What we've learned from ASX Sports fantasy rugby so far
With six matches already played in this year’s Guinness Six Nations, $1000s have already been won in prizes in ASX Sports and plenty more will be up for grabs in the coming rounds.
The Championship has seen some of its biggest stars perform so far, and there have also been many dark horses that have helped those playing ASX Sports earn some bumper hauls.
Team of the Week
Top 5 performers in round two
England’s Jamie George topped the charts in round two in terms of dividends courtesy of his brace against Italy. His side’s strong scrummaging performance also allowed the hooker to move ahead of his teammate Marcus Smith.
- Jamie George (England- hooker) $75 divs
- Marcus Smith (England- fly-half) $66 divs
- Antoine Dupont (France- scrum-half) $48 divs
- Jamison Gibson-Park (Ireland- scrum-half) $41 divs
- Kyle Sinckler (England- tighthead prop) $40 divs
Who’s earned the most dividends so far?
There is a common theme amongst the top three combined scorers so far this Championship and that is that they have all played Italy, who clearly have the most accommodating defence- so much so that George actually finished with negative dividends after playing Scotland but clawed his way back against Italy. Therefore, choose wisely when picking players against the Azzurri, as there is potential for gigantic hauls with the right picks.
- Marcus Smith $101.2 divs
- Gabin Villiere $85 divs
- Jamie George $73.3 divs
Top 10 buys of round two
Only three players from the top ten performers also proved to be one of the top ten buys (Kyle Sinckler, George and Cyril Baille) i.e. the players that earn the most dividends per $.
With props finding themselves on the scoresheet a lot across round two and their cheap price to begin with, by and large, round two will be remembered as the round of the prop. N0.1s and No.3s took four of the top five places, with a hooker taking the other place.
- Kyle Sinckler (England- tighthead prop) $7.68 divs per $
- Pierre Schoeman (Scotland- loosehead prop) $3.29 divs per $
- Tomas Francis (Wales- tighthead prop) $3.09 divs per $
- Jamie George (England- hooker) $2.53 divs per $
- Zander Fagerson (Scotland- tighthead prop) $2.47 divs per $
- Cherif Traore (Italy- loosehead prop) $2.26 divs per $
- Marcus Smith (England- fly-half) $2.19 divs per $
- Ignacio Brex (Italy- outside centre) $1.83 divs per $
- Alex Dombrandt (England- No.8) $1.75 divs per $
- Cyril Baille (France- loosehead prop) $1.72 divs per $
Best value buys so far
By quite a considerable margin England’s Kyle Sinckler has proven to be the best buy so far after two rounds of action, topping the chart in both rounds. He was comfortably ahead of anyone else after the Italy match due to his try scoring performance and his starting price of $5.39. Players can made huge gains with the Englishman as his cheap price allows them to invest heavily in him.
The only other player to make the top ten in rounds one and two is Scotland’s Pierre Schoeman, who was the fourth best buy in round one and second best a week later. The loosehead’s high volume of carries and tackles, combined with a low starting price of $5.21 makes him one of the players to look out for as the Championship progresses.
