Megamug Advent Prize Competition #3

Tomorrow I’m off to the Varsity match at Twickers with some lads and, I believe, a lass. Megamug Prize Competition number 3 is simple. What will the combined total of the scores of Oxford and Cambridge be at the end of the game.

In keeping with the rules laid down by my drinking buddies in the Tower in Lincoln when we watch internationals the nearest guess wins but not if the score is higher than your guess. In other words if you guess 33 points and the total is 34 then a person picking 40 points would be the winner. Also if the number has already been used you can’t have it. Entries close at kick-off. My game, my rules.

Good luck.

  1. Having been forced to play rugby at school, I’m not going to take part in this one on the grounds that it brings back very painful (in all senses of the word) memories. By the way, who won competition #2?

  2. 42 was the winning score. Although I said only one person per number there were two people who guessed 42 and they were both called Paul so they both get a prize. Addresses via email please.

  3. Hi Tref, Great day yesterday but … wasn’t the final score 26 – 19 (a win for Oxford) i.e. 45 points in total? (maybe it was the trip in that lift at Twickenham that has caused confusion 🙂
    cheers

    1. Just checked and you’re absolutely right. On that basis Chris Young is the winner though don’t think it affects the result of our onsite betting.
