We are starting to see the quality rise to the top. Some massive efforts in this edition of the Vietnam Swans Tipstar.
Starting to really stamp authority on this comp are “Troggs” and “Deesboy” – Lucky 8’s for the 2nd time in 3 weeks – tough to beat. Slowly lifting and climbing back into the title race are Uncle Crow (yes we here you coming), Boz, Chris B, Tony Morwood (Celebrity Tipstar) and Snags – all with 8. The competition overall is on the improve with the average for this week being up about 6. So enough about the heros – what about the villians from this round?
Well…….”The number 1 Drew” is quickly becoming the Fremantle of the comp – good on paper, but just can’t get over the line. Andy Wall – starting to choke a little like Port, Fabo Phil in need of a name change, and “The Stray” – acting a little too much like his beloved Saints – seasons over. Gone, either tanking or looking for an early footy trip are the Matts – “Johns”, “Ball” and “777″ are off the pace and need a bigger sprint home than Kiwi in the 83 Melbourne Cup.
Tipping looks much harder this week – plenty of injuries and suspensions. How long before the CATS or HAWKS lose? Port vs Sydney - who cares?. Will the Tigers be able to put away the Dons? What ever the answers, think long and hard this week – we need to catch the 2 at the top that are starting to pull away.
