How are your Guinness PRO14 Fantasy Rugby 17-18 XVs getting on?

Round Seven of the Guinness PRO14 was another enthralling, white-knuckle ride and amid the action, there were individual feats and performances that saw a host of stars rack up precious fantasy points.

As always, we’ve taken a look back at the top three fantasy performers from Round Seven to help inspire you to cultivate your winning XV.

For the second round in a row, a Glasgow Warriors man was the star fantasy performer, with George Horne following in the footsteps of teammate Callum Gibbins.

The 22-year-old scrum-half topped the charts with a fine 16-point haul, scoring a late try and also helping to tee up Nick Grigg for a score as Glasgow ran out comfortable 43-13 winner at Scotstoun.

The second-highest fantasy team performer was none other than Zebre hooker Oliviero Fabiani.

The Italy international racked up 15 fantasy points as a result of his display in Zebre’s dramatic 24-23 defeat at the hands of the Toyota Cheetahs, with the 27-year-old picking up the man-of-the-match award while also scoring his team’s second try of the evening from a driving maul.

And rounding off the top three was Cheetahs winger Makazole Mapimpi, who dotted down twice at the Stadio Lanfranchi in Parma as his side secured their first away victory in the Guinness PRO14.

The 27-year-old recorded 14 fantasy points and showed off his ball-control abilities as he scored the first try of the game.
