Super Rugby
Super 18s
2016

This year's Super Rugby tipping comp starts on Friday 26th February and will conclude after 17 rounds in mid-July. The Super 12 comp, which began in 1996, became the Super 14 comp in 2006 and then Super XV in 2011. This year it has has expanded into a Super 18s comp with the addition of one more team from South Africa (from Eastern Cape Province), and the introduction of one team from Japan and another from Argentina: Tokyo Sunwolves and Buenos Aires Jaguars.

The rules are simple. They're the same last prior 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 9/9 scores a bonus point; ditto for 8/8 or 7/7 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 is, sometimes, just 35 minutes later. If
    you lodge your picks late you score zero for any game that's started.
This is the 15th edition of the Super Rugby tipping comp.. Last season's competition was won by Ozzz2002, with paper_aero and N-Bomb following him. George95 (2014), Sypher (2013), Howie72 (2012) and N-Bomb (2011) were the other recent winners of this competition. No "major" winless or spoonless streaks going, so we can all gun for a few records beginning this year smile

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

Welcome to the 2016 Super 18 Rugby Season! 13 of us lined up on the starting blocks....BxBarracuda and Davjack are missing from the line-up and have been replaced by Dizart and ElfTwinkle.

The season itself got off to a nice start with most of the "expected to win" teams doing so...Defending champions Highlanders were not lucky, losing narrowly to the Blues away, but the Brumbies, Chiefs, Sharks, Stormers and Waratahs all notched wins in the opening round. There were also wins for the Rebels, Lions and the new team from Argentina, the Jaguars...From the reports, it looks to be a real long season ahead for the Reds, Bulls, Kings and the new Japanese team, the Sunwolves.

Our defending champion here, ozzz2002 decided to work his way up from the bottom, but is still avoiding the spoon (he went spoonless the last season...the only one to do so)...wwe84 and Sypher trusted the Blues to win at home against the champions, and have been rewarded with the season's first bonus points. srini701 picked all matches bar the Blues' win, and so wins the first HoF for the season, while George95 takes the first spoon.

Welcome back to Davjack. Will he be a regular this year or will he continue his "hide" and "seek" game with us all? We will know over the next few months grin

4 Teams maintained their unbeaten start to the season while 5 teams are yet to open their accounts (2 of them had byes this round). The Chiefs lost at home to the Gauteng Lions in the biggest "upset" of the round (none of us saw this coming)...but at least some of us should have seen the Queensland Reds losing....surprisingly we all missed that too!

Other than those 2 matches, five of us picked the rest, so lots of HoFs. Davjack didn't start well, and wwe84 joined him in the spoon column. PaulE did not lodge his picks this week, but as 3 away teams won this round, he did better than the spooners!

The Tokyo Sunwolves came pretty close to winning their first ever match in the Super 18 Rugby competition after holding a big advantage early in the second half. They will be kicking themselves for losing it from there against the Free State Cheetahs. The Queensland Reds likewise dished out their best performance of the season, but it was still to no avail, as they ended on the losing side against the Melbourne Rebels. The Wellington Hurricanes got their campaign back on track, winning a close match against the Auckland Blues, while the champions Otago Highlanders had it easy at home against the Gauteng Lions.

The Waikato Chiefs mauled the Cape Kings badly, while the ACT Brumbies also did not have to stretch themselves against the Western Australia Force. The Natal Sharks were behind for a long part of their match before pulling through against the Western Province Stormers in a tense cross-conference derby. This means the Sharksand Brumbies (who face the Stormers next week) are now the only unbeaten teams left in the competition.

paper_aero and ElfTwinkle take the honours this week with 6/7 picks while a bunch of us got 5 (2 matches were picked by all). paper_aero joins srini701 at the top of the ladder, while Davjack slips behind after a second successive spoon.

The Stormers produced their best performance of the season to beat the Brumbies, ending the unbeaten start to the season for the Brumbies. The Sharks however escaped defeat, DRAWING their match against the Bulls, and remain the only unbeaten side in the competition so far....there was another draw too this round, as the Reds and the Blues played out an entertaining draw. The Lions won the fight of the "big cats" against the Cheetahs, while the Chiefs pipped the Jaguares in a see-saw battle. The Sunwolves are still looking for their first win after losing yet again, while the Crusaders smashed the Kings.

Dizart takes the HoF this round with 7/9 picks, missing only the 2 draws....Davjack and illiniman14 get bonus points for daring to go against the trends in those two matches and picking the underdogs. A bunch of us got the spoon to even out that column with the HoF total smile

The Waratahs bounced back from successive losses to beat the Reds in a hard-fought derby, the Stormers claimed their fourth victory from five games this season as they saw off the Jaguares, the Crusaders came from behind to clinch victory over the Sharks, the Bulls breathed a huge sigh of relief after holding on for a hard-fought win over the Sunwolves, the Highlanders consolidated their spot among the tournament's frontrunners with a big win over the Rebels, the Chiefs continued with their fine recent form thrashing the Force, while the Hurricanes were made to work hard for their victory over a spirited Kings side.

