Hoppa is averaging 48PPG in a lacklustre Bulldogs side.
Coach Pay has shifted him to fullback where he should see
a lot more ball and will be involved in most of their attacking plays.

AFB has had a modest start to the year currently
averaging 54PPG, well under his breakout season in 2019 of 66PPG.
He is slightly down from his minutes last year, but
nothing too alarming and I don’t see him getting reduced minutes with a lack of

We are just waiting for the attacking stats to boost his
average and they will come.
He is still looking for the offload and it is only a

Without Michael Morgan, the Cowboys have been attacking

Once Morgan comes back, Marsters will have more involvement and his scores will go up accordingly.
