A scary 48% casualty rate in round 2 then!

....and still potentially could be as high as 61% in Round 3 (or as low as 15%)

Good swap by GregsEggs. Poor non-swapping by thebillfella.

Both GE and BN are now bookies favourites for their semis but that hasn't meant much in earlier rounds.

They might have beaten Villa and Fulham, but they won't beat Hull.
