    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Yup good suggestion that, have also added the starting date so people are aware of when they need to get their tips in.

    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    A lot of games closer than generally predicted:

    New Zealand beat Tonga by 31
    Scotland beat Romania by 10
    Fiji beat Namibia by 24
    France beat Japan by 26
    England beat Argentina by 4
    Australia beat Italy by 26
    Ireland beat USA by 12
    South Africa beat Wales by 1

    No spot on predictions, but Hurricane was 1 out on France v Japan and Marcuss 1 out on Australia v Italy.

    Everyone got all 8 match results, which means 40 points and anyone who got 40 overall is generally a bit **** at this.

    Thought I'd be scoring closer to 40 TBH, seemed like I overestimated the margins of victory in almost every match.
