Super Rugby Dream Team

Super Rugby Dream Team

This weekend sees the last round of the regular Super Rugby season before the finals kick off.

So as we head into the Grand Final weekend on TheBench, let’s take a look at what the perfect team would look like.

For starters, if you have Boom Prinsloo you are probably well on your way to a maiden title. He is the first player to ever crack 100 points (we know it’s only the first season but shhhhh)! He is a massive 28 points ahead of the next best player. A big part of his dominance was his ability to sniff a try finishing equal second behind only TJ Perenara.

The backrow was the position to pick as the top three players were all back rowers – Prinsloo, Ardie Savea and David Pocock.

TJ Perenara dominated from half back scoring the most tries in Super Rugby (10).
