Tonight's result:

RICHMOND TIGERS (Philip) 6.3 10.6 12.12 14.14 (98)
CARLTON BLUES (RedJohn) 2.4 5.5 9.7 12.14 (86)

Richmond dominated the game and were up by 37 points at one stage. Then they seemed to run out of puff and the scores were tied with about 4 minutes to go. It was a heart-stopping finish but TheFoe was on the ball, picking the Tigers by 12 points. So $5.00 is going to Hanover Welfare Services. Well done.

Tonight's result:

Essendon 1.5 3.7 9.10 12.14 (86)
Hawthorn 4.1 9.3 9.7 13.12 (90)

Yet another nail biting finish. With Hawthorn up by nearly 6 goals at half-time, suddenly they couldn't score in the third quarter and the Bombers had the lead. With 57 seconds to go, Hawthorn got their nose in front and fell over the line. A champion team but Essendon almost had them. Come on Bombers!

If anyone would like to view the AFL Ladder before submitting next week's tips, it's at

Next week's fixtures are:

Western Bulldogs v Richmond Tigers (in Melbourne)
Adelaide Crows v Sydney Swans (in Adelaide)

Thanks for picking that up! Sunday night's probably not the best time to be imputting figures. I've edited to put Wharfy back where he belongs - and at least he's better placed here than on the Premier league punt!

Apologies for last week Val between my and my dad's hospital appointments I just didn't get to it.
Do I get an average score as in the Weekly Punt?

Hi to one and all, hope the gang is well and happy.

Val H. says:
Thanks MC. I understand that some weeks are just like that. I hope you and your dad are coming along in your treatment. I made an error (another one!) on last week's scores. You should have been on 2 for the week - that is, one less point than the lowest scorer. Better luck this week!
