A super computer has predicted every result this autumn and here are the exact scorelines you can expect from week one
London-based QBE have used a complex mathematical formula to simulate each of the 22 autumn matches 10,000 times and come up with a predicted exact scoreline.
A wide range of variables have been taken into account, including the number of tries, kicks and conversions scored by teams, the caps of each captain, up to date world ranking position and home/away advantage.
Their forecast for this weekend’s other Tests are as follows:
Wales 20 Australia 24
Scotland 31 Samoa 22
England 38 Argentina 21
Ireland 20 South Africa 20
France 16 New Zealand 35
Italy 20 Fiji 27
Matthew Crane, executive director of QBE Europe, said: “The science behind the Predictor is tried and tested and one of the tools we use to help businesses understand their risks and mitigate against them.
“It’s not about knowing what will happen, it’s about being prepared for what could happen.
“While Wales are predicted to have a difficult time in the Autumn, they also have a history of pulling the unlikely out of the bag.
“Anything can happen, that’s why you’ve always got to have a back-up plan, whether you’re a business or a rugby team.”
