We love a fantasy league at First XV, whether it's Six Nations, Super Rugby or, in this case, Rugby World Cup. And as always, we want you to join in. There will be fantastic prizes for the top 3 places (excluding our staff) at the end of the tournament!
To join our ESPN RWC 2015 fantasy league, follow this link
and select your team. Once you've picked the 15 men that you think will lead you to victory, go to My Leagues then select the Join League option. The pin you'll need to enter is 1112558-414.
Once the tournament begins, you have an allocation of 15 transfers to play with during the Group Phase (matches 1-40). A further 10 transfers can be made during the Knock-out Phase (matches 41-48). Between the Group and Knock-out Phases, unlimited transfers can be made for free. All transfers and changes of kicker must be submitted before the first game kicks off each day in order to be active for that day's matches. ESPN's full rules and deadlines are available here
Our staff are ultra-competitive when it comes to this sort of thing, with many hours of spare time put into picking the best side, so you'll need to be on your toes to stand a chance of winning. Bring it on!
