Entered. My team is probably shit as I don't know most of the players.

NZ got spanked by South Africa in the Tri Nations. Don't think it'll be the walkover for them that it should be. Scotland will do well to escape the group but I don't see a northern hemisphere side winning it.

18 - 5 isn't really a spanking. The All Blacks beat them in the first game 40 - 7...

It's the All Blacks to lose. Australia will be a close second.

Taking part couldn't be easier. Simply select a 15-man team from the player list, making sure you have maximum four players from each nation and the right number of players in each position (three front-row forwards, two second-row forwards, three back-row forwards, one scrum-half, one fly-half, two centres and three outside backs).

That really could be easier.

Anyway, fuck it, I'm in. I know absolutely dick all about rugby, I don't even know any of the Scottish players, so I'm just picking names at random.

Yeah, go these guys!

J Slipper (AUS)

M Stevens (ENG)

B Franks (NZ)

P O'Connell (IRE)

V Matfield (SA)

K Brown (SCO)

P Spies (SA)

W Palu (AUS)

J Simpson (ENG)

Q Cooper (AUS)

SB Williams (NZ)

B O'Driscoll (IRE)

L Halfpenny (WAL)

C Paterson (SCO)

M Medard (FRA)

And we're off! New Zealand, who have never lost in the group stages of the world cup, are unsurprisingly thrashing Tonga at the moment 34-3 with 10 minutes left.

I'm not sure how the rules for this leagues work. Do we get points for conversions and penalties or is it only if you've nominated that player as your kicker?

Penalties and conversions are only for your designated but anyone gets drop goal points.

Full rules on scoring are here (there's not many). http://espnscrum.fantasyleague.com/Article.aspx?id=155

Slightly annoyed at myself for picking Corey Jane over Nonu at the last minute but I reckon he'll come through in the other group games with more points.

I thought Sonny Bill had a really good game today and gave himself a good shout at starting instead of Conrad Smith. Sonny Bill's offloads are just so good.
