I’m not sure yet if I’ll sell Tedesco or Papenhuyzen, but I’m leaning towards Tedesco following another head knock that has now ruled him out.
I can’t help but feel this decision has the potential to be make-or-break for many SuperCoaches this season with both players so capable of going large.
Tedesco has regressed in recent weeks, while Papenhuyzen hasn’t put a foot wrong. The cash for the Storm fullback is tempting, but I’d hate not to own him when he returns with Melbourne’s form so far this season.
My concern is that the Roosters have key personnel changes in the spine. While I’m confident they have the talent to overcome key losses, it does take time to gain fluency in new combinations which may hinder Tedesco as we’ve seen recently.
Melbourne have most of their side on deck, and Harry Grant is obviously a huge inclusion that can only bolster Papenhuyzen’s stats with his phenomenal support play.
Kalyn Ponga would be the man to come in for either. He’s looked brilliant since missing the opening stages of the season and continues to develop his game which is frightening for rival clubs.
