    World Cup Tipping Competition

    It's back again, same rules as before:

    For getting a correct prediction you get an automatic 5 points, with up to 10 more points available for margin, on a sliding scale (so if you're spot on you get 10 points, but if you're 3 points out you get 7 points etc.)

    For example for England vs Fiji if I predict England to win by 25 points and they win by 27 points, I get 5 for the prediction and 8 for the margin.

    If you predict a margin of less than 10 points, then you can actually score points even if you get the prediction wrong. For example if you predict say Tonga to beat Georgia by 6 points and Georgia win by 3 points, you get 1.

    Deadline for each pick is when the game kicks off, but will be putting the fixtures up in blocks of 8 games - results may not come immediately (since I'm away a lot around the start of the Tournament) but will be done as and when I can.

    So the first games are (all times are UK times):

    Code:
    Fri Sept 18	20.00	A	England v Fiji
    Sat Sept 19	12.00	c	Tonga v Georgia
    Sat Sept 19	14.30	D	Ireland v Canada
    Sat Sept 19	16.45	B	South Africa v Japan
    Sat Sept 19	20.00	D	France v Italy
    Sun Sept 20	12.00	B	Samoa v USA
    Sun Sept 20	14.30	A	Wales v Uruguay
    Sun Sept 20	16.45	C	New Zealand v Argentina

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
