Yeo and JFH will be prime candidates for a rest late in the
game, while I also think the workload may be well down if the Cowboys put a
score on the Cowboys.
The damage will likely be done on the edges, especially with
Api Koroisau out, and if there are stoppages due to tries it will impact the
Don’t get me wrong, Mansour could go big against his flimsy opposition. But he’s also a chance at an early shower, so I’d prefer lock in To’o with more certainty on going the distance.
Even if he were to start, I’m concerned JT won’t play his
regular 65+ minutes and therefore won’t match his value of $16k unless he jags
some attacking stats.
He’s expected to be named on the bench come kick off which
will make it an easy decision to put a line through him.
The Cowboys are clear of the wooden spoon and won’t make the
eight, so why risk him in big game time?
With Koroisau out, Kenny gets a start. He should see big
minutes and looks like a bargain at just under $11k. While Tyrone May is an
option to steal time, you’d think Cleary would take this opportunity to get 80
minutes under Kenny’s belt prior to finals as reserve hooker.
This is based on the current team that has Jensen starting.
Taumalolo may return at lock, pushing Francis Molo to prop and Jensen to the
If Jensen does start as named he’s very cheap and should
exceed his $7,910 price tag.
Brent Naden and Brian To’o
I’ve gone with this pair as they’re both likely to play
their 80 minutes without much risk of a rest.
Draftstars award try-assists for the last touch, so hopefully Cleary does all the work on the inside to create space for Naden to tip to To’o for a few tries.
This is basically relaying what was said for Moses, but
Gutho will be on the end of every backline movement and linebreak and should produce
the goods at a very affordable $10,820.
Fergo has broken his season try-scoring duck and perhaps the
floodgates can open? I like him over Sivo purely because he’s on Moses’ edge
which will see far more ball than that of Jai Field’s left side.
Gutho and Fergo
Moses will create space against a back-pedalling Brisbane defensive line, find a sweeping Gutho who cuts to Fergo to score. Hopefully…
