The much anticipated Windhoek Lager Team of the Currie Cup competition is afoot and I will be explaining how all this will work. Remember, the winner will pick up 2 cases of the wonderfully tasty Windhoek Lager. Do I have your attention now?
Right, so we have appointed a panel to select their team of the year. This will be done by each of the panel members submitting their own team, and then every player nominated shall be discussed. Should a player be nominated in four or five of the submitted teams, that player will automatically secure his spot.
The panel will be made up of Maria Delport (Letgo – Sharks), Andre Bosch (KSA Shark – Sharks), Eben Lingenfelder (bloubulblog – Bulls), Wes Weber (wpw – Western Province) and Morne Nortier (morne – Western Province). We have specifically decided to go with a panel of five as there can be no 50/50 vote, and we have managed to balance the panel, with 2 Sharks, 2 Province and a single Bull to keep it fair.
Now comes the part where you get to do the selecting. A web based selection will be done, where you will select your team from all the available players per position. If a player played in different positions, he will be available in each of the positions, provided that he played at least one game in the position. A team of 15 players will be selected, and not 22 as initially discussed.
From there it is rather simple, if you get the team spot on to the team selected by the panel, you will win. Should there be more than one winner, the outright winner will be selected by their respective Sharksworld points, so make sure you rack up the comments in the next few days if you want to be in with a chance.
UPDATE: The link to enter your team is here. Please note that you need to be a registered Sharksworld user to enter and that your team selection is final. Obviously, you can only select one team as well. The beer is only for SA-based entrants, but if someone from outside the country wins we’ll get you an equivalent prize (and drink the beer ourselves). As with all our competitions, the judges’ decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into (unless you’re sending us funny emails/pictures of Sharks flasher girls). I guess we also can’t give this prize to anyone under the age of 18. I mean, really!
