    Hi Gents,

    So further to the discussion in the 2017 thread, I've created a poll so we can settle on an option.

    There are some boardie leagues live on some these sites already, the purpose of this post is for the rest of us to make a decision on where to set up our team.

    I'll close the poll on Thursday at 10:00.

    Which fantasy six nations league do you want to join 18 votes

    ESPN
    0% 0 votes
    SuperBru
    38% 7 votes
    Official 6N
    11% 2 votes
    Irish Times
    16% 3 votes
    Rugbypass
    33% 6 votes

    ESPN for me.
    Superbru is live already and captain of pools has already sent invites to those whove played boards.ie pools before on the site


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,423 ✭✭✭ Boots234


    Is the ESPN fantasy website working ok for ye?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,490 ✭✭✭ thomasm


    Irish Times Budget was very low (70m), but they have increased it to €100m as was very difficult to put a team together


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,742 ✭✭✭ c.p.w.g.w


    Set one up on the official site the other day, so gave that my vote


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,553 ✭✭✭✭ errlloyd


    Ultimately I am going to end up with a team on all three... So I guess it doesn't matter to me...

    So lads for whatever reason this poll isn't closing until tonight but may as well leave it run until then. It's looking like ESPN is the front runner so when the poll closes this evening we can confirm on here how to join whatever league is live.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,226 ✭✭✭✭ Venjur


    Ok lads - finished up with ESPN in front. Does anyone have a boards friendly league up yet?

    ESPN
    Irish Times
    Official 6N
    Superbru
    Rugbypass


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,500 ✭✭✭ Sabre0001


    Are there any of them running like Irish Times used to? No budgets, picking locks and centres, and added complications like that? Just pick your team with some considerations about # of players per team and things like that and work away...

    🤪

    ESPN won the draw.

    Plenty seem to be on Superbru but it got no votes.

    Having a back three of Hogg halfpenny and Watson I think is more how it went


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,553 ✭✭✭✭ errlloyd


    Managed to get to ~6500 overall :D

    Got absolutely slaughtered with one of my natwest teams though. That fantasy really rewards players for just being on the winning team, and I had no Welsh.


  • Registered Users Posts: 159 ✭✭ THFC198


    Thought I was in serious trouble till the England game, had Watson, Farrell and Simmonds. Just snuck into the top 1000


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,564 ✭✭✭✭ Buer


    Had Halfpenny in and dropped him for Hogg. Dang. Still, just outside the top 5,000 so not a bad weekend.


  • Registered Users Posts: 999 MattD


    Just inside top 5000. I switched Guirado out last minute, other than that, can't really complain about the players I picked! Was never picking Halfpenny!
