RWC Fantasy Rugby Challenge – It’s Back!!

Sharp as a tackDo you have a rugby brain or are you simply rugby brawn?
Do you know more about rugby than our own Rugby Doctor?
Are you happy that previous winners Charlie Mansell, Cian McBride and Alex Hazell think that they know the most about international rugby? It’s your chance to prove them wrong!

Ealing Trailfinders Men’ Section is running a private fantasy league for the coming 2015 Rugby World Cup. This is by popular request following the huge success of the Fantasy League for the 2015 Six Nations and 2014 Autumn Internationals.

Entry is easy

First create a free account on ESPN Fantasy Scrum here and register your dream team. (You can change this team as frequently as you like prior to the start of the RWC.) Entry to ESPN is free and there are some fantastic prizes including an LG 55” curved OLED TV, Twickenham tickets, 13” Macbook Pro and iPad Air computers.
