  • 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
    3rd Barbarians 46 - 41 BOP Chiefs

    Final Hurricanes Black 87 - 79 Blues B
    3rd Barbarians 89 - 85 BOP Chiefs

    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.



  • @dogmeat NPC is waaaaayyyy harder to guess tip!



  • @taniwharugby maybe but the Sequel Cup is the toughest Comp of all. Only been competed for 8 times as it's so gruelling. Really sorts the men from the boys.

    Right now I'm enthusiastic to run an NPC tipping comp this season after taking a break last time. As long as people keep on tipping, I'll keep running it - may need to acquire some new blood when you scan down the names who are no longer involved.



  • @dogmeat Awesome statting DM. Good to see there are still 8 ever presents but quite a few who have entered more than a few.

    To be honest the BOP Chiefs were a bit disappointed in Donsteppa this season with his huge reputation. He needs to realise that it is performance that will keep him in the team and not just reputation. He's still better than Sportboy though ....

    It's curious to hear a captain talking about retention standards while Sportboy is a life member. 🙂

    Completely understand. I wouldn't want that getting out if it was me!

    We have seen All Blacks with long careers for similar reasons....



  • Thanks KP for continuing to run the best picking competition, and also thanks to the other Canes Black members for carrying this food bill through the season



  • Thanks KP for another great job in keeping this all running



  • Cheers @KiwiPie !



  • Thanks! @KiwiPie
