Gameweek 15 results are in - and here they are all the match scores:

Laroche Lions 35 - 51 Bozo's Ballers
MANS 38 - 30 Bon Vivant
Blanks United 55 - 51 Queens Park Raisins
Tranquilo 57 - 36 Aldinga Allstars
Minto FC 36 - 39 Fibro's
Benzeman da Tiger 33 - 59 Beijing Town

And the table looks like this after gameweek 15:

Rank Team & Manager Wins Draws Losses Score Pts
1 Minto FC

12 0 3 782 36
2 Blanks United
11 0 4 854 33
3 MANS
10 0 5 805 30
4 Bon Vivant

8 0 7 772 24
5 Benzeman da Tiger

8 0 7 747 24
6 Tranquilo

7 0 8 819 21
7 Laroche Lions

6 0 9 759 18
8 Aldinga Allstars
6 0 9 728 18
9 Queens Park Raisins

6 0 9 727 18
10 Beijing Town

5 1 9 752 16
11 Fibro's

5 1 9 731 16
12 Bozo's Ballers

5 0 10 730 15


This game week proved how close our league is with some lower placed teams getting their own back on teams standing higher on the ladder.

Bozo’s Ballers (Bozo97) still maintains 12 place, albeit after beating ladder mid-placed Laroche Lions (tiger_one), 51-36. And Fibro’s (851) accounted for league leader Minto FC (Harvey) in the round’s closest result, 39-36. Minto FC (Harvey) still stands top of the league but the closing pack is nudging a tad closer. Blanks United (wt00) , Tranquilo (Dazza-96), MANS (swag tiger) and Beijing Town (tba) each had wins too.

Still there was no result that has defined where this league will go, as we approach the December matches and trade period just around the corner in the new year.

These games are , week in, week out verging on crazy, so unpredictable are the results. And our league managers are really up there with the better results of the overall world participants, so great work everyone!

Remembering that the comp goes for 38 gameweeks in total; so heaps of ups and downs to go for all of us. Comparisons-wise, there are now all up 5,481,047 fantasy players in this comp world-wide.
Congrats therefore to everyone - just keep it up!

And now for the best part: we each get to do it all over again effective next gameweek – which will be tonight, 9 December at 11.30pm, local Sydney time.

Just try to remember, the big thing is to try and get your team research done reasonably early, with transfers etc done before the first game of every round to get the best chance of more points.

Good Luck to everyone in your trades (or not!).

The Christmas period is fast approaching and, for some of our league’s teams, presents have started to appear, all on the backs of EPL’s managers who decide who/when to rest players between Champions League games and into the Premier League comp.
And all that makes our fantasy comp just that harder to work through.

Which means certain teams need to take a bow – because these teams are doing so well in this juggling period of the comp.
So well done to: Laroche Lions (tiger_one), Blanks United (wt00) , Tranquilo (Dazza-96), Queens Park Raisins (Marshall_magic), Aldinga Allstars (JRD), and Fibro’s (851) – all winning their respective games in a series of quite close results.

Still there was no result that has defined where this league will go, as we approach the December matches and trade period just around the corner in the new year.

These games are , week in, week out verging on crazy, so unpredictable are the results. And our league managers are really up there with the better results of the overall world participants, so great work everyone!

Remembering that the comp goes for 38 gameweeks in total; so heaps of ups and downs to go for all of us. Comparisons-wise, there are now all up 5,525,915 fantasy players in this comp world-wide.
Congrats therefore to everyone - just keep it up!

And now for the best part: we each get to do it all over again effective next gameweek – which will be tonight, 16 December at 11.30pm, local Sydney time.

Just try to remember, the big thing is to try and get your team research done reasonably early, with transfers etc done before the first game of every round to get the best chance of more points.

Taking in the games played over the Christmas period, our Wests Tigers league table going into gameweek 23 reads as follows:

Rank Team & Manager Wins Draws Losses Score Pts
1 Blanks United
16 0 6 1297 48
2 Minto FC

14 0 8 1106 42
3 MANS

12 0 10 1188 36
4 Aldinga Allstars

12 0 10 1115 36
5 Tranquilo

11 0 11 1208 33
6 Benzeman da Tiger

11 0 11 1150 33
7 Bon Vivant

11 0 11 1135 33
8 Fibro's

10 1 11 1146 31
9 Laroche Lions

10 0 12 1125 30
10 Queens Park Raisins

9 0 13 1056 27
11 Bozo's Ballers

8 0 14 1104 24
12 Beijing Town

7 1 14 1067 22


Blanks United (wt00), Minto FC (Harvey) and MANS (swag tiger) remain out in front in the top 3 spots.

Aldinga Allstars (JRD) and Tranquilo (dazz-96) are making moves up the league into clear 4th and 5th places respectively.
Fibro’s (851) and Queens Park Raisins (Marshall Magic) are each making moves upward in the league; which then means Benzeman da Tiger (WestsBen Tigers) , Bon Vivant (mrs tiger_one) , Laroche Lions (tiger_one) and Bozo’s Ballers (Bozo97) are dropping spots.

