Then put your knowledge to the test with Mount Sion’s great new sports predictor league which will run over the course of the summer, take 20 sports events and pick your best bet, points are awarded for a winning pick and a league table kept. You can pick from the four options given on the entry form or choose to select ‘ anyone else ‘ meaning you get the rest of the field, entry is €10 with a top prize of €500 plus the title of the club’s top punter!
