There are four South Africans in this week's Dream Team, based on the Fantasy League points they earned last weekend.
The benefit of home advantage in the knockouts is clear to see in this week's Dream Team. Just one Highlander and three Chiefs made it into the starting XV, while 11 players feature from sides that played at home.
The captain of choice was Bismarck du Plessis, leading the way with a try and an assist. The top kicker also came from the Sharks, with Frans Steyn slotting two conversions and four penalties.
The Brumbies were the top-scoring team and featured three players with a try and an assist: Jarrad Butler, Robbie Coleman and Jesse Mogg.
The Sharks and Brumbies will be on the road this weekend where they will need to replicate their performances if they are to overcome the home advantage which now lies with the Crusaders and Waratahs.
