    Default E-I March Competition: Six Nations Rugby Championship

    E-I March Competition: 6 Nations Rugby Championship




    The E-I March Competition is based on predicting the results of the matches in the RBS 6 Nations Championship. The competition runs from 6th February until 20th March, but is officially the competition for March. It is somewhat similar to the Premiership competitions, in that you just have to predict the outcome of the matches rather than the actual score, but there are some extra bonus prediction options and the system for awarding points is different. The competition is being organised by Experienced Punter and myself.


    Format and Rules


    1. All registered E-I members may participate and members may use only one of their user names.

    2. The predictions for each weekends matches must be posted prior to the scheduled kick-off time of the first match each weekend.
    ( see the full fixture list below)

    3. You must either predict the winning team in each match or predict if you think a match will be drawn. In the event that you choose to predict a winner, you have the option of taking part in two bonus point predictions. Firstly you can predict whether your chosen winner will score 4 or more tries and secondly you can predict whether your chosen loser will be beaten by 7 points or less. Both these bonus point predictions are optional; you can choose to make them for some matches and not for others, or only make one bonus point prediction for a particular match. Please note, that if you are predicting a drawn match, bonus point predictions will then not apply to that match.
    (see examples of predictions below).

    4. Points for correct predictions will be awarded on the following basis:

    For a correct win prediction you will be awarded 4 points and for a correct draw prediction 8 points. No points will be awarded if your prediction is incorrect.

    Only if you make a correct winning prediction will your bonus point predictions be taken into account. In other words, if you predict the winner incorrectly, your bonus point predictions are null and void and will score no points.

    For each of the bonus point predictions that you get correct, you will gain 1 bonus point. However, 1 point will be deducted for each bonus point prediction that is incorrect.

    5. If for any reason, a match or matches are cancelled or postponed beyond the end of March, they will be excluded from the E-I competition.

    6. Following the completion of each weekend's series of matches, the match results, the RBS 6 Nations League Table and the E-I Competition League Table will be posted.

    Yep, that's fine Mousey.

    Just to clear up a little confusion with some of the bonus point predictions.......when you are making a prediction of the loser's losing margin, it is either "lose by 7 or less points" or "lose by more than 7 points".....it is not "lose by 7 or more points".

    In addition, please always remember to state that it is the losing team's losing margin. I saw one prediction which named the winning team and predicted the winner's winning margin. I know that it's the same thing, but it only brings up the possibility of confusion if the format for predictions is changed.

    I have now amended any instances of the above to the correct format.

    A few people I know were quite upset to see that Rule Brother.
