TOP SCORER – Vince Aso the top point scorer, who would have thought?
- Ben Smith(HIGH) – injured so early in the match.
- Cory Jane(HUR) – injured in the warm-up, 0 points, Aso was then moved to the wing.
POOREST PERFORMER – IZZY(TAHS) – 3 points…
What has round 1 taught us:
- McKensie(CHIEFS) was not a banker.
- Beauden Barrett(HUR) and Dane Coles(HUR) not starting was a great opportunity to pick Ricky Ricciteli and Otere Black instead. This would have made you a great cash return of 106K.
- Izzy only made 3 points, I know, right? 3 freakin points and lost 100K, WHAT THE £$%^&*(!!!!
- The loss of Pisi has really taken its toll on The Sunwolves… I honestly can’t decide who will be worse off between them and The Kings.One thing is for sure they are going to struggle.
- The Lions tour is going to involve resting a lot of The All Blacks during the season. Picking them is dangerous but if they start, not picking them is even more dangerous.
- Always and I mean always check the starting line-ups. http://www.sport24.co.za/Rugby/SuperRugby/super-rugby-weekend-teams-20160222 The introduction of a Thursday game did fantasy rugby players no favours as most the teams are announced on Thursdays.
- Will Skelton can now play for 70 minutes after his stint in the Northern Hemisphere and is looking as lean as a man mountain can be.
- The Top scoring centres scored more points than the OBKs.
- Lastly losing Schalk Burger was huge but The Stormers still have a great mixture of experience and new talent. Some of the players really stood up to the Bulls, none more so that Siya Kolisi. Take a bow!
