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.

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.

They both look decent at this stage, nothing amazing. Next season we'll be able to get more of an idea I imagine and see if they're going to kick on.

Was hoping to do much better this year, not sure what to improve as there were so many contradicting points. 

Suppose I will have to deal my way up the table...

ChequeredJersey wrote:Just to say, though we may not have added more EQ than NEQ (largely because we've added so few players and the likes of Cipriani were spiked by Wasps Wink ) Quins' first XV is still likely 11 EQ and 4 NEQ, probably with only 2 NEQ on the bench

We really need some more players though, esp scrum half, and we need to change whatever it was that happened to switch our great first half of the season into an utter disastrous season once the 6N started

You were really unlucky with the injury to Evans, thought he was playing very well and getting you guys to tick, would say that Care's form has been very indifferent this season, which hasn't helped and Brown has disappointed since 6Ns - in terms of form, Chisholm has been a lot better recently.

Quins have a brilliant academy and O'Shea always went with youth and you see how many players Quins had disappearing to England for the 6Ns so not surprising over the last 12 months Quins have been signing players who won't go away for large periods of the season. Carries chairman is really pushing for AP to be played more outside international windows so they can actually play their England internationals - look at Saints this year, Hartley has played 6x for them.

Lol protheroe was unanimously England's best player in 6n. He has another 2 or 3 jrwc after this as is 18.

I personally would have picked brophy-clewes ahead of him for the tournament as you need a more experienced 10
In such an inexperienced side. You will also find protheroe is having an operation.

Must be hard work trying to have digs all the time pooly.

Protheroe and Jack Ryan of Ireland are probably the hottest talents about in junior NH rugby

He was bloody awful! He's got a lovely little step on him but that doesn't make you a 10. He was massively out of his depth and had no game management to speak of.

As soon as you use the word "unanimously" I instantly know you mean you Laugh

You'd think 12 with Amitgage outside him? Daly perhaps back at 15?

Either way, it gives them options to mix things up. Cips/Beale 10/12 axis is pretty exciting.

Yea probably likely. Love to see Daly at 15 though, I think he could be great there and a potential weak position for England.

With Brown off form, Goode not internationally adept, Foden unable to get back to his old form, Tait a bit past it I agree to a degree. I think we should trial Watson at 15 vs Wales, Brown needs a rest. Robshaw too (start Clifford and either Kvesic or Harrison in back row)

Agree with you there CJ, saw Mallinder saying that he wants Hartley to miss the tour as well due to the head knock.

Wonder if Wade not making the 7s training squad means he's going to be going to Australia.

Anyone see Sopoaga's kick? Highlanders looking good.

Suggesting Hartley misses the tour is bizarre. He's hardly played any rugby this season and Saints played him in the last game from the bench. I don't get it.

He's a moron. Jackson is a step up for next year. Really bitterly disappointed with this once promising looking season that has ended with us whimpering out of Europe and silverware, going from a great position before the 6N to just about holding onto 7th, playing well to playing spinelessly and the likes of Brown ending up in poor form with Marler seemingly breaking his own mind

Very clinical performance from Sarries. The halfbacks and locks had fantastic games.

Racing gambled on Carter but he obviously wasn't fit, he looked at 50% today.

Great year for English rugby.

Some great players in that, Veainu has been a fantastic signing, Tigers have been very good in the transfer market with all their signings they got a load of stick for not being very ambitious with them but Veainu, Betham, O'Connor, McAffrey and Fitzgerald have all been excellent.

Going to be a great game with Sarries at the weekend.

Piutau at 12 is an odd call.

He played all over the place for Wasps, didnt have many games at no12 though - think they just wanted to get him in there. Would have had him as best back in the AP this year, with Smith being the best forward.

Be interesting to see if Wasps can replace either of them - sounds like Willie le Roux is all but signed up and Dallagio has been saying they want Steffon Armitage as well.

Steff is not at Smith's level nor the same type of player but he would still add something to wasps if they can afford him. He's been unable to start at Toulon on merit this season, but that is Toulon!

WLR is a world class player. Different, again, to Piutau, but world class
