2016 TSF NPC Tipping http://www.eglobal.co.nz/tsfnpc16/tsf.htm



  • OK team, usual format but you just need to know that the first game is on Thursday night.
     
    I have put up the tipping form for Week 1, full website to follow. So if you want to get some tips in go to

  • Sure why not



  • Sure why not

    Harbours eternally poor tipping results.....



  • I'll be in KP . Just chuck me in whatever team will have me please



  • Richie, Joan and Mary in!



  • Morning team - spread the word everyone, I know Higgins has been doing his best on PM and I added the tipping links for Week 1 to the Facebook group.



  • OK we have a website now
     
    http://www.eglobal.co.nz/tsfnpc16/tsf.htm
     
    so bookmark this for the next 2 months.
     
    Already 23 have submitted which is a good number with a fair few of the usual suspects (such as me) to make their picks.



  • I'll play for Wellington, or a leftover team...

  • Good turnout so far - Northland and Wellington have 5, other teams should be the Bush, South Island, Hawke's Bay, BOP/Waikato and Auckland/Harbour/Counties. No decisions until everyone is in.
     
    Now all you have to do is remember to keep tipping - it's short season, how hard can it be?



  • Question from a newbie: as most team line-ups aren't known before the first game is being played, do we submit our tippings for all games before the first game, or just the tipping for that first game and submit the rest later?



  • Most just tip the whole round but up to you if wanted to submit your tips that way. High risk of fogetting to tip tho, well would be for me!

    Couldn't find anything in the rules but I was always under the impression that you had to tip the entire round rather than in dribs and drabs. Guess we will have to wait until KP resurfaces later today to make a ruling. If he does not come in just tip the entire round to be on the safe side.
     
    Try here for the lineups

  • If you miss a game or two you can tip mid round so technically you could tip game by game BUT you would have to tip the additional options (ie highest / lowest scorer etc) at the start of the round.

    Yes the unwrittten rule is tip all games prior to the first game as you should pick highest/lowest scorer before any games is played. I allow a tip to be changed if you realise you've cocked up badly (for example picking the Steamers to lose 17+ when obviously you meant win 17+) but otherwise, the less work I have to do the better!



  • I don't believe it - Bay Imports has crawled out of the woodwork! Could this be a great omen???

    Or vice versa in the case of newcomer Victor A (Magpie_in_aus?) who has BoP 17+ but Taranaki for the highest scorer in the round. Talk about covering your bets!



  • Getting close to kick off time and at the time of writing the allegiance declarations look to be about
     
    Northland five entries - one more would ne nice
    Nth Harbour = three entries - still need at least two and preferably three more
    Auckland = three entries - still need at least two and preferably three more
    Waikato = three entries - still need at least two and preferably three more
    Bay of Plenty = five entries - one more would be ideal
    Hawkes Bay = four entries - one more will get a starting lineup but two more would be perfect
    Wairarapa-Bush = six entries for the defending champs
    Wellington = a full squad has been assembled
    Sth Island = looks to be four so a couple more would do nicely
     
    Still a few regulars to arrive but if you are out there tossing up whether to take part or not then please give it a go to ensure all teams have a playable number and to stop amalgmations or the draft being required.



  • Might be an idea to combine Auckland and Harbour?



  • Here are the provisional teams - will be revisited if we get more entries. Players marked in bold have started with 10 for the Harbour win. So it looks like Harbour-Auckland is the first leader of the comp.
     
    BOP - sportboy midge Donsteppa bayimports KP
    Counties-Waikato - Crucial mikedogz Hooroo Unite Adam Bowen
    Harbour-Auckland - Virgil DK JK Dogmeat Tim NZZP
    Hawke's Bay - Stockcar86 Victor A Hurrycanes Higgins Stargazer
    Northland - Farnthhayden Gunner Kev TR Justin77
    South Island - Phooey Corkscrew ACT Crusader Broughie Richie
    Bush - Buck Waynes World Plastered Peni Triple T Langakali Victor
    Wellington - Cactus Jack Dingo Hydro Allstar Winger Chaz
     
    Joan and Mary and African Monkey still to join a team - dependent on who else joins.

    A good omen for someone I am sure, hopefully us.. havent seen any rugby for a while though, so will be relying on dumb luck rather than normal luck ..
