Carnage. The Oxford Dictionary describes carnage as a great and usually bloody slaughter or injury (as in battle).
It has now been updated and actually includes the phrase ‘also see
Rounds 6 and 7 of NRL Supercoach’.
There isn’t any other way to put it. These past two weeks have been
horrific. Injuries, suspensions and just poor scoring has seen some teams not
even able to field a full 17, and if you are lucky enough to have the full
quota, well scores haven’t been great.
But alas there is always next week and as soon as lockout is over you can start to plan for the coming weeks.
I’m hoping the NRL don’t look too hard into this game as it appeared the
Panthers fielded 14 for the whole game – 13 players and a zit on Nathan
Cleary’s forehead so big it earnt 56 points in the VB Hard Earned index.
Thankfully the pair were able to slide through a tired Rabbitohs defence
and score a late try to boost him to 99 to again show he’s clearly the
premier half in SuperCoach.
For the Rabbitohs, Cook and Walker again matched their average scoring 61 and 55 respectively, whilst a late sin-bin was probably the only highlight for a struggling Latrell as he finished the night with 9.
Keeping Lomax in my side is one of the reasons I’m placed much higher
than the SC Spy.
He has now scored tries in two consecutive weeks amassing 71 and 86 in the
process, and if he keeps that up he is a genuine keeper in the CTW department.
McInnes managed 64 but has plateaued out in the last couple weeks and is
set to lose some cash.
For the Chooks, Brett Morris just continues to score tries but you may need a helping hand from Uncle Nick if you are to get him into your side as he is set to become one of the most expensive CTW in the competition.
As bad as some of us may have gone this weekend, at least you’re not
Anthony Seibold and you will still be coach of your side by season’s end.
The Broncos have run out of excuses now and will need something special
to turn it around.
Haas and Pangai Jnr were quiet scoring 65 and 69, as was Arrow who looks
a sell after scoring only 43.
The marketing team at Uncle Tobys are now placing stickers on their sachets of oats saying they have no affiliation with either Corey or Xavier after the pair tarnished their good name scoring 12 points between them.
Eels v Raiders
There were six
scores off 96 or more out of this game with the match being one of the best
since the return of the NRL.
Mitch Moses was a
major casualty out of this though and is set to spend some significant time on

We learnt that Ryan
Matterson is fixture proof and will score well week in week out and is a
captaincy option moving forward.
Keep an eye on him
next week though as the loss of Moses could dampen his scoring.
Big Corey Horsburgh also left the match on crutches after it appeared he was cutting an onion just after being tackled. He is also a sell.
