Statisticians Forecast Result Of Every RBS Six Nations 2016 Game


The same computer experts who successfully forecast the outcome of the majority of World Cup matches are back again and this time they reckon they’ve worked out what will happen in the 2016 RBS Six Nations.

The London-based statistical analysts reckon Ireland will start with a win this weekend against Wales and go on to lift the title for an unprecedented three years in a row. The predictions are made as a result of research carried out on behalf of London-based insurers QBE.

The statisticians have used a complex mathematical formula to try to predict the exact score of every match in the 2016 tournament, which is being widely viewed by many as one of the most open for years.

Their World Cup success rate this year was 83 per cent. Amongst the results they forecast back then were:

South Africa 23 Wales 20 (actual score 23-19)

France 33 Italy 14 (actual score 32-10)

Ireland 40 Romania 8 (actual score 44-10)

Scotland 37 USA 12 (actual score 39-6).
