Another exciting season of Super 14 rugby has come to a predictable end, with the Bulls yet again walking off with the trophy. Perhaps more importantly, though, is that we are (finally) in a position to announce our winners in the JustRugby.net Super 14 Fantasy League and Last Man Standing competitions!
Looking at our Fantasy League competition, kindly sponsored by Marshall’s World of Sport, it has been neck-and-neck between the two front-runners right up until the final round. We are please to announce that sexkitten, who so narrowly lost out on a win in our inaugural Currie Cup Fantasy League back in 2008, has managed to squeak first place with an impressive points total of 6378. Sexkitten takes home a betting voucher to the value of R4000. Let’s hope she doesn’t blow it all on backing the Sharks to win the Currie Cup. Just a few points behind in second place was our old friend Ellie, who won the Currie Cup Fantasy League in 2009. The good new for her, though, is that our other prize, a R2000 betting voucher, goes home with her, since she posted the highest individual round score (668.75) back in round 5.
If there’s one thing we’re learning here, it’s that the girls kick ass at Fantasy League. There’s also a bit of a stranglehold developing here, with the same few players proving dominant competition after competition. Time for some new blood to rise to the challenge in the Currie Cup Fantasy League in 2010?
Moving over the the Weber Last Man Standing competition, as you know, we’ve been in tie-break territory since the knock-out rounds started. No fewere than 9 players managed to get through the round robin without losing their life, but there were two clear stand-out performers when we took Sharksworld participation over the course of the Super 14 into account. Our over-all winner is somewhat of a new face, in Hertford Highlander, who has certainly made up for lost time. Hertford has posted a staggering 1493 comments since the Super 14 started and we are very pleased to award him the first-place prize of a pair of his-and-hers Super 14 jerseys. No prizes for guessing which ones he’ll choose! Will Mrs Highlander be seen dead in a Highlanders jersey, though? That is the question!
As per the rules announced at the start of the competition, the prize of a Weber braai goes to our highest-placed South African entrant and I’m pleased to announce that one of our oldest and most loyal posters, wpw has emerged as the winner of this prize. Congrats, Wes – and you’re going to have to make the circle a lot bigger when inviting all of us over to your place for a braai. Wes posted 1389 comments over the course of the Super 14.
Congratulations to all the winners and we’ll be in touch shortly to confirm delivery of your prizes. Be sure to play in the next instalments of the JustRugby.net competitions in the 2010 Currie Cup.Tweet
