The 2009 RBS 6 Nations are almost upon us - the 10th 6 Nations since Italy were added to the 5 Nations roster in 1999.
This year is expected to be a particularly exciting one with defending champions Wales looking for their second consecutive Grand Slam title, joining only 5 other sides ever to do so (perhaps just particularly exciting for me, being a Welshman!)
Here at Finextra we thought this would be a good opportunity / excuse to encourage a bit of friendly banter and competitiveness by starting up a 6 Nations fantasy league.
Scrum.com runs a league on their site within which players are allowed to organise individual sub-leagues, so we have set up the originally titled ‘Finextra League'. It is free to play and is great fun, and as an added incentive the overall winner at the
end will receive a bottle of champagne on us.
To get involved simply click
here to register your team, and then use the pin code 2939 to join the Finextra League. There is even a lucky dip option so if you haven't got a clue about Rugby or who to choose for your team you can still join in the fun for the chance to
win a bottle of Champagne.
All that's left to say is - Come on Wales!!!
