Beauden MISS

Each week we provide our insight and opinion over weekly transfers and line-up advice . In the interests of full disclosure we’re going to review our selections to see whether we talk complete crap and our selections bomb, or more likely prove that we’re actually clairvoyants with an uncanny ability to see into the future.

First up let’s look at our collective Transfer Selections: (original post here)

BOSSMAN:

SELL:

  • Image result for green thumbs up Folau 51 pts – is solid, but this pick was because there was better value elsewhere at OBK and Izzy dropped another $65k. HIT
  • Image result for red thumbs downDane Coles 60pts – Ok he dropped $20k, but he was the 2nd highest scoring hooker. MISS 
  • Image result for green thumbs upHaylett-Petty 44pts – Let’s face it that’s great for the Force, and solid on the week. He did drop another $38k though and there were plenty of cheaper options elsewhere who racked up points. HIT

HOLD:

  • Image result for red thumbs downKerevi 27 pts – kept in check by the Force. Outside the top 20 scorers and lost $64k in value. MISS
  • Reiko Ioane 32 pts – average week for Reiko. Didn’t lose much value, but didn’t particularly excite. 50/50
  • Image result for green thumbs upTJ Perenara 30 pts – looked better value that his 30 pts tells you. Top 5 SH. HIT

BUY:

  • Image result for red thumbs downReiko Ioane 32 pts – average week for Reiko and there were 20 other centres who scored higher. His price barely moved. MISS
  • Image result for red thumbs downBeauden Barrett 20 pts – bottom quarter of starting fly halves. A little unlucky with his disallowed try, but still a bad performance. MISS
  • Image result for green thumbs upNaholo 58 pts – another great outing. HIT

FEASTJUICE:

SELL:

  • Image result for red thumbs downRicciteli / Black / Aso / Laumape – Aso and Laumape started, scored big, and looked great. Ricciteli threw an insance wrong handed try assist, only Black was limited. BIG MISS
  • Image result for green thumbs upNanai 14 pts – the blues found it hard going agains the Chiefs, and Nanai was barely in the game. Lost another $94k. HIT
  • Pieter-Steph Du Toit 48 pts– PSDT had a great week and was the top scoring lock. This pick was based on relative value. Whilst Eben under performed slightly at 30pts, there  were plenty of other locks like Whitelock, Snyman, Retallick who offered better value and got 30+ pts for $200k less. PSDT also lost another $43k. 50/50

HOLD:

  • Folau 51 pts – if you had him, he had a good week in large part due to his insane last play side step. He lost a chunk of value again though. 50/50.
  • Image result for green thumbs upMcKenzie 70 pts– Great week, back to his best. HIT.
  • Image result for green thumbs upSkelton 0 pts – missed the game with the Lions, so win this on a technicality. HIT.

BUY:

  • Image result for red thumbs downBeauden Barrett 20 pts – bottom quarter of starting fly halves. A little unlucky with his disallowed try, but still a bad performance. MISS
  • Stormers (SP Marais, Etzebeth, Kolisi) – Marais was the highest scoring OBK, Etzebeth was solid, but Kolisi was the worst pick of a high scoring Stormers back-row. 50/50.
  • Image result for green thumbs upHika Elliot 37pt – another great outing for Hika, snaffling a try. HIT

So let’s total is up for the week. If we take +1 HIT, -1 MISS, 0 for 50/50 then the week 2 totals are:

BOSSMAN: +0 on the week

FEASTJUICE: +2 on the week

Now let’s look at the Week 2 suggested line-up.

Image result for green thumbs upWEEK 2 LINE-UP:

There average score across week 2 was 544. Bossman’s team below scored a stonking 608, without taking into account captain choice. Clearly he bottled the captain choice and didn’t pick one in his original post, but captaining any of the outside backs would have put you in sniffing distance of 700pts. Anyway you slice it up there’s some good picks and it’s a solid side, within the $6M cap. HIT
