Prediction League Is Back

By Andrew Collins
August 26 2008ís famous prediction is back up and running for the forthcoming season 08/09. Think you know the Cardiff Blues? Good at evaluating teams? Take on reigning champlgwt@castlebar and see if you can beat his score of 149.

For those of you new to the site, or to the idea of the Prediction League, here's a quick bit of info into how it works...

  • All of Cardiff Blues' fixtures are posted up on this site, and can be found on the left hand menu under ‘Cardiff Blues' in the first menu box.
  • You will need an account, but it is of course 100% FREE to play, while your account also means you can become a poster on our Message Board.
  • Once you're signed in, click on My Predictions. Here you can see, make and edit all you're upcoming predictions, while also take a look at how close you were in games gone by.
  • You can edit your predictions as many times as you like up until the kick off, when the prediction will be locked.
  • So, as a bit of advice, make your predictions for the whole season, and then edit it as you go along - that way, even if you forget to change it, at least you have a prediction entered, otherwise it's becomes registered as 0-0.

Then, sit back and enjoy watching the Blues win (Hopefully!), and see how close your prediction was. Then the scoring in the Prediction League Table works as follows;

  • 1 point for correct result. (Called a draw on the league table)
  • 10 points for the correct score. (Called a win on the league table)
  • 4 Points for the correct home/away score or within 3 points.
  • 3 Points for guessing the home/away score within 4-6 points.
  • 2 Points for guessing the home/away score within 7-10 points.

But most of all, the Prediction League provides a good bit of fun for Cardiff Blues and rugby fans in general. So why not get involved right away?

The fixtures are already up for you to start playing, and the first fixture is this Friday's match against Northampton Saints, so get you're results for that match in before 7.30pm.
