The folks over at SuperBru have built something really nice!

Head on over to this page and you’ll find an awesome knockout calculator that you can use to see what the final log will look like given any permutation you care to think of for this weekend’s results.

I put in the following results:

Blues by 15
Force by 2
Crusaders by 7
Reds by 10
Stormers by 5
Cheetahs by 1
Sharks by 10 (with bonus)

And came up with the following ideal scenario:

1. Crusaders 56
2. Sharks 42
3. Stormers 41
4. Blues 40

Go have a bash and see what your predictions turn out.

  • This is brilliant. SOoooooo many permutations. That losing BP we thru away against Crusaders could come back to bite us in the @ss. That said, if we pick up the 5 points on Sat and a few results go our way, a home semi is still possible! C’mon Blues, Reds and Lions!! :lol: :lol:

  • Now that is mighty cool. Just from fiddling, I guess we need to cross fingers on teh Blues beating the Canes by more than 7 – that way we have both the Sharks & Stroppies in the semis.

    Will all be a lot clearer after tomorrow mornings crunch game :mrgreen:

    Quite right, cool tool this thingy.

    Everyone can play and your team always ends up in the semi’s!

  • That is a pretty cool tool… weird thing is that I predicted the following final four midway thru the competition, and that’s exactly what the system kicked out when I put my predicted results in, in the same order!

    Saders
    Canes
    Stormers
    Sharks

    Would be great if this happened, coz I reckon the Stormers can take the Canes over there in NZ.

That week it was at the Keg and Filly but I didn’t go because I was at work. He must have read the blog and saw us talking about it and was going to go but didn’t make it.
