    Hmm – Reader going for the “All Away Wins except for Italy” strategy….

  • Greenflag

    Dewi ,

    This thread looks to me like a lot of laughter with all those hahas and ahahaha but i don’t see the joke or punchline ?

    Sure we all know that Ireland are going to win the championship yet again 😉 ?

    I’ll have a bash at the week end at the numbers but for the weekend coming up I’ll go HHA for games 1.2, and 3 with 110 points .

    Best of luck at Twickers pity about Lee Byrne though.

  • BryanS

    I did comsider going for all draws

  • Reader

    Dewi: Hmm – Reader going for the “All Away Wins except for Italy” strategy….
    I should maybe have looked at the Scotland games too. But, 3 times as many points for an away win as for a home win! And home wins surely aren’t three times as likely. I know a bit more about maths than Rugby.
    By the way, my past experiences in prediction competitions suggest that Italy will proceed to carry all before them this year.

  • Greenflag

    reader,

    Replace that crystal ball quickly before you do yourself any more damage 😉

  • Dewi

    GF -I got a process mun – predict all to get in the game. Reader – I know a lot about Maths and Rugby and it’s a fine balance…

  • Dewi

    For info:

    Six Nations 200-2009.
    Games Played 150
    Home Wins 89
    Away Wins 59 (of which 20 involved Italy in Rome)
    Draws 2

  • Dewi

    ..and on average Reader’s strategy of all away wins apart from Italy would realise 21 points. For reference last year’s winner in work got 23..
