@Sportsdeck_AU Fantasy Super Rugby #SuperRugbyScout Week 7 Picks


Below are my picks for week 7: Tupou - Reds at home, season pick, move on.I want to pick Dane Coles here, but the reality is he's $240k and you don't want to spend that on a hooker. So whilst if you have the luxury take Coles, Creevy at home should be solid, and also … Continue reading @Sportsdeck_AU Fantasy Super Rugby #SuperRugbyScout Week 7 Picks

@Sportsdeck_AU Fantasy Super Rugby #SuperRugbyScout Week 5 Picks


Right, so this is the team of which players aren't going to be Hurricanes this week: Kitshoff - the easy picks this year are Kitshoff, Tupou and Alaalatoa at prop, who will probably be top 3.

Fantasy Super Rugby Week 2 Roundup @Sportsdeck_AU


So week 2 is in the books. Pretty low scoring round with only a handful of managers scoring more than 500, and most under the 400 mark. Still, there were some stand out performances and takeaways: Playing the match-ups is as risky as ever - you can pick the teams - Jags / Crusaders / … Continue reading Fantasy Super Rugby Week 2 Roundup @Sportsdeck_AU

Top Scorer of the Week - Hatrick Hero Fainga'a 65 points If there's one thing that's been constant this year (apart from the challenge of player rotation and pre world cup rests) it's been the inconsistency of results.

I got bored writing this several weeks ago, but another week and byes and rests are screwing with fantasy managers again.

What a week. Sunwolves with their first away win, and the SA conference producing all sorts of weird results. Plus the anticipated resting of the big name all blacks with some studs only getting 50 or less minutes. Not a bad outing for our picks last week, DMck a little disappointing, but still a safe … Continue reading Fantasy Super Rugby Week 3: Don’t Touch, Pause, Engage.

Another great week of Super Rugby, with fantasy veteran Folau coming through for many, and his Waratah team mates raining points against the Sunwolves. However, the usual smattering of eggs were laid by big fantasy names, most significantly the Ioane brothers. Such is a Fantasy Managers life. It would be remiss of us to point … Continue reading Fantasy Super Rugby Week 2: Don’t Touch, Pause, Engage.

So week 1 is in the books and we were treated to some great games.

So Wildcard was being a fanny about showing his whole squad, clearly indicating a lack of confidence. I have no such problem. Here it is: Currently the squad is 29 players.

Week 2 Dream Team. (This is a team for this week only) Captaining Havili not Korobeite this week, just couldn't change it on Sportsdeck before the post as it was locked in.
