"Average" is the best word to describe the tipping game for Round 7. Several of our tipsters floated around the 4/8 mark, with Az and Sam dragging up the average score.
As mentioned, Az and our Twitter Tipster Sam outscored everyone this week, with 6/8 correct. Justin and Tim managed 5/8, while almost everyone else scored 4/8. Almost everyone, excluding Paul, who only managed 3/8.
The Coin toss still leads the way on 32, showing the unpredictability of the competition in 2014.
Just to remind you who's who, our full list of tipsters are below.
From our news team, Tim, Az, Justin and Coby will ‘help' you make your decision on who to back each week. Take our advice at your peril. Paul Mitry will also be sending through his tips - whether you take is advice is completely up to. For the most part we're notoriously terrible tippers, and for that reason we've thrown in a couple of extra ‘tippers' to help you make your decision.
Our very own Lady Luck will give her thoughts on the game, from a female (casually interested) rugby league supporter's perspective.
The League Guru has looked through the Front Row Forums, and made his decision based on popular opinion from our exclusive game day spoilers polls. Call him the voice of the people if you will. The man who knows what the people are thinking, and follows their lead blindly in to every battle.
Next up, we've grabbed one of our followers from Twitter and asked them to give us their tips for the weekend. This week for the Twitter team, we've got Liam (@batmagann), a Dragons fan.
Lastly, we've got a Coin Toss. Perhaps the least scientific method available, but also probably the most likely to be accurate. Yes, just in case you're too lazy to jump up and find a coin to flip to place your tips for the weekend, we've done the hard work for you. We've found a coin, flipped it (heads = home team), and collated the results. Easy.
