    Well the final round of the year has passed us by and the finals are locked in and the next level now begins. A couple of teams meekly folded their last ditch hand, but such is life at Parramatta and over the ditch. Titans provided the obligatory upset of course. Manly, not so good, but thankfully neither were our semi final opponents this week.

    As was the norm this year we struggled again to get any tippers to pick all 8 games. Two tippers did manage 7 from 8 though, which wasn't too bad considering the match ups this week. So well done @Jock and @Pride , nice way to finish off the tipping year guys.

    Meanwhile back at the top of the ladder we had a two way battle for the lead. @Clint stumbled a little at the final hurdle, opting for the Bunnies in the bonus game and putting his faith in Manly in their trip to Townsville. The Raiders and Titans upsets then left him with 8 points for the round. Probably not enough to get him over the line, and as it turned out that was the case. Nonetheless a very good effort from Clint again, his last 3 years of Silvertails tipping has produced 2nd, equal 1st, and 1st, so this is no fluke. "Don't argue with me fella, I know tipping" is his catch cry.

    @tookey on the other hand finished off with style logging a solid 14 points to cement his victory. Only the Sea Eagles and Bulldogs let him down this week. So it is with pleasure that we announce the winner of the Jan Davis memorial tipping competiton....

    The Sea Eagles #DecadeOfDominance Tipping Comp Winner for 2014 ....

    @tookey . Well done tooks, you charged to the lead about 6 weeks ago and have hung on tenaciously ever since, outlasting some of the big guns. You had faith in your ability to tip winners irrespective of what the bookies thought and were consistently at the top of the weekly tippers. I'll be in touch further about your prizes lads, once I finalise some details.

    Our final top ten looked like this

    292 @tookey
    284 @Clint
    282 @"The Army Of One"
    280 @"Stiffi"
    276 @"anthonyb1965"
    276 @"The Eagle Has Landed"
    274 @Moondog
    274 @Bradza
    272 @"ALinda"
    272 @"FayAkers"

    Thanks to everyone who participated this year, your support of the site is much appreciated. Hopefully you will all be back again next year as I'm sure we'll be back bigger and better than ever. Also once again thanks to @"MWSE Membership" for their assistance with the prizes.

    The tipping comp is continuing through the finals just to keep @Dan occupied with code writing. Nothing but bragging rights on offer though.

    We have one last prize for tippers which is the lucky tipper draw. I'll be announcing the prize and date of the draw shortly. So stay tuned for your last chance to win up big.

    I hope as many of you as possible get to games through the finals to support the team in their quest for another premiership. Starting this Friday, as we drive another nail into the coffin of what is the Rabbitohs dreams of glory. Thumbs down for you Rusty

          The Cowboys and Broncos are going to be tired after all of their games on Saturday night by the looks of the tipping comp. I just went to enter my tips and they appear to be playing 25 times. [​IMG]

          A single team selection of one of the 25 Cowboys V Broncos games wouldn't take once they were saved so I had to make the team selection on each of the 25 Cowboys V Broncos games before it would take and appear on the tips e-mail.

          An obvious coding glitch for Dan to fix at his leisure. :)

          P.S. Is there supposed to be a game where we have to pick a margin as well as there has not been one allocated or are we just giving it a miss with the finals?

          big congrats to Tookey and the top 10.

          Massive props to chip and chase for the weekly reports.

          Big glass of buttermilk to Dan.

          Now, do we find out which one of us was "fayakers" ie fakers? Someone threw in an extra 25 bucks for another shot at the title methinks, which is an awesome idea!

          Well done guys and gals
