Who will be left standing?

140 came, 98 of them are dead, and some are on their knees, 38 in fact. Only 11 are still left standing upright.

With only four rounds of the Super 14 league phase left to go we are getting to the business end and the semi-finalists are starting to sort themselves out. On JustRugby.net’s WEBER Last man Standing competition we may have whittled down the numbers considerably but we still have 11 green guys standing around nervously.

A few of them have very cleverly delayed picking the S14 underachievers as long as possible. We have a saying in Afrikaans. “Slim vang sy Baas” and that just may be closer to the truth than we all think. As I’ve already said, we are at the business end of the competition now and you are going to have to start picking those under achievers soon, if you have not already done so for this round. (I have :sad: ) Let’s have a look at how things are set up to play out.

The Little green men and their remaining options are:
Blue Blood – Bulls, Lions, Cheethas, Blues
Blue Kevan – Lions, Cheetahs, Highlanders, Force
Diabolical – Bulls, Lions, Cheetahs, Force
Hertford Highlanders – Bulls, Lions, Cheetahs, Force
Hydras – Bulls, Lions, Hurricanes, Force
Kwaggies – Lions, Stormers, Cheetahs, Force
Sandkruipers – Lions, Cheetahs, Hurricanes, Force
Sauon’s Warriors – Lions, Cheetahs, Blues, Force
The dream team – Sharks, Lions, Cheetahs, Force
The Punters – Sharks, Lions, Cheetahs, Chiefs
WPW’s Poofters – Lions, Cheetahs, Hurricanes, Force

As we can see Lions, Cheetahs, Force is a recurring theme throughout this list above. Some are lucky and have maybe two decent teams left but mostly they only have one. For my money Hydras and Blue Blood will be fighting it out at the death with the Cheetahs v Lions game in Round 14 being the decider.

Well played everyone. And thanks to Weber for the great prize that has been provided.

  • I think HH and WPW are not worried about winning the competition, they just want to beat each other. :wink:

  • @dawnwallenkamp (Comment 23) : i would think so but Blues beating The Sharks is a possibility but not a given. I don’t think that Western Force will do that against Crusaders without Giteau (even with him that couldn’t do that) and Cheetahs – eish.

  • Where do I lodge a complaint regarding this competition? I only lost out because the ref was biased, he missed two knock-ons that would have altered the course of the game, there should have been at least three penalty tries, four yellow cards for the opposition, and also I was very tired because I just got back from a long trip overseas :lol: :lol: :lol:

  • @wpw (Comment 34) : That would be interesting, because he would then be allocated Blues this week, Bulls next week, both against the sharks. If he were to forget for the rest of the tournament, his next auto pick would be cheetahs against the force, and finally Lions against cheetahs, a reasonable chance of that getting a few right there!

    Follow me RF….i could open you eyes to a whole new way of observing the beautiful game.

    Don’t let WPW mislead you too much…..i still can’t establish how many sides he supports ;-)

    Let the battle commence :lol:
