Rd 3 MH Mates Footy Tipping - it's a Miracle!
Welcome to Round 3 tipsters and here's hoping you all had a top little Easter with as many chocolate eggs, church services and jam packed highways you could find...
Round 2 proved to be a walkover for nineteen of the MH Mates who very astutely picked 9...in fact this is the first time anyone at all has picked 9 in the MH comp and 19 of you go out and do it! Top work...
Mighty Mike Stern led the way this week but special mention must be made of The Wiz who is sitting atop the leaderboard. Yes that's it, Warrick Capper, the man who famously said during his porn movie debut:
"I've had a lot of practice being a sex symbol, so if you've got it, flaunt it,"
So, tipsters, get it out and flaunt it for Rd 3...
Collingwood V Carlton
An absolute rip snorter of a game this one. The Pies should have their skipper back on board but the Blues Train is full steam ahead at the moment. Juddy and his boys have hit their straps and are looking mighty fine.
Melbourne V Richmond
And from the rip snorter of a game to just a bit of a snorter of a game...What can you say..ho hum? The loser of this game goes down 0-3 and will have a long 2012 ahead of them.
Port Adelaide V Sydney
A close one between these two interstate teams over in the city of churches. The Bloods have won both of their encounters thus far with Port 1 win 1 loss, but the power of the Power supporters at home might just get them over the line
Fremantle V Brisbane
You would expect the Dockers to take home the chocolates for this game with Ross Lyon improving his troops every week, but the Lions have got the Big Bad Browny factor back so this could turn the tables
Essendon V Gold Coast
85 of current listed players were not even born and Freo wasn't even a team when Dustin Fletcher first pulled on his Bombers footy shorts. He runs out for his 350 games this week. A stirling effort.. Gazza Ablett is the only shining light from the Gold Coast and unless a couple of other players step up they are looking at quite the trouncing.
Western Bulldogs V St Kilda
The Doggies have got a solid defensive line with Lakey hitting his straps but they are lacking any drive up on the forward line. The Saints should come home in this one if big Nick can bag a couple of beauties.
GWS V West Coast
Oooh dear...this could be ugly. Top V Bottom. It's not a case of who but by how many. Highest goal score records could be in danger here and Sheeds has got his work cut out for him.
Adelaide V Hawthorn
Sando's boys have had a flying start to 2012 and the Hawks will need to put Monday's loss behind them to knock off the Crows at the G on Sunday.
Kangaroos V Geelong
Fresh off a massive win over GWS, the Roo boys come up against a Cat's outfit that just clawed their way to victory on Monday. The Cats know how to win and will most likely do this on Sunday arvo in the Scott twins clash.
Good luck Tipsters!
