The final siren has been rung for the AFL footy season of the year with the Demons coming out on top but it was a nail bitting finish in the end for the Star Mail’s tipping competition.

Coming in on first place by the smallest of margins was Barry Cripps from Healesville Toyota on a score of 128.

Following along behind him was a draw for second place with Ashleigh Skillern from Yarra Glen Auto and Clint Rose from Clint Rose Motors both narrowly missing the win on 127 points each.

Mr Cripps received a 65 inch Hisense TV donated from the Mail’s sponsor Harvey Norman Chirnside Park.

Both Mr Skillern and Mr Rose received a $250 voucher each to be spent at the Mail’s sponsor Monbulk Jewellers.

All have celebrated the win after years of being tipsters in the competition.

The Mail would like to thank Harvey Norman Chirnside Park and Monbulk Jewellers for sponsoring the prizes and all the tipsters for their support and contribution.
