    Looking for an alternative fantasy league?

    Each year a few mates and I set up a private fantasy league for the Super Rugga' season. So far it's been Fox, but last year it annoyed all of us with it's balls behaviour if you have a less than brilliant net connection (along with a few other things)..

    Last year someone here suggested an alternative to FOX. I've done a search but can't find the post. Does anyone else have a suggestion?

    Googling provides a few options, but who knows if they are any good until you create an account and make a start??

    I went and had a look. So far the only Fantasy is 6 nations.
    Thanks for the heads up though.

    This is the one I ended up on last year. Very much like the old FOX. It doesn't appear to be open yet for this year.
    It's South African based rugby.udt.co.za

    I'll second Superbru, but to be fair I'm crap at any sort of fantasy rugby, tipping comp or any other sort of competition where some sort of skill may be involved.
    Mind you I'm crap at anything that involves even a modicum of luck as well.

    Cool and thanks for the tips. I'll keep an eye on the Superbru site and see what happens.

    Superbru are showing a Super Rugby Fantasy and Super Rugby Fantasy Lite.
    I've set up a predictors pool and will hopefully figure it out to add the pool to the Fantasy leagues once they start.
    You can if you wish join up using the details below.

    Come play Super Rugby Predictor with me on SuperBru! It's free and loads of fun. Just click here:

    http://www.superbru.com/superrugby/pool.php?p=11501340

    Pool name: Fabulous Furry Force Fans

    Pool code: slurslat

    I can only see the tipping (predictors) but no Super rugby fantasy yet?
    Am I missing something?

    The Fantasy leagues have yet to start which is why you can't see them.
    They won't start until a lot closer to the beginning of the season when each club have finalized their player roster.
    On my home page on Superbru they show the fantasy league as yet to start but you can pre-register for them (which I have).
    As soon as they start I'll add the Fabulous Furry Freak ... I mean Force Fans to the list of pools available (if I figure out how that's done) and throw an invite up here somewhere.

    Ok, so apparently once the tournament starts I can transfer the FFFF pool from the tipping comp to the Fantasy comp and hopefully everyone that's signed up will come along for the ride.

    Ah.. I'll look into that too.

    I've registered with www.udt.co.za who do have players listings up. I also like the very simple to understand points scoring system they use. Sadly, while the page works a treat on my phone. it's crap on my PC. Though I suspect this is because I use mobile broadband on my PC as the wire internet here is only dialup speed on a good day.

    I emails the peeps with a question about this and they got back to me post haste (always a good sign).

    why not go and look at how their scoring system works and see if it appeals to you? It's way easier to understand than the supper "score points for having a pulse" system FOX were using. Which is probably why the FOX points were often not finalized until Wednesday last year.. Most anoying..

    Over the last few days there's been a few emails back and forward between me and the blokes at http://www.udt.co.za/

    They are totally friendly and very helpful. The render problems in Chrome (browser) have been sorted out.

    Their layout is un-cluttered and pretty quick. The scoring system is very easy to understand (basically try to pick peeps that will be in a winning side each week end).. Go and have a peek if this sounds like your thing.

    I can't recommend them highly enough if you're looking for alternative leagues.
