Fantasy League update

Round 1 of the JustRugby.net Fantasy League saw plenty of thrills and spills, with our favourite Lions fan Zibbie coming out on top and claiming the early lead.

A number of players stood out in Round 1, with Sharks halfback Fred Michalak proving an astute purchase for those managers who included him in their squads. Along with Burton Francis, the cheeky Frenchman scored a try to go with a number of successful goal kicks to elevate both flyhalves to the top of the round 1 scoring charts. There was a somewhat surprising third spot for Cheetahs prop WP Nel (showing the value of prop tries, which count plenty), while perennial favourite Keegan Daniel, who can always be counted on for a try or two, came in fourth, with captaincy bonus to boot.

Managers would do well to have a look at the injury list after round 1 and make the appropriate decision based on the likelihood of those players returning to the competition. Remember that with only 10 trades in total, you simply cannot afford to trade out everyone who picks up an injury. There is, of course, little point in retaining a player who picks up a season-ending injury and any such players should be shipped out as soon as possible.

There’s simply no room for sentiment!

Here’s a breakdown of what we currently know regarding injuries at this stage of the competition. Do inform us if we’ve missed anyone out.

- Leopards flank Renaldo Botma suffered a serious ankle injury that requires surgery. He’s out for the season, poor chap!
- Griquas winger Rocco Jansen broke a bone in his hand. He’s expected to be out for at least a month.
- Province flyhalf Gary van Aswegen suffered an MCL injury and will be out for roughly 8 weeks.
- Bulls centre Jaco Pretorius has been confirmed out for around 6 weeks with a groin strain
- Cheetahs hooker Skipper Badenhorst has announced his retirement from the game following a back injury.

    Hey Rob

    You have a small problem on LMS. Go to ‘view picks’ and look at the ‘most picked’ at the bottom.

    Still some Superugby teams there.

  • @Ben (Comment 32) : The Bengal tiger, or Royal Bengal tiger (Panthera tigris tigris), is a tiger subspecies native to India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan, and has been classified as endangered by IUCN as the population is estimated at fewer than 2,500 individuals with a decreasing trend. None of the Tiger Conservation Landscapes within the Bengal’s tiger range are large enough to support an effective population size of 250.

    The Bengal tiger is the most numerous of the tiger subspecies — with populations estimated at 1,706 in India, 200 in Bangladesh, 155 in Nepal and 67–81 in Bhutan.

    The Bengal tiger is the national animal of Bangladesh. Panthera tigris is the national animal of India.

  • Aparently there is no breeders in SA for Serval cats. The closest one can get to one in SA is a Savannah cat. Which is a serval crossed with a normal cat.
