Default Rugby World Cup France '07 Prediction Game

Here's a bit of fun for everybody and a bit of inter-board competition. Absolutely no knowledge of rugby is necessary (although it stands to reason that a basic idea of the strengths of the teams would help) and it should be fun.

Quite simply, on a week by week basis you will be asked to predict the winners, score and winning margin of each game. If you think it will be a draw - for those with little knowledge, draws are not as regular an occurance in Rugby as they are in Football - then predict the draw, the score and the winning margin would of course be 0.

Scoring would be marked thus:

Correct Winning Team or Draw = 5pts
Correct Result Score = 10pts
Correct Winning Margin = 7pts



So for example:

Eng v Fra .... = ENG WIN .... 22-18....MARGIN 4pts

If the actual result was indeed that of the example you would win 22pts = 5pts for prediciting Eng win, 7pts for predicting the 4 point winning margin and 10pts for correctly prediciting the result score.

If the final score was England win 26-22, then you score 12pts (5pts for Eng Win, 7pts for Margin).
If the score was France win 26-22, then you can still score 7pts for correctly predicting the winning margin despite getting the score and winner wrong.

There a lots of ways to score points so the playing field is levelled out a bit. For Purists, it may be too simplified but it gives those not up on rugby a chance to score points and get on the leader board.

Below are the first week's games. Either copy and paste or simply quote to enter your predictions in reply to this thread. For those new to the sport, one, two and four points are impossible to score in rugby.

Have fun and we'll see who's King (or Queen) of the Board. After the first week I'll post league tables to show who's leading in each section of the board, which section of the board is doing the best and who's the overall leader.
