Round 21 Dream Teams

Round 21 Team of the Week

Big, bad, bustling Nathan Brown is our Player of the Week this week despite heading off injured with 12 minutes to go on the weekend. His 65 involvements netted him a Double Workhorse and his 205m netted him a Double Metre Eater for his troubles too. Adding two line breaks to his tally to show his ball handing skills and it tops off a great week for the reformed bad boy.

I was coming up against Cam Smith on the weekend and I needed a quiet game from him if I was a chance to retain my spot in the finals of my private league. Unfortunately for me, but fortunately for most he shone in his 350th game. He had a masterful display of four try assists, four line break assists and six goals. With 37 involvements he just fell short of a workhorse for his troubles but only one Storm player needed to cross 40 involvements as they smashed the Sea Eagles into submission.

 

Here is the rest of the Team of the Week:

  1. James Tedesco (11)
  2. Josh Addo-Carr (9)
  3. Kirsome Auva’a (12)
  4. Jarrod Croker (11)
  5. Kyle Feldt (8)
  6. Luke Keary (8)
  7. Mitch Moses (9)
  8. Paul Vaughan (11)
  9. Cameron Smith (12)
  10. Aaron Woods (9)
  11. Matt Gillett (12)
  12.  Jack De Belin (11)
  13. Nathan Brown (14)

 

 

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

The effervescent old man Paul Gallen is continuing to lead from the front and he now has a 18 point lead over Tom Trbojevic in second place. With just six rounds to go, it’s hard to see him missing out on the MVP title unless he gets injured. That of course means he will be the cover star of next year’s Season Guide. Smile Paul.

Only one new member of the Dream Team this week. Big Nathan Brown has bustled his way into the line-up after another quality Double Workhorse Performance and the Player of the Week Title. Although he has been playing at lock (and will likely only be a back rower next year on the site) he has been dual position since the early parts of the season.  The big fella has three DWH’s in the last four week’s and so hopefully the knock he took to the face doesn’t keep him out of this weekend’s fixtures. As you can tell, he’s one of mine.

 

Here is the Dream Team at the conclusion of Round 21 (with total points in brackets):

  1. Tom Trbojevic (119)
  2. Suliasi Vunivalu (95)
  3. Dylan Walker (104)
  4. James Roberts (114)
  5. Jordan Rapana (115)
  6. Gareth Widdop (100)
  7. Shaun Johnson (81)
  8. Paul Vaughan (113)
  9. Cameron McInnes (96)
  10. Nathan Brown (97) – NEW
  11. Jake Trbojevic (114)
  12. Felise Kaufusi (114)
  13. Paul Gallen (137) – 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).
