TENTATIVE SCORING and GROUP SCHEDULES


GROUP SCHEDULE
MD1: 2 v 5, 3 v 4, 1 Bye
MD2: 1 v 2, 3 v 5, 4 Bye
MD3: 1 v 3, 4 v 5, 2 Bye
MD4: 1 v 4, 2 v 3, 5 Bye
MD5: 1 v 5, 2 v 4, 3 Bye




Much as I’d like to give extra time for RP with gap days, it doesn’t seem like that will do much good right now, with all the other tournaments/Cups happening simultaneously across NSS that will still span an expanded schedule. Therefore, we will do a scorination every night starting 12 Nov. Cut off will be 2000 US ET each night, unless otherwise noted in the RUWC 29 Discussion/OOC thread. Knockout stages are single elimination, from Round of 16 on.

Group MD 1: 12 Nov
Group MD 2: 13 Nov
Group MD 3: 14 Nov
Group MD 4: 15 Nov
Group MD 5: 16 Nov
Round of 16: 17 Nov
Quarterfinals: 19 Nov
Semifinals: 20 Nov
Finals: 21 Nov


RP EFFECT ON SCORING

Rosters will be given considerable weight for RP bonus. It is a courtesy to other players in order for them to craft their RP and goes to the foundation of RP on this site: collaboration and cooperation. Before you put forth any other RP, please really consider putting up a roster. As per usual, quality is always preferred over quantity, and quantity does not suffice in place of quality.

Hutanjia, with the volume of matches to be officiated and a lack of internationally sanctioned officials, flew in all NSRB sanctioned officials with primary and secondary efficiency in the Union code, with all perks due and paid airfare.
Should you be the first, before your opponent, to RP your match, please visit the Match Officials Thread to select which Referee, TMO, and 2 touch judges would have officiated your match. Logically, they would not be from either nation participating in the match.


POINTS AND TIEBREAKERS

Points are awarded: win = 4, draw = 2, loss by 7 or less pts = 1, loss by more than 7 pts = 0
Tiebreakers
1. Overall points
2. Point differential
3. H2H
4. Wins
5. Coin toss

With 40 teams, we will have the top 2 teams from each group, and no others, moving on to the knockout stages, which will start with the Round of 16 (Octofinals). Those who do not make it into the top 2 Group spots will stop their journey in the Cup at Group MD 5.




ROLEPLAY PERMISSIONS

This is also a must for cooperative RP between you and your fellow competing player/nations. Please put a copy in your roster post with the permissions you will allow.

THE ISLANDS


The Capital of the Republic is Chastille, on the Northwestern corner of the island of Nevorn.
The second biggest city is Vesselle, the largest metropolis on Nesselberg, the second island of Hutanjia. Molnitha, in Northeastern Nevorn, used to be the second biggest city, but was overtaken in population and metropolitan spread within the last few years.

Nevorn is idyllic with rolling hills, patches of tropical forest and large plantations. There are several cities that have grown around the banana, plantain, and other fruit industries, as well as rice, quinoa, and millet plantations. Fishing has always been a large industry across Hutanjia, as well as most of Wishtonia, and it has remained a strong part of the Hutanjian economy, and almost over-relied on during the War years.

Nesselberg Island consists of Vesselle and suburbs surrounding, as well as cleared areas and Hutanjian Republican military facilities surrounding the civilian areas, including a major air base, naval port, sub pen, and ranger and marine barracks and training areas. The southern two thirds of the island are divided from this northern end by a heavily reinforced wall, minefields, towers, pillboxes, and other fortifications. There are just a few gateways along the Wall. Many in the south demand the Wall come down so they are not separated from the rest of Nesselberg, and Hutanjia

Beyond the wall leading to Southern Nesselberg lies thick jungle with small farming and fishing villages interspersed here and there, firebases and outposts, resource mines, and constantly shifting rebel camps of the UFF insurgency supported by The Cardwith Islands, and the FNM (Free Nesselberg Movement) which opposes both the UFF presence and that of the Hutanjian government. Hutanjian troops, USG Security Corporation contractor teams, and allied special operations forces ‘train’ in this area by hunting and eradicating the insurgent rebels.

Focusing back on the north where the focus should stay, Vesselle is perfectly safe (thanks to the large military presence) and has all the amenities of a major cosmopolitan city with world class restaurants, museums, recreational resorts and sporting stadiums, where rugby is king, and Vessellians bide their time by playing association football and competing in boating races until they can watch or play in their next rugby match. The same could be said for many coastal cities on Nevorn.


Image


THE GOVERNMENT

President Roderique Hespatu is on his fourth term, third elected. He took over after the King and Queen were regicided in a coup, which he helped to defeat and send the coup leader, Mongoose Atave, fleeing. Rather than reinstall the monarchy with its many problems, he decided to establish the current republic, in a controversial move.

