And interestingly when you look back to the 'Wisdom of the Crowd' averages (once you had 'weighted them to eradicate Zappa mad predictions) that game was spot on.

Quite :x

I was doing fine v. Crazy Islander after the Scot/Ire match - but he nailed the Wales margin :x
I met Biggar, once. Don’t think we bonded. Don’t know whether he’s best mates with CI, or anything and I’m not suggesting anything untoward, of course. CI is obviously damn good at this so I’d like to say well played :x

Master League Table, updated for week 2.

England game had a much bigger margin than generally expected - nobody got closer than 20 points away from the actual margin
As a result quite a few people took a bit of a hit at the top of the table. There were a few notable climbers, including ragyboy - who called the Scotland-Ireland game exactly and got closer than anyone else on the England-France. With his MoM double on Peter O'Mahony and Johnny May, he can feel justifiably pleased with his weekends work!

A major flaw in this is that it doesn't make any allowance for the fact that my predictions so far have all be correct, it is just that the teams keep fking up.

England should have won by 70 only they are lazy and shite. This is bound to be my best round though I regret of not thinking of the oul time scores before. Here Doc can mine be redone as I was distracted when this started

I met Biggar, once. Don’t think we bonded. Don’t know whether he’s best mates with CI, or anything and I’m not suggesting anything untoward, of course. CI is obviously damn good at this so I’d like to say well played :x

Reading this I thought I won but you did. Well done.

General 'wisdom of the crowd' predictions (weighted by past performance) so far based on this weeks entrants are:

France by 0.6
England by 8.3
Ireland by 17.4

unweighted we have Scotland by 2.2, England by 7.4 and Ireland by 16.9

Bookies have France by 6, England by 3 and Ireland by 28

Hi Puma

Tie on an individual fixture doesn't matter - the pool head-to-heads are based on the total error over three fixtures. If that is tied, then 2 points each. In any case the pool-based stuff is just for fun in this case, the master league table is based on all predictions and that decides which (players) charity gets the donation.
