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.

Francis was in running for man of the match until cramp forced him of. In auterac and Francis you have some prospects. Waller is an ok prem player but nothing more in my opinion. Sarries look strongest side in the league to me.

Corbs had a real good battle with Francis. Francis would get Corbs into a real awkward positiin before Corbs would put the power on and come back. Only 22 Francis so in a couple of years could be a real powerhouse sceummager. Sure they will work on his physique a little bit

It was a good one. I only really watch the highlights euro and glos games due to time restrictions and hating BT so odd to have watched a whole game on there.

Dallaglio Bayfield are great. Why they use Kay and Healey for commentary is beyond me

I like Dallagio and Bayfield, both really nice guys as well. Quite like Healy as well though. Their coverage overall isn't a patch of Skys though, though it is quite nice not to hear Stuart Barnes every week!

Think I might finally be able to start playing Pocock again. Australia's options at openside are just a joke.

Seen that on another site he crucified the breakdown. Not sure he suits a team trying to play a really expansive game. He would suit south Africa much more than Aussies imo.

He is a machine at breakdown. You always have to have a plan to neutralise him. Personally I don't think him and hooper as 6 and 7 would work as all the carrying would fall on Palu

The Aussies don't have the front five carriers either really, some dilemma to have selecting between those two.

We seem to be going down the route of having Robshaw and then Haskell as our backup, so no real out and out no7. Though to be fair Robshaw seems to have got the upper hand on Hooper last few games they've played, but not sure whether that is more to do with the dominance of our pack.

I think they've got that weird play off now for the 7th place finisher

From Wiki:

20th Team Play-Off

The final team each season qualifies through a play-off competition between the best placed unqualified teams.

For the 2014-15 season, this was a two legged play-off between the 7th placed teams in the Top 14 and the English Premiership. The team with the highest aggregate score over the two legs advancing to the Champions Cup.

For the 2015-16 season, there will be a 3-team play-off; the 7th-placed team in the English Premiership will play the 8th-placed (or highest non-qualified) team from the PRO 12, with the winner playing the 7th-placed team in the Top 14

A prediction with a full explanation. What more can be asked for? It's a game of opinions. There are times this season when predictions against me have seemed entirely preposterous which i've disagreed with but that's what happens with a game with such different opinions.

Exactly I have had 8 point games against me with poor explanations and I even had a 9 or 10 differnce against me in my euro game against saints. Look at most games in the prem in real life and what those were decided by.


Really poor behaviour to imply something. People in glass houses and all that.

That would be an incredible signing if they pull it off - didn't Hogg sign a new contact in November with Glasgow? Tigers apparently have 3 very big names coming in for next season - not sure how many EQ players they will have though.

Bath and Saints both been recruiting well for next year, Dai Young has been told he has as much money as he wants for recruitment next season, it sounds as though the club are expecting to generate profit of around £20m from next season!

He'd be perfect for them, big improvement on Tait as best running fb in northern hem. I don't know if he fits in with the style that Cockerill wants to play though, haven't they scored something like 25 tries in total this year, which is 2 more than London Welsh.

He's got a big old boot, and can step into first receiver too, which would fit with Mermoz being linked to them.

Mermoz covers 12 and 13 where both Allen and Tuilagi are injury prone, but none of the 3 are exactly first receiver types!

Mermoz would be a great signing with Tuilagi so injury prone. Tigers certainly need an influx of talent, their backrow has been really poor this season and it's normally an area of strength.

They've been lucky Salvi has been playing well this year, Gibson has been ok when he has played and will be a good signing. They've missed Waldrom's ball carrying though.

They need decent wingers - don't think they know where the tryline is at times! Is amazing they are still in contention with getting a playoff spot.
