Quantium data analysis: True player ownership stats, Round 21

Actuary Adam Driussi provides player ownership breakdowns to allow you to differ your side from those atop the rankings.


Analysing the top 100,000 NRL Supercoach teams after Round 21

In the interests of time and getting the stats out, I will keep the commentary short this week.  With just 6 rounds to go trades in the run home may just prove invaluable – so use them wisely!

Let’s take a look at the ownership of each player after round 21.

Fullback (non-DPP)

The table below sets out the proportion of teams in the top 100, top 1,000, top 5,000, top 10,000, top 20,000 and top 100,000 that own each fullback.

One of the key decisions for Supercoaches this week is whether to bring in Latrell Mitchell or not.  That decision could make or break some Supercoaches seasons.


Not a huge amount of movement at CW last week.  The key move was a Ronaldo Mulitalo falling to 50% ownership amongst the top 1,000. 


Cameron Munster has increased from 41% ownership amongst the top 1,000 to 56%.  


The biggest change in ownership last week was at half back.  64% of the top 1,000 now own Nathan Cleary – up from 10% last week.

In terms of where the change came from:

  • Mitch Moses fell from 37% to 5%
  • Jahrome Hughes fell from 9% to 2%
  • Nicho Hynes fell from 100% to 93%
  • Shaun Johnson fell from 42% to 36%



Payne Haas has increased to 66% ownership amongst the top 1,000 teams.  The Warriors bye this week will cause many teams challenges at FRF.


Harry Grant is now owned by 86% of the top 1,000 teams – up from 79% last week. 

Round 21 captaincy selections

60% of the top 100 last week captained Nathan Cleary.  I’m amazed that 4% of the top 100 owned Cleary but didn’t captain him.  The 4% of teams who looped had James Tedesco as vice-captain.

Good luck to everyone in Round 22!  I’m about to fly to Bundaberg to cheer on the Bulldogs against the Dolphins.
