Smith still top Fantasy League pick
- 28 Aug 2013
All Blacks wing Ben Smith was the top-scoring Fantasy League player in round two of the Castle Rugby Championship.
Smith, who scored a hat-trick against the Wallabies in Sydney to earn the most points in round one, grabbed another two this past weekend. If you were clever enough to make him captain, you’d have scored double points and earned 54 for your team.
Morné Steyn remains the banker as your kicker. He earned 29 points this weekend, while Bjorn Basson’s try made him the pick of the other backline players.
Despite losing to the Boks, there are four Pumas in this week’s Dream Team compared to just one Wallaby.
The tournament resumes next Saturday with the All Blacks hosting Argentina in Hamilton and the Boks travelling to Brisbane to face the Wallabies.
