Rugby 6 Nations: Finextra Fantasy League

30 January 2009  |  4558 views  |  1

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!!!

Two in a row?

I think you're right about Wales. They will be the team to beat. As for England's chances I think much will depend on how the London Irish boys perform - they are the form team in the premiership at the moment!

I think the Crunch game (nice to hear the word crunch in a positive reference!) will be France v Wales and a winner takes all from there.

I'll be looking for the London Irish guys to get me some points at England v Italy - I'll be there as well, thought I'd share that with you and given England's form in the Autumn Internationals I might just take my boots in case they get desperate for some barn storming play making forwards!

Good luck with the league Tom and may the best team win!
