Disappointing to see those with no faith in Richmond prosper while the true believers refuse to buckle.

You are actually close. All but one of the 5s went for the Saints as did a couple of the 4s. Surprising how many went Saints

Woowee what a round.

Scores from 3 to 8 see a massive change to the ladder.

@believe! and @justmike respond to their last place by top scoring with 8!!! That leaves @iTiger59 in last 2 behind @TigerTimmy

Gracie now leads by 3 thanks to @Broadsword's run of high scores coming to an end.

hmmm... lets see now...

4.. 3.. 8...

i had a funny feeling doing my blind tipping form last autumn, i felt a draft, heard a muffled step... startled, i turned but there was nothing there, tho i could have sworn i felt a presence hovering at my shoulder while i threw darts at a hanging, morbidly curled roll of flypaper, divining my choices for the rest of the year.

@justmike kindly post my spare key your game is up sir.

TigerTimmy………. 4.. 5.. 6… 89
Justmike……………. 3.. 8.. 4… 88

Another huge scoring range has seen the ladder change yet again.

@believe! top scored for the second week in a row springboarding him to the middle of the pack. @iTiger59 also with an 8 moves himself from the wooden spoon position. This is once again assumed by @justmike. Despite all of @TigerTimmy 's solid scoring he is back to just one in front of last. Can't take a trick.

@Jools stumbles and drops down the ladder while @thebigricho moves himself into a position to make a run at a podium finish.

Gracie still has a three point lead with 5 rounds to go. Can he maintain the form or is 22 weeks to long to hold consistency? Much like his golf game.

TigerTimmy….. 5.. 6.. 7… 96
itiger59………… 3.. 8.. 4… 93

@believe! is the new Mr Consistency top scoring with 8 for the third week in a row. He is now within reach of a podium finish if he can continue this form.

@Jools and @justmike also topped score with 8 both reversing last weeks poor result. They need some lessons from Mr Consistency

@iTiger59 went the other way after top scoring last week and is now 3 adrift in last spot.

Gracie holds top spot by three but didn't score well this week. Are the cracks starting to show?? Can he maintain this lead with 4 rounds to go??

TigerTimmy………. 6.. 7.. 5… 101

Mr Consistency @believe! scores another 8 and is now just 1 off a podium finish.

Top score was Gracie with 9 and he now has a 4 point lead with 3 rounds to go......surely...

@Broadsword sits in 2nd with a gap of 2 to 3rd

@thebigricho @Vosstiger and Mr Consistency are all in with a chance of 3rd

The "battle" for the wooden spoon creates the most interest with @iTiger59 scoring 8 and catching back up to the main group.

Three way tie for last right now btween @iTiger59 @justmike and @TigerTimmy who finds himself back in last after all his hard work to escape.

@Crusher and @Vines are only 1 point off last.

Thanks @believe!

Going very well in most tipping comps this year. Coming 32nd in the footytips overall comp. Just 3 behind the leader.....if only we hadn't of drop those close games earlier in the season :p

The only comp I am not leading is the YnB site one cause I missed putting my tips in one week and got a big fat zero.


Nice @Gracie! I think you're going to be a little hard to catch now.
I am a Richmond supporter so not counting the NZ sheep stations just yet.

Fancy picking 9 last week, @Gracie! One of those rounds where you probably couldn't have done it a week out but could do it a whole season out.

Drug test for Gracie please, focussing on alcohol.
If they drug tested me for alcohol I expect to pass with flying colours

What have been the final winning scores in this comp since the 18-team format?
2016 Vines with 132
2015 Tigerrific with 131
2014 Fightingfury with 149
2013 Duncan with 146
2012 Fightingfury Gracie Broadsword with 143

The comp has only been around since the 18 team format was in existence.

@justmike and @TigerTimmy caught @iTiger59 napping with this weeks top score of 8 and this has left @iTiger59 alone in last spot two behind 4 tipsters. Will the jostling between these 4 cause one to trip up and allow iTiger59 to get out of last or will they work together to block any moves?

Gracie still leads but @Broadsword has cut the lead to 3 with 2 rounds to play. Will Gracie hold on or has he gone too early?

@thebigricho and @Vosstiger are tied for third. Expect a few elbows and trips between these two over the last three rounds. Who will hold on to stand on the podium?

So many questions so little time.

However we do know that Mr Consistency has stumbled and his brave run from the back of the back has faltered. Maybe one to watch for next year!

@Ned topped scored this week with 7. This takes him within 2 of a podium finish. Will he get there?

@Broadsword chasing hard for top spot but Gracie matched every move. Those two have careered away from the main pack.

At the other end we have the sad news that despite all his best endeavours @TigerTimmy has fallen back to last spot. He can still get away from the wooden spoon with a big last round effort.
