The impact of COVID-19 on Superbru

As you are already aware, the coronavirus outbreak that has become a global pandemic is having a major impact on sport everywhere. Here at Superbru, our large list of tournaments cover many events all over the globe but a large majority of them are now being suspended or cancelled due to concerns about public health. Today's news that the Premier League (and all other top-level English football) has been suspended until April 3rd at the earliest is a significant example.

How we deal with it

All of our fixtures will be updated to reflect any date/time changes or marked as 'postponed' as soon as any official announcements are received. The situation is of course ever-changing and rescheduled dates for postponed matches are not always immediately known. As a result, you may see some funny fixture times such as some football rounds being pushed back a few months on Superbru with visible fixture dates not being legitimate. Such cases are merely our way of removing the matches from your dashboard so that you aren't receiving reminders etc. and so that they can be rescheduled for their valid dates as and when they are known.

Equally, if any tournaments end up being completely cancelled due to the outbreak and a lack of time to fulfil fixtures, said tournaments will also be closed on Superbru once official. In the majority of cases, the current pool standings would be taken as final in the event of a cancellation. However, if a tournament is cancelled in its very early stages and not enough of the event has been completed to provide valid standings at Superbru (such as the recent Players championship), we will cancel the tournament and consider it null and void.

Fantasy

As many of us have already experienced in the Six Nations, fantasy tournaments can be a little bit more complicated when fixtures are rescheduled/removed. When it comes to managing those tournaments, each of them are different and we will therefore be reviewing each situation we might face individually and striving to be as fair as we think we can be when it comes to editing transfer and team limits.

What are we going to do now!?

You won't be surprised to hear that we're all sports-mad here at Superbru HQ and so like all other brus we are not looking forward to a period of reduced action to watch and fewer picks to make. However, health is of course the priority and we're fortunate that we currently still have a few tournaments running!

If the tournament you play on Superbru is currently suspended, it's always worth considering trying out a new tournament or perhaps even a new sport if you're in need of a pick fix.

Our current most popular tournament, Super Rugby, remains ongoing though matches in Australia are expected to be played behind closed doors soon.

Rapid Rugby begins its first ever season as a unique tournament tomorrow!

The 2020 NRL season only started on Thursday meaning you can get involved in that Rugby League tipping tournament with only a couple of picks missed.

And for those of you who want to keep up some football predicting, Australia's A-League currently still has fixtures.

We wish you all good health and are extremely grateful for your continued support even when there isn't too much on the sporting calendar! The current absence of fixtures simply means there's a heavenly jam-packed schedule full of all of our favourite tournaments on the horizon and we can't wait to enjoy that with you.

Not a very intelligent comment. Missed the point of the suspended/cancelled events entirely. ????? 13 Mar 17:57

At a 3% mortality rate; out of 50 000 fans in a stadium, 1500 will die of coranavirus. It's not paranoia when the virus is going to reach you. Spanish flu infected 500 million people in 1918, killing 30 million. Coronavirus will probably infect over 90% of the planet in about 2 years. Hopefully, suitable antiviral medication is available within the next year.

On the other hand, it probably is safe to play matches behind closed doors, provided everyone's been tested. Until that's sorted, TV stakeholders will be exerting pressure. They need the matches to be aired. Loss of gate revenue will impact clubs badly, so special broadcasting deals will have to be made 13 Mar 20:03

Its unlikely to be as lethal as Spanish Flu Angus medicine has advanced 1000% but if precautions save one life its worth it. They are saying the spread is matching the very sophistocated 'computer modelling projections. That is, it is expected to reach peak exponential growth, i.e. doubling every few days then decline to manageable levels in a few weeks. So this is the crucial 'containment stage'. For Spanish Flu by contrast, the US Army sent 1000s of infected soldiers to France despite their holding camp in the US being an infection hot spot. The Doctors got over-ruled by the Generals! 13 Mar 20:17

Thanks jack but I belive. We gone lose all the sport in Europe for the next few weeks and more too come. I am just stressed what we gone do if we dont have superbru or fantasy football. Speak too the wife. I also see a lot off sport in south Africa getting out back for a few weeks .

The minute Liverpool hit a wobbly, they cancel the League until Alison gets back from injury.

If the Leagues don't recommence, they might have to scrap the season. Relegation/promotion is the major concern for the suits, with courtcases from affected Clubs quite likely. That would have a knock-on effect on the 20/21 season timetable, with perhaps 23 teams insisting on playing in the Prem. Simpler to scrub the season completely.

Leeds and Liverpool to lose out yet again?

Oh we have a couple of comedians! I make a simple offer of help and you guys try and turn it into a joke factory! For your information Red, Spanish Fly will be serving out a 14 day isolation period, and based on average game time, will probably miss the first 20,160 games, based on 30 second average game time, with 30 second intervals. Not sure of the average life span of the Fly, but that's got to put a dent in the final standings. 14 Mar 11:49

BREAKING NEWS: NZ PM has just announced everyone entering NZ from tomorrow will have to serve a 14 day isolation period. This has already led to the ODI series between Aus and NZ, being postponed, with NZ players returning home tonight. This will also have flow-on affects for the NRL with the Warriors having played in Newcastle today, forcing the ARL and NRL to hold a meeting tonight to decide on the future of the tournament, after previously saying it would continue to closed stadiums. The affects on Super Rugby will be devastating, unless an exception is made.

I would like to know why one player in the Fantacy pool received three "Auto replacements" and nobody else did ? One of the replacpents was for a Jaguare player yet the other two were for players that were rested. The three auto replaced players scored over 40 points for this player and resulted in him retaining second place in the pool and me 3rd. Very strange indeed ???
16 Mar 10:01
9,990 caps
Hey dugardy! Auto replacements occur if your 1st pick does not play AND your substitute in that position does play. Perhaps your subs also did not play? 16 Mar 10:49
9,941 caps
Thanks for the info, but there are no subs in Fantacy super rugby and I noticed that at least four of us picked the Jaguare lock and got a 0, but this one guy got the the Reds no 8 Mitchell as a replacement for the same lock and he scored 12,5 points. ( he was my other lock) Furthermore Nasirini who was rested and I had to drop from my squad (losing a transfer) was replaced by Noche on his same squad (notche was my transfer for Nasirini by the way). What pisses me off is that I drop to third and this guy goes to second and should be at least five points behind me. The third auto was Lumampe for Moroni (funnily enough also my transfer switch before the game) 16 Mar 18:58
9,990 caps
You have four loose-forwards in your squad, and select three in your starting line-up. The other one is your sub. I also had Naisarani on my bench. I didn't transfer him out because the Rebels are at home to the Sunwolves next. Took a chance that my three starters would remain fit. 16 Mar 21:38

Hi Everyone hope all of you are surviving the no sport whatsoever situation and that hopefully this virus can be kicked in the butt. I just want to raise a question regarding this matches called off etc...I play Fantasy sport and my question is towards the Super rugby fantasy. I transfer and pick my players by who is playing who and also the following weeks fixtures. I wait for starting lineups and don't just pick randomly. I also believe most people on superbru uses the same tactic, but then games get started and suddenly mid round games get cxd and so forth. Players that can be substituted in fantasy gets done etc and points gets sorted and we are done...... But how fair is that? non of the Bru's could see that coming and so my question and also and idea is the following:
Starting lineups gets posted by all teams so we know who would have played and who would not have that is easy but when a game gets cxd why can't you (Superbru) use an average to give the player a fantasy point? as
