Thanks in no small part to the Lions’ inability to win a single game this year, no player in our Weber Last Man Standing competition on JustRugby.net was able to make it through the round-robin phase with their lifeline intact.
No fewer than 9 teams have managed to get through all fourteen rounds without dying, courtesy of the lifeline available to all players and as a result, we now find ourselves in a tie-break situation. Before explaining how that is going to work, though, we need to extend hearty congratulations to everyone who made it this far. Here are your 9 finalists:
The dream team
According to the rules published on JustRugby.net, should the pool stages of the competition be completed and more than one player is still standing then a tie break will be used to decide the winner. Any player having used a lifeline will be eliminated. If there is still more than one player left standing then participation in Sharksworld discussions over the course of the 2010 Super 14 will be the final tiebreaker. We will exclude anyone from a chance of winning the prize if it is felt that the player has not conducted him/herself within the spirit of the game, such as posting comments containing nonsense to increase Sharksworld participation.
In order to make things simple, we’ve decided to award the Last Man Standing prize(s) to whichever of the finalists has posted the highest number of (meaningful) comments on Sharksworld during the course of the 2010 Super 14. Any comment posted between midnight on 11 Feb 2010 and midnight on 29 May 2010 will count towards the total and we will announce the final result during the week immediately following the Super 14 Final.
Good luck to all the finalists and as always, our decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into. Unless you’re sending us pictures of the Sharks cheerleaders, that is…Tweet
