A look back on all the Fantasy studs and duds from the weekend's Super 15 action.

Hurricanes 22 Force 16
The star: Hurricanes front rower Jeff Allen topped all scorers with 31 points courtesy of his first try of the season and 18 tackles - a season high.
The dud: After a 20-point effort against the Crusaders last week, Sam Norton-Knight had a night to forget in Wellington scoring just two points after three knock-ons.
Value pick: Brad Shields' price tag has increased six times over the last seven weeks but he remains at great value ($4,680,000) following his 25 points in the Hurricanes' victory.

Waratahs 25 Chiefs 20
The star: Cam Crawford ($7,620,000) was no doubt missed by Fantasy players heading into his Waratahs debut but might be a cheap pick-up this week after scoring 24 points against the Chiefs including a try in his first match.
The dud: Another disappointing outing for Aaron Cruden who scored just three points - the third straight week his price has dropped.


Value pick: Waratahs front rower John Ulugia scored 16 points, a nice haul with a price tag of just $1,970,000.

Crusaders 24 Highlanders 8
The star: Not many points on offer his this one with Tyler Bleyendaal leading the way with 17 points thanks to five successful kick attempts.
The dud: Hosea Gear was in the negatives for the second straight week with -4. Ouch.
Value pick: No value at all in this Southern clash.

Reds 19 Brumbies 19
The star: For the third straight week Reds back rower Jake Schatz head a 20+ game, scoring 24 against the Brumbies to lead all scorers. He's also scored a try in each of the last three weeks which obviously helps but he also continues to increase his tackle count for 16 on Saturday.
The dud: Reds teammate Will Genia finished with -5. No tackles made and three missed along with four knock ons. A game to forget for the Wallabies number nine.
Value pick: Christian Lealiifano is still a cheap option ($8,310,000) despite another strong 23-point outing put him out in front as the top scoring first-five in Fantasy Rugby.

Sharks 6 Cheetahs 12
The star: Another local derby which provided little in Fantasy points. Cheetahs forwards Lodewyk de Jager and Heinrich Brussow were the top scorer with 19 points.
The dud: Cobus Reinach now holds the record for lowest score in a game after a -11 outing for the Sharks. Reinach knocked on seven times in his side's defeat. Dud indeed.
Value pick: de Jager's 19 points were on offer for just a low, low price of $3,110,000.

Kings 0 Bulls 34
The star: The Bulls shared the love around with four players cracking the 20-point mark, with back Jan Serfontein topping all players with 23.
The dud: Not a great week for halfbacks with Kings number nine Nicolas Vergallo scoring -3.
Value pick: Bulls back rower Jacques Potgieter finished with 20 points - a steal at his price tag of $5,980,000.
