Sea Eagles

As  predicted, last week Brendan Elliott came in at Fullback, shifting  Garrick back to Wing and Funa out of the 17. The only other change is  Morgan Boyle (Groin) out with Corey Waddell coming on to the bench.  Fonua-Blake returns from suspension next week. Cade Cust, $487K (37.9  Pts), scored 44 including a Try Save in Rd 9. On the back oh his 55 Pt  Haul coming off the bench in Rd 8, he has a BE of 35. With Dylan Walker  back between Rd 12 and Rd 14, Cust may have 2-5 weeks in the 6 Jersey.  His past scoring points to a 40ish average though and Manly are not  travelling well at present. So probably best to leave this one alone.

Eels

No  sign of Mitchell Moses this week, Field gets another week to try to get  to $150K profit. He's made $104K so far and we have his BE at -7. A  modest 35 or so should get the job done. Moses is likely to be back next  week.

Junior Paulo only lasted 29 minutes last week after suffering back  spasms. He has been named to start at Prop this week. Jai Arrow had this  issue in 2018 and it impacted him for several weeks. It's one of those  unpredictable conditions and we'll just have to see how it plays out.  One player that stands to benefit is Nathan Brown, who played the full  80 minutes, in the absence of Paulo. Brown lived up to our thoughts that  the new 6 Again Rule suited his game perfectly. He pumped out 83 Points  including 55 Tackles and 266 Meters. We're thinking a 65 minute average  for 60-65 Pts from here forward - provided he doesn't do anything  careless or stupid. He should have a 60 minute floor with extra minutes  in weeks where there are injuries.
