We all know the Kiwi winger has a stunning ability to sniff out a try. At a bargain price I’ll be hoping he does so early on in the year to make some money, outside of Round 3 of course…
Saab will start for Manly and is very cheap, with a tough draw ahead for Manly I won’t play him in my starting team.
It was a tough start to young Tesi’s career in the NRL, but he clearly has plenty of talent about him. If Brisbane can find improvement from last season, he should be able to capitalise on plenty of extra attacking opportunities on a fast Suncorp Stadium surface.
Brown is such a classy footballer and will only go from strength-to-strength as his career progresses. I’ve avoided some big name 5/8s to get him in, but I’m confident he won’t let me down.
Hoy gets a crack at Kalyn Ponga’s fullback role to start the year. It’s a shame for my SuperCoach side he’s not expected to goal-kick, but hopefully he does enough damage with ball in hand to make some cash.
Morgs has had a tough run of injuries in recent years, hence why he’s so cheap in Round 1. He’s such a quality footballer as we’ve seen time and time again. The Cowboys will improve significantly if he stays fit, as will my SuperCoach side.
Matterson is ultra-consistent and is playing in a strong Eels side. As we saw last year, he’s a lock in for 60-70+ points each week.
Jake is such a hard-worker which obviously lends itself to SuperCoach scoring. Add in a few attacking stats and you’re onto a winner.
Riki starts at Brisbane and looks like a player with a big future. At that $277k price he’s straight into my side.
Host has won the edge spot at the Rabbitohs and is very cheap. I’m not sure what his game time will be like with Jai Arrow on the bench, but hopefully he finds the odd try or two running off Cody Walker before being upgraded to a gun.
Fuimaono will start at lock for the Dragons, and while I have no idea what sort of minutes he’ll play, hopefully it’s enough to score well.
Blore is out for a few rounds, but he’s very cheap and looks a promising talent on what we’ve seen in a short sample size.
