Oakley Rat Race, Round 5


Oh boy! Did we have an interesting Round!

And no I am not only referring to the actual games which saw two draws, and (for some) a somewhat surprise result at Newlands, but also the movement on the Rat Race log!

One log is seemingly decided, but as far as the remaining four go, it’s still anyone’s game!

A little slip up by Ollie saw our resident lady close the gap on the Sharks log to only one point going into the final round!  Grin and Bryce also played themselves into contention with some brilliant individual weekly scores.

The Bulls log remains as tight as ever, where the top three are seperated by 3 points only!  Oh and just so by the way, I got word yesterday that the Bulls Oakley’s landed in SA!!!

JT is still clinging to the lead on the Stormers log but is closely marked by Namboer, with Number12 opening up a 5 point gap on the Lions log.

There is one round left ladies and gentleman!  Next week this time, I will announce the winners of the magnificent Oakley Rugby Union Antix sunglasses for each conference!

Get your picks in on time, and good luck to all!

  1. too close for comfort :? I have my picks logged in for the final weekend but will be double guessing myself all week and probably change the picks again and again :bangheadt:

  2. I must say that it is a helluva less stressful chasing the leaders than actually being the leader!!!!

    In one of the earlier conferences I was one of the leaders till the last round and then imploded spectacularly!!!! Quite beautiful actually.

    I’m hoping that happens with the leaders in the Bulls division…..

    hehehe – I usually do NOT back the Stormers: called a hedge bet but this season they have screwed me over to my pleasant surprise… but now the Oakleys are on the line!
    If I back them and they lose I have a double dissapointment! My team lost, I lost!
    If I back the Cheetahs I am happy my team won but I lost the oakleys! :bangheadt:
    Or I win the Oakleys and my team lost!? laughawie:

    I think the Stormers are in for a loooong afternoon if the Cheetahs rock up and play they way they can play. But should the Cheetahs be slightly off their game, the Stormers should thrash them.

    I’m also not so sure about the Crusaders and the Reds having easy wins.

    this weekend is certainly not cut-and-dried!

    Those Oakleys are a long way off.

    yep – Chiefs will want to finish off the season on a high and on their day they can thrash the Reds.

    Saders v Canes – SHOULD be a clear win for the Saders even without SBW.

    Tahs v Brumbies – I don’t trust those Brumbies and I hope they DO manage a win because that will open up the back door for a 3rd SA side to make the play-offs

    Bulls v Sharks – don’t care who wins, either way an SA side will go through – CAN’T WAIT because this is going to be one MOERSE fight

    Saders v Canes – SHOULD be a clear win for the Saders even without SBW.

    BUT! and a BIG But! Guys like Nonu, Gear, Hore etc. etc. will be OUT to prove a POINT! Their last chance to show Henry they are good enough for the AB jerseys

    Yes, good luck everyone…everyone playing for the Bulls shades, everyone playing for the Tjarks shades, everyone playing for the Lions shades and everyone playing for the Cheetahs shades!!
    The Stormers guys – did you lot not forget the stove on or need to go play kenntjie at Kenhardt?!?!?
