Dog-fight for Bok Oakleys

June 30, 2011
Posted by

As was expected, the race for the Springbok Oakley Antix is one hell of a dog-fight.

With only 5 games to play in our final Rat Race Conference, one mistake will turn out to be one mistake too many!  Of course, one inspired selection which might earn you 3 or more points can be the difference between you and 20 other guys all wanting to get their hands on the awesome Springbok Oakley Rugby Antix.

The play-off matches concluded last week with the both the Blues and Crusaders doing what was expected of them if the selections and standings in the Rat Race is anything to go by, with the majority of players scoring 4 points for the Round.

As always, Ollie is on form and leads the pack by a single point.

This week sees the semi-finals taking place and if comments and predictions are anything to go by, the results are not as clear cut as they would have been last week.

Both games will be played on Saturday, but I would not suggest leaving your picks for the last minute!

Good luck boys and girls, and remember to get those picks in!

Standings after week 1 of the play-off’s:

Morné 5
Ollie_ Shark Attack 5
Asteroth’s Limping Lions 4

    Admins,

    I might have a problem getting my prediction in for the final as I will be on holiday in France.

    Can I email/text my prediction to somebody or must it go in via the website?

    I don’t know who to pick. And as Morne has so eloquently pointed out – you screw up and, then chances are, you are out of the race!

    Oh well……..as a wise man once said: “A FAINT HEART NEVER WON A FAT TART!”

    Good luck to all you Rats and to the Stormers!!!!!!

    HOWEVER – not sure it is a good thing :roll: :?

    We’re going to the Loire valley, a couple of km’s from Tour. Next visit is probably going to be Denmark though.

    Internet connection definitely won’t be good for me, not with my folks from SA and wife being along. :?

    Better not let Aldo see that… according to him only Lions supporters in South Africa will be supporting the Stormers on Saturday and the Bulls are just dikbek not supporting anyone because their team got knocked out…

    I am dikbek that my team got knocked out, but that doesn’t mean I don’t support the other SA teams!!!! As long as SA win it – I’m happy. Would have liked it to be the Bulls – but you can’t win all the time.

    As the majority of fans in SA feel no doubt… for me it has become second nature to transfer loyalty at the end of regular season…

    I think this is the first time SA’s hopes were solely dependent on the Stormers since… 2004 or someting???

    Morne

    What about 1999?

    But yes it is the first time since 2004 that only the Stormers represent us in the play off phase… actually… one could say the Sharks “represented” us too… but that would be embarrassing…

    Res van ons week is sonskyn.
    Maar dit raak lekker koud
    net voor die son sak.

    Moet nog baie reent kry, ons
    damme is nog laagste in 5 jaar.
    En die mensemassa hou net aan

    Teen 2020 gaan daar water tekorte in SA wees en teen 2030 orals op Aarde…

    Die Kanadese het ‘n studie publiseer oor hoe cool en gemeng die Aarde se gelukkige multikulturele mensdom gaan wees teen 2050 maar heeltemaal vergeet dat Aardverwarming en samehangend daarmee voedsel en veral water tekorte gaan beteken dat daar miskien nie so mengelmoes gaan wees nie want daar gaan heelwat minder van ons wees… hulle voorspelling MBT India is veral dom want India se water is oor besoedeld en hulle gebruik slegs boorgat water wat hulle ontgin teen so ‘n mate dat hulle dit gaan opgebruik teen 2020-2025 en die pas waarteen hulle die water ontgin beteken dat hulle bewerkbare grond al hoe meer sout raak en dus ook nie die gewasse sal kan onderhou nie so die idee dat India die grootste bevolking gaan wees is miskien iets wat nie met werklikheid tred hou nie… mens kan vir ‘n paar maande soinder kos, maar niks meer as 72 uur sonder water…

    En die wat geredeneer is die witman sal voorsien,
    is verby.
    Die bal is nou in die aanslaan-, wegskop- en aflaasbaan.
    Geld vir rioolpompe word vir BMw’s gebruik.

    En die baas van die rioolplaas se enigste ondervinding
    is dat hy die nursies help pispotte uitgooi het in
    sy hospitaaljaar.
    Of in die ou dae die nagvullis verwyder het op die
    47/ELEVEN roete.

    EN hy het ook maar ‘n lang extended family wat hy moet voer met die geld wat so wegraak wegraak.

    Sien vanaand ‘n stukkie van Idols – mense watwerklik glo hulle kan sing
    So sit daar ‘n spul in die regering wat ewe vas glo hulle
    an ‘n moderne land bedryf

    Ek kan nie uitewerk wie hul name die gatste maak nie, maar hoog op my lys is al die lofredes vir Kader Asmak watdie chaotiese fokop in onderwys ingelui het – teen al die waarskuwing in: ‘n komsep van OBE wat nie eens in eerstewêreld lande gewerk het nie. En hy sluit kolleges, sodat daar nou tekorte is.

    En Jan-Jan Joubert in Rapport is die enigste een met die
    gusts om ook sy fokops aant te haal – vir die res was hy
    ‘n heilige net so ‘n halwe tree agter Mandela, wat sy gesig nou op al SAL se vliegtuige geen kry.

    Kan dit dit nou oorvertel?
