The 2019 PSA Academies 6 Nations Predictions Challenge – Standings & Week 2 Predictions

STOP THE PRESSES! The Simple Beer Drinking Rugby Fan (AKA Neil Marchant) has streaked clear of the field after week 1 of the PSA Academies 2019 6 Nations Predictions Challenge.  With a comfortable 10 point advantage and good looking set of predictions in the bag for this week, who can reel in the biggest shock leader since Theresa May took office as UK Prime Minister???


PSA Academies 2019 6 Nations Predictions Challenge – Post Round 1 Standings

  • 1st place – Neil  20 points
  • Tied 2nd place – Ben, Cory, Graham & Lewi – 10 points
  • Tied 6th place – Johan, Johne & Philippe – 5 points

Next, the 2019 6 Nations Predictions Challenge rules are simple. Each competitor provides a one line match summary plus a prediction of winning team and margin (if a draw was predicted, they need to predict the total match points). It is 5 points for a correct result prediction and 5 points for a correct winning margin/total draw match points total.

The ‘expert’ with the most points at the end of the tournament is crowned the 6 Nations Predictions Challenge ‘King of the Picks’, whilst the person finishing last needs to complete a forfeit to be agreed by the team at the end of the 6 Nations.
