TESTRUGBY.com offers a salary cap fantasy game based on various leading rugby series. It is designed specially for the hardened rugby enthusiast who thirsts for an involved game to pitch their rugby skills against the rest of the world.
You become a virtual coach, managing real players from real games
The game provides for contestants to act as virtual managers, buying and selling rugby players from the pool of talent that plays in the live games. The goal is to maximise use of the limited virtual cash and player trades provided, to own the best players and therefore earn the most points in each round of the series. The manager with the most points at the end of the series is the winner.
Rugby players earn points for their managers based on values set for 13 game statistics:
|Game Statistic ||Short Name ||Points Value |
|Score a Try ||Score Try ||100 |
|Assist (setup a try) ||Ast Try ||60 |
|Line Break / Beat Tackler ||Line Brk ||30 |

Rugby players who have high counts in these statistics score big fantasy points for managers who own them in their teams.
Create wealth playing the rugby player stock market
Obviously some players will earn more points than others, and this is what drives their price in the trading environment provided - in a similar manner to share values in a stock market environment. Based on demand their values fluctuate up and down, so over time smart managers have the ability to create more wealth and therefore buy a better quality selection of players.
Winners in this game always have an in-depth rugby knowledge, with the real champions also showing clever strategic skills and nerves of steel.
