So the Gallagher Premiership season is underway, but you didn't get your fantasy rugby team set up for the first round? Don't worry!

It's never too late to get involved, and at this early stage of the season there is plenty still to play for. Why not invite your friends and put together a private league, you will all start from the same place. 

There is also the Rugby Magazine Cup to aim for, which kicks off in round 12; last year's winner didn't start until a few weeks into the season.

If you are starting a little late, one of the key focuses in choosing your players is form. With access to how players are doing after the opening round of the competition, you can build a squad of players that are on form and in budget.

Stand out performers in the opening round of the competition were Will Stuart (£135k), Danny Care (£305k), Jamie George (£333k), Dan Robson (£268k) and Sam Simmonds (£283k).

Equally, you are in a great position to pick out the great value to performance options such as Sam Skinner (£160k) or Sam Lewis (£180k), who both put in some superb performances over the weekend, and through last season.

Given that price rises are now in full flow too, it's important to sign up sooner rather than later. While some of the biggest risers have only gone up by around 4%, their is still plenty of room for growth, and you don't want to miss out on some of the better players because you held off signing up.
