Pick the Winning Margin:

N - Narrow1 - 4  points
C - Comfortable5 - 14  points
E - Easy15 - 29  points
T - Thrashing30 +  points

Scoring:

25 points for picking the correct winning team
20 points for picking the correct winning margin (N,C,E,or T)
75 points for picking the correct drawn result (D)
12 points for one rung off the winning margin
 0 points for more than one rung off the winning margin... but you still get 25 points for the win.
 0 points for a 'No Result/Match Abandoned'.

Double points for nominated *Golden Match*
Note: Select only one Golden match per Group = 4 matches
Select 2 GMs for the Quarters and one for the Semis = 3 matches
The Final and the 3rd place play-off match will also be worth Double Points.

Note:
For the 3rd Place Play-Off and the Final.
75 points x 2 = 150 points for a (D) "Draw" after 80 minutes regardless of the final score (i.e. the actual winner after extra time)


e.g.
New Zealand v Italy
"New Zealand E" GM - *Golden Match*
New Zealand wins 34 - 22 (margin 12 points = C) ... one rung off E = 37 points (25 + 12)... x 2 for Golden Match = 74 points.

Scotland v Romania
"Scotland T"
Scotland wins 53 - 11 (margin 42 points = T) = 45 points (25 + 20)

Japan v Samoa
"Samoa E"
Samoa wins 17 - 15 (margin 2 points = N) ... two rungs off E = 25 points (25 + 0)

General Notes:

Please get your selections in at least an hour before the first match kicks off. No points earned for late entries.

I know it's a bit of a task but it would be great if you can post the 40 group matches on the thread below. If there are any reasons you want to change your selection or winning margin - just post it up here and I'll give it a "like" meaning I've taken the change on board.

No problem if you only post up the first dozen or so selections in the coming days (to get the maul rolling) and then post up the rest up later on. Just be aware there's not many breaks in the fixtures so copy and paste the first cab off the rank... and don't forget to adjust the other person's selections!

Due to time differences - I'll try and get the Leader Board up asap. Might be a day and a bit delay but I'll keep you all regularly updated.

So, that's about it. I'll set up the spreadsheet and get ready for the feast of rugby.

Good luck with your picks and may your team go well! OK Ale

Will be a miracle if any of that rubbish I have posted scores much…am tired and semi-boozed in a cottage in Yorkshire and unsure whether the cut and paste worked right…

But makes a change from Cricket competitions and PJ’s efforts deserve all the attention possible. All good fun thumbsup

Cheers alfie.  OK  
Enjoy your time at the cottage. Be careful negotiating that rug after a few snorts! Let's hope this experiment works. Think it will work out OK.

We used to have Sportform's wonderful Six Nations comps which were great fun. He had the pick the score system with a sliding scale of points awarded depending on how close you were to the actual score. This one is similar to the cricket world cup one - think it was King Carlos? or it might have been JDizzle or Robbo who suggested this type of format.

It seemed to work well for the CWC. Alfie, you would probably agree... you won the damn thing!  Very Happy

https://www.606v2.com/t68801-2019-icc-world-cup-tipping-competition

The different rungs are a bit of a punt. Like the cricket one; the challenge was to determine the cut-off points for each rung.

I initially thought a 1-3 points winning margin should be classed as "Narrow"... however I went for 1-4 points to make it slightly more than a penalty kick or field goal difference - but less than a try. Hopefully makes it more interesting. Still it's a very small target to hit.

"Comfortable" is fairly generous - I wouldn't say a 5 point win would be a comfortable win at all - but anything from say a 8,9,10 to a 14 point winning margin could be a seen as a comfortable win.

"Easy" is probably a fair range. Think anything above a 15 point margin could be considered as more than a comfortable win. Although when you get towards a 27, 28, 29 point winning margin... it's practically a thrashing!

"Thrashing" speaks for itself. Ouch! I think in the modern game (in recent times at least) winning margins have become smaller as teams like Italy and Georgia have improved. Don't think we'll see any 142-0 or 111-13 scorelines (in this world cup) like we've had in the past - but there could be some teams which run riot over the likes of Portugal and Chile... and rack up 60 points plus.

There's still time - I can change Easy to 15-39 points and a Thrashing to 40 points plus. Any feedback would be appreciated. What do you think?

As for the actual scoring; I'm mostly generous and like to see the points accumulate. To avoid tied scores ending in 0s or 5s, I've added the 12 points (for one rung off the actual score) to avoid this. So we should get different scores ending in 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, 6s, 7s, 8s and 9s across the 48 matches.

