PWJ Posted May 2 Share Posted May 2 ROUND 17 - Sat May 6 The penultimate round of the comp sees us take in 4 venues just to keep you all on your toes. Sure to be wet tracks in NZ and quite possibly at both our Aussie venues. Just 4 teams left that can win the comp and none are meeting in this round. The Reapers and Kelly's Heroes each have a regular Joker left. I get the feeling the Reapers will hold off to play it at the Factory showdown on the last day but The Heroes may well fancy their chances against the Believers. The Coyotes have a better aggregate than the table leaders and an upset against The Reapers may be on the cards. Elsewhere the Desperados face an in-form Max Factory work force but simply need to get a result and preferably a big one against Max's lot. The Desperados are in a tricky situation where their only chance to play their Triple Joker is in the final round against Kelly's Heroes - but only if the Heroes remain above them. If the Heroes lose to the Believers and the Desperados score a significant win over the Maxis then that possibility may evaporate ! Finally longshot hopes The Dream Team simply have to score a big win against the luckless Ramones to stay in contention. The Ramones have the dreaded Wooden Spoon destiny hanging over their head so plenty of motivation for that reason. That won't be easy. The Union Jacks choice of a Bye Round match to take on looks a thorny one. HTH of the day ? Not easy to pick but Tom & Craig have each won 8 matches and look evenly matched. Should be a good one. Graeme and Magnificent Seven member Antz have 19 wins between them and that clash should also be a beauty.... Lastly an observation: The top two teams - The Reapers & Kelly's Heroes are strongly represented in the Serendipitous Six while the out-of-contention Union Jacks and Believers are likewise in The Unfortunate Five category. Probably indicative of how the comp has gone for these 4 teams Close off at 11.00 a.m. (NZ time) - note the early start ! Races are: 1.
