Jacob Stockdale proved once again he is the must-have man for Guinness Six Nations Fantasy Rugby managers in Round Three.

Jacob Stockdale proved once again he is the must-have man for Guinness Six Nations Fantasy Rugby managers in Round Three.

The Ireland wing not only scored a ninth try in eight games in the Championship as Ireland won 26-16 against Italy, he also led the fantasy point scorers on the third weekend of action.

His 92.8 points led the way in a backline packed with Irish fliers including Keith Earls (76.6 points) and Chris Farrell (64.4 points), who also made the top fantasy XV.

Stockdale reclaimed his spot as the most expensive player in the game (17.9 stars), as he carried for 144 metres in total from his ten carries.

Their opponents in Rome provide one member of the XV in scrum-half Tito Tibaldi (22.4 points), who partners French youngster Romain Ntamack (64.2 points) in the half-backs.

Yoann Huget was another man from Les Bleus to make the cut with 62.4 points means he falls just short of being the top scorer from their 27-10 win against Scotland.

He beat five defenders on his way to 76 metres made, as well as five tackles, as his price popped up to 14.8 stars from 13.2 before Round Three.

Wales full-back Liam Williams completes the backline after his fine performance as they saw off England 21-13 in Cardiff.

He scooped the man of the match award on his way to 57.4 points – making him the top scorer from clash at Principality Stadium.

Wales contribute three men to the pack in the top XV from Round Three, starting with hooker Ken Owens (33.5 points).

But he was not the top scorer among the front rowers as France’s Demba Bamba racked up 52.3 points, with his performance including three defenders beaten while carrying and six tackles on defence.

England’s Ben Moon (19 points) completes the props, but it is an all-Wales pairing in the locks with Alun Wyn Jones (39.8 points) and try scorer Cory Hill (49.1 points).

Peter O’Mahony, Guinness Man of the Match in Rome, is the highest-scoring forward with 58.6 points as he is named in the back row.

The team is completed by two workhorse flankers as England try scorer Tom Curry (49.8 points), with 25 tackles against Wales, and France’s Wenceslas Lauret, with 22 tackles against Scotland, who was just short of the Ireland skipper as the top-scoring forward with 57.7 points.
