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'm not so sure, he's hardly had a look in the last few years, I don't think SL rates him.

At best he was 3rd choice FB so his game time would have been very limited.

Pretty sure Goode is 2nd choice choice Steve, I've not seen anything to suggest he isn't and at a push Watson could be ahead of Foden.

I'm not saying it's right but I don't think he's really in the thoughts of SL.

Given his form I reckon he'd be in the large squad without a doubt, challenging for the 23 IMO. I'd have Goode about 5th at FB

Brown, Foden, Watson, Nowell, Goode

He'd always been there or thereabouts in the squad though, didn't he start at FB when SL took over? Played on the wing a few times too, even when he was clearly out of form

All moot now anyway

When you look at Lancaster's squads he's always gone with 3 I think - assuming he'll get some of the Saxons training with them as well. Read they were looking at fast tracking Burgess as well due to lack of 12s - can see the sense of him being in the training environment, but couldn't see him playing at all surely!

Twelvetrees rarely disappoints for England. Maybe he's one of those players who do better in the Int environment like Nonu, Dagg etc

I've often been disappointed by Twelvetrees in an England jersey. he's had the odd good game but most of the time has been either bang average or pretty gash.

Complete turnaround from the squads on the weekend. Lancaster has apparently changed his mind after consulting with other people. Big bit on talk sport this morning.

Weird. 36 should be nowhere near the squad. Gets panicked and has poor decision making. Add in his defence and it's even more obvious

I am no Yarde fan due to his lack of work in defence and because he has some obvious flaws. However he is coming in to form and is a threat ball in hand

Agree with you Pete on Twelvetrees for England - just think it is his decision making and execution that lets him down. Apparently he is in for his communication skills. Rather go Ford, Barritt, JJ. Seen a few papers say they have some misgivings about Burrell as an international centre as well.

Before last 2 weeks I'd say Yarde doesn't deserve to be in the squad, but he's actually looked really good recently. Would probably have gone for Wade instead as since getting his form back his defence has improved a lot for Wasps.

I worry that Wade is going to be one of those what if type players for England, same as JSD.

Hopefully he gets a shot after the world cup, but I think he's going to struggle to be in the squad this time out

Totally agree he's put some average performances in but not many poor ones, maybe Aus last year. Disappointing depends on what you're expecting I guess.

I expect an international 12 to be able to make good decisions and be solid defensively, neither of which Twelvetrees does on a consistent basis.

I disagree somewhat, he's usually pretty reliable. I think he's put in better performances for England than Gloucester, I can only recall the Aus game were he was poor. I think Twelvetrees gets a bad rap sometimes in an England shirt, he's a decent option but not great.

Guys, should I build at 9, 10, or wing?

I struggle to see what Yarde has done wrong in a England shirt. Surely should be ahead of Nowell for the wing spot.

Roko out of both squads. Why was he picked in AI's?

I like Nowell and think he will be a long term back three option. Played 13 for Chiefs recently and looked dangerous. But agree, there are the right players in the squad, but perhaps being considered for the wrong positions.

I agree that Nowell has huge potential. I've not seen enough AP this season to form my own opinion on how well they're paying this season but Yarde has looked at home in a white shirt.

I can't see away from Marler, Hartley, Wilson, Attwood, Parling, Wood, Robshaw, Vunipola, Care/Youngs, Ford/Farrell, Watson, Burrell, Barritt, May, Brown for the first game with Webber, Corbs, Cole, Kruis, Haskell, Youngs, Farrell, Goode.

I'd love to see Ford, Burrell and JJ start in midfield from those fit.

That has to be the midfield imo.

Lawes out for at least first 2-3 games.

Steve agree with you on the team as am sure that is what Lancaster will pick, although he's put Webber in the Saxons so imagine it will be Youngs on the bench.

Read that they want Yarde to work on his work rate a bit more. Surprised Wade isn't there, as Nowell has some defensive issues too but I don't think anyone matches Wade in attack in Europe.
