Melbourne’s snap lock down means the AFL this weekend is a shamozzle. Including one game being cancelled; not sure what that means for tipping, but I’ll tip it anyway.
The NRL, on the other hand seems untouched, with Melbourne having stayed in Queensland from last round. You’d thing they knew something.
Of course Melbourne can kiss game one of the State of Origin goodbye, but they won’t consider that loss. Lots of Melbourne folk would pretty much consider the lock-down worth it, if it got rid of a rugby league game.
(Draws count as correct)
NRL (last round 5/8; season tally 63/88)
AFL (last round 6/9; season tally 56/90)
Gold Coast (whenever and wherever this one gets played)
West Coast Eagles
Port Adelaide (classy of Port not to sing the song in prison bar jerseys after last week’s win)
