Interestingly the highest scoring positions are in www.testrugby.com Super Rugby 2013 after 9 Rounds.
Half and Outside Back provide half of the top 20 scorers between them with these positions having plenty of goal-kickers and try-scorers. Lock is the position with only one player in the top 20 overall and Steven Luatua is listed as a lock, but plays in the loose forwards.
Front Row - 3
Lock - 1
Loose Forward - 2
Half - 5
Centre - 4
Outside Back - 5

Here are the best value players from www.testrugby.com Super Rugby 2013 up to Round 9. I have done some analysis based on the cost per point. This could be slightly skewed by the Blues, Rebels and Stormers players having the bye in Round 10. This is from players in the Top 20 for overall points.



Labuschagne on the charge!

Lappies Labuschagne and Jacques Engelbrecht are the best value for money players in Super Rugby www.testrugby.com. Both of these players average cost $328 per point.

Best value players in Super Rugby 2013 after 9 rounds

1 Lappies Labuschagne - Cheetahs - $328 per point
1 Jacques Engelbrecht - Kings - $328 per point
3 Charles Piutau - Blues - $397 per point
