This makes sense. Eels blooded Sivo and Ethan Parry ahead of him last year. Has to be a reason. Not sure why anyone thought he’d be ahead of Sami, Don, Pearson.
In saying that, the missing piece in my team is a 228 k winger for injury coverage. The question is who is more likely to not play (and be a loop option) if they score poorly or score well enough to be able to make money/play when needed.
There is Leleisiuao, A. Hopoate and perhaps Kepaoa as candidates. Hopoate is apparently due back from his knee reconstruction any time between Round 4 and 14 and has been undergoing scientific tests to determine when. Injuries will be the way Leleosiuao will get into the team and there are rumours that Kepaoa may be in Round 1.
How would you rank these options?