The legislative assembly is the Tangata, a unicameral parliamentary body consisting of 36 Tangatars, led by one Rangatar, who is the second in line to lead the Republic. They convene in the Runanga, which was formerly the old Palace from the days of the Otumlo Dynasty.


LAWS


Hutanjian society is quite relaxed about many things, but there are some things that are not acceptable and prosecutable by local and national law enforcement.

Marijuana, hashish, and mild hallucinogens are allowed, but regulated, while hard narcotics and opiates are quite illegal. There are no restrictions on alcohol and tobacco.

Since the War, home militias were disbanded and firearms are no longer allowed on public streets, in buildings, or on commercial and retail property. Cities have varying penalties for such violations of open carrying of firearms. After the War, it became tougher to regulate them as returning veterans brought home captured Kalashnikovs and other foreign weapons, along with some ‘losing’ their service rifles and sidearms. However, settling differences with firearms can be a capital offense and crackdowns on heavily armed criminal gangs has been an ongoing and mostly successful effort.

Relations with minors is an executable offense in most instances, especially offenses committed by individuals age 20 or older.

Visitors caught with “Marxist propaganda”, especially items originating from the Cardwith Islands, can face heavy fines. Distributing or posting Marxist propaganda means certain imprisonment.


Image


OTHER NOTABLE ITEMS


The majority of Hutanjians are of the Huju tribe, which was a powerful ancient Wishtonian Kingdom for centuries before finally being conquered by Gaul, who then lost the Wishton to their Anglo enemies. They gained independence in 1946 and spent some tumultuous years as the Otumlo dynasty re-established rule after nearly a four century absence.

Hutanjians are generally of the Polynesian ethnicity. There are a few Cardwithians still in Hutanjia despite being heavily persecuted, and they can generally be distinguished by their similar to Melanesian ethnicity. Hutanjians speak English, but many people in rural areas still speak the native Wishtonian tribal languages or a patois mix with some Anglo and French words.

The Tupa is the main currency, but due to fast tracked recovery efforts, NS Dollars are still widely, if not officially, accepted. The current exchange rate is 28 Tupas = 1 NSD. 100 Wohanga = 1 Tupa. Wohanga have not been used, except for banking and government calculations, for a decade due to inflation.

Rum, pulque and cane liquor are very popular choices for drinks. Many international liquors and beers are imported, such as Burgunden Breus

The War was devastating and you will still encounter many veterans trying to reintegrate into civilian life. A lot of them work on the fishing and cargo trawler crews that traverse the ports, work in the foreign mines, or foreign corporate factories that are springing up in the cities. Some are too debilitated and work in more stationary jobs or reside in veteran’s homes. Most of the fighting was over on Southern Nesselberg and the Cardwiths, so you won’t find battlefields on Nevorn, but you will find emotional scarring that affected the last two generations of men and women.

To those visitors to Wishtonia who may find themselves with time on their hands either prior to, or after the Cup, a trip to Kenega (approx. 2200 km to the North) is encouraged.
A one island commonwealth of the Anglo Kingdom, Kenega has prospered and seen no war or unrest, unlike most of Wishtonia, over the last half century. To the south, Kenega City and its environs and suburbs have been described as a hedonist paradise where just about anything is legal, including prostitution, gambling and light narcotics, and teaming with resorts, casinos, luxurious hotels, world class restaurants, and art galleries.
To the north lie virtually undisturbed national preserves teaming with wildlife (some of it quite deadly), hiking trails in the mountains, safari tours, and much more tranquil resorts limited to the immediate environs of Ouropeka on the north coast. The Western coast is off limits to visitors, being home to the Anglo/Kenegan Defense joint forces and services base at Faronham. The majority of Kenegans are of native Polynesian/Anglo mixed descent.

The Republic of Hutanjia has encouraged participation in international sport by national teams and individual athletes. Rugby union is probably the most popular sport in the nation, with rugby league, sevens, and football/soccer close behind, along with some boating sports. Hutanjia has been building up and saving for hosting a World Cup class event for a long time and now they have their chance. It cannot be stressed enough how important this is to the Republic of Hutanjia, and to a greater extent, all of Wishtonia, to host this world class sporting event.



STADIUMS

King Otumlo Stadium is named for the first historic King of Hutanjia many centuries ago. King Popilu I Stadium and Queen Urtea Sports Complex are named for the last King and Queen of Hutanjia, slain by Milton “The Mongoose” Atave, the state security chief, in an unsuccessful coup mid-Hutanjian War. Their children, nieces and nephews reside and attend school in exile in Neu Engollon, protected by the elite Diplomatic Guard Corps there. General Wakala was a popular Hutanjian general killed in a Cardwithian commando strike. Fera Darjugko was a famous Hutanjian poet who got her start in the 1970’s. The other stadiums have less political and tragic basis, but important historic and poetic reasons for their nomenclature.

