"Thanks mate for another enlightening year where I learnt that I am not as smart as my 6 year old and got my arse kicked !  See you next year."

Clifty from Ryde


Thanx for all your good work Fatcat, much appreciated.

  John H from Gosford


(After spending the 17 weeks before Round 26 firmly entrenched in the top 3)

"My God, why have you and the Penny Panthers forsaken me?"

Mark C from Balmain


"Thank you for another outstanding year of running this."

Alan K from Puncbowl


(Before the last round when he was in 5th place and 5 points off the lead)

"I take this opportunity to thank you for enabling myself, my wife and grandson to participate in your competition.  Please convey best of luck to all the other people at the top and let them know I think I can still win it !"

Barry S from Davistown


"Thank you once again for another great year."

The Malones from NSW North Coast


(After finishing in a 3-way tie for 2nd place and collecting $833.34, the avid St.George supporter who backed them at 150/1 to win this year's premiership had the gall to say)

"I'm still not break-even yet.  I can't believe those guys picked St.George."

Danny D from Alexandria


"Thanks for the job you do - it's a great comp and a lot of fun."

Shaun F from God's Country


(You make one mistake (!?) and the narks come out of the woodwork)

"Hey Mr Cat, I think you have next week's draw incorrect - the Broncos are playing St George."

Clive G from Bateau Bay


"Just when I thought I was going alright ... thanks for another 'enjoyable' season.  Cheers mate and see you soon."

  "Ralphy" from Engadine

After 26 weeks we've finally arrived at the finishing post and provisional placings will be semaphored after the last game on Sunday night, probably about 8.30pm.

An appropriate time to mention our 6 person $200 lucky door prize, the Final Series (full details on our Rules page).  Based on your position in Round 1 you were teamed to a letter and a club.  As of last weekend (Round 25), the front running letter team is "B" with Danny Downey, Jim Henney and Joe Bugner & Sons it's leading trio and NQld head the handicap wins race dragging Alan Katzmann, Vince Nevin and Anthony Sheedy into the spotlight.  If you want to check on your dwindling end of season prospects, the scores for all letters and clubs are available on the Finals Series Eligibilty page.

Remember Thursday is the new Friday with Thursday night football again this round.  If you're the forgetful type, it may be wise to lodge your selections when you receive the email reminder - they can always be updated before the online cut-off.

And for the last time this season, select 6 scratch and 4 handicap winners from these 8 games (home team first - rotating team lists are shown in the panel on the right):

The on-line cut-off is 7.50pm Thursday (scheduled kick-off for NQld vs Brisbane).  Tipsters who miss this important deadline have until 3.00pm Saturday (Roosters vs Gold Coast) to email me their late picks but they are penalised 1 selection and are only allowed to submit 9 (5 scratch and 4 handicap) chosen from the remaining, unplayed games.

To lodge your tips online, click here to open the login page, type in your username and password and the games and starts will be displayed under your name.  When you have made the required number of selections, the submit button becomes available.  Press the submit button - it's the most critical part of lodging your selections - and your tips are on their way to the ESG&EC database.  You will receive an almost immediate email confirmation of your selections.

In the unlikely event of a site malfunction, but they still must be received by me before the respective cut-off time.
