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. […]

Fantasy Rugby Scout Pre-Season Picks #Highlanders

  Last year was the Hurricanes season. But the final belonged to the Highlanders. The back-lines coming out of Otago are always deadly but they had forwards in 2015 who could hold their own, sort of. Still can’t believe they won. Let’s have a look at the medalists.   Waisake Naholo – Nobody saw him […]

Fantasy Rugby Scout Pre-Season Picks #Crusaders

The most successful team of all time in Super Rugby have had a tough time of it in recent years. They haven’t won since 2008 and last year failed to make the playoffs for the first time since their freakishly bad season in 2001. Is there is still gold in them hills? Nemani Nadolo – […]

Fantasy Rugby Scout Pre-Season Picks – Cheetahs

The Cheetahs are plundered by the bigger unions every season. However, there’s always some gold left behind in Bloem to give the farmers hope that the glory year of 2013 might return. Boom Prinsloo – Blows a bit hot and cold, but has the potential to make it rain. Last season the Cheetahs captain scored eight tries […]

Our Super Rugby picks march on with the Bulls who have nine Boks in their side for the opening match this weekend. The men from Pretoria were bang average last season and are without injured Handre Pollard.

Fantasy Rugby Scout Pre-Season Picks – Brumbies

We continue with our pre-season Super Rugby picks moving on to the Brumbies who lost last season to the Hurricanes in the semi-finals.  David Pocock – Injury and controversy prone, but on his day arguably the most valuable player in the tournament. Designated rolling maul try scorer. The Zimbabwean born loosie has scored 16 Super Rugby […]
