What a sterling Grand Final finish coming up !

'The James Gang' with 5 BB pairings coming up in the last, as gthey launch a swashbuckling barnstorming finish !

Can the 'MTF' hold firm. Back from 1-4 down, but it well-and-truly ain't over yet.

Gonna be a cracker finish, folks ! 👍

You got it right with Trumbull .... PJ.'

'MTF' will be very pleased if you get it right with 'Sure Knee' as well ! 😀
 

You're a very astute, judge, PJ.

But then .... we always knew that. 👍

To win:

The James Gang need-

Prairie Fire to win for Pete and Jack (Craig will beat Hesi also) but must pay $6.00+ or Kordia complete the Q

OR

Kordia to win for Jack (must pay $3.90+ or Prairie Fire complete the Q)

PJ, I believe that my Jack has Kordia best-betted, so a win will be sufficient regardless of price.
I'm thinking Kordia is the big chance for 'The James Gang', and at $2.70 on Fixed the public think so too.

Great game, great finish !

WOW!!!!!

I have a bittersweet feeling in celebrating an amazing victory after getting my ass well and truly handed to me!

Zac you were superb and the whole MTF team can take a bow for such a thrilling afternoon.... I think my neighbours thought they heard someone getting murdered the yelling that was coming from my lounge.

To the James Gang - you are all stars and such a great bunch of guys. Truly a privilege to be a part of the team. We said right from the first round we would come with a stayers run and we did although we hit the front a tad early but fought back under a hard ride!

Finally to PJ - thank you for all of your efforts. So many here comment on this comp and others you run and they are correct in all detail. You deserve the highest praise..Hip Hip Hooray.

The Squirrel will now go and ice his nuts which may have become overheated!

Magnificent game ! 👍

I though Kordia was battling there for a while, but way too good in the end.

A very big, big congratulations to Jack, Pete, Hesi, Stevie P, and Blind Squirrel ! Very worthy CHAMPIONS ..... controlled the match for much of the day, withstood a very strong late challenge from us 'MTF' and ultimately just that little bit too good. 

After being in front for most of the day 'The James Gang' were needing a hero to step up ... and long-time stalwart Jack fitted the bill perfectly. A hero , just as the Zac Attack was last Saturday for the 'MTF'. So 'The James Gang' ...fourth and final berth into the Championship Round ..... but too good for very strong opposition, first the 'Five-Oh' and finally the 'Much Too Fast'.


Stevie P played an absolute blinder today, but the whole team stood up and did sterling stuff this back end of the comp, the sharp end of the comp.

I can't have wished for a better group of "teamies" - my MTF buddies - Rex, Craig, Ashoka, Zac. After 159 races over 4 months we were just the 1 race away from wiinning this thing.
A great effort "buddies", especially the way we fought back from 1-4 deficits in both our Semi-Final and in the Final !  All my team-mates were great, but I feel inspired to give a special "shout-out' to the Zac Attack, last player into our squad of 5 but established himself as an absolute superstar. Brilliant stuff, Zac. You may even have topped 'The Magnificent Seven.'

Thanks PJ for your brilliant performance running this comp, scoring, commentating .... it was legendary stuff, and very much appreciated. Took our minds off the pandemic and lockdowns and restrictions.


Thank you to all players in the 8 teams who took part. 

It was an excellent comp ...and I believe that both 'The James Gang' and the 'Much Too Fast' did justice to an enthralling Grand Final. 👍

'Much Too Fast' ... you can stand down now. 'Mighty Blues'...here I come.  Pete will be winning back-to-back comps ! 😀

Cheers
Howie
