WHAT IS THE PROCESS WITH PLAYERS AVAILABLE FOR SELECTION AND TEAM CHANGES?

We aim to have all squad players available for selection in each challenge however there could be occasions when this is not possible due to a late player addition to a team squad. In this scenario any player that will be playing in a match will be added as a selection when the teams are confirmed.

All players that are named in team squads to play will display an orange label with the letter "N".

_

HOW DO I KNOW WHEN THE TEAMS HAVE BEEN CONFIRMED?

Teams will be confirmed approximately 10 - 20 minutes prior to the commencement of a match.

Players that have been confirmed to play will have a green label with the letter "C" displayed next to their name. Players that have been ruled out of the match will have a red label with the letter "O" displayed next to their name.

Any player label displayed should be used as a guide only. It is the entrants responsibility to determine and select players confirmed to play in a scheduled game.

_

WHAT HAPPENS IF MY SELECTED PLAYER IS RULED OUT?

Unfortunately you will not receive any points for this player.

_

CAN THE 12th MAN SCORE POINTS?

No.

_

WHEN DO THE STATISTICS AND POINTS GET CONFIRMED?

At the completion of each game all statistics and points will go through a review process to ensure accuracy. The time it takes to conduct this review process can vary but normally it is completed within 1-2 hours of match completion. As a result of the review process some statistics/points and an entrants position may change.

Challenge status will be displayed as "Completed" after all statistics/points have been reviewed and deemed accurate.