There are no more unbeaten sides left in the comp with the defeat of the Sharks, while 3 teams (Reds, Sunwolves, Kings) are still looking for their first win. Will one of them break their duck next week? Keep watching this space (and hedging your tips on them wink grin )

Most of us had a good week, but Sypher had it the best, picking the whole lot and jagging a bonus point that went with it, to zoom up the table...PaulE had a not so good week and is now within the radar of Davjack for the cellar spot.

The Melbourne Rebels picked up their fourth win of 2016 and a first ever over the Waratahs, the Eastern Cape Kings won their first victory of the season, while the Waikato Chiefs put in a brilliant performance against the Brumbies on the road.

Our defending champion ozzz2002 pulled up his socks to zoom up the table, while PaulE made it a hat-trick of spoons to complete his slide into the cellar.

The Lions surprised the Sharks, but the biggest shock of the round came from the Queensland Reds who upset defending champions Highlanders for their first win in 2016. The Waikato Chiefs meanwhile won their 5th match on the trot.

The Crusaders have won 4 in a row now, and the Wellington Hurricanes are unbeaten over 5 rounds too. The Highlanders themselves lost after 5 wins in a row At the other end of the table, it was the the Reds' first win in 7 rounds, the Force is now 5 rounds without a win, the Jaguares have not tasted a win in 6 rounds, while the Tokyo Sunwolves are yet to win a match!

George95 kept faith in the Lions to pull off the shock win, and so earned himself a bonus point and a HoF for the round. Davjack took another spoon and continues his musical chair for the cellar spot with PaulE.

After the Sharks, it was the turn of the Stormers to go to the Lions' den and come back with mud on their face...the Cheetahs literally mauled the new team from Asia, the Sunwolves, while the other new team, the Jaguares is finding life tough too in the Super 18s.

4 of us had a perfect week here. gtho4 and Howie72 pick their first HoFs along with paper_aero and N-Bomb, while srini701 and ElfTwinkle take their first spoons of the season and fall to new lows.

Did Davjack get four or five? Because 29 plus 4 is 33, not 34.

Looks like it's a 5 as that column only adds to 72. It should add to 73.

A good week to have skipped a round as 5 road teams won over the weekend! The Crusaders picked up a seventh win from eight games this season as they outclassed the Brumbies; the Stormers won their sixth victory of the season beating a spirited Reds side; The Lions were too strong for the Kings; The Waratahs got their campaign back on track and the Sharks ended a three-match losing streak when they beat defending champions the Highlanders, but the biggest news of the round the historic first ever win for the Sunwolves, who outsmarted fellow new boys the Jaguares.

One match was picked by none of us here and another by all, as 4 of us took home a HoF with 6/8 picks. gtho4 continues his steady climb up the ladder with back to back HoF shows. Sypher and PaulE added bonus points to their kitty keeping their trust in the Sunwolves. At the other end, Davjack picked up a 4th spoon and slip further behind.

The Beunos Aires Jaguares scored their first ever win at home and only their second in the competition, smashing the Kings out of sight. The Queensland Reds also won for only the second time this season, battling past the Cheetahs. Meanwhile, the Waikato Chiefs keep winning, notching their 8th win in 9 rounds, while the Waratahs pulled off a close win on the road against the Stormers.

srini701 scored a second HoF in a row, picking 7 of the 8 matches. It's his 4th for the season, the most so far here. He missed only the Stormers match. N-Bomb matched srini game to game and so takes his 3rd HoF. Sypher also got a HoF this round but he missed the Brumbies' loss. PaulE was late lodging his picks, but since everybody had picked the Chiefs, he gets a gimme point for the same. That point however couldn't save him from the spoon and he finds himself sharing the round's cutlery with ElfTwinkle and illiniman14. ozzz2002 defaulted the round (all ok? confused )

The theme of the round is "three" ... 3 away teams won this round, 3 matches were picked by everybody this round, 3 people missed a sole pick bonus point, 3 people are still looking for their first HoF, 3 are still looking for their first spoon after 11 rounds, and srini701 made it 3 HoFs in a row grin

It's a bit crowded at the top as 4 people are jostling each other there, with one more person just a point behind....we are headed for some exciting times wink

Friday the 13th proved unlucky for the Canterbury Crusaders and Sypher. The Crusaders lost for the first time this season on road and for the first time since round 1....Sypher ended up with his first spoon for the season!

N-Bomb is not complaining though, as he picked the lot (barring the last minute draw between the Sunwolves and the Stormers) and takes sole possession of the lead for the first time this season. PaulE also managed the same feat in picks this round for just his second HoF....

Apart from that first loss of Crusaders in 11 rounds, the Waratahs are now VVVV in their last 4 matches, the Highlanders VVV, while the Hurricanes are an interesting VLVLV in their last 5 matches. The Kings are winless since round 6.

With about 3-4 teams turning out to be really "useless" this season, the fixtures involving them are turning out to be predictable. We had our best round this season and one of the best ever in the comp as we hit a success rate of 82.65%. Two matches were picked by everybody and another 2 by everybody bar one.

Dizart, PaulE, paper_aero and illiniman14 picked the lot this round for the HoF spots (first HoF for illiniman14 and second on the trot for PaulE). Davjack takes home his 5th spoon for the season despite getting 4/7 right.
