Foe - where are you????????????????????

Tonight's result:

HAWTHORN HAWKS (Wharfy) 6.2 12.5 16.7 19.11 (125)
FREMANTLE (RAB) 1.2 2.8 5.10 10.12 (72)

The Hawks are looking awesome. With their captain and no. 1 ruckman out, they still managed to annihilate the Dockers in a replay of last year's Grand Final. They led by nearly ten goals at half-time and never let up. Wow!

Mark is the winner of the closest margin (Hawks x 23) so $5.00 going to the McGrath Foundation. Nice work Mark.

Our tipsters' ladder is as follows:

Round 3 (first number is correct number of wins - you want this to be high; number in brackets is the cumulative margin which is used to separate punters on the same amount of points - you want this to be low)

MC on 7 (31)
Sj Brooke (Steve) on 7 (34)
Anita on 7 (35)
Wharf on 7 (43)
Mark K. on 6 (30)
David on 6 (60)
Lez on 6 (76)
Tech on 5 (56)
SussexWelsh on 5 (62)
Val on 5 (70)
RedJohn on 5 (75)
Foe on 5 (86)
Philip on 4 (57)
RAB on 4 (68)
Blastro on 4 (73)

Well done to the top four who fought it out with very close margins.

Charity donations are:
Mark - The McGrath Foundation - A$5.00 (highest score - Dons - 138)
Mark - The McGrath Foundation - A$5.00 (closest margin)
M.C. - Edgar's Mission - A$10.00 (weekly winner)

CUMULATIVE TABLE:

Lez on 22 (124)
Steve on 18 (92)
Wharf on 17 (139)
SussexWelsh on 17 (147)
Val on 17 (150)
Tech on 17 (151)
RedJohn on 17 (153)
Mark K. on 16 (110)
Philip on 16 (163)
Anita on 15 (150)
MC on 15 (164)
Blastro on 14 (195)
RAB on 13 (168)
David E. on 13 (175)
Foe on 13 (184)

Congrats to M.C. for bouncing from the bottom of the table to the top in one easy punt. Meanwhile Lez is the model of consistency from week to week. Good to see the donations being spread around. Good work!
