An update on the 2020 NRL Fantasy season.
The 2020 NRL season has been suspended after Round 2, as such the 2020 Fantasy season is also in a period of undefined suspension in pre-Round 3 state. Any further updates on this will be posted via NRL.com, here at roosters.com.au, sent via email &/or posted to social channels.
As the competition had officially begun in standard advertised format, your Fantasy scoring and the associated league ladders and rankings remain unaffected. The games remain active, the fixtures and the season length will be adjusted if and when the competition is rescheduled.
The NRL remains committed to a 2020 season, so your Fantasy season will be extended as well should the 2020 NRL competition recommence. If and when the 2020 season is rescheduled the Fantasy season will realign accordingly (e.g. the last round(s) of the regular season will align to your head-to-head Fantasy league finals series) and let you all know the whats, whens and wherefores.
There may also be then need to make some other adjustments to the advertised game play (e.g. reduction in dual-position (DPP) updates). If these are required they will be clearly communicated well before the next round of play gets underway.
As the game remains in pre-Round 3 state, you can continue to interact as if the new round is imminent under the rules of Round 3 (e.g. make up to two trades, reverse those trade(s), review player stats and past match stats etc).
Fantasy Draft is also suspended under the same conditions, so team-to-team trading, waiver wire and RFA trades can continue under the rules of your individual league(s).
Attempts will be made to keep casualty, judicary and other relevant updates current, but there is likely to be some lag time with this information. Once the season restart is known this information will be brought up to date quickly.
The commitment to fulfilling prizes is still there. All set prizing for the rounds already played has been awarded and winners have been contacted by email from firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you think you may have won a weekly prize in Rounds 1 or 2, please check out the Prizes page in the Help section of the Fantasy website to confirm it or search for the email in your registered email inbox.
Going forward there will be further announcements about future-round prizes. The intention is to award all the advertised prizes, adjusted for a reduced season, as long as the 2020 season does recommence.
At this stage it is unknown when or if the season will recommence therefore we have not determined how Coach subscriptions will be handled. There are a number of possibilities and fans will be updated once the extent of the reduced season is known. Rest assured Coach subscribers will not be left in the lurch.
