Superbru

All hail Wart, Sikzel and Georgeous

The Superbru standings for Rugby World Cup 2019 are now final, and it's time to congratulate your pool champions and make gentle, understanding fun of your wooden spooners.

The Springboks triumphed on the pitches of Japan, but who owned the virtual fields of cyberspace?

Rugby World Cup Predictor

13,307,549 picks were made in the Predictor game and navigating his way to the top of the pile to become our Global Champion with 59.5 points* was Wart (Stuart Burgess), a Uruguay-supporting, 10,000-cap Superbru veteran from the UK. Second place went to Ant Whitfield and third to Nadz (Nadia Nagel), both from South Africa. Well done all!

* Remember the are no Bonus Points on the Global Leaderboard. You might have a higher total in a pool thanks to Bonus Points.

Top pool

In a lesser-known Superbru feature, we track the average performance of pools with 5 or more players. Our best-performing pool was the Pieterse Peanuts, run by the valiant captain HeWho. The Peanuts racked up an average score of 52.70 points, just edging Potch / Pretoria (captained by Hannaspret) on 52.50. To the Peanuts (Christo, Darren, Melissa, Jason and Jaco), well done!

Top fans

We also keep an eye on the performance of each team's fans, as dictated by average scores in the team fan pools. South African fans topped the tournament with 41.20 points (though if we're honest, a lot of that will be down to heart-over-head picks for the final). Namibia and Georgia took silver and gold, followed by New Zealand, Australia and England.



Rugby World Cup Fantasy

Topping the Global Leaderboard in our fantasy game with 1,661.5 points, 46 tries and nearly a 100 point lead over the next best competitor was Sikzel (Sikelela Zelanga) from South Africa. Excellent work on this spectacular performance, Sikzel! The fantasy silver went to Dario Ciacchini from Italy and bronze to Courtney Walton, an English fan based in Australia.



Rugby World Cup Daily Fantasy

In our quick-fire Daily Fantasy game, Georgeous (Jorge Garcia from Spain) topped the standings with 2,050 and 69 tries. Jorge narrowly beat Joe Hiegel from the US, a Superbru stalwart approaching his 20,000th cap, and Basman (Tony Hingin) from New Zealand.

Well done to all our global champions, who are global in another sense, being spread right across the planet!



Thank you / Arigato gozaimasu

Superbru is many things, but most important of all is its ability to bring people together and add a little something extra to the way they follow sport. There's that sense of elation at topping a pool, but there are also amusing micro-moments like egging Fiji on for just one more try against Georgia so that you will win the Bonus Point. All of this depends on you, the folks taking part in the game, so from all of us here at Superbru HQ, a big thank you for participating. We hope that in some small way we made RWC even more enjoyable for you, whether or not your team triumphed on the field. Arigato gozaimasu to you all.

Thanks General, for running the fantastic Rugby World Cup. I am a a newbie, having only joined on Jul 1st 2019, but love the tournaments and running pools, while slowly building my club. Cheers

General, Why do you continue to state "heart over head" support for Springboks in the final against England? England had one very good game in their semi-final against New Zealand. The Boks played a brilliant final in The Final and deserved it! Just because the bookies picked England does not mean we picked only with our hearts!

Yeah I tried picking with my heart but I got a sore left nipple by the knock-out stages, so switched back to my index finger.

But yeah in my mind the Final was 50/50 as we saw in Wellington twice what a fired up Boks are capable of. Off comes the Band-Aid...OUCH! 4 Nov 19:59

I agree with Mike's Marauders. I picked New Zealand with my head and for the final I switched to England based on how the finalists played in the semi-final. Many, many others saw things differently through their heads and backed South Africa. Heads usually outnumber hearts in competitions such as this. 4 Nov 20:35

Thanks General. This tourney has gotten me back in to Superbru. I'm at risk of being addicted again. My biggest pick - England over New Zealand. My brain fart pick - Canada over Italy. Roll on Super Rugby.

Love it ,you tend to be must be involved with all the games. In 1995's tournament I had tickets for a game In Rustenburg, Ivory Coast vs X, could not give them away, today with Superbru every game is important. Give the overall winner a Supercap with 1995 World Cup winner engraved, one of a kind. same with a superspoon, image making a potjie with that spoon, These will become collectables.
Keep on going,

Well played by all nine Medallists especially WART who now holds the record for beating the most Brus! Over 330k!!! But I measure true picking skill by backing it up with consistency year on year. We had MANY in the Global Top 10s for whom this was only their 5th or even FIRST ever contest. The bigger the playership the bigger the Beginner's Luck chances are it seems?
