Wallet to see if I can afford Kotoni Staggs’…
He has sparked the
Broncos in his return over the last couple of weeks. They haven’t exactly set
the world on fire, nor have they won a game, but he is making a huge difference
in both attack and defence.
He scored two tries
and now has the kicking duties and is a player with a very very high ceiling
and could win you those close head-to-head battles.
He’ll be my first
trade in this week. TPJ was also good, breaking tackles all night. I have still
got my doubts on him though as he seems to have more carry over points than yearly
SJ rewarded any new bandwagon jumpers with a nice 70 setting up a couple of tries, and Katoa went over for another try, showing he can be pretty consistent and a great option for a same game multi.
Ahh my prayers were
answered when I asked for some attacking stats from Taumalolo!
He barged over for
his second try of the year and banged out a massive 109 points.
bittersweet when a player of his ownership goes big. Nonetheless it was nice to
see and let’s hope that trend continues.
The return of John Bateman was a big watch for many and he showed he has not slowed down since his two shoulder ops. He set a try up to finish with 88 and played the entire 80 minutes. A massive POD option if he can stay injury free.
Sea Eagles v Panthers
There is something
sinister about watching your own side get put to the sword by a player in your
It was tough
viewing watching Nathan Cleary carve up my beloved Eagles but the points he racked
up took the sting out of the loss.
He is undoubtedly
the form half of the competition and showed his class on Saturday night.
This is a Panthers
side that can go all the way and he is in for some big scores for the remainder
of the year.
Api Koroisau was
huge in his comeback match scoring a try and is an option to trade to from
Smith with the Panthers dream run.
those cash chasers, Staines hurt his hamstring scoring his second try of
the night and may miss a few weeks and more importantly we will have to wait
for that all important third game.
For the poor Eagles DCE was huge again setting up two tries. He has led from the front these past few weeks and, whilst always has had that SuperCoach irrelevancy about him, with Turbo still a few weeks away, he could be in for some massive scores.
Gee those poor Bulldogs
sure know how to lose a game! Aiden Tolman taking a quick tap is bad enough.
When it’s 10m out in front and you are behind by two points it’s a cardinal
The Dogs were brave,
but brave doesn’t get you competition points. RFM continues to score tries for
fun and Averillo is holding his own for any owners but that’s about where it
ends for the Dogs SuperCoach wise.
For the Eels though Mitch Moses was good again for a player costing $400k. I nearly traded him in for Luai this week but then that would have gone against my ‘No Mitch Moses’ policy I have adhered to since day one.
Clint Gutherson is
a near must in the FLB position, even without the goal-kicking duties he gets
through a mountain of work and always seems to find the line.
He’s costly but
worth every cent. Now Mr Maiko Sivo, I know you don’t read these articles
but hello?? Any thought of getting in and looking for the ball?
He reminded me of a
young Nick Moon out on the wing not doing any of the hard work and taking up
too much strapping tape.
The Spy touched on
it during the week on the podcast and said he could go huge, but he also has
that low game in him.
Well Spy, lesson learnt! He’s a sell and I wouldn’t be going near him for the remainder of the year.
