How is the winner of the Competition chosen?

8. One valid entry who correctly selects ‘The player scoring the last Blues try, The final Blues score and final opponents score will win the Competition prize (“Prize”).

Should entrants not select the correct answer to all three questions, the below scoring system is put in place:

  • 50 point maximum will be awarded to each of the three (3) items the fan is entering (these include last Blues try, final Blues score, final opponent score)
  • To gain 50 points, fans must get the score 100% correct. For each point they’re off they lose a point all the way 0.
  • With the selection of last try the fan receives 50 points if they guess the player correctly and 0 points if they guess incorrectly.
  • If the fan correctly guesses all three items they receive the full 150 pts.

The entrant with the most amounts of points will win the Competition prize (“Prize”).

In the unlikely event that multiple entries score the same number of points or guess all three correct answers, the winner will be chosen based on the entrant who entered the competition first.

9. The Prize is valued at NZ$150 and comprises:

• One (1) signed Blues Jersey by the entire 2020 playing squad
