2020 Rd 09 Dragons vs Sea Eagles, Jubilee
The big change is McInnes starting Lock and Hunt at Hooker. I wouldn't jump at Hunt thinking 80 minutes. He has a BE around 62 Pts. We can see him having a 20 minute spell with McInnes moving to Hooker for that time. Tariq Sims return relegating Fuimaono to the bench. Sell! Fui's time at 2nd Row didn't exactly pan out well for those of us that got on board.
Addin Fonua-Blake is out suspended for 2 games. their bench forwards are likely to share the load. Reuben Garrick was better at Fullback in Rd 8 than Rd 7. We still have him down for a 36 Pt average including the goal kicking. Which is some value given he is priced at just over 31 Pts but not enough to chase. Keep in mind - he has very little Senior Level experience at fullback. Elliott, who was solid for Turbo last year, could come in and push him to the Wing at any time.
Marty Taupau is still just a watch for us and has a BE around 72 Pts. Jake Trbojevic is still a touch over priced and has a 53 BE. Better value buys around at present. Definitely hold off a week and see what Thompson offers if you are considering Jurbo this week - Butcher could also offer the same for much cheaper.
