1.3 Entries to the Game can only be made via the Site. No applications to enter made in any other manner will be accepted. Where an application is accepted, it will be known as an "Entry" and you will become known as an "Entrant" in the terms below.

1.4 When an Entrant enters a team ('Team') into the Game they agree to these Terms and Conditions. If the Entrant does not agree with any of these Terms and Conditions they should not use the Site, because by using the Site an Entrant will be deemed to have irrevocably agreed to these Terms and Conditions.

1.5 The Game will run from the first Super League regular season match in the 2017 season to the completion of the final Super 8s match in the 2017 Super League season (the "Season") and an Entrant can enter a Team into the Game at any point during the Season.

1.6 Please note that these Terms and Conditions may be revised and reissued without notice at any time by updating this posting and the Entrant shall agree that no liability shall attach to the Organisers and that they have no right to claim any compensation as a result thereof. Entrants should visit this page regularly to review the current Terms and Conditions, since their continued use of the Site will be deemed as irrevocable acceptance of any revisions. These Terms and Conditions were last updated on 05 January 2017.

1.7 The Operators will assume (and by using the Site the Entrant will warrant that) that any Entrant shall have legal capacity to enter into the agreement set out in these Terms and Conditions (i.e. that each Entrant is of sufficient age and mental capacity and are otherwise entitled to be legally bound in contract).

1.8 The Operators reserve the right to modify a team without prior notice should The Operators discover a team is operating outside the rules of the game. This may result in the loss or gain of Points, Transfers, Interchanges and Overall Position.

2 ELIGIBILITY

2.1 Up to three teams are permitted per registered e-mail address.

2.2 There is no minimum age to be Super League Team in 2017

2.3 The Operators reserve the right to refuse to accept any Entry which, in their opinion, does not comply with the Terms and Conditions of the Game or which contravenes the spirit of the Game. The Operators further have an absolute discretion to disqualify any Entry, or vary, amend or waive the rules of the Game at any time and Entrants agree that no liability shall attach to the Operators as a result thereof and that the exercise of such discretion shall not result in any compensation being payable or paid to any Entrant. It is a condition of Entry that all rules are accepted as final and that the Entrant agrees to abide by these rules.

3 TEAM NAMES

3.1 Entrants must choose a name for each Team entered up to 25 characters long.

3.2 Each Team name entered must be different and the Operators may amend a Team name which is identical to another Team name previously submitted.

4 GAME RULES

4.1 The Game will be governed by the Game Rules from time to time published on the Site by the Company ("Game Rules"). The Company reserves the right to alter, amend or supplement the Game Rules from time to time in its absolute discretion in the event of any circumstances beyond its reasonable control arising or where it considers it desirable to do so.

4.2 To play the Game an Entrant must select a 17 man squad from the players available. Every available player is given a fantasy value and assigned a positional category of Back, Half Back or Forward. Each Team must be made up of one player selected in each on-field position from 1-13, must cost a maximum of £1.825 million and is limited to three players from each Betfred Super League team. The players an Entrant selects in the interchange positions do not score in the same way as players in positions 1 to 13. The players that the Entrant selects as interchange players may now only be used to make interchanges between the bench and starting 13 to cover injuries etc. Interchanges are no longer available during the weekend and instead will operate only, on an unlimited basis, between midnight Sunday and Noon Thursday.

4.3 Eligible matches are only those Betfred Super League fixtures played in the Season (the "Eligible Matches"). For the avoidance of doubt any Cup, International or Challenge Cup games will not be Eligible Matches.

4.4 The players an Entrant selects for a Team will earn points throughout the Season for good performance and lose points for errors and poor discipline in Eligible Matches (full scoring criteria in clause 4.8 below).

4.5 The points awarded are adjudicated by Opta Sports Data and the Company's decision as to the awarding of points is final. Any points or values which are incorrectly assigned to a player of team may be corrected at the Company's discretion.

4.6 The Company cannot accept any liability if matches on which the Game is based are cancelled or postponed. Where matches are rearranged points will be allocated to Teams as per the date when the match is actually played.

4.7 Teams will not score points until they have been submitted. For the purposes of the Game and an Entrant's use of the Site, the Company's computer record of an Entry will be considered to be an Entry. The Company has the right to reject what, in their sole discretion, they consider to be incomplete, inaccurate or a corrupted Entry.

5 PLAYER DATABASE

5.1 The player database will consist of all the players in the Betfred Super League squads prior to the Season start.

If the player is new to the Super League he will be manually assigned a value by Super League Dream Team based upon on his previous career record.

5.2 As players arrive or leave Super League the Company will aim to add or remove them to or from the database as soon as possible, though no timescales are guaranteed. When a player is transferred between Super League teams an Entrant's Team is unaffected even if the three player per Team rule is then broken. If a player leaves the Super League he will cease to score points. Player values are never changed throughout the Season.

5.3 Player values assigned to players in no way represent information held by the Promoter and are independently assigned to players based on statistical data solely for the purpose of the Game

6 TRANSFERS

An Entrant will only score points for players that are in a Team (and starting 13) at Thursday 12 Noon before they play. The time of transfers will be recorded as per the server clock. Points scored by a player in matches played before he is transferred into a Team will not be added to a Team's score.

6.2 Unlimited transfers can be made before Thursday 12 Noon prior to the first Eligible Match. The time of transfers will be recorded as per the server clock.
