Super Rugby
Super 15s
2019

This year's Super Rugby tipping comp starts on Friday 15 February and will conclude after 18 rounds on Friday 14th June.
The rules are simple. They're the same as in previous years:
    points
    default

    draws
    upsets
    perfect picks
    draw bonus

    dead-heats

    deadline
    one point for each correct pick.
    if you forget to pick, the away teams are all yours; but if the wooden
    spoon score is more, it's the spoon score.
    for those brave souls amongst us, you can pick a draw (good luck).
    if you pick a game solo, you score a bonus point (or one of two tipsters).
    of 7/7 scores a bonus point; ditto for 6/6 or 5/5 when there are byes.
    no-one picks a draw, bonus point for the minority who picked the upset
    win (same as FLC comp).
    weekly wins vs. wooden spoon countback determine podium finishes; if
    they're identical, bonus pts will be used.
    is always Thursday midnight FT time, with a period of grace through to
    kick-off in the first game which, until April, is just 35 minutes later. If
    you lodge your picks late you score zero for any game that has started.
This is the 18th edition of the Super Rugby tipping comp, first run in 2002! Last year's competition was won by Dizart, with George95 and N-Bomb following him.

Howie72 (2017), Dizart (2016), ozzz2002 (2015), PaulE (2014), Sypher (2013) and Howie72 (2012)[/b] were the 6 previous winners of this competition in recent times. As you can see, NOBODY has been able to retain their title in the last few years. Can Dizart break the repeat winner hoodoo? Or will it be a new winner yet again?

All trivia tipping comp junkies, and anyone else who follows the game they play in heaven, please sign in!

Welcome to the 18th edition of the Super rugby tipping competition here at Funtrivia. This is my 9th edition of hosting this comp, and will hopefully FINALLY learn the nuances of this game this year. So please forgive lack of match details in the write-ups and do comment each week if possible on the games, so people like me can learn something.

12 of the 13 runners returned from 2018. LeoDaVinci is missing, though he should have just posted "defaulting...will start next week." Default score is "aways" in this comp, and 6 of the road teams started with a win (it was 6 home teams same time last season). The scores seem to suggest there were at least 4 close matches. We all managed to pick 3 games between us (and that was the spoon score). Defending Champion Dizart and perennial podium-resident N-Bomb have started the season well, missing only one match each (the same one for both). George95 and Sypher start with a spoon each, but both have been past winners of this comp, so don't read too much into their score...as Howie72 said "This is just as difficult round 1 to tip as any other season, maybe trickier."

There....I have successfully completed round 1 write-up without a single mention of any team in the comp grin

Welcome back to LeoDaVinci, which now makes it the same lineup as last season...If 6 away teams won in round 1, the home teams returned the favour this week, with 6 of them winning. The New South Wales Waratahs were the only road team to win, by a single point against the supposed "weaklings" of the competition, the Tokyo Sunwolves. Waikato Chiefs and Gauteng Lions, two traditional stronghouses, both lost away. The Canterbury Crusaders, Otago Highlanders, and Natal Sharks are already the only 3 teams with a 2-0 record.

We all picked 3 matches and missed one, so it was the remaining 3 matches that made a difference to our scores. Elftwinkle, wwe84 and George95 missed only that single match for the round's honours, while Dizart and paper_aero got only those 3 we all picked, for their first spoons.

The Tokyo Sunwolves pulled off a major, major upset on the road, shocking the Waikato Chiefs. 4 Road teams won this round, including Canterbury Crusaders, who are already the only unbeaten team left in the comp after just 3 rounds! The Natal Sharks lost at home after winning their first 2 matches. The Jaguars won their second match in a row at home, but another strong team, the Otago Highlanders lost this round, on the road to Melbourne Rebels. So guess we may not be having the Kiwi sides romp through the competition this whole season, after all.

Our first bonus points went out this round, 4 in all, with Sypher bagging half of them. Those 2 bonus points help him zoom up our table. N-Bomb and PaulE take the round's honours while 4 of us take spoons, including a second in a row for paper_aero.

The home teams had a field day with all 7 of them winning. 6 of us went with all homes and so get "perfect pick" bonus points (maybe we should add that rule of "picks of all homes don't qualify for a bonus" here too mad ).

We had one of our very best rounds as a team in this comp, with 86.5% right picks. PaulE and ozzz2002 missed the deadline for the first match, and if not for some brave punts by wwe84, Sypher and srini701, our overall success rate this week would well have crossed the 90% mark.

As Howie72 said, this must have been a tough round to pick, with matches that could have gone either way. The Waikato Chiefs and the Hurricanes drew their match and naturally no one saw this coming. Sypher and wwe84 get a bonus point for siding with the underdogs. The Crusaders-Highlanders match was cancelled after the tragedy in Christchurch and I have decided to award everyone a point for this tie. George95 and LeoDaVinci take the round's honours, while paper_aero was roundly stumped for his 3rd spoon in 5 rounds.

The Canterbury Crusaders lost for the first time in a century, the Waikato Chiefs snapped a 6-game losing streak in style, surprising a more favoured Bulls on the road, the Queensland Reds won for the 3rd time in a row at home against the brumbies, the Blues shocked the Highlanders, while the Sunwolves, well, continue to lose....and have been axed from the Super rugby from 2021...

A lot was happening on the field but not much in our standings here. ozzz2002 zoomed up the table after a stellar round and a bonus point, while srini701, gtho4 and wwe84 take home spoons. srini701 has 2 more columns to fill now.

Wellington Hurricanes lost a great chance to go top of the ladder after they were well beaten at home by Canterbury Crusaders, who thus bounce back from 2 winless rounds in style. Onl;y one home team won this round, with the Auckland Blues winning over the Stormers. Five road teams won, including another "upset" win for the Tokyo Sunwolves, who shocked the Waratahs. The Waraths sequence this season so far reads LVBVLVL....they will therefore win the next round smile

gtho4 and PaulE take the spoons this round while 5 of us won the honours. One of the five was Sypher, and this now leaves srini701 as the only one in our comp without a winner's tag to his name, just 7 weeks into the season...

The Auckland Blues have suddenly woken up and have won 3 in a row, while The Stormers have lost 3 in a row. The rest of the teams continue to yo-yo between victories and defeats each round. We had 2 matches picked by everybody here and another 2 matches that had just 2 or 3 right picks. Ozzz2002 was one of the 3 winners this round and he joins N-Bomb at the top. Howie72 takes his first spoon, leaving only our two toppers without a spoon now. srini701 is still searching for his first win and also for his first bonus point.

Looks like I can jinx teams both ways smile The Blues lost after 3 wins in a row while The Stormers won after 3 losses. Let's see....the Highlanders are winless since round 2 and had a bye and a draw amidst 5 losses...and N-Bomb and ozzz2002 are still spoonless here wink ....and srini701 remains the only one without a winner's medal after 9 rounds. Sypher picked up one more bonus point and is now in 3rd place.
