Win Oakley shades with JustRugby Last Man Standing

We’re pleased to announce that Oakley have come on board to offer a superb prize for the winner of our 2012 Super Rugby Last Man Standing competition on Justrugby.net.

The Last Man Standing will win a pair of limited edition Oakley Antix shades that are… wait for it… branded in Sharks colours! Now if that isn’t the coolest thing since rugby players lost the baggy jerseys then I just don’t know what is!

So what is Last Man Standing? Well, 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 Super Rugby rounds (18) and the number of teams (15) we have decided to award (3) selectable byes to each player. All you have to do is select a bye when you wish and you will stay alive for that round.

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 default picks. If you forget to make a pick or pick a team that is not playing in a particular round, you die. Due to lessons learned from last year’s competition, though, we have reintroduced the lifeline concept this season, meaning that you won’t die outright the first time you pick a non-winning team.

NOTE THAT THE ROUNDS WILL CLOSE AT 6AM SOUTH AFRICAN TIME ON THE FRIDAY MORNING 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 totalized 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.

  • @Zibbie (Comment 29) : I’ll do that sure… I promise you I did actually look at it… there was a bug in the program somewhere that caused his to display as a negative, so I went and did the diligence on it and found that he did actually win.

    I didn’t do an article on it cos I didn’t really want to point out my buggy programming skills to the whole world πŸ™‚

    yea . The leopard Pumas game in the currie cup made it for me . my thinking was if the Leoperds where going to have even the smallest chance of winning a game that would be it . but i prepared myself for losing a life

    when i heard they won i downed a few drinks hahah . probably cause me to make my next pick to late hahaa
