Our first crack at a RWC pool play game is complete, and we hope it provided a bit of a rooting interest where otherwise it may have been lacking.
For clarity, the final rules called for contestants to be awarded 5 bonus points for picking the actual try or points leader per pool. 3 points were given if a contestant picked the top points or try scorer out of players selected.
The true top try and points scorers selected, thus scoring 5 bonus points: England's Chris Ashton (tries), Australia's Adam Ashley-Cooper (tries) and New Zealand's Israel Dagg (tries), Ireland's Ronan O'Gara (points) and South Africa's Morne Steyn (points).
The guys who led out of those selected, thus scoring 3 bonus points: Samoa's Alesana Tuilagi (tries), England's Johnny Wilkinson (points) and France's Dmitri Yachvili (points).
The points accrued by team selections are the same as shown in the standings
