As mentioned in the NRL thread as VNRL is 95% not running this year I'm attempting to set up our own league on Cricketweb. James has already agreed to give us a subforum for the game inside the Sports forum so thats a good start.
I thought we should get it started pretty soon as the drafting process may take a while, depending on how it's done.
Rundown of the rules:
- Competition will require at least 8 teams, no more than 14 though.
- Squads will be selected largely by a drafting process, when we get to a set number it will just be signing from there.
- Players will have set positions, eg someone like Craig Wing will be a Five-Eighth/Halfback/Hooker while someone like Ben Ross will only be a Prop. There will be no player values or salary cap etc...
- Scoring system is as follows
4 Points for a try
2 for a goal (only one gk per week)
1 for a field goal
4 for a Forward try (Any variation of 35 tackles or 20 hit ups or a combination of 45 of the both)
Each week we will be required to keep track of our own scores, however if you dont want to or can't I'll be double checking them all at the end of the round anyway.
I have arranged with James to set up the forum in here once there is enough interest. So if you are keen leave your interest here.
