The rugby-mad boys of the Newshub office are not impressed a 'soccer guy' is heading the field, after week one of the Super Rugby tipping comp.
Sport presenter - and diehard Manchester United fanboy - Andrew Gourdie had a great opening weekend, picking two from three. His only downfall was the Chiefs capitulation against the Highlanders.
Pre-season favourite Ross Karl flexed his muscles, matching Gourdie and looked good for top spot, until Bernard Foley missed a sitter to cost him a perfect week-one record and a bonus point.
The self-professed 'best-looking wannabe weatherman' Ollie Ritchie had a solid first week. Another victim of Foley's inability to kick straight, Ritchie went two-for-two himself, but his love for the Crusaders cost him dearly. They were never going to beat the Blues 13-plus.
John Day could only pick the Crusaders vs Blues result correctly, meaning the 'rugby bible' has a bit of work to do this weekend.
And Kristina Eddy's gameplan is working perfectly - struggle early, only to make a Usain Bolt-like finish down the final stretch to stun the boys.
Four games on deck this week, providing a real opportunity for one of our punters to show their true tipping credentials.
The rules are simple:
Pick the winner and margin of any Super Rugby game involving a New Zealand franchise, with points awarded in the following manner:
Pick the winner and margin (13-plus or 12-under) = three points.
Pick the winner only = one point.
Pick all results correctly including margin: one bonus point.
Super Rugby week two:
Highlanders vs Reds, Crusaders vs Hurricanes, Chiefs vs Brumbies, Blues vs Sharks
*Margin is based on the classic 12-under or 13-plus format.
