With only one game of the Guinness PRO14 season left, this is the last chance to make changes to Fantasy teams for the Final on Saturday.

Rhys Patchell, Scarlets

Scarlets saw off Glasgow Warriors in the first Semi-Final, while Leinster edged past Munster in the second, to set up a delicious clash between the defending champions and the European champions in Dublin.

With everything on the line and Fantasy Rugby hanging in the balance as we draw towards the most anticipated game of the season, do not forget to change your team!

Scarlets’ Gareth Davies was central in their success against Glasgow Warriors on Friday night, scoring a try and assisting another to tally up 10 fantasy points.

Rhys Patchell was another from the first Semi-Final who was instrumental in the victory, touching down for the first try and converting all four of Scarlets’ scores to gain 11 fantasy points.

Others who are worth slotting into your team from the Scarlets side are Steff Evans, who has the most fantasy points this season for a winger with 119, and Tadhg Beirne, who has the second highest tally of any player this season with 135.

As Leinster triumphed by one point over Munster on Saturday to reach their second final of the season, Jack Conan notched up 12 fantasy points after scoring the only try of the match and making 19 tackles throughout.

The ever-impressive James Lowe was another who scored 12 fantasy points after setting up Conan’s try and will no doubt be fired up for the Final following a man-of-the-match performance.

Also worth considering from the Champions Cup-winning side are James Ryan, who made a whopping 23 tackles against Munster, and Max Deegan, who has earned a century of fantasy points throughout the season.
