Well done to Rick Page for sneaking the Yellow Cap (7 from 7 with 6 margin points!) in the Front Row Grunt SuperBru pool, but it’s still Brendan Wainwright who maintains a pretty tight grip on that top position on the log … My 6 from 7 moves me up 40 places to 281 out of 568 troops …

  1. The only thing I saw was SACS 21 Bishops 8…

    • Thought that might catch your eye. They took 50 from Gym, and got beaten by Drodsty … Even a blind squirrel gets an acorn every now and then :)

  2. Hi Tank, I seem to recall you mooted an alternative log in a previous blog post? Well I was gatvol of the Bulls and Sharks even being mentioned in the same breath as the Stormers and came up with the following:
    1.Stormers 30. pd74
    2.Chiefs 27. 77
    3.Brumbies 21. 65 (they would be 6th in a real log!)

    5.Crusaders 24. 89
    6.Highlanders 24. 12

    • Thanks Gerhard … Would this be using only their games against foreign teams?

      • Hi Tank,
        No, sorry, I should’ve explained.
        3 for a win, 1 for a draw, 0 for a loss. No bonus points. If there’s a tie then points (goal) difference matters. Just like the Premiership. Therefore Stormers 10 wins = 30 points, etc.
