Fantasy Six Nations: Round four top tips

If you’re starting to get worried about your less than average league position in Six Nations fantasy rugby then here are some top tips to get one back on your friends or colleagues.

1 Don’t wait until Saturday: It might sound obvious but there is a Friday night game in round four, so do not wait until Saturday morning to make changes because it will be too late.

2 Nervous North: Wales wing George North has weathered heavy criticism this week due to his poor performance against Scotland. But North is known for his big game performances so if he is already in your team, don’t lose faith just yet.

On the other hand the Scottish bulldozer Tim Visser, who scored against North in round three, is in fine form and finished a wonderful try for Harlequins last weekend.

3 Welsh rascal: Despite some recent excellent performances, Wales scrum half Rhys Webb has failed to score an international try in eight months, so it may be a matter of when and not if in round four.

Another good option for scrum half is Ben Youngs. The England regular has scored against every team in the Six Nations except for Scotalnd – who will be without captain and experienced scrum half Greig Laidlaw.

4 Vakatawa time: Virimi Vakatawa has endured a quiet Six Nations campaign so far, but he is fully fit and set to start against Italy. This is a simple equation for guaranteed points.

5 Roll of the dice: If you’re feeling adventerous and need a big gamble to pay off in round four, then picking French fly half Camille Lopez as kicker against Italy instead of England’s star man Owen Farrell could pay off.

Italy’s current run of form should allow the French to accumulate a large total, and therefore convert a lot of kicks. Meanwhile, Farrell suffered a leg injury in training during the week and had one of his worst ever kicking displays in an England shirt in round three against the Italians.
