NRL fans can win flights, accommodation and tickets to the inaugural NRL Auckland Nines competition just by pre-registering for next season's NRL Tipping or the new-and-improved NRL Fantasy games.


Pre-registration is now open for 2014's NRL Tipping and NRL Fantasy games, with tickets, flights and accommodation to the inaugural NRL Auckland Nines up for grabs for one lucky player who gets in quick.


For the last two seasons NRL Dream Team has been the number one fantasy rugby league game in Australia, with in excess of 260,000 fantasy teams being created across all our games in 2013.


Next year Dream Team is getting an upgrade and has been renamed 'NRL Fantasy'.


The game you know and love will still remain familiar, and you will still be able to compete against your mates for ultimate bragging rights not to mention major and weekly prizes.


The new platform will also deliver a better all-round experience for fantasy coaches, including a cleaner layout, more flexibility to set up and manage your leagues, an easier process for trading players and a brand new premium coach assistance product to help you along the fantasy journey.


Will Lachlan Coote become one of the best Fantasy fullbacks after switching to North Queensland, or has Johnathan Thurston earned a spot in your halves after a stunning World Cup campaign? Will you splash the cash on a reliable pack or a star-studded backline? Time to start planning your 2014 team now.

Meanwhile in other NRL Fantasy news...


After extended contract discussions and a very unhealthy off-season, resident NRL Fantasy guru the Lone Scout will also return in 2014. Lone Scout is already busy poring over the 2014 squad lists and potential player prices to try and get a jump start on the competition.


Rumour has it Lone Scout is planning to exclusively reveal the official 2014 player prices before the launch of NRL Fantasy in late January, so keep an eye on NRL.com for more information.
