Dream Team (Round 9)

There are five South Africans in this week's Dream Team, based on the Fantasy League points they earned in round nine.

They are Sharks fullback Lwazi Mvovo (30 points), Bulls scrumhalf Piet van Zyl (18), Cheetahs lock Teboho Mohoje (20), Bulls prop Marcel van der Merwe (20) and Cheetahs hooker Adriaan Strauss (12).

This week's Dream Team is one of the highest-scoring ever thanks to two hat-tricks over the weekend. The first was by the Nick 'The Honey Badger' Cummins, who helped the Force to their fifth consecutive win this season. The second was scored by big Fijian winger Nemani Nadolo for the Crusaders against the Cheetahs.

Nadolo's 56 points gave him the captaincy nod with team-mate Colin Slade being given the kicking duties. Slade kicked four penalties, four conversions and scored a try to earn an impressive 52 points.

Total points: 494
Team value: $112.5 million
