The “Experts” predict – Forager Sydney Triathlon Premier League
This season, Triathlon NSW staff will be providing their “expert” opinions on how the Triathlon NSW Forager Interclub Leagues will unfold.
The three “experts” are CEO, Adam Wicks (AW). Operations Manager, Chris Cunningham (CC) and Marketing Manager, Alana Leabeater (CL).
All three will be predicting how the league tables will finish come the end of the season and which club will win each round. They will predict for each of the eight Triathlon Leagues.
A correct pick is worth one point. Whoever gets the most points over the season will be the winner.
Office bragging rights are on the line!!!
Chris famously predicted that Jervis Bay Dolphins would finish last in their league last season…they went on to win it! So take our predictions for what they are…educated guesses that will more than likely be proven wrong.
Feel free to play along at home.
