24 hours and counting…

With 24 hours to go before we are in Super Rugby season we have to look at what we want achieved in the next day before we are immersed in more rugby than our spouses think we can handle.

First and foremost is getting on over to SuperBru and getting in the biggest Sharksworld pool ever formed. The pool code is GAFFBRED and is open to anybody.

Secondly, the JustRugby.net fantasy league and Last Man Standing competitions are closing at 6am tomorrow morning, so any last minute changes have to be done during today, or you are certain to miss cut off. This will entail going through every single team announced over the last few days and making sure that your team is complete to gain maximum points. A good start in the Fantasy League is non-negotiable.

Now, for those of you that work on a Friday, like most of you should, will have to either invest a few bucks in a Drifta mcgafter or make sure that your internet cap is far from reached, as following the rugby with live updates and following here on Sharkworld can take its toll. Either that, or take some leave to watch it live from home.

All of this should get you through most of today, but I hear you ask: β€œWhat am I supposed to do tonight when I cannot sleep because I am so excited for the rugby?” Well, tonight is the night to make sure the important people/family/spouses/kids etc are given your full attention as this will be the last time it happens until July 10, when there is a short family break before we head into the Tri Nations 2 weeks later. Use tonight wisely, it could save your marriage.

So guys and girls, make the most of today, as it is the last rugby-free day for a few months. Enjoy!

  • I can’t wait!!! Luckily I’m a bachelor, so no need for me to be scaredof watching the rugga. Can’t wait for the shouts at the ref, the jumping up at the slight hint of a try, all the beer and biltong that’s going to be consumed. Man I’m getting goose bumps just thinking about it.

  • Ja of course. Need Bale and Huddlestone back for the run-in though. Squad size really helped so far.

    Good Luck! Maybe you can make her into a fan…a lot of us went down that road, and now, I think, are more fanatical about rugby than the men who intrduced us to the game πŸ˜†
