Hutcho comes in for
the injured Luke Keary, with a mediocre 38PPG average from last year.
He has okay base for a
half, averaging 25BPG in the four games he played last year.
The huge upside for
Hutcho is that the Roosters play the Tigers and the Broncos in the next two
The Tigers have given up
72 points since the return of BJ to the right centre spot for the Tigers,
including 28 points to the Bulldogs, which must be one of their highest scores
in the last three years.
Hutcho will be lining
up on the left-hand side against the Benji, BJ and Nofo combo and the following
week he will be up against the Broncos infamous right edge defence.
Whilst he isn’t the
silkiest half, he has a big body and isn’t afraid to run it.
Welch has a 3RA of 57
points with a big bump in his minutes recently.
With Jesse Bromwich
being suspended and Finucane out injured I expect Welch to see big minutes and
55-65 SuperCoach points this week.
To’o has been named on
the extended bench for the Panthers and is averaging 50PPG with only two tries
That average will go up with the Panthers soft draw coming up and the fact they are using the right side a lot more in attack since he got injured.
Hopefully he gets promoted into the side this week, but if not he’ll still be worth storing for when he does return.
