Here’s what to do:
Select your Dream Team from the Players’ Register. Each team must
consist of a coach and seventeen players. You can only select two
personnel from each Super League club and the total value of your
selections must not exceed the £3 million limit.
All players must be selected in their correct positions, with the
substitute backs coming from any of the full backs, wing/centre
threequarters, stand off halves or scrum halves categories. The
substitute forwards must be selected from the prop forwards,
hookers, second row forwards or loose forwards categories.
Choose a name for your Dream Team and complete the Entry Form that
is attached. Then mail to us the completed Entry Form along with
your cheque (please make payable to IRFL) or Postal Order for the
£8.00 entry fee for each team if entering via post or £6.00 if the
teams are entered on our website. You may enter as many teams as you
like. All entries must be posted by the closing date, which is
Friday 1st February.
Here’s what happens next:
When your entry has been received, it will be checked to ensure that
it complies with the Competition Rules. When it has been accepted,
it will be entered into the competition and you will be sent
confirmation of the computer record, along with a Score Chart on
which you can monitor your team’s progress throughout the season.
You will also be sent some Transfer Request Forms.
Please refer to the Competition Rules printed overleaf (paragraphs 7
and 8) for details on how your team will accumulate points.
Players’ scores can be calculated from details in the rugby league
press, but if you prefer to keep right up to date with all the
official scores, then you can subscribe to our Weekly Results
service. For a cost of £19.00 for the whole season, we will send you
details of all players’ scores, every week throughout the season.
Alternatively, you can pick up the players’ scores from our web site
after each Round, for a cost of just £8.00 for the whole season. If
you subscribe to the web-based results service, you will also be
able to access an on-line version of your Score Chart, which will be
updated after each Round. Just one subscription to the Weekly
Results service will cover all teams registered at one particular

After Round 1 games have been completed, the transfer market will
open and you will be able to reucture your team as you feel
necessary. Each transfer costs just £2.00, but be careful, as you
are limited to just two transfers to each of the eighteen positions
in your team throughout the season.
It is each entrant’s responsibility to maintain a competitive IRFL
team, by using the transfer system to their best advantage. You will
be sent more precise details on how the player transfer system
operates, along with the confirmation of your team’s entry.
Here’s what the winners will get:
The highest scoring team in each Round of games, will win a replica
shirt from the Super League club of their choice.
The highest scoring team in each ‘month’, will win a 2014 Season
Ticket for the Super League club of their choice.
The main prizes will be in the season long competition, which covers
all twenty seven rounds of the regular season. The winner will be
the team that accumulates most points over this period and he or she
will be heading off on a “Dream Trip” to Sydney, Australia, for next
year’s NRL Grand Final.
Further prizes for the runner-up and third placed teams, are as
detailed on the "Prizes" page.
The new feature that we introduced a few years ago was the fourteen
mini-leagues for the supporters of each Super League club. This
proved to be quite popular and will feature again this season. All
entries will be placed into one of the mini-leagues and the entries
that get the most points over the season will each win a framed
picture of players connected with their club.
Our aim is to provide you with a competition that will maintain your
interest throughout the whole season and with some forty nine prizes
on offer, we believe that we can do just that.
We hope that you accept the challenge and we look forward to
receiving your entries. Please keep the copy of the Players’
Register, as you will need it for the first weeks of the
competition, should you need to make any player transfers.
