As you'll infer from the post above, you'll 'play' everyone in your pool once. As we've 35 players Pool 'Main 6' is currently short 1 player, so one player each week gets a 'bye' - NB this player should still post predictions as they'll count for the master league table, which determines where the charity funds go.
The pools (at least here, where we're not putting real cash up - unlike the 'real-life' one I'm running at work) are just for bragging rights, banter etc. I've tried to mix up the nationalities in these to correspond to the actual 6 nations.

I'll post updated tables on Sunday/Monday showing each pool, and the master league table.

Good luck all, and enjoy the rugby!

Apologies for the double post,

Wags, I respect your tipping, just unlucky you came up against the class in fixture 1.

Good luck tomorrow. With predicting (esp. for money) you can always have another go.

Ragyboy

PS COME ON ENGLAND !

It's tough to be nailed on favourites, I think the whole of Ireland is in a high state of anxiety. Are they good enough to execute Joe's plan ?

Just to clarify, both Ackermann and I picked France but he went with 11 to my 7. Do I win?

Yes you win that leg my crazy pal but your match up against Ackerman is over the 3 predicted matches so you're marginally ahead so far.

I put a couple of MOTM doubles on last night and North came in at 25/1
I need either Stockdale or Ringrose to be named MOTM in the Ireland game to land around £3K from a tenner bet !

Would love my bet to come it but it's a long shot and I'd trade it in now all day for an England win.

Getting interesting my Celtic pals !
