    2012 Marathon Stadium Draft will run again this year. Apply for a position now.

    However, please be aware if you were known in previous years to slow the comp up or not come on during the off season, you may not be eligible.

    YOU MUST be on the forums regularly during the off season (preference once a day)

    If you are going on holidays it is vital you notify an admin or mod so we can arrange to put your picks through for you.

    There will be a maximum 20 teams entered this year, so be quick!

    Leave your Name - Team Name - And best way of contact other than mobile number (so provide Facebook account, email and Twitter if you have them) - that is for if we need to contact you to make your picks. But that will be a rare case because if we need to keep reminding you, we will simply remove your team.

    To recap on the rules:

    Each side chooses 22 players (possibly to be reassessed when we reach the end of the draft, if we think there's enough players to go up to 25 per team) - these can be made up of up to FOUR Superleague players, ONE retiree (a player who finished playing in the NRL during 2010 or 2011) and an unlimited amount of NRL, Toyota Cup, NSW Cup, Queensland Cup, or bush football players within Australia.

    Each player gets one pick, until round 19 when we start doing two picks at once. Each random order will be run through TWO times, first from top to bottom, the reversed. Unlike last year where we went through two rounds.

    Then the order will be re-randomised again.

    This year I will use a downloader 'The Hat' which is a system that picks names out of a hat.

    Each player has 24 hours to make their pick. This is in case you are unable to get to a computer during this time, however I encourage you to make your pick ASAP, for the benefit of other players in the game.

    If a player pulls out, and nobody steps up to take over the side, that side's players that have already been chosen are OUT of the draft and will not be available for selection by any other team.

    There will be two trading windows. During this time, trades arranged with other teams can be announced. These could be a straight player for player swap, or several players from one team for one player from another. If a team ends up with less than 22 players, they can make more selections to fill up their squad at the end of the draft (once all other teams are full).

    Trades are negotiated through private message with both coaches, and then applied through Alicia where both coaches need to send me confirmation of the trade.

    The trading windows are the rounds to choose players 14 and 15, and again in the final two rounds of selections.

    There will also be two new advantages for the game, and they will be announced when it starts.

    Place your entries now and we will get started shortly.

    Note: If a new member registers simply to play the game, they may not be considered over a loyal MS member.

    Idiot :) Just kidding, ok so we do a random order each round and each person takes a turn in building their own team. However, once that player has been taken you cant choose them again. It's like your recruiting your own team with any players in the NRL, NYC, NSW Cup, ESL etc

    So there are no advantages this year I've removed the previous drafts so you cant look back on there and find players that way.

    Question will this be based on 2012 rosters or 2013? So if any players from England get picked that are moving to NRL next year will they be counted as NRL or Super league players if that makes sense?

    2012 Marathon Stadium Draft - Applicants

    Just a heads up considering you didn't finish last year it's unlikely you will get a spot this year ahead of others. You held us up heaps.
