Friends, it was with much fear and trepidation that I strolled on over to SuperBru to have a squizz at this week’s movements. Not for the first time, I was forced to utter the immortal words, “Ouch! What was I thinking!”. Let’s have a look at the standings in our very own Sharksworld pool in the score prediction game over at www.superbru.com.

Game 47: Highlanders v Lions

A pretty poor performance all round by the Joburg boys. They hardly tackled at all in the first half, so it ultimately wasn’t surprising that they went down, although they did stage a remarkable comeback in the second half. 29020 was the score here, so Highlanders by 9. Plenty Margin Points, but the bonus was split between Western Sauce and Dive Pass, who were each a point away from the correct margin.

Game 48: Brumbies v Chiefs

Wow – talk about a good old-fashioned thrashing. With Stephen Donald in sublime form, the Chiefs came out and stuffed the home side, winning 42-28 and scoring 6 tries in the process. 14 was the margin and few of us got the correct winner here; this was a tough one to call. Congrats to Wehan, though, who took all the points on offer with his pick of Chiefs by 12.

Game 49: Force v Bulls

Poor bully boys… The Force really didn’t play at all well on Friday, yet still managed to come away with the spoils, after the Bulls had spurned numerous good scoring opportunities. 15-14 was the score, so Force by 1. Salmo, Sharkie and bryce_in_oz all had the Force by three, so they share the bonus.

Game 50: Hurricanes v Sharks

Let’s not even talk about this game, ok? Gah! 13-all draw, nobody picked it, some got a margin point. The end.

Game 51: Waratahs v Blues

Not too many of us backed the Tahs at all here, yet they put in a good showing to stuff the Blues, who are only ever really good for the first 3 games of the season. 37-16 was the score, a 21-point hammering. The closest we could get to that was shark-tank who had the Tahs by 12. That got him the bonus, but no margin point.

Game 52: Cheetahs v Reds

Well done Cheetahs. A solid, 29-14, bonus point victory. Now if only I had backed them to win this week! Cheetahs by 15 netted fattmann a handy 2.5 points all to hisself.

Grand Slam Points, you say? You’re dreaming! Another awful week out there.

The top 4 is unchanged this week… basically due to the fact that nobody really had a good one. Best player of the round was shark-tank, with a pretty decent haul of 6 points.

Here is the complete top 10:

1 Ghost10 61.58
2 Kandas 55.44
3 Villie 53.25
4 SinBinners 53.11
5 Fatality 51.33
6 namboer 51.24
7 the_finman 50.58
8 DivePass 50.40
9 PostmanPat 50.25
10 SauronShark 49.61

Ghost10 is still the only Sharksworld contributor still in the top 10. Here’s where the rest of us are:

17 robdylan 45.50 Down two. Hating life
25 Western Sauce 41.33 Up 4 spots and overtaking his colleagues… a late surge?
26 Sandshark 41.08 Down three, now below Sauce
27 PissAnt 40.83 On his way up – has KSA in his sights
34 PJLD 37.88 Holding firm this round.

  • Here’s my prediction for this week… PJLD to climb into the top 10 in the following 5 rounds, coz he’s made up a helluva lot of ground over the past few weeks

    I’ll start to feel a bit safer once I’ve got that lead up to ten, which I should’ve done this last weekend.

  • I think I was left alone a lot when I was a baby…did that result in me picking the Lions to beat the Highlanders? Or was that my soccer crazy personality?

  • well, I am pissed off with the Cheetahs, mostly. After weeks of backing them, I finally gave up and THEN they go and win.
