people can’t be wrong can they? That was the number of people who captained
Teddy and were left bitterly disappointed as he finished with a season low of
53 against a Warriors side who looked completely different from last weekend.
were a racehorse there would be a serious inquiry into their performance.
Looking back I would have taken my projected score on Thursday in a heartbeat!
some 200 points off, but such was the weekend that was. I was able to finish
with 1,207 but after back to back 1480s+ I was feeling a little defeated.
If you’re a head-to-head player like myself, there are only five more rounds before finals so it might be time to start playing matchups instead of overall to get those bragging rights we all desperately seek.
The return of Addin Fonua-Blake would have sparked a few owners interests as he took off where he left after his two week holiday.
He was enormous alongside Marty Taupau with the pair the only
real SuperCoach relevant players in Manly’s side at the moment.
Taumalolo keeps doing Taumalolo things but geez mate an attacking
stat wouldn’t go astray! He still finished with 77, up from the last two
weeks but has only one try for the year and has seemingly put the offload away.
The Hammer looks a hold if you have him, ticking away making some good coin. I wouldn’t be putting him in any 17s but it’s nice to know he can score tries and has that fullback spot wrapped up.
I just checked and Melbourne are paying $5 to win the premiership. That is as good as they’ll be from here on in I think.
They just get better and better with every game with the key
players peaking at the right time with Smith, Papenhuyzen and Munster all
Those who went Api to Smith would have been cheering as he
pulled the strings for another Melbourne victory to finish with 110,
backing up his 136 from last weekend.
Papenhuyzen is also hitting his straps with 110 points, this
makes the FLB spot very interesting.
Brisbane weren’t that bad for 40 minutes, however Haas and
Carrigan were quiet with the latter possibly on the chopping block for me.
One Bronco in my team is enough, I can’t have too many there
stinking up the place. Kotoni Staggs maybe someone to look at as he scored 34
points, mostly base and seems to have taken the goal kicking duties away from
This would usually be a good thing but Brisbane need to score tries for him to kick goals and that might be a bridge too far.
rain tumbled down at Jubilee I don’t think many were expecting this to be a
high scoring game.
with both teams seeming to spend more time worrying about post try celebrations
rather than tackling we saw some massive scores that got a lot of SuperCoach
teams out of trouble.
Johnson was again enormous banking 95 points, his 6th week out
of the last 7 going 75 or above.
Sharks firing it might be worth breaking the bank to get him because he is
hurting a lot of teams that don’t have him.
Now hands up who traded out Lomax about 5 weeks ago?! I’m not
one of them and have been cheering for the past few weeks!! 123 points with two
tries and a bag of goals.
year where the CTW position is so hit and miss, he has been firing and is a set
I shudder to think of anyone trying to get him in now at his price. Katoa was good again for owners. He’s not someone on my radar yet but as the competition’s leading try-scorer, he’s one I hope I don’t come up against in any head-to-head contests.
A wet, scrappy, miserable game played into Canterbury’s hands as they upset the Knights in Newcastle.
Ponga was spruiked highly on the podcast for this matchup and in a low scoring
game he still managed 66 and is starting to find the form that had him in the
top three fullbacks.
price won’t change much so now is a great time to get him in. Bradman Best went
full beast stats mode knocking out 52 with one linebreak his only attacking
onto him for now, there are much bigger problems at hand than to drop Best.
to McCullough and Watson will hurt the Knights as they both look to be out for
lists will be interesting as O’Brien moved Mann there for the game, making 49
tackles to finish with 92. If it’s long term he is my first trade in once
lockout is over.
meant David Klemmer played the entire 80 minutes for a whopping 102 points made
up of 49 tackles and 19 runs.
I said a few weeks ago there aren’t too many SuperCoach relevant
players for the Dogs, but one to watch it Raymond Faitala-Mariner.
He scored 98, nearly a point for each letter in his name, and is a hefty price for a 2RF but could be a big POD come some head-to-head finals.
Titans v Panthers
We were all hoping for another Cleary special taking on the
lowly ranked Titans but in another tough outing for Penrith he was relatively
with 50 which used to be a good score, but owners were looking for a lot more.
are a SuperCoach heavy side who rely heavily on attacking stats. Isaah Yeo
barged over for his first try of the year to reward patient owners as he
finished with 88, his second highest score of the season.
Crichton and Mansour are looking lethal on the left edge with Luai calling the shots. I keep looking to move Luai on but to who? He keeps scoring and making money so there’s no real reason to sack him yet.
