The JustRugby.net 2011 Super Rugby competitions are open for entries.
Those of you who have played in our JustRugby.net competitions before will be familiar with the formats but we will give you a quick recap highlighting any changes that have been made.
We have stuck with the tried and tested format here with no changes having been made.
The objective is pretty simple select a team of 30 players to score you as many Fantasy League points as you can during the Super Rugby season. You will have to select a Captain and Starting XV from your squad of 30 each week. The Captain will earn double points for that match and the starting XV will earn 1,5 times more points than the non-starting XV players.
During the season you will only be given 10 trades to replace any players you see fit so choose wisely early on. At the end of the season the winner will be the player with the highest score.
Our scoring system is simple and does not use any disputable statistics or achievements such as meters gained or balls carried etc. Our scores are calculated from solid undisputable achievements such as being in the match 22, actually making it onto the field, scoring points, getting carded etc.
I have it on very good authority that some guys were already working on team selections early in January. The competition is going to be tough with our resident Kiwi giving us all a run for our money.
Last Man Standing.
Again the objective is very simple. Select one winning team each week to stay alive and in the competition. If you choose a non-winning team you die. Once you have chosen a team once you will not be able to choose them again. The Last Man Standing is the winner.
Due to the mismatch of Super Rugby rounds (18) and the number of teams (15) we have decided to award (3) selectable byes to each player. All you have to do is select a bye when you wish and you will stay alive for that round.
The training wheels have come off this season and if you don’t keep your wits about you, you will be eliminated chop-chop. There are no longer any lifelines or default picks. If you forget to make a pick or pick a non-winning team you die.
NOTE THAT THE ROUNDS WILL CLOSE AT 6AM SOUTH AFRICAN TIME ON THE FRIDAY MORNING BEFORE EACH ROUND. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED AND WILL BE WARNED A FEW MORE TIMES.
In an effort to make the tie break at the end of the competition less biased towards Sharksworld posters we have implemented a new tie break system. A time stamp will be assigned to each pick made, recording the elapsed time from the round being opened to the selection being made. This elapsed time will be totalized each week and at the end of the tournament the smallest elapsed time will be used as the tie break to determine the winner. The opening of the round will NOT be at a fixed time and could be anytime between the completion of the last match and Monday morning. All we can guarantee is that it WILL be open by Monday morning 8am SA time.Tweet
