Sharksworld Fantasy League – Round 4 Update

It’s an unchanged top 3 on the Fantasy League leaderboard, but the gaps between those places are getting narrower all the time.

Sexkitten is still in first place, but was way down in 6th spot for round 4, meaning 5 other contestants made up valuable ground. Flop and bstott are the others in the top three, with walter holding steady in fourth. Round MVP Fattmann has leap-frogged hellbent and is now in 5th spot. View the full log after four rounds here.

Fattmann really had a superb round, netting the 5 point MVP bonus and ending up with 70.75 for the round. That score included a try bonus point for four tries. In second place for the week was new entrant mbayshark with 65.25, so if we take out the MVP bonus, we’ll see that Fattmann only won this round by the slenderest of margins – half a point. Walter reaped the rewards of a solid Lions performance to come in third, while flop and bstott came in fourth and fifth respectively.

It’s becoming quite usual in these competitions for the Sharksworld contributors to end nowhere – I swear, we do it on purpose to give you guys a chance! The best we could manage this week was hellbent in 12th, who is keeping our name high in the top 10 overall. Big Fish came in 14th this time around, but the rest of us all have a fair amount of ground to make up. Let me also mention that Hmmm is in the top ten, because if I don’t, he’s sure to!

Remember that you can still enter a team up until Round 6 begins. Details on how to do so are here.

Earl Rose had another fantastic week, brining in 9.75 points. He has now overtaken Willem de Waal as the overall Most Valuable Player, which is hardly surprising given Billy’s tame capitulation in Kimberley (along with the rest of his WP maaitjies). Morne Steyn was the only other player to score big points this weekend, with the usual suspects (winning captains and Jacques Botes) bringing in their 4-point hauls. Jaco Pretorius, of course, is another who scored two tries to nett a decent return.

On the overall MVP list, Rose has opened up a huge 6.5 lead over de Waal. Steyn is jealously eyeing moustache-boy’s second spot as well, while Chris Rossouw is on the way up as well. Johann Muller, perhaps somewhat surprisingly, is in 6th spot, showing the value of a captain whose side keeps winning.

  • Deysel may start next week, probably off the bench. Do you know whether Barritt is clear for this week and Sykes?
