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|
|4||Sandshark||KSA Shark ©||5167.25|

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:
|Pierre Spies||BUL||Other Forward||199|
|Akona Ndungane||BUL||Outside Back||174|
|Bryan Habana||BUL||Outside Back||173|
|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.Tweet
