Five must-haves for Round 14
- 15 May 2014
The Fantasy Rugby Scout on who you should have in your Super Rugby team this weekend.
The Cheetahs' top-scoring player so far this season, and a loose forward, and only $7-million! What a steal!
DAMIAN DE ALLENDE
The Stormers return to Newlands and will be hoping to pick up a win against the Force. De Allende is playing himself into contention for a Springbok spot at the moment, so why isn't he in your team?
The massive winger has scored six tries in only seven appearances for the Crusaders. Between him and Johnny McNicholl the Crusaders backline is beginning to light up.
Back from a bye last week, the Waratahs welcome the Lions to Sydney. They'll be sure not to underestimate the Lions like the Highlanders did last week, and Folau will be hoping to recapture some of his early-season try-scoring form.
If you're in the market for a flyhalf look no further. He may even give points-machine Beauden Barrett a run for his money this week.
