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.

Faf stood tall for Springboks
Faf de Klerk's heroics in Port Elizabeth prevented the Springboks from suffering a home series loss to Ireland, writes MARK KEOHANE in Business Day.
Boks must share kicking load
The Springboks’ ability to find grass with their attacking kicks will hinge on their communication as much as their decision-making and execution, writes JON CARDINELLI.
