Spring Super Comp MARKET

A changing of the guard market, with so many out of form in the Winter Comp

$4 Turbos -  With sharp shooters Steve Paul, Zig and Gary all bringing good form from Winter, watch the sparks fly.  The  Blind Squirrel is skip so should raise his game and find a nut, and of course the immortal Ray, who has been around since day one, coming off bad form, but disregard him at your peril.  I'm picking this team to win, in a very hard field to assess

$5 Swamp Foxes - The lethal Maria is back, and that means this team becomes a force to be reckoned with.  Rees had a poor Winter comp, but we have all seen how he can rack up points like Hurricane Higgins on a roll.  Our Maizcay brings good form and a keen eye for a winning horse.  Punter Pete was also just average, but could easily top the aggregates.  GOJ is out, but that gives a chance potentially for a purr to turn into a roar, with a reserve coming off the couch

$7 Ferdies - The problem child.  PJ is well out of form, and we can't make him do any more laps, because it's his comp.  Back in the company of dyed in the wool Taranakians such as Moz and Heather, could well be the catalyst for a reigniting of form.  If it is not, beware a mid comp leadership challenge from Heather, it's in the bag on that one.  Zac rejoins the comp, and has killed it in these comps before, and then the redoubtable Tom, a poor last comp, but he is a bit of an ace this guy

$9 Kauri Kats - High fliers before in these comps, but Jen and Pam have been out of touch, Sharne and Graeme, only just average, and the Moet guzzler, just can't seem to put it together for more than one round.  Put them all together in the melting pot, and they seem to gel(or do they turn into gloop), so could go close to taking this comp out.  And Max doesn't have to worry about turning up for drafts

$10 Highlanders - A team of skilled, hardcore, but mainly out of form selectors in Craig, the Robber, the Irishman, Rex and yours truly, well almost, who should test the mettle of any team.  Rex is the key here, he comes off a high scoring aggregate Winter Comp, and could lift this team to a victory.  Would be a nice boost for him, we'll try and do it for you Rex.

$12 Blues - Led by Captain Pete, and I will stick with the tag of the good the bad and the ugly, after 2 superb $600 plus rounds, killing the aggregates till the last round, but 4 $100 or less rounds.  But, the heart and soul is missing from the team this time, with Blues Bros Howie and Geoff MIA. Replaced by 2 excellent players in the Moose man(can he roar) and the Smiling assassin..  And of course Gordy who will relish the baubles of captaincy being lifted  A big ask to replace the bros, can they do it, maybe, maybe not

$15 Magpies - Former champs, superbly led by Ian and Stevie, who both have come off good Winter Comps.  Back together, brothers in arms, but money ain't for nothing in this comp, you got to work for it.  Richie comes off a poor Winter Comp, the other Squirrel is not in form, and Jason may need a run or 3 to find form.  This team not the behemoth of old, so I'm picking a changing of the guard, the Magpies maybe left squawking towards the back of the field

$20 Chiefs - Almost everyone is out of form in this team, and Robert will need a run, having been out for a Winter spell, probably working on the tan in some exotic location.  But we all know the credentials of Gee, Jack and the Lightning flash.  Tassie is newish and maybe adjusting to the crash and bash of these comps, from the far flung fields of Boonland
I'm picking these guys to finish last, but they could just as easily finish first

For the benefit of those who don't know ...this is an 'extended family' photo...aka  the KKK (Kauri Kats Kousins)...clearly taken prior to one of Maxi's Moet bashes...(if it had been afterwards, the eyes would've looked less alert). Sharne Pam and Jen did try to replicate the pic once or twice, but fell in a heap.

Jammo, he has his pussy boots on ready to venture into the Swamp and make friends with the Foxes. Could all work serenely or go horribly wrong.....
