Turpin is by no means a guaranteed 80 minute
hooker despite McCullough’s departure.
Anthony Seibold has suggested that he will
rotate him as necessary throughout matches.
However, if he can grab 65 minutes he is definitely worth it at a ripe price of $336k. You would have to think he will make plenty of tackles giving him a decently high point floor and if he can jag a few try-assists he will be a stellar POD for those who want to roll the dice.
2. Sione Katoa
Averaging 77.5PPG over the opening two
rounds and priced at $368k.
It would be fair to say Katoa has good job
security and some big price rises to come, but I would still classify him as
high risk given the lack of sample size.
Whilst he looks the goods with 40-45 base
in the opening rounds which is extraordinarily high for a CTW, his previous
seasons have been nowhere near that high in base output, hence we could just
have a statistical anomaly on our hands.
In saying that, he looks the goods with enough tackle busts and offloads to warrant a POD selection to chase some ranks.
I would have classed Twal as a high risk
POD before team lists dropped but the Tigers bench makeup means that Twal is
all but guaranteed 60+ minutes.
Given that Twal accumulated 1.1PPM all in base over the opening few rounds he shapes as a borderline must-have at under 500k in a position that doesn’t really have much else to offer at this point in time.
4. Josh Mansour
Normally I would never have a CTW as a low-risk
POD, however, Josh Mansour is as close as you’ll get based on what I saw over
the pre-season and opening two rounds.
His ability to break tackles, offload, and
make over 8 metres every run is invaluable at CTW. Sitting at a measly 5%
ownership going into Round 3 he is an incredible pick up to bolster your CTW
