Oleksandr Ivashkin 3-1 @ $3.90

Table Tennis has been good to us here at Neds Available World of Sports and we’re excited to get around our favourite tournament – the Setka Cup and the match between Intellectual Ivan Kozachuk and Original Oleksander Ivashkin.

Ivan Kozachuk goes into this game with a poor run of form, having only won two of his last eight matches and is currently on a four-game losing streak. 

He has had only the one matchup against Oleksander Ivashkin going down 3-2 in a five-set epic. 

His opponent, Oleksander Ivashkin has been in fine form, having won six out of his last eight Setka Cup hit outs and will take plenty of confidence going into this afternoons clash (3 pm AEST) 

Many expect this game to be a repeat of the five-set epic we witnessed only a few days ago between the two.

I think Ivashkin will be too strong in this contest and backing him to get the job done 3-1. 

Parramatta Eels 1 - 12 @ $2.85

Here at Neds Available World Sports, we’ve searched the globe far and wide to bring you tips from things like Russian Volleyball, random Ukrainian Table Tennis tournaments like the Setka Cup, the weather – especially in Perth, MasterChef, Smooth FM countdowns, the Belarusian Premier League – the list goes on but guess what?


I’m slightly emotional and I’ve even ordered my Peter V’Landys poster from the Western Weekender to be mounted and framed put front and centre of my house for our hero who gave us our footy (QLD/NSW readers) back – praise be. 

The season resumes tonight with the Broncos playing host to Parramatta in front of nobody at Suncorp Stadium.

Given the last time the Broncos played Parramatta, they’ll probably prefer this current climate than the absolute spanking they got last September.

The Eels go into this game favourite, however, I expect it to be closer than what we witnessed last time. Who knows what to expect given the current climate, the element of the unknown is very exciting.

For what it’s worth I’m backing Parramatta to get it done – but it will be close.
