#TuesdayTally – Week Five

As you saw last week, just one of our correspondents was sitting at 1.000 in 2017. AND HE’S STILL THERE THIS WEEK. We’re going to take a special look at Rob Amor, King of Predictions, and pour scorn on the rest.

Percentage wise, we stay the same as last week, going 14-5 the last weekend.

As we already said, Rob sits atop the mountain at the moment, with only Will within one game of him. How did he get there? Only a select few that he was raised to predict the outcome of games from birth. Showing incredible foresight that there would be a niche market for British amateur American football in thirty years time, his parents would make him study the results and standings every night after school, sitting him down next to a big pile of First Down magazines after school until he had a prediction rate of 90% by the age of FIVE.

At one point on Sunday, he must’ve thought he’d thrown it away. Rob backed Sandwell and Nottingham to come out on top, but at half time, the Caesars trailed 6-0 to the Jets, and the Steelers trailed the Falcons 21-7. But like Bo Jackson, Rob knows. His picks came in, and going into Week Six, remains at 1.000 whilst covering arguably the most competitive division in football.

Another fourth quarter comeback in a Wolves – Pirates game cost Oheeul dearly once more in the Prem North. Grant picked the winner in his second Hornets – Exiles match up this season, while James slipped a little, failing to see a win for the rookie Worcestershire Black Knights.


Call of the Week

Going against the narrative to back his former team, Chris correctly picked the Oxford Saints to come out on top over the in-form Ouse Valley Eagles in a result that cracks the SFC1 Central wide open. We’ll ignore his selection of the South Wales Warriors for now though…

SFC1 Central - Chris Fox



Gareth Thomas

Gareth has played for the Birmingham Bulls and Sandwell Steelers, and as a frustrated offensive play-maker craves only the sweet rush that comes with interceptions. He joined Double Coverage at the request of Rob Amor and is only here until he's picked up by ESPN or Sports Illustrated.
