2017 Winners

9 October 2017

The Champion Freight 2017 NRL and Super Rugby tipping competition has now concluded and we have a winner!

Congratulations to The Phantom!

As The Phantom is ineligible to win any money, the $500 seasonal prize is awarded to Postman in second position. No hard feelings Phantom!

Top 3 placings:

  • 1st Place - 233 pts The Phantom (winner)
  • 2nd Place - 228 pts Postman (wins $500)
  • 3rd Place - 226 pts Rogue

During the course of the season the following tipsters each received the $100 monthly prize.

  • April - JD
  • May - Postman
  • June - Wiremu
  • July - Midia
  • August - Merkin

In total, winners shared in $1000 in cash prizes. Champion Freight wishes to thank everyone for their participation, and for making the rugby league and union competitions so entertaining.

As for The Phantom... Some say he (or indeed she) is a ghost, but no one really knows. Like Top Gear's 'The Stig', The Phantom is an enigma.

2016 Winners

3 October 2016

With $900 up for grabs the stakes were high, as 20 participants jostled it out for the ultimate tipping prize. In the end, it was a nail-biter with two tipsters sharing first place.

Congratulations to the winners!

1st Place (273 points)
Postman
Casper
Each receive $400

2nd Place (270 points)
Bring Back Buck
Receives $100

As per the competition rules...

"In the unlikely event of multiple placement winners, subsequent lower tier prizes will be absorb (comparable in number to each shared winner) and divided equally between these parties. For example, if there are x2 competition winners in 1st place, they will be awarded 2nd place prize money in addition to 1st place takings (total $800). The new sum will be split equally amongst them ($400 ea), with the previous 2nd place winner awarded 3rd place prize money ($100). In such an occurrence, the tipster in 3rd place will not be awarded any prize money."

Champion Freight wishes to thank everyone for their participation, and for making the rugby league and union competitions so entertaining.

As for The Phantom... despite an initial burst out of the gates, he (or indeed she) was unable to hold on for a placement. It’s a performance that’s been likened to Australian’s infamous choker, Greg Norman, who somehow turned a six stroke lead into a crushing defeat at the 1996 Masters.
