The 2016 TVAus NRL Tipping Competition

It's that time of year again. The start of the 2016 NRL Premiership Season is coming up fast, so its time to get the NRL tipping competition up and running once more. I'll try my best to keep up with updating the thread with the ladder and next week's fixture in a timely manner.

As with last year, entry is FREE for the 2016 tipping competition! Just rock up each week, put your tips in, and have a go. I will be funding this year's prize pool, but if anyone feels the urge to donate to increase the pool, they are most welcome to.

We also will be having FINALS Footy Tipping this year.

Prize is $55,000 TVAus Dollars, to be shared between the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place getters at the end of the minor round. This amount also includes a small prize for the wooden spooner. There will also be prizes for the Finals portion of the tipping competition, as well as an overall prize - both of which are yet to be determined.

The competition will go ahead if there are 4 or more participants. Hopefully, we can get enough - given the late start to the thread.

Rules
Tips for each round should be in before the first game of the round commences. As with last year's competition, if you are unable to get your tips in by the deadline, you will automatically be given the away teams for the round, except for the margin match, where you automatically score 0. You won't be able to submit tips after the deadline, so make sure you get them in.

Each round, you will be asked to give a margin for a particular match. If you correctly pick this margin, you will score 5 bonus points, which could be useful by the end of the competition.

*If you correctly select all 8 winners for any given round, you will be awarded a bonus 5 points.*

This year, State of Origin, the ANZAC test, and City/Country games will give tippers the opportunity to add some extra points to their tally.

**If you enter the competition after the commencement of Round 1, you will be given a starting score equal to that of the tipper on the bottom of the ladder at that time minus 5 points.**

Sign up begins now, and Round 1 commences on Thursday the 3rd of March. Don't delay - join today! Who will take out the top spot this year?

Good luck and happy tipping.

Only 3 people so far. This may not end up going ahead here. I don't know where everyone has disappeared to.

A few years ago we had 20+ people in our tipping competitions - now we can barely get enough to run them.

Just a suggestion send them a PM or If possible a email and get them back in the forum and joining the tipping comp.
