5 Nations contest: Update

5 Nations contest: Update

I ran a contest to poll readers for their predictions on the final 5 Nations
standings. These are the averages calculated from callers rankings of the five teams.

 France   1.4
 England  2.3
 Scotland 3.1
 Wales    3.5
 Ireland  4.5

These are the actual standings to date:

                 P   W   D   L   F   A   Pts
France           3   3   0   0   82  57   6
England          3   2   0   1  107  42   4
Wales            3   1   0   2   81  72   2
Scotland         3   1   0   2   70  85   2
Ireland          4   1   0   3   57 141   2

So it seems to maintain the predictions Wales and Scotland will have to switch
places.  That means Scotland will just lose to France (3 points) while Wales will get
clobbered by England (30 points).  I'll publish the name of the winners following the
last matches so that you can bask in your glory and even get a free beer if your in
Victoria.
