    The Bunny has found a pretty decent lead, I think holding second will be a fair effort now!

    Scoring changes for knock-out stages

    You're all too keen!

    Right, to keep things fresh & interesting I'm going to introduce two new ways of scoring points. We're keeping the original method:

    Quote Originally Posted by BoyBrumby View Post

    Spot-on prediction: 10 points

    1-7 points out: 5 points

    8-14 points out: 3 points

    Correct outcome: 1 point

    NB: no points for incorrect tip, regardless of narrowness of result.
    But now I also want you to predict the total number of tries scored in each game (that's the tries scored by both teams combined) and the first try scorer too. Bonus points scored like so:

    Total number of tries correct: 5 points
    1 try out: 3 points
    2 tries out: 1 point

    First tryscorer correct: 5 points
    Predicted tryscorer scores a try that isn't the first try: 1 point


    So if you nail the correct outcome, points margin, first tryscorer & total number of tries you can get yourself 20 points. Fixtures:

    Saturday, 06 October 2007
    Australia v England
    New Zealand v France

    Sunday, 07 October 2007
    South Africa v Fiji
    Argentina v Scotland


    So for the first game, say you might go:

    Australia by 15
    First tryscorer: Mortlock
    Total number of tries: 6


    Stunningly simple.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
