What a night!

Very few tipped Castleford to win at Wigan, but what an upset!

And those who tipped Salford to beat Wakefield must have
been bricking it for most of the night.  Yet no fewer than
7 people managed to get the Salford margin spot-on in the end.

And Bradford certainly ran Hull close....at least earlier on,
when it looked as if most of us would be well into Minusland tonight,
but as it all turned out, there was some impressive point-
scoring ...Danny is already on 13pts, but is closely followed
by Joyrider and Ken Smith on 12pts, with every chance of a
lot more points tomorrow night.

Back tomorrow night with full results and Ladder....

A little refresher in the basic rules of the Tipping Comp....

Please read and feel free to be confused.

An email questionnaire will be sent to each and everyone who
reads them, with the person who gets the most questions
wrong, held up to ridicule

(That`s you, Erasmus)
-------------------------------

Open to anyone. All you have to do is tip the results and
margins of each of the games in SuperLeague.

Easy,.....innit!

Points are awarded as follows......

Tipped Incorrect Team: MINUS 1pt
Tipped Correct Team, However your predicted margin was over 12 points away
from actual margin: 1pt
Tipped Correct Team, Within 12 points of actual margin: 2pts
Tipped Correct Team, Within 6 points of actual margin: 3pts
Tipped Correct Team, With Correct Margin: 5pts

Tipped a draw correctly......... 7pts

Where a game results in a draw, 2 pts are awarded to those who
tipped EITHER team by 4 points or less.  All other entries receive
minus 1pt.

HTH

First of all a great big apology for getting one of the scores
wrong last night!    Sporting Life reported Salford 26- Wakefield 16
instead of 26-12.

I learned long ago to double-check results, but it seems the only
time I don`t check is when they`re wrong, duh.

Funny that!

Speaking of funny.... Wigan have 4 points this season, all gained
by beating Huddersfield - the only team that have beaten Saints!

Who`d have tipped that?

And talking of funny. The Magician has religiously tipped against
Saints for every round this season.......until this week, LOL :-)

Anyways with several "strange" results there`s quite a spread in
points gained by everyone, from the decidedly unlucky Arthur
on one point right up to ***Tipster of t`Week***

KEN  SMITH

who amassed an amazing 15 points, despite being let down
by Saints.  Just goes to show what can be done!

Ken, btw becomes the first person this season to win the
coveted TotW award twice, and is duly rewarded in the
Ladder which shows quite a few changes this week!

Aaaaaargh

I see what I`ve done wrong....I copied your results down wrongly.

Your tips came in just after Dave Heaton....and I`ve written
his tips down under your name!

There will have to be corrections to Ladder, and I will
sack myself

You will always have at least 1 person for the team tellins are playing ;-}

I am pleased you drew attention to it before you noticed, I know the wrong
side of the East lans has an effect on people's eyesight ;)

Cheers Gordon.

Trust my own side to let me down !
Still, I wasn't on my own with only The Magician tipping against Saints [as
usual].
I seem to remember getting to the top of the table at about the same stage
last season (or was it the season before ?) and then falling away badly and
not making the top ten at the end.
Just hope I've not peaked too soon (same for Saints as well !!)

Ken

Well that is as clear as mud.
I cannot understand how I have managed to climb
up the ladder so quickly without knowing how
the scoring went.
Now I do know watch a few weeks of minus points

Pies have come
