Six Nations 2020
Rounds 1 to 5


Welcome to our first Six Nations Rugby competition.

The rules are quite simple all you have to do each weekend when the Six Nations Rugby takes place is either pick the team that will win each game, followed by the winning margin, or if you think a game might end in a draw. The point system is 5 points for each correct winning team 15 points if you predict the right margin. Then if you are a point out in either direction you get 10 points if two points out 9 points then down to 1 point if ten points out from the margin. No margin points awarded in either direction if eleven points or more out. In the event of a draw you would only get the margin points, unless of course you picked a draw in which case you would get five points for the result and the fifteen margin points, giving you twenty points for that match. So between no points and sixty points available for each weekend of matches, and there are only five weekends to pick from. So this competition is short and sweet.

So to give you an example Joe picks Wales by 15, Scotland by 6, and England by nine. Sid picks Wales by 9 Ireland by 4, and a draw for the last game. Wales won by 15, Ireland won by 14 and the last match was drawn.
Joe scores 20 + 0 + 2 =22.
Sid scores 10 + 6 + 20 =36.

Players will be able to enter in weeks two and three, they will come in on the lowest score. They will not be allowed to answer the tie breaker question.

In the event of a draw we have a tie breaker question which has to be answered on the first Six Nations Rugby predictions. That question is how many tries will Team X score in this years tournament.

Copy and paste the weekends matches and then next to each match in bold pick the team you think will win and in numerics [32] by how many points. If you believe that the match may be drawn instead of the winning team write in bold Draw. It will be interesting to see who'll be brave.

So here are the fixtures for 2020. Entries have to be in by two o'clock Saturday February the first and by two o'clock every Six Nations Saturday there after. If you wish you can enter all five weekends in one go.

Oh, srini, that's smart, though you shouldn't have taken me into account when you did the average.

A try is when you or the opposition cross the try line. It is the equivalent of a touch down in American Gridiron Football. If you don't mind I'll round down your try count to eighteen as it has to be a round number. As for how many a match, well I think with Wales they could score six tries this Saturday and maybe average two or three tries in the other four matches. So I'd say between 14 and 18, so I'd plump for 17 as they have three home games and two away. I hope this helps explain things any more questions don't hesitate to contact me Llynfi
