One more round to go until we award the tickets. Let’s see how we stand after Round 6.
It’s been a bit of a tale of woe for Walter. After a fantastic round last week that pulled him right up into second position, he had a terrible week. Maybe something to do with the Lions losing? Sexkitten remains on her own at the top now, with a 9.75 point lead over the Transvaal man. Flop and bstott are breathing down Walter’s neck in 3rd and 4th respsectively, while fattmann and hellbent are a way further back. It’s going to take a huge week from any of the walter, flop or bstott to take in first place and wrest the prize from our runaway leader.
Round 6 was a strange one, with a completely new set of MVPs. Dunlop and SonetShark shared the MVP bonus point this week, with geraas, hellbent and Grant Twilley coming in 3rd through 6th respectively. Due to the strange nature of the draw this year, anyone who had a lot of Bulls (or Griquas) players was bound to do badly this round. The difference will be made up in a few weeks’ time when the Griquas-Bulls match actually takes place.
Good performances from Sharksworld contributors were few and far between this week, outside of hellbent’s fourth place. Big Fish came in 6th, with myself in 13th and PJLD in 17th spot. HB is in 6th spot overall, and is the only one really flying the flag for us. PJLD, Big Fish and Quinny are all in the top 20.
Looking at the players, it was Peter Grant who emerged as this round’s MVP – his 8.5 points head and shoulders above Gcobani Bobo’s haul of 5. Johann Muller, Barend Pieterse, Ruan Pienaar were all tied a point further back. Earl Rose is still the overall MVP, with only Justin Peach back in 5th place having made any real ground to catch up this week.
In a change to the competition rules, we’re going to be offering a “mid season trade”. Basically, this is an opportunity to make 5 changes to your squad. We’ll put up a notice a little later in the week to explain how that will work, so keep your eyes peeled.Tweet
