Our test tickets have a winner!
That’s right, folks. She’s led right from the start and is still in top spot after 7 rounds. Congratulations to sexkitten for winning a pair of prime tickets to see the mighty Bokke take on the Aussies in Durban on 23 August. sexkitten, we’ll be in touch shortly to discuss the logistics.
Second placed walter looked like running the kitten close at one stage, but two reasonably bad weeks in succession saw his challenge falter and, though still in second place, he’s a good 12 points behind at this stage. Flop, bstott and fattmann continue their merry-go-round in places 3 through 5, much as they have for most of the competition so far. Sharksworld contributor hellbent is flying our flag high in 6th spot.
Round 7 split the field in two, with those who had hat-trick hero Wikus van Heerden in their squads scoring big points. Mbayshark was our MVP this week and brought home a credible haul of 80.5 points (including the MVP bonus). Fattmann was next, followed by hellbent and sexkitten, with 63 each. Walter and Ollie each scored 61.
Looking at the players who scored well this week, Wikus van Heerden was head and shoulders above the rest, with 10 points. Scoring a hat trick and captaining a winning side is always going to bring in the big points, it seems. Morne Steyn was just a little further back on 8.5, with overall MVP Earl Rose continuing his antics, bringing in 4.5 points this week.
Ok, so here’s how the trades are going to work:
Just send me an email, telling me which players you would like to trade, with the following rules in mind.
1) You may make up to 5 trades.
2) You may only trade a player for another player who plays the same position.
3) Each trade you make will cost you 10 points.
That’s it. The trade window is open as of now, until Thursday 21 August. That is just before the start of round 10 (remember, only 1 match will be played in Round 9). That means you need to tell me in your email which should be the first round in which you want your trades to take effect. Your options are Round 8, Round 9 or Round 10.
This will be the only trade window in the entire competition, so use your trades wisely. Remember, there won’t be more before the semis and finals.
Using the trades is, of course, completely optional. If you choose to stay with the “zero maintenance” theme of this competition, you will definitely start off with an advantage, as you won’t be docked any points.Tweet