National Rugby Union Squad of The Republic of
Port Ember
"The Dragons"


Brief Overview of Port Ember

The Republic of Port Ember is a nation comprising a tropical archipelago within the Northern Ocean, and is considered a regional superpower and international economic giant. The tropical nation is governed as a constitutional democracy in the form of a Republic. The nation considers itself a champion for personal liberty and economic freedom, and is seen as one of the most free and wealthiest nations in the world. The two billion citizens are considered to be world wise and innovative, considering the art of world trade & travel, making money and engaging in bar brawls as the foundation of their national culture. The nation also possesses two colonies - Braziliztan and Port Arthur which they gained during bloody wars to uphold international freedom and human rights.

Team History:

Despite Rugby Union being a very popular sport within the Republic, it could never garner the sufficient economical and political support it required in order to compete on the international stage - instead remaining confined to university and local private club level.

Just prior to the commencement of the 28th rendition of the Rugby World Cup, the local and university teams gathered together a ragtag team, and managed to earn an invite to the grandest stage of them all for their sport. As could be expected, it went absolutely terribly. The team played four matches in the group stages - losing all four matches, without picking up a single try.

Despite the utter humiliation that the team, and the entire nation by extension suffered at the hands of the World Cup - it did result in a silver lining. The ruling government realised that there was an ever growing demand for the sport to be taken seriously on a national level - and in reply, the Port Ember Rugby Union (PERU) was established, in an effort to professionalise the sport.

Immediately after its formation, PERU followed the example of the Port Ember Football Association, and established a young international team who consisted of young talent who had zero club affiliations at that moment. The idea was to train up a national team of players, to conform to international standards and skills - who could be assigned to newly established professional clubs, after international exposure and a new fanbase were established, which would raise the standard of the sport throughout the nation.

This project was launched with one Garry Keeves as the head coach, training the team everyday for 4 years. Just prior to the commencement of World Cup 29, Garry left the project, and hired a Neu Engollian in his place, one Alex Renvier, to lead the team to glory and experience.

Thus, despite this being the second World Cup for Port Ember, due to this being the first "unified, professional" attempt, the nation is treating this as their Baptism of Fire for their international showing - hoping to shock the world to attention.

The team is affectionately known as "The Dragons", by their fans and the media - in reference to the team's logo, which itself is based on the nation's national animal - the Komodo Dragon.

Typical Playstyle

Port Ember typically plays towards their strengths, which in this case, would be the physical size and strength of their front pack. They will always attempt to play offensive running rugby, attempting to smash through their opponents with brute force. Their secret ingredient seems to be the attempt at maintaining constant pressure on the opposition, in an attempt to tire them out and tear them down physically.




Kit

Please note that both the logo and the kit was designed by the amazingly talented - saint of a man - Lisander




Fans

Due to the fact that this will be the first showing of the national team as an organised, united and professional team, it has not yet managed to build a large base of dedicated fans. However, due to the recent surge in popularity of sports in general within the nation - a small yet rowdy fanbase is expected to follow their team as they take on the world.

The official fanclub of the squad is known as "The Traveling Buccaneers", and can be identified at the games due to being painted completely blue with body paint, and some wielding trumpets.

RUWC 29 - Ko-orenite National Team
Image


Backs

Among the backs, Ewell is a star of the game despite his young age. As a member of the Greencaster Galaxy, he's already won a title once. Bebenna is also a RUWC veteran at the age of 21, a physically perfect centre. A new generation of players is taking over, which can be seen from the wingers, with just Alardice over the age of 22. The Alardice-yHardyllyn combination can be one to watch as well.

Fullbacks
Sinclair Ewell (22) - Greencaster Galaxy
Kagageerra Bilaranora (26) - Tarrashall Travellers

Wingers
Tei Warmeling (20) - Mayara Wanderers-Vulpecula
Jacob Alardice (23) - Idyllwild Coronae
Morton Carson (21) - Mawrystwyth Phoenix

Centres
Burrula Bebenna (21) - Tarrashall Travellers
Careis yHardyllyn (26) - Mawrystwyth Phoenix
Cecil Grain (30) - Ansonville Comets

Halves
These positions are generally fairly rigid in their execution. The fly half is the tactician, the kicker, and one to stay out of mauls and rucks. The scrum half does some more dirty work, can kick in a pinch, but otherwise is there to direct the ball around as far as the fly half lets him. French isn't an all-time great in the Ko-orenite league but has done the job for his team and for Gehrenna for over a decade now. yTebetwd and Ballesdens are both creative and energetic, and yTebetwd especially represents a large Mawrystwyth Phoenix contingent.

Fly-halves
Linwood French (32) - Aubury Swans
Jinnamoora Amaranga (29) - Tarrashall Travellers

Scrum-halves
Lichmal yTebetwd (22) - Mawrystwyth Phoenix
Va Ballesdens (21) - Idyllwild Coronae

Forwards
The tendency for the team to rely on its forwards has waned. It's all about the centres and wingers now. Even so, the forwards harbour some incredible and unexpected talent. Some of these players are quicker than you'd give them credit for, and have a strong scoring drive. Grootemarsink, Weddall, Holden, and yTewnchaeg are among the absolute all-time greats our league has ever seen.

