    Right lets put it on the line an see who can predict the going on over in France. This should be easy considering the level of expertise we have here. Scores out of 50. Im expecting a few to get full points!

    Winner: (5points)

    Runner Up: (5 points)

    3rd place:(2 points)

    4th Place:(2 points)

    Top points Scorer:(5points)

    Top try scorer:(5points)

    Referee for the final:(2 points)

    Top 3 in each Pool (3/2/1points)

    Pool A

    Pool B

    Pool C

    Pool D

    Tie break question. Minute of first try in first game. Closest wins.

    If the points / try scorer are tied then all players in first/ tied first get awarded full points
