TSF NPC Tipping 2019



  • Hi all,

    Thanks to Duluth, we are ready for you to enter your tips for the Mitre 10 Cup starting next week. The leaderboard you see is from NPC 2018.

    https://www.thesilverfern.com/tipping/

    First game is always Thursday and 7 games per week so it should be a bit easier to remember.



  • @KiwiPie

    That was just put together last night, so there may be issues.

    It will not load on IE (Edge is fine)

    The other pages/tabs will be added later

    Also, the table is responsive and some columns are hidden at a lower width. If you are on your phone you will see more data in landscape etc



  • When does NPC start?



  • @Hooroo next Thurs



  • Time to mobilise troops again Magpies as we put together a team to challenge for the most important title of the season. Last years team consisted of Stargazer, Stockcar86, Yours Truly, PAJ, Propsicle and Clara. Sadly Clara suffered a season ending injury early on and not sure whether they have recovered sufficiently to take a spot in the team this season. Ran into Propsicle a couple of Saturday nights ago. It was rather late it too but we had a good discussion and think we understood each other reasonably well despite speaking what sounded like different languages whilst we sipped away on what I think was Waitoa Social Club Axemen Pale Ale! Would rate his chances of having sobered up in time to make the first found of tipping as 50/50 at best at this stage so we might be looking for maybe two one eyed Magpie supporters to front up for us this season. The more the merrier so give it some thoughts Number10, Magpies-In-Aus, The Observer (come and join a couple of fellow Meeanee Speedway fans in the Bay Team), Kiwimatrix or Nepia (or any other closet Magpies supporters that lurk away in the background of this website).



  • @Higgins Okay, if you're short I will join in.



  • Should be interesting, have no idea how the teams stack up this year



  • @Higgins I'm in!



  • Tipped. South Island resurgence is on the cards.



  • got my guesses in!

    A few results are generally easy to pick, many are not for a few rounds at least.

  • Some tough games to start the season.



  • Have Wairarapa-Bush been disqualified as they are no longer an option. Had a few beers with two of their stalwarts after Pressies Grade rugby on Saturday an amongst other important things like who should be the AB right wing the upcoming Mitre10- Cup tipping competition was discussed (always a number of jugs at stake between us!) to make sure they are ready to go but the Bush seems to have disappeared from the list of entrants. Is their an option for Wellington B or Hawkes Bay Development Squad to take their place if the Bush are sent packing as most of the Bush mob are semi-aligned with either/both those areas?



  • @Higgins I've added the Bush back in as a team option, I hadn't noticed that it had fallen off ...



  • @KiwiPie I'm kind of hoping their team does fall off too as they damn well have had the wood on the good guys HB Team lately!



  • After being a participant in (Ithink) every tipping comp edition I am going to sit this one out in fairness to any team That may get stuck with me.
    No reflection on your excellent comp KP. None at all.
    Being concentrated on moving back to godzone and re-establishing a home and job, my focus will be elsewhere for a while.
    Sorry, but no big loss:)



  • @Crucial weak, weak reasoning!

    Welcome back! Where are you moving to?



  • Fortunately for which ever team would be lumped with me, I'm absent for ~80% of the comp so I'll give this iteration a miss.
