  • @kiwipie

    Thanks KP! Virtual pint (I'll buy you a real one if you ever come to TK)

    @hydro11 are you playing this year? Without you, the Sunjags are probably in big doo-doo...



  • someone in the Chiefs should give that KP joker a nudge

    He's a canny player, always leaves it late to tip which is the secret to his unprecedented success.

  • Great stuff, only 2 tippers from last year failed to turn up and we had some new people to fill the gaps. I've sorted into teams in the Squads document with these changes.

    MIkedogz from the SunJags into the BOP Chiefs to replace Midge.
    No changes to Blues A.
    No changes to Blues B.
    No changes to South Island.
    No Quarter into Hurricanes Gold to replace Chaz.
    No changes to Hurricanes Black.
    No changes to Barbarians.
    Handsome Ray and Bruce Kenyon into the Sunjags to replace Mikedogz and fill the vacant spot.

    Tipping as individuals (for now) are mikeasda34234r4r3 and Winfreux. You can miss one week and not be dropped from a team, miss 2 weeks in a row and you are goneburger.

    The reigning champions are Hurricanes Gold and here is a reminder of last season's Top 10

  • And here's some scores so far - plenty went for the Highlanders 1-8, nobody for the Rebels 25+.

    BOP Chiefs 12 - 10 Hurricanes Gold
    Blues A 11 - 14 Hurricanes Black
    Blues B 8 - 11 Barbarians
    South Island 13 - 14 SunJags

    These people have 15 and all share the lead.

  • The results are in for Week 1, nobody bagged 7/7 results even though 7 backed the Bulls to win. Plenty picked 6/7. Leading at the moment is, ahem, me - lucky to pick up 10 for Lions as top and Reds as bottom for scoring. Mikedogz the best for margin picks, 4/7 for him.

    Big wins for the SunJags and BOP Chiefs, Blues A scraped home and Blues B and the Barbarian drew. Go to http://bit.do/tsf18 for all the details.

    BOP Chiefs 48 - 42 Hurricanes Gold
    Blues A 44 - 43 Hurricanes Black
    Blues B 42 - 42 Barbarians
    South Island 41 - 51 SunJags

  • Amazingly when a team hardly ever beats NZ opposition, the Blues were heavily backed with only 4 of 43 going for the Chiefs. Similarly only 7/43 picked the Reds. Consequently nobody at all has 2/2 so far and many have 0/2. Best on 12 points are Mikedogz, Virgil, Phooey, Winger, Paj, Bones and Richie.

    BOP Chiefs 7 - 7 Hurricanes Black
    Blues A 5 - 6 Barbarians
    Blues B 3 - 4 SunJags
    South Island 4 - 6 Hurricanes Gold

    Disappointingly all the new tippers failed to tip in the 2nd week. If you know who they are, can you drop them a line as I can't find a matching user on TSF.



  • Well this is getting embarrassing. I top scored again and my lead is now 22 - what are the rest of you doing?

    With the draw in South Africa, there were only 6 counting games and only myself, No Quarter, Winger and Bones picked 5 of them. A fair few only managed 3 and margins were hard to come by.

    BOP Chiefs 31 - 37 Hurricanes Black
    Blues A 32 - 33 Barbarians
    Blues B 30 - 22 SunJags
    South Island 26 - 35 Hurricanes Gold

    Picking the Blues and not picking the Rebels...



  • A few missing tippers this week, Broughie, Cactus Jack and Bones - I've sent them messages here.

    2/2 results not a problem for most but generally conservative on the margins so not many 10 point scores. Leading on 15/20 so far this week are KP, Tim, JK, No Quarter, Winger and Hydro11.

    BOP Chiefs 10 - 11 Barbarians
    Blues A 14 - 10 SunJags
    Blues B 12 - 11 South Island
    Hurricanes Gold 12 - 9 Hurricanes Black



  • Well Bones and Broughie came through with late tips, Bones to reach respectability - Broughie not so much but still not the lowest of the weekend. Leading all scorers this week was TR with 54, 3 ahead of Hurrycanes with Bruce Kenyon the only other to reach 50 - he is the only one with 2 scores of 50 or more despite not tipping Week 2! Joining these 3 with 6/7 results picked were Paj and ACT Crusader who were not so successful with the margins. Outstandingly poor tipping from Unite with only 14 points, only the Highlanders and Sharks picked correctly and no margins. Joan and Mary made even worse picks but avoided the week's wooden spoon by getting the Sharks as top scorers.

    3 games went against the TSF choice (Hurricanes, Blues & Jaguares) and if you missed all 3, this week was a struggle.

    On the category picks, the majority picked the Sharks to top score but Phooey was the only one to pick the Brumbies and get the maximum 10.

    I'm still leading overall, by 17 from TR who is 6 ahead of No Quarter with another 4 players tied for 4th, 5 points behind him.

    The Barbarians remain the only undefeated team after squeezing past the BOP Chiefs, consistency the key as the Chiefs had to take Hooroo's 30 and Mikedogz's 31 because of Unite's disaster. Blues A thrashed the SunJags on the back of TR's star turn and solidity from the rest - the SunJags team let down Bruce Kenyon and Barbarian badly.

    South Island had their first win, downing Blue B with Corkscrew and ACT Crusader their best - only DK passed 40 for Blues B. Finally their was a high-scoring draw between the 2 Canes sides, No Quarter the best for Gold and Hurrycanes and Paj for Black.

    The ladder is still very tight, every team has won at least 1 game and Blues A lead on points scored.
