Rugby World Cup 2019 prediction thread.

Recommended Posts

The first game will be played on Friday, kick off time 11.45 am UK time.  I think I'll keep the scoring as simple as possible.

 

You just have to predict the winner and score difference.

 

i.e. Team 'a' v team 'b'   Team 'a' to win ( one point awarded if correct) and to win by 46 points. (46 points awarded) this would give you a total of 47 points.

 

Assume the score was team 'a' 53 team 'b' 7 difference being 46. + one point for the victory.

 

Hope that makes sense.

Unfortunately the only person I could tap up for this sort of information walked out of work last week. He was clearly not in the right place he learned quite quickly that conversational gambits on a  Monday morning that started "Did you see the rugby at the weekend?" were going to be met with tumbleweed levels of silence from the rest of the team.

I can assure you I'm no expert. Possibly the same can be said by most deathlisters.

Rugby is a racist sport, not a single Arab nation in the world cup

I will support Tonga instead, as it might be in Africa, but not sure.
