Just did a search and got the same result Whirls, this one looks better anyway, doesn't appear to be any limit on the players you select!

I'm in, 'Bulli Express XV', 13 better than that yacht of mine, so look out!

PS: For those of us outside Euroland we will need someone to post the teams prior to each round, or at least a link to find the teams...

I remember we entered one sponsored by Well's Bombadier Bitter a couple of years ago. Nice beer by the way. What happened to them? I don't think they did it again.

Charles Wells still brews Bombadier (although they stopped production of their wonderful Golden Lemonade many years ago) but isn't running a Fantasy League for Rugby. This was the only one could find; it's easier to pick a team as there is no financial restriction but you can't have any more than 4 players from each country.

Cheers

I'm on the firm Whirls, if you'd like to host my Hairy Crabs I'd be most grateful.

Your Hairy Crabs are under Foss's Redsocks but how much longer will they stay there?

Cheers

That's right, start as you mean to go on, SixNations renamed Pick-On-Fos.

This might work out better than sailing, you don't have to actually do too much, and you get to blame people a lot better than you for letting the team down.

Redsocks was the second choice for names, it was almost 'F*ck The Small Pig', a super secret line out code. None of the words have the same letters in them, it would be prearranged that the call out would be say, middle letter. So after walking quickly up to a line out at the throw in you'd shout 'D A P... D A P'.

So it's 'A' and 'A' is in 'Small' the third word meaning, 'I shall be attempting to throw this as a 3 ball, maybe.'
Shout DAP then wait and watch your team mates gaze into the middle distance, count on their fingers trying to workout what word has an 'A' in it.
Top level stuff.

Far too long winded that is, I'll stick with me crabs. As long as you don't mind them hiding under your socks.

I've applied with my team being the BadLosers, but I made a bit of a mistake setting up the team so the manager is Bad Losers as well.

You can change that Gordy, I changed mine. Can't remember how I did it though. It was just a simple edit, stroke over retype.
