Five must-haves for Round 3

The Fantasy Rugby Scout brings you this week's five must-haves for Super Rugby round three.


He was No 1 on our list last week and he came to the party in a serious fashion: a hat-trick of tries to bring home 52 points (104 for those who made him captain). Not surprisingly, his ownership has shot to 36% of managers holding him, up from the 25% last week, and while still an important choice, don't expect him to repeat last weekend's heroics against the Reds.


Scored a try against the Reds last weekend and now has the pleasure of facing the Force. We won't predict a hat-trick but it's not beyond the realms of possibility.


The reigning champions take on the Highlanders this weekend and with Cruden at No 10 and in good kicking form, he's a strong choice for your goal-kicker, especially with Pat Lambie getting the weekend off with the Sharks' bye.


Robbie Fruean is something of a fantasy gold mine, as he always seems to be the last guy holding the ball when it goes over the line. He has fully recovered from his heart surgery last year and the switch to the Chiefs has done him no harm either, scoring a try against his former employers, the Crusaders, last weekend. There should be more to come from Fruean this round.


The Brumbies will be looking to bag a bonus point this weekend in Perth and the man at the centre of the action will be Nic White. If he's not assisting the tries, he'll likely be scoring them.

Playing Fantasy League also puts you in line to stand a chance at winning Beats Solo HD headphones, which will be given away at the end of each month.
