OLN Fantasy Rugby World Cup 2007

10 August, 2007

One of the most eagerly anticipated events in this year's sporting calendar - the Rugby World Cup - kicks off in France on September 7.

For the first time, Off Licence News is staging a Fantasy World Cup competition sponsored by Mont Tauch - one of France's most innovative and well-respected wine cooperatives in Languedoc, southern France.

It's now up to you, loyal OLN readers, to enter and pick the best 15 players to form that winning fantasy rugby team.

Kick off will be very soon - in just a few more days, on August 14, the final squads for the competing nations will be announced, and the game can begin.

Come back to this page after that date, and you can start choosing your own winning team. The overall winner will be announced in the November 2 edition of OLN, so scrum down and get ready for the whistle.
