@kiwipie KP, have you devised anything for this Super Season? It will be a bit difficult given there only appear to be four games each week (and only two in the first week which kicks off in just seven days time) so not sure if you can come up with a format to make it challenging given so few games are to be played each week.
As @taniwharugby says, I ran a comp for the 10 rounds of SR Aotearoa last year where I massaged your picks into a maximum of 80 points - 20 points with the usual scoring for the result of each game. 5 points for 8 categories - pick the points for all 4 teams and the number of tries for all 4 teams. I'm happy to do that again and ignore Aus and SA. And no team tipping comp unless we get enough interest to have 8 teams.
Last season the final top 10 was
Joan and Mary 416
I'll start a new thread for 2021 in the coming week.
No, it's not. It's never too late to admit the mistakes(booboos?) you've made in life.
Or in leaving out the 6 Nations Player of the Tournament...... 😉
Oh and he plays for Scotland too......
@Pot-Hale no. It's too fucking late.
You've had over three weeks.
Your mistake was not nominating.
Now now - there's no need to be cranky. If you don't want to include him because you didn't think of him, that's okay to say so....
I don't think you grasp how this works. It's not up to Booboo to nominate every option.
You should have nominated the 2nd best fullback this year.
Eh I grasp it clearly Virgil. I know it's not up to BooBoo - I'm taking the pish, it's just banter.
In my defence, I did actually say something in the nominations like " yeah Smith not bad, Stuart Hogg was pretty good too or a good second" - or words to that effect.
@Pot-Hale said in 15. Fullback of the Year 2016:
Yeah's he's not bad.
Stuart Hogg for me in second place.
Thanks. So you admit you didn't on nominate him and said he wasn't good enough to be considered.
@Pot-Hale on review of the thread I can't see where I was quoting anybody.
I expect it was a comment directly from the judging panel. Which pretty much stems from the fact that Joe Schmidt is a flufflybunny and always will be as far as I am concerned. Fuck him. Never liked him from scouts and school days.
Also tell me what was wrong with the comment "one good win"? Who else did he beat of any quality? ...
Well they beat Scotland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand as well. But if you want to be a begrudging moanfart, why not just say so? Tsk tsk.
@Pot-Hale Two different players PH. Farrell is more of a SH type 2nd five-eighth, where Henshaw is more of a traditional NH centre type (which for you SH guys is the blokes with 12 & 13 on their backs). But yeah, I'd take Farrell due to both his unbeaten year, 6N Grand Slam and 3-0 whitewash down under, plus his overall importance to the team.
While Henshaw is very good and has had a good year, it is hard to argue with the bald facts re Farrell.
I have Henshaw down as an inside-centre in my book. None of that five-eighth shit. Since both wore 12, then Farrell had the better year of the two. So my vote is going with him.
There is no such position as 'inside centre". He who wears 12 is "Second Five-Eighth".
Of the three nominations, Kaino has had a quiet year (by his standards). Robshaw has been integral to England's renaissance, he has a phenomenal engine with a high work rate over the full 80+ minutes. But does he make a stand out difference in a match like Stander has done for Ireland? I'd say no and Stander takes it for me. I quite liked the work Fardy was doing for Aus but he seems to have fallen by the wayside.
Not really, he had a quiet end of the year (stupid lock experiment contributing to this) but he went near beast mode through much of the SH test season.
Mako is worth a nomination for his ball carrying and work around the field but the nomination here is for Prop and a prop's first duty is scrummaging. Mako has improved in this respect but I don't think he strikes fear into too many THs.
