Predictions Game!!

Well, we have a first tonight.... We have a no-show of our scheduled guests results! We arranged on Monday for someone to play, as usual, the cut off was 6pm on Weds, however, I totally forgot about it (as did David!) so we extended the deadline til today (Thursday) at 6pm but still only 2 sets of scores..... No hassle or moaning about it, we all lead our lives and sometimes these things don't come off, but it does however leave me in a quandry..... Do we play with only myself and David, and the guests lose out on this weeks points, or do we have a week off?

Anyway. We have some results to check on!!! John Lenihan was having his second run as a guest last week, trying to better his previous score (which if I remember correctly was 2!)

1 – Newcastle vs Wasps – Rich -15 – 32 – (Wasps by 17) - John – 15 – 21 (Wasps by 6) – David – 15 – 38 (Wasps by 23) Actual score - 23 - 23 DRAW - No Points!

Which makes this weeks scoreline -
  1. Rich - 4
  2. David - 3
  3. John - 1
And the running total stands at - 
  1. Guests – 80
  2. Rich – 78
  3. David – 54
So here we are at this weeks games..... 
And I've decided what to do!!
I'm going to use a random number generator, in turn, for each game, courtesy of This Link. The numbers are set between 5 points and 50. It's far from ideal, but it is a more hi-tech way of picking numbers than David's next door neighbours cat (private joke.....)
Saints v Quins - David - 26-15 (Saints by 11) - Rich - 30 - 10 (Saints by 20) - guest - 38 - 7 (Saints by 31)

France v Wales - David -  26-18 (France by 8) - Rich - 21 - 25 (Wales by 4) - guest - 38 - 36 (France by 2)

STOP THE PRESS!!!!
Eliot (who was the guest this week - on Twitter @Eliotm79) emailed me earlier to say that he sent the scores across on Weds evening, but it appears they have disappeared into the ether, however, as I received the scores pre-kick off tonight, I've decided to include his scores!! We'll keep the random ones in too just to see how they do! But here are Eliot's picks!!
Saints vs Quins 24-15 Saints by 9
Ospreys vs Leinster 16-23 Leinster by 7
Scotland vs Italy 26-14 Scotland by 12
France vs Wales 28-20 France by 8
London Welsh vs London Irish 13-33 LI by 20
Leicester vs Sale 16-6 Leicester by 10
Exeter vs Bath 27-20 Chiefs by 7
Ireland vs England 10-16 Eng by 6
Wasps vs Gloucester 21-11 Wasps by 10
Zebre vs Dragons 9-16 Newport by 7
Some of those results aren't too far fetched, which is a little worrying! So as David and myself rue the possibility of being beaten by a random number generator, I'll sign out!!! Til next week!!
RCK!
