Weekly winners: Each week your score will be determined by rank based on total points scored for that week only (not a cumulative total score of all your points for the competition to date). The highest score has the highest rank. If there are multiple participants with equal top rankings and not enough allocated prizes for each round, PlaceMakers will conduct a random draw from all of those top ranked participants and the first drawn participant/s against the allocated number of prizes will be awarded the prize. If there are more prizes than participants at the top, the next highest scoring participant(s) also receives a prize and so on, until all prizes for the Round have been awarded.

Branch winners: The Branch winner has the highest score in each PlaceMakers branch at the end of the season. If there are multiple Branch prizes for any one round, the same process as outlined above in Weekly winners will determine who will receive the prizes.

Staff Winners: The Staff winner has the highest total score out of all Staff participants.

Suppliers: Suppliers are eligible to be weekly winners and branch winners.

How can I win the Grand Prize Trip to one of The Great Rugby Playing Nations of my choice?

The Grand prize will be given away at the conclusion of the 2018 Super Rugby Final. For every point that a participant scores, will give them one entry into the draw for the Grand prize. So, if a participant scores 50 points over the course of the competition, he/she will have 50 entries into the draw.

This means that anyone who scores a point has a chance of winning the Grand Prize, but those with more points will have a higher chance of winning.

How will I know if I’m a winner?

All winners will receive an email on the Tuesday following the round in which they won a prize. This email will tell you what your prize is and how to claim it. You can also visit the Winners Page on the website.

What happens if I am not able to claim my prize?

If you’re not able to claim your prize for whatever reason, or the prize is unable to be allocated, within three months, the prize will be forfeited.

Where do I pick up my prize?

If I win a team merchandise prize, will I receive the team I back?
