Footy tipping comp underway

We ended up with exactly 50 contestants for our IC11 tipping competition.  Many thanks to John Hamilton for putting this together and Burley Sekem for their prizes.

With 18 matches decided on Game Day 1 there was plenty of room for error, but then again all bar one of the results went with the seedings so playing it safe was a good bet.  The two close games of the day were the United States defying the seeding by defeating Canada by 3 points and Japan edging Fiji by 2 points in a last gasp win.

No doubt you'll all shed a tear for this author when I say that I got both those wrong - so near to a perfect score but now well down the leaderboard and feeling robbed that Fiji's gun young player Dylan Wolfgramm (probably worth several goals) was not available, instead putting in a best on ground performance for Avondale Heights down in Victoria.

Don't forget to get your tips in for Game Day 2 before tomorrow morning!  The results so far:
