Scotland may currently sit atop the 2019 Guinness Six Nations table but it’s a different story when it comes to Guinness Six Nations Fantasy Rugby.
In the all-important League of Nations – pitting fans of the six countries against each other in fantasy rugby – Scotland find themselves pipped by Wales at the summit.
The Welsh fans clearly know their onions as managers supporting Warren Gatland’s troops averaged 518.4 points, although some comfort for Scotland will be that, much like in the Championship proper, they are narrowly ahead of the Auld Enemy – averaging 510.9 points to England’s 510.7.
Perhaps fans of each team are stocking up on players from their own nation because the three sides that suffered Round 1 defeats also make up the bottom three in the League of Nations with Italy sitting fourth, Ireland fifth and France at the foot of the table.
Three contrasting matches made for an interesting weekend in Guinness Six Nations Fantasy Rugby, with plenty of high-scoring players to be had, but no-one was as successful with their selections as Tyrone2003.
He was almost Nostradamus-esque in handing his captain’s armband to Blair Kinghorn – the Scottish speedster’s hat-trick earning him 126.7 fantasy points, which was then doubled to 253.4.
The overall leader also received big contributions from the likes of George North (89.5), Stuart Hogg (77.7), Sam Johnson (51.9), Mark Wilson (51) and Josh Navidi (45.9) for a monumental total score of 897.7.
That currently has him 25.4 points clear of second-place Jay but it could all change in Round 2 this weekend.
