Well after an interesting if not predictable 3rd week with the only stand out news being that anyone who was ‘Thuderstruck’ with the idea Connacht were going to run riot over Zebre have come up short of points due to a thunderstorm and what they were lucky to come away from and Zebre could easily feel aggrieved as they had the Westies on the ropes.

On The FRU Fantasy League we have no massive movement, winning the round points haul is Paddy’s Pro’s with a round total of 73 points mostly curtosey of his Welsh contingent with a spattering of Nacewa. But still topping the overall board we have The Hinchmen, Widgets Ruffs and Fancy hat Club all still occupying the top 3. Clowrys ‘Six Bells’ still occupy the bottom slot but although having missed a couple of rounds theres only a few points separating them and Butts ‘Butler’

Round 4 teams have started making tehir rounds this afternoon, so have a quick scan of where you think you need some replacements from donkeys to injuries, picks for games of teh round Treviso vs Dragons could have some cheap players on offer and dare I say Scarlets looking for a scalp may take Connacht to town at Rodney parade!
