Opta Scoring Definitions
Try Pass:
A pass that has directly resulted in a try by the recipient.

Try Kick:
A kick that results directly in a try.

Key Assist to a Try:
An assist is awarded where the player who touches the ball prior to the try scorer increases the opportunity for him to score.
An assist will not be credited to examples such as these: a lineout thrower where the catcher takes the ball and runs directly over the line; a scrum half who puts the ball into the scrum and the number 8 picks up and scores directly from the base of the scrum; a player who makes a simple pass from the breakdown in his own 22 to a player standing still who then runs through the opposition to score a length of the field try; a player whose kick is charged down and then bounces to a team mate who scores; or any opposition player whose error leads directly to a try.

Successful Tackle:
The defender has brought the attacker to the ground and completed the tackle such that the ball carrier is obliged to release the ball or, the defender has forced the attacker to surrender possession or, the defender has forced the attacker over the touch line. More than one player can be awarded a tackle on a single ball carrier if their contribution is judged to have been required to complete the tackle.

Missed Tackle:
Bumped Off- the defender missed the tackle because they have been knocked off by the attacker. Stepped- the defender missed the tackle because the attacker used footwork or evasion to beat them. Outpaced- the defender missed the tackle because they were out-run by the attacker. Positional the defender missed the tackle because they were in the wrong position on the pitch to make the tackle or made an obvious decsion error.

Carries Crossed Gain Line:
Where the ball carrier took the ball across the gain line (the position of the previous set piece or breakdown).

Penalty Conceded: Obstruction- where the player is deliberately blocked, charged or impeded by an opposing player in open play. Handling in Ruck- the player has attempted to put their hands on the ball once the ruck has been formed. High Tackle- the player has attempted a tackle above the line of the shoulders. Wrong Side at Ruck- the player has not entered the ruck through the 'gate'. Wrong Side at Maul- the player has not entered the maul through the 'gate'. Scrum Offence- the player has committed an offence at the scrum. Deliberate Knock On- the defending player has deliberately knocked the ball forward. Collapsing Maul- the player has attempted to pull down the maul. Offside- the player has been deemed to be in an offside position which has had an impact on play. Offside at Kick- the player has been in front of the kicker and made an impact on play without retreating. Lineout Offence- the player has committed an offence at the lineout. Dissent- the player has disputed a decision with the officials. Foul Play- where the player has deemed to have deliberately used a boot to make contact with another player e.g., stamping or tripping. Where the player has taken out a player in the air with or without the ball (mid-air tackle). Where the player has struck an opponent with the fist or arm, including the elbow, shoulder, head or knee (fighting). Where the player has attempted to make a tackle which is deemed dangerous (dangerous throw). Where the player has tackled an opponent at a significant time after they had possession of the ball (late tackle). Own Half- where the penalty is conceded in the defensive half of the pitch. Opp Half- where the penalty is conceded in the opposition's half of the pitch.

Bad Pass: A turnover due to a poor pass. For example, to an opponent, directly into touch, judged to be uncatchable for his teammate, excluding forward passes which are a separate category.

You can change your 15 players as much as you like right up until the first match kicks off on Saturday, February 1. After that you’ll have 20 changes to make during the Six Nations so that you can replace injured, suspended and under-performing players with fresh faces to keep your points tally ticking over.

Transfers can be made right up to the scheduled kick-off time of each match – which means you can make transfers BETWEEN MATCHES on any given day and they will count straight away in the next match.

You can change your Star Player as much as you like throughout the Competition without affecting the 20 changes allocated to your team.

You can also score bonus points in the competition by playing the Match Predictor.

HOW IT WORKS

Managers can make one match prediction for each of the 15 Six Nations matches, either a home win, an away win or a draw.

Each correct answer will earn you a bonus of 3pts in the Competition which means a total of 45pts are on offer in total so don’t miss out.

There is no penalty for not making predictions for each match.

You can select up to three free teams. Your team selections must consist of 15 players chosen from the selection lists.

Each team of 15 must include:

5 players selected from the Front & 2nd Row player list

3 players selected from the Back Row player list

2 players selected from the Half Backs player list

5 players selected from the Centres & Back Three list

For the purpose of the Competition, an entrant’s team does not have to accurately reflect a real life formation or any player's playing position in real life but must strictly adhere to the selection criteria.

NOTE: A maximum of 6 players can be selected from any one country.

Managers must nominate one Star Player in their XV who will score double points, positive and negative for their team. All points, howsoever scored by the star player, will be doubled.

First post edited with league joining details
Transfer amnesty right up to first kick-off so get them in.

I like the fact that starting line-ups are always available a couple of days before so no interest or knowledge of rugby necessary.
