It was tough going for tippers in the opening round of the NRL season but not so much in Far North Queensland.
4 of the 5 'Tip All Winners' prizes went to Qld venues which is no surprise given all 3 Queensland based NRL sides opened the season with a win. The underdog Broncos upset the bookie's favourite in the Bulldogs away from Suncorp as did the Titans over the Sharks down at Cronulla. The Cowboys chalked up the first of many home wins for the season over the Raiders and these 3 results saw the NSW tippers left in the banana benders' dust.
2 of the happy winners are pictured below. Mick from Rockhampton Leagues Club (left) and Anthony from Sarina Leagues Club (right) which happen to be brand new Sportsspick venues in 2014. Beginners luck or great tipping skill? I'm sure they'd both say it is the latter.
