JustRugby Currie Cup competitions are OPEN

The JustRugby.net 2011 Currie Cup 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.

Fantasy League
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 Currie Cup 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 indisputable achievements such as being in the match 22, actually making it onto the field, scoring points, getting carded etc.

The Currie Cup is going to be very tough this year because of the number of players unavailable due to Bok duty. Prove to us and to your friends that you can spot the next big things on the domestic rugby landscape!

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 Currie Cup rounds (14) and the number of teams (8) we have had to update the selections a little. You will need to select each team twice during the competition, with the exception of the two weakest teams (the Leopards and the Pumas) whom you will need to select one each.

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 default picks. If you forget to make a pick, you die. Experience has taught us, though, that lifelines are pretty necessary (after seeing everyone dead within about 4 rounds of the Super Rugby competition!) and you’ll be pleased to know that each player again has a lifeline for the Currie Cup. Note that lifelines do not apply to missed picks. Those will kill you instantly.

NOTE THAT THE ROUNDS WILL CLOSE AT 5PM SOUTH AFRICAN TIME ON THE FRIDAY 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 totaled 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.

Get on over to JustRugby.net and get your teams registered. Your Sharksworld login details can be used to login to Justrugby.net.

Prizes for both competitions will be announced in due course.

    @The Sharks Sharkie (Comment 26) :

    Some notes that have confused the odd new player.

    You must 1st fill your squad of 30 players before you can start selecting your Captain and your Starting XV or making trades.

    Also remember that any changes you make to your squad of 30 before the close of round 1 will NOT use up any of your 10 trades. If you do bring the same guy in and out a few times it tends to confuse the system on occassion, so double check your squad to make sure you haven’t picked Willem Alberts 30 times. πŸ˜‰
