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.
Handicap Knockout No.1 Week 2 - you must select at least 2 winners (which will include draws if a deferred game is not played before the next 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.
Your task this week is to select 6 scratch and 4 handicap winners from the following 8 games (home team first):
The online cut-off is 8.05pm Thursday (scheduled kick-off for Canberra vs St.George). Tipsters who miss this first deadline have until 3.00pm Saturday (Sharks vs Newcastle) 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. It is important to understand all weekly cut-off times are fixed and independent from the time any referenced games actually start.
After accessing 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, tipsters can lodge selections by email but they still must be received by me before the respective cut-off time.
