No thread exists so I thought I'd start one. My current observation: our (BULLS) first 4 games are derbies. All other BIG teams enjoy play-play conflicts in the first few weeks. And this sucks. Why? Because: (Week 1) Durban and (Week 3) Newlands are the two away games I REALLY REALLY wanted to make the trek to watch but the earliest I can go anywhere is mid-August.

Yeah I think the Lions might just be a huge force in this year's CC as they are not losing anyone to the boks :p:D

Now remember to join our Pool too.
Thanks. Already have quite a few MyBB guys on there.

LOL i still have my doubts :D

Lions should score a few upsets this year but I cannot see them making the semis on current form.

Bulls vs Cheetahs
WP vs Sharks

Those are my predictions.

Thanks guys. Looking forward to see how we all do.
Just a heads up. There will be prizes for the top finishers, so pick with your head and not your heart.

Back to the topic.

Keegan Daniel will captain the Sharks this year.
Andries Strauss the Cheetahs.
Gary Botha the Blue Bulls
and Dewaldt Duvenhage/Duane Vermeulen the WP.
Not sure about the Lions and other teams yet, or haven't actually bothered to find out. :eek:

Has Gary Botha now been officially named as captain?
Shame not to have Struass on tour but sure the cheetahs are happy to have him for the CC.

With so many players if you can grab a Bonus point for closest to the score and not have to share you are good :p

Yeah. With such big pools it really takes more than luck to end top. You will need to pick right to stay top.

@Devill. Botha will only be officially named captain later today at a press conference, but we can reliably confirm it will be him.
