Spotlight: Israel Folau

Israel Folau falls next under the watchful gaze of The Scout, and with the Waratahs looking the most likely of the Australian sides to do well this year, we can expect big things.

A player who regularly heads towards the one-hundred metre mark is fantasy gold dust, and Israel Folau is one of those players.

For more information on what the numbers on the player cards mean, take a look at this.

His metres per game ratio currently sits at 91.27, the best for full backs in the game, and contributes to a strong points per game of 33.09.

While his defensive points don't offer much it's hard to suggest there is a deficiency here when fullbacks as a whole don't sit high in the defensive charts, but the damage he can inflict going forward is enough to keep the points ticking over.

The Waratahs start their campaign with a tough home fixture against the Hurricanes, and while Henry is predicting a narrow defeat for them, they should be well placed to deliver some high fantasy scores.