Number 8
Bayou Grootemarsink (21) - Tarrashall Travellers

Flankers
Merrill Connor (23) - Willowbourne Foxes
Joseph Meahon (28) - Idyllwild Coronae
Neiran yGhearyc (23) - Mawrystwyth Phoenix

Locks
Gene Weddall (22) - Idyllwild Coronae
Bulya Nichols (32) - Mayara Wanderers-Vulpecula
Llafawm yMhalmawm (25) - Llandy Bulls

Props
Cowan Holden (23) - Mayara Wanderers-Vulpecula
Willoughby Zephyr (28) - Greencaster Galaxy
Cicero Moore (27) - Ansonville Comets

Hookers
Riyu Iwayama (22) - Mawrystwyth Phoenix
Newddlawdd yTewnchaeg (31) - Llandy Bulls

Style
Style mod: -5. Ko-oren plays an extremely risk-averse style with an emphasis on kicking (both defensively and offensively).

Yes to everything besides injuries/deaths. As you see, I don't have the largest playerbase, so I can't exactly replace people on the fly... But as long as nobody gets hurt, do whatever the heck you well please. Creative imaginations are a good thing.

Style mod: 0


Rugby is the third most popular sport in Elejamie, behind ice hockey and football. While rugby league has a small but loyal fanbase and the ERC Sevens (held before the start of the ERC season) is a massive success, it's rugby union that reigns supreme in Elejamie. With the ERC being very successful since its inaugural season in 1978/79, the ERC Grand Final being one of the most-watched sporting events in the country and the Elejamian Universities XV (an all-star team made up of the best players from universities around the country) having an annual tour that tends to sell very well, as well as a plethora of talent over the years, it's safe to say that rugby union will be popular in Elejamie for years to come.

In the last tournament, Elejamie went into the contest as the reigning champions and were also a slight favourites to get the double. And, indeed, they showed that they still had it when they got a 15-3 opening win against Port Ember and they shut out Aimena 19-0 to retain the group lead. Due to their bye day they slipped down to second. They'd remain second even after beating hosts Kelssek 7-0 before grabbing a 22-3 win over the Ross Isles to finish as group leaders. Afterwards, they beat Apox 30-6 in the Round of 16 and then beat Hutanjia 25-10 to set up a rematch against Abanhfleft in the semi-finals. They won that match 30-15 and set up a date for the final, where they had a rematch against Ko-oren. Unfortunately, the Dragonflies would end up being the victors as they won the match 9-0 to grab their third trophy.

And now they're back. With the same team as last time, including Bruce Hernández who's planning to retire from both domestic and international rugby at the end of the season, they're hoping to avenge their loss and bring home their second piece of silverware. Will they be able to achieve their goal? Will they end up falling short again? And if they do make it to the final, will they face someone else for a change or will they have to take on Ko-oren a third time (much like how there was Elejamie vs Valanora for three straight WCoHs)? I'm not sure either but it should be fun.

Laneriti Stadium, Coventry, AVEN
Image

Home to the national football team and the national rugby union team, Laneriti Stadium was built in 1955 after the Elejamian FA decided on a permanent ground for the national football team. After narrowing down 400 options down to three, they eventually decided to name it after Arik Lanerit (aka Laneriti, d. 1915), a famous Iyilim politician who helped shape this country just as it was getting started. Originally designed to fit 60,000 people, it was expanded in the mid-90s to accomodate 82,500, which has remained the official capacity ever since. It has hosted every single Cup of Elejamie final since 2000 (as well as 23 previous cup finals before that) and all but one ERC (Elejamian Rugby Championship) Grand Final since the play-offs were introduced in time for the start of the 1990-91 ERC season; due to scheduling conflictments, the 2011 Grand Final was played at the Edgebaston Dome, with the Murgon Bullfrogs beating the Auckhampton Birch Trees 20-15 in extra time.

The stadium in the background is the Starmath Den, home ground of the Starmath Rovers football team in League Two and Coventry Jesters rugby union team, which play in the Elejamian Rugby Championship, having been promoted at the end of the last season. It's also used as the training ground for the national football/soccer team, with the national rugby (both codes) team having its own training ground outside of Coventry. It can also hold up to 15,000 people.

Placely Placington rugby league union team something or other

Style Mod: +5
Colours: Black and white


Placely Placington are a somewhat familiar name to those who participate in the WorldVision Song Contest. From humble beginnings when their chief scientist Dave the Hobo interrupted his entry midway to get a drink from a vending machine backstage to their entrant from the most recently completed contest not only crying so hard his eyes fell out but his backing band had to bail on him because they just couldn't take him seriously, they are considered to be one of the most existent nations taking part in the contest. And, in an attempt to gain more money to pay off that crippling debt they got from banning their economy, they've decided to repeat what they did some time ago with a different code and enter the Rugby Union World Cup. After all, they somehow made it to the Rugby League World Cup Round of 16 so they clearly did something right.

