UK: There was no outright match-winner but there were a number of successful tries in Toshiba UK’s recent Six Nations Challenge competition.
The big £100,000 top prize to correctly predict the outcomes of the games in the prestigious tournament went unclaimed, but three Toshiba customers still picked up prizes.
Tony Murphy, of Semple & McKillop Ltd, won two tickets to a 2015 Rugby World Cup game, including hotel accommodation, Adrian Montague, of Mott MacDonald, won two tickets to an England Autumn International game at Twickenham in 2014 and Graeme Fox, of Specialist Mechanical Services picked up a Toshiba tablet computer.
David Dunn, general manager of Toshiba Air Conditioning, said: “Congratulations to our winners, and thanks to everyone who took part in the competition. Congratulations also to Ireland on a successful and exhilarating campaign. To finish on the same points as England, and then win on the slenderest of margins on points difference, provided a thrilling end to the tournament.
He added: “If only there had been a Frenchman who could kick a ball through the sticks, it could all have been so different. But at least there was some consolation for England in winning the Triple Crown.”
