Footy Tips Winners



While  we (or me anyway) are hoping to be grinners after tonight's game these guys are grinners already Mitch, Rocky and One of the Best.  And of course they are out Footy Tipping Competition winners this year.

Here they are collecting their prizes with a grin from ear to ear.  Well done fellas!!

Our first time winner Mitch collecting his little ODV Sherrin and $800




Rocky also grabbing the ODV Sherrin and $400.  This is the second time in a couple of years that he has come runner up.  But he said I don't mind continuing being a bridesmaid scoring 4 hundy each time!



Couldn't quite get the big ranking smile ouf of OOTB but he was certainly chuffed at scoring the$100 and the Mini Sherrin.  As his call sign said he certainly was One Of The Best.

One Of The Best



Breaking News - Interest Rate Update

The RBA has opted to leave the official cash rate on hold at 1.5%.

At its board meeting today the Reserve Bank of Australia decided to once again leave the official cash rate unchanged for the 12th consecutive month.

The RBA avoided the temptation to follow other developed economies and increase rates, taking into account the impact this would have on the Australian dollar and therefore tourism and other exports. Other factors considered would have been sluggish consumer spending and record low wages growth which have led to lower than desired inflation and fears that housing construction is set to slow.
