Five must-haves for Round 8

The Fantasy Rugby Scout on who you should have in your Super Rugby team this weekend.

There were no tries for Cooper against the Stormers last weekend but he still managed to score 17 points. The Reds host the Force on Saturday and there should be points a plenty for him, both from the boot and the tryline.

With our favourite scrummie Nic White facing a tough game against the Blues, our second choice steps in. He has two tries and four assists so far and after downing the Crusaders last week, the Canes are looking good for points.

Messam is back to his best, consistently scoring fantasy points in the loose forward position with two tries and two assists. A potentially tricky game in Bloem shouldn't stop Messam getting you some valuable away win points at least.

Coleman once again makes the must-have centre position. Three tries in two weeks highlights his current form, but it's five tries in total from five full appearances that's made him one of top-scoring fantasy players. Interestingly just 16% of fantasy managers have selected him so far.

Leiua scored the try of the week last weekend to take his tally to two tries and two assists. The Hurricanes backline is starting to click and Leiua seems as good a bet as any to reap the rewards.
