ANYONE PLAYING OUR JUSTRUGBY COMPETITIONS PLEASE READ THIS!

Right, now that I have your attention…

Rumours are that the Hurricanes-Crusaders game this weekend will be canceled, in light of the recent earthquake in Christchurch. Our systems do not have a built-in mechanism for dealing gracefully with a canceled game, so we’re going to have to adapt on the fly.

Please note that, in the case that the game does not go ahead, it will be scored as a draw on Last Man Standing, meaning anyone who has picked either side will lose their life. Nobody has picked either team as yet, but this article serves as a warning that you should not do so until we have definite confirmation that the game is going to take place. Should anyone pick either side for LMS this week, we will endeavour to contact them via email and offer them the opportunity to make an alternative pick. Should they not respond, we will allocate them a bye pick for this round.

The implications for Fantasy League are simpler. If the game is cancelled, no Hurricanes or Crusaders players will score any points this round, so please don’t include them in your starting XV unless you are sure the game is going ahead.

We will keep you updated as we get more information here.

  • well, I think we’re safe here, cos nobody in their right minds would want to pick a certain winner from that game anyway…

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 3) : based on what?

    Tank Lanning has received info that it has already been called off and their should be a formal announcement soon. Some guy on Twitter also reckons it’s being pulled from the betting sites.

    Although I guess they will now start taking bets on whether it will be canceled or not 🙂 Bookies…

  • @Jarson (AddicteD) (Comment 6) : 2 points each, is what they seem to be suggesting.

    The calendar is so crowded that there simply isn’t an option to reschedule, IMO.

  • @Jarson (AddicteD) (Comment 8) : from a JustRugby point of view, rescheduling it would be an absolute nightmare for us. I have no idea how we would accommodate that

  • according to Tanks message it will be cancelled to honor the christchurch people, so i can’t see it being postponed or move to another venue.

  • the cancellation has just been confirmed on the SARU website.

    Each side will be awarded two points.

    DO NOT pick either side for Last Man Standing.

  • I don’t think it will affect LMS too much – at this point in time it is too risky to predict winner here 🙄

  • @robdylan (Comment 12) : This is going to make the chances of 2 Kiwi teams in the Play-offs that much harder.
