Couple of quickies as events start to move from league phase to play-offs.

Aussie Rules
League phase over and playoffs start next weekend.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_A...#Finals_series
Geelong (mdoug), Collingwood (limpwhacker, RichieM, shrapnel) and Richmond (11 picks) all qualified in the Top 4. Geelong are home to Collingwood next week whilst popular pick Richmond are away to Brisbane.
Winners will qualify for home semi-finals (and lock up 1 point in this game) whilst the losers will get a second chance against the teams who win the 5th to 8th place play-offs. It's complicated but sexy.

Cricket T20
Much simpler with the Top 4 in each group qualifying for the quarter-finals.
Surrey, Hampshire and Somerset all failed to make it.

That leaves Notts (pokerhand, bluezar, Lao Lao) and Sussex (Flushdraw, bohsman, limpwhacker, 6starpool) as the only ones still in the hunt for points. Their quarter-finals take place on Thursday and Friday this week.

Djokovic retiring from his round of 16 match today takes a lot of people out of the points for the US Open

Can I change my rugby winners to New Zealand.

Need to start protecting second rather than trying to catch mdoug at this stage

Everyone on NZ at the moment then, though that makes it a superduper differential for anyone with the balls to change. Just sayin', not advising.

I'd gladly switch to South Africa if I could. That's where all my money is

This has come to pass, and will take place next Friday lunch-time. Have to feel it's a must-win for Richmond if mdoug is to be caught. Collingwood in the other semi-final.

On the grounds that shrapnel is our resident rugby expert (and I need to bink a result or two)

My second change. Rugby World Cup winners - change from NZ to South Africa.

Next to finish is the Aussie Rules in the early hours of Saturday morning. Eliminated in the semi-final were Geelong and Collingwood who will settle for a point each. Richmond (11 picks) have a chance to turn 2 points into 4 against unpicked Western Sydney.
Also ending soon is the volleyball -last 16 knockout stage today, finishing Sunday.
