    This is how stupid rugby is.
    I've just looked at the table in 6 nations and realised, cos of the bonus points system, you can win all 5 matches (grandslam) and not finish top of the table.

    Currently
    England 10 points.
    Wales 8.

    If we beat England next by a small margin, they'll get a point for losing.

    So table will look like this
    Wales 12 pts
    England 11 pts

    If we win the last 2 games without BP and England win the final 2 games picking up a BP in each the final table will look like

    P W L PTS

    England 5 4 1 21
    Wales 5 5 0 20

    What kind of sport rewards a team for losing?

    If you win a grand slam you get 3 bonus points to stop that from happening.

    I'd leave it there. Exactly the sort of inaccurate crap that gets seized on. It could "go viral".

    Bonus points should only come in to play if you win the game..not up to speed with the rugby but I did hear someone say France got a point when beaten by Wales ..like you said a reward for losing ..ridiculous

    You will get lynched by the sparkly hat cowboy crew for not knowing the rules of the bonus point system, saying that 99.9 % of them wouldnt know what the bonus point system is for. :hehe:

    Leave it on and let us know what happens :hehe:

    I think the idea is that you reward teams for not getting thrashed, or for keeping going when defeat is inevitable so there's some excitement til the end of the game. Teams like Italy might not win but they can make progress by reducing the margin of defeat.

    It's a bit of a "points for effort" situation, I guess...

    It's sort of on a par with the away goals rule in football. At least, the intention is the same - to encourage teams to attack.

    Ok I sort of feel bad about this as poor Nugent is clearly losing his mind.

    A year ago in a rugby thread I asked the very same question as Nugent has here. The reply I got was as follows.

    Of course you can't.
    4pts for a win
    1pt for the 4 tries
    3pts for winning grandslam

    Low scoring grandslam winners...23pts.
    Big scoring second placers 21pts

    Guess who was the supplier of the information.....yes you guessed it, Nugent:coat:
