Here’s Week 2’s line-up for FeastJuice, picked fresh, this is a team you could field with a full squad of 28:
DISCLAIMER: This is slightly different to the team posted on the Fantasy Rugby TV FB page, simply because in the game I’m limited to 5 players from one team, and obviously have to stick to the salary cap, rather than it just being my best picks.
However, similar principles – load up on Chiefs, and I fancy the Hurricanes to get into gear, and simply can’t turn away from the Crusaders.
Wildcard’s ideal team for week 3, I think the Chiefs at home to Sunwolves should be a high scoring fixture.
Little starting for the Sunwolves should also give him a big score. I’m sticking with Mo’aunga at 10 after his 2 tries last week.

One piece of additional advice this week. Everyone is getting killed with injuries and rotations. Be very selective over your transfers and don’t go taking a 20 point hit for no reason. If your squad is solid, but you’re just stuffed through the combo of Waratah’s not playing and rested players, then it is perfectly ok to play one or two players on the bench who get 0 points. For it to be worth your while trying to fill your bench the player you bring in will need to get 40 points, which is very hard to do.
Obviously if you’ve got squad issues due to injuries, then maybe look to take the hit, and likewise if you can’t get a 15 out, then obviously that is the priority. But otherwise try to resist being a tinkerman and keep those 20 points in your pocket.
