Welcome back to the 2021 SuperCoach season weekly point of difference (POD) column, wow is it shaping up to be a good one.
Round 1 has established that you really do get what you pay for with premium fullbacks and halfbacks nowadays in SuperCoach, and some guys are impossible to anti-POD if you want to take home the overall honours.
In my PODs article this season, I will try to capture who I think are the highest upside players while keeping the core structure of your team intact for the bye rounds and State of Origin.
This list will include players who are around 10% or less overall ownership:

Arrow looked to be playing extremely Supercoach conducive footy in his 70 points from 48 minutes with just base and base attack.
It wouldn’t surprise me to see Arrow quickly moved into the starting line-up over the next few rounds, and if he can secure 55-60 minutes then it’s safe to say that he is heavily under-priced at his current $450k.
If Jai continues to run across the field busting tackles and linking up with Cameron Murray in some offload plays then I can’t see how he doesn’t become a must-have as we move forward in the season.
I had to add TPJ to this list, though a shout out must go to Joe Tapine who did actually outscore TPJ for the round.
An insane 79 points in 38 minutes for TPJ consisted of seven efficient offloads.
I’ve always been a fan of the TPJ train to hop on and off of at certain stages of the season, even if the Broncos aren’t winning games this guy is still tackle busting and offloading the ball which is pure SuperCoach gold for a dual FRF/2RF player.
If TPJ’s minutes increase over the opening rounds I will probably jump on, however he is fine to give another week or two before buying as of right now.
