Squad Management - Rugby League

Once you've opened your first packs, you’re ready to start building your squad!

There are three parts of the squad-building process for the GameDay Squad Aussie Rules platform:

  1. The Field - The Field is built from all your best players and consists of all the players that will be actively scoring for your team.

  2. The Bench - There are 5 bench positions for GameDay Squad Rugby League, these players DO contribute to your overall team score.

  3. Reserves - This is where you’ll find all your non-active players. You can have an unlimited amount of Reserve players.

There is no limit to player movement in GameDay Squad Rugby League in 2024. This means that you can bring as many players as you like from your Reserves onto The Field anytime outside of the players lockout.

In 2024, GameDay Squad will be introducing a rolling lockout. This means that players will only be locked out as their team's game starts. For example: If a user has selected a player playing on Thursday night, they will be locked out at the commencement of the game however, the user will be able to still change players playing on Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday, and so forth until the last game of the round. The rolling lockout will be active for the GameDay Squad Aussie Rules GameDay Squad Rugby League, GameDay Squad Women's Aussie Rules, GameDay Squad Australian Basketball and GameDay Squad World Cup Cricket codes.

It is important to note that if a user swaps a player after, in OR out of their active team the player who is swapped in or out will score ZERO points for the round. This is to stop people taking advantage of any lock out exploits and to keep the game as fair as possible for all users. This rule applies even if the auto lockout is not active at the time.

It is important to note that coaches must select a complete FULL squad to be eligible for prizes and for scores to count toward their Round/Seasonal scores/rankings. If a coach does not submit a full squad (all position slots completed) the coach will receive ZERO points for the round. As per the rules of competitions for the GameDay Squads Rugby League game, coaches are required to have fielded a complete Squad in order to be eligible for competitions and scoring. Coaches will score a 0 for any game within a round if they do not have a fully completed squad regardless of the squad's salary cap at the time of lockout.