And what does that mean? Well, as the comp now has turned the corner with 14 rounds to go, it means everyone is still in the comp with a shot but it’s always better to be moving with momentum forward as opposed to the alternative.

So we all should be looking to make the best of the post Christmas team selections, where real managers are getting to the pointy end of all the comps, where soon the FA cup and Champions league distractions to EPL games will disappear and hopefully, there gets a bit more consistency in team selections.
Still, these game results are , week in, week out verging on crazy, so unpredictable are the results. And our league managers are really up there with the better results of the overall world participants, so great work everyone!

Remembering that the comp goes for 38 gameweeks in total; so heaps of ups and downs to go for all of us. Comparisons-wise, there are now all up 5,671,214 fantasy players in this comp world-wide.
Congrats therefore to everyone - just keep it up!

And now for the best part: we each get to do it all over again effective each new gameweek.

Just try to remember, the big thing is to try and get your team research done reasonably early, with transfers etc done before the first game of every round to get the best chance of more points.
Good Luck to everyone in your trades (or not!).

I think you should focus on your BBL fantasy first!

In your most recent match against me, you scored a grand total of 26 points...

WOW!! This week’s results have good news and good news!

First off, the league’s top places are still the same.

But in equally positive news, our league now has 4 teams who are in equal positions on the table, in equal 3rd place, if you like. Now that is interesting, being so close and still with a lot of games to go.

And even all the other teams are close enough to also fit in the picture as we leave the Christmas period behind.
So all this means is that everyone has a shot – so just go for it!

Still, results are verging on crazy, so unpredictable are the results. And our league managers are really up there with the better results of the overall world participants, so great work everyone!

Remembering that the comp goes for 38 gameweeks in total; so heaps of ups and downs to go for all of us. Comparisons-wise, there are now all up 5,695,857 fantasy players in this comp world-wide.
Congrats therefore to everyone - just keep it up!

It’s been Gameweek 23 since there’s been a report on this league and so much has happened, like:

Gameweek 24 results were pretty close scores across the park, with Queens Patk Raisins being the highest individual team score that round (and giving some hints as to what was to follow).

Gameweek 25 was remarkable in that we had 2 (yes 2!!) absolute draws where Fibro’s and Benzaman da Tiger scored 64 each, while Bozo’s Ballers and MANS played out a 65 all tie as well!

Gameweek 26 – again the scores were pretty even with MANS beating Bon Vivant in the closest result by a solitary single point!

Gameweek 27 was one for the record books! Beijing Town defeated Aldinga Allstars by an amazing score of 134 to 67!! (Now 67 is not too shabby, but 134??? WOW!!

Gameweek 28 again saw relatively close results with MANS beating Laroche Lions by the single point (57-56) and Alldinga Allstars came back with a single point victory over Benzaman da Tiger 36-35.

Gameweek 29 saw tight games where Laroche Lions and Queens Park Raisins top scored with 63 points in their respective matches over Aldinga Allstars and Fibro’s.

Gameweek 30 was a round where most games had low scores, but Queens Park Raisins was out in front on a round high 68, followed by Tranquilo on 58 – after that all pretty tight results.

Gameweek 31 saw some definitive high scores in some lop sided results, where Queens Park Raisins had the round high win over Laroche Lions 102-67; Bon Vivant had a decisive win over Aldinga Allstars 79-21; Blamks United had a biggie over Benzaman da Tiger 82-33; Minto FC came over the top to account for Tranquilo 86-61; Fibro’s won well over Bozo’s Ballers 75-31; but in a remarkable result, MANS won 61-3 over Beijing Town.

And that means that our Wests Tigers Forum league table after Gameweek 31 looks like this:
ank Team & Manager Wins Draws Losses Score Pts
1 Blanks United
23 0 8 1850 69
2 Minto FC

19 0 12 1608 57
3 MANS

18 1 12 1697 55
4 Queens Park Raisins

16 0 15 1638 48
5 Fibro's

15 2 14 1678 47
6 Tranquilo

15 0 16 1698 45
7 Bon Vivant

15 0 16 1632 45
8 Benzeman da Tiger

14 1 16 1605 43
9 Laroche Lions

14 0 17 1626 42
10 Aldinga Allstars

13 0 18 1509 39
11 Bozo's Ballers

12 1 18 1600 37
12 Beijing Town

9 1 21 1487 28

With still 5 rounds to go (and maybe some selections chips and wildcards to go!! – Hint! Hint!), Blanks United looks solid out in front on 69 points; although Minto and MANS arte leading the following pack with oodles of unknowns still to unfold!

Remembering that the comp goes for 38 Gameweeks in total; so heaps of ups and downs (aka FUN!) to go for all of us.
Comparisons-wise, there are now all up 5,858,386 fantasy players in this comp world-wide.
Congrats therefore to everyone, look how good we’re measuring up - just keep it up!

Just try to remember, the big thing is to try and get your team research done reasonably early, with transfers etc done before the first game of every round to get the best chance of more points.

Good Luck to everyone in your trades (or not!).
