Round 25 Dream Teams

Round 25 Team of the Week

It’s going to be a tough bon voyage when we say au revoir to Semi Radradra Turagasoli Waqavatu (as many names a tries!) as he heads off at the end of the year. You know what? I’ll still take a punt on him and draft him within the first ten rounds. He is that good. When the try scoring king from Suva scores his best ever score in an NRLCEO preliminary final you just know you have it in the bag. Scoring four tries for the second time this year he racked up 26 points in total.

22 points would usually get you the Player of the Round title. Not in this crazy round. Suliasi Vunivalu scored a hat-trick, try assist, four line breaks and a 246m double metre eater for 22 points in total. It caps off the most incredible rise to first grade with 45 tries in 43 games. Sure, he only got the ball down for two of them but in a world where penalty tries count too it all adds up on the NRLCEO scoreboard.

It was a winger haven on the weekend. Josh Addo-Carr couldn’t even get into the team at all with 19 points and Jordan Rapana had 15 which isn’t too bad either!

It’s worth mentioning Michael Lichaa’s return to form too. The former more than decent CEO hooker has fallen out of favour in Bankstown but if he lands at Newcastle he just might be worth a punt next year as your second hooker.

 

Here is the rest of the Team of the Week:

  1. Tom Trbojevic (12)
  2. Semi Radradra (26)
  3. Michael Jennings (11)
  4. David Fusitua (14)
  5. Suliasi Vunivalu (22)
  6. Cameron Munster (11)
  7. Michael Morgan (9)
  8. Aaron Woods (11)
  9. Michael Lichaa (16)
  10. Paul Vaughan (9)
  11. Mitch Barnett (9)
  12. Jake Trbojevic (10)
  13. David Klemmer (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

One round to go and it’s a two horse race for the overall MVP title. Paul Gallen is still in the box seat as a workhorse and metre eater should get him over the line but don’t rule out Tom Trbojevic making a late run. I’ve put a line through Jordan Rapana but a bronze isn’t bad if he can crack 150.

There is only one new entry this week as Suliasi Vunivalu jumped back in the Dream Team after his massive 22 point performance. Semi Radradra is now only five points behind him too. With their current try scoring rates you wouldn’t put it past either of them to score another hat-trick.

So one week to go and 13 positions to settle. Let’s see what happens this round.

 

Here is the Dream Team at the conclusion of Round 25 (with total points in brackets):

  1. Tom Trbojevic (155)
  2. Suliasi Vunivalu (136) – NEW
  3. Dylan Walker (118)
  4. James Roberts (123)
  5. Jordan Rapana (146)
  6. Gareth Widdop (116)
  7. Michael Morgan (106)
  8. Paul Vaughan (140)
  9. Cameron McInnes (124)
  10. Felise Kaufusi (126)
  11. Simon Mannering (140)
  12. Jake Trbojevic (145)
  13. Paul Gallen (160) – 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).
