Round 7 (FINAL) - Saturday November 6

This is it ! The final showdown and incredibly 7 of the 8 teams can still become Spring NPC Champions. Just two meetings to concentrate on - the final day at Flemington and the opening day of the much-awaited Canterbury meeting. If the Waikato Chiefs can beat the Swampies then the comp is most likely theirs but the Thames Valley crew will be no pushover and bring their Joker to the party. Any slip-up by the Chiefs and those HB Magpies will swoop for the kill but they face no easy task trying to take down early highflyers - the Otago Highlanders. The Turbos can't win it but will be out to spoil the Auckland Blues who will look to come home with a wet sail and Howie at the prow arms spread (bit like Rose in Titanic 😅)with a Joker in his fingertips. Almost forgotten are the battlers from the provinces - The Taranaki Ferdies and the Northland Kauri Kats - who face off in a double-headed Joker clash which if one of them can secure a maximum points win, will see that side descend from the clouds on the unsuspecting frontrunners....

 

As an aside there are a few contenders for the comp's top scorer among the Magnificent Seven while I note Sharne continues to bewitch her opponents - Craig falling victim last week while this week she seeks to beguile poor old Tom from the 'Naki. Talking of Craig, he is all that stands between Hesi and an unbeaten record for the entire comp.

Wrinkles has probably set some sort of record heading the Magnificent Seven and The Unfortunate Five simultaneously - never a dull match against this fella !

Any post-Final Day predictions people ?

Highest potential scores in brackets

1st 14.5 CHIEFS* $7531.60 (19.5) 

2nd 14 MAGPIES* $6594.20(19)

3rd 11.5 SWAMP FOXES# $6684.20(21.5)

4th 9.5 BLUES# $6959.40(19.5)

5th 9 HIGHLANDERS#* $5729.60(14)

6th 8 FERDIES# $5627.20(18)

7th 7 KAURI KATS# $5199.00(17)

8th 5 TURBOS* $5279.20(10)

Too many scenarios

Chiefs and the Magpies have that gap on the field, but both risk losing a point with their Black Adder.  A 2 point win to either would see them on 16.5/16 respectively

Swamp Foxes could easily achieve a 6 pointer, but that would take them to 17.5, so they are probably faves

Blues are going to need an 8 pointer, which is a big ask, possibly a 6 pointer but with other results going their way

Highlanders would need a 5 pointer and lots of other things to go their way

Ferdies and Kats are both going to need possibly 8 pointers, but 10 definitely to put them in a definite winning position

Turbos can't win unfortunately

Any post-Final Day predictions people

 

 

Personally I think there are only 3 realistic chances

Our Black Adder has no impact on our match

If we (Chiefs) win I think we will win it, no easy task against the Swamp Foxes that’s a bloody solid looking team they have

The Magpies the other big chance

Only if you win. If you lose and fail to score points Ian, it will cost you a one point deduction.

Yes, if you lose and score no points, you drop half a point behind us if we lose.  We can still lose and score 1 or 2 points, which would take us to 15 or 16.

If you lose, then the Swampies must score a minimum 4 points, which would take them to 15.5.

So yes black adder has no impact on you
