    Default Rugbyrefs.com 6 Nations Comp

    It's that time of year again.

    Normal rules apply, but in addition followers of us on Twitter & Facebook can also enter.

    A donation is required if you want to play for prizes, as always the donation is up to you, if you want you can play for fun.

    I'll post the rules and games up in a bit as an edit to this post.

    There will be a prize for:

    1. Top placed person (No matter where they are from)
    2. Top Forum Person
    3. Top Twitter Person
    4. Top Facebook Person
    5. Top Placed Person FROM the following countries Unions which we have prizes for:
      1. Scotland
      2. Wales
      3. France


    No person can win more than one prize, if you win more than one you will get the better prize (your choice) and the other prize will be given to next best in that category.

    Point Scoring Explained
    1, Players are required to predict the winning team, and the winning margin.
    2, The closer to the actual prediction you get, the less points you receive. The winner of this comp will be the person with the least points.
    3, Point scoring is as follows:
    A, Predicting the correct winning team, and correct margin (including correct prediction of a draw) will get -5 points.
    B, Predicting the correct winning team, but incorrect margin will score the difference between the correct margin and your prediction.
    C, Predicting the wrong team will see you score the difference between the scores plus a 15 point penalty.
    D, Failing to submit a prediction will see you gain the difference between zero & the actual margin, plus a 25 point penalty. If the game is drawn, the penalty is increased to 50 points.
    Examples:
    Prediction Actual Score Points Penalties Total Points
    Eng by 5 Eng by 5 -5 0 -5
    Eng by 5 Eng by 8 3 0 3
    Eng by 5 Sco by 3 8 15 23
    Eng by 5 Draw 5 15 20
    No Prediction Eng by 5 5 25 30
    No Prediction Draw 0 50 50
    The table is sorted first by Score, then by amount of correct predictions.

    Awesome...
    Donation per competition? ;-)
    Rule #1: If the law doesn't forbid it, it's allowed.
    Rule #2: If it ain't in the Law Book, don't make it up.

    How do we determine where we come from? I was born in Jersey, my father was English, my mother born in Wales, my two paternal grandparents English, my maternal grandparents being respectively Welsh and Scottish. My kids are half Italian.
    Don't feed the pedant!

    Dixie,

    What team will you be supporting?

    For the rest, Links are just wiki, so shouldn't be links, I have removed them. I'll upload the spreadsheet in a minute.
