Fantasy rugby, anyone?

I’ve been challenged, via Twitter and have been forced to accept!

That’s right, team. As a long time skeptic of “other” fantasy rugby competitions, I’ve steered clear for a good few years; the admin involved in both keeping this place running and keeping the JustRugby competition site going have meant very little time to do much else. Having decided to put JustRugby.net into mothballs this season (simply because I can’t face the amount of work involved) I do have a small allocation of time available, hence the acceptance of said challenge: to play in Fox Sports’ SuperCoach competition.

Now since I’m there anyway, I’ve created a Sharksworld league, in case any of you would like to join me. No prizes up for grabs, other than a shiny “trophy” above your avatar for the league winner and, of course, bragging rights for the year.

If you’d like to play, head on over to http://rugbysupercoach.foxsports.com.au/ and join the Sharksworld group – the link is here.

    I see a lot of fantasies played out before the start of every Super Rugby campaign :twisted:

    Hello boet, my feet touch the ground every 3rd day or so. Been all over SA already and we are still in January. We had Brad over here last week to chat all things scrums with other coaches and now its plotting out the year ahead and how we are going to take care of the players. All good fun.

  • I may not be fantasy rugby inclined, but I have renewed my season ticket, and after a 2 year hiatus from commenting on this site (but always reading) I plan on offering a bit of usable content for the Sharksworld family. I hope to contribute in any way possible.

    Cheers;

  • BTW, I’ve updated the post…. created a group, rather than a league, so we can now have more than 14 participants

  • I’d sign up but I only tend to do well in these things when the Sharks do well. I’ve come out tops exactly twice in Superbru pools (results were eerily similar for fantasy rugby):
    1. 2010 when the Sharks won the Currie Cup
    3. I also won an IPL pool in 2010 by simply picking teams with the coolest sounding names.

    Only participated in LMS after that :grin:

  • This may be a dumb question, but what is the 6 digit league key? Need one in order to join.
