SuperBru Points Scoring System

Now that our NRL and Superugby pools are hotting up, we thought we should probably delve into the scoring system a little.

Win Point (WP)
The meat and bread of SuperBru. You'll score a Win Point if you correctly predict the outcome of a game (win/loss/draw), irrespective of margin.

The core Win Point value is usually 1 pt, but it does vary through the different stages of a tournament, increasing in value as picking the winner becomes harder.

UK Construction PMI - March 2014

The UK Construction PMI hit 62.5 in March, only marginally down from 62.6 in February and still far above the 50 mark that denotes growth.

Economists had predicted a rise to 63.0, however the drop was largely down to slower civil engineering activity after emergency fixes during February's floods boosted work.

The rise in residential construction was one of the sharpest experienced over the past ten years at 64.2.
