Footy Tipping 2016 – NRL Round 6 / AFL Round 3

A sad thing is that if I was trying to tip the losers I wouldn’t do any better than I am at the moment.
And when I tip more NRL winners than AFL something is really wrong.

Footy Tipping 2015 – NRL Round 12 / AFL Round 9

So, the NRL threw up three upsets out of four last weekend, but got the right result in one of the only three games that matters each year. Thanks, Queensland.
The AFL is still giving us the odd inexplicable loss. Port Adelaide seem to have forgotten how to win, but Melbourne might be starting to learn how to. Hawthorn and Sydney still too close to separate, but Hawthorn only have one real game that matters this year, all the rest is just about getting there to play it.
Carlton are not coming up against the most clinically ruthless team in the comp in Sydney tonight, but they are coming up against the one that can run up a huge score against a hopeless opponent if they get a run on.
