KIWI CROSSWORDS, TOO…

FIND YOUR GO-TO TIPSTER

Another new Sportsword feature will give you an opportunity to assess how we stack up in the tipping stakes across the various codes.

Lining ourselves up against “experts” from major media sites on both sides of the Tasman, we plan to compile regular tables highlighting the leading tipsters.

With Super rugby in recess during the June Tests window — and the NRL navigating this always-tricky State of Origin period — we reckon we’re in pretty good shape:
