And the results are in...
Richmond winning, which no one tipped, means the Sunday night results stand as they were.
BOOT gets the fourth only, bang-on-the-money pick for the year. Well done.
He is the third player to to this, after Coldogs (once) and Clinton_V8 (twice in the same round).
Oh, and he also gets a 5-0 result too.
Otherwise it was 'soccer scores'all round.
Team Of The Week:
It just has to be TheHolyBoot this week. A 5-0 win and the most correct tip possible scores him his third nomination.
Table After 9 Matches:
WAL holds top spot again, with COL still just behind.
Moving up to threaten the top is BOOT
At the rear of the field, AMUL leaps from 10th to 6th, and is a game outside the 5.
A few others have work to do to dig themselves out of the non-finalist holes.
You wonder if those holes are too big for CLINT and MARK.
Updated with all the tips.
Its the round that finishes the top half of the draw. After this week, every one has played everyone else once. This will give us a good idea where the teams sit, and maybe a look to the finalists

This weeks match-ups:
DavPope (L) -v- TheHolyBoot (D)
4 vs 6 in a fight to hold a finals slot. The Boot has been a consistent tipper, but was let down by last week.
Dave is the quite achiever of the competition, with moderate scoring levels and a 3-1-4 record.
A_OKeefe (W) -v- Clinton_V8 (W)
Clinton in 8th need to keep winning to climb into finals contention.
5th placed AOK is hitting some form and needs to win to hang onto to finals spot
SidebySidePies (D) -v- Coldogs (W)
The Pies need to click and get a few more wins on board, as 7th place is not good enough.
Meanwhile, 2nd placed Col is on fire with three wins in a row, and averaging just under 7 points in that period. He will take some stopping.
MarkDuffett (L) -v- Amul82 (L)
Time to roll out the tired old cliche... its an 8 point game here for Mark in 9th and Amul in 10th. A loss will be difficult to overcome for these two, who also are handicapped by terrible scoring differences (-15 and -20). The time for both is now!
AFLFootyMaths (L) -v- Wal13Freo (W)
This is vying for match-of-the-round status... the 3rd placed former leader against the new leader. It is on for young and old... well mostly old if I know Wal and myself well enough!
