Another captivating weekend of Guinness Six Nations action had managers everywhere racking up totals and assessing leader boards.
England’s wide men benefited from a dominant attacking display against the Italians and resulted in a flurry of points for those who chose English backs.
Elsewhere, a powerful Irish performance at the Aviva against France yielded points from the pack. Whilst Wales’ fantastic defensive effort against Scotland was rewarded with plenty of Fantasy points as well. A quick rundown of who the big scorers were.

Joe Cokanasiga- 92.9
The flying winger Joe Cokanasiga churned through the metres every time he was called upon to carry in a frightening attacking performance. His ability to beat the first man and offload out of the tackle was the catalyst for more than a couple of England’s tries. Bagged one himself for good measure, ensuring he reached a staggering 90 plus points total.
Manu Tuilagi- 86.5 points
England’s midfield bulldozer Manu Tuilagi was at his rampaging best, dotting down twice against the Italians in a typically physical display. His ability to continually make inroads into their defence and carry England over the gain-line undoubtedly helped him to such a healthy points total.
Jonny May- 75.1
The master poacher Jonny May was on blistering form once again, benefitting from England’s front foot ball. He found himself in space on a few occasions and racked up the points for defenders beaten and metres made. Another try to his name meant he ended the day with a bucket load of points.

Hadleigh Parkes- 63.89
Man of the Match for Wales Hadleigh Parkes put in a heroic performance in defence against the scots. Not only did he marshal the Welsh defence, but also offered himself as a willing carrier right through to the final whistle. Rewarded with points for his high output in both attack and defence.
James Ryan- 59.6
Ireland’s industrious young lock James Ryan was once again one of the highest scoring forwards of the week. His immense workload, tackle count, carrying and lineout prowess carried him over the 50-point mark. At the forefront of a powerful Irish forward effort.
