How’s your team looking? Whether you’re already walking your mates’ league or need improvements these are the forwards to get in your Fantasy Rugby team for this weekend.
We’ve included a few big money signings and a couple of bargains to suit any budget and help you start racking up the points.
If you haven’t picked a team it’s not too late, you can read our explainer of how the game works by clicking here.
Stander may be the second most expensive forward in the game at 17 stars, but the Irish flanker guarantees big returns with his dominant tackling displays and powerful carries in attack.
Awarded man of the match in Ireland’s win over Scotland, Stander earned 75.1 points for Fantasy Rugby players largely thanks to covering 72 metres on a tournament-high 17 carries and making 15 tackles in Dublin.
It’s another crunch tie for the Irish this Saturday on home soil against a Wales team flying high off the back of downing Italy and Andy Farrell will need his combative blindside on top form to make it two from two.
If you have the budget, consider investing in Stander to get your game week off to a strong start in the first match of the weekend.

France No.8 Alldritt represents a great value-for-money option for your back row.
He costs just 13.9 stars, which is significantly less than teammate Charles Ollivon, but still raked in 58.9 Fantasy Rugby points in France’s 24-17 win against England.
Alldritt thrived in Shaun Edwards’ new-look French defensive set up landing 14 tackles including three dominant tackles and could be a shrewd acquisition to your squad for the visit of Italy on Sunday.
With the backs scoring the majority of your tries the forwards can be an area to cut costs to save some extra money.
Sutherland costs 10.4 stars – a fraction of the price of the most expensive props but still outscored many of his more expensive rivals.
The Scot won 23.6 Fantasy Rugby points in game week one, more than Kyle Sinckler, Jefferson Poirot and Joe Marler.
Despite a disappointing result in Paris, Underhill earned Fantasy Rugby players 23.7 points, which considering the lack of bonus points for winning the match, is still a decent return.
Underhill made 44 metres with the ball and 60% of his tackles were point-scoring dominant tackles.
The English will be keen to make amends for the France defeat and a physical Calcutta Cup showdown is the sort of fiery fixture Underhill thrives in – a snip at 13.9 stars.
This one is a bit of a wildcard but if you are strapped for cash Cannone could be your man.
The Italian is the cheapest second row in the game but still enjoyed an impressive performance in Cardiff that included 12 tackles and covered 43 metres in nine carries to earn 12.9 points.
With potential for one of the shrewdest purchases in the pack, at 7.1 stars he is one of the best bargains around.
