We normally look for the low hanging fruit in regards to jokes here at PC Headquarters, and that is for a variety of reasons. Mostly, cause it’s easy……
But we can be serious, and we love a good news story, so this week when footage emerged of Mose Masoe throwing a pass during his rehab session in England, we are got a bit mushy. The big fella who used to play in the NRL went down with a spinal injury at the start of the year playing in England and was facing the possibility of never walking again so the fightback to get to this point has been nothing but monumental.
Back to ordinary jokes and probably spelling mistakes next week….

BEST BETS – AFL
Port Adelaide meet Geelong tonight in a potential Grand Final preview. The Cats are on the short backup after Monday night, while the Power is rested after winning one of the games of the season against Richmond last Saturday. Both sides are powering and we don’t think there will be an issue with scoring so our coin is on the Total Points Over 124.5 at $1.87
And on Saturday, Fremantle welcome Carlton who has had a rough couple of weeks, even while playing some impressive bursts of footy. Fremantle got over the Hawks last week and a win would likely go a long way towards either team making a run at the finals. Given its in Perth and Fyfe is back and firing we will be on Fremantle by 39 or less at $2.20
BEST BETS – NRL
Tonight will see the Panthers shooting for nine wins in a row against the Warriors side that got the chocolates for us last week. Penrith was outstanding in their 28-12 win over the Raiders last week and for us, the value is in Total Points Under 38.5 at $1.87 with both sides to cancel each other out somewhat.
The second Friday night game will see St George meet Parramatta who are looking to reclaim top spot. That shouldn’t be a stretch against a Dragons side that has lost 3 in a row and faces injury concerns. St George in a bit of a whitewash for us by 13+ at $1.91.
BEST BETS – HORSES
PB Lawrence at Caulfield Saturday with some handy types getting about and our coin will be on No. 3 Streets Of Avalon. A Group 1 winner with a solid return a few weeks ago in the Bletchingly where he ran a terrific second. Will be fitter for the run and is great value at $8.00.
Our best bet of the day is value too in R5, No.2 Larimer Street. He had a great 2-year-old season and has been well spelled before coming into this. Hasn’t been weighted out of it and the distance ticks the box. The $8.00 on offer also ticks a box or two at our end.
