Super Rugby XV - The Team of Round 7

Super Rugby XV - The Team of Round 7

Super Rugby Round 7 featured some great performances from players who we knew had the potential, but who finally came through and made the Super Rugby Round 7 Team of the Round.

There were some unlikely heroes on Friday night with Melbourne Rebels players Jason Woodward, Luke Jones and Mitch Inman making the Team of the Round.

Jason Woodward was the best player in Super Rugby Round 7 after his impressive form against the Brumbies.  Woodward could be a great option as a goal-kicking outside back (assuming he retains the kicking duties).

Woodward scored a try, kicked eight goals, caught six kicks, took a lineout, made three line breaks and four go forwards along with two tackles according to the definitions on www.testrugby.com for a haul of 620 points or 27 actual points.  He costs $875,000 and could be a great option if you have trades left.  

It is also great to see a return to the team for Chiefs LIam Messam and Aaron Cruden although gut wrenching for people who just sold him!  

Plenty of managers will be sweating on the fitness of the popular Israel Folau and Kieran Read for next week, given the shortage of trades.  The Sharks have the bye in Super Rugby Round 8 which may also require some strategic management decisions to be made.

The Super Rugby XV Round 7 Team of the Round includes
6 Australians
5 New Zealanders
4 South Africans