The downside? There were no rugby union players in Placely Placington. There were still no rugby players in Placely Placington, full stop. There was still a soccer player, who plays in all the positions for both of the country's teams, but he definitely wouldn't have an idea of how to play this sport. So naturally Chief President Man Dave McDaverson and his cabinet decided to repeat what they did with the rugby league tem. They cloned a whole bunch of Test Subjects, the grunts of the entire nation. The sorts who literally power the nation by pushing this big wheel with spokes that generates electricity. Sure they break down and die a lot, even by Placingtonian standards, but they can always clone some more. Sure they were rank outsiders to the point where they'll need three digit scoreboards to truly convey how badly they got beaten but they could always defy the odds. Maybe miracles can happen again.

Godmod injuries to my players: Y. Deaths are not just allowed but also encouraged due to the nature of Placely Placington. Just as long as you don't make it too gory (just to avoid moderator intervention) you can kill off as many Test Subjects as you want however you want. Bonus points if you try and be as creative or as ludicrous (i.e. one of the Test Subjects having a bizarrely fatal allergy to air) as possible. Besides, the Clonomat's been brought over so they can easily bring back a new player as if nothing's happened.
Hand out yellow cards (sin bin) to my players: Y. No limits.
Hand out red cards (sending off) to my players: Y. Also no limits.
Godmod other events: Anything's allowed up to the dissolution of Placely Placington. Much like its denizens, Placely Placington can never truly die, it just dies for a little bit then comes back as if nothing's happened.


  • Because everyone in Placely Placington is an idiot, the Test Subjects themselves no exception, you're more than welcome to have any of the Test Subjects completely mess up the laws. Such as spiking the ball when they make it past the try line instead of putting it down for a try.
  • There is no IC link between Elejamie (my main) and Placely Placington, just to let everyone know.
  • This nation is a joke nation that was entered solely as a numbers puppet. I do not care how well it does.
  • In the event that I RP with this nation, I'd like all of my RP bonus to go directly towards my main nation (Elejamie) instead of this one. If this is not allowed, I'll delete this list point.

Kriegiersien Rugby Union National team


Sadly the last flops in sport lead to a problem. The Rugby Union team didn’t get a budget to go to Hutanjia. So once more the beer barons who finance the beer league had to jump in for a Rugby contest.

The barons decided to start with a team consisting out of the mascots of their breweries and amateur players who would change their name to beer products.

Squad:

But they not only sponsored the travel, board and lodging they even invested in own jerseys. Through a misunderstanding the requested logo of a cold beer on the shirt became a cold bear.

Sajnur National Rugby Team


The Sajnuran Rugby Union has sent a team to the 29th Rugby Union World Cup for the country's third attempt at rugby success. The SRU has largely kept the core of players that have turned up to the previous two tournaments, though some changes to the travelling party have been made. The big change, however, is the non-return of Kersudin, the manager from the first two World Cup teams. In his place is Evarista, and with them comes dedicated coaches for the forwards and backs in the form of Trevor Jafari and Zenayda Selasi. The added expertise is hoped to improve the form of the 17th ranked nation and potentially secure a knockout berth for the first time.

Making such a feat more plausible is the tournament format. A record forty teams have turned up, organised into eight groups of five, and the top two from each group go to the round of sixteen. A whopping twenty of those teams, or half the competition, are unranked. This allowed Sajnur to secure a spot in Pot Two for the group draw, and the Pot Three side drawn with them in Group F is the unranked United Hemand Insia. The only other ranked team in the group is Alice Bay, and two ranked teams fighting for two spots out of the group stage makes this a golden opportunity for Sajnur. There's no guarantee that it will be taken advantage of, but there is promise. To take advantage of that promise, Evarista has insisted on a more offensive setup than that of Kersudin, and it is hoped that the maximum attack approach will secure bonus points for the team.

The Hannasean Hamsters
Image


Rugby union is the most popular winter sport in the Guild Federation, and yet surprisingly the last of the three codes in which the Hamsters are to make their debuts. After relatively unpromising showings at the RLWC and AVBF Sevens could be written as the performances of amateurs or second-raters, this time there are no excuses. Rugby Hannasea has drawn as strong a squad as it can muster from across Ultimate Rugby. Will they work together as a team? Will they be the unranked team that breaks out? Will they surprise everyone with a storming run to the playoffs?

No.


Squad

A standard 31-player squad has been selected. Injury replacements will be called up only in the event the player is unable to continue the tournament. Unless otherwise stated, the first, or first two, players listed for each position will start.

