Rugby-Talk LogoSix players in this competition were eliminated this weekend. The Lions proved to be their downfall and the way the Lions team came back from their year in the cold will cost many a player here their life.

The Lions win took out five players. Timothy Bornman, Cheetah4eva, OzzieKiwi, Winfreux and GoBokke&Ireland. They drop out because the Lions took the scalp of New Zealand hopefulls, the Blues. By winning, the Lions made sure they cannot lose more than 13 games. They three players predicted 14 losses. With Winfreux and GoBokke&Ireland, their scenarios are not possible anymore either.

Another Lions win will see 6 more players dropping out.

Loosehead was in fact the first casualty of the weekend. He predicted that the Stormers will lose only two games. They lost their third against the rampant Chiefs. Only a very brave person would have bet on the Stormers to win.

Predicting how many games each of the South African Conference franchises will lose, is the object of this game. After 5 Rounds of Super Rugby in 2014 we have 19 players left in the field. We started with 23 players.

Each franchise plays 16 games in the regular season, 8 against fellow South African Conference sides (home and away) and 8 against the sides in the other 2 Conferences.

Although the rules stay the same, we will use this first ever competition to develop and fine tune a future competition which will keep early drop-outs interested for longer. If you have any suggestions please post it in the comments section of this article.
