Today we feature ALL EIGHT Round 2 matches. Eight because this is the only way to fit the whole competition in before my covert mission behind enemy lines. Have fun voting. Remember to add a comment to this post to explain why your choice should win. Such comments have already decided several matches. All commenters will be entered into the AMAZE PRIZE DRAW (see below).
Round 2 Games:
Lemon Puffs v Tim Tams
Puffs stuffed Perkins last time and are looking good. Australian interlopers Tim Tams have chocolate going for them though, and that thing where you bite the corners off and suck the tea through. Wombat Predicts: the Antipodeans will march on.
Fig Rolls v Caramel Wafers
This one is hard to call. Fig Rolls easily dismissed Speculoos last time, while Wafers squeaked through in extra time against the fancied Jammie Dodgers. Wombat Predicts: extra time, decided by the quality of comments.
Choc Chip Cookies v Snickerdoodles
Happy Faces crumbled under the Cookie assault in the last round, while Snickerdoodles, those delicious cinnamon-enhanced sugar biscuits, surprisingly disposed of childhood favourites Rusks. Wombat Predicts: an easy win for Cookies.
Malted Milk v Viennese Whirl
On paper this looks like an easy win for Malted Milk, who trounced minnows Lotus in the last round, but Whirls should not be written off after their amazing fightback to defeat tournament favourites Rich Tea in Round 1. Wombat Predicts: Malted Milk to march on.
Shortbread v Digestives
Shortbread disposed of the fanciful Leibniz crew yesterday, and might prove stiff opposition for Digestives, who have yet to throw off their ‘Boring’ tag. Wombat Predicts: Digestive’s dunking prowess will prove decisive.
Hobnobs v Ginger Nuts
Predictably Danish Butter Biscuits proved easy pickings for the rough tough Hobnobs, while in the match of the round Bourbons proved just too soft against a hard Ginger Nuts team. Wombat Predicts: Ginger Nuts to just edge this clash of the titans.
PRIZE DRAW: everyone who leaves a comment will be entered into a Prize Draw after the tournament to win three packets of the World Champion biscuit along with a range* of teas in which to dunk them. *might not be a terribly huge range; it depends what I’ve got in the top cupboard.
