The Round bonus point (for getting every result correct) may not apply to every round it seems. I will do an update between Rounds as for the most part there is a day or twos gap between each of them. I suggest you at least complete predictions of a Round at a time as the games are coming thick and fast. You can always change them if you don't 'lock' them.
Anyway, I don't want to preach to the converted which may well be the case.
Still time to join too.
As it stands Buoy got it exactly right and scored a full bonus point plus 0.25 of a bonus for being withing 5 points. David meanwhile got 0.25 for being 4 points out. If England hadn't scored that last try things would have been so different......for me anyway.
At least I had the consolation of having a small wager on Fiji with a +25 points handicap.
The TDM is a tie-breaker but only as a last resort. The following is an extract from the rules.
"The leaderboard shows the total scores of players taking part in this pool. Where required, ties are broken with tie-breaking rules. Unlike on the Global Leaderboard, Bonus Points (BP) are included here.
In the event of points ties on a pool leaderboard, position is allocated on the basis of higher WP total, then higher MP total, then lower TDM. If scores are still tied after these criteria are applied, the players are adjudged to be tied. TDM is Total Distance from Margin: the sum of the differences between a player's margin predictions and the actual margins."
Thanks to RD for the advice.

I think Scotland will win tomorrow mainly because
of it being their first game. Two games in 5 days
is a lot in rugby even if Japan have made 6

The GSP (Grand Slam Points) bonus is for getting every result correct in a Round.
