The rugby tipping competition rules and information page

All kick-off times are UTC and not all of them will be correct
Picking results will end 3 hours before each game’s kick off time. Sometimes not all the matches will be added at the same time, so you should check the “Prediction sheet” 1-2 days before the games are starting, although whenever new games have been added it will be announced on the forum.

After you have filled in your predictions you have to click on “Save”.

Explanation of some of the terms used below:
“Ranking points” are points awarded to the users in the tipping game.
“Scoring points” are the points scored in the real life rugby matches.

You will have to pick exact results.
Example 1: TeamA 35 – 17 TeamB (TeamA to win by 18 scoring points)
Example 2: TeamA 15 – 15 TeamB

The scoring system:
5 ranking points are awarded to those who successfully predict the exact score of the real life game.
Example 1: You predicted TeamA 35 – 17 TeamB and TeamA 35 – 17 TeamB is the final result of the rugby match.
Example 2: You predicted TeamA 14 – 14 TeamB and TeamA 14 – 14 TeamB is the final result of the rugby match.

3 ranking points are awarded to those who successfully predict what team will win the game or if it will be a draw AND also successfully predict the scoring points difference between the winner and the loser.
Example 1: You predicted TeamA 35 – 17 TeamB (TeamA to win by 18 scoring points) and the final result of the match is TeamA 21 – 3 TeamB (TeamA won by 18 points)
Example 2: You predicted TeamA 16 – 16 TeamB and the final result of the match is TeamA 13 – 13 TeamB

1 ranking point is awarded to those who successfully predict what team will win the game.
Example: You predicted TeamA 35 – 17 TeamB (TeamA to win by 18 scoring points) and the final result of the match is TeamA 20 – 7 TeamB (TeamA won by 13 points)

The ranking system:
The users will be ranked by the total number of ranking points they have received for their predictions.

When multiple players have the exact same amount of ranking points, then the following sorting rules are applied on the ranking (most important one at the top):

  1. The number of 5 pointers (exact scores predicted);
  2. The number of 3 pointers (correct margins predicted);
  3. The number of victories predicted;
