Realistically, Fifita isn’t an option as it looks as though his body is slowing him up big time.
However, for the sake of a bit of fun, let’s say he excels as a starter in the All Stars clash, offloads, gets decent minutes, looks fit and agile, then is named to start in Round 1 for the Sharks.
He averaged 45PPG in 34MPG at a monster 1.33PPM last season.
In the four seasons prior he averaged 60, 68, 64 and 72PPG.
He’s a SuperCoach gun and was churning out big numbers not long ago.
*ALL STARS UPDATE:
Fifi was the big talking point out of the game from a SuperCoach perspective. He appeared more agile than last season where he was clearly hampered by injury.
He got through 55 minutes which was a terrific sign, scoring 60 SuperCoach points in the process. He had 12 runs, 29 tackles, four tackle breaks and three offloads.
That’s getting back to Fifita of old, so if he looks fit and healthy in the Sharks trial then starts in Round 1 he could be a huge play at $398,600.
*Rating based on playing off the bench in Round 1, would rise to a 6/10 if starting and impressing in another trial.

Jack Williams $313,900 // 2RF // 2020 Ave: 35.4 // Rd 1 buy rating: 3/10
Williams started at lock last season and underwhelmed with his SuperCoach output.
He averaged 41MPG last season with 0.88PPM and 34BPG.
He is capable in attack which can lead to some handy scoring, but realistically he needs to start and play 60+ minutes to warrant eyeing off as a mid-range cow.
Oh Moyza, please stay fit! At least until owners make our cash…
He played just eight games last season and 11 in 2019. The lack of footy means he’s dirt cheap at just over $250k.
Go back a few years when stringing a decent amount of games together and the numbers are good.
His SuperCoach averages from 2016-18 were 63, 59 and 52PPG.
One issue I see with his move into the halves is that the fullback (probably Kennedy), will run the sweep line out back of the attacking plays and therefore throw the final pass for the majority of try-assists.
This could hurt Moylan who would only get the 4 point try contribution.
If he can produce an average of 50PPG that’d net him $200k in profit.
I really like him for Round 1 at the price, but whether or not I start with him in my 17 is another question!
Nikora should start in the back-row, but Talakai will put up a fight for the spot if fit.
He’s one I see as being significantly impacted by SJ’s absence as they have such a wonderful combination.
His output isn’t good enough for a back-rower at over $500k, scoring at just 0.72PPM and 0.75PPM across the past two seasons.
His 42BPG isn’t great considering he played max minutes the past two years, so I can’t really see him improving too significantly until SJ comes back and unlocks his attacking threat to a greater degree.
