Dream Team Rules

2. You may not pick more than 1 player from the same state/territory. You may also pick an overseas player for your team but no more than 1.
3. The total rating of your 6 players is to be no higher than 8000 (an average of 1333 per player)
4. Entries must be received by 9:00pm Australian Western Time on Friday 14th April (11pm Eastern time). Entries to be sent to John Hamilton via email firstname.lastname@example.org, by text 0400 650 349 or by direct message on Facebook
5. You may change your team entry as many times as you want before the deadline. After this, no changes to teams will be permitted. If multiple entries for each person are received, the most recent entry will be the one used to calculate the competition
6. If a player you selected withdraws from the competition prior to entering, you will have until lunch on day 1 of the competition to choose a replacement. Otherwise, the next highest rated player eligible for your team will be automatically substituted.
