Schools’ Cup Prediction League

Jump to: Entry Form // Overall // Monthly // Rules

The 2015/16 Schools’ Prediction Competition kicked-off at the start of January with monthly prizes available (£20 Ulster Rugby voucher) for manager of the month as well as an overall prize (£50 Ulster Rugby voucher!) for the best player during the whole season (see Rules for full details).

The usual scoring is in effect (see RULES) as well as offering a 1pt bonus for getting at least four results correct (teams and/or points results; not cumulative with the 2pt bonus). Simply select the outcome, tries scored, kicks scored (includes pens, convs and drop-goals) and the points differential for each match listed, as well as your tie-breaker prediction, then enter your name and email address (keep these the same throughout the competition) and click ‘Submit’ before the deadline below; note that this deadline is earlier than usual as the Plate Final takes place Monday 14th March.

The 2016 competition is now complete; please see below for results

Rules
The Rules and Regulations are identical to last season and are as follows:

Entries In order for all your predictions to count your entry must be made before the deadline mentioned in the details above the entry form; any entries made after the deadline will not be counted. In the case of a competitor making multiple entries in any given week only the final entry will be considered.

Scoring
The scoring is as follows:

1 point for correctly predicting a win/loss
1 point
for correctly predicting the point difference (where applicable)
3 points for correctly predicting a draw
2 bonus points for correctly predicting all results in a given week, except the final week

Other bonuses will also be available; details about these will be provided each week above the entry form. ‘Results‘ refers to both wins/draws/losses (before replays and/or extra-time) and point differentials. The 2 point bonus is not cumulative with any other bonuses.

Manager of the Month
Manager of the Month will be awarded to the competitor that scores the highest number of points in any particular month. In the event of a tie a tie-break question will be used to decide the overall winner. Competitors can only receive one Manager of the Month prize and in the case of a competitor winning a second, or more, the prize will go to the the next highest scorer.

Overall Winner
The overall winner of the Schools’ Cup Prediction League will be the competitor that scores the most points throughout the season. In the case of an overall tie, previous tie-breakers and then previous results will be used decide the season winner.

Eligibility
There are no restrictions to eligibility for this competition apart from active contributors to the Front Row Union being ineligible to receive any prizes. In the case of a contributor of the Front Row Union winning a prize the prize will be awarded to the next highest scorer. The decision of the Editor of the Front Row Union will be final in the case of eligibility.
