f the Round

We are now down to the final stage of the tournament, and what a tournament it has been. The supposed lesser nations have finally grown into genuine threats to the old guard - witness Argentina's performance and Fiji's brave fight against the South African's. The quarter finals threw up some massive results, with the two behemoths of world rugby, Australia and New Zealand, unexpectedly sent packing by England and France respectively. At the top of the table Tom Weir has now stretched his lead and has a stunning 544 points - can anyone stop him? We are down to the 6th and final round of games, and a last chance for you to win a case of Mont Tauch wine. Enter now at www.offlicencenews.co.uk/fantasyrugby

Manager of the ROUND

The Round 5 winner is Paul

Stephens, from Bargain Box in Cheshire, whose team have won this round of games at a canter. This was based on his Tri Nations players from NZ, Australia and South Africa, but with only one of those nations left in the tournament, Paul may have to readjust his pack and bring in some try-scoring back division to get himself up the overall leader board. Paul has wisely installed Janie Du Preez and Bryan Habana as part of his SA contingent and will look to bring in some France and England players for the final round of games.

The team:

1 J Smith SA, 2 J Bonnaire FRA,

3 A Hogg SCO, 4 T Dusautoir FRA, 5 M Durand ARG, 6 S Taylor SCO, 7 JM Fernandez Lobbe ARG, 8 G Smith AUS, 9 F du Preez SA,

10 J Wilkinson ENG, 11 Y Jauzion FRA,

12 L Tuqiri AUS, 13 J Rokocoko NZ,

14 B Habana SA, 15 D Howlett NZ

COMMENT

Welcoming the wine rookie

It’s all true. Wine writers loaf around in a state of partial inebriation and partial undress, bitching about having to taste free wine all day and using recondite words like malolactic, terroir and recondite.
