The time has come to announce the winner of our SuperBru Tipping Competition.

It won’t come as much of a surprise to most, but our run-away front-runner Ghost10 has won the title outright, now that the folks over at SuperBru have done all their final touch-ups and audited the whole bang-shoot. With a massive 105.75 points, Ghostie was just a shade under 10 clear points away from the guy in second place.

With an impressive percentage of 76.6% correct picks, Ghost10 is a truly worthy winner and will be the man to beat in future competitions. Word has it that he may well have taken the honours in other competitions as well.

As the winner of our competition, Ghost nets a pair of prime tickets for the upcoming Tri-Nations test against the Wallabies at ABSA Stadium.

Well done to SinBinners and Kandas, for finishing in second and third place respectively.

  • What a surprise… I didn’t see this one coming…

    Ok…congratulations to The Ghost…just a bit disappointed I slid all the way out of the Top 20 cos at some point I was moving towards the Top 10.

    Will have to do better in the CC. Well the Sharks will have to win the CC for me to do that because I will still pick them to win every game…and if they get knocked out I won’t bother making picks.

    blackshark - I'm back!
  • @blackshark (Comment 6) :

    I know what you mean – I was leading in the S14 competition at our office until the Sharks were knocked out. Although – I had them coming second with Crusaders winning.
