Here are 10 picks for fantasy managers

For those playing fantasy rugby game www.testrugby.com, we are also naming players to watch. You can also join the Super Rugby Tips conference at SuperBru. It is difficult to afford a team if playing salary cap fantasy rugby, so you may have to buy bargains, but there are enough new players in Super Rugby 2015 to give you some options. 2015 seems tough to fill a squad without going over budget. The key is to sell players who have the bye straight away and buy them back early.
For managers playing fantasy rugby game www.testrugby.com there are some problems.
Firstly, with limited trades you have to allow for international players being rested.
Managers have to look long-term with some teams like the Highlanders having had the bye twice, while the triple buy rounds were hell for managers.
There are plenty of injuries too, so it is important to check the Super Rugby team lists.
If you run out of trades then you have to minimise the damage with locks probably the lowest scoring position to have a non player in. Also if you are keeping players who have the bye or are injured, make sure you keep the cheapest players as their values will drop less and they won’t take up as much of the salary cap. In some games like www.testrugby.com you can buy trades if you are desperate.
The good news is that the three team bye rounds are over, but managers need to start conserving trades for the finals. Annoyingly because of the format, the top two teams have the bye in the first round of the finals, so sometimes picking players from the Hurricanes may not be great long term strategies!
Some bargain priced players worth purchasing to avoid losing players to the bye are
Waisake Naholo (Highlanders) – This Highlanders winger is the top points scorer in www.testrugby.com Super Rugby 2015 and the top try scorer with eight tries.
Akira Ioane (Blues) – What a last month this Blues loose forward has had. He was the top points’ scorer in Super Rugby Round 12.
Jaco Kriel (Lions) – He is one of the unsung heroes of Super Rugby, much like his Lions team, but Kriel was one of the best players in Super Rugby Round 12.
Samu Kerevi (Reds) – Despite playing for the lowly Reds, Samu Kerevi has the ability to get plenty of go-forwards with nine against the Hurricanes in his last game and two tries.
Nehe Milner-Skudder (Hurricanes) – The hot stepping Milner-Skudder is an excitement machine and should really enjoy playing the Blues this week.
James O’Connor (Reds) – The Boy Wonder is a rare goalkicking outside back who cleaned up against the Rebels last week. Watch for him to do well against the Sharks.
Steve Mafi (Force) – Steve Mafi is listed as a lock, but is very mobile and sometimes plays in the loose forwards. The Highlanders often give away fantasy points to the opposition forwards because of their style, so consider Steve Mafi in your team if he is named.
George Moala (Blues) – The Blues are out of contention, but George Moala has been a fantasy rugby stud recently.
Damian McKenzie (Chiefs) – McKenzie is starting for the Chiefs against the Bulls and they should get a win. McKenzie is a class act for someone so young and since he will be kicking goals, he will be worth buying as a bargain.

Sefanaia Naivalu (Rebels) – Listed as a centre in www.testrugby.com , this guy can motor and scored two tries last week while playing on the wing. He is also an absolute bargain.
Which players are you picking in Super Rugby Round 15 fantasy rugby?
