You must create an ESPN account. You can create one for free by following the on-screen instructions.
When you have selected your team, save as instructed and then click on the ‘Leagues’ tab. Our league is called ‘Tadley Tigers RFC’ and our League Code is 1317931-57842
Once you’ve registered your team (or teams), please pass your entry money in an envelope with your child’s name, their Tadley Tigers age group and Fantasty Rugby Team name to Scott Cooper (Usually found helping with U11’s coaching)
Simply pick a team of 15 players from the full squad lists of all the teams competing in the competition: England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales.
Your team must include:
• 3 x Front-row forwards
• 2 x Second-row forwards
• 3 x Back-row forwards
• 1 x Scrum-half
• 1 x Fly-half
• 2 x Centres
• 3 x Outside backs
You may select a maximum of four players from each nation.
You also need to specify a designated Kicker - the only player in your team who will score points for penalties and conversions. Choose wisely!
You can filter the player list by team and position - or use the search function to find a specific player. Use the + / - buttons next to each player name to add / remove players from your team.
When you're happy with your selections, remember to give your team a name before submitting. There were some very inventive team names last year!
Before the tournament begins, a transfer amnesty is in place, allowing you to make unlimited changes to each of your teams.
Once the tournament begins, you will have three free transfers to use between each round of fixtures.
You may make additional transfers on top of your allocation of three free transfers, however for each additional transfer you will be docked two penalty points in the next round.
NB: Unused transfers do not roll over
You can switch your designated Kicker as many times as you like
The transfer window will shut at the first scheduled kick-off of each round, and will re-open after the last match of each round has finished.
