"SmartSweep" is an opportunity to enter a sweep with a difference.  Not just "pick a winner" out of a hat, but use your skills and knowledge of international rugby to pick the match points differential and win higher sweep points.  You are invited to join this non-profit sweep and pit your wits and knowledge against all those other hopefuls with a chance for the prize money.


SmartSweep is non-profit, and the prize funds depend on the number of members.  So, if you have some friends or colleagues who you feel would be interested in participating as members, please feel free to forward these details to them.  The more members, the larger the prize money.


For each of the 48 matches in the Rugby World Cup Tournament, you try to pick the winner and the points differential at Match Full-Time.  You can update your selections as the competition unfolds and check how you are doing in the Sweep here on the members' web site.


Sweep Points are awarded on the following basis:

-  Winning Team and Points Differential > +/-5 .............. 3 Sweep Points
-  Winning Team and Points Differential  +/- 5 ............. 5 Sweep Points
-  Winning Team AND Exact Match Points Differential ...... 7 Sweep Points
-  Selecting a Drawn Match ...................................... 9 Sweep Points


The winner(s) of the Sweep will be the highest Sweep Points scorer(s) after all of the 48 matches of the Rugby World Cup Tournament competition are completed.



If you wish to change your selected Points Differentials as you see the form of the tournament develop, you can do so as often as you like, so long as they are received by us before close of business on the day immediately before the respective matches.



Your Membership Fee of 20 by post or 21 by credit card (secure server connection through PayPal) gives you the opportunity to participate in the Sweep and to pit your knowledge of international rugby (and a bit of luck) against all those other hopefuls!


See Membership Incentive below for details of the scheme to reduce your Membership Fee.



Total takings minus actual out-of-pocket costs of running the sweep = Prize Money, distributed as follows:  (Costs consist only of credit card payment processing and web site costs.)


1st Place............. 50%
