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.

AP finishing positions.

Champions: 8m
Runners Up: 6m
Playoff Semi Finalist Losers: 5m
5th: 4m
6th: 3.5m
7th: 3m
8th: 2.5m
9th: 2m
10th: 1.5m
11th: 1m
12th: 0.5m

Heineken Cup

Losing Quarter Finalists - £2 million each
Losing Semi Finalists - £3 million each
Runners Up - £4 million
Champions - £5 million

Amlin Challenge Cup

Losing Quarter Finalists - £1 million each
Losing Semi Finalists - £2 million each
Runners Up - £3 million
Champions - £4 million

Anglo-Welsh Cup

Losing Semi Finalist - £1 million each
Runners Up - £2 million
Champions - £3 million


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.

I thought Goosen was the more complete player than pollard. But again mentioning selection to him means he will become injured, ala Wade. 

Pollard for me tends to kicks a little to much, when he is unsure of what to do.

Pollard needs time in my opinion.

Undoubted superstar in making but maybe a bit to young. Physically he is there.

Think Meyer wants him to be the World Cup 10 so is giving him the experience.

They want to play wider and see pollard as the man to do this. Also takes it to the line well

Not saying he doesn't, but from watching him, he would prefer to perhaps put the grubber in or a small chips than attempt to take on a man and or offload and or just take the tackle and set the play up for the forwards to reset the play. Much like cruden and the AB's, after all possession is king.

Pollard is the wrong 10 if they want to play expansive, he lacks the skill set.

He's a talent and will be a good player but he's not there at the minute. Game time will help him

Whitelock a huge loss with matfield back. Retallic world class now which makes it easier.

They compliment each other so well. Similar to Bakkies and Matfield in terms of two different styles of player combining.

Bird injured.
He is 3/4th choice between him and tuipolutu then you have Romano then Thrush.


http://www.businessinsider.com/afp-injuries-hit-all-blacks-ahead-of-springbok-clash-2014-9


Whitelock for me the best 5 in the world so always a huge miss.

Retallick developing well and becoming a superb player. In that world class bracket.Not sure he does the traditional lock part of hitting rucks all the time but does not need to as whitelock does it. They are both hybrid 4/5s which is the way the game is going. Think
You will start to see very little difference between 4 and 5
In a few years time.

Be interested to see how all blacks pack balance is as whitelock is a grafter and will be missed add in Kaino
Missing with messam and that's some serious grunt lost. Luatua is a great player ball
In hand and exciting but seen more
As
An impact player rather than a working 6.

Yea it got up to .49 today but day traders brought it back down. I imagine it'll settle, lots of good news coming out.

I got another tip that I didn't act on, can't remember the name but a similar company. If I had of put 5k on Monday it would have been 120k by Friday!

Lots of volatile stocks, unit trusts etc


I had a portfolio inc of 44% last year but this year around about 8%. Would be losing badly if it weren't for this one which is trading about 5000% up. I am cashing in soon as is so volatile.

Difference being I put very little in to last year and quite a lot into this year so my 44% was ten times less than my 8% is this year. Take off fees etc and that 8% becomes 4-5% and not worth the risk

Yea your right, you normally do ok with a dodgy scrum.

Need to get Buchanan on for Gray, Grays scrummaging is weak and you need somebody to punch holes.

It's early season CJ. Would
Be more
Worried
If all the England boys were firing. They will
Have been given most of pre season off so will be nowhere near fit.

Reports  say robshaw and co were way off pace. Re yarde that Ian geech article I posted earlier Says it all. A threat going forward but a liability in defence currently as no idea positionally. Easily sorted.

I like watching sinckler ball in hand but think collier has better chance of making it at top level

NZ not looking great to start with.

Serfontein did half block Cruden for that try but Cruden just stopped when slightly impeded and could have worked to get across to his man Hendricks.

WLR has started poorly. Hands have been shocking.

Hendricks is suspect defensively and under the high ball but he is an exciting runner.

Pollard has grew into game, he was poor for first part. Boks don't really use him that much tbh, they seem to like using WLR as fist reciever so it's hard to judge him, he's slipped off a few tackles.

NZ looking very rusty, SA scrum and line out has went well.

Boks always seem to win set piece battle with NZ. Woodcock is a massive loss for NZ. Arguably there most important player after Mccaw.

They are missing Kaino today
