Fantasy League debrief

Top performers

Hull FC powerhouse Chris Satae was the standout performer in Round 17 of Fantasy League. The imposing prop scored a try, made 27 tackles and 8 tackle busts during his sides unfortunate defeat to the Dragons. His round total of 75 was as an extremely impressive return despite being on the losing side, and was unbeaten in Round 17.

Rhinos stand-off Blake Austin was another outstanding performer in Fantasy last weekend after clocking a notable 17 carries, 2 clean breaks and 2 offloads during a valiant 80-minute stint. Austin has been integral to his sides recent form which has seen them win their last two games. 

Liam Kay benefited from a switch to the loose forward position in Round 17 and exceeded expectations to score an effective 68 points. Kay played an impressive 74 minutes through the middle, where he scored a try and made 35 tackles.

Arthur Romano impressed for a Dragons side that continued their impressive string of wins, cementing their place at the top. With a try and 9 tackle busts, owners of the Frenchman will be satisfied with his return.

Honorary mentions go to the ever dependable Benjamin Garcia (66), Jack Broadbent (64), Jake Clifford (64) and  try scoring machine Josh Charnley (64). 

Fantasy flops

Owners of popular Fantasy second rower Chris McQueen will have been left disappointed with his points return on the weekend after he tallied just 23 points.  With no real standout plays by tMcQueen in a struggling Huddersfield side, owners will be keen for him to bounce back in round 18.

Ryan Hall was another disappointing performer in Fantasy following a dismal display by the Robins. The England international winger failed to contribute anything of note, coinciding with his teams poor attack at the Leigh Sports Village.

Saints star Konrad Hurrell didn't quite hit his stride in Round 17 and could not contribute to his sides victory over the Tigers. Hurrell managed just 20 points on Friday Night, due in part to several demerits during an error ridden performance.

Looking ahead

The Rhinos will be without the in form Blake Austin for their Round 18 trip to Salford. The half back - who was the Betfred Player of the Match in his sides last two games - will serve a one-match suspension this weekend.

Round 18 could see the return of popular Fantasy half-back George Williams. Williams has been absent for the past two weeks due to injury, but is a chance of returning for the Wolves crunch tie against Champions St Helens.
