Marc has his reasons and it's probably just that doing it manually feels like it's more 'your thing'.

I don't use superbru for the draft either, because working out all the points gives me a distraction from bleak reality for 20 minutes.

Pretty decent run this.
You'd get long odds on NZ by 63 exactly eh?

Especially when they went 63-0 up after 55 minutes and just sort of dicked around after that. I'm surprised I don't have the anti corruption people on me.

It's more not being aware of alternatives - I've done it manually the last couple of tournaments so it's not a big hassle to update.

Meh, you weren't even the only one to predict it.
