What We Learnt - Storm vs Sea Eagles

Our early Sunday game for Round 21 was always going to be all about one man. Cameron Smith became just the 3rd player to participate in 350 NRL matches and he did not shirk his responsibilities.

Smith lead the scoring with four try assists, 6 goals, 31 tackles plus a couple of other attack stats to finish on 88*. If there was any doubt about Smith's mantle as 'Rule number 1' for NRL Fantasy players, it has been quashed well and truly with a mind boggling performance from CS9. He ran the team just like we've come to expect and whenever the Storm were on attack, #CAM350 was there to take advantage of a weak Manly side which finished on 69 missed tackles. 69!!

As far as other scores go;

The other Cameron, Munster, finished on 59*. 9 tackle busts and an offload will have to be some consolation for Munster owners, as he came close to scoring at least 3 times but couldn't quite cross the line.

Joe Stimson was handed another start and duly delivered with a try on his way to 58* points. He's definitely not a target for this season but once Tohu Harris departs, he could be an undervalued buy for 2018.

Curtis Scott had a quiet second half and ended the game on 41* points. This was his second game in an unfamiliar left centre position but he performed admirably. He should continue to grow through this year and is definitely a valid option to fill a spot in your 17 for the remainder of the season.

Martin Taupau had somewhat of a resurgence with 49* points in 44 minutes. He made 5 tackle busts and 3 offloads to get him back to being in the conversation for a spot in your side after a few less than stellar performances.

DCE and the Trbojevic Bros Inc were a major let down with Cherry-Evans finishing on 25* after contributing 9 of the aforementioned missed tackles. He wont suffer the same treatment every week and is someone you shouldn't hesitate to play for the remainder of the season, unless you have Cleary, Pearce and a host of bench forwards to play in his stead. Jake Trbojevic scored 40* with no attacking stats other than run metres. He wont have to play the Storm every week so you can expect his scores to increase for the remainder of the season. The same could be said for brother Tom, who was shut down by Melbourne. Despite a try-assist, he could only provide 23* points for his owners.

What We Learnt - Warriors vs Sharks

Sharks win 26-12. That game was rather disappointing. As a Warriors fan, I'm not disappointed in their performance. I've come to expect it. But the way they rolled over in the last 20 minutes was pathetic. The more disappointing aspects of the match were the fantasy scores.

Bodene Thompson had a 33 point first half and scored a try to start the second stanza before suffering a shoulder injury. He still managed to top the scoring with 52* points from only 58 minutes. From reports, there was a 'crack'ing sound which could spell season over. All his owners will be severely disappointed as Thompson has been a strong POD over the last 6 weeks, averaging over 56.

Paul Gallen was the only other popular player to hit 50* points. Nothing special from the Sharks skipper, 30 tackles, 150+ metres and four offloads. Stock standard but still disappointing.

After that there was a run of very poor scores.

Simon Mannering's run of great scores came to a screeching halt with only 48*.

Andrew Fifita
continued his run of rather disappointing scores with 39*. That makes 6 games in a row since he's hit 60. Since the start of Oranges he's been a bum. The problem with Fifita is his potential to go out on any given week and score 100+. This is why you must hold and continue to play.


Roger Tuivasa-Sheck had a 9 point second half and finished on 38*. I suppose this could be considered a pass mark but it proves that he needs tries to really be considered a gun at WFB.

In fact the only surprising score was Fa'amanu Brown with 39*. He scored a first half try before going off in the 60th minute with a nasty head knock courtesy of Sam Lisone's knee. I would say 99.99% of Brown's owners would have had him riding the pine but if you were un(?)fortunate enough to have to play him **cough cough** Matthew Duggan **cough cough**, 39 points is a god send.

*All scores were correct at the time of writing and do not include updates.

What We Learnt - Tigers vs Eels

The Parramatta Eels have beaten the Wests Tigers at ANZ Stadium, requiring a late field goal from Corey Norman to take a 17-16 win and solidify their position in the top 8 on the NRL ladder.

James Tedesco scored his FIRST TRY SINCE ROUND ONE (!) and added 9 tackle breaks to lead the scoring with 61* points. It was always a matter of when and not if, Tedesco got back on the score sheet and with a price tag of around $440,000 next week looks the goods for the run home. He's a popular option with almost 25% ownership but you can definitely count on him to produce when it matters.