Front row

Hooker Sam Connor New Blopping Magic Ants
Hooker Kian Burke Angelwood Electro-Weasels
Hooker Sonny Weaving Silver Creek Jaguars
Loosehead prop Zeke Francis Pearl City Raptors
Loosehead prop Scott Hopkins Oakwood Orcas
Tighthead prop Hunter Bennett (vc) Pintook Super Badgers
Tighthead prop Cooper Hewson Orcas
Tighthead prop Harrison Bell Deer River Pharoahs

Second row

Lock Kaiden Porter Raptors
Lock Nate Hill Jaguars
Lock Coby Ross Coral Coast Werewolves
Lock/flanker Jacob Harvey Super Badgers

Back row

Openside flanker Joe Hunter (c) Jaguars
Flanker/no. 8 Nathan Horne Greenville Mystics
No. 8 Ryan Perry Pearl City Icelandic
No. 8/flanker Owen Moore Kent Dæmons
Blindside flanker/lock Eric Williamson Orcas

Half-backs

Scrum-half Braylen Vargas Magic Ants
Scrum-half Tommy Rhodes Jaguars
Fly-half Tom Pickett Icelandic
Fly-half/inside centre Jayson Parker Icelandic
Fly-half Adam Russell Dæmons

Backs

Inside centre Matteo Walsh Pharoahs
Outside centre Ben Campbell Pharoahs
Outside centre Montgomery Moss Raptors
Wing Harley Stevens Magic Ants
Wing Billy Ball Mystics
Wing Ethan Price Raptors
Wing/outside centre Jake Allen Jaguars
Fullback Jack Wright Mystics
Fullback/wing Luke Marsh Werewolves


The Hamsters play a fairly high tempo attacking style low on technical discipline, so expect messy scrums and infringements at the break-down, and flashy passing moves in the backs that sometimes come off, sometimes lead to calamity. Two familiar faces re-appear: Ethan Price could end up representing the Federation in all three codes, having played League as an amateur, tried out Sevens, and now been rushed into the squad after a breakout season with Raptors; and Jayson Parker, Olympic hero, might get his shot at glory. Both start on the bench.

Style modifier: +5

Should my opponent RPs first, they may do the following:
Choose my try scorers: Y
Choose my goal scorers: N, use Pickett for standard kicks and Wright for long penalties, Parker as back-up or with a cheeky droppy
Godmod scoring events: N
RP injuries to my players: N
Godmod injuries to my players: N
Hand out yellow cards to my players: Y
Hand out red cards to my players: Y
Godmod other events: Maybe, ask first depending on what you have in mind

Additionally, please don't RP my athletes or supporters being responsible for violence, cheating, or doping; and, if you're using unphotoshopped photo pictures, don't say they're pictures of my athletes or supporters.

National Rugby Union Squad of The Colony of Port Arthur
"The Red Pandas
"


Brief Overview of Port Arthur

The Colony of Port Arthur is a legal overseas territory of The Republic of Port Ember, situated on the Liaodong Peninsula of China. The Colony of Port Arthur is classified as a Colony, City State and a major Seaport City.

The Colony is unique in terms of its history, situation and governance style - in such a manner that it has become a leading topic of study and debate in academic and political circles. One of the many factors which makes it unique is the fact that the Colony can be considered a "New Land", as The Republic of Port Ember acquired the territory when there were no populace residing in the area - removing the common hatred towards the colonisers which normally festers in a modern colony. Also, another major unique factor is the fact that although the Republic of Port Ember is the technical owners of the Colony, it is governed under a shared governance between The Republic of Port Ember; The Armed Republic of The Chuck and The Free Lands of The Selkie.

The Colony is bordered with China to its north by land; and across the Shandong Peninsula to the southwest across the Bohai Strait and Korea lies across the Yellow Sea to the east.

Team History:

Due to the fact that the Colony was established from the ashes of a destroyed area in 2018, it was repopulated by citizens of Port Ember; The Chuck and The Selkie, as such, the nation had no organised sports of any form since the nation's rebirth.

The Governor of Port Arthur realised that although the main focus of all its citizens are focused upon the rebuilding of the nation, he realised that the establishment of regulated sports would be vital in establishing unity between the three different national groupings - and to establish a unified and unique national culture and identity - instead of the citizenry merely identifying themselves from where they have hailed originally.

It was to this end that the Port Arthur Rugby Union was established, and established a national team which would partake within the upcoming Rugby Union World Cup. The Union realised that the team has zero chances of achieving any meaningful objectives within the sport at this early stage, yet it was a start. And the beginning is always the best place to start.

Due to the fact that no professional club has existed up to this moment, the Union recruited players for the team from any person who seemed fit, willing and displayed an understanding of the game. Garry Keeves, the coach who had established the Rugby Union Youth Program in Port Ember, took up the reins for this hopeless project.

The team is affectionately known as "The Red Pandas", by their fans and the media - in reference to the team's logo, which itself is based on the nation's national animal.

