    My job hours are really flexible, watching 17 games should be cake. In.

    I’ll be doing a lot of “working from home” during the World Cup, making sure I move the mouse every 10 mins so I appear active.

    alright, I'll assign members to positions now. and get peoples confrimations that they're still in; it wasn't clear with some people that they wanted to participate, or just wanted to state that they will watch lots of games, or just wanted to promote gary ringrose.

    I suppose it is OK to trade positions before the tournament starts. I mean if someone gets tighthead but they are a first five expert and the person that gets first five loves tightheads tehn by all measn swap. I don't want to dictate the rules though, so speak up if you disagree.

    I'll be rolling dice to allocate positions. first role says which group of 1-5 (if i role 1-2), 6-10 (if i role 3-4), 11-15 (if i role 5-6), second role determines what number in that group of 5, where i'll re-roll if i roll a 6. Obviously i'll reroll if i get a position already allocated.

    @bushytop
    i rolled a 4, then a 1. you get number 6. For clarity to South Africans, this is blindside flanker
    @TRF_heineken
    i rolled a 2, then a 2. you get hooker.
    @Leinster Fan
    i rolled a 3, then a 4. you get halfback.
    @The Alpha Bro
    i rolled a 1, then a 6, then a 6, then a 1. you get loosehead prop.
    @TRF_Olyy
    i rolled a 2, then a 1 (already taken), then a 4. you get number 4, lock. I'm proposing here you select from players wearing the number 4. unless you want to determine a better method with the member who gets allocated 5.
    @TommiG88
    i rolled a 2, then a 4, then a 6, then a 4, then a 2, then a 5. you get number 5, lock. see comment above.
    @Rinkadink
    i rolled a 4, then a 1, then a 1, then a 5. you get 10, first five eighth/ flyhalf/outside half.

    **** now i found a 15 sided dice roller online, I'm switching to that*****

    @ragerancher
    i rolled a 2, then a 3. You get tighthead prop.
    @themole25
    i rolled a 1, 3, 10, 7. you get openside flanker.
    @duncanb
    i rolled 15. you get fullback
    @Gena_ZA
    i rolled a 4, 4, 7, 2, 14. you get 14, right wing.
    @Cruz_del_Sur
    i rolled a 13. you get centre/outside centre.
    @SomeOke
    i rolled 15, 9, 3, 6, 14, 1, 14, 10, 12. you get second five eighth / inside centre.
    @BobbyM
    i rolled 13, 5, 8. you get number 8.
    @Umaga's Witness
    you get 11, left wing.

    Thanks for taking the effort, happy with my position.

    How exactly is this going to work, are we each going to make a subjective call and announce our player of the tournament at the end?

    What does the 17 game number signify? Just getting a look in at every team?

    For my part whenever I watch a game I'll update this thread with my thoughts on the 12s.

    Edit: If someone is particularly keen on taking 12 I'm willing to swap, I don't want wings though.

    I'm fine with 10, looking forward to it.

    Also not because so many people will think their team has the best first 5/8th.

    This should be fun! :D
