Round 12 Dream Teams

Round 12 Team of the Week

The bye rounds are always tough and you can often get away with a good captaincy choice or just an outstanding choice from one player. If you had any of the player below then you likely went part way to winning.

The Player of the Week this round was Alex Johnston with 12 points. Although I didn’t watch this game and his second try was somewhat controversial. Watching the replay it shouldn’t have been paid, but that’s footy. Johnston is quietly working his way back up the try scoring ladder and this was his third double for 2017.

The next best NRLCEO scorer was Jordan Rapana who racked up a 23 minute double and looked likely to go over for a third on a number of other occasions. That means with one more round to go until the half way point he has just over half the number of tries he scored in 2016 (20).

 

Here is the rest of the Team of the Week:

  1. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck (8)
  2. Alex Johnston (12)
  3. James Roberts (10)
  4. Josh Hoffman (8)
  5. Jordan Rapana (11)
  6. Clint Gutherson (5)
  7. Shaun Johnson (10)
  8. Aiden Tolman (8)
  9. Jake Friend (9)
  10. Junior Paulo (6)
  11. Angus Crichton (9)
  12. Tepai Moeroa (9)
  13. Paul Gallen (9)

 

Points based on: Tries (4), Workhorses (4), Double Workhorses (8), Metre Eaters (2), Double Metre Eaters (4), Try Assists (2), Line Breaks (1), Line Break Assists (1), 40/20s (1), Field Goals (1), Sin Bins (-2) and Send Offs (-4).

 

Overall Dream Team

 

As we hit the Origin period many of the best and brightest players start to fade from the Dream Team as they miss three games. For the first time in ten years Paul Gallen will not be joining them and this gives him an even greater opportunity to remain as MVP. He was barely on 20 involvements at half time this week until he went into overdrive and ended up with a workhorse and a massive 237m effort for a double metre eater.

In second place, Jordan Rapana was back to his menacing best against the Roosters with two tries, a line break and a metre eater. He had 14 tackle breaks in this game and has 96 total for this year. He literally looks like he has spiders on him at times.

The only new new entry this week is the re-entry of Shaun Johnson. In his best performance of the year he reminded us of why the term Shaun Johnson Roller Coaster was invented. He was back on the way up with a try, two try assists, line break and line break assist.

 

Here is the Dream Team at the conclusion of Round 12 (with total points in brackets):

  1. Tom Trbojevic (75)
  2. Suliasi Vunivalu (64)
  3. James Roberts (75)
  4. Tim Lafai (72)
  5. Jordan Rapana (85)
  6. Cody Walker (59)
  7. Shaun Johnson (55) – NEW
  8. Paul Vaughan (71)
  9. Cameron McInnes (64)
  10. Ryan James (63)
  11. Sam Burgess (79)
  12. Jake Trbojevic (69)
  13. Paul Gallen (89) – MVP

 

Points based on: Tries (4), Workhorses (4), Double Workhorses (8), Metre Eaters (2), Double Metre Eaters (4), Try Assists (2), Line Breaks (1), Line Break Assists (1), 40/20s (1), Field Goals (1), Sin Bins (-2) and Send Offs (-4).
