2020 Tipping Competition - Tshirt Prize!

Postby dwpeate » Sun, 12 Jan 2020, 11:59

Greetings all fellow/prospective tippers!


The time is almost upon us for the 2020 Competition to begin. I shall be uploading fixtures in the next 7 days.

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.
Ordinarily I would include the matches such as Russia and Georgia's pre ENC warm ups however to allow for any new tippers signing up and finding their way around the competition page I will start from February 1st.


The winner of the 2020 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!

F***, I had one job: not forgettin the tipping contest ! :oops:

Anyway, this year again, let's celebrate the 5 and 3-pointers of the contest.
You can win this contest if you find one exact score. You always have a chance even if you are way behind in the official tipping contest !
Last year, there were only 4 5-pointers in the whole year.

Portugal 23-17 Belgium
Trendsetta 22-16

2020 ranking (5s-3s)
Trendsetta 0-1

Do we know if the Asian Championships are actually going ahead or being postponed to May like the Women's tournament?
