TSF NPC Tipping 2019



  • @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.



  • We have the following people in already - remember the first game is on Thursday.

    mikedogz
    ACT Crusader
    Stockcar86
    Virgil
    Dolamite
    Paj
    Wayne’s World
    DK
    J77
    TR
    Hurrycanes
    Richie
    Joan and Mary



  • 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.

    Just back to to the house in Welly to start with. See what happens after that.

  • @Stargazer Right thread this time thanks to helpfull advise from a fellow competitor. Don't forget to get your tips in. Think we will relax the HB 17+ call again this season (although it is very tempting this round to stick one up the 'Poo!) Still hoping the likes of The Observer, Number 10 or any of the others will front to make sure we have the full compliment. Ran into Propsicle at the new Samoan Cafe (first Samoan feed I have had in ages - absolutely superb - just a shame it was not warm Samoan weather!!!) in Wellington today and he is an almost definite starter! Still need at least one (or possibly two) to make sure we do not play one short each week. Come on you fellow Magpies time to don the black and white hooped jersey to take on all comers for what was once our title almost as of right!!



  • We're getting there

    Counties-Waikato 3
    South Island 5
    Hawke's Bay 3
    Harbour-Auckland 4
    Individual 1
    Wellington 5
    Northland 4
    Southland 2
    Bay of Plenty 4
    Wairarapa Bush 4

    35 in all - just 5 more to get all teams to 5 - Southland will be folded into another team as I'm not sure what it was doing there in the first place.



  • I'll be in for another try please KP . I assume there is no Taranaki so Wellington if there is still a spot
