In order to draft the best fantasy rugby team, you need to understand how to put together your fantasy team. Fantasy rugby consists of 11 players on the pitch and 6 on the bench. While real-life rugby has 15 players per team on the pitch. Your team consists of a Fly Half, two Midfielders, three Outside Backs, one Halfback, two Loose Forwards, a Front Row and finally a Lock. In order to have the best super rugby fantasy picks, you can follow these easy fantasy rugby draft tips. Alternatively you can choose the auto-draft option, where the rugby players are auto-filled in order of player rankings in the fantasy rugby league.
