Have a try at Pru&#39s fantasy rugby league

Prudential is inviting IFAs to compete in its Fantasy Six Nations Rugby League for a chance to win a holiday in Mauritius or a trip to the Monaco Grand Prix.

IFAs can visit the Pru&#39s website to select and monitor their team&#39s progress through this year&#39s championship. There is a lucky-dip facility for those who find it too tricky to chose their ideal line-up.

There is also the option to set up a private league to compete against colleagues or rival offices.

The team of the week will appear on the site and additional prizes and wooden spoons will be awarded for performance.

The Six Nations tournament will run from February 15 to March 30.

E-Platforms manager Stuart Pleace says: “Advisers must want to use the site and the incentive to do so will now be improved. Fun and functionality significantly improve use of the site.”
