    Predictions for the Final

    One of the many perks of playing Superbru is once you have made your prediction, not only are you able to view the predictions of your fellow pool players, but you can see the overall predictions of all the players playing in the tournament.  Viewing the overall predictions of everyone playing in the tournament can […]

  • The William Webb Ellis Trophy 1/12/2008

    And then there were two…

    Thus the rugby world cup is drawing to to a close. As I am posting this, Australia is challenging Wales for the soon-to-be-forgotten title of Third at the cup. That’s worse than saying “from all who lost, I was the first”. This will be remembered as a slick, entertaining and mostly incident free world cup […]

    Richie McCaw Super Awesome Steal

    I found this clip on Rugbydump showing Richie McCaw stealing a ball from one of the Australians.  For those of you who watched the game last weekend will know immediately what steal I’m talking about. Richie McCaw can now be referred to as Super Richie McCaw!

  • Huh?

    Bryce Lawrence is getting mauled

    I am as upset about a terrible ref as anyone else, and it’s got to be said that Bryce Lawrence got the whole country united. United in hating him. Let’s not dwell too much on what he did wrong (long list…) or right (very short list). The most enjoyable part is the love being shown […]

    Let the Real Games Begin!

    So the pool stages of the Rugby World Cup are officially over and the real competition can start now. The minnow sides had their time to shine but sadly it was all for nothing with the top eight sides on the World rankings managing to either fly or scrape their way to the business end […]

    Dan Carter Out of Rugby World Cup 2011

    In what must be the biggest casualty of the Rugby World Cup 2011 thus far, Dan Carter has been ruled out of the rest of the tournament. The All Black talisman was today ruled out due to a severe groin injury that was described as a “freak” injury with Carter not having any previous groin […]

    Big weekend to decide the Rugby World Cup Pools (Including Superbru…)

    So you’ve been playing in our Superbru pool and so far its been pretty much plain sailing. Everyone is sitting on an almost 90% accuracy rate on their predictions with pool leader boards pretty much being decided on Margin Points and the occasional Bonus Point.  The only genuine upset was Ireland beating Australia. There was also been […]

    Springbok team to face Namibia

    The springbok team to face Namibia has been announced. P Divvy made 5 changes from the team that beat Fiji. I’m glad to see that he decided to rest a few players, I’m also glad that Chilliboy and Juan de Jongh are in the squad, but I would’ve preffered them to be in the starting […]

    Springboks vs Fiji Preview

    P divvy announced a strong team to face the “look like a lock, run like a wing” Fijians. Unlikely that the Boks will go down against them, but we said the same thing against Wales. A big surprise is Bakkies Lazarus Botha. Last week almost had his leg amputated and now he is in the […]
