Tri-Nations Rat Race now OPEN!

RuggaWorld’s Tri-Nations 2011 Rat Race competition is now open!

Quick on the heels of our very successful Super Rugby Rat Race competition, comes our very first Tri-Nations Rat Race!  This is sort of a dry-run for what we can expect come the Rugby World Cup later this year where there will be no holding back folks!

Dry-run or not, we will still be giving away a prize at the end of the Tri-Nations for the top performer.  It is a very condensed Tri-Nations this year (6 matches only) since it is in a World Cup year, so only one prize up for grabs this time around (we are saving the rest for the Rugby World Cup)!

Up for grabs is a very snazzy Mini-DVR camera to the person who will top the log at the end of the Tri-Nations – below is a picture with more details and specs to follow later on.

Rules are simple, if you are new to RuggaWorld and the Rat Race, please note that you have to register in order to make picks for the competition.

Follow the menu’s on top to register now.  Please note, we need a first name and surname (this will not be displayed to anyone) otherwise we will not approve the application (we want to get rid of spammers and bots).

If you want an overview on the competition itself and how points are awarded, CLICK HERE.

Also note, prize will only be shipped inside the borders of SA on our costs. Prize will only be shipped at the conclusion of the Tri-Nations.

First test is this weekend in Sydney folks, so best get your picks in NOW!

You will note under the Tri-Nations menu at the top of our screen, you will find fixtures, logs and the team sheets for the week.

Get picking folks, and good luck to all!!!

    I have actually mounted one on the forehead of a flyhalf to see if I can pick up where he looks when playing

    P.S. Note I very specifically said head mounted work, not head work :twisted:

    Nope, because the Rat Race is similar to SuperBru, so 3N is here – we do however have a CC SuperBru pool (click on the SB icon on the right sidebar at the bottom of the page) where we also give away one of these cameras!

    That was the rule for the Super Rugby comp too you monkey!

    But since you and Ollie are very special members, we can organise something.

    You must let me know what you plan to do given your comments before you went on leave…

    That is very generous of you mate – it means the Stormers shades goes to Methos???

    Hahaha, the guy will be stoked! But I will confirm tomorrow quickly first – saw he and Deon was on the same points.

    I will communicate with you to get the Bok shades off to you!

    2nd was Namboer, Methos and Deon all on the same points IIRC.
    Namboer won the HDD, Deon is a Reds fan so he is disqualified :soek: that leaves Methos laughawie:


    I lost my Shades on the mountain yesterday :bangheadt: so the Bok shades come in handy :wave:

    from SB experience, 3N is my worst comp :?

    I either write off the Bokke then they win or blindly support them and they lose :censored:

    Me too. I have reached a point where I don’t play 3N superbru anymore as I get around 20% for it.

    Will still play Rat Race though

    Dém, kon gedoen het met ‘n ou los gelukkie ( NB. note spelling, same case as Ollie_ Shark Attack @ 2:17 pm: ! :twisted: )

    But fair is fair, so I’ll just have to whallop JT in the 3N RR – game on! :boxing:
    Good work for giving the Stormers Oakley to someone else, very generous – also sure Methos will appreciate it.

    To confirm – if I was playing S15 RR I don’t need to register again?

    Hi Guys

    Just saw the posts now – are you guys serious or are you guys joking?

    If you are serious – well, you know that bit where small dogs pee themselves when they get exited? Think I did that a wee bit of that now!

    I signed with a new club and will be moving at the end of this month so don’t have an address per se at the moment but will let you guys know ASAP – unless you are joking of course – than a black curse on all of you!!! ;)

    Will be moving to Provence – and play at a higher level – in green as well!
