We were right about six of our eight guesses for Round 10 of the Toyota 2019 AFL Premiership competition.
But, there were nine games, you say?
Something distracted us and we completely missed the game between the Greater Western Sydney Giants and the Melbourne Demons at MCG. A sure thing missed due to our lack of focus.
A 75 percent strike rate sounds impressive, does it not?
It was a fairly easy fixture in most regards. Scoring may be down, in fact, in Round 10, only the North Melbourne Kangaroos scored more than 100 points. It was only three clubs exceeding 100 points in Round 9.
At this rate, we might expect to see Round 23 offer some NRL-like scores, or, shudder, a soccer score.
So, we had $800 of play money at stake. We lost $100 on the Roos – Dogs game and $100 on the one-point win by the Fremantle Dockers against the Brisbane Lions.
Our dividends equated to $932, with $600 of staked money coming back to us, our result was $1,532.
Not bad, but we will go to our graves ruing the unintended error of skipping the Giants – Demons game.
Our heads are high and our chests stuck out over the $224 we picked up from the West Coast Eagles beating the favoured Adelaide Crows at the Adelaide Oval.
Our big mistakes were taking the Dogs over the Roos and the Lions over the Dockers.
We thought the Swans hosting the Pies at SCG was an easy one, but the Swans made us sweat.
If we could, we would contact each and every one of the Brisbane Lions and express our dissatisfaction with their effort in Perth.
Round 11 is the last round before the byes begin. We will be back soon with our guesses, but this time, we will be certain to make nine selections, the same number as we have fingers and toes.
