    2016 Best Buys

    Post by Random on Sat Oct 31, 2015 1:31 pm

    So who do you guys think are the best signings for the 2016 Season? Mine would be the following.

    1. Roger Tuivasa-Scheck
    2. James Maloney
    3. Keiran Foran
    4. Martin Taupau
    5. Trent Hodkinson

    I also like what Damien Cook could possibly do at Souths.

    Isaac Luke will be a massive signing for the Warriors.

    Yep, interesting to see what Cook does.  Would be massive to keep that form up but time will tell.

    Haven't done any research yet so what I will be looking at for these players


    1. Roger Tuivasa-Scheck - Will probably be in my side in all comps. Base states seem pretty high
    2. James Maloney - Will he have less goal kicks attempts? What was the kicking yards breakdown between him and Pearce? Will this improve with Townsend as his partner?
    3. Keiran Foran - Does he have the scope to become an elite player? Or is he just a 4 or 5 game price rise player?
    4. Martin Taupau - More minutes? Does more minutes necessarily mean better stats
    5. Trent Hodkinson - Same as Maloney. Less goal kick attempts? Seemed to dominate kicking with Reynolds in side. Mullen is a pretty dominant player but will get injured

    Damien Cook - Played 80 minutes in all games didn't he? So really depends on the discount he gets.

    Foran is going to be a total flop (in real terms, not fantasy) Going to struggle now he's surrounded by the cream that Parra has to offer.

    Fantasy wise Cook will be a complete no-go, played 80 minutes and scored a try in all his games last year. Actual league wise he could be great if given the chance.

    This thread needs 10 rounds before it becomes relevant. At the moment it might as well be called which big names changed teams.

    What about one of the Ipswich boys that goes beast mode ?

    What about the bloke that was sitting 2nd or 3rd string behind a rep player who changed teams to get a run and takes the opportunity with 2 hands.

    What if as some believe Kieran Foran goes alright as DCE's bride but hasn't got what it takes to direct a side around for 26 weeks and make the finals. He then goes from this list to the Duds of 2016.

    What about how the reduced interchange effects Kapow and he doesn't have the intensity because the first couple of weeks he played like that he burnt out and the halves cut his tired ass to shreds ? Another dud buy.

    Well its also going top be a lot easier to predict the winner of the Melbourne Cup at 4pm today.

    You aren't going to win much of anything for doing so though.

    Didn't you hear, we signed Matt Ballin and Dene Halatau.

    Now shut up and stop complaining, everything is under control
