As I settle in to the start of the NRL finals I can't help but reflect on my top8 prediction. Just a quick reminder that JBs NRL top eight were:
Apart from panthers instead of eels (which I pointed out in the discussion) I had all the right teams in the 8 and apart from Storm/Titans and Knights/Broncos they were in the right order.
Final note, the 'touched by an eagle' fantasy comp as you may remember had the captain close to 800 points in front leading to the sad panda to declare that its over. Well at the end of the regular season the scoreboard is:
I makes me a sad panda 14302
Harassment panda 11315
The sad pandas lead has been cut down to 307 points. With 9 finals games left I sure as hell will be hoping to see the sad panda cry!
