Yes, it is completely free. You do not need to buy any products or pay anything to sign up and play.
Pick a winner: For each match, if you correctly pick the winning team, you will receive 5 points.
Pick a draw: If you correctly pick a draw you will receive 25 points.
A draw is worth 25 points. Match results are determined by the score after 80 minutes (or thereabouts) of play. If extra time is added to get a result (such as in the Final), the score at 80 minutes will determine points and rankings for the Round.
Sharing results: Each week you can share your results to Facebook from the previous week via the share link on the Game Page. Each week that you do this you will receive 2 points added to your current week points tally.
Sharing your picks: You can also share your picks to Facebook for the current week via the share link on the Game Page. Each week you do this you will receive 2 points added to your current week points tally.
You can only get the extra points for each of the above shares one time per week. So, if you share your results and picks each week you will receive 4 bonus points. Sharing the same results and picks multiple times will not give you any more than 4 bonus points.
Please refer to the terms and conditions for full details.

Weekly winners: Every week your score will determined by rank 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 ranking and not enough prizes for each, PlaceMakers will conduct a random draw from all of those top ranked participants. 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 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 and Supplier winners: The Staff and Supplier winner has the highest total score out of all Staff and Supplier participants.
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.
If you’re not able to claim your price for whatever reason, or the prize is unable to be allocated, within three months, the prize will be forfeited.
The grand prize (trip to the 2019 Japan World Cup Final) will be given away at the conclusion of the 2017 Super Rugby Final. For every point that a participant scores, this 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.
