Four teams dominate fantasy rugby league

THE second phase of the Fleet News ATS Euromaster Rugby Challenge has kicked off and if the first weekend's games are anything to go by it is going to be business as usual with one or two teams dominating both the real leagues and our fantasy competition.

With no Zurich Premiership games being played in Phase Two Week One, the only (fleet) rugby managers to score points have been those with teams in National League Division One.

Setting the pace of the game in this second phase are four managers: Mark O'Callaghan, operations director at CitiCapital Fleet in Manchester; Jill Caunge, group fleet manager for Hourds Travel Limited in Stafford; John Thompson, contract hire & lease manager for Dobies (Cumbria); and Laurel Sparks, transport co-ordinator for Tarmac Central in Halesowen. All are tied in top place with 38 points.

Standing out from the pack were fleet favourites Worcester who posted 66 points, including nine tries, against Henley.

But (fleet) rugby managers with Rotherham in their line-up enjoyed mixed fortunes, with their team scoring 41 points but conceding 28 against Coventry - damaging their 'goal' difference.

Pity fly-half Ramiro Pez - he missed eight of his 10 kicks at goal. With things returning to normal in both business and rugby, it looks like strategy and crafty team changes are going to decide the next two managers to receive tickets to see Wales play in the 2002 Six Nations Tournament at the Millennium Stadium.
