TSF Super Rugby Tipping 2018 http://bit.do/tsf18

  • Done, just in time!

  • at least not many woulda picked the Bumbies over the canes, not many woulda got the margin on Chiefs/'landers (or those like me who tipped thinking the 'landers were at 'home')

    Be one of those rounds I think...

  • Got a good feeling about this round of tipping..

  • @taniwharugby Says the man who was the only one to top 40 points ....

  • Everything is live on the Google Drive. Pretty much carnage for most tippers - most managed to pick only 2 or 3 results correctly. No time right now for a report ....

  • @kiwipie thats why it was one of those weeks!

  • Busy day for me yesterday so no score updates yet - final week of tipping is next weekend and the form is live at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1FwamO4mVv9HACBOnXvswRrkHT58TOMoR60X-HZ3uho4/edit?usp=sharing

  • All updated now. With just one week left, the individual champion is still not decided. Hydro11 leads Winger by 11 points which is a handy lead but not conclusive. Broughie moved up to 3rd with the best score of the weekend but he's probably too far back to win.

    Broughie and Unite were the only ones to pick 7/7, most of us stumbling on the Reds v Rebels, Bulls v Jags or Stormers v Sharks (or in some cases all 3).

    In the team finals, the last weekend was the first leg, the second leg is this weekend. Canes Black beat Blues B 43-41 with a 49 from Hydro and solid scoring from everyone else. Blues B had Broughie and Dogmeat over 50 but were let down by a pair of 24s from Hayden and DK, crumbling under the pressure of a final.

    In the 3rd/4th playoff, BOP Chiefs hold a one point lead over Barbarians. The Plate is no contest with Canes Gold already 15 ahead of the woeful SunJags and Blues A look like avoiding the wooden spoon against South Island despite only 3 of them turning up.

    Finally the Cup Final is between Hydro 11 and Richie next weekend.

    Hurricanes Black 43 - 41 Blues B
    Barbarians 43 - 44 BOP Chiefs
    Hurricanes Gold 41 - 26 SunJags
    Blues A 34 - 29 South Island

  • Make sure you're in for the final week of tipping for the Super Rugby season.


    Questions that will be answered this weekend.

    Can Hydro11 hold onto his 11 point lead and win the title he win in 2016 having been runner-up last season? Or can 2015 champion Winger surge past?

    Can Hurricanes Black hold onto their 2 point lead from the first leg against Blues B to win their first title since 2011 or can Blues B finally win their first title having never finished higher than 6th before?

    Can Hydro beat Richie in the TSF Sequel Cup as well as take the title to become only the second tipper to win the league and a cup in the same season (after Justin77 in 2009)?

  • As it's the last week I'll post an interim update

    Top 10 overall
    Hydro11 651
    Winger 638
    Broughie 629
    Hurrycanes 619
    Virgil 614
    TaniwhaRugby 611
    Higgins 609
    KP 601
    Bruce Kenyon 597
    Langakali 596

    Hurricanes Black 11 - 12 Blues B (Canes Black lead by 1)
    Barbarians 11 - 14 BOP Chiefs (BOP Chiefs lead by 4)
    Hurricanes Gold 11 - 10 SunJags (Canes Gold lead by 16)
    Blues A 4 - 6 South Island (Blues A lead by 3)

    Hydro11 12 v 7 Richie

  • And the results are in and processed.

    Canes Black take the title - well done team, Hydro11 and Hurrycanes the consistent performers to bring them the title. Unlucky Blues B, after 7 seasons of finishing 6th or lower.

    Hydro11 takes the individual title but by just 3 points from Winger who had a late surge but it wasn't quite enough. Hydro has been 1st, 2nd, 1st in the past 3 seasons so maybe he knows what he's doing.

    The Sequel Cup is shared by Hydro and Richie, they could not be separated with 39 each.

    Everything on the website is updated

    Final Hurricanes Black 44 - 38 Blues B

    no idea what's going on in this thread but let me guess, two of these dopes in the wooden spoon zone kept picking the Blues to win every week...

    Worse, they quit the team to join Toulon in France, left in the middle of the night too

  • Congrats to Hydro. Blues B made a good fist of things this year. Way to go team mates. Thanks KiwiPie for all the work you do. Great job.

  • So next season should we rename them as Blues Not A or maybe True Blues given they seem to mirror Tana's Tossers?

  • @virgil plus we also dont have a coach!

  • Another top competition Kiwipie! Well done to Blues B for not sucking as bad as our beloved team!

  • and yes congrats to all the winners and thanks once again to KP for all his work - at the same time as his World Cup one too!!

    As I'm sure KP's way too busy I have crunched some numbers for him.

    Only eight tippers have stayed the course and entered all 13 Super Tipping comps - poor old KP disqualified himself for first two seasons.

    Of these 4; Donsteppa, Crucial, Winger, Hooroo have won it while Paj, Joan and Mary, DK and myself have only mustered 6 top tens between us.

    Of the 65 tipsters who have participated in at least five years Donsteppa is the most consistent - only twice finishing outside the top 15 for an average finish of 10th. If you drop his outlier of 42nd in 2010 Don's average drops to 7.4

    However Hydro makes a strong argument for being our best tipster (despite having only competed in the last 4 editions). After an inauspicious 42nd placing in 2015 Hydro has gone 1st, 2nd, 1st to be our only repeat champion. Note - Donsteppa and Winger have NPC titles to go with their Super ones and TR has two NPC's.

    Others to average better than 15th are: Winger, Langakali and Cactus Jack - all past winners.

    In total 113 have tipped at least one season including three previous Champions Bullethole (2007), RugbyGal (2010) and Quo Vadis (2011) who no longer tip.
