Dream Team (Round 10)
- 22 Apr 2014
There are three South Africans in this week's Dream Team, based on the Fantasy League points they earned in round 10.
They are Stormers centre Damian de Allende and flank Nizaam Carr, and Sharks flank Jean Deysel. Carr is our captain, having scored a try and played well against the Lions, while our vice-captain is All Blacks winger Julian Savea, who had the same points total as Carr but is considerably more pricey.
With just 14 tries scored over the weekend, this Dream Team scored just 342 points for the round, well below the average of 436.
The opening match saw five tries scored by the Hurricanes, who dominate our Dream Team. The kicking duties go to Beauden Barrett who garnered three assists and 14 points with the boot to notch up 44 points.
Total points: 342
Team value: $131 million
