Comfortable 17 point win for Welsh Wales

trampie goes 3 up
All to play for as we are 6 apart on each of the future games - heres hoping they are tight matches

bluenosey 9 up
Just 1 apart on their England scores so Arabian Knight will be hoping for an Ireland win

yorkshiredragon 4 up
Only a total of 3 apart in the next 2 games so toffeelover needs an exact score in one to avoid the exit door!

zoolander 4 up
Identical picks in match 3 and only 2 apart in the England match so jimmyching can only cling to England winning by exactly 9

Some closer picking here - could be the Ireland game that is decisive.

PS no rush with he picks, just noticed over the years you are often in near the bell (as am I in some games).

Completely slipped my mind until R5L came on this morning and then I thought, ah, there's somehing I've overlooked :o

Certainly not much in mine and Zoolander's picks.

Great minds think alike 8-)

or fools never differ :oops: :D

No shock, i tipped France to beat Wales in round 2, i got that wrong, so there is plenty of hope that i will get Scotland beating Wales wrong as well. :lol:

Yorkshiredragon is the winner. 18 up and only a 17pt swing if trampie nails it.

Zoolander just 4 up but the England picks are only 1 apart so bluenosey needs an exact 27 point win. Wonder what the bookies would offer on that...

Bloody French with their late try. Ireland were seven up too :evil:

Need a minor miracle now.

Yorkshiredragon wins by 11.

Zoolander wins by 5.

They will be the finalists at Fantasy Twickenham for the final. YD won the draw for the home changing room and first dibs on the cream suits.

Here we go then.... THE FINAL

First up we have Italy v Ireland at 2:30

Both our finalists agree on a fairly tight away win with yorkshire dragon saying 6 and zoolander saying 7

---------------------------

So, unless one gets lucky, we should go into match 2 with just one point in it. Wales v England at 5pm.

Apparently this game means a lot in Egg Chasing circles but in the more important Egg Chasing Prediction circle it turns out it means a hell of a lot more. Our pickers are agreed it will be close but the thing is they don't agree on who will win....
zoolander says Wales by 2, yorkshiredragon says England by 3. Big swings in, over 10 points unless it is a draw.

----------------------------

The third game today is France v Scotland at 8 but we won't care as both of our pickers say France by 12.

So it all will be decided on which nation wins the 5pm kick off unless...

a) it is a draw - in which case zoolander has a 1 pt advantage from that, yd can get that 1pt back in the first game but it wouldn't be enough by our tie-break rules so he needs an exact pick.
(England win by 1 is only 11pts up for yd but he would win on a tie-break if zoolander wins game 1 by 11)

So match 3 is irrelevant and match 1 most probably is.

England win = yorkshiredragon champion
Wales win = zoolander champion
Draw = zoolander champion unless Ireland have won by excatly 6 (the only time match 1 can come into play)
