You get to build your dream team and you can switch players around as much as you want, so get tweaking your strategy as the tournament goes on. If you need some help figuring out which players to choose, they’ve got you covered with explanations and even an auto-fill option.

You can join leagues and compete with people from around the world, make your own private leagues, and challenge friends and family.

The points system allows your team captain to receive double points, whilst boosters such as triple captain, super kicker, and defensive king can help your team stand out above the rest.

Prizes will be given out every week to the top three scorers, and when the whole 2023 Rugby World Cup wraps up, the top three overall winners on the global leaderboard will be presented with huge prizes.

The RWC 2023 Fantasy Showdown will be hosted by Gethin Jenkins accompanied by legends like Ugo Monye, Jim Hamilton, and Benjamin Kayser who will talking about their top picks and players to watch out for on a weekly basis. You can catch it on World Rugby’s streaming platform, RugbyPass TV.
