Welcome to Season 7 of the Aviva Premiership fantasy rugby game.  Below are the rules of the game which must be adhered to.  If there are any situations that arise in the course of the game which are not covered by the rules, a final decision will be made by the RFU (SJE) as to how the situation will be resolved.
 
 
Senior Squads wrote:
The maximum squad size is 40 senior players.  If a team has more than 40 players in their squad then they will be fined £1 million per player over the permitted amounts per day for the first seven days. If after 7 consecutive days a team still has more than the permitted number of players then the team will be fined £2 million per player per day, and fined 1 league point per player per day for the next seven days. If after this time a team still has more than the permitted number of players in their squad, the RFU (SJE) will remove players at its discretion to bring them back under the permitted numbers. There will be no right of appeal to players being removed.

Be aware that all tier one international matches which are played during the season will count in the game, and players selected in the match day 23's for those matches will not be eligible to play for their clubs on that weekend, therefore you must give due consideration to the make-up of your squad.
Academy Rules wrote:
Each team will be allowed to have an academy squad of 20 players.  Players who are in the academy must be born on or after 1st September 1992. 

Any player, who is at any Premiership club in real life, either in their senior, academy or AASE squads, can be bid for on the domestic bidding page. Players who are at your own club in real life and are coming through the academy system must be bid for if you want them in your own academy.
Transfers wrote:

  • Domestic (other AP Teams)
    Each team has a budget to use in the purchase of players. Domestic transfers between AP clubs, regardless of nationality of player, should be negotiated between the respective managers, and then confirmed on the Domestic Transfer Confirmation Page.
  • Domestic (Championship and below)
    Each team may during the season purchase no more than 5 players from the Championship or the National Leagues. These players must be bid for on the National League Bidding page, and each bid will be considered by me on its own merits before being accepted or rejected.  No bid will be accepted until a minimum of 24 hours has elapsed from the time the bid was made, in order to afford other managers the opportunity to make a counter bid.
  • Foreign
    To make a foreign transfer (i.e. from any club outside of the AP, regardless of whether the player is English) a bid should be made on the Foreign Transfers Page, which will be considered by me against the posted guidelines for purchase prices before being accepted or rejected. No bid will be accepted until a minimum of 24 hours has elapsed from the time the bid was made, in order to afford other managers the opportunity to make a counter bid.

    There will be a summer foreign transfer window, which will run as follows.

    Open Window

    Open transfer window, teams have unlimited bids provided they have the financial resources to cover them.  Teams may only bid for one player at a time.

    The window will open from the 9th of June but only to those sides that finish 8th and below at first. They will have a week to make one signing each before the window is open to all.     

Player Releases wrote: 
Managers may choose to release players from their clubs, for which they will be offered compensation

Compensation will be paid as follows

£2 million – current international (must have played international rugby in the previous 12 months)
£1.5 million – former international
£1m – top flight experience
£0.5m – other

All released players will be deemed to have joined a Championship side and can be bid for on the National League Bidding page.
Retirements wrote:
There will be no compensation for retiring players.  Should a player who retires decide to come out of retirement and play again, then he will automatically go back to the club who he was playing for in the game when he retired.
Fixtures wrote:
There will be 22 Aviva Premiership games per season, plus the play offs. There will also be European Rugby Champions Cup, European Rugby Challenge Cup and Anglo Welsh Cup matches.  These games will take place once a week. A match thread will be put up every Monday. Home teams must be named by midnight on Tuesday. Away teams must be named by midnight on Wednesday. Failure to meet these deadlines is punishable by the addition of three match points to the oppositions final score, unless both sides fail to do so. Both teams must provide tactics by midnight on Thursday. Predictions will be open from 00:01 hours on Friday and remain open until 15:00 hours on Sunday. Managers will post the scores that they think will happen from these games (apart from games in which they are involved).  An average of all predictions will be taken, and then 0.5 points added to each teams score for each prediction that had them as the winner, and that will then be the final score.

Managers are asked to provide detail as to why they have predicted a result.  To be considered a descriptive prediction this must be a full 3 lines long when entered into the text box. 
Teams wrote:
When naming your team, not only should you put the starting XV and replacements, but also tactics that your team will employ. Results will be affected by the tactics described.

In addition, each team must have the following:-

For domestic competition at least 8 England qualified players in your match day 23, and at least 4 of those must be in your starting XV.

For European competition at least 8 England qualified players in your match day 23, and at least 6 of those must be in your starting XV.

At least 2 props and 1 hooker on the bench.

All players must be eligible (not injured or banned).

Failure to comply with these rules will result in a 1 league point deduction.

