For a Rugby Union game, what's the smallest score that allows you to say that there must
have been at least four
(converted or not) tries?
"20" isn't the correct answer, because you could have managed it with two converted tries and two penalties. "21" isnīt it either, for three converted tries suffice, and "22" also doesnīt work, for you can manage it with less than 4 tries.
NB. The scoring is: 3 for a drop-goal or penalty kick. 5 for a try, and 7 for a converted try (A converted try is when a try has been scored, and the team that scored kicks the ball between the posts.)
(In reply to re(2): Big hint, almost a spoiler
by Old Original Oskar!)
Would not a score of 14-14 require a total of four tries?
14 can only be accomplished with two converted tries 5+2 + 5+2. If both teams have a score of 14, then there would be a total of four tries scored.
