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

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

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.

Haha, I was going to make you an enquiry for TJ Matt! He's been looking good. 

Genia too is looking a bit better, but as Pooly states he's not on all cylinders. 

Sarel Pretourious has been bloody good with Joe Pietersen at Fh for Cheetahs!

Thomas has shown a few frailties defensively in the AI's but was superb going forward. He is a future super star so should be played. Was he not dropped then picked up injury ?



He is suffering like most other French players due to psa and his bananas selection policies.

Huger should be fb as he needs more ball as is so dangerous.

They lack ball carriers so Taofufina and a ball carrying backrow have to start. Kayser needs to start also as does a few others. I see they are getting Mas back in which will help scrum
And leadership.

I think biggest issue is attitude.

Bringing Mas back in wont help the scrum judging by most of this seasons performances. I also didn't realise France had an issue with the scrum, it's been one of their few successes.

Scrum has gone ok but not been a weapon. Ben arous looks good although better In the loose he has scrummed ok but has gotten parity at best. Slimani has also done ok and gained parity. They need to get on top and have only done this when the subs come on.

Mas has demolished Toulon Toulouse and the other big teams this year. Pair him in a scrum with Ben arous Kayser and Mas and the French front row looks much better. Send on debaty swarzeski Antonio and you have great impact.

Great article in times today about how in rugby coaches often discard experienced players near a world cup due the allure that new will bring wins.

Talked of how so many players like Jauzion Etc have been dropped pre wc even though they were the best players. It then speculated that this year it could be Bakkies, mealamu, Adam Jones Mas and many others may be the casualties this time. It says look at who replaces them and ask are they really better?

I've seen Mas have one good game this season, he's struggled for large parts. He's really slipped off this season imo, even more than getting hammered off Slipper last year.

Lol
Even though I am on here so infrequently you still find time to disagree.


Check him vs Toulouse and especially vs Toulon.

To be fair against Toulon he was against xocci the worst scrummager ever to be capped. The commentator was calling for it to be stopped as it was a massacre. The best thing for me is that when a th is on top he is generally giving the hooker a horrid time also. Think guirado and xocci have counselling after that.

He is like Julian white was late in his career just a monstrous scrummager. The way the game is going you will not get huge scrummagers as before.

Better pitches and rule changes will negate it all. Hope
Not but looks like it is going that way. Removing the hit affected the huge th like jones Castro etc

He's got away a bit lightly there - how long was Stevens banned for and he wasn't supplying!

Healy has a good piece in the Telegraph today - saying that the England coaching set up has no idea how to use a bench and makes bad calls during games. He's also wanting Simpson and Daly on the bench for impact.

Pleaded guilty to possession Chris. There was never any evidence of him supplying to others. Was charged for supplying to himself?! Some quirky aus precedence to it. http://www.theguardian.com/society/2015/mar/06/karmichael-hunt-initially-charged-with-supplying-cocaine-to-himself

Technically hasn't failed a drug test so can't be given a drug ban. ARU suspension for bringing the game into disrepute. Nice money maker for the ARU gets a 2.5k court fine but ARU feel the need to hit him for 30k

Good job as he could be a fantastic union player, one of those that really has something a bit special about him.

The initial reports were almost saying there was a ring of league players that were supplying - sure there were at least another 2 players from a different team arrested but then never heard anything more on it.

Everyone can see this apart from Lancaster. Bench should be able to change the game. Not putting cips on was unforgivable. His reasoning after for not doing was even worse

Agree with you there Mat - couldn't understand why we would take off Joseph and replace him with Twelvetrees at all, especially when chasing the game. Is a big worry, as just appears that they don't read the game well enough.

Think I'd like to see a bench where we can really take it to teams in the final 20 minutes of a match, as our forwards typically really start to push other teams packs then - I'd go T. Youngs, Mako, Thomas, Attwood, Wood/Croft, Simpson, Cipriani, Daly for the Scotland game (might be the same as Healy there, apart from Youngs not being in the starting line up).

Whilst Thomas has been solid, I would rather Brookes off the bench, a cannon ball like Youngs. Although if that does make our scrum more wobbly, then stick with Thomas, or even Wilson (if fit)! As for back row, I'd seriously get on the case of Ewers, Fearns, Garvey (presuming when Morgan is fit Billy would drop to bench) and ask them to prove they could make an impact in 20/30 minutes. If Wood or Croft were involved I'd rather they start.

Fluxy, I agree with Ewers but I don't think Garvey and Fearns are international quality - would rather we look at guys like Clifford at Quins, Itoje at Sarries who I think has unbelievable potential.

Thomas has started playing well for Bath again, has a more complete game than Brookes but expect that will change with the latter joining Saints and working with West in the scrummaging department.

Cruden is a poorer kicker than cips. Cips is 70 odd percent to 68% depending. Cruden had a few good seasons but been near low 60s. Cruden was high 80s until today. As the herald points out cruden gets a lot of shots in front of goal and how his percentage drops dramatically out wide of a certain point.

He is a streaky rhythm kicker like leilofano and will go incredible runs. However his style has a flaw that can unravel.

Best restart kicker I
Have ever seen is cruden. Worth points. Incredible skill at it

Cruden is a better kicker than Cips, he's the AB's first choice 10, he went to pieces today though. Cips was low 60's earlier in the season, awful stat.

Cips was low 70s and .004 off Myler. Also as any intelligent person knows stats are not the story. Myler has no range

Cips daly etc attempt huge kicks from halfway line plus as have big boots. Real shots to nothing.

It affects their stats.

Cruden can't kick past 35 metres and in front of posts. Also when he does not have silver service ball which he often gets at Chiefs is dross.

I think stats in rugby apart from line out and scrum are for morons. Rugby stats do not work. They have no context.

I used to think Fielden would be class to be fair.

I think potential means nothing until you have 30+ caps internationally.

I don't hate Ford at all and less with the intelligence digs pls, no need for personal attacks when discussing rugby.

Cips was in the lower 60's in the AP. Kicking stats are pretty straight forward, over the course of a season most will experience a varying difficulty of place kicks. Cips is just a poor place kicker, it's possibly why SL doesn't trust him in a tight game.

Saull the best 7 in England remember.........At least I only said Fielden was better than Sharples which he probably was at the time Wink

Just watching Brumbies v Force, going to be a tough season for the Force.

White in great nick, if Kurindrani had hands he'd be a top player. He's always fumbling and fluffing passes, such a frustrating player.

We all do it, so hard predicting who'll make it.

Chris and Danny Paul was possibly my all time favourite.

Poorly the intelligence digs were not at you i meant all these people and sites like in the loose that base everything on stats.

I saw an article saying is James Lowe
The best player
In S15.
The crux of it was he has made the most metres so must be the best. Rugby is such a team game that individual stats are hard to take in any context

Yeah James Lowe has been great. There are so many great outside backs in s15 they are playing at a different level to NH backs.

Have so much better understanding of space

Interesting article in the times about our back 3 vs Ireland

Goode turned the ball over 6 times
Nowell 3 and Watson 3.


That is not tolerable at int level.

Suggesting croft or wood will come in at 6 and Care or wiggles worth will come in. Also Henry slade and Cowan dickie have been training with England

Wood will start over Croft, I expect Wood to maybe come onto the bench.

Be good to see Slade involved, LCD is nowhere near but a good experience.

Just thinking of all the players the All Blacks have used in the last few years who still play but not for them?

Isaac Ross , Benson Stanley , Mike Delaney , Rene Ranger...
