You can still win big with ESPN Fantasy Rugby...even if you missed the first week

The opening weekend of the Six Nations has come and gone...and you forgot to sign up to ESPN's free Fantasy Rugby game! Don't worry, it happens!

Fortunately, there's still plenty of time sign up, prove your managerial smarts and be in with the chance of winning some serious prizes.

Even if you missed the first week, there are still four more opportunities to top the weekly leaderboard and get your hands on a pair on Beats Solo 3 Wireless Headphones.

In order to get in on the fun, you must first log in to your ESPN account. If you don't already have one, no problem -- you can create one for free quickly and easily by following the on-screen instructions.

There are a few basic selection rules to follow:

Each team must be made up of three front-row forwards, a pair of second rowers, and three in the back row; a scrum-half, a fly-half, two centres and three outside backs.

Remember, you are limited to a maximum of four players from each nation, so make those selections wisely!

You'll need to pick a designated kicker, too, which is vital for getting those points for successful penalties and conversions. Selecting Morgan Parra, Johnny Sexton, and Leigh Halfpenny (when he's fit again) isn't going to get you extra points, unless you choose one of them as your penalty taker.

Don't worry for now if you're torn between Sexton or Finn Russell at fly-half, or can't quite make up your mind whether George North and Jonny May would make a better wing pair than, say, Keith Earls and Yoann Huget. Throughout the tournament you will have three free transfers between each round if a player isn't living up to expectations, and you'll get an alert if a member of your team isn't selected for a match.

So what are you waiting for? There's still plenty of time to sign up and show your mates just who has the shrewdest rugby brain in town... not to mention, the world.
