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. It sounds easy, but it isn't.

To participate, just pick a team that you think will win in round two, and good luck.

The Prize

The greatest mind in rugby league will generously donate the prize for The A Game in 2023.

A prize of $50 is available to the tipster who can get to ten. If someone can get to ten without a single strike, I will increase the prize to $80. There can only be one winner, and if there happens to be more than one of you, we will add some sort of knockout element at that point to determine a winner.

Thanks Thinker. Gee, you're a good egg. Go shout yourself a beer after lunch today.

Note: for those of you overseas (more of you than most would think), that prize is in Australian dollars (or equivalent). We'll cross that currency bridge if/when we need to.

Results after the sixteenth leg

Fourteen points and two strikes after leg sixteen (note: teams in brackets after your name cannot be selected again)
