Welcome to Season 8 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 23 players.  Players who are in the academy must be born on or after 1st September 1993. 

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. Worcester Warriors & London Wasps will receive two additional bids to be used exclusively on academy age players. These players must be bid for on the National League Bidding page, and each bid will be considered by the RFU 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 the RFU 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.
    Player Draft
    Worcester Warriors & London Wasps will participate in a player draft beginning the week of June 22nd. Both sides will be allowed to draft two players each. The draft picks will go as follows; 1. Worcester 2. Wasps 3. Wasps 4. Worcester.

    Round Bidding
    There will be two rounds of bidding. The first window will run the week starting June 29th and the second the week starting July 3rd. All sides will be allowed to sign one player each during the window. These bids are not protected if you do not have the funds in place to bid during the window you will lose the bid.     

    Open Bidding
    From July 13th the foreign market will be open to all bids similar to previous seasons. Due to the world cup the window will remain open till the end of September. 

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 20:00 hours on Sunday. Managers will pm 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
Bonuses will be awarded on a scaled basis i.e. 2m for 5 games, 1.6m for 4 games and so on
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.

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.

Ardie Savea had a brute of a game also. The lack of a proper ten is an issue for brumbies but it's up front they have lost this game

Savea was fantastic ball in hand! Didn't see much from him defensively though. Needs to up the work rate.

For all the talk of Naholo making the All Blacks I'd take Milner Skudder for the world cup. Lovely stepping game and has the fullback ability Hansen loves

Savea a really good carrier for a small lad, needs to work on his breakdown work though if he wants to step up.

It was the Savea steal that lead to the first try. I would not have him above Cane Mccaw yet.
But he is really progressing game after game. Going to be an exceptional player.

Kept pocock quiet today

He's nowhere near Cane, McCaw etc. I like his pace and carrying but he's not a genuine 7 in the sense. His groundwork is pretty average, he's certainly no Andy Saull Wink

Pocock Brumbies best player in this one. Seems the only one making an impact on defence and at the breakdown. Definetly had the better of Savea there.

Remember when JTH first came on the scene looked like he would be a star but just didn't have the pace for internationals and always got injured as he looked on the verge of the England squad when he was young

He was the great hope at 12 for a while, the English Nonu!

Pocock has been great since coming back, hopefully he'll pick up a knock before the World Cup.

He is only 21. I seem to remember you describing Sam Cane as dreadful at the breakdown when he was a similar age.

NZ produce these young uns that are capable of playing at the top level like Savea and co. All of our youth Ford, vunipola aside seems to take longer to come through. Most English forwards don't get a look in until at least several years later

Cane has came on leaps over the last few years, he used to get bullied but has improved beyond sight.

Is Savea capable of playing at the top level? As you say he's still young and developing.

I'd say Itoje was at a similar kind of level and he's a year younger than Savea.

Cane improving out of sight is simply due to age and experience and s lot of hard work.

You get better at breakdown more you play and also conditioning takes effect. At 21 you are never near your peak physical strength or fitness.

Players have to develop. I would say in terms of impact on a game Savea is ahead of itojje but he is that 1 year older And playing second season.

Itojje like Savea seen as having the potential to be world class. Itojje one of our brightest talents in a long time

Lined up at fullback. Hitting the line at 13 though very well with some big carries. Foley needs to improve the kicking from hand in the 2nd half

You'd have got good odd on a Hurricanes v Highlanders final.

Two NZ sides in the final and not one starting AB in either pack (possibly Coles)

Does anyone have these players at all?

Jack Dixon (Wales) Jonah Placid (Aus), RG Snyman (SA) or Nicky Smith (Wales) - not that any of those players might be future Saints targets of course...

Also have CJ Stander and Cobus Reinarch up for transfers if anyone is interested?

Boks name their training squad for the world cup. Delighted to see De Klerk and Kriel in the backs. A lot of the form props have been called up as well. Houghard and Carr look the biggest omissions. Jaco Kriel unlucky not to have been called up as well.

Forwards: Willem Alberts, Schalk Brits, Schalk Burger, Marcell Coetzee, Eben Etzebeth, Steven Kitshoff, Vincent Koch, Siya Kolisi, Francois Louw, Frans Malherbe, Victor Matfield, Heinke van der Merwe, Marcel van der Merwe, Teboho 'Oupa' Mohoje, Francois Mostert, Tendai 'The Beast' Mtawarira, Scarra Ntubeni, Trevor Nyakane, Bismarck du Plessis, Jannie du Plessis, Adriaan Strauss, Warren Whiteley

Backs: Damian de Allende, Bryan Habana, Cornal Hendricks, Elton Jantjies, Zane Kirchner, Faf de Klerk, Jesse Kriel, Lwazi Mvovo, Rudy Paige, Ruan Pienaar, JP Pietersen, Handre Pollard, Willie le Roux, Morne Steyn

Conditioning squad (injured players)

Heinrich Brussow, Jaque Fourie, Lood de Jager, Patrick Lambie, Lionel Mapoe, Coenie Oosthuizen, Fourie du Preez, Cobus Reinach, Jan Serfontein, Francois Steyn, Pieter-Steph du Toit, Duane Vermeulen, Jean de Villiers

Go on any of the SA sites and the fans are distraught at this squad when it was announced on the weekend.

Too many token players like mohoje,nvovo etc. kriel the unlucky one in particular. Other criticism is of bringing back players like Fourie and Kirchener

Hougaard not been playing 9 and is not one of their top wingers so an easy one to omit. De Klerk offers great impact and could be used as a bench option effectively.

For me the Canes should win the Super Rugby Title, but also a part of me wants the Highlanders to fulfil the 'underdog' tag and win. I say 'underdog' when the majority of their back line is actually quality, this will be a battle of two packs wanting to try and get recognition for world cup squads.

I'm on a stag do this weekend. I'm likely to struggle to predict especially via pm as it's a nightmare on my phone to have two Windows open.

Will try but don't count on it

Out of interest, can we bid very early for players still at schoolboy level or must they have reached academy level?

Tomas Lavanini the latest to sign up for the Argie SR side. See Coonie Oosthuizen is out of the world cup as well.

That side won't be great week in week out but will cause a few more upsets than when the rebels started out.

Some great talent in the squad at the moment.
