It was a result that had England fans renewing their vows of love for their country. Many had forecast a victory for Eddie Jones’ men, but only the bravest would have been so optimistic as to call a 36-point margin.
Whether you put it down to outstanding rugby knowledge or just downright balls of steel, we’re extending a big MatchPint congratulations to Jono from Stroud who predicted, with clinical precision, England to win by 36 - the only person in the entire country.
Jono claims his free pint in his local, The Lamb Inn in Stroud.
As a result, he’s won a pair of tickets to Wales v England later this month courtesy of Guinness and he’s “so stoked” to be heading to the game.
“It was an awesome result for England”, he said of that remarkable prediction. “I watched their first game and knew they were on form. I felt that it would be an easy win for them against France. The lads met my expectations and more....a bit like my free pint of Guinness.”
The Guinness Pint Predictor has been a rip-roaring success with over 10,000 pints won in the first two weekends of the Guinness Six Nations. Anyone can play, simply predict the winners of each fixture during the tournament via the MatchPint app, if one of your calls is correct within seven points, you too will win a free pint.
