Round 14 Dream Teams

Round 14 Team of the Week

A new name for our Player of the Week which I’m excited about. Connor Watson played majority of the game at hooker and while most comps do not allow backs to score workhorses, he completed the requirements in this game with 48 involvements. His 15 points in this game takes his season total to 16 so it’s easy to see that he has plenty of talent but just isn’t getting the game time. Bravo to our designer Scott on this caricature too. It’s outstanding!

There were three players who finished just behind Watson with 14 points each. The first is Matt Moylan who tore apart the Raiders on Saturday night in Bathurst. He broke my heart and stole my cat too. It was too easy for him as he scored an easy try, two try assists, a line break, three line break assists and just snuck over the line for a metre eater.

The amazing try scoring streak of Felise Kaufusi continued against the Sharks. Scoring his second double for the year and sixth try in total for the year it looked a little too easy as he ran off Billy Slater to score the winning try. Along with a workhorse lite and two line breaks, he’s now on 78 points for the season and is well entrenched in the Dream Team. The fact he can play prop too has made him invaluable.

Queensland reject Aidan Guerra has left his run a little too late to get picked for Origin but it looks like he’s picked himself up a very tidy contract in Newcastle. It was Guerra’s first ever career double try scoring effort and his highest ever individual NRLCEO score. He propped that score up with his ninth workhorse of the year.

Lastly, just loving the resurgence of the Uate Party too!

Overall Dream Team

 

Jordan Rapana has been our NRLCEO MVP for six out of the 14 rounds so far this year and he is streaking ahead. Scoring his 50th career NRL try in just his 66th game over the weekend, his battle with Josh Mansour was a classic. He is now 18 points ahead of his closest rival in Paul Gallen.

Manly star Dylan Walker has nudged his way into the Dream Team ahead of Tim Lafai by putting Uate over for another couple of tries. His all round performance this year includes 7 tries, 8 try assists, 9 line breaks, 4 line break assists and 10 metre eaters.

Storm workhorses Cameron Smith and Felise Kaufusi both find themselves back in the Dream Team after a couple of weeks out.
