Fantasy rugby players might have found the weekend’s top performers came a little out of the blue, with the top dogs picked by few competitors across our channels.

Chris Farrell, Munster

Three players scored hat-tricks in round 10: Hame Faiva for Benetton, Luke Morgan from Ospreys and Keith Earls

Earls scored 19 fantasy points but misses out on the list as his teammate Chris Farrell turned in two tries and a man of the match performance to register an equal points tally.

Hame Faiva – Benetton – 31 points

A first-half hat-trick from hooker Hame Faiva ensured that Benetton maintained their 100 per cent record against Isuzu Southern Kings and finished as the weekend’s top fantasy points scorer.

Three almost identical tries for the New Zealander meant he also picked up the man of the match award to bring his grand total to a colossal 31 points.

However, he is selected by 0% of teams and therefore it is quite unlikely that you will have benefitted from his performance. Congratulations if you did of course!

Luke Morgan –Ospreys – 24 points

Winger Luke Morgan helped himself to a hat-trick in Ospreys 43-0 win over Zebre.

The Welshman went over acrobatically in the first-half and scored and added another after the break before latching onto a Sam Davies cross kick for his third.

A man of the match award brought Morgan’s total points tally up to 24 – not a bad haul.

Chris Farrell – Munster – 19 points

Munster made light work of Edinburgh in Chris Farrell’s first game back since he was injured for Ireland in the Six Nations.

Farrell marked his comeback with a dominant first-half performance in which he bagged a try.

The 25-year-old then turned in a man of the match performance before rounding off the scoring in fitting fashion with another try to amass a total of 19 points.
