We’re heading for crunch time and the only question that remains is this: can anyone hope to catch Ghost10? 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 59: Chiefs v Crusaders
Well, the Chiefs did it and toppled the mighty Crusaders. 18-5 was the score, so a pretty impressive win by 13 points. Not many had the cojones to back the Hamilton Hillbillies, but those who did profited handsomely. Well done PaarlGimmie for getting the bonus with a prediction of Chiefs by 9.
Game 60: Reds v Force
29-12 to the home side, another that went against the form book this week. Only three people in the entire pool picked the Reds to win this one and Whindy was close enough with his prediction of Reds by 12 to grab all 2.5 points.
Game 61: Waratahs v Lions
Most of us picked the Tahs by plenty, so it was looking a bit dodgy when neither side had yet scored by half time. The crims did the deed in the second half, though, winning 26-3. The even more amazing news here is that I finally broke my duck and picked up the bonus myself. That’s right, Tahs by 23 is what I picked. Thanks for coming, all!
Game 62: Bryce Lawrence v Sharks
Well, the Sharks did well to beat the Brumbies in the first half. The ref did superbly to beat the Sharks in the second half, so ultimately it was Bryce 27, Sharks 21, meaning Bryce won by 6. Congrats to PissAnt and Hmmm for getting the result right, although celebrating this fact would be nothing short of schadenfreude. Pah!
Game 63: Bulls v Highlanders
Well, once the Bulls get going, they really do a good job of it. I didn’t give them a hope in this game, but the youth policy seemed to pay off and they ran out 47-17 winners, a margin of 30. Nobody was really close to that, so the bonus point went to fattmann, who had the Bulls to win by 18.
Game 64: Stormers v Hurricanes
Well done Stormers. a 20-12 victory just about did the trick, knocking the Canes back nicely into the chasing pack. Dive Pass and Hmmm both got this one spot on, so they share the bonus point.
Again no GSP’s this week, although PaarlGimmie and PissAnt both picked 5 correctly out of 6. Those two were also this week’s MVP’s, with scores of 7.5 and 6.5 points respectively. Mazel tov to the WP duo.
Ghost10 and SinBinners are both safe out in front, but the Ghost had a pretty bad round and his lead at the top is now only 8 points or so! Kandas stormed back into 3rd with a strong showing.
Here is the complete top 10:
Ghost10 is still the only Sharksworld contributor still in the top 10. Here’s where the rest of us are:
