SuperBru Tipping Competition: Round 11 Results


Written by Rob Otto (robdylan)

Another week and those who picked with their heads, rather than their hearts had a pretty successful time of it? 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 65: Crusaders v Blues

A topsy-turvy game. Very few of us gambled on the Blues winning here, but it was not to be, as the mighty Crusaders edged the up-and-down Aucklanders, prevailing by 4 points, 26-22. Front-runners Kandas, Sinbinners and Ghost10 all predicted a win by 5 for the men in red, so they shared the bonus point on offer.

Game 66: Brumbies v Lions

Oh, the poor bedraggled Lions. They fought so hard in this game and one would have thought at the very least they should have escaped with a draw. It was not to be, though and the Brumbies (again with a little help from a sympathetic ref) managed to score at the death to prevail by 7 points, 28-21. King Shark and Ice Babe both had this one spot on.

Game 67: Chiefs v Reds

The Chiefs didn’t have it all their own way in the second half, but still did enough to win their final home game, by 12 points. 32-20 was the final score and bryce_in_oz and King Shark (again) were spot on and shared the bonus point.

Game 68: Waratahs v Sharks

Ugh. The Tahs won, 25-10. That’s what you get for only playing for half the game, Sharks. Congrats to PaarlGimmie for predicting the Tahs by 10. I’m sure the bonus point he got makes him feel empty inside!

Game 69: Cheetahs v Hurricanes

Wow… talk about being thrashed YET AGAIN. 6 tries to 1 and 38-10 tells a pretty bleak story for the men from Bloem. That’s right, it was Hurricanes by 28 and nobody was close enough to get a margin point. Fatality had the Hurricanes by 19, which was close enough to secure the bonus point here.

Game 70: Stormers v Highlanders

The Stormers duly saw of the challenge here, but not as emphatically as they would have liked to. No bonus point for the winners, but the result at least went their way. 26-16 and the Stormers by 10 was in line with what most of us thought. The bonus was split five ways here, so well done to all of those who bagged 0.2 points!

PaarlGimmie, Ghost10 and PissAnt all scored a valuable extra 2 points for getting all 6 results right this week. Those three are also our MVP’s for this round, with PaarlGimmie turning in a stellar round that netted him 10.5 points. Ghostie got 9.8 and PissAnt 9. Well done, all.

Our top five is exactly the same as last week, so the frontrunners are starting to show some good form moving towards the final rounds. Well done to PaarlGimmie for moving up into 6th place from outside the top ten last week.

Here is the complete top 10:

1 Ghost10 81.42
2 SinBinners 69.94
3 Kandas 67.28
4 Dive Pass 66.40
5 Fatality 65.83
6 PaarlGimmie 65.44
7 Villie 64.45
8 SauronShark 64.36
9 namboer 64.24
10 KSA Kette 63.07

Ghost10 is still the only Sharksworld contributor still in the top 10, although one of us does have the dubious honour of seeing his wife in tenth spot! Here’s where the rest of us are:

16 PissAnt 60.33 Another huge round -now he’s even passed me!
18 robdylan 59.50 Moved down one. Shouldn’t have gambled on the Blues
25 Western Sauce 56.53 Up one… doing a yoyo trick
31 Sandshark 52.08 One place up from last week
32 PJLD 50.88 Finally starts to move up again

  • Ja I do that often. Last year I had that habit when tipping against them they won, nowadays its just stupid to pick against them. :cool:

    I really follow a certain strategy with the tipping at this stage. The last two rounds it seems to work for me. Ask VinnieCS he know all about my ways of doing this and always thought I’ll make a lot of money if I would have been a gambler.

    We played our promotion\relegation match this past weekend. Proud to say we won 28-24. Yours truly was the victikm of a clueless ref and received a yellow card. But in the end we won.

    Cheers

    Didn’t get it for a PK – “not rolling away in the red zone” – kind of difficult with a guy standing on you…

  • Methos, elbow is a lot better. Still a little sore sometimes, but the joint is now stronger than it was before, so it should be fine. I’ll just make sure I bind on the left hand side of the scrum.

    I dont remember Intensive air. Sun air is one I remember that went bust.
