Round 20 of the Guinness PRO14 kicks off on Friday evening, which means the return of the Guinness PRO14 Fantasy Rugby game.

James Lowe, Leinster

With seven massive matches across the weekend there will be points aplenty throughout both conferences, making it all important to get your team sorted.

Friday night’s fixtures sees Munster on the second leg of their South Africa tour to face the Cheetahs with Glasgow Warriors and Ulster hosting Connacht and Ospreys respectively.

Before that though, we’ve cast our mind back to last weekend’s top performers and what they could deliver this time around.

Two Leinster players feature after their seven-try triumph over Zebre, with both notching two scores each in the impressive win.

Max Deegan put in a man-of-the-match performance at the RDS Arena, grabbing his first try after pinching the ball from a Zebre ruck and running in.

The No.8 then managed another as he found himself on the end of a flowing Leinster attack to dive over for their fourth try, so his confidence will be sky-high when they host Benetton on Saturday.

Leinster will be back at the RDS once again on Saturday with kick-off at 7.35pm.

James Lowe will also be raring for that match as he increased his impressive tally for the season by two against the Italians last weekend.

The winger’s first came through a powerful drive for the line from close range and his second was very similar when he found himself on the end of a move in the corner.

Dan Biggar is another that performed well and does so consistently, as the Ospreys fly-half kicked 14 of their 39 points to take the game beyond Connacht and earn himself 18 Fantasy Rugby points.

Ospreys face a tricky trip to play-off chasing Ulster in Round 20 with Biggar likely to be a key figure as his side look to overhaul Cardiff Blues in Conference A.
