It was the return of sport in Australia with the relaunch of the NRL competition. Draftstars certainly came to relaunch by providing the most money ever in the history of the site for the NRL. Starved fantasy players certainly took the contests like ducks to water and were certainly entertained by the cardboard cut-outs, the fake crowd noise and some games played on grass.


Let’s recap the winners over the weekend!


Thursday NRL

The competition relaunched with a bang with the Eels and Broncos on Thursday Night and Draftstars put up its largest NRL regular season prize pool in the history of the site.


DFR Members jbarrett16 and schmackie chopped the 1st prize but for jbarrett16 he had the winning side twice for a $7,000 collect! Sources close to DFR tell us that jbarrett’s significant other has already an eye on those winnings! In fact the top 10 was taken up by all DFR members!


Friday NRL

A 2-game slate greeted fantasy players on Friday and Draftstars put up a $20,000 contest for the featured match between the Roosters and Rabbitohs. James Tedesco was everywhere in this one and it was beneficial for Long who took out the $2,285 1st prize. Wishy and lostmypass filled out the minor placings.


Saturday NRL

Saturday brought a 3-game slate in a true test of fantasy play after big favourites St. George were shutout by the Warriors and the Raiders defeated the Storm in Melbourne for the third time in a row! Celebrations kicked off for Marshall1994 who rose to the top of the leaderboard late with Cameron Munster taking him to a $2,184 collect.



Sunday NRL

Finally on Sunday, Draftstars posted a $10,000 2-game slate which was duly eaten up and increased to $14,000 at kick-off. It was a crazy Panthers v Knights game that went to extra time, thus some huge fantasy scoring from both teams. It was DFR member DabCityLads who had a 8 man stack with Turbo Tom Trbojevic to take out the first prize with an epic 600+ fantasy point score.


In other news, DFS Australian GOAT jayk123 was on a heater at DraftKings in the past week winning multiple high stakes contests in a variety of sports.  




Congrats to all winners over the weekend and a reminder that fantasy Horse Racing continues everyday on Draftstars and action on DraftKings. Look out for news and previews throughout this week!
