Round 7 of the Currie Cup has come to an end and it’s time to have a look at how the various team managers are faring in the Fantasy League over on It was a pretty low scoring round, with tries not coming as thick and fast as we have become used to.

Even though Te Maklik outscored Hansa in this round, the single point gained was not enough to take back top spot on the log, and Hansa keeps pole position, now with a 5,5 point lead. The round was won by Jopie Adlams XV, scoring 400.25 points including the 50 point MVP bonus. Daniels Destroyers was beaten to the MVP bonus by a mere 3 points, with our friend KSA Shark playing as Sandsharks ending a respectable third, ten points off that MVP bonus.

The top five is rounded up by Red Zibearians, Dwellies Sharks and Ekkies XV. Ekkies XV breaks back into the top 5, replacing White Stripes, who loses a position. Spots 3 to 5 is split by only 25 points and will keep changing hands over the coming weeks.

Comparing last week to this week, the top scorer this week would not have made the top 5 last week, with the winner for the weekend only scoring 21 points, being Elton Jantjies. In second spot was Bulls unknown Warwick Tecklenburg, on 20 points. There is a joint third spot, with Johann Sadie, Werner Kruger and Sias Ebersohn all finishing the weekend on 18 points.

At the half way point in the pool stages of the Currie Cup, Fred Michalak still leads as top points scorer overall, on 132 points. Demetri Catrakilis (116) has made up ground in the kicking Frenchman, narrowing the lead to 16 points. Sias Ebersohn (112) takes over third spot from Janno Vermaak (110). Johann Sadie takes fifth spot from Corne Uys, being the only non-halfback in the top five, on 97 points.

Looking forward to this weekend, there are two bigger unions taking in smaller unions, and my money is on the Cheetahs to properly dispatch the Leopards in Potch, and the Cheetahs players should be good value. An article on the injuries and returning players will follow later in the week as the squads are announced.


  • cheetahs not winning cost me badly this round, had only cheetahs, province and Lions in my starting 15, cheetahs losing cost me a starting 15 all win plus the 1.5 times the win away from home points. That may well have won me the round, and given me the mvp points 🙁 🙁
