Great prizes will be on offer for the top three entrants. Prizes will be made known closer to the final; technology changes a lot in six months!!

This format is a combination of three different formats and is unique!

1. Competition Format:

There are three ways to score points:
(i) Each entrant picks 3 teams; 1 from each Conference. These picks will remain fixed throughout the tournament.
(ii) Predict the winner and points margin of every game. These picks must be submitted before midnight of the first game of each round; normally Thursday.
(iii) Each entrant makes 3 "Fantasy" picks. These picks will remain fixed throughout the tournament.

2. The Points System is as follows:

2A. Team Prediction Points System:
(i) Score 7 points for every try scored
(ii) Score 3 points for every conversion and drop goal.
(iii) Score 2 points for every penalty.

2B. Game Prediction Points System:
(i) If you are spot on with winner and margin, you score 35 points.
(ii) If you predicted the winner right, you score 10 points
(iii) If you predicted the winner right, you score (11 - predicted margin difference) up until 0
(iv) If you predicted the winner incorrectly, you score 0.

Example: Result: Lions beat Bulls by 10

(a) faniedry predicts Lions win by 10.
- faniedry scores 35 points for being spot on - see 2B(i)
- Total 35 (Max amount)

(b) MickeyD predicts the Lions win by 7 points.
- MickeyD scores 10 points for predicting the correct winner - See 2B(ii)
- MickeyD scores (11 - 3) = 8 margin points - See 2B(iii)
- Total 18

(c) Ho3n3r predicts the Bulls by 25.
- Ho3n3r scores 0 points - See 2B(iv)
- Total 0 (Min amount)

2C: Fantasy Season Points System:
(a) Which team will score the most tries in the season? (1 pick)
(b) Which player will score the most tries in the season? (2 picks)
(c) Which player will score the most points in the season? (2 picks)

for (b) and (c) the pick with the highest points will be considered your final pick and points will be awarded as such.

(i) Each correct pick earns you 100 points
(ii) If you pick all three correctly, you earn a further 200 points
(iii) Points will be awarded after the final game

4. Standard MyBB Competition Rules will apply including the following:
(i) No clones - only one entry per person.
(ii) Picks for the 3 conference teams, first round results and Fantasy Season must be made by noon on Saturday, 17 February 2018.
(iii) Weekly score predictions to be posted or send via PM to reach me at least 2 hours before the game starts.
(iv) Entrants must make a minimum of 50 constructive posts in the MyBB Super Rugby threads during the season.
(v) The winner will be the highest ranked entrant after the Super Rugby Final on 4 August 2018 has been decided and is based on:
- (a) Points earned;
- (b) If (a) is tied then: Correct winners predictions;
- (c) If (b) and (c) are tied then: Correct spot on margin predictions.
- (d) If still a tie then a lucky draw will determine the winner of the tied pool of entrants.

5. General:
(i) I will maintain the list of entrants, their choices and the points on a spreadsheet that can be easily audited and I will publish the updated rankings at least weekly.
(ii) To maintain the secrecy of your selections, you can PM me your picks. I will only publish the 3 conference picks per entrant after the entry closing date.

I can't see lightning striking twice again for me I'm afraid!
Chances are good that I'll probably win this year. Second isn't that bad however and is something you can try and achieve with this competition.
