Yes I’ll give it a go.

Some of the point scoring confuses me...

e.g. Scrum Penalty Won (1 point)

Who gets the point?
A single player?
All the forwards?

Yes,used the free team for a bit of fun. Not that expert on Rugby and the points system a bit more complex that TFF. You can use 4 transfers between each game week. Without thinking too hard Italy by far weakest team and usually get hammered so would the best tactic be to just use your 4 transfers for the team playing Italy every week

Is the prize money eligible for the free team? Or do you have to pay to be eligible like the tff game?

Italian players can be useful for enabling. They do score quite well when you choose their tacklers. Ghiraldini scored very well last season. Tomasso Allan, the fly half scored well as well. The other that shone was Lovotti. So, the moral of the story is, don't ignore them just because they are playing for Italy.

I've gone 5 Irish, 3 Scots, 3 English, 3 French and 3 Welsh. No Italians at the moment.
I do have 1 player that nobody seems to be picking. I don't have Itoje.

5 Leagues = 5 Teams

Overall £2,500 all 5Teams

One League £250 =1 Team

FB and TW £100 each League =1 Team in each

6 Nations league but you can only use players from those 6 nations =1Team

I'm not racking my brain just for the 6 Nations.

You could start off with the same team for all your 5 Teams as they probably won't remain the same when you start using your transfers and captain changes.

Scores are posted at last. Looks as though several people have had the same idea of starting with 15 japanese players!

Just to wrap up our League a 5 week competition which was really a great accompaniment to the tournament. Personally I couldn’t quite get back into any form of contention after some early bad uses of captain and not realising early enough that players transferred into a previous captain took over the captain pick without deducting from captain changes.

Looking at the game stats Josh Adams was top player as you would expect from Mbimpi. Surprisingly the best forward wasn’t a back row player but Montoya the Argentine hooker.

Congrats to Stephen Buckley on the win.

Cheers for the game. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

The one beef I had with the game and it was a tiny one at that. The budgets. I can’t imagine anyone seriously going over budget once and therefore pointless having values.

Should have reduced the max to at least force people to go for lesser names.
