Peter Betham from the Waratahs was the best player in Super Rugby Round 12, do you agree?
Super Rugby Round 12 featured plenty of multiple try scorers meaning that plenty of points were scored in www.testrugby.com
Peter Betham from the Waratahs was the best player of Super Rugby Round 12 with 630 points, while Gareth Anscombe from the Chiefs scored a hattrick and kicked some goals to score 625 points. Two other Waratahs benefitted from the Waratahs 72-10 thrashing of the Kings with other Betham's outside back team mates Israel Folau and Cam Crawford also scored plenty of www.testrugby.com points.
There were plenty of points scored by multiple try scorers too with big Rebels lock Hugh Pyle, Stormers skipper Jean De Villiers and Sharks veteran Meyer Bosman also making the Team of Round 12.
To put the massive points scored in Super Rugby Round 12 into perspective, the team I manage in www.testrugby.com scored a similar amount of points as last week. Last week I improved by around 70 placings, this week I dropped eight spots.
Most players in the Super Rugby Round 12 Team of the Round are worth more than $1 million except Sharks hooker Kyle Cooper, Rebels try scoring lock Hugh Pyle, Waratahs loose forward David Dennis and top scorer of the week Peter Betham. This means that it is sometimes worth taking a punt on a player, especially if they are playing the Kings.
Interestingly only two New Zealand players made the Team of the Round, despite four New Zealand teams winning, while five players made it from both Australia and South Africa which is amazing given that only one Australian and South African team won.
