I don’t want to infringe on the lads doing the Fantasy League thing so I’ve started a thread for the June Internationals and the FIFA WC on Superbru.
FIFA FOOTBALL WORLD CUP 2010 ROUND ONE ROUND-UP
Forumosa Football Club results after round 1:
Jimipresley races to number one spot on the log and clinches the coveted Yellow Cap. I’m wallowing at 7th on the log…
FIFA FWC Results for Round 1:
South Africa did well to draw with Mexico and Australia’s man shaming at the hands of Deutschland was pretty much expected. I think the Poms can’t be too happy with the English performance against the USA, although Americans in SA are probably still drunk and recovering from the game. Much like half of South Africa after the opening game! Not much to say about the France vs Uruguay borefest, but the Argies did me proud as did Ghana (pity I didn’t pick them to win).
JUNE RUGBY INTERNATIONALS ROUND TWO ROUND-UP
Forumosa Rugby Club results after round 2:
Matchstick snatches the Yellow Cap from round one winner Kiki (my wife), moving into third on the log. Kiki gives up poll position to Lyndfield. Seems our low performers during the Super 14 are out for revenge in June and even here I’m in lowly 7th despite an 83.3% accuracy (only had the Argentina game wrong). The winners seem easy enough to pick, but the margins are proving our undoing or reasons for success in terms of the top 3.
June Internationals results of rounds 1 and 2:
Australia man shamed Fiji and South Africa edged out a plucky Welsh side in round 1. This weekend the All Blacks annihilated Ireland and made northern hemisphere rugby look like so much flotsam. IMO Australia were unlucky not to devastate England more with their young talented team, and England got off lightly with two penalty tries I don’t think they deserved (can we all say “Northern Hemisphere ref!”).
South Africa’s Springboks (World and Tri-Nations Champions) gave the French (Six Nations Champions) a lesson in rugby. Between the three Southern Giants we systematically mauled and man shamed the North once again.
The stand out surprise was Scotland’s shock win over a lack lustre Argentina side, that despite two tries just didn’t seem like they wanted to play on the day. Well done, Scotland.
Keep up the good picks, lads. These two comps are making for some exciting results in our two pools!
