SALE SHARKS FANTASY RUGBY 2017-18

Good Evening lady and gentle Sharks.

Fantasy rugby returns for the new season. If you're interested in joining, read on.

Please PM me your teams.

I'm doing things a bit differently this year behind the scenes. Hopefully, if the technology allows, all updates SHOULD be taken care of online, and reasonably quickly! I'll post a link after the first game of the season.

SALE SHARKS FANTASY RUGBY 2017-18: RULES


1. THE TEAM

Pick 15 players from the list below.

Your 15 must comprise...
Forwards: 2 props, 1 hooker, 2 second row, 3 Back Row
Backs: 1 scrum half, 1 fly half, 2 centres, 2 wings, 1 full back.

You can enter a XV at any point during the season* - but only one team per person. You can change your team as much as you like up to 3 p.m. on Saturday September 2nd 2017 , but will be allowed no substitutions once the season begins, until the 'transfer window'. If one of your XV is injured...tough!

The 'transfer window' will be after the middle round of European Fixtures. During this period, you may make up to 5 changes to your team. When the 'transfer window' closes, no more changes may be made for the remainder of the season.

Remember to give your team a name.

* Team must be selected before the kick off of the next match to be played in order to qualify for points from that match.

2. POINTS

Any points scored by your players, in all Sale Sharks competitive matches (Aviva Premiership, Anglo-Welsh Cup, European Cup, Play-offs/GP Finals) will count towards their total - appearances for any other team (Jets, Internationals, Baa Baas, etc) will not count.

Players who play a full 80 minutes: 7 POINTS
Players who start the match but are substituted at any time during the game: 4 POINTS*
Players who come on as a replacement at any point**: 3 POINTS
Player selected on bench, but does not play (excluding blood bins/HIA): 1 POINT
Blood bin/HIA replacement: 1 POINT per interchange***

Yellow card: LOSE 5 POINTS
Two yellows and/or red: LOSE 10 POINTS
Blood bin/HIA: LOSE 1 POINT each time a player leaves the fray.

** A player 'forced' to leave the pitch temporarily due to another player's sin bin (e.g. a backrow forward leaves because a prop has to come on for scrums) will not lose points as a result.

Official 'Man of the Match' (if named in the Official site's match report): 10 POINTS

If a player is selected in a position other than his 'listed' position below (e.g. if Eiffion plays wing or AJ MacGinty plays hooker) then his points still count.

*If a player subsequently returns to the action they will be awarded a total of 5 POINTS
** A player 'forced' to leave the pitch temporarily due to another player's sin bin (e.g. a backrow forward leaves because a prop has to come on for scrums) will not lose points as a result. The 'prop' who temporarily covers the sin-bin scrums will gain 1 POINT.
*** If a player comes on from the bench more than once during the game (e.g. first as a 'blood bin' then later as a replacement) they gain points for each appearance (e.g. 4 in total, for the example quoted).


3. THE PLAYERS

PROPS:
Halani 'Aulkia, Diogo Ferreira, James Flynn, Ross Harrison, Willgriff John, Eifion Lewis-Roberts, Ciaran Parker, Alexandru Taurus, Jake Pope

HOOKER:
Nick Dolly, Marc Jones, Cameron Neild, Rob Webber, Curtis Langdon

SECOND ROW:
Bryn Evans, George Nott, Andrei Ostrikov, Matt Postlethwaite

SECOND ROW/BACK ROW
Josh Beaumont

BACK ROW:
Ben Curry, Tom Curry, TJ Ioane, Sam Moore, Laurence Pearce, Jono Ross, David Seymour, Josh Strauss

SCRUM HALF:
Will Cliff, Faf De Klerk, Matt Sturgess

FLY HALF:
AJ MacGinty, James O'Connor

CENTRES:
Luke James, Sam James, Mark Jennings, Johnny Leota

WING/CENTRE:
Will Addison

WINGS:
Josh Charnley, Paolo Odogwu, Aaron Reed, Denny Solomona

WING/FULL BACK
Byron McGuigan

FULL BACK:
Mike Haley

The positions above are as players are listed on the official website, a number are noted as their position being "Back Row". Therefore the three positions are combined. A number of players are also listed as dual positions (e.g. Josh Beaumont is listed as a Lock/Back Row). These players are listed separately above, and may be selected in either position.

I'll enter. I was just biding my time to post a team till after the pre-season games so I don't pick injured players or the like.

Given MGS' response, and the fact that I too have entered, given my previous record I would suggest that you are at least guaranteed Silver Yukon.

Last bump before kick off tomorrow.

Now up to a tremendous ten.

Anyone who misses the deadline of kick off tomorrow CAN still enter, but points will only count from the next game.

First game of the season saw a strong fantasy showing from several players - most notably AJ MacGinty, helped by 5/5 conversions.


Faith in AJ, gives his two backers - GoS & 2007dwain an early lead.

Hopefully this works(!), full results and tables here:

Right, the less said about that, the better.

The AJ backers are steaming ahead in the early season.

2007dwain and GOS continue to build a lead by backing AJ's kicking. Strinesian leading the chasing pack.
