With the NRL suspending their season, this is my decision regarding the future of our tipping competition.

Put simply, if the season resumes, there needs to be 16 rounds played by the October long weekend (**or ensuing days) for us to continue.

Why then?  I have booked, and obviously sometime ago, an overseas family holiday for mid-October and although the possibility of travelling then may seem rather remote in the current environment, it is something I have no control over.  If the season continues past that date, we will still finish the tipping comp then.

If the season resumes early June, and barring further disruption, we'll have comfortably played 16 rounds by October.  By my calculations, an early July restart puts us on a knife's edge.

Beyond the 16 games by the October long weekend requirement, I am flexible.  If for instance the Warriors drop out leaving 7 games a round, it won't affect the tipping comp.  In past seasons there were rounds where only 4, 5 or 6 games were played as teams got a bye weekend.  Our 6 and 4 format can be adjusted if needed - we've done 4 and 4 or 5 and 5 previously.  Instead of Thursday to Sunday football we may see games being played **7 days a week as a catch-up mechanism to allow the NRL to salvage their broadcast money.

I'll be in touch when there's clarity about the resumption of the NRL season.

If the comp is abandoned, everyone will have their entry fee refunded less any prizemoney already paid out (and that's zero so far).  And speaking of prizemoney, there'll be some rejigging if we go ahead.  Plenty of ifs ...

Thanks for your patience and keep safe.
