The Dream Team Of Week 7 ( Points):
- Kitshoff scoring 33 points
- Alaalatoa scoring 32 points
- A. Strauss scoring 67 points
- S. Whitelock scoring 57 points
- P. Tuipulotu scoring 53 points
- J. du Preez scoring 87 points
- A. Ioane scoring 75 points
- T. Mtembu scoring 52 points
- TJ scoring 28 points
- R. du Preez 70 points
- G. Moala 76 with points
- M. Collins scoring 68 points
- B. Lam with 101 points(c)
- D. McKensie 81 scoring points
- T. Naiyaravoro scoring 67 points
TOP SCORER – B. Lam the top point scorer of Week 7 with 4 tries.
- Folau 12 points, was injured after 1 run that made 12 points, he’s been in great form, so a lot of managers lost out here.
- POOREST PERFORMER – Tim Perry for the 2nd week in a row with an even worse –11 points.
What has round 7 taught us:
- Let’s start with Ben Lam, 4 tries and over 100 points. I’m pretty sure everyone will have him next week… Feast had him on the bench and couldn’t bring him in, which must have burnt badly.
- Damien McKensie had another great week at 10, this was against the Highlanders. I think it would have been harder for him had Sopoanga not been injured early on.
- T. Naiyaravoro was excellent and with Folau getting injured early became the go to winger and he was pretty impressive, crushing the Brumbies last line of defense.
- The 2 du Preez brothers had their best game of the season, I had Robert on my bench and couldn’t sub him in with my transfers so that was painful to watch. At least he made my team 50K. Jean-Luc was even more ridiculous scoring a massive 87 with 15 tackles, 11 runs, 1 try and 1 try assist and a loads of tackle busts. I hope the selectors saw that performance.
- The Ioane brothers both put in a strong performance although the blues hardly pass to Rieko, which I think is insane as he is arguably the best winger in world Rugby. Akira is a 1 man army and I’m so glad I brought him in last week. Moala and Collins were clearly the centres(in the fantasy game) to go for last week.
- Always and I mean always check the starting line-ups. https://www.sport24.co.za/Rugby/SuperRugby/super-rugby-weekend-teams-20180116-2
- Strauss scoring a hatrick was just funny, if you had him in your team, you got lucky!
- Naholo also needs to be mentioned as he scored 63 points and is looking sharper every week, he’s on a bye this week though.
- Last weekend a 7 locks scored over 40 points which is something to consider.