The whole golden match thing is a bit of an incentive to stick your neck out and make a grab for some extra points. Naturally, some of the lop-sided looking fixtures are tempting, aren't they? I didn't include the 3rd place play off - what are people's thoughts? It's still a big game for the 'Bronze'.

Forgot to mention another tempter for the bravest amongst us: you can nominate "D" for a Draw. If correct, you'll get a whopping 35 points. Actually, we should make it 50 points. And if it's your golden match you get 100 points. Any takers? Let me know below and I can change the points awarded.

Anyway, thanks Duty, Lowland, nlpnlp and alfie for your predictions. With me it would make 5 members. We need some more punters though...

I think we need at least 10-12 others to make this thing viable and create some competition. I'm hoping all the 'views' can translate into participants before the first match kicks off later today (my time). I'd imagine we'll get more takers later on. I understand some folk are simply holding back until the latest injury news and final team announcements. Expecting a late flurry of postings this evening and then we can really get this comp underway.

Looking forward to getting this one moving and giving us all an extra layer of interest in the unfolding drama that will no doubt occur over the next 7 weeks - culminating on 28 October with the Final.

Aww gawd... You're almost as bad as KP_Fan. Or Guildford. Where is he by the way?

While you're here....

Can you PM some of the serious ones from the England, Scotland and Ireland threads? Or just plonk this link into their respective thought bubbles?

https://www.606v2.com/t71211-2023-rugby-world-cup-tipping-competition

I know all the English are worried and depressed, the Scots are only looking at their own noses... and the Irish have better things to discuss. We're going to need more troops on board otherwise I might have to pull the plug during the anthems. You could earn a special virtual 606v2 Award if you can muster up some more volunteers...

Bugger it. I know you're a lazy sod. I drop the links in. Wink

It's a pity that Tino's dead again. He could've really set this competition on fire with his bold predictions and thrilling insights.

Yeah, he always seems to go missing when we need him most. He's probably just stuck in traffic though and will show up here during La Marseillaise.

Sure westisbest... post up your selections for tomorrow's matches.  OK

I'm just about to post the leaderboard.
I'm coming dead last on 107 points... so I'll start you on 110 because you're a great guy but you'll be just below Hazel.

Same goes for anyone else who wants to join... I'll start you all on 110 points.

You're doing pretty well... within striking distance of the lead.

Kicking myself for going a bit soft on a few picks. Now realising there may be more thrashings.
I had high hopes for Namibia keeping the scoreline a little closer but Italy had other ideas.
Was also worried when SA came out in those alternate jerseys and the score was rather close at half time... but they shone through in the end.

Also noticed... that first France-NZ game, last conversion, when one flag was up and the other down. If it would have ended up 29-13... then it would have been an E and not a C (at 27-13) and would have significantly affected the rankings on here. Just a bit of trivia for you...

Think I've had 3 results which were one point off the next bracket - 2 to the good and lost out on the other.

Yeah, a C is always a good bet if your team wins. If you're either side with an N or an E... you score 37 points. But only if it's 4 below and 14 above.
Same with an E... 37 points for a C and a T but with a much larger range available if you're only off a rung. 10 below and infinity above. Very Happy

The random nature of red cards doesn't help much. Thought England v Argentina was as nailed on a draw as you'll find in rugby, then the Argies fell apart only having to play against 14 men. You should introduce a 10 point bonus lottery for each red card predicted.

Or a 20-point Morné Steyn bonus for a single player scoring all the points with kicks. Although to be fair, Morné also scored a try when he scored his 31 points against the All Blacks in 2009.

Astonished to be doing so well - at least so far. Would have been even better if Fiji had converted that last try. Can't complain though......if that chap hadn't dropped the ball at the end Wales and I may have lost... I feel lucky 😊

Thanks Hazel,

I'm assuming you probably would have tipped France and NZ to win.  Smile
Nobody got the France winning margin exactly correct. We all picked one rung off and scored 37 points. Everyone got the NZ T exactly correct (45).

So, I'll add half of 82 = 41 points to your tally... to get you moving again. Also don't forget your 4 golden matches... unless you're saving for later.

Same goes for tigertattie and BamBam who missed the last 2 games... but only if they can get the rest of the round picks in before the next match. Otherwise, I'll have to assume that they've dropped out. Which would be a shame.

Also ~ half of 37 points = 19 points for Irishhoneymonster and westisbest who both missed the Fra-Uru match but have now submitted their picks.


Doesn't affect the table rankings at all... just squeezes the lower scores upwards a bit.  Hope everyone else is OK with that.

I'll post the updated table up after today's matches.
