The 2015 TVAus Rugby World Cup Tipping Competition

It comes around once every 4 years, and in about 3.5 weeks time, the Rugby World Cup for 2015 will be upon us, so there's no better time to sign up to compete in this "once-in-four-years" event - the TVAus Rugby World Cup Tipping Competition.

As with last year, entry is FREE for the 2015 tipping competition! Just rock up each week, put your tips in, and have a go. I will be funding this year's prize pool, but if anyone feels the urge to donate to increase the pool, they are most welcome to.


Prize is $500,000 TVAus Dollars, to be shared between the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place getters at the end of the minor round.

The competition will go ahead if there are 4 or more participants.

Rules

Tips for each round should be in before the first game of the round commences. If you are unable to get your tips in by the deadline, you will automatically be given the away teams for the round, except for the margin match, where you automatically score 0. You won't be able to submit tips after the deadline, so make sure you get them in.

As rounds generally seem to end on a Monday, with the following round starting just 2 days later on a Wednesday, I will endeavour to put up the new round's fixtures the day before the last matches in the current round, to try and give people enough time to get their tips in.

Each round, you will be asked to give a margin for a particular match. If you correctly pick this margin, you will score 5 bonus points, which could be useful by the end of the competition.

*If you correctly select all winners for any given round in the pool stages, you will be awarded a bonus 5 points.*

**If you enter the competition after the commencement of Round 1, you will be given a starting score equal to that of the tipper on the bottom of the ladder at that time minus 5 points.**

Sign up begins now, and Round 1 commences on Saturday the 19th of September. Don't delay - join today! Who will take out the TVAus equivalent of the William Webb Ellis trophy?

Good luck and happy tipping.

Looks like this will need to be cancelled. Only a week and a half until kick off in the first game, and no interest yet.

So count me in :)

Yep. We need one more to make it a goer. If there's no more interest by Monday, I'll cancel this.