Please note that both the logo and the kit was designed by the amazingly talented - saint of a man - Lisander




Fans

Due to the fact that this will be the first showing of the national team as an organised, united and (un?)professional team, it has not yet managed to build a large base of dedicated fans. The fans coming out however is diverse, hailing from three ethnic groups, alongside their various cultures and religions.

Postby Quintessence of Dust » Thu Nov 12, 2020 8:14 am

Nomenclature: Our country is called Quintessence of Dust, commonly shorted to QoD or Quod (but never Dust). Our people are called Quodites or, rarely, Quintessentials (but never Dusties). Our team is called the All Greys.

Kit: Take a wild guess.

Seriously, it’s all grey.

History: Quintessence of Dust have a proud rugby history which includes being former Rugby World Challenge Cup (international club competition) and Six Nations (international invitational) winners, World Cup runners-up, and World Cup and Six Nations hosts. However, we have been absent from the international rugby scene for over 120 years. All previous players can reasonably be expected to have passed away or be living in retirement communities on Mars (advances in 22nd century medical science have extended Quodite lives into the 150+ range, but have done nothing to cure the wear and tear of contact sport).

Domestic popularity: Rugby remains the pre-eminent national sport. It has always been the favoured game of the Anglo-French majority (now a minority); it was never taken up as much by the later waves of Fenno-scandian, Eastern and Central European, and Asian immigrants, despite attempts by sports authorities to encourage integration. Token stars from minority communities still tend to get a lot of focus amid attempts to popularise the game outside its northwest support base. Regardless of Quintessence of Dust’s international absence, the Premier League has been rumbling along happily enough for the past century with a largely unchanging roster of teams. A few players choose to play Ultimate Rugby in the Hannasean Federation in search of better pay, or join the Lunar Leagues in their dotage where light contact rules are in force.

Style of play: The All Greys have always lived up to their name with a conservative, defensive style of play with heavy emphasis on relentless forward play, dogged but unspectacular tackling, and tactical kicking from hand. The line-out team of the All Greys’ heyday was semi-legendary. Back play has generally been more limited, relying on crash centres, powerful wingers, and very little in the way of fluidity. A photograph of the backs successfully connecting three consecutive passes is framed in the National Hall of Fame and is considered a rarer artefact than buried treasure.

RP permissions: I have two strict permissions: no RPing my players being involved in violence (heavy tackling is fine but no touchline brawls); and no using photographs and saying they represent my players. Please respect these absolutely.

I have one additional preference, which is not a demand, but a request. Xkoranate scores can be broken down a number of different ways: a team scoring 15 points could have anything from 3T, 0C, to 5DG. My request is that if you assign my points, you do so in a way that minimises unconverted tries. I would rather my team score 5 penalties and 0 tries than 3 or even 1 unconverted try. Additionally, please limit drop goals, my team will be very conservative on this front and really only drop if it’s an 80th minute, 3 point-difference situation.

Given the above rather stiff permission, I will compensate with laxity on all other fronts. You may choose my scorers and even my lineup, assign yellow and red cards, RP injuries, and generally go nuts. Just leave my poor kicking stats alone!

Roster: Default starting XV is listed, with reserves. Some chopping and changing is to be expected, and some positional flexibility permitted (nothing crazy, but obviously the reserve openside can cover No. 8,a reserve lock play blindside, or the backs switch around).

Loosehead prop: Yoshirou Sugiyama (Highmark Zzubs)
Kyo Kamiya (Albersau), Jónatan Ingólfsson (New Cleethorpes Deathshriek), Axel Beauchêne (Tourseilles)
Hooker: Jean-Luc Bellamy (Tourseilles)
Tony Stack (Toonmar), Alexey Shvets (Combined Veterans)
Tighthead prop: Matthew Bishop (Bumpy Biscuits)
Conall Daugherty (Highmark City Irish), Robert Sherman (Central)
Locks: Johnny Wortham (New Cleethorpes Deathshriek), Chun Zhu (New Cleethorpes Deathshriek)
Jóhann Sigurðsson (Central), Alfred Chevalier (Combined Veterans
Blindside flanker: Santiago Echeverría (Toonmar)
Openside flanker: Simon Feldt (Ballat)
Aaron Ellery (Toonmar)
No. 8: Markus Rosenfeld (Combined Veterans)
Kaleb Jerome (Albersau)
Scrum-half: Jeff London (Highmark Zzubs)
Tristan Guillaume (Ballat)
Stand-off: Nat Lennon (Highmark City Irish)
Ben Dexter (Highmark Zzubs)
Centres: Kaoru Koizumi (New Cleethorpes Deathshriek), Finn McNee (Highmark City Irish)
Bob Snell (Nowy Orpington Cellists), Hrafn Brynjarsson (Priassa)
Wings: Dusty Cockburn (Combined Veterans), Jules St. Martin (Combined Veterans)
Yasha Orlov (Nowy Orpington Cellists), Sam Fox (Bumpy Biscuits), Jón Pétur Kristbjörnsson (Toonmar)
Fullback: Ryuuji Yamada (Priassa)

Note that in Quodite numbering systems, the inside centre wears 13 and outside 12.