Nathan Brown continued a strong run of form with 59* to bring his 5 round average to 59.8. He's a solid workhorse and also has a good offload which adds to his appeal. If you're a Burgess owner and concerned about his availability, Brown is a great trade target as the Eels continue their push to the finals. They'll need all his metres and tackles if they want to make a run at the top 4.

For anyone that had the faith, or didn't have a choice, Semi Radradra returned a great score of 52*. He was very involved tonight and finished with one try, a try assist and 3 line breaks along with 202 metres. As is always the problem with the flying Fijian, he has his good and his bad weeks. The Eels face a reasonably easy schedule for the remainder of the regular season but start with a game against the 3rd ranked Broncos next week. He's definitely a match up based play but against the weaker teams he can run riot.

Corey Norman had a whole host of attacking stats but could still only return a score of 36*, thanks largely to a late line break. There were high hopes on Norman continuing his early season form alongside Mitchell Moses, however he hasn't topped 43 points since round 9 and averages just 40.2 with Moses in the team. In all likelihood, Norman owners won't have much of a choice but to hold and hope he turns it around.

Clint Gutherson owners will be nervously awaiting reports of a possible injury that befell him towards the end of the match. I am one such person and while I am happy with his 46* from tonights match, an injury will not be such fantastic news. He's great fun to watch and is very hungry for the ball. He's very capable of very large scores and averages 49.2 in his last 5 matches. If he does succumb to injury, I can't imagine it will be a long term one. Here's hoping you have some cover.

What We Learnt - Dragons vs Sea Eagles

Game of two halves... almost.
The Dragons blew the Sea-Eagles off the park at WIN Stadium in a high scoring affair. The St George-Illawaara team scored 9 tries to Manlys 4 in what can only be described as a flip-flopping affair.
The Dragons held a 30-0 half time lead thanks to tries to Nightingale, Lafai, Aitken, Host and Widdop.
With Manly desperate to hit back, Dylan Walker got them off to a good start by dotting down in the 42nd minute. 
What followed can only be described as mind boggling. The Dragons were in possession inside the Manly 20 when a dust up betwen Jack de Belin and Darcy Lussick resulted in the former throwing a punch and being binned. 
De Belin can also count himself lucky as it looked to some like he struck out with an elbow but the fact he was holding the ball with the same arm may save him from further scrutiny.
Manly then went on the attack, scoring 3 tries in the 10 minutes that Lussick was off the field to little brother Joey Lussick, Akuila Uate and Jake Trbojevic which closed the game up at 30-22.
As soon as Darcy returned to the field, the Dragons scored through Paul Vaughan which kick started another run of points as the game finished 52-22.

Star of the future, or now.

With the news that Josh Dugan would miss the game, Matt Dufty finally got his chance at fullback and was one of the Dragons best. He finished on 82* points with 11 tackle busts, 194 running metres, two try assists and capped it off with the final try of the game. Why this kid has been held back for so long beats me and the Dragons faithful will hope he can retain his spot at the back. With Euan Aitken going down after scoring his second try, perhaps Josh Dugan can return into the centres? We'll have to wait and see but the fact of the matter is, The Dragons looked a lot more electric with Dufty in the side.

Trbojevic Bros Inc roll on
Jake and Tom continue to shine in the Manly team with Jake nabbing a try for the second game in a row and finishing on 72* points. With Sam Burgess possibly missing time on the run home, Jake will be a popular target and at under 10% ownership could provide a nice alternative to the mainstays in the forwards. Tom couldn't get on the scoreboard today but he did turn provider for one try and saved another, finishing on 49*. He had a very quiet game so to still produce a score of that level is fantastic news for all his owners. Another potential Burgess trade target with Curtis Scott and Tyrell Fuimaono both disappointing this week.


Guns are guns for a reason
And the reason is clear. Average 50 or more and you'll be considered for a season ending spot in a lot of teams. The usual suspects Jack de Belin (60*) and Paul Vaughan (56*) continued to provide as they have all season. JdB managed 76 minutes today with Joel Thompson sidelined in the warm up and Packer being pulled early after some dismal defending led to the Manly fight back. Vaughan scored a try so his score may disappoint some of his owners but with a couple of less than ideal scores recently, I'd be laughing all the way to the bank.


