Another successful competition at JustRugby has come to an end and we’re pleased to announce that aleric’s OP Sharks have won the inaugural JustRugby Super 14 Fantasy League!

It was a gruelling competition, with a squad of 30 to manage and only ten trades to use over the course of 16 rounds. The OP Sharks took the lead right from round 1 and racked up three impressive MVP bonuses along the way, allowing them to stay ahead of the chasing pack – particularly in the final rounds where it was difficult to score points.

The prize of a pair of tickets to see the Sharks in action against the touring British Lions next week will be winging their way to aleric – congratulations on a superb performance!

Here’s what the top 10 looked like after 16 rounds of play. I’m pleased to announce that two of the Sharksworld administrators made it into the top 10, as well as a fair few of our regular posters.

1 The OP Sharks aleric 5640
2 Mbaysharks mbayshark 5267.75
3 Mollas molly 5233.5
4 Sandshark KSA Shark © 5167.25
5 Pokkel’s Palookas Pokkel 5151
6 Kabous se yster manne Kabous 5145.5
7 Sodden Spears JustPlainSHARK 5113.5
8 Dylanators robdylan 4924
9 Dunlop 15 Dunlop 4857
10 Frisbee Force Frisbee 4847.5

In terms of the Most Valuable Players over the course of the competition, it’s somewhat surprising to see that the Chiefs’ Steven Donald edges out Morne Steyn. I guess you can blame that on Steyn’s yellow card in one of the later rounds, coupled with the fact that he missed a fair few kicks at goal (including missed drops). Pierre Spies comes in in third place. Here is the complete top 10:

Stephen Donald CHF Halfback 222
Morné Steyn BUL Halfback 212
Pierre Spies BUL Other Forward 199
Stirling Mortlock BRM Centre 187
Matt Giteau FOR Halfback 179
Ma’a Nonu HUR Centre 178
Akona Ndungane BUL Outside Back 174
Bryan Habana BUL Outside Back 173
Isaia Toeava BLU Centre 164
Fourie du Preez BUL Halfback 161

Be sure to check out JustRugby in the near future as we’ll run both Fantasy League and Last Man Standing competitions for the 2009 Currie Cup. Congratulations again to the winners.
