Fantasy Six Nations: Top tips for round two

After round one of the 2017 Six Nations it was Stuart Hogg and Leigh Halfpenny who grabbed top points in the fantasy leagues, but here are some tips to help you surge up the league tables in round two.

The first weekend of the Six Nations has given a lot of insight into which players are in-form and which players the coaches wish to substitute and when.

Top tips for fantasy Six Nations

1 Reliable front row – It is important to establish a rliable front row to guaruntee top appearance points and optimise your chances of a rare try from a fron row forward. Scottish duo Fraser Brown and Zander Fagerson both played the whole match against Ireland.

Wales’ Ken Owens and English scrum conesuer Dan Cole also played the full 80 in their respected matches.

2 Kicking king – Although Paddy Jackson will be facing Italy, the young Irish fly half is not yet a renowned international goal kicker. However, Leigh Halfpenny converted the most kicks last weekend against Italy and he could be a good option again in round two.

Wales have brought in scrumming experts Tomas Francis and Rob Evans to the front row against England which, through penalties at the set piece, could create a kicking dual in the first half with England’s ever reliable centre Owen Farrell ready to respond.

3 Muzza’s a must – Conor Murray is an absolute must-pick at scrum half in round two. The Irish number nine scored three tries in last year’s tournament and he will be up against Italy, who struggled to deal with Welsh scrum half Rhys Webb in the opening weekend – making him a big try threat.

4 Key back three – Stuart Hogg’s free scoring start to the tournament makes him a soid choice for round two and despite not scoring against France, Elliot Daly looked dangerous on the wing for England.
