2019 Tipping Competition - T-shirt Prize!

Postby dwpeate » Tue, 22 Jan 2019, 21:13

Greetings all fellow/prospective tippers!

*10 days to go until the first test match of the year!*

The time is almost upon us for the 2019 Competition to begin. I shall be uploading fixtures shortly, once iul has recorded the results for the tipping archive.

For new participants:
In order to participate you need to follow these steps:
1. Go to the tipping page: tipping/
2. Create an account for the tipping page.

For people that have played before - your account already exists.

You can read more information about the scoring and ranking system and other information here: tipping/rules

You have to press "Save" after making your picks otherwise your picks will not be saved and will not be taken into consideration.

I will try my best to alert you when new games have been added.
This year I am likely to continue to upload matches in bulk (2 or 3 weeks at a time, depending on how many games are coming up) as I have less time on my hands since becoming a dad at the end of the year! It is looking like we will have test matches every single week of the year from February and probably up until December.

The winner of the 2019 International Rugby Tipping Competition will get his favorite nation's rugby T-shirt (the winner can pick any nation, provided their T-shirts can actually be bought from somewhere online and costs up to 70-ish euro shipping included).

Get your accounts ready, and I will see you all on the tipping pitch!

Good luck!

Personnally I forgot the games on Friday (although I watched the France one...).
I always do it quite late, on the day of the games. I know I must change of tactics as I lost so many points like that the previous years.
For example, today, I can't bet for the Italy game even if it starts in 2 hours.
