Summer Super Draft Comp - Round 7 - Sat Feb 26 - selection thread


Recommended Posts

ROUND 7 - Sat Feb 26

Top of the table clash between the juggernaut that is Offngone and the emerging stars - the Wurzels - will dominate Saturday's proceedings. Some fascinating match-ups none less than Rees vs Pete which is sure to yield plenty of trash talk. I see Offngone narrow winners.

The Max Factors and Yahabebees - level on points - each bounced back to win last week and will look to go back-to-back in what looks like a tight tussle. My money is on the Maxis who I reckon will throw in  a Joker. 

The Grey Ways and Hot Baches both failed to score a point last week so they will each be looking to get back in the winning vein. Will the Grey Ways play their Joker or save it for the Reapers or Yabbies ?? Prediction - Hot Baches by the narrowest of margins

Surf N Turf and the Mr Aybees also suffered defeats last week. Surf N Turf have a two point lead over their rivals but the Mr Aybees have a better aggregate. Looks like another close one. SNT are probably trying to decide whether to give their Joker a spin this week or wait in ambush for the Maxis next week.....  SNT to run out narrow victors

If the Grim Reapers can ever turn aggregates into points they would go close to winning the comp. This week they have no pesky HTHs to trouble them. But who will they take on ? No obvious candidates stand out .... over to you Alan.

Captains don't forget: there are 5 Joker cards and 8 Jeopardy chips remaining unused with only 4 rounds remaining

Post your selections here. Remember, two selections per race; one best bet in each country; scratching replacements on a new post (don't edit your original). You won't know your opponents selections until the selection thread is opened up 30 minutes before the start of comp race #1.
