ROUND 7 (FINAL) - Sat Apr 30

 This is it ! Grand Final Day !

The Magpies are in the box seat and can guarantee they are Champions with a 4 point win (given the aggregate chasm) - that's a win with two bonus points (so 5-zip without a profit or 4-1 with a team profit).  However they face no easy task as they take on a Turbos side which bounced back in style downing the Swampies last week with a Joker play in tow after a pasting from the Highlanders the week before.

The 'Pies main opposition is of course those tough Southern lads - the Highlanders - whose form may be tailing off, going down to the previous "tail-end charlies" The Blues last week. Quite simply their task is to score 3 points more than The Magpies this week to take out the Championship (barring a Swampies miracle) so they will be cheering for those Manawatu lads at every turn.

The Swamp Foxes are 7 points off the lead but with a J2 Joker in their arsenal they have the potential to rack up 10 points. Given their aggregate is actually superior to that of the Magpies, a 4 point haul (double to 8 ) may be enough to take down the 'Pies.  Their opposition is the deceptive Ferdies side who are only firing on 3 cylinders (with two members utterly out of form and about to be sent to the Waitara freezing works) but go into the last day with a mathematical chance of winning ! Baffling bovines for sure...

The Ferdies are 100/1 needing the Magpies & Highlanders to lose horribly while the 'Naki need to gun down the Swamp Foxes to the tune of 5-zip with a ridiculous team profit aggregate score at least $1600 better than the Magpies !! 

The last match is the usually spiky Battle of Wellsford featuring the comp's two most disappointing sides: the Blues and the cellar-dwelling Kauri Kats. Not many points between them but massive pride and bragging rights are up for grabs. The Captains themselves, champion sledgers in their own right, get to slog it out on a personal level in a head-to-head to make it even more interesting. Just who will end the comp with their tail between their legs ? Answers on a postcard please !

This week we encounter an almost guaranteed dry track at Te Rapa and avoid the tricky Victoria/NSW tracks and head off to sunny Brisbane and end the comp wrapped up against a cold Southerly at Adelaide's Morphettville track. Form study needed for sure.

Best wishes from everyone to Rex.

Can the "King" reclaim his title as the Head Honcho of the Magnificent Seven ? We shall see...

Good luck everyone !
