A new weekly tipping comp from our man in Canberra

Richard Farmer is a Tasmanian who bounded his way to Canberra in the Menzies era. He is one of the great lunch partners of all time. (More on that later).

Those who were at lunch at the Clyde Hotel in Carlton with him a couple of years ago will remember his wonderful story-telling. Well, that’s how he writes as well.

He loves sport, and has a long association with footy. He loves politics, wine, food, conversation and so on as well.

Richard has established a Footy Almanac weekly tipping comp which he’s hosting on his excellent website politicalowl. It has a its own features which will no doubt appeal. And it starts again each week, So you don’t fall behind.  Have a crack here.
