card (numbered 1 to 20). Two of those numbers will have two balls on them, and the rest will have one. The winning entrant for each game will be asked to pick a number, and the ball/balls on that number will be yours. You could end up with a QLD Origin football which would be fantastic, or a Sharks football which would be something you could feed to your rottweiler. One of those numbers will have a ball and a $50 NRL shop gift voucher up for grabs. Keep that one away from your dog.

Competition is free to enter and open to registered tipsters and anyone else who has created an account on this site. If you win I will need to mail you the prize, so if you don't want to share your email address and postal details with me (privately), perhaps let someone else win.

Hi Thinker,
My predictions for this weekend are Roosters 25 to defeat Raiders 12.
Rabbits 36 to defeat Eels 16. Still a three way tie on the ladder with footy chic and Jkbubble with me and only a few points to come but alot of others on our tails.
Best of luck all.

Wow, newbie ‘for what it’s worth ...’ Sounds like a shot to the solar plexus if I’ve ever heard one.

Trent Robinson’s up-beat video chat the other day also had a shot to the solar plexus about it - imo.

I think the dagger wielding Raiders, will be left to strike the killer blow later tonight, after those solar plexus hits last week.

I will say something like, 26 to 12.

Parra, I have to say, I think the removal of Sivo and Ferguson albeit through injury, is a bit of an instant fix to their defensive reads. No one defending 15m in from the sideline now, so bunnies will be in for a shock that they suddenly find a brick wall of blue and gold in front of them.

Not having it the same as their last meeting only a month back could throw them. Enough for Jennings, Moses, Brown-D, and Gutherson to counter.

I’m thinking Parra 30 Souths 12.

Buzz105 how wrong you were - (by being right that is). Telling everyone of your losing entry and then you go ahead and hit the Powerball. Too good.

Cheers Coach Potato,

I wish I saved my luck for this weeks Powerball, that $40 million would be nice

Congratulations Buzz105 on the winner & correct score!!

Newbie, Mike T and Guru - you need to read Thinkers comment at the end of Week 1 of Ball Bingo - (if you haven't already done so that is!) as each of you are requested to provide The Thinker with a number between 1-20, excluding 4.

@ Mary
Thanks for the reminder regarding the Ball Bingo. Gotta be honest, I missed that bit and wasn’t aware the Boss revealed the winners on that page. You really look after me young lady. Thanks for that 💖.
