In the penultimate round of regular Guinness PRO14 action, three players shone across the board and earned themselves a bucket-load of Fantasy Rugby points.

Ospreys surged past Isuzu Southern Kings in South Africa, with Dan Evans managing a trio of tries before Bradley Davies doubled up to give them a 43-7 victory.

While Scarlets also saw a confident triumph over Zebre at Parc Y Scarlets, with Johnny McNicholl starring on the wing.

Dan Evans, Ospreys – 24 points

The Ospreys full-back is on fire lately, with eight tries in three matches for the Welsh region, putting him in the Overall Dream Team with 126 Fantasy points this season.

Evans dotted down twice in the first half then completed his treble before the hour mark as Ospreys ran riot against Isuzu Southern Kings.

Not only did the speedster finish off some scintillating scores, he also managed a mighty 129 metres through 12 carries, earning him 24 Fantasy points.

Bradley Davies, Ospreys – 20 points

Along with Evans, Davies got in on the act at Madibaz Stadium.

The lock dotted down either side of half time, the first coming from a driving-maul line-out and the second an easy run in after finding himself in space on the wing.

It was an impressive shift from Davies, with 12 carries and 12 tackles as he scored 20 Fantasy Rugby points.

Uzair Cassiem, Scarlets – 19 points

Two tries from the big No. 8 helped Scarlets to a vital win over Zebre in their hunt for Guinness PRO14 Final Series qualification.

Cassiem opened the scoring less than a quarter of an hour in, with the Welsh region overpowering the Italians in the scrum against the put in for the South African to break off the back and dive over.

But his second was the all-important bonus-point try that Scarlets needed, as he crashed over with less than 10 minutes remaining to tally up 19 Fantasy points.