And guns will soon no longer be guns...
Cameron McInnes and Martin Taupau will count themselves lucky that everyone is running low on trades but I have no doubt they will still find themselves in the shop window for a number of teams this week following two very disappointing scores of 34* and 33* respectively. McInnes is notorious for relying on tackle counts and with the Dragons having the majority of possession, he only managed to make 39 today. Combine that with 1 missed tackle, 1 error and 1 penalty conceded and McInnes was never in the hunt for a top score. With his running metres drying up (he hasn't run for more than 20 metres since round 15) he will be a hard hold, but with Cameron Smith possible missing some time, there aren't really any better options. Taupau started the game with some strong runs and when he went off after his first stint of 25 minutes, was on 28 points. Unfortunately, he must have watched what Andrew Fifita did on Friday night as his second 22 minute stint returned just 5 points. With 10 minutes remaining he was actually on less than his half time score. Taupau has been rather disappointing of late, with two sub-35 scores in his last 4 games. I'm sure if there were more trades floating around, he'd be a goner.

What We Learnt - Sharks vs Rabbitohs

Sharks put the Rabbits back in their Sh*tty burrow.
By The Big Tree

Oh Crikey!

Sorry for ever doubting you oh Fantasy god Angus Crichton! Playing through his apparent foot fracture Crikey pumps out a beastly 86* to appease all his wary owners. A few sells this week, let's hope those coaches know what they're doing. 

No sign of Gal slowing down! 

Still powered by peptides? Gallen tops the metres gained column once again, not quite enough extras such as OLs and TBs to return another gun score. How does the old bull keep doing it?! 49* will have to do this week.

Sammy Boyle is running dry.

38* why oh why! Midweek Facebook group speculation that Sam Burgess was carrying a neck injury likened to that of his Pommy counterpart James Graham had a few worried. Whether this be true or absolutely horrifying scenes in the 74th minute as Surgess leaves the field with what looks like rib cartilage issues. Those Zero Traders won't sleep well. 

Fui/Scott Saga - Advantage Gamblers

Another storyline all week has been whether to run Fuimaono at CTR, or gamble on Scott being a late call up and risk an AE. A paltry 24* from Fuimaono tonight leaves the advantage with the gamblers as we saw CMat score 29 who a lot were saying could be their AE should Scott not make the 17. We wait. 

Flatline Fifita.

With a monstrous 36 in his first stint Fifita owners were salivating at the prospect of him coming back and ripping in. In the 2nd half we witness a classic case of what goes up must come down as he manages a gross 11 in his second. 47*. 


Oh, and, Reynolds played well for a guy with a broken thumb....

What We Learnt - Broncos vs Bulldogs

Magical McCullough, Mighty Moga

The Brisbane Broncos put the Canterbury Bulldogs to the sword at Suncorp Stadium tonight as they restricted the Sydney-siders to just one try in each half, winning 42-12. 

Andrew McCullough got off to a flyer making a bunch of tackles before making a break up the middle and laying on a try to Tautau Moga. It wasn't until the 53rd minute that the clock finally overtook McCullough's score. The second half was a bit of a Bronco's try-fest of which McCullough wasn't too involved so his score suffered as the Brisbanites had very little defence to do. He would finish on 61* points that included only 32 tackles which is his second lowest tackle count of the season (31 tackles in 58 minutes in round 11). He's a perfect sidekick to Cameron Smith for the remainder of the season.

Moga also had a solid game, scoring the first Bronco's try and making a big break which lead to 49* points. Anyone that held him will be very thankful for his efforts the last two weeks. I, myself was thinking I was stuck with him for the remainder of the season but if he continues to play like tonight I won't be too displeased.

James Roberts scored a second half double around some tiring Bulldogs defense to bump his score up to 54*. He'll be priced around $370k next week and if has a strong run home, could be slightly undervalued for anyone looking for a POD for the run home (6.55% owned).

Kodi Nikorima enjoyed his switch to fullback and scored a try, ran for 140 metres and had 5 tackle busts to be rewarded with 47* points. With Darius Boyd likely to return next week, it is likely that Nikorima be relegated to the bench (at best) for the remainder of the season. But don't be surprised if Bennett shakes things up with Anthony Milford (31*) and Ben Hunt (35*) both having reasonably quiet games.

