Every week we will be looking at players still available in 65% of leagues. There may be better options still available in your league, but this article will be focusing on the players that are likely to be available in most leagues.
Best call last round – Haumole Olakau’atu – Haumole is getting better with every game he plays and Dez Hasler will have an interesting choice when Schuster and Sironen return from injury. Haumole is playing good enough to keep his spot but I also can’t say anything bad about Lawton on the other edge.
Worst call last round– Siosifa Talakai – Scoring only 35 points in 46 minutes, Talakai looked great with the ball in hand but was shocking in defence. Talakai could still be amazing but I can see the reliable Teig Wilton taking his spot or at the very least some serious minutes.
Hopefully you listened to Tim Williams who had the hot hand in trade targets last round, suggesting trading out Wallace, who scored only 31 points after four monster games, and trading in Murray for a massive 91 points.
After the NRL had the week off we could see some changes in today’s team lists with players coming back from injury and coaches reassessing their strategies.
Let’s have a look at some of the better options this round.
For the first time this year a Bulldog is at the top of the list and I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the Bulldogs have played their best football with him back at hooker.
He has scored 75 and 66 points in his two games since returning from injury and importantly playing 80 minutes.
He has always had good base and is worthy of a pickup when playing 80 minutes. In the past coaches have mucked around with his minutes but if he stays in this form, he will be a solid hooker choice for the Bulldogs and SuperCoach.
