A quick announcement regarding the Rugby Championship and the Currie Cup.
Due to work and other commitments Shaun, Nick and I are going to be unable to continue to provide the level of service you have become accustomed to from Fantasy Rugby Scout over the past couple of years.
We have decided to not follow the Rugby Championship & Currie Cup competitions this year and will reassess how to continue with the site in the new year.
In the mean time if you are playing the Rugby Championship game Andrew has made a league on FOX:
It’s Super Rugby Final time and the 2 best teams have made it, that’s obvious. The Crusaders smashed Jake White’s Sharks while the Tahs bashed the Brumbies! The battle of the top dogs has more promises than a presidential election campaign… Dagg vs Folau, Slade/Carter vs Foley/Beale, McCaw vs Hooper and Australia vs New Zealand! In all honesty, this is a Super 15 Final that really is a sneak peak at the looming Rugby Championship.
The 2nd semi-final of the weekend serves up an all-Aussie dish between the round robin winners and the guys who were hoping to be the round robin winners! The Tahs will be hosting the Brumbies in Sydney and will be looking to build on their 7-match unbeaten run into the playoffs! The Brumbies on the other hand will be seeking some revenge for the 39-8 drubbing at the hands of their hosts which took place less than a month ago. They looked pretty fired up when they handled the Chiefs but will they have enough fire to burn down the Tahs in their own fortress? Well, we’re sure to be finding that out very soon.
It’s semi-final time! Having barged over the Highlanders, the Sharks travel to the land of the Long White Cloud looking to beat the mighty Crusaders in their own backyard for the second time this season. Both teams are very strong but one is well-rested while the other has just gone through a bruiser and one heck of a plane trip. It’s advantage Crusaders but the Sharks are still in it to win it!
This will not be the 1st time these 2 sides have locked horns in 2014 but it will most certainly be the last. The Brumbies get the benefit of running out on home turf on Saturday by virtue of their 4th place log position at the end of the round robin phase. But for the Chiefs, it’s time to saddle up the ponies and take a trip on over to the land of kangaroos and koala bears. When the dust settles, one will be marching on to the semi-finals while the other will swallow sadness and reminisce what could’ve been.
The home team will be expecting a bid day at the office from their man at the back…
The Sharks welcome the Highlanders to the Shark tank after having been kicked and licked 34-18 earlier in the Season. The locals at Kings Park will want revenge on the tourists who showed no fear on their last visit to the Shark cage.
Pat Lambie is back for the Sharks (albeit on the bench):
We have reached the final round of the competition before the playoffs!
We can expect the teams that have no chance of qualifying to throw the ball around this weekend ultimately meaning there are points to be made in those specific games. I am tipping the Lions vs Cheetahs and Bulls vs Rebels as the two games which will hold the most Fantasy points for this round. I expect this weekend to be really exciting!
It’s the last round before the playoffs and there are just 9 teams still in it to win it. In the interests of providing some sort of (ill conceived) advice to our millions of fans, we are only going to be featuring 1 article this week due to staff shortages – some guys think that going to Spain is more important than Super Rugby. Preposterous!
