    Rugby World Cup Tipping Comp

    I did consider setting a comp up on OzTips, but the site only allows for predictions of win, lose or draw &, as a lot of the games in the early stages are bound to be mismatches, I thought it'd be more interesting if we did in tipping in-thread.

    My proposal is this: we tip the winners and the margin of victory, with more points awarded depending on the closeness of the prediction to the actual result.

    As an example, the first game is France v Argentina. You predict: France by 10 points or however many you think they (or Argentina) will win by.

    Points awarded thusly:

    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.


    So blindling simple even a league fan could understand it. Fixtures for the first week:

    7 September:
    France v Argentina

    8 September:
    England v USA
    Australia v Japan
    New Zealand v Italy

    9 September:
    Ireland v Namibia
    Wales v Canada
    South Africa v Samoa
    Scotland v Portugal

    11 September:
    Argentina v Georgia

    12 September:
    Italy v Romania
    USA v Tonga
    Japan v Fiji


    All welcome, tip at your leisure.

    "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

    Do you wanna have a crack at the margins of victory too? Otherwise you're limiting the points you can score from each game to one.

    Another option is to use Telecomvirtualrugby.co.nz

    Does the margins option

    Allows you to be in a group challenge as well as giving an overall ranking.
