    JACOB HOST CONFERENCE

    2022 ELIMINATOR - Page 8 Elim1612

    The Turpinators vanquished opponent would've been STANDING AND APPLAUDING the bold choice to captain Hynes. Although next opponent Twin Turbo scored more even with captaining the Chin, so watch out.

    The Aardvarks continues to score strongly and faces fellow Souths supporter Pacey's Best next, after he finally ended Flithridden's improbable run through the eliminator.

    BLAKE LAWRIE CONFERENCE

    2022 ELIMINATOR - Page 8 Elim1613

    Top remaining seed Pretty Pretty Pretty Good still in it with a narrow victory, and faces Boozecluez next

    Also look at the balls on the guy captaining Manu. Sydney Eagles - a team name combining the universally hated Sydney Roosters with the universally hated Manly Sea Eagles is a choice - will face Trajan next, who benefitted from his own captain choice (Tedesco)

    Good luck to you too AR. I don't like my chances. And again, thank you Robelgordo for doing this.

    THE SWEET SIXTEEN
    This table shows the remaining 16, in order of seeding (set after R15) and with their rank and rank change now (after R20).

    2022 ELIMINATOR - Page 8 Ranks10

    In theory, you would expect a decent correlation between rank improvement and success in the Eliminator.

    That is mostly the case, with 12/16 improving rank, and about half of them making significant gains. But there are a few other factors to consider:

    1. If you're highly ranked, its harder to make gains E.g. Aardvark Ratnick has lost 1 place in the FOG, but is clearly still doing very well.
    2. Luck/variance - you can win 3/4 H2Hs without being an outstanding team just on having some favourable matchups e.g. you score badly 2 weeks that coincides with your opponent shitting the bed.
    3. R17 was a bye week in NRL and Eliminator, so H2H players could have a crappy FOG rank improvement because they ignored that round but still gunned the weeks that matter.

    I'll do some Feature Matchups previews tomorrow or Thurs.

    Going to be a very tight matchup given the extremely limited PODs between Big Show & I

    Big Show: Grant, Fifita, Hughes, Cleary Replacement*
    Camo: BBrailey, Tapine, Elliot, DBrown

    Not looking good with Tapine ruled out

    Need a massive Hynes captain + probably 60s from Ming and Brailey

    Congrats OZ Sport Mad, good luck as you continue on.

    And a big feck you to Angus for derailing my Eliminator hopes. Was going Cleary to Murray but had Cleary at 17 and Angus at 18. I think taking the 79 was the right move and would do it again but definitely a sliding doors moment, along with C choice hurting.

    Blowing some trades this week in an attempt to stop the slide.

    Thanks Al.

    And no need to wish me luck - it's pretty fair to say I've already been well and truly kissed on the old fella by a fairy.

    Having a fairly poor year, so might as well try and focus on this eliminator - thanks robelgordo for organising.

    R4 RESULTS and QF DRAW
    Huge scoring week, partying like its 2020 again. With 16 left, one quarter of the field went over 1100, and the same number under 1000.

    MITCH AUBUSSON CONFERENCE

    2022 ELIMINATOR - Page 8 Elimr410

    Actual game footage from The Big Sh0w beating Rudolf the Red-Nosed Rein Dearden
    2022 ELIMINATOR - Page 8 Giphy

    Congrats to @Monty_Burns and commiserations to @Camo123, who has provided tremendous value with his shit talking throughout.

    Meanwhile on the other side BroncOz (@Oz Sport Mad) continues his improbable run to glory, defeating Hal's Haasholes. Poor @AL was both the highest scoring loser, AND the narrowest losing margin. Unlucky.

    So quarter final #1, played for the Mitch Aubusson Mirror Ball, is set:

    The Big Sh0w (32) v BroncOz (168)

    I make no apologies for the font size in that match announcement!

    CAPTAIN ISAAKO CONFERENCE

    2022 ELIMINATOR - Page 8 Elimr411

    Plain sailing for the winners here.

    Bish's Beasts managed the top Eliminator score for the round with 1141. They were #1 in the FOG for July (8th overall), and that form has continued into August. That marks the end of Shizzle My Nizzle's giantkilling run (@StuDogg101)

    Next up for @UKJC - @thelastdodo, who was too good for JMs Delights (@Jumping Marlin).

    Quarter final #2, played for the Captain Isaako Rusty Turnstile, is set:

    thelastdodo (37) v Bish's Beasts (13)

    JACOB HOST CONFERENCE

    2022 ELIMINATOR - Page 8 Elimr412

    Two Souths supporters, but only The Aardvarks had the Murray and Mitchell combo and that was a big part of @Aardvark Ratnick defeating @Pacey's Best

    Meanwhile the mysterious The Turpinators (@Jake Turban) upset TwinTurbo (@Cap'n Ranta), setting up Quarter Final 3 as:

    The Aardvarks (3) v The Turpinators (75)

    The fixture is played for the prestigious Jacob Host Fence Post.

    BLAKE LAWRIE CONFERENCE

    2022 ELIMINATOR - Page 8 Elimr413

    The workhorse conference delivered two cracking 1100+ scores.

    No surprises to see Pretty Pretty Pretty Good racking up a very very very good score again in accounting for @Boozecluez.

    But @DarkKnight won't have it easy next week - Sydney Eagles (@TheRookie101) didn't repeat his ballsy Manu captain play this time, but was yet again one of the highest scorers in the Eliminator for the week. This was bad news for @Trajan

    The last quarter-final (#4) is played for the Blake Lawrie Gummi de Football. Carved by artisans who work exclusively in the medium of gummi, it is a full scale replica of the ball with which Lawrie scored his only career try, at Belmore Sports Ground versus the Bulldogs on 29th May 2022. The matchup is:

    Sydney Eagles (26) v Pretty Pretty Pretty Good (2)

    Game previews for all the quarter-finals tomorrow!

    Didn't know you were the previous champ. A very impressive attempt to defend the crown, to get this far
