Well Super League is underway (without our presence, sadly) and, after the first two matches Hull FC top the table. Bongser posted his score predictions on the relevant thread on the Wire board earlier and, as usual, didn’t shine!

Late notice (CHAMPIONSHIP BEGINS TOMORROW) but last season, took part (along with several other Leythers) in the Championship Prediction League that was run by Paul Walker on the Bulls’ board (Bongser was his usual mediocre self). Not yet heard if Paul will be running a C1 comp this season but, for completeness and as we are back in the Champ (for now!) wondered if anyone would be interested in a Championship League (with a slight Leigh slant) this year. Bongser is happy to do the admin if sufficient interest is shown in the first couple or so of rounds.

This is his proposed format & scoring system:
The results of the six Championship matches of each round are to be predicted;
i) Correct winning team earns the poster two points

ii) Correct winning margin (to the abovementioned team) earns a further three points

iii) Exact scoreline (with correct winners) earns a further TWENTY points

iv) Regarding point i): A correctly predicted draw earns a further five points

v) All six winners (or (obviously more) drawers) a further TWENTY points

vi) All six winning (correct winner)margins (unlikely) a further ONE HUNDRED points

vii) All six correct scores would earn disqualification as the poster obviously has a time machine.

viii) In the event of a short term postponements (eg a match put back to the following Tuesday) that match will count wholly to that week’s predictions. Longer term postponements will (eventually) be scored on the original prediction but will not retrospectively score regarding points v) or vi).
ix) In the event of indefinite postponements the “All six” in points v) & vi) will become “All five” or “All four” as appropriate. Points v) & vi) will not apply to three or less games, however.
x) Each round, a single “attendance” point will be awarded to every participant that week.
xi) Only the first post of any participant will count though posts may be edited up to the first kick off time.

There will also be a bonus question each week, usually, though not necessarily, with a Leigh slant. A correct answer will earn five points.

On novelty occasions further bonus points may be made available though the criteria will be stated on the original post of that week’s thread.

Finally, the highest scorer (joint highest if so) will receive a further 25 points (each) pat on the head bonus.

Difficult, but the possibility of a VERY high score for any poster on any one week should keep the league in a state of flux right to the end. It would also mean that, for example, were HRJ not online in Dorset for a week and unable to participate, or another poster was late to join in, all would not be lost.

All posters welcome (including visitors from other forums). First post from any poster will be the only one counted. Bongser’s decision is (however misguided) final. Entries before kick-off times please (miss a KO and the remaining games will still count – coz Bongser’s a nice bloke).

For posters’ convenience, a template like the one in Bongser’s next post (below) will be provided.

Leigh playing Toronto is one of those novelty events so this week there will be extra points available!