Darmeni Rugby Union
Image

Style Modifier: -5
Tactics: The Darmeni game puts an emphasis on territorial advantage, thereby making the team's kicking game its most important asset. Darmeni teams will go for three points at any chance they get; receiving the resulting kick-off following the score will give them an advantage in possession as well. Scoring actual tries is very much an afterthought.

    Front row

    This is probably going to be the Hamsters’ weakness, and potentially a fatal one. De-emphasizing scrums in Ultimate Rugby to speed up games and produce more open, attacking football has led to a drop-off in technical skills that could be exposed under the more austere eye of international officiation. It doesn’t help that players from seven different franchises have been selected – the only teammates are Orcas pair Scott Hopkins and Cooper Hewson. But with Hunter Bennett named vice-captain, he’s probable to start at tighthead, with Zeke Francis at loosehead. Both are taller than average for the position. Sam Connor will probably win the selection battle for hooker based on his superior ball skills, but Kian Burke is unquestionably a better line-out thrower, so selection could depend on how that part of the game works out for the Hamsters.

    Second row

    Nate Hill is an obvious choice to start at right lock after his superb season with the Jaguars. Kaiden Porter will probably get the jump for the other position, jump being the key word. At 6’10” there’ll be few capable of challenging his line-out game, but his skills in open play and at the breakdown aren’t as strong as Ross’s. Jacob Harvey is a pretty exciting, but pretty raw, young talent who might spend a lot of time riding the bench.

    Back row

    It’s a perplexing decision to bring a 31-man squad that doesn’t include a single specialist blindside flanker. It’s not a completely stupid one, though: positional specificity among loose forwards is pretty old-fashioned, and Joe Hunter and Nathan Horne are clearly the best two flankers in the Federation. The logic seems to be that it’s better to have Horne on the field, slightly out of position. Eric Williamson is too limited a player – he plays his club rugby at lock, even if he was listed as a flanker in the squad selection. At 8 the selection logic seems straightforward, with Perry an automatic choice, and Moore able to fill in any back row role off the bench.

    Half-backs

    Every Hamsters side seems to need a selection controversy in the half-backs. This time the scrum-half choices are straightforward: Braylen Vargas will start and Tommy Rhodes come off the bench. This suits their style of play: Vargas a methodical, relentless distributor, sometimes criticized as a little lacking in invention but never likely to miss a tackle; Rhodes a sparkplug who can provide late impetus with some creative box-kicking but who’s a less capable game manager over 80 minutes. He’ll have few complaints about sitting as replacement. No, the real questions come at 10. What adds spice is that Tom Pickett and Jayson Parker play for the same Ultimate Rugby club – for the moment. Parker was a utility back riding the bench when he was vaulted into prominence with the Sevens team. His touchline conversion to win the gold medal was voted Best Olympic Moment by Hannasean fans, and suddenly Icelandic were looking for a way to get him more playing time, not entirely to the pleasure of the hitherto reliable Pickett. A similar problem now confronts the national team. In Pickett’s favor: he’s a much more reliable goal-kicker and a proven, capable 10. In Parker’s favor: his tricks and feints, and brutal tackling. There’s some talk of trying to get them both in the team, with Parker at 12. Of course, the two of them playing for a place for club and country could work to the Hamsters’ advantage, if it spurs them on to greatness – or lead to acrimony on and off the pitch. As for Russell – uh, who is this guy?

    Backs

    In keeping with the generally fluid shape of Ultimate Rugby back lines, there’s a lot of utility backs jostling for position here, most capable of filling wing, centre or fullback alike (and plenty with experience at half, for their clubs, too, as if more uncertainty weren’t needed there!). The Pharoahs’ centre pairing of Matteo Walsh, a straight-up crash centre, and Ben Campbell, who’s played everywhere but brings reliable tackling and not a little flair at 13, seems a good bet to start. On the wing the speedy Stevens and Ball will probably be picked ahead of Price, but if he can bring the storming form he’s shown this season after converting from League it’ll be difficult to keep him out of the team. Wright is a lock at full-back and might slot a long penalty or two.

    Overall

    No one really knows how the Hamsters will go. Showings in League and Sevens haven’t really been representative of a country with a strong Union preference. But Ultimate Rugby has little interaction with the wider world of rugby, and there’s questions about how players will adapt to international rules and stricter officiation. The team could play well if they can dominate the breakdown, set up their fast wingers, and land their kicks. They could struggle if the game gets bogged down in technical scrums and slows down their back lines. Either way, there’ll be many Federation citizens watching rapt from the stands, and many more back home watching on TV.
