With the crucial back-to-back matches in the rear-view mirror for another Heineken Champions Cup season, take a look at who has impressed in this year’s Champions Fantasy Rugby so far.
Toulouse full-back Thomas Ramos recently enjoyed his best week in Champions Fantasy Rugby, helping his side remain top of Pool 1 with a convincing success over Wasps. Ramos totalled 24 fantasy points, meaning he now leads the competition for points with 71 – ahead of fly-half duo Owen Farrell and Adam Hastings. Given his reasonable price and terrific strike rate, he is definitely worth considering as the French side face defending champions Leinster Rugby in Round 5.
Adam Hastings has caught the eye of many Champions Fantasy Rugby owners with three consecutive double-digit weekends in the competition. The 22-year-old fly-half has featured prominently in all three wins for Glasgow Warriors this season, including 17 points from the kicking tee in a Round 3 win over Lyon. With two key matches against Cardiff Blues and Saracens in January, Hastings will need to kick well in order for the Scottish region to reach the knockout stages.

Iain Henderson had been having a decent season before this weekend, but the Ulster lock exploded into life in Round 4, scoring two tries in a performance that racked up 19 fantasy points. Assuming he can keep that form up in 2019, Henderson can add to his tally against Racing 92 in what looks like a crucial Heineken Champions Cup Pool 4 clash.
Saracens hooker Jamie George looks set for another extended run in the Heineken Champions Cup with the two-time winners sitting top of Pool 3 with 18 points. That will be music to the ears of fantasy owners, given George has already tallied 26 fantasy points this season. With at least two more matches on the horizon, he looks a decent long-term option for any side.
