Frequently Asked Questions

Welcome to ESPN Fantasy Rugby 2020.

Below are answers to frequently asked questions. Be sure to read the Rules for general game rules.

How many teams can I enter?

You may enter only one team.

If any user is found to have created more than one team, using different ESPN accounts, all teams are liable to be deleted.

How many transfers can I make?

Before the competition kicks off on 1st February 2020, a transfer amnesty is in place, allowing you to make unlimited changes to your teams.

Once the tournament begins, you will have three free transfers to use between each round of fixtures.

You may make additional transfers on top of your allocation of three free transfers, however for each additional transfer you will be docked two penalty points in the next round.

You can switch your designated Kicker as many times as you like during the tournament.

*Transfers and Kicker changes will lock at the scheduled kick-off of the first match of each round and will reopen one hour after the scheduled conclusion of the final match. No additional transfers will be awarded under any circumstances.

What is the deadline for making changes?

Transfers and Kicker changes must be completed by the first scheduled kick-off time of a round in order to be active for all three of that round's matches.

A breakdown of the transfer deadlines can be found at the bottom of the Rules page.

The transfer window will shut at the first scheduled kick-off of each round, and will re-open after the last match of each round has finished.

What is a Kicker change?

A Kicker change is the act of changing your designated kicker within your current team. For example, changing your designated kicker from a fly-half to a scrum-half.

Bringing in a new player to replace your existing designated kicker will count as a transfer rather than a Kicker change.

One of my players scored a Penalty Kick or Conversion, why has he not got the points for it?

Remember that only your designated Kicker will score points for Penalty Kicks or Conversions.

One of my players is injured, what do I do?

You can leave them in your team and they will continue to score zero points. To change them you must use a transfer. You won't lose the points the player has earned you already.

Why can't I view other teams?

You will be able to see your rivals' teams once the competition begins on February 1st 2020. This is to keep your team a secret up until the first kick-off.

How do I change my supported team?

If you would like to switch your supported team, please contact us via the Helpdesk with your request.

How do I set up a Mini-League?

The person setting up the Mini League will be the Chairman of that league. As Chairman, you must first register your own team and then:

  1. Click on 'Mini Leagues' from the menu and choose 'Join/Create Mini League'.
  2. Choose a name for your Mini League. If you wish the Mini League to be private you may also add a password.
  3. Use the 'Invite' facility to email your friends and colleagues and invite them to join your league.
How do I join a Mini-League?

If you wish to join an existing league, you'll just need the Private League code from the chairman who created the league. When logged-in and viewing your team, choose 'Join League' from the 'My Leagues' section of the menu and follow the on-screen instructions.

How many Mini-Leagues can I join?

There is no limit to the number of Mini-Leagues you can join.

Why do I not have any points in my Mini-League?

Please be aware that if you join a Mini-League after the start of the tournament, you will not see your team's score and rank until after the next points update, usually following the end of a match.

This will not affect your score or rank in the league.

How do I remove someone from my Mini-League?

Only the league chairman has the power to remove league members. To do this, click the 'x' icon on the far-right of the player within the league.
