Premier Showdown - Mar 2-4

March 4, 2013

A storming victory for Dale Johnson last weekend, but surely it's too late to turn this around?

Joining us for the next round of games is Jim Allen who is from Newcastle, of the English variety.

He tells us: "I support Newcastle United, I work in the civil service in the fourth most boring job in the world. I live in Newcastle, and dislike Sunderland and Liverpool."

Game on!

For each round of matches we invite someone to represent the Rest of the World and take on Press Pass' Tommy Smyth and ESPN journalist Dale Johnson in our predictions game.

Points are then awarded as follows:
• Three points for a correct result and scoreline
• One point for a correct result

After the weekend's scores are in and the Showdown result has been worked out, the winning pundit receives three points for their season's total. Should the challenger win, the total is added to the Rest of the World tally. In the case of a draw, the points are shared.

Victory for the Rest of the World with a game to go. They've almost got Tommy back in view.
