sleeps until St.George host Brisbane
at Jubilee Oval (Thursday, March 8) ...
"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 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 the 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

"Ralphy" from Engadine
My thanks to the many who continue to back up year after year and also a warm welcome to our newcomers - hopefully by season's end it will have dawned on you that banging your head against the brick wall of tipping success each weekend, and paying for the privilege, is not the smartest thing you'll have done during the year.
Remember Thursday is the new Friday with Thursday night football for most of the season. 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.
Your task this week is to select 6 scratch and 4 handicap winners from these 8 games (home team first):
The on-line cut-off is 7.40pm Thursday (scheduled kick-off for St.George vs Brisbane). Tipsters who miss this important deadline have until 4.00pm Saturday (Wests Tigers vs Roosters) 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.
