RABBITOHS PLAYERS TO WATCH
Jeff Lima ($204,600 – FRF)
Not your game breaking forward like Sam Burgess but he’ll be ultra-consistent. Misses very few tackles and will work hard. Should rise from his 200k price tag.
Ben Te’o ($290,700 - 2RF/CTR)
Scored 59 points vs the Roosters the last time they played but at 290k it might be wise to see how he scores in the first few rounds. He should build in minutes over the season so keep an eye on him. Has the potential to be a big scorer. A handy dual-position player also.
The Burgess Twins (Tom - $101,600, George - $136,900 – FRF)
If either of them are given a decent crack at First Grade expect them to be great cash-cows. Big, strong and hard running like their brothers they’ll be ones to watch. George played only 16 minutes a game in his three games but still averaged almost 20 points. They’ll be fighting hard for a spot in the Rabbitohs pack so wait for them to play a couple of games before picking them up.
John Sutton ($374,400 - HLF)
Outstanding finish to the 2012 season averaging over 57 per round over the last 10 rounds. If he can continue that form he’ll be a good buy. Makes plenty of tackles and kicks-in-play so he should be fairly consistent.
OTHER PLAYERS TO WATCH
Tariq Sims (Cowboys - $161,800 - FRF)
One player you MUST have in your side. He has had a horror run with injuries so comes at a bargain price this year. Huge potential and is a must pick.
Michael Oldfield (Roosters - $169,900 - WFB)
Given limited opportunity at Manly with their depth out wide but still managed to score 8 tries in 9 games last season. Should score a starting spot at the Roosters so watch him increase in price.
High risk but high reward players
Kurt Gidley ($231,300) and Terry Campese ($262,000) are high risk due to injury concerns but might be worth considering given they are genuine stars at good prices. Many experienced Dream Teamers might put them in the “never again” pile but have a think about them.
More to come…
