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

Total Correct Picks: 100/236 or 42.37%

Results:
Italy E
France T

Notes:
Those members in italics (below the dashed line) have failed to post their selections on several occasions. You're wrecking our "team" average score!
You have until one hour before the next match kick-off to post your picks from Match 19 onwards - otherwise you will be removed from the comp.
Sorry, I've been far too patient, sending PM reminders, listening to sob stories from banned members - and it's not really fair for the rest of us.
So a final warning: roll away and clear the ruck area... submit your picks... or you'll all be facing red cards and possible further disciplinary action from the 2023 RWC Tipping Competition Review Committee (TCRC) - which will be meeting in Montevideo on Saturday evening.

Commiserations, PJ. Didn't see that one coming, was even considering making an Aussie win my GM as this group isn't too easy to predict.

Cheers Galted. Lucky you didn't make them your GM.  Wink

I went heart over head and this result didn't surprise me; the winning margin did shock me though. Wales thoroughly owned them across the park.

A big post mortem is already underway here. Justin Harrison (whom I met in January) is trying his best to salvage what's left. Hoops too. Knives seem to be half drawn with Eddie and AR Chairman, Hamish McLennan (who sacked Dave Rennie) clearly the targets. Eddie is on now talking fluff and keeping the conversation short.

Well, at least I can look forward to the rest of the tournament as a proper 'neutral'. I have a feeling they'll bomb out in the CWC too. The wheels are already loose and they seem to have forgotten how to win as well.

Yeah hard luck Australia. Always had a soft spot for them.

Some talented young players there.

Would have like to see Hooper and Cooper included to help the younger guys out.

Think they will get the 5 point win against Portugal, also though can see Fiji picking up at least 8 points from the last two games.

Thought the Aussies would find a way, even if outplayed, like they did in November.  Really sad to see.

Ha. I was foolish enough to make an Aussie win in this one my GM - thought no one else would Smile

Amazingly still doing quite well I see but I’ve played all my GMs now so expect to fall away soon.

Really didn’t expect Australia to get far here but never saw that carve up coming ! Rugby will be disappearing from the back pages of the local papers back in Aus , I suspect. Probably early attention to horse racing as I see the cricket team hasn’t done too well against India either…

Absolutely sickened at the level of corruption in this competition, most notably the collusion between PJ and the IRB in arranging results which I haven't predicted.  And yet people will continue to whinge about red cards and yellow cards and no cards.

FIFA, Russia and Taiwanese betting syndicates. Might have to refer it to the moderators to sort out.

You guys are a bag of laughs.... Laugh

Now will someone fish me out of the pool?

Pool C.

p.s.
I just saw Luis Rubiales force the senior Romanian physiotherapist woman into one of the cabanas near me.
She put up a bit of a fight at first... but soon gave in when he planted his smooth Latin tongue on her face.

Honestly astonished to be still in touch with the lead…having put all my
‘guesses” in advance of game one and forgotten much of what I posted I am only now looking at the remaining games and wondering if I should make any alterations…
No : best continue to rely on dumb luck Smile

Notes:
The good doctor got a boost with his Scotland T golden match v Romania and is on top of the table again. OK
8 of us have chosen Australia T as our golden match v Portugal. The pressure is on...
I note Duty has POR-N. You should keep these personal things to yourself and not post it on the internet! Or you'll end up like Galted. Be careful! Smile

Thought for a while that Duty's bold tipping of Portugal to beat Aus would be the big move this week.

Ah well as I expected …I’m heading South and Galted is on the rise : the world is getting back to normal…
Consolation that Duty is falling away faster than me (Portugal ? Really ?) at the moment and we are both still ahead of the average Smile

Doctor seems to be doing rather well so perhaps knowing a bit more about Rugby is an advantage … has been fun while the high ride lasted anyway …

Yes, it's a pretty compact table from 2-7... even 2-9. Doc has a nice 42-point buffer.

Duty was very brave I thought. He would have felt great if POR-N had come off. It certainly wouldn't have been a happy ending for me though.
My legs are already shaking watching the Wallabies stumble through this. Heart rate was up a bit too but has now recovered back to normal.


A little cross promotion for anyone interested. Took the plunge and went for another tipping comp... so I'll be doing some numbers juggling well into November. May as well, eh?  Smile
