The 2015 Sportspick NRL Super Tipper National competition has concluded with a 2-way tie for 1st place on 130 correct tips.
Congratulations to Kerry 'Stringer' Miller of The Queens Hotel, Gladstone Qld and Tom Woods of The Envy Hotel, Broadbeach Qld who took out the comp with 130 correct tips.
Congratulations also go out to all the Local Venue NRL comp winners around the Sportspick Network.
Tom made a late charge up the leaderboard with 7 from 8 in the final round to tie with Kerry who held a 2 point lead over the chasing pack going into the final round.
With a Queenslander winning the 2014 NRL comp last year, it seems that it isn't just Origin that the sunshine state has dominated in recent times.
Come on NSW, 2016 is your time to shine!
Both tippers will share first and second prize equally and will each take home a $13,500 cash prize and bragging rights until next season! (20K + 7K / 2)
3 tippers finished tied for third place with a final tip tally of 128 points and they will share the 3rd prize of $3000.
The Knockout competition was decided earlier in the season with Keith 'Cappy' Smith from Yamba Golf & Country Club managing to survive all comers and take home the $5000 KO prize.
The Bonus $1000 KO2 comp is still in progress where 71 people remain alive. These tippers will need to tip throughout the finals series until a winner can be determined.
Some great new prizes were introduced in 2015 in the 'Team Supporter' sub comps. See below for list of winners.
A Sportspick branded bar fridge in team colours goes out to all the winners.
Note: # indicates that the winner was determined by the margin score tiebreaker.
Don't forget that the NRL Finals comp starts this week. Look for the button with the NRL trophy on the tipping terminal to submit your Finals tips. It's free to enter and you will be aiming to not only tip the winner but also get as close to the winning margin in the first match each week to take out the $1000 prize.
Remember also that the Brownlow Medal tipping comp is open for tipping on Wednesday 16th Sept. and the count takes place on Monday 28th Sept. It's Free to enter so have a go. SportsPig's tip this year is Nat Fyfe from the Fremantle Dockers. He has had a slow second half of the season but should have enough of a cushion by round 14 to take home the chockies. Oink Oink.
The Rugby World Cup starts Saturday Sept 19 and the NFL American footy 13th Sept. Both comps free to enter so get on the Hayne Plane and have a go at the NFL, you have a reason to follow that crazy game now!
Look out for an all new Friday Night Summer Racing comp starting in December 2015! Good Luck with your tipping!
