Sharksworld Fantasy League – Round 2 Update

Well guys, let’s have a look at how everyone is doing in the Sharksworld Currie Cup Fantasy league.

Last week’s joint leader, sexkitten, has now opened up a handy 9-point lead over her hubbie, flop. As we’re still getting used to the scoring system and developing a feel for what constitutes a good round, it’s quite hard to say whether a 9-point lead actually means much at this stage of the comp. sexkitten has to be feeling pretty good about the Test tickets, though.

Looking further down the log, bstott is still in 3rd, about 9 points behind flop. Contributor hellbent has stormed into fourth, with Silver Fox just a couple of points behind. sexkitten was again MVP for the round, netting the 5 points all to herself this week. Check out the full log here.

Remember that the competition is still open to new entrants and will be up to round 5. Anyone entering a team before the close of round 3 (which will be midday on Friday) will be allocated a default score of 60 points for Rounds 1 and 2. This will slot you in below the last-placed contestant, but will still allow you to be competitive over the course of the season. For details on how the competition works and how to enter, look here.

Let’s have a look at some interesting stats from the second round. Obviously the one most will be interested in is the players who racked up the best scores.This week, it was Sharks flop Jacques Schutte, now playing fullback for the Valke that came up trumps, scoring 9 points. Schutte netted the 3-point bonus for getting 7 or more kicks over and was on the winning side for a change.  Flyhavles Chris Rossouw (6 points) and Willem de Waal (5 points) are next up, with Sharks replacement Monty Dumond just half a point further back in 4th spot. Again, the winning captains, Scholtz, Muller, Skeate and Hanno Coetzee delivered good value to their managers with 4-point returns.

Having a look at the players who have performed best over the two rounds so far, it’s really not surprising to see Willem de Waal’s name topping the list. With 12.5 points from two games (and average return of 6.5 points per game) he really is good value, making it even stranger that some people don’t have him in their squad. Boland fullback is just a whisker further back on 12.25, thanks in no small part to his monster haul in Round 1. Expect him to slide down the table as Boland pick up further defeats. Valke duo True Blue Smit (10.5) and Jacques Schutte (10) are next, showing that perhaps we have all missed a trick by not picking up the guys doing the kicking for the smaller teams. Chris Rossouw is in 5th spot with 9 points, tied with Rory Kockott. The rest of the top ten includes John Daniels and John Mametsa (8.25 each) and Johann Muller and Hendro Scholtz (each on 8 points). I’ll look into building a report that we can use to get an accurate list of MVPs as the game progresses

That’s it for this week. We’ll have another update on completion of Round 3.

  • Thanks again for the competition Rob, always makes it more interesting. If the Lions can just begin to win some games I might do a bit better!

    How does the ‘try bonus’ system work???

  • @wpw (Comment 4) : 19th overall, though ;)

    @wpw (Comment 5) : it’s an uncapped bonus that gives you 1 point for every 4 tries your team scores in a round. So if the players in your squad (between) them score 4-7 tries, you’ll get 1 try bonus point. 8-11 tries gives you 2, etc

    And it is not what I wanted…merely mentioned a few suggestions that MIGHT make it a bit more interesting…you know as you cannot do much about your team…so something has to keep you interested…

  • Or what you maybe could do is…depending on your score (like a ranking bonus) you could trade players after round 1…yes this does benefit the higher ranked players…but they should earn something for their results…
    Not too hectic…depending on your score braket you can trade 1 – 5 players at the turn of the rounds….

    What you think?

  • Further…allow for more flexibility in the backline with the trades…as backline players inter-change so much these days…Boshoff between center and wing…Rose playing fullback and fly-half…Basson fullback and scrumhalf…
    No real thoughts on how…maybe a FL CC Round 2 suggestion posts (obviously listing a few)and work through them and then as the owners of the FL you need to make the final calls….

  • So no trades after first round?
    You do know that the people who are down the list in scoring will lose interest as they cannot do anything….especially if the reason was injured players…
    Hence my previous suggestion of an injury list with anticipated time out!??!

    This is off-course a trial version and the system will improve with experience. But as far as I’m concerned the system is working well for now so we don’t have to make any sudden changes. Modifications can me made after this comp…
