Top tips get Mosley to the final

GAYNDAH resident Jo-Anne Mosley couldn't be more excited after winning the 2016 Central and North Burnett Times 2016 NRL Footy Tipping Competition and scoring herself two tickets to the grand final.

"I've always been a lover of football and when I got here to the Orange I got roped into the tipping competition which I am glad I did now," Mrs Mosley said.

"I finished on 136 points, only one point ahead of second place," she said.

"It actually came down to the second last game to see who would win the tipping."

Mrs Mosley said it was difficult to contain her excitement when she realised she had won.

"It was awesome to win," Mrs Mosley said.

"It all came from my own skill, it wasn't luck of the draw or anything, it was all from my tipping ability."

Once word got out that Mrs Mosely had won she became a very popular person among the patron of the pub.

"After I won half the people in town were packing their bags, everybody wanted me to take them," Mrs Mosley said. "I have family in Sydney so we will get to visit them too."

Mrs Mosely has decided she will take her oldest son to the game with her.

"When I told him he was stoked, he loves rugby league," Mrs Mosley said.

Mrs Mosley will be flying out on Saturday morning for a harbour cruise on Sunday before the big game.

Mrs Mosely said while she was taking her son to the game her daughter Jessica would get to enjoy the harbour cruise with her.

"I haven't been to a rugby league game in many years," Mrs Mosley said. "I think the last live football I saw was in Western Australia 15 years ago and that was for the AFL," she said.

"We are excited that we might get to see history being made by the Sharks, who I'm tipping to win."

As well as two NRL Grand Final tickets, accommodation and the harbour cruise Mrs Mosley will also have $500 spending money.

"This is going to be my first time at ANZ Stadium too, I am just really excited for it all," Mrs Mosley said.
