Fantasy Rugby Scout Picks #Waratahs

The Tahs have finished first and second in their last two seasons.  The Tahs were always consistently above average but under Cheika’s whip they worked like slaves on the field leading to Fantasy gold. It remains to be seen whether new head coach Daryl Gibson will have the same success. Even if the team doesn’t […]

Fantasy Rugby Scout Picks #Sunwolves

Ladies and gentlemen I introduce you to this year’s wooden-spooners. The Kings will be pleased to welcome the men from Tokyo. Aside from their lack of Super Rugby experience the Sunwolves are going to have to contend with a three match tour of South Africa and then travel back and forth from down under to the […]

Fantasy Rugby Scout Picks #Stormers

The Stormers were the best of a horrid bunch of Saffas last season. Made the playoffs despite having less points then the seventh placed team. The men from Cape Town have a good draw this season avoiding the traditionally strong Kiwi sides so expect some good scores. Eben Etzebeth – Easily one of the most destructive […]

Fantasy Rugby Scout Picks #Sharks

The Sharks were the underachievers of 2015. After finishing third in 2014 they were one of the favourites but we dismal and individually and as a team, with the exception of Pat Lambie. As a consequence their prices in Fox Fantasy make them an attractive investment if the Sharks find form. Sbu Sithole – Equally […]

Fantasy Rugby Scout Picks #Reds

The Reds won the competition in 2011 and have been on the decline ever since. Last season they finished third to last as they continue to scratch their heads in the absence of Will Genia and James Horwill. Who’s left? Samu Kerevi – Will do in one phase what other players take a game to […]

Fantasy Rugby Scout Pre-Season Picks #Rebels

The Rebels had their best season finishing tenth last year. Statistics show they won just nine out of their first 43 Super Rugby games for a dismal 21% win record. However they won 14 of their last 37 for a more respectable 38% win record. Last year they won 44% of their games. The Rebellion hasn’t quite happened yet […]

Fantasy Rugby Scout Pre-Season Picks #Kings

The Kings are back to get a hiding. Let’s look at the best of the bunch. Steven Sykes – Sykes played 69 Super Rugby games with the Sharks, 15 for the Kings, then 14 for the Cheetahs and now he’s back at the worst team in the competition. Will be leading from the front and racking up […]

Fantasy Rugby Scout Pre-Season Picks #Jaguares

If it looks like a Puma and almost sounds like a Puma we’ll call it a Jaguar. The Jaguares side this weekend includes thirteen pumas internationals (Los Pumas) so what we have here ladies and gentleman, mostly gentleman, is basically just a watered down Argentina. Now that that’s settled let’s had out some more medals. Augustin Creevy – […]

Fantasy Rugby Scout Pre-Season Picks #Hurricanes

The Hurricanes were the team to beat last season. Especially if you were a Highlander. Deadly on attack, strong in the forwards. They are the team to beat again even without the legendary Conrad Smith, what a great player. Plenty of gold but we can only pick four. Julian Savea – King of the broken tackle. […]
