ETU member and Nilsen Engineering Services electrician Dan Ta has won the ETU footy tipping competition after leading the competition for the first twelve rounds before being knocked out of first place necessitating a comeback late in the season.
Dan said the comp was neck and neck with one other member as they headed into the finals where Dan adopted a strategy to pick the opposite teams to his rival, a strategy which paid off handing Dan Ta victory in the final two rounds.
Dan has won a week’s accommodation in the ETU’s Holiday Cabins located at Nambucca Heads on the NSW north coast. Dan said he is planning to get away sometime next year with his wife and kids where the will enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of the White Albatross Holiday Park where the ETU cabins are located.
When asked what his tip is for ETU members participating in next years’ footy tipping contest Dan said that the Parramatta Eel’s are set to be the Premiers and any member that supports the Eel’s throughout the season will be rewarded.
Details on next year’s footy tipping comp will be provided a couple of weeks before the NRL comp starts.
