Top Scorer this week – Laumape 64 points.
- SHANNON FRIZELL makes the dream team yet again. This guy is only listed as a flanker but is the top scorer in the game at the moment and is only $187, I’m strongly considering bringing him in as hes a massive ball carrier for the Highlanders.
- DANE COLES is BACK. I was worried about him not being as rapid as he used to be and maybe losing some of those extra skills he possesses. The 2 tries were excellent especially the 2nd one after taking that sublime offload from TJ and scoring like a winger… Boy was i wrong, I think he’ll pip Marx this year, just saying…
- The Crusaders are just so organised and seem to find some excellent talent year after year that just slot into their impressive way of playing. Scott Robertson and his team are 2nd to none.
- A-Oooooo!!! THE SUNWOLVES beating THE CHIEFS in NEW ZEALAND was the most entertaining match of the weekend in my opinion. I love their attacking rugby. And still quite a few of their big names are still missing, I wont miss a game of their’s this season A-Oooooo!!! Yamashita, Helu and van der Heever are now on my watchlist.
- The only really good thing about the Chiefs this past weekend was Nankivell who is owned by a massive 0% of people in this game… McKensie to be fair did pretty well with 37 points. Its going to be a long and hard season for The Chiefs at this rate.
- Laumape is a god. Get him in if you don’t have him already.
- Always and I mean always check the starting line-ups. https://www.sport24.co.za/Rugby/SuperRugby/super-rugby-weekend-teams-20180116-2
- JOSH IOANE (Highlanders) moving to full back and not taking all the kicks is not great to see. The Highlanders can be awesome and average at times. I wouldn’t sell him at this stage but I’d play him off the bench I reckon.
- The Jags were impressive against yet again even though the Blues fought back. Dare i say The Blues are getting better this year, as this is pretty much how I feel about about the Blues every year.
- The Bulls beating the Lions away from home was a big statement. I think its fair to say the Bulls will be the best team in SA this year.
