This clash looks to be a very one-sided affair on paper and
I can’t see it not unfolding as the bookies see it. The new rules appear to
suit the better sides, with momentum near impossible to slow down with the six
again call in place. I think the Roosters could win by a hefty margin and hence
will be going hard on their attacking players.
You’re shooting yourself in the foot if you don’t have Teddy for this one. At $16k I think he gets in reasonably affordable for the numbers he’s expected to produce. He’s fresh after missing last week’s clash and will be in everything.
STARS TO AVOID
There aren’t too many stars to avoid to be honest as all
Roosters players have attacking upside in the encounter, while Canterbury and
filled with gun fantasy players as such. At Almost $15k I’m happy to leave
Radley out in the hope he doesn’t add any attacking stats to his workrate, and
he also may get an early shower if the Roosters get out to a lead.
Keary is relishing being the dominant half and has been
tremendous since the competition resumed. Like Teddy, he’ll feature heavily in
all attacking raids and could go big here. At just $11,660 he looks a good
call, while Kyle Flanagan is another option at $13,300 as he should amass
plenty of conversions.
The Roosters are strongest on their left edge, and Tupou
reaps the rewards on the end of the backline. Along with his obvious
try-scoring potential, his workload with ball in hand has been solid in 2020
too. At $9,270 he looks a great prospect.
RFM has returned to an 80 minute edge role recently and
looks undervalued at $8,940 as a result.
Hopoate offers so much more at fullback rather than centre and is a far superior Draftstars player as a result. Attacking stats will be very low against the Roosters, but he should still have onwards of 25 runs and will score well at $10,580.
It’s hard to go past these two. I can see Bulldogs defenders
being gassed and caught tight around the ruck, leaving big overlaps on either
edge at different stages. Tedesco sweeping out wide to an unmarked Tupou could
happening on various occasions.
