Rugby World Cup Competition Finals Empty Rugby World Cup Competition Finals

Post by sportform Sun 13 Sep 2015, 1:24 am

So this is it. Afte six weeks we are down to the last two games including the final. Quickball have a decent looking lead of 76 pts going into the last weekend of the competition. The leaderboard for the quarter finals can be seen by following the link below:-
https://www.606v2.com/t60658-rugby-world-cup-competition-quarter-finals-leaderboard#3154281

The rules for this competition are the same. All you have to do is guess the score of each game. You gain points on how close you are and the game outcome.

You can either add your scores for each group pre-tournament or weekly. There will be four weeks of fixtures during the group stage. I will update this thread each Sunday and update the leaderboard each Monday throughout the group stages. I have listed the group fixtures and the week 1 fixtures below.

Please add your score predictions onto the end of this thread. Add all new scores with separate posts

The rules are as follows:-

1) Each week you will be asked to predict the scores from that weekend's games. All predictions must be made before the start of the games.

2) You will be get points depending on how close you are to the actual score. Points will be awarded in the following way:-
- You will get 20 points for getting the correct match outcome.
- You will get 10 points for getting a teams score correct.
- You will lose one of those 10 points for every point you are away from a teams score. Therefore you must be with 10 points of a teams score to gain points.
- If you get a match score spot on you will be awarded with double points. So if the correctly predict a match's score you will receive a maximum 80 points.

Example:-
Your prediction - Ireland 17-31 Wales
Actual result - Ireland 25-31 Wales
Your score 32 points

You would receive 20 points for correctly predicting Wales to win. As you were 8 points off Ireland's score you get 2 points for that and another 10 points for getting Wales' score spot on.

I was thinking more along the lines of a brown paper bag full of cash and a couple of hookers.

Maybe if you knew a bit more about Fiji's team you wouldn't be so brazen in your assumptions.

Can you make sure he gets clear instructions on how to post photos on here...! It's not exactly simple.

Only be fair to give him a bit of time to do so.

I think the Italy match took the stuffing out of Wales a bit so I edged a hesitant bet rather than predicting a full thrashing.

I fear Wales may struggle to start at full tempo. I hope I'm wrong as points could well make all the difference.

I was going to say that's a bold move! Much as I'd love to see Fiji winning against the head against any of the big sides in A it's just not going to happen, although maybe against Wales... Watch this space! England are pretty solid at the moment and should be able to stop the Fijians.

Here's my penny's worth:

Ireland 37-12 Canada
South Africa 49-5 Japan

Hopefully. Garland invariably has the players mindset right. We started well against Italy, then Rhys Webb suffered his injury all cause for celebration was lost.

You're wrong Wink

Hopefully. Garland invariably has the players mindset right. We started well against Italy, then Rhys Webb suffered his injury all cause for celebration was lost.

Wales will be fine! Don't you worry yourself into a frenzy there. They're got a good run out against final tier opposition to act as a live fire training run to get the combies firing, before things get progressively tougher!

Looking at the predictions, with the exception of a couple of a couple of guys who obviously don't have a PC that has an inbuilt breathalyser and who picked Fiji to beat England, everyone is going for the same teams to win every game.
Hopefully, this is only because the opening week's fixtures don't really have too many games like 2nd seed-v-3rd seed where there is a reasonable chance of an "upset". If it all goes to form, the pool stages could be tedious.
Then again, with Scotland around, anything could happen and we could get pumped by any team if we get it horribly wrong

England should in no way lose to Fiji. But it is the closest match up to a possible upset.

If you were trying to get ahead in the league early calling a result no one else does is a smart tactical move.
