With 8 games played over a stunning weekend of rugby, I’ve now updated the scores and allocated the points.
As a reminder, you get:
- 5 points for the right winner
- 10 points for the exact score
- 5 points for being within 5
- 2 points for being within 10
- 1 point for any scores over 50, of which there haven’t been any yet!
Firstly, congratulations to Ralph Lubkowski and Matt Lorrimore for nailing the Wales result – both predicted a 45 point win for the Leeks.
Secondly, congratulations to Paul Field who was the only person to predict a Japan win. I mean, seriously?
Of the other scores, nobody had Georgia beating Tonga, although Ben Heaton picked up 2 points by predicting Tonga by 3, so getting the score within 10 points. Stupid scoring system, I know!
Overall, the match which produced the best overall scoring was NZ v Argentina. Other than a handful, myself included, most thought it would be close, and it was!
So, here’s your table after 8 of the 40 pool matches:
Well done to David Prettyjohns and Matt Lorrimore who take the early lead, but remember: it’s a marathon, not a sprint!
Well played, and onto Wednesday!
