Oakley Rat Race Log, Round 4

June 7, 2011
Posted by

What a weekend of upsets, and not only did it turn the Super Rugby log upside down, but so too the Rat Race’s!

It was a weekend of amazing upsets in Super Rugby and it reflects in our Rat Race log where there was a lot of movement on the log.

The Bulls log sees a new leader, the Sharks log is still as tight as ever and in the Stormers and Lions logs, there has been a lot of movement with players seemingly out of it a week ago, now back in contention.

Ollie, JT, Watte and Treehugger capatilised this weekend where they still scored 10 (Ollie 11) for the Round which given some results, is actually quite amazing.  With the majority scoring between 8 and 4, you will find a lot of movement below the leaders in each log.

It again seemed that some players did not make their picks in time, or did not save it, please ensure that you make your picks on time, and that you save the picks by clicking at the bottom on the ‘Save Predictions’ button

    Here you go folks, I am high on drugs at the moment thanks to flu, so I hope I added up correctly!

    See JT is getting a nice lead going there. I for one will not be fooled by this log. More things have happened in the past to veer my thoughts away from those glasses….for now.

    Watch your own back as well, I just jumped on it. I believe we are tie 3rd place overall. I’m gunning for the Bok shades as well.

    Damn, never even paid real attention to that!!! 8O Keeping my eyes on those Stormers Oakleys and didn’t even bother about the Boks ones…though they were for the Twitter thing and overall log is for bragging rights only!

    Is there someplace I can see the Oakley conference log, can’t seem to find it?

    A pair? 1st and 2nd on overall log?

  11. avatar Ollie_ Shark Attack says:
    June 7th, 2011 at 12:01 pm

    Or pair as in 1 set?

  12. avatar Morné says:

    For clarity, the Bok Oakleys will be given away following the Round Robin matches (there are two rounds still left).

    It is for the play-offs alone, so no matter how you do here, you can still win the Bok Oakleys in the final 3 weeks of the Super Rugby when the play-offs take place.

    There will be 5 matches only, so I predict one hell of a dog-fight for that!

    Overall winner for the finals matches wins the Bok Oakleys.

    Reply to Ollie_ Shark Attack @ 12:01 pm:

    One pair only.

    With the current conference you are divided into seperate logs according to the team you support, so following that (Round Robin matches completed, two rounds left, this week and next) we announce the winner of the franchise winners where you will win a Stormers, Sharks, Lions, Cheetahs or Bulls pair of Oakleys.

    Then it all starts from scratch again, everyone on zero points for the finals conference.

    There is a total of 5 matches taking place over a 3 week period.

    Week 1 team 3 plays team 6 and team 4 plays team 5.
    Week 2, you have the two semi-finals
    Week 3, the final.

    One log, one winner, and that guy or gal, will win the Bok Oakleys.

    Eish – 2 rounds left, I though there was one.

    Big dogfight coming up for the Bok glasses :boxing:

    Haha, this week and next, I see numbers 1 and 2 on each log is pretty tight…

    I can imagine how sexy Treehugger will look in
    a pair of Oakleys.
    Not sure about you.
    So guess where my support lies?

    Female logic often reminds me of the
    other misnomer, military intelligence.

    Military Intelligence is not a misnomer it is an oxymoron…

    Like

    Competent CIA

    Efficient African Government

    Nice Muslim Fundamentalist

    Honest Israeli

    etc etc etc

    Morne

    I cannot compare myself to you… you’re some sort of precsient genius expert… I’m just a layplonker… on SB

    Surprisingly, this year is the first year I am not taking predictions as seriously, or rather, as analytically as I did in the past!

    If it takes me 1 minute to make predictions its a lot.

    Of course, reading just about every single news article on rugby from all over the world sort of gives you an advantage in making a call…

    Same here

    Picking on gut feel… which is why I did crazy things like call a Chiefs win over the Blues and a Lions win over the Highlanders… just a feeling… If it takes a minute out of my Thursday afternoon it’s a lot!
