TOP SCORER – Vince Aso the top point scorer, who would have thought?

UNLUCKY PICKS

  1. Ben Smith(HIGH) – injured so early in the match.
  2. 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:

  1. McKensie(CHIEFS) was not a banker.
  1. 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.
  1. Izzy only made 3 points, I know, right? 3 freakin points and lost 100K, WHAT THE £$%^&*(!!!!
  1. 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.
  1. 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.  
  1. 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.
  1. 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.
  1. The Top scoring centres scored more points than the OBKs.
  1. 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!
