It’s the World Club Series games this week which means that we only have two Super League games to count towards the fantasy rugby league. A few people weren’t sure what would happen with the fantasy competition but it’s reasonably easy to work out. As per the rules only Super League games count so that discounts the teams playing in the world club challenge from scoring points. Then as a general guide the game week runs from Monday to Sunday. The transfer window opens on a Monday morning to start the game week and then runs until the final game on Sunday which closes the window. Points are totted up and Monday morning sees the new game week. This is the same no matter how many games are played, it sometimes results in weeks when some teams play twice allowing an oppourtunity for players to score in two games. Of course a week without Super League games such as a challenge cup weekend we wouldn’t have a game week for.
The only exception to the Monday to Sunday rule is the Easter weekend fixtures which is split into two game weeks, allowing you a little time to make changes between the two rounds of games.
So with only four teams to pick from it’s time to make some savvy transfers and try and catch up some points. Early top of the points chart Rhys Hanbury who has taken on Widnes kicking duties wouldn’t be a bad choice to get in your squad for the weekend as Widnes play Salford. Or at £125000 with a current return of 17 points from two games maybe you fancy Setimata Sa to grab another try or two. Salford’s top scorer is of course kicker Michael Dobson who has shared kicking duties with Josh Griffin. Further down the points though £100000 prop Adam Walne has already grabbed himself a try this season.
Hull KR take on Wakefield in the other Sunday game with top points scorer from last seaon for Hull KR Josh Mantellato currently still a doubt so if he doesn’t return kicking duties have previously, unsuccessfully, been shared between Kieron Dixon and Albert Kelly. Or maybe you fancy squeezing in a Wakefield player, current top of Wakefield’s points is Stuart Howarth who hasn’t even kicked a goal this season and also comes in cheap for a player who has scored 15 points already this season at £100000.
You could even use your wildcard but remember it’s only available once over the season.
