6 Nations Fantasy Rugby, Predictions, Tipping Comps etc

It’s been a while since I’ve had a proper go at a Fantasy game for the six Nations but I thought it was time to have another go and see whats out there.

First off I found the superbru game. It’s not strictly speaking a fantasy rugby game but based on predictions/tipping. Which means it’s quick to complete your selections and from there on in, easy to maintain, bonus. Unfortunately there are no prizes other than pride on offer, I’ve started a league over there but it’s lonely over there at the moment come and join me, click Pool Name: Chasing The Egg, Pool Code: yankfire .

Next up was espnscrum’s little brainchild which is a bit more like a traditional fantasy game, the rules are a little hard to find, so briefly:

  • Maximum of four players from each nation.
  • 3 front rowers, 2 second rows, 3 back rows, 1 scrum half, 1 fly half, 2 centres and the back 3.

What is good about it is there is no imaginary value system in place, you can, if you want have O’Driscoll, Wilkinson and Williams in the same team. Which is I haven’t, but many might go for. Also what is good is points make prizes! The overall winner will get a years subscription to Sky Sports HD and a 32inch HD Colour TV, the round by round prizes are a little less exciting.

I’ve set a league up over there too so don’t be shy, the league is called Chasing The Egg, the PIN is 1807 .