If you fail to submit a team for a match, then the other team will be automatically awarded a 30-0 bonus point win. If both teams fail to submit a team, then it will be scored as a 0-0 draw.
Injuries and Suspensions wrote:
Injuries in this game do NOT reflect real life, they will be generated by me.

Players banned in real life will be ineligible for selection in this game for the duration of the ban.

Inclusion of injured/banned players will result in them being replaced by players on the bench, and the bench not having eight players, which may result in punishment if it concerns the front-row.

Punishment for fielding an ineligible player will be loss of one match point.
Financial Rewards wrote:
There will be no rewards for the result of an individual match, instead the managers will receive cash for predicting.

£2m for descriptive predictions 
£0.25m for scores on the doors predictions
If you fail to predict without first advising me that you are unable to do so that week, you will be fined £1m for a first offence, £2m for a second offence, £3m for a third offence etc upto a maximum of £5m per fine.

If your budgets falls below minus £10 million for any reason, the administrators (SJE) will step in and players from within your squad will be released for the relevant financial compensation (foreign transfer value) in order to bring your budget back above minus £10 million.

We played shoite for 40 minutes, and I mean utter garbage. Then dominated the second 40 but made poor decisions at key moments which cost us any chance of winning the game.

Big game for both of us next weekend.

Snap. I don't know when we have them but it's not in this first block of 6 games. After we play you next week we have Saracens, Tigers, then Saints. We need a good result at your place to ake some confidence into those games.

Welsh were so bad the last time they were in the AP and look even worse this time round.

What do people think of Gareth Davies? He was named in team of the Rabo last year, got two tries against Ulster this weekend - seemed like he needs to play a few more games for Wales before he gets rated more on here?

Pretty average, scrum half is a problem position for Wales with nobody really standing out.

He's looked good when I've seen him, but haven't seen enough really - think you are right prop the more coverage from Sky the higher quite a few players in that league could get.

Good to see so many of my lads in. Centre partnership is particularly pleasing.

Matfield has had this missed
Tackle issue since back.
Still a a superb lineout forward. However age catches up with is all. He has the work rate but gets shrugged off or stepped quite a bit. Same happened to Ben Kay and Ian Jones other greats of their eras

Thought the Aussie midfielders went well Matt. Kuindrani's best game yet for Oz. Not sure on Dagg didn't think he was great. Folau and Le Roux both better in the other game for me. Brodie Retalick has to be cementing himself as the best lock around at the moment  Whistle

Also some shift by Sam Cane. Only McCaw made more tackles for the All Blacks and got an extra 40 minutes on him

Kurindrani was his best game in an Oz shirt. For me it was his decision making, he had the odd opportunity where his size had dragged in an extra defender and needed to ship it on to the free man outside. 

For me AAC is best at 13 for them, provides a better defending balance and hands.

Agree Flux, AAC easily the best option at 13.

Thought the Argie scrum was on top except that Messam try. Ayerza has had Franks and JDPs number so far. Definately best scrummaging LH in the world for me.

Ayerza easily at the moment #1, Domingo and Corbs on their day and if they stay fit better him however. Healy probably #2

As an all round LH I'd take Healy above all others. Corbs possibly a better pure scrummager then Ayerza but would take him over Domingo. Problem with Corbs & Domingo is they have done nothing for the last 2 years. Marler/Corbs (if he can get fit and playing consistently) is going to be a serious battle for England. 

Marler behind only Healy & Ayerza for me the last 12 months.

Ayerza had franks number as he does every time.
If he had a better tight head it would have been worse.

To be fair it was a poor weekend for tight heads.

Of the tri nations there is kepu( who
Has form but generally has been substandard in his career ) JDP ( who
Has gone backwards and has
The dubious honour of being most penalised s15 player and currently most penalised player in RC)and Owen Franks
( great athlete but not best scrummager but who
Has shown decent form in last 2 months of season )

It's not a
Great list and one of the only areas NH has
Any superiority

Best loosehead in the world for me is Matt Mullen , hands down. Only reason he doesn't start every game for me is that it wouldn't be fair.

Ayerza is a wicked scrummager though , He'll win you 6 points in most games.

Wasted his last name Tim Payne...

On a more serious note my loosehead pecking order when on form and fit would be....

1.Corbs
2.Healy
3.Marler
4.Domingo
5.Vunipola

Not many quality looseheads out there.

Beast way above vunipola and Domingo.

Unfortunately Domingo can't play more than a couple of games in a row and has done nowt at int level for ages.

Also woodcock is a tremendous 1

No Ayerza at all?  Shocked

Think the LHs are stronger then the THs at the moment. No real standout at the the moment. Question marks over the bigger names like Cole, Mas, JDP the last 18 months and a host of young lads coming through. Arguably Davy Wilson was the form TH in the world the last year or so
