Five must-haves for Round 17
- 25 Jun 2014
The Fantasy Rugby Scout on who you should have in your Super Rugby team this weekend.
Fekitoa has been having one hell of a season so far and earning his first start for the All Blacks last weekend will only add to his confidence.
Folau continued his try-scoring ways against France, scoring three tries in three games for the Wallabies. This week the Brumbies will make for easy pickings for the in-form fullback.
Foley maintained his Super Rugby form for the Wallabies and he remains the top fantasy kicking option.
A hat-trick against England last weekend sees Savea back to his old form and makes him an absolute must have.
Both Aaron and Ben Smith were on top form for the All Blacks, but with a brace of tries last weekend and huge assist potential, Aaron gets the nod for this week.

Pollard must build on super start
A commanding showing in the second half of the Vodacom Super Rugby tournament should see Handré Pollard installed as the Springboks’ No 1 flyhalf, writes JON CARDINELLI.
Hailing a hero
In coming back from a life-threatening illness Schalk Burger has underlined his status as a national treasure, writes RYAN VREDE.
SA teams can offer more
The inability of South African franchises to play complete rugby is a coaching issue, writes MARK KEOHANE in Business Day.
