Draft Breakdown: Round 19, waiver-wire, trade goals

Most leagues only have two or three games left before the draft final.

Last week’s priority waiver, Sean O’Sullivan, passed us with a handy 80 points. Sean will be interesting next year at the Dolphins. I don’t expect the world’s top scores to leave the top club, but I do like a half time for SuperCoach.

Unfortunately, Dom Young only played half the game for 32 points before injuring his ribs and Lodge only got limited minutes, but that should increase.

Below are the priority and value waivers held in over 65% of the leagues.

TOP PRIORITY WAIVERS

Toluta Koula

Koula finally seems to be getting a decent ball and has earned DCE’s trust with a three-round average of 75 PPG and a five-round average of 68 PPG.

He recovers good balls at the start of the match, as well as beautiful line balls in the offensive zones.

We didn’t see him get a lot of opportunities earlier in the year, but he still has a decent 26-base average with a few more tackle busts.

Manly has a good run to end the year, playing the Dragons, Roosters, Eels, Titans, Sharks, Raiders and Bulldogs to end the season.

They are also a team that has proven that they can really rack up points on these weaker teams.

VALUE EXEMPTION

Young Tonumaipea /Will Warbrick

Young Tonumaipea or Will Warbrick will likely be named on the wing as Nick Meaney fills the full-back position due to Papenhuyzen’s season-ending injury.

Looking at their stats, both showed good goalscoring potential and work ethic in the Queensland Cup.

Although the Storm won’t put cricket scores on the teams, they are still one of the best teams in the competition.

Whoever gets the role will likely play left wing, outside Cameron Munster, which is the ideal position.

Corey Wadell

Wadell cemented his role as the 80-minute right-back rower for the Bulldogs.

He was always an excellent workaholic and suffered from being in and out of the team or playing reduced minutes.

Now that he’s locked in the 80-minute role, he’s producing respectable SuperCoach scores with a three-round average of 55 PPG and a five-round average of 54 PPG.

Along with his usual great work ethic, he’s getting more offensive opportunities and the Bulldogs are starting to score points and were unlucky last week with a disallowed try.

Dale Finucane

Finucane suffered a couple of concussions and a knee injury this year, which affected his 45 PPG average.

Since his return he has been slowly building up his minutes and played 65 minutes last week and 59 minutes the week before.

Last week, he also managed to collect 56 points in pure base stats.

Sam Verrills

I’ve always been a huge Verrills fan, and I think people forget that he was coming back from an ACL injury last year, which would have impacted his game and SuperCoach scores.

He’s been in a bit of a war this season with a broken thumb and collarbone, but every time he plays the Roosters look so much better with their offense.

He has a three-point average of 58 PPG that was boosted by a try and extended minutes last week.

Verrills’ effect on the Roosters team is too great, especially with the Roosters’ injury issues.

If you fight for a prostitute, you could do worse than Verrills.

Philip Sami

I don’t mind Sami one bit, even though he plays for the Titans, he averages 56 PPG and averages 30 in base stats which is great for CTW.

The Titans have a decent run to end the year and could just throw the ball a little more in their final four games of the season against Manly, Dragons, Knights and Warriors.

Nathan Brown

Nathan Brown was granted an immediate release to join the Storm.

Similar to Lodge at the Roosters, it may take the Storm a while to give Brown decent minutes.

He has greater potential than your average waiver, although we are coming to the end of the season where we cannot afford to wait for potential players.

I still wouldn’t mind hiding him and he might even get a positional upgrade if he plays a prop for Storm.
