Guess The Attendance: And the winner is...............


What good looks like

Has anyone seen JDH/JDH1?

So the end of an eventful season and it is now time to announce the Guess The Attendance competition results.

At our last home match against Hartpury we had 960 official punters meaning that closest was sheffieldsmills (3 points), second with two points was Wildwillie and Madtyke, scoring yet again, took the remaining one point for third.

The final table is shown below.

A few points:

1) Strangely JDH/JDH1, our defending champion, scored a consistent nulle points this season. Anyone seen him as I am awaiting the return of the solid gold trophy?

2) yeldor again burnt all his matches in the early part of the season, failing to score at the business end.

3) almo confirmed why you should not take any notice of his advice, as he only scored one point

4) Sheffield came late to the party but still got a win - think what would have happened with a full season of guesses

5) The flagmeister was probably the most efficient of all guessers as I think he made three guesses and two were winners

 

So to the most important point. In the event of a draw the closest in the last game will decide the winner. Albert was 392 off and Hornchurch was 349 off.

So I hereby declare Hornchurch as the worthy winner.

 

Now if only JDH will return the trophy I will arrange the usual all-expenses paid trip to Cannes: currently checking Prince Harry's availabilty to present the award.

 

FINAL TABLE
Hornchurch, Albert 9 points
opus 7.5 points
Madtyke, WPL, LCSF 6 points
yeldor 5.5 points
WW, Redcar 5 points
John R, Bobba 4 points
Tower, Sheffield 3 points
Sidestep, Billy ba 2 points
almo 1 point
JDH and others nulle point

I take my prize with humility and pride and start by thanking the adjudicator,the community and my family etc etc.

That said, as the gold cup seem to have gone missing could I just take the hard cash please? Still presented by Prince Harry of course. Or maybe Prince William???


Actually, I am quite chuffed so thank you.

I'm not sure there was any need to break the tie given that there isn't a prize but I hope that Mr Hornchurch enjoys his moment in the sun.

If I had all the money I've spent on drink ..... I'd spend it on drink.

Hello Albert

I will enjoy thank you but I must say you sound a tiny bit grumpy .

Not really sir, but an honourable tie seemed a satisfactory outcome for something which is only meant to be a bit of fun!

It will be a challenge at the start of next season (if we survive) to know where to pitch our guesses. You can only imagine that, perhaps barring the visit of the Falcons, crowds of 2,000+ will soon become a distant memory.

I'm afraid rules is rules, Albert, and you will find them on the LH side under "Site Help".
More than my job's worth to not play by the rules.

There has been a lot of gloom about our Rugby, quite rightly so, but come on Albert this was meant to be a bit of fun.

Are you sure it's Mr. Hornchurch who should be enjoying the moment in the sun?

As I said. Anyway, I shall go and estivate for a while, not that the weather is remotely summery.

Some say he has a Tykes flag with team signatures on.
Others say that he's doing the same to the Carnegie flag,
All we know is that he's called Leeds carnegie signed flag.

Do I get a non solid gold replica upon return? I think my fall from grace was mainly down to being too optimistic!

Trophy in the post...
