The thing I like about a 3.5-2.5 win counting as much as a 6.0-0.0 win is that it makes it a bigger team emphasis and also lets more people have their chance to be the hero.

Yes, Joe Awesome may have won every game 4-0, but in Round 3 it was Fred Average pulling out an unexpected draw at the end that got his team the 3.5-2.5 win, while in Round 5, Bob Nobody, who had lost every game to that point, got a fluke win that tied the round 3.0-3.0 and meant his team at least got a point.

Yeah, Joe Awesome did his job, but everyone remembers that it was Fred and Bob who “won” those rounds for the team.

But it was a made up example. Or are you talking about ASC1 when Rod was the hero with an unexpected win or draw against NSW?

Just looking at this again

If it had just been a 2-1-0 for teams wins

NSW - 8
VIC - 7 (more individual wins)
SA - 7 (the head to head v VIC)
WA - 5
Bar - 2
NZ - 1

The draw against Barbarians is what really cost the South Aussies

When is this from? The WA ASC or the Vic ASC?

The WA one.
