2013
Super League
Tipping Comp


English Rugby League

The first round kicks off on February 1st, so get your name down.

-------------------------------------

The rules:
  • Pick a winner and score a point.
  • Pick a draw and score a point (draws are very rare).
  • Default is equal to the wooden spoon score.
  • Final placings will be decided on HoF/WS differential and then, if required, total HoF awards.
  • One bonus point for perfect score.
---------------------------------------

In 2012, George95 just fell over the line after leading all season. Srini701 had great tips in the final two weeks, only to lose by a single point. PaulE was third.

Srini701 has a good record in this comp; he won in 2008 and 2009, second in 2012 and third in 2011. PaulE won in 2011, second in 2009 and 2010 and third last year. gtho4 won in 2010, and was runner-up in 2007 and 2008.

Can these three gents keep the pressure on, or is it time for a new face on the podium? Will George95 defend his title? Time will tell...

The tipping thread for the first round is up!

  • Welcome to Super League 2013, where most people got off to a good start.

  • George95 only missed the shock result of Huddersfield flogging St Helens. Some bonehead, who shall remain nameless, tried to go for an upset (or six), and managed a golden wood in Week 1. It is going to be a loooong season. frown

  • The top four players all picked the same and scored a HoF for their efforts. Sypher also scored 5/7 and moved up a bit.

  • The draw between Wigan and Warrington and the upset win by Castleford over Leeds precluded any chance of a perfect round. George95 retained his one point gap at the top.

  • PaulE and dg_dave both scored 3/5 and picked up the spoons this week.

  • I have written a stern letter to the Super League demanding that they stop playing drawn games, because people will confuse them with soccer! Three draws in four weeks is insane.

  • BxBarracuda added another HoF to his streak, and has broken away to a handy lead. Second place is crowded with four players tied- two more are just behind looking for an opening.

  • N-Bomb scored his first HoF and illiniman14 took home the cutlery this week.

  • The star this week is wwe84 who tipped two games solo. This gave him 5/7, two points more than anyone else, and he ascended at a rate of knots into equal third.

  • With all the upsets this week, points were going to be hard to come by, and there wwere five spooners, all with 2/5.

  • dg_dave went for a cheeky draw, and it almost worked. Catalan required a field goal and a late try to break a tied score.

    This comp is going to get very interesting now that draws are a viable option every week.

    Did we have another one? I thought they were as rare as an NFL tie.

    The Heineken Cup Rugby tourney only had 1 tie so far, which was a surprisingly low amount, through the first 72 games. Unless they put in an overtime period for regular season games ties are going to be possible most weeks.


    Edited to add, the Sunday match brings another tie, this out of proportion for ties.
