Old Mitch must have contracted a case of the Colliwobbles last week and was only able to pick 4 winners so it's closer than the fat man next to you on a plane at the top of the leaderboard now. Come on tipsters, surely we can knock KC and Old Mitch off the top in the next few weeks, let's keep it interesting, pick a few roughies and come in the last round to snatch victory!
Speaking of roughies, there's a few interesting match ups this week so this could be the round for some upsets..
A friday night game in the city of churches? Who would have thought... The Dons fly over there to clash with the Crows and after a new Brisbane Rugby League team has hijacked their "Bombers" title, Hirdy and his boys will come out fighting.
On Saturday arvo the Tiges are at home to Gold Coast in Cairns....huh? Yep..that's right.. I'm not quite sure who they are planning to fill the stands with, perhaps a few random backpackers with not much else to do. Richmond have got a bit of a point to prove after a couple of shockers and the Gold Coast lads are starting to look a little leg weary, most likely wishing they'd stuck to their surfing and theme park rides...
It's a sell-out at the G on Saturday with 85000 Carlton and Collingwood fans - scary? Yes. This should be an absolute cracker of a game with two serious grand final contenders. But the way the Pies tore apart the Roos last week, Carlton should be a tad nervous...
West Coast are coming across the Nullabor on Saturday night to fight it out with the Saints at Etihad. They were able to knock the Blues off at this very stadium a few weeks ago and just don't seem to give up - so the Saints will have their work cut out for them.
So anyway, I thought Richmond and Gold Coast in Cairns was odd, how about Melbourne V Port Adelaide in Darwin? Melbourne really need to win this game to stay in finals contention, but given the Power are sitting in the bottom 2 it's highly likely they'll get thrashed just to frustrate their supporters a little more... Look out Mt Hotham, there'll be some angry Volvo drivers around on Sunday!
It's been overtime for the medicos at Fremantle this week and with the Big Bad Sandilands out again, the Dockers will have a tough match up against Sydney with the home ground advantage. Also on Sunday arvo the Cats head north for some sunshine and what should be a fairly easy win over the Lions.
And to wrap it all up the Doggies take on the Roos at the phone dome on Sunday evening. The Dogs appear to be hitting their straps at the right end of the season whilst the bounce seems to have well and truly gone from the Roo boys.
Well that's it tipsters, get tipping and good luck!
