Get Newsletter betting challenge - Round 9

Technical troubles cost Howie Kahn in last weekend’s betting challenge, but he has gone for some brave picks this week as he looks to finish the second four-week block on a high.

I’m chasing the game a bit, with Sportbilly streaking ahead… and Gareth Rosslee getting in the positives and just ahead of me (by R7).

I’ve placed a few cheeky bets and varied things a bit – in terms of try-scorers, winning margins and scoring plays; with a bit of luck, perhaps I can catch Mr Billy…

This is how things stand at present in terms of net gain/loss from the new R1000 investment:
– Sportbilly (@sportbillysays) R351.50
– Gareth (@GarethRosslee) R52.00
– Howie (@howiekahn) R45.00
– Schalk (@SI_Schalk) -R605.05
