NRL: Ben Barba looked to have cost the Sharks victory in the 81st minute, but luckily, James Maloney saved the day.

Anthony Milford has hit a lean patch.

WHAT the hell happened to Anthony Milford and Tuimoala Lolohea?

Benji Marshall (120) – the Benji Marshall of old turned up to Hunter Stadium and ensured there was going to be no Dragon slaying by the Knights. It was almost as if Benji was playing for a contract as he scored his first triple figure score of the year with a try that included a line break, three try assists, 4 line break assists, 3 tackle busts and 15 tackles.

Euan Aitken (106) – was only supposed to offer cover during the first two big bye rounds but has shown his 7.8 per cent of owners that there is no way he is ready to be sold. Aitken bagged a meat pie, a try assist, 2 line breaks, 5 tackle busts, 22 points from hit ups and 27 tackles.

Mitchell Barnett (94) – top scored for the Knights by a considerable distance after scoring a try with a line break, making an extra line break, 6 tackle busts and 29 tackles on the left edge. He will make nearly $35,000 this week but can still be picked up for under $200,000 for those looking for a potential cash grab.

Gareth Widdop (74) – also gave those who brought him in to offer Origin cover one last hurrah with a try assist, a line break, a line break assist, 7 tackle busts, an effective offload, 3 goals and 18 tackles. Widdop will make an extra $23,000 for his owners this week.

Michael Ennis (89) – blasted fans back to the days when post celebrations were all the rage using the ball to take a ‘selfie’ with fans when he scored his try with a line break. Ennis threw in a try assist, 8 runs and 44 tackles for good measure to take out Perfect Eight.

Andrew Fifita (84) – played 56 minutes which is a few minutes shy of his season average after requiring a concussion test when he came on for his second stint in the second half but continues to shape as a ‘must have’ for the run home. Fifita scored with a PPM of 1.5 as he made 20 hit ups, 4 tackle busts, 6 offloads and 21 tackles. Even though he had an extra six minutes to build his score in golden point, his PPM can’t be ignored.

Bodene Thompson (83) – top scored for the Warriors with 10 runs, a line break assist, 7 tackle busts, an effective offload and 43 tackles. He will now sit with a five game average of 76.

Simon Mannering (81) – only scored 14 points from his hit ups and made just one tackle bust but made an astonishing 68 tackles to score at just over a point a minute.

Moses Mbye (98) – was the driving force behind the smashing of the Broncos with 3 try assists, a line break, line break assist, 3 tackle busts, 2 forced drop outs and 22 tackles. Nearly 17,000 Mbye owners will be hoping for one last cracker from him during the final big bye round eighteen before they part ways.

Brett Morris (88) – somehow sits in 1,463 teams and treated them with a hat-trick of tries to open up his SuperCoach account for this season. Certainly has the potential to be a super POD for the run home.

NRL: Brett Morris capped a sensational return to the NRL with a hat-trick for the Bulldogs in their 40-14 win over Brisbane Broncos at ANZ Stadium.

Sam Kasiano (90) – crashed and soared over the line for his two tries with line breaks. Kasiano also made 5 tackle busts, 2 ineffective offloads, 9 runs and 7 tackles which will see him increase in value by over $40,000 this week to sit with a price tag of just over $210,000 and a negative breakeven.

Jacob Host (68) – scored his first NRL try with a line break to secure an initial price rise of $20,000 this week. Host played 53 minutes on the right edge where Tyson Frizell usually plays and Tariq Sims was unable to play against his old club due to a contractual agreement which may affect Host’s minutes in the future.

Tyson Frizell (37) – started the game at lock in place of Mike Cooper but was only required to play 39 minutes with the Dragons in control for the vast majority of the game.

Valentine Holmes (13) – left the field after 61 minutes with only 6 runs, a tackle bust and 3 tackles under his belt. Holmes’ score shows how hit and miss a CTW POD can be so choose wisely when sorting out final teams over the upcoming weeks.

Tuimoala Lolohea (16) – 10.3 per cent of SuperCoaches would have been blowing up deluxe when final team lists were released and they saw their POD who has averaged 75 in his last three games would be starting the game on the pine. Lolohea entered the game with 25 minutes to go and a heavily strapped leg and was only able to make 3 runs, 2 effective offloads and 3 tackles.

Ben Barba (18) – scored 50 points below his five round average of 68 but had a try disallowed and also dropped the ball with the line open when Chad Townsend (59) split the line in golden point. Barba will drop significantly in price by around $50,000 next week but will offer cover during rounds eighteen and nineteen.

Anthony Milford (29) – has well and truly taken over the mantle as the SuperCoach roller-coaster. Sitting on just seven points at halftime, if not for a late try, things could have ended even worse for over 50,000 coaches. The wheels continue to fall off the ‘Milford Express’ which after round ten was steaming along valued at $529,000, however, he will now leak another $30,000 in value this week and is chugging up a steep incline with a value of just over $340,000 prior to next round.

Tevita Pangai Jr (31) – played 37 minutes but may have played extended game time due to Matt Gillett only playing 58 minutes. Continues to show his potential as a SuperCoach player scoring with a PPM of 0.83 with 9 runs, 2 effective offloads and 12 tackles. Will make another $22,000 or thereabouts for his 23,047 owners this week.

Ben Hunt (36) – saw his ownership decrease over the past few weeks with Panthers rookie Nathan Cleary too tempting to pass up. Hunt had a busy night in defence with 23 tackles but was well controlled by the Bulldogs defence only managing the one late try assist for Anthony Milford when he put a pin point chip over the defensive line for him to score off. Hunt will drop another $35,000 in value if he finishes this round on 31.

Jaydn Su’A (44) – played the full game on the left edge in place of the suspended Sam Thaiday making 12 runs, an ineffective offload and 25 tackles. Su’A will be a cheapie option next week if he retains selection with a breakeven probably somewhere in the negative 30s.
