2008 Tipping...rd 18 RESULTS

Post by Gordon Murra » Tue, 24 Jun 2008 02:31:59

Phew!

Had to be out all day today, and only got back home late.

Had no idea about today`s games, until I saw the results.

Struth!   What is it about Castleford and "big" teams?  They`ve
beaten Leeds and Saints, and now they go and draw with Wigan
thereby ensuring none of us got any points out of that game...
which just about sums up this round.  A helluva lot of tipsters
managed to end up on "nil points", and even Joe Average,
who has had a great season so far, scored minus one

Undoubtedly this week`s ***Tipster of t'Week**  is

BILL L

who scored a fantastic 13 points, and zooms up 11 places
in the Ladder, into 4th place, ensuring that I am the meat
in the L family sandwich!

The only other tipsters to get into double figures were Glynnie
on 12 pts, and John Charnock on 10

Meanwhile, Ladder-leader-Lloyd made the most of a poor
round, to extend his lead at the top.

Never mind.....maybe next week will be easier!          :-)
