Fantasy Rugby World Cup

I just joined and selected my team. Truly earning its “fantasy” tag. Choosing my team felt just decadent and indulgent. A backline of Faf, BB, May, Tuilaga, Davies, Radradra and Hogg.

Three of us in the comp so far.
Maybe we should work out a prize for the winner and a punishment for the loser?
 
already stuffed mine up by picking Sevu Reece then the machine biffs him in at fullback. WHY is Beaudy only listed at 1st 5? MORANS.

Think my reserve kicker might be Tameifuna. Get practicing, fatty.

The worst part is having to pick not just one foreigner but TWELVE of the freaks.

I even picked an ENGLANDER.

Sickener.

I've even resorted to picking a Frog........

I'm not quite sure how this will work. I wonder how many trades you get after round 1, also interestingly a few teams play twice in "Round 1", like Fiji. Might be useful having a Radradra in there.

You get 6 transfers, and 3 players from each team from today for each of the pool matches;
You get 8 transfers, and 6 players from each team for the quarter/semiss; and
You get 8 transfers, and unlimited players for the final.

We currently have:

Jack’s Kicking Rockets
Shadjr’s Illustrious Idiots
Jason.vassiley’s Kind Tigers
Dctarget’s Titanic Sergeants
OzWales
Shaker1989’s Cheerful Termites
Twoilms
Tex’s Illustrious Hawks
Pitcairns Burn Clinic 8th XV
Mr_plow’s Determined Albatrosses.

I’m guessing kick-off in the Japan v Russia match is the cut off so get a team in before then.
 
ffs, jammy Tex and his Israel Folau's All Man Massage XV picked Matsushima and has already won the whole bloody thing. Great world cup guys, #4_more_years

FUCKERS FUCKERS FUCKERS!

Round one is done and dusted and a clear gulf in nous has been established. At the top of the field is Jack (identify yourself!) with a pretty strong 231 points, chased closely by Brazzer with 228.50.

Big scorers were Matsushima with a hat trick, Kerevi as captain and Koroibete.

Laggards shadjr, jason.vassiley and Dismal Pillock need to up their game and start hunting 2nd tier Russian and Nambian fliers to up the ante and drag themselves back into contention.

Big scoring games ahead for Italy, England and South Africa.

The ladder:
  1. Jack's Kicking Rockets
  2. Brazzer's Poorly Penguins
  3. dctarget's Titanic Sergeants
  4. asuther1's Supreme Flippers
  5. Israel Folau's All Man Massage XV
  6. Twoilms
  7. The Cheerful Termites
  8. trappa's Vivacious Moles
  9. Rugby All Stars
  10. OzWales
  11. JeremyC's Unbeatable Hornets
  12. JBarteles's Bright Starlings
  13. Chunky's Immense Jewels
  14. Mr Plow's Denver Broncos
  15. Pitcairns Burn Clinic 8th XV
  16. jason.vassiley's Kind Tigers
  17. shadjr's Illustrious Idiots
Edit: formatting that table was enough to turn a man to drink.

Well that's a bugger. And nearly half my squad not playing, or teams not announced yet......
 
Looking into commissioning a FULL PUBLIC ENQUIRY as to the abject failure of my carefully researched and scouted selections. full disclosure time: didnt read the fine print and had no idea about all that "transfer" rubbish. Did my guys play? Were they on the bench?

One more thing: WHY is the player named Isaia Toeava unavailable for selection?

WHY?

Don't worry, I'm banking on three players being picked, as I ran out of transfers, and those teams (Aus and Scroteland) haven't been announced yet
