Some non-tipping but football related news first.  The Newtown Jets final home game is on this Saturday, August 25.  The game, against the Western Suburbs Magpies, kicks-off at 1.00pm and also doubles as the Jets (Bluebags) Reunion Day.  I'd encourage you to get down to iconic Henson Park to enjoy a true grass roots experience.  I'll definitely be there if you want to catch up before, during or after the match.  The before (midday) and after (3.00pm) will be at hipster heaven, the Henson Park Hotel.

2 weeks to go - prizemoney goes down to 5th.  If it's any consolation, last weekend's average score (7.5pts) was the lowest this season although this round may give it a nudge!  I normally refrain from making comment on how people are faring, especially from a position more than halfway down the leaderboard, but I stumbled on a case of tipping redemption earlier today.  When setting up this week's results page, I hit shift+control+end to delete last year's Round 24 data and landed on the tipster running last - this year's co-leader Vanessa McCoy.

Remember Thursday is the new Friday with Thursday night football for the rest of the season.  If you're the forgetful type, it may be wise to lodge your selections when you receive this 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 - rotating team lists are shown in the panel on the right):

The online cut-off is 7.50pm Thursday (scheduled kick-off for Wests Tigers vs Manly).  Tipsters who miss this important deadline have until 3.00pm Saturday (Canberra 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.
