2018 Uglybustards Underway with Unfurling of Flag

yes all youse Uglybustards the 2018 season is well and truly underway as we're 5 rounds down and its already a tipsters nightmare!!!  This week we see the presentation of the 2017 Uglybustards Cup to last year's winner Griggsy, who will be doing a lap of honour at the Round 6 Geelong Vs Sydney game at Kardinia Park this Saturday 28th April at 1:45pm.  Be sure to tune in so you don't miss it.

2017 Winner Griggsy

Griggsy was off like a shot in his 2018 title defence picking the full card in R1 and getting the 5 point bonus.  But Rod "The Tilt" Carter had reeled him in by round 4 and maintains a 3 point lead at the end of round 5.   The Ox holds 3rd spot but only by a close margin from SweetCaroline, ahead of a tight bunch including Anthony AielloBUDGEWOISFINESTThe Gee Thingy'sArnold LayneFlopalot and 2016 Champ Mik.  Such is the toughness of 2018 Griggsy remains the only one to pick the full card so far.

Griggsy Grabs Grand Final Glory 2017

In a brutal low scoring season of tipping the Uglybustards Board is proud to announce that the 2017 Uglybustards Premiership Title has been taken out by Griggsy who claims his 2nd Cup since entering the expanded Uglybustards Tipping competition in 2011.  With two Premierships under his belt in just 7 years the controversial move by Uglybustards to allow ex-umpires from Tasmania into the competition has certainly paid off.  Maybe the AFL will sit up and take notice.

Uglybustard Goes AWOL for 2017 GF

With just two weeks left in the 2017 season, I'm off to the land of the Goat and miss the prelims and the Grannie!!!! I wish it was the land of the Lethal Leigh Mathews GOAT, but instead its the land of the four-legged variety in farway Greece, where once again the Uglybustards Board of Directors have sent me in search of new recruits.  Baaahhh.
