Fantasy tragics don’t despair, just because the NRL is having a break this weekend it doesn’t mean you can’t have a bit of fun with a Match Day Fantasy competition which takes in the Test match on Friday night.
Our resident expert Megan Potts has provided her thoughts, but with only six on your team deciding who makes it out of the quality players on offer, is going to be some sort of juggling act.

If you love NRL Fantasy and cannot deal with missing a week (told you it was addictive), then you must give the Match Day Fantasy a try for the Test Match on Friday night.
It works along the same lines as the regular Fantasy League, however from the Australian and New Zealand team you choose only 6 players to be in your team - one fullback/winger, one centre, one hooker, one half, one front row forward and a second row forward.
With no salary cap restrictions I'm liking Cameron Smith, Corey Parker and Johnathan Thurston, usually three big scorers and can't wait to see them perform in the same team.
Someone to consider for a point of difference might be Luke Lewis, who has been consistent for the Sharks week to week, however coming off the bench he may get limited minutes. But you just never know how it will play out and sometime you have to be willing to take a few risks.
With quality players representing Australia and New Zealand it's going to be a challenge to only pick 6 players.
Don't forget to pick your captain and vice-captain as you get triple points for captain and double for vice-captain. This choice could make all the difference
Make sure you get your team in before the game starts and if you have the highest scoring team, you’re in for a chance of winning an awesome cash prize of $500 and two Category 1 tickets to the NRL Grand Final.
