Six Nations 2021


Six Nations
2021



Welcome to our Six Nations Rugby competition. Hopefully the coronavirus will have eased enough to allow all the matches to go ahead. Unfortunately last year I was not able to complete the Six Nations due to a family bereavement.

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.

  ◘  In the event of a draw at the end of the comp we have a tie breaker question which has to be answered in Round 1 with the first Six Nations Rugby predictions.
  ◘  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.
  ◘  Entries to be in by kickoff 2:15pm each round. If you miss the deadline, default is that round's lowest score.

Well we've seen the first round of matches of the Six Nations, the first game saw Italy at home being overwhelmed by a good French team, Italy losing the match by forty points. The wheels came off England's chariot as they squandered their possession, while Scotland put up a great defensive performance to carry the day by a five point margin. Then Sunday saw Wales' best performance under coach Parvik when they beat a fourteen man Ireland side by five points.

As for our tournament we currently have seven entries, all of whom picked a French win, a England win and six went for a Irish win. Which meant that after the French match only George95 had margin points, two. So George95 took an early lead by topping the table with seven points, with every one else on five. No change after the England match with no one picking a Scottish win. However the last match saw yours truly the only one to pick Wales to win and picked up eight margin points

Round two's first match saw two beaten sides playing each other England and Italy. England ran out victors by a twenty three point margin. Italy put up gutsy performance but were out gunned.

Match two saw two unbeaten sides Scotland and Wales it was a very tight match. It became a game of high drama with both teams scoring very good tries. Wales won by a point.

The third match Ireland played France, France were unbeaten the Irish needed the win. Just like the previous game it was a tense affair right up to the final whistle which saw France win by one point. France scored two tries in this match to add to the seven from last week, giving them nine tries in total.

No games this coming weekend we have to wait until the weekend after next.

As for our tournament we were joined by two new entries Leodavinci and ozzz2002. George 95 was a no show, two of our players made three correct match predictions Srini701 and Llynfi. Srini701 had fifteen prediction points and twenty two margin points, a total of thirty seven points, Llynfi scored thirty four points, which allowed him to hold on to first place.

Well we had the Sunday game between Scotland and France called off and will possibly played at the end of March. As for the other two games Ireland beat Italy by thirty-eight points. Ireland were dominant through the whole game with Italy having just two or three bright spells. That was followed by Wales V England in which Wales won by sixteen points. They scored four tries to gain a bonus point to go with the win. With sixty minutes gone it was anyone's game however in the last twenty minutes of the game England's bad discipline lead to three kicked penalties and then the bonus point try.

So how did we fair, well we all picked an Irish win, but no one picked up any margin points; srini701 was the closest with 27 as a margin 28 to 48 was needed. The Welsh game saw wwe84, LeoDaVinci, and ozzz2002 go for England and everyone else picking correctly. With Llynfi and gtho4 both getting three margin points and George95 getting one margin point. The others getting the five win points. So both Llynfi and gtho4 finished the day with a total of thirteen points.

So the scores with five points apiece wwe84, LeoDaVinci and ozzz2002 with ten points; srini701, Howie72, and Dizart with ten points; George95 eleven points and thirteen points apiece Llynfi and gtho4.
