The 2021 NRL tipping competition

Greetings football fans. For those of you that disappeared for the off-season...welcome back.

Tipster slots for newcomers is now closed

Just a heads up that we need to close off the competition to entrants this weekend to get everything ready and working for the season. Don't panic if you participated last season and you aren't listed as a confirmed tipster below. I've left slots open for those of you that haven't popped your heads up yet.

Not many sleeps to go now folks. Giddy up.

Confirmed newcomers

Newcomers are generally welcome on a first in, first served basis. If you've been waiting since last season, now is the time to let me know you're keen to be involved this year.

You will need to create an account on the site if you don't already have one (which is free) and I will update your account to tipster status (which is also free). The competition is free to play and it's just a bit of fun. Once I have confirmed your details and added you as a new tipster your name will be listed here.

Confirmed newcomers are listed below - welcome aboard all:

jackorot23, Mahenza, LuckyWock, Rocket, black_silk, Princess, WannaWynn, darchy, Chook_Dan, carolineolivia, Tough Bunny


There will be prizes for our top three tipsters and a few random prizes throughout the season, but I'll provide more details on the prizes in the weeks ahead.

The top three also get their name etched on the Honour Board and the recognition you deserve.


If anyone has any questions about the competition or anything else, feel free to ask in the comments section below. The season kicks off on Thursday 11th March.

All the best

The Thinker

Morning Mr Thinker and fellow Tipsters
Tiger would love to continue this year, I can sense something big coming for the Tigers and for Tiger himself.
They do say that good things come to those who wait, I and the Tigers have been waiting long enough, bring on 2021.
To all of the regulars on the site, Christine, Bigpete, Newbie, Mark, Mary, Rocket, The Butcher , Guru Craig, Steel Panther and so many more I look forward to the banter and footy talk.
Thanks again Thinker for allowing me to participate, god I hope I can do better this year.

Mr T,

Hi to all!

As the season's start draws near I find myself feeling that I might give tipping a miss this year? I will be lurking in the background however and may add my two cents every now and then haha. (Though if my wife and son are keen to keep our 'in house' comp going I will no doubt need to rush and beg The Thinker for a spot on the ladder)

I hope everyone has had a wonderful off season and ready for the year ahead! I wonder what 2021 will bring? After last year, I can't help but feel all bets are off lol!

Can't wait for the footy to be back! COME ON COWBOYS!

Happy new (NRL) year to all.
Yo thinker, please consider me for inclusion in this years footy tipping. Back in Aus so may do better then last season. Cowboys training for speed under new coach so excited for a top one finish this year! Cowboys are back, you heard it here first :)
Had dinner with Morgs and Valentine couple of weeks ago ( our table was full so they sat at their own table near us, but that counts, right.) and they looked hungry ( at the start...... )
Bring it on!!

Please count me in for 2021. I hope 2020 was just a practice for an improvement to be forthcoming. Let's hope we don't have any [Health related] interuptions to the season this year. Maybe the vaccine will get it under control!!! All the best to the rest of the participants. See y'all on The Leaderboard.
