We've had an "unriggable raffle" for each of Ireland's Six Nations clashes this season and Saturday's decider in Murrayfield will be no exception.

 
This week the good folks at RugbyWarfare.com have kindly offered a premium tri-blend tee from their excellent clothing range as the prize for our winner.

BONUS PRIZE
 
This evening at 9pm on our Facebook page we have the final chance to qualify for the RugbyWarfare competition.  There are 10 spaces left on the "unriggable raffle" grid and the first to leave the correct comment on the post will fill them.
 
HOWEVER....the good folks at Rugby Warfare have kindly offered a SECOND premium tri-blend tee as a bonus prize, so here is how we have chosen to award it...
 
Instead of repeating a phrase as your comment tonight, you will be asked to give your prediction for the final score of tomorrow's big Scotland v Ireland clash at Murrayfield.  While only the first 10 will qualify for the grid, EVERYONE who leaves a prediction (following the guidelines laid out below) will have a chance to win the bonus prize.
 
Here are the rules for the bonus prize...
 
  1. Closing time for entries is midnight.
  2. You must make it clear which team you think will get which score.  For example "14-34" will not be enough.  You must say something like "Scotland-14 Ireland-34" or even "S-14 I-34" will do. 
  3. Your comment MUST remain unedited for it to qualify.
  4. Only one comment per separate Facebook account is allowed.  Where we see more than one entry from the same account, we will delete all but the first one posted.
  5. Entries which don't follow these guidelines will be deleted and thus cannot qualify for the "unriggable raffle" either.
  6. The first correct score on the timeline will be deemed the winner.  In the event nobody is correct, then the first one the timeline to be 1 point out will win, then the first to be 2 points out, and so on until a winner is found.

Best of luck!

The following extra rules are unfortunate but necessary.

  • The winner will be announced on this blog post Sunday morning.  
  • The winner has until 12 noon on the following Friday to contact us via Facebook private message (by the account they used to qualify) otherwise the prize will be put on offer to one of the other entrants in a manner to be determined by the organising committee.
  • only one entry per separate Facebook account is allowed each day, but it’s ok to enter once on each of the four days
  • each window closes 3 hours after posting – if all of the spots are not all taken, the extra ones will be allocated in a manner to be determined by the competition organisers.
  • when you are asked to leave an “exact phrase” this means you can use the phrase with OR without the quotes; also, since speed is a factor in the competition we will make allowances for typos once it is clear a decent attempt has been made to repeat the phrase
  • for some windows “edited” Facebook comments will not be permitted as entries…this will be outlined as part of the post where it applies
  • for transparency purposes your qualifying comment must remain on the social media post until at least two hours of completion of the rugby match that is to determine the competition winner.
  • be aware that Facebook have been known to display comments in a random order on the web; as competition organisers we will do all we can to ensure the timeline is properly followed in each window.
  • entrants’ positions on the grid are set and not open for discussion, nor are any other final decisions made by the competition organisers.


If you have any questions about the competition and/or its format or would like to sponsor one down the line, feel free to email we'd be happy to help.

BE SURE AND HAVE A GO AND BEST OF LUCK!!! JLP
