Round 15 Dream Teams

Round 15 Team of the Week

Wow. What a performance from Angus Crichton! As noted in the top individual NRLCEO performances blog, his 24 point return is the second highest indvidual NRLCEO score of the last four years and one of the best of all time. A hat-trick is not very rare, but a hat-trick for a workhorse sure is! His three tries, four line breaks, workhorse and 214m double metre eater is the second best score of the year.

Not far behind him, and a young forward of the future to watch is the Sharks Kurt Capewell. So far he has filled in on the wing and in the centres for the Sharks but his future lies in the forwards. In the meantime expect him to score a few more tries this year.

I watched Clint Gutherson closer than ever this week as he was the one player chasing me down in my league. It ended in a draw, thanks for asking. The thing about Gutherson is that he is always heavily involved in the game no matter what position he plays. His two tries, line break and 238m double metre eater gave him 13 points for the game.

Lastly, shout out to my old mate Edrick Lee. The former Prince of Belcompton must have lost a lot of confidence since getting the flick from Canberra but his good form in reggies has paid off in first grade. He had a try, try assist, two line breaks and metre eater gave him 12 points – his highest ever NRLCEO score.

Overall Dream Team

Despite having the week off, Jordan Rapana is still the top of the pops in the MVP position with 111 points.

Tim Lafai has returned to the despite a very quiet week against the Eels. A line break, line break assist and metre eater was enough to jump above Dylan Walker and back into the centre position once again.

Another to return after a few weeks out is Cody Walker who took advantage of a quiet week for Gareth Widdop and jumped back into the five-eighth position. His 12 try assists for the season put him in third overall for try assists and his 12 line break assists puts him in fifth overall.

Mr Consistent Cam McInnes has found his way back into the Dream Team with a quiet workhorse performance. He is the seventh top workhorse for the year and the best hooker with 13 so far. His try scoring prowess has not been the same as last season, but there’s plenty of time as he fights for top spot with Cam Smith and Andrew McCullough.

Lastly, the man of the hour, Angus Crichton has blitzed his way into the Dream Team with the second highest NRLCEO score of the last four years! He now has seven tries for the season (second only behind Coen Hess for tries for fowards) and more incredibly ten workhorses. No one could have predicted his rise this season!
