HOOKER

Jazz Tevaga

Tevaga’s had a change of coach in 2021 and I’m hoping it will result in more minutes for this PPM beast!

Jacob Liddle

After a tough few years with injury, hopefully Liddle evolves into a nice cash cow if given the starting role at the Tigers.

The entire Cam Smith situation will impact this, particularly with how it could affect Harry Grant and whether Brandon Smith eats into Grant’s minutes.

FRONT-ROW

Tino Fa’asuamaleaui

Hopefully the Titans’ major signing, equals major minutes, which equals major points.

Ben Murdoch-Masila

His YouTube highlights from his time in the Super League look extremely promising. Hopefully he snares a starting edge role at the Warriors and can benefit from a softish early draw and make some cash while scoring well.

Ryan James

James starts the season massively under-priced after his horror knee injury. The Raiders have strong depth in their pack, so watching their trials will be vital to see his minutes and if he can snare a starting role or even good time off the bench.

Stefano Utoikamanu

He’s a big signing for the Tigers, hopefully this results in decent minutes that’ll make him a strong cash cow.

SECOND-ROW

Angus Crichton

Crichton will benefit from Cordner’s injury, so hopefully he turns into a consistent 80 minute edge player. He also has a soft draw to start the season and will capitalise on this.

Jason Taumalolo

A proven gun, hopefully he stays injury free and benefits from the nice early season draw.

Ryan Matterson

Matterson was ultra-consistent last season, hopefully he can avoid anymore head knocks in 2021.

David Fifita

Fifita has a massive ceiling with his attacking stats and is hopefully the focal point of the Titans’ attack.

Jordan Riki

There’s lot of news around that he may jag a starting edge spot at the Broncos, keep an eye out as he’d be a strong buy.

Shawn Blore

Same as above with Riki.

HALFBACK

Nathan Cleary

He’s the best SuperCoach halfback in the game.

Daly Cherry-Evans

Hopefully he gets the goal-kicking duties to add to his already strong attacking upside.

5/8

Connor Watson

Watson is a close watch to see if he indeed gets the lock role at the Knights with Barnett switching to the edge and Fitzgibbon to play from the bench. Monitor the pre-season trials, if he does start he’d be massively under-priced.

Josh Schuster

Some reports suggest he may get a shot at the 5/8 role with Kieran Foran to play hooker, watch closely in the pre-season.

CENTRE-WING

Charlie Staines

Hopefully he’s the beneficiary of a red-hot Panthers attack, meaning there’s plenty of money to be made.

David Fusitu’a

The Warriors outside back is very cheap and hopefully can make cash before upgrading.

Bailey Simonsson

He’s bottom dollar, so hopefully he scores the Raiders vacant wing spot as there’d be a good amount of cash to be made if so.

Daine Laurie

Another close watch to see if he snags the fullback role at the Tigers where he’d make good cash.

Tesi Niu

Yet another close watch to see if he gets Kotoni Staggs’ centre spot where he’d be a decent cash cow.

Haze Dunster / Joseph Suaalii

Both are outside chances of making their respective teams, continue to monitor.

FULLBACK

James Tedesco

Tedesco is vital with the Roosters soft draw to begin the season and you could be left behind if you go without as we found out last year. Say no more, he’s a SuperCoach gun!

Tom Trbojevic

Injury plagued his 2020 season, so there’s always the big risk with him. He’s under-priced, so hopefully with a clean bill of health he hits the ground running to begin the season.
