    It's that time of year where the FSA embraces another sport for a few months.

    Yes it's time for the Six Nations :)

    There's the Irish Times and ESPNscrum leagues. Plus I'm sure Fantasy Rugger are going again this year too.

    Wanted to post about it but had no time for it lately. Thanks for opening the 2017 VI Nations campaign M.P ;).

    After a promising Autumn International Test Series, let's (hope and) see the renaissance of Les Bleus à la Roger Federer this year :D.

    A VI Nation starting with Le Crunch and finishing with France-Wales & Ireland-England (most probably championship-decider game(s)) is real exciting. Already drooling over it :).

    Around this time of year I renew my interest in rugby and I ask myself the same question...who is the French kicker!

    So this is my team

    Brown (Eng)
    H.Penny (Wales)
    North (Wales)
    Zebo (Ire)
    Vakatawa (France)

    Farrell (Eng) C
    Murray (Ire)

    Stander (Ire) - Picamoles (France) - Warburton (Wales) - Launchbury (Eng) - Henderson (Ire) - Lee (Wales) - Furlong (Ire) - Hartley (Eng)

    What do ye think, I've left scotland and italy off completely. Going for max out try scorers. Any recommendations?

    Didnt realise I had less than an hour to enter this on Irish Times site


    (for anyone else who didnt realise)

    Will sign up for the Irish Times one on my break in a hour

    In the rbs fantasy one, does anyone know if you need a full squad (XV + 3 subs)? Sacrificing your last sub seems only logical as you can fit who you want into your starting XV.


    Also I have a very lonely prediction league up on Superbru if anyone fancies joining? You predict winners and winning margin. Bonus for being exact, close and extra points to closest in pool as well.

    Baptiste Serin of course :)! He has the flair. Remember his chistera pass for our try against New Zealand?

    See at 0:16 :cool:


    Lamerat at centre, Gourdon at back row are having promising starts under Novès. Then Vakatawa is special but you know him already.

    That's what I'm unsure about the rules are not very clear..

    I didn't check them this year but that's what we could do last year and during the WC too. Strange system IMO. Also I don't like the backs not being separarted between centres and outside backs (ESPN is better for that).

    Found this:

    Can I transfer players between games?

    No, all transfers must be made by the published start time of the first match of the weekend, then teams will enter a transfer lockdown period until that Sunday at 23:59PM where you will be allocated your weekly transfers.
