    Default European Rugby Prediction Games

    With the Premier League prediction game in full swing I wondered if there were any rugby fans out there who fancy a ‘punt’ on the two European cups starting shortly. Or maybe you’re doing so badly that you think you might as well have a go with a different shaped ball

    They are over a shorter period and require less frequent picks than the football so should not be too onerous. The format is the same for both competitions, group games are played over two weeks in Oct, two in Dec and two in Jan. The Knockout stages are then in April/May next year.

    There are two competitions available,

    The Heineken Cup is for Europe’s premier rugby teams and starts this Friday 8th October. The Pubs Galore league code is SUESHIGH.

    The Amlin European Challenge Cup is for Europe’s second string teams with the first game this Thursday 7th October. The Pubs Galore league code is MOVEHOLE.

    All those participating in the Premier League game should get an e-mail invitation, anyone else who wants to join is welcome but please let me know via this forum as I will need to accept the application. The Sportsguru site can be found at this link

    I'm would probably predict scores that are mathmatically impossible in rugby but I'll take a look. I know that there aren't many 0-0 draws so that's a start.

    Just thought - I have a mate who is quite into rugby so I may seek advice!

    The way the scoring works in these games is different to the football where you have to predict an actual score. All you need to do with the rugby ones is to predict who will win and nominate by how many points. You get a point for predicting the winner and bonus points if you get within 5 points either way of the winning margin. Generally people will nominate a winning margin somewhere between 5 and 20 points.

    Made my guesses (I am loath to call them picks). My mate William Hill gave me a hand! Only 4 takers so far so at least I won't be far off the top place at any stage.

    I'm in for both, although i've had to choose a club for the Amwin Cup...

    I've plumped for Harlequins, being another London Club, but as we all sing......

    I'd be interested in doing a six nations one next year if they do it, but I think I'll give this one a miss.

    Have to say this doesn't really appeal to me - never been interested in "egg chasing"

    I will have a quick look though - you never know !

    I would be up for the six nations
