How close did the supercomputer come with its predictions today…

QBE Business Insurance have given predicting the Autumn Internationals a go.

The insurance company are global leaders in calculating insurance, however instead of predicting the impact upon businesses across varying potential catastrophes they have decided to predict the scores of the 22 autumn internationals.

The actuaries at QBE have used a complex mathematical formula to simulate every match this November 10,000 times, resulting in a precise scoreline being generated for each.

The variables range from the obvious to the obscure, including the number of caps won by individual players, weather conditions and world ranking position.

Here’s how close they came (not very):
