    I thought it might be a fun idea to create a Last Man Standing game before the debut of the new season. Some of you may have seen these types of games before.
    Rules

    - Each round of fixtures you pick a team that you think will win.

    - You can't choose any team that you have chosen in previous weeks.

    - If your team don't win then you are eliminated.

    We keep going until we have the last player left. (If nobody's teams win, all who were left in at that point roll over to the next week.)

    Here are the fixtures for the first round of games:


    Thurs
    St George Illawarra Dragons vs Brisbane Broncos

    Fri
    Newcastle Knights vs Manly Warringah Sea Eagles
    North Queensland Cowboys vs Cronulla Sutherland Sharks

    Sat
    Wests Tigers vs Sydney Roosters
    South Sydney Rabbitohs vs New Zealand Warriors
    Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs vs Melbourne Storm

    Sun
    Penrith Panthers vs Parramatta Eels
    Gold Coast Titans vs Canberra Raiders


    I'll get the ball rolling and the team I'll place my faith in to start with will be the Rabbitohs!

    Who will you choose? (P.S. Anyone who sees this thread after the Thurs/Fri game can still play but obviously you'd need to choose a team from a fixture that hasn't happened yet!)

    I'll go for the Raiders.

    Oh well, give me an easy life and a peaceful death.

    I'll take Rabbits to beat the Warriors - this is a class idea.

    Mighty Warriors not doing you any favours with 25 minutes left, tonking the Bunnies.

    For sure - Warriors were class - I'm out already lol!


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,594 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    I feel like I jinxed the Bunnies. :pac:

    Keen to see how Tom's pick gets on Sunday. I'm wishing I'd gone with the Raiders now!

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,992 ✭✭✭✭Tom Mann Centuria


    And they did. :pac:

    Thurs
    Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks vs St George-Illawarra Dragons

    This time I'm putting my faith in the Roosters!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,457 ✭✭✭Danick


    I'll take my own team the Cows to beat Broncos.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,992 ✭✭✭✭Tom Mann Centuria


    Storm then this time, to see if I can last more than one round.

    Oh well, give me an easy life and a peaceful death.

    No mate, work away. We all failed miserably in the first round so you're good to start from now as well.

    Oh well, give me an easy life and a peaceful death.

    Storm this week for me (thanks guys great idea)


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,594 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy

    Thank you Roosters.

    Think I jinxed the Cowboys lol

    You'll be needing the Storm to deliver or I pick up the win!

    Reckon you'll be okay though.

    Yeah, you have the rare honour of being only correct guess so far!

    Edit: Well at half-time, Storm doing a good job of continuing my poor start. Trail Tigers by 2 penalties.

    Oh well, give me an easy life and a peaceful death.



  • Registered Users Posts: 10,992 ✭✭✭✭Tom Mann Centuria


    Think I need to retire from this! All hail Mr.Nice Guy, by managing to correctly guess one result he sweeps to victory!

    Oh well, give me an easy life and a peaceful death.



  • Registered Users Posts: 45,594 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    I thought Storm winning was practically a shoe-in. Tigers doing very well at the minute.

    Last Man Standing II



    Right, I'm putting my title on the line as even with all the upsets of late we can surely drag this out a bit longer!

    All teams are once again available for your selection. Here are the fixtures:




    Thurs
    Melbourne Storm vs North Queensland Cowboys

    Fri
    Canterbury Bulldogs vs Penrith Panthers
    Wests Tigers vs Brisbane Broncos

    Sat
    Canberra Raiders vs New Zealand Warriors
    South Sydney Rabbitohs vs Manly Sea Eagles
    Parramatta Eels vs Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks

    Sun
    Gold Coast Titans vs St George-Illawarra Dragons
    Sydney Roosters vs Newcastle Knights




    I'm going to hope their good form continues as my pick will be the Tigers.

    I got knocked out this week - if we are starting over again then I'll pick Dragons.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,992 ✭✭✭✭Tom Mann Centuria


    I'll go Panthers this week. (I'm sure a shiver just went down Anthony Griffin's spine with that kiss of death from me picking them).

    Oh well, give me an easy life and a peaceful death.



  • Registered Users Posts: 784 ✭✭✭kirk buttercup


    Manly Please .


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,594 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy

    Ladies and Gentlemen, here is your winner. Dragons hammered the Titans. Congratulations Danick.

    It'd be nice if we get a winner who has to predict more than one game to be victorious next time. :pac:

  • Registered Users Posts: 784 ✭✭✭kirk buttercup
