The teams were competing for great prizes including talkSPORT goodies, sweet hampers, a trip for two to Celtic Manor in Newport, bottles of Champagne and of course a Pure One Mini Union Jack. Questions included a picture round of football stadiums, a music round of songs that teams come out to and other general sporting knowledge questions. We battled through the questions but we were expecting a low result and a distinct lack of prizes but amazingly we came third winning some great talkSPORT goodies and a tour of the talkSPORT studios, which we are all really excited about!
