Podcast Fantasy XV Selection
Listen to the latest episode of the Official Scottish Rugby Podcast to find out how the below Fantasy XV team was selected by hosts Al Kellock, Chris Paterson, Rachel Malcolm and Jamie McMillan. Here is a summary of why the panel selected the players they did.
1. Tom Smith
An undoubted great. Brilliant in all areas of the game, one of the toughest too and could easily have played any position in the team.
2. Lana Skeldon
A goal kicking, dynamic hooker and good under pressure.
3. Tadhg Furlong
A rock of a tight head with the ability to impact the game with ball in hand.
4. Scott Cummings
Dynamic player, leads from the front and is one of the most consistent.
5. Maro Itoje
Horrible to play against, physically dominant, consistent and has the ability to single handily influence games.
6. Pieter-Steph du Toit
Recent World Player of the year, he’s an enforcer with some of the best soft skills and decision making in the game.
7. Hamish Watson
All action, ball carrier, jackaller, the perfect 7.
8. Jade Konkel
Exactly what you want from an 8. A leader, physical both sides of the ball and impacts every game she plays in.
9. Antoine DuPont
No words needed...Antoine DuPont!
10. Finn Russell
The attacking genius that modern defences fear!
11. Rhona Lloyd
Flat out or nothing. A winger who loves to take on the opposition even if the odds are against her. Try scorer.
12. Gregor Townsend
The attacking genius that older defences feared!
13. Emily Scarratt
A world class outside centre! She has so much time on the ball, delivers under pressure every time and can do it all.
14. Cheslin Kolbe
Unbelievable player. One of the reasons so many of us tune in to watch the game. Check out his highlights!
15. Stuart Hogg
One of the world’s most feared attackers. Knows the game better than anyone and has the ability to light up every game!
