For the first time we’ve had the joker come into useful play and it’s made a significant difference to the scores. That plus a cunning punt on Italy over Scotland has led to the following table…

Position Score
1 +40 Me*
2 -1 Alex*

Final scores!

Well, it was a great tournament. By which I mean that I won the betting. I think Dec, who would normally be eternally shamed at losing a bet to me, will trade it for the Irish Grand Slam. Pease and The Grad though? Very poor showing.

Will Ireland get a Grand Slam? Will Dave or Me win the money? Will Ant set new record levels of sucking?

All this, and more, to be revealed:

Me Dec Alex Pease Dave
Italy vs France France by 18 France by 18 France by 14 France by 15 France by 19
England vs Scotland England by 15 England by 15 England by 22 England by 18 England by 13
Wales vs Ireland Ireland by 1 Ireland by 7 Wales by 9 Wales by 5 Wales by 2

The status is as below. The big three figures for Pease!

Position Score
1 -16 Me
2 -40 Dave
3 -75 Alex
4 -92 Dec
5 -126 Pease

Predictions for this weekend are:

Me Dec Alex Pease Dave
Italy vs Wales Wales by 10 Wales by 15 Wales by 18 Wales by 25 Wales by 18
Scotland vs Ireland Ireland by 5 Ireland by 12 Ireland by 12 Ireland by 15 Ireland by 8
England vs France England by 3 France by 8 France by 5 France by 7 England by 2

Current status is:

Position Score
1 -3 Me
2 -19 Dave
3 -40 Alex
4 -55 Dec
5 -75 Pease

Current status is:

Position Score
1 -1 Dave
2= -9 Me Dec
4 -15 Alex
5 -26 Pease

Pease seems to think that England will win by 12 at Croke Park. He is a nutter.

Predictions for this weekend are:

Me Dec Alex Pease Dave
France vs Wales France by 5 Wales by 9 Wales by 6 Wales by 8 Wales by 3
Scotland vs Italy Scotland by 10 Italy by 6 Scotland by 8 Italy by 5 Scotland by 8
Ireland vs England Ireland by 10 Ireland by 12 England by 4 England by 12 Ireland by 9

An improved performance by England, but they still lost. A similar thing could be said for Declan this week. Current leaderboard:

Position Score
1 -1 Dave
2= -9 Me Dec
4 -15 Alex
5 -26 Pease

So after Round 1, the leaderboard looks like this:

Position Score
1= -5 Me Dave
3= -17 Alex Ant
5 -18 Dec

Predictions for this weekend are:

Me Dec Alex Pease Dave
France vs Scotland France by 12 France by 23 France by 19 France by 15 France by 13
Wales vs England Wales by 15 Wales by 10 Wales by 9 Wales by 10 Wales by 8
Italy vs Ireland Ireland by 20 Ireland by 29 Ireland by 27 Ireland by 13 Ireland by 12

With the Six Nations beginning tomorrow, it seems an appropriate time to lose some money to Declan. Or someone else. But most likely Declan. Anyway, the rules of the game are simple:

Each person puts £10 in.
Winner takes all.

For each game pick a winner and by how many points.

+5 for the right winner
+10 for the exact right points difference
-1 for each points difference out

e.g. England vs Italy guess England win by 10 points.

If England win 23-13 – +15
If England win 23-12 – +4
If England win 23-15 – +4
If England lose 23-13 – -20

Winner is the one with the most overall points at the end.

Predictions for the first round are below:

Me Dec Alex Pease Dave
England vs Italy England by 10 England by 15 England by 17 England by 15 England by 13
Ireland vs France Ireland by 7 France by 8 France by 5 France by 5 Ireland by 3
Scotland vs Wales Wales by 10 Wales by 12 Wales by 8 Wales by 10 Wales by 15
