    Last Man Standing: 2008 NRL Season (Finals)

    Basically exactly the same idea as the football one, except using Australia's leading football code.

    For those of you not acquainted with the idea the rules are very straightforward: everyone who enters selects a team from the NRL each week, if they win you stay in but if they lose or draw, you're out. You can only select the same side once in each running of the competition (so if you select, say, St George this week & they win you cannot select them again). The last person left in the competition wins...

    Fixtures for the weekend:

    Penrith v Manly
    St George v Brisbane
    Sydney Roosters v Newcastle
    North Queensland v Cronulla
    Melbourne v Souths
    Gold Coast v Canberra
    NZ Warriors v Bulldogs
    Wests v Parramatta


    Any selection made before the game kicks off is accepted.

    I'll take the Storm to beat the Bunnies this week.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    OK, I'm in Brumby. The Warriors who will be playing someone who can actually catch a football on the wing and break their 4 game losing streak at home to the equally awful Bulldogs

    Ah, you misunderstand. It only means I can't pick the Storm again next week (or any subsequent weeks), everyone else can still tip them.

    Sorry if that wasn't clear.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!
