Tuesday  TAB releases FootyTAB Pick The Winners starts.  Website opens for selections.  Team lists announced.


Wednesday  An email reminder with weekly news, games and starts is sent to all tipsters.


Thursday  Shortly after the online cut-off, our summary page is updated with all lodged selections.


Saturday  Late selections cut-off is usually the scheduled start time of Saturday's first game.


Thursday to Sunday  Our summary page is regularly updated with match results and selection outcomes are colour-coded.  The tipster ladder is published soon after the round's final game.


Please note the earlier than normal cut-offs this round - the online cut-off is 4.05pm Thursday (ANZAC Day) and 7.55pm Friday for the late cut-off.  If you're the forgetful type, it may be wise to lodge your selections when you receive your mid-week email reminder - they can always be updated before the online cut-off.

We are approaching Round 8, a money point in the competition with $120 available for both best overall and handicap score through Rounds 1-8.  You've got two weekends to make an impression on our dual leader, Karen Escott.

It's Week 6 of Handicap Knockout No.1 and the bar has been raised - you must now select at least three winners to stay alive (14 still in).

Your task this week is to select 6 scratch and 4 handicap winners from the following 8 games (home team first - rotating team lists are shown in the panel on the right):

The online cut-off is 4.05pm Thursday (scheduled kick-off for Roosters vs St.George).  Tipsters who miss this important deadline have until 7.55pm Friday (Penrith vs Souths) 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, tipsters can lodge selections by email (click here) but they still must be received by me before the respective cut-off time.
