Round 12 was another tough one, with two draws picked by just 1% of the community on Superbru, and I was on the wrong side of the key 50/50 clash, with the Brumbies beating the Blues in Canberra (41% picked that). My 4 out of 7 was right on the community
Round 11 went pretty well for my picks on Superbru, with 5 out of 6 correct, including the Stormers beating the Bulls, which was one of the two 'upsets' last weekend. I didn't have the Sharks beating the Waratahs, predicted by 18%, which was a big shock based on

My Superbru fortunes seem to be alternating each weekend, with a good round followed by a bad one. Round 6 saw a climb of nearly 27,000 places into the top 10% on Superbru, and I managed to beat the Superbru community, which managed an average of 2.95 correct picks
