Fantasy Super Rugby Week 3: Dream Team, Top Scorer, Unluckiest Pick, Poorest Pick and what did we learn?



TOP SCORER – Torsten van Jaarsveld (CHEE) 78 Points

UNLUCKY PICKS – Israel Dagg, Naholo, Milner Skudder – all injured early in the first half, a guy tweeted us who had all 3 playing, Ouch! Someone give that guy a Wildcard!

POOREST PERFORMER – Takuma Asahara (SUN) at -8, not sure many had him though.

What has round 3 taught us:

  1. No-one is safe from injury, bringing in players for an easy fixture a week in advance is too risky, I almost binned Curwin Bosch for Dagg, phew!!!
  2. Nehe Milner-Skudder(HURR) is going to be out for a bit meaning Jordie Barrett(HURR) should be playing at fullback.
  3. Dane Coles(HURR) is not the only Hooker making points, Torsten scored more than double his total..
  4. Izzy scored 76 points with 2 tries, it looks like he is finding his rhythm again…
  5. The Sunwolves gave the Cheetahs a great match and put together some amazing phases of play, maybe they’ll win a fixture at home this season after all.
  6. The Jaguares beating the Lions will give them confidence although the Lions did field a weaker starting line-up.
  7. SP Marais(STOR) had a solid performance in round 3 and was unlucky not to score a try..
  8. Senatla(STOR) looks like he can’t even get onto the bench in a game against the Kings… He’s probably wishing he kept a foot in the 7’s game.
  9. Curwin Bosch(SHARKS) took over at 10 for the Sharks as if he’d been playing super rugby for years. I spoke about this guy at the beginning of the seaizzyvSharksson. It will be hard for the Sharks coach not to start him ahead of April this weekend after scoring a Massive 27 points. I can’t remember a time when Lambie scored 27 point, just saying…
  10. Other injuries include James Lowe(CHIEFS), Scott Fardy(BRUM) and Seta Tamanivalu(CRUS)