Aiden Tolman was subjected to some rather low minutes (56) this week and as such only managed 45* points. Obviously it's still a great PPM so if he can get another bump in games that the Bulldogs have a chance, he should get back to some decent scoring.

Moses Mbye was another to come under the spotlight in recent times with three 57+ scores in a row but he returned a very disappointing 25* to anyone that bought him this week.

One score I completely missed on the first pass was Josh McGuire's highly disappointing 24*. Let us also not forget that this included a try. McGuire made a surprisingly low 12 tackles and missed 3 in 49 minutes which is very very low. I know a few people that had to trade Trent Merrin were targetting him as someone who could produce some decent scores for a cheaper price tag. Unfortunately, McGuire has started the run home very poorly.

RFS Bosses: Round 20

It is over. And it seems fitting that a popular, but not overwhelmingly so, player would put in the best fantasy effort we have ever seen. Nathan Cleary’s 126 was a phenomenal performance. A three try, two try assist, two line break, one line break assist was beefed up by 10 points from goals and another 24 from kicking metres. It was an out of this world performance.

We’re going to cover a bit on the bye period but first we’ll cover the usual stuff on the top 5000.

The top 5,000

First the weekly average scores at various ranking intervals:

           991

Top 100

           959

Top 500

Top 4,000

           877

Top 4,500

           873

Top 5,000

           870

It is easy to forget that this was a bye round. Most people easily fielded a decent 17 and that led to some massive scores. It is probably an early sign of things to come as the next three or four weeks are likely to be the biggest scoring rounds of the year as people round out their final sides, and before injuries kick in.

The Top 18 teams are currently separated by less than 180 points while the top 7 are split by less than 75 points. It is really unusual that there would be so many teams still in the running. Last season the top 7 sides were separated by 154 points and the top 18 by 290 points, while in 2015 the top 7 were split by 146 points and the top 18 by 233. We don’t know how many trades everyone has but this could be a very interesting end to the season.

Bosses’ Performances

The Bosses averaged 918 points but there was a bit of a split with four Bosses scoring over 1k, with a high of 1,035, while another four Bosses scored less than 850 and one of those managed just 762.

Here’s where the Bosses are ranked:

No change here although there were a couple of Bosses who moved up into the top 500 and should be in for a strong run home.

Captain choices

With a lot of people having a surplus of players there were only two loopholes this week. One Boss looped Gallen and the other looped de Belin. The rest of the captains were Taumalolo (6), Mannering (3), Gallen (2), Trbojevic (1) and Taupau (1).

The Bye Rounds

13 of the 15 Bosses improved their position during the bye period and both of the Bosses that didn’t improve lost less than 50 places. But there were two stand out Bosses that scored over 300 points more than the next best Boss. These two Bosses had a lot of volume (93 and 95 players) but they also had a lot of quality with the 2nd and 4th best average per player among the Bosses. Obviously quantity and quality is best.

So, even the teams that weren’t that great managed to increase their ranks by quite a bit. The teams that were strong managed to make some huge gains, this really illustrates the potential gains from some planning (and a bit of good fortune) during this time of the year.

It is interesting to note that the team that used the most number of trades was well down the list. Trades isn’t really a telling factor because we aren’t considering the trades in the weeks leading up to the byes. In this case those 18 trades still only got to 82 players, that’s a combo of low numbers coming in but also a bit of bad luck with injuries and a little bit of poor trading.

The average scoring by the Bosses was up almost 100 points compared to last year which is almost entirely due to there being 86.6 players this year compared to 85 last year (the average per player was 51.49 this year and 51.34 last year). Last year the average rank improvement was 43% compared to 67% this year. Finally, the gap between the top and bottom teams widened this year. This year the top team scored 4,987 and the bottom team scored 3,748, last year the top team scored 4,723 and the bottom team 3,823.

Trades

Four Bosses didn’t trade this week. All of them could field a 17 and probably felt they would hold off adding final pieces until this week. Two Bosses traded once and the rest used both trades.

Here’s the trades remaining for all the Bosses:

With players like SJ, Merrin and Reynolds dropping this week it could be an ominous sign of the post Origin injury carnage we experienced a couple of seasons ago are back.

