23 in and I reckon well over half have gone for Wales and it's 10-0 to France so far. I knew that any country that produced Thierry Henry must be good at this handballing malarkey, definite home win.

Both teams deserved to lose that... England and Ireland won’t exactly be quaking in their boots, even if both have to travel to Cardiff.

Looks like I am on dodgy ground here. My only correct prediction was the (not exactly nostradamousesque) pick of Italy to lose.

Bloody posh handballing thug cheats. Hope they've shut your communal showers.

Thanks for running Murf, not sure if I have the scoring correct for my selections.
Some good rugby played this week and congratulation to England beating the Irish in Dublin.
Wales +5 so 50-(9-5)=46
Scotland +13 so 50-(13-3)=40
England +12 so (50-(12+3))-10=25
Total 111 ?
Hope that gets me through to the next round :-) Looking forward to Scotland v Ireland, I think the Irish will be looking for a cricket score.

I was actually cheering Ireland on as I am more interested in this comp than the actual Egg Chasing :lol:

Stay tuned, I am doing the maths as we speak/type......

ROUND 1 RESULTS

Knocked out by 1 point, 1 place! To be honest I had assumed I had crashed out but my hopes were raised when I'd calculated a few of you had done even worse than me. Hey, ho, silly game!

Round 2 is knockout. The draw will follow. (Not just yet - I'll give you all a chance to check my typing/scoring and find the mistakes - the first three numbers are your picks (-ve if you went for the losers) and the next three are your points from each game).
PS jimmyching would have won with 138 if he hadn't changed his picks and scraped through in 14th with 100.

I have checked the scores for everyone and there are some errors in the Wales score. The following players have been affected; TheBigLewandowski (129), bluenosey (119), rookster (119), Moist von Lipwig (got Wales score spot on! - 127) and trampie (113). All other scores appear to be correct. These players all had Wales to win (not France)

Cheers. Will check. The biggest hassle in this is getting the negatives in when you pick the wrong team and vice versa. Does seem too many losers in game 1.

assuming these errors are the only ones, I think this puts you 15th and me 16th. Skin of teeth and all that.

It always happens to me. My gut predictions seem to do better than the predictions I finish off with after swatting up on the 'Experts' opinions.

You only picked 1 correct winner out of 3 if that helps! - but you still qualify as only 7 of the 9 in that situation can go out. Our top 2 should have gone down the bookies as they got 3 out of 3 including the 2 slight outsiders Wales and England.

As I know nothing about egg-chasing I didn't realise they were outsiders! Flabbergasted to be at the top...
