NRL Fantasy

Now that was a game fantasy coaches can rejoice.Sam Burgess and Angus Crichton both showed why they will be in a lot of teams come seasons end with 75 and 74 points respectively. I think the best thing from both of those scores is that neither of them had any attacking stats other than tackle breaks (5 a piece) ad…
Geez, where do I begin. That was a good game as far as rugby league is concerned but not so much for fantasy coaches.If, for some strange reason you own Michael Gordon, Daniel Tupou, Latrell Mitchell or Matt Frawley, chances are you're going to be disappointed.The Roosters and Bulldogs both play two of the three major bye rounds. If you're…
The Newcastle Knights held a team scoreless in the first half for the first time since 2014 but it wasn't enough as the Panthers once again came back in the second stanza to record a win.There was a lot to like about the Knights today and the Feeney - Lamb halves combination seems to be growing nicely but the lack…

McCullough injured Andrew McCullough copped a scary blow to the head when he got into a bad position tackling Kyle Lovett in the 58th minute. He was clearly knocked out but it also looked like he may have injured his neck either hitting Lovett or hitting the ground or both. For fantasy coaches not only do they have to wear…
Fire breathing forwards The Dragons’ outside backs might have had a field day but it is the middle forwards that earn them the right to attack wide. The Dragons middle forwards lead by Paul Vaughan and Jack de Belin is one of the best groups in the NRL. Tonight the group of Vaughan, de Belin, Packer and Sele combined to…
What are they watching? I’m normally a pretty rationale defender of the stats guys, unless you are scoring every player, in every game, you don’t really know whether they are being consistent or not. We also don’t know how they define certain stat categories. So, instead you focus on your own players and complain about them, that’s ascertainment bias. But,…
Every week, the Renegades Team get together over a chicken parma and an ice cold beer to help out a fellow Renegade with their team. The aim is not necessarily to prescribe a number of trades. Rather, we document the process of improving a team, explaining our logic and rationale, so that the coach and readers can apply the tools…
Well apologies for my mid-season hiatus, I wish it was due to being on a tropical beach somewhere with no internet. Truth be told I was overworked helping some people out away from home without a laptop. Luckily for you guys though I still managed to see all games and keep my finger on the pulse. Not only that but…
In the classic 1990 gangster movie Goodfellas there’s a character called Spider. He’s a lackie who gets shot in the foot by Tommy for a misunderstanding around Tommy’s drink. A bit later Spider is back with a limp and when Tommy starts busting his balls Spider wrongly decides he needs to save some face and talks back to Tommy. That…

What we learnt: Roosters v Eels Check out the action from Allianz Stadium. 1. Roosters monster the Eels The Roosters have the players (and the resources) to be a regular top four side.

What we learnt: Storm v Titans Check out the action from Melbourne 1. Titans pip the Storm If competition points in the NRL were awarded for displays of courage, the Titans would be topping the table by some distance.

After being treated to a high quality game between two good teams earlier in the evening this game was a bit of a chore. These are two teams that will miss the eight and playing in drizzly, slippery conditions it wasn’t much of a performance. That wasn’t helped by the Tigers who ran up the white flag pretty early on…