The only surprising thing here is Crichton but it is important to remember that Crichton was at his peak value and is almost certain not going to return the level of points his price commands. If trading him now allows you to get a similar level of player for a lot less while also grabbing a gun in another spot it is a defensible move. We’ll see how it plays out though.

Nothing out of the ordinary there.

Composite Team

The composite team scored 997 which in part made up for a terrible week in round 18. It has moved back inside the top 1k.

 

This side has a real problem that can come from just trying to maintain the popular players in other people’s teams. It has 17 decent players (though I’d be concerned about Fuimaono’s minutes to rely on him) but too many of those players are WFBs and there is a lack of DPP flexibility to cover spots. Grabbing a second HOK will be important. At the moment the second most popular HOK is Andrew McCullough although I wonder if CS9 will come back into a few teams. There is also a need for a HLF replacement for Shaun Johnson and I might do this by moving Munster to HLF and grabbing Tom Trbojevic to play CTR. Trbojevic is only in five teams but with Fuimaono trending downwards and Scott not picked (quietly I think his scoring will probably dry up anyway – he’s not Mark friggin Gasnier!) Trbojevic might be a safe option at CTR.

Q & A With The Renegade: Round 20

Well with the Byes over and done with, injuries starting to creep in it’s now we find out who are the Men and who are the mice. Last week I managed a healthy 1027 which lifted me to a rank of 219. With 4 trades remaining things are looking good. With people running out of trades the questions tend to dry up a little, so my articles will too. I will fill in popular questions in case people care or have trades left.

I am getting Pearce and Smith in the next 2 weeks, who do I get first? Pearce with a break even of 70 against the Knights or Smith after a week off.  Paul Messell

I would lean towards Smith he is likely to be fresh, it also means you can set and forget your captain and will probably get 70 (since I decided not to get him). If you’re wondering about my logic, It is that I got AM9 last week so as long as CS9 doesn’t outscore AM9 by more than 52 then I made the right call.

Watson/Cornish/Lino... which one for cash out for the run home?  Paul Messell

None- at this time of the season why would you want one of these? Your team can’t suck that bad you have to play them. You’re not trying to make cash. You may get stuck with a AE if things go wrong. Get Bucky Fizz or Willy Hypocrite or anyone that is 138k and won’t play.

J. Wallace keep or trade this week?  Junior Thompson

I would be tempted to run until seasons end. He’s averaging 46 in a weak position. In other positions it may be more valuable to upgrade i.e. centre or wing. If you are going to, though, you might as well do it this week. I only hope you are getting Fifita as he is the only worthy candidate.

Heard anything about Curtis Scott?  Richard Mckernan

It will be a game time decision. He wasn’t named in the Storms feeder team. I know our old mate and Fantasy rookie Butters believes he has the scoop and he is not in my team so wouldn’t mind if he’s a no show, but stay by your device to make a late change.

Will Issac Luke take a more leading role with SJ gone?  Mark Affleck

Yes, he will do goal kicking. If you are thinking of bringing him in for the remainder of the season you have issues.

Is trading either RTS / Edwards and Fuimaono for Teddy and Turbo leaving Jayne too sideways? Leaves me with 2 trades for the rest of the year and about 150ishk in the bank.  Shazial Sheikh

It is a little bit. However at this part of the season it’s about putting your best players you can in. Your team must be stacked if this is your worst problem. The Fui trade for TTurbo is golden though.

Cleary, DCE, Teddy or equivalent value 2RF for SJ's spot. Will play in my 17 each week. No extra cash or trades available.  Toby Williamson

I would probably lean towards Cleary, gets his points from KM and goal kicking. As we saw this week also has a few other strings that can be played to go big. I also assume he will provide a little cover for you as well.

I have Reynolds, Norman, DCE and SJ in my halves. Should I trade SJ or hold him? Brenton James Head

It’s a lot of coin to keep sitting for a minimum of 4 weeks, I would look to trade but maybe look to get that cash into another position as you look ok at half. 

 

Thanks for all the questions, don’t forget if you have used all your trades to enter the RD 20 challenge. Will you try and make cash or loop every week? Let’s go for another 1K this week!
