Round 9 Late Mail

The big news for Wests Tigers fans is the return of captain Robbie Farah, who also happens to be one of the most high-scoring players in Fantasy history. Braith Anasta also returns along with Sauaso Sue — who aren’t in any doubt regarding their injuries — while Tim Simona also returns from injury. With no extra man named on the bench, Wests Tigers are expected to line up as listed, with the biggest question for many being as to how early Mick Potter will get cash cow Blake Austin (bench) into the game.’s Lone Scout Says:

“Robbie Farah and Braith Anasta are back from injury, with Blake Austin back to the bench and Joel Luani and Sitaleki Akauola dropping out. Kurtis Rowe ($130,946) is suddenly back on the agenda as a cash cow after making 56 points in the loss to the Roosters — a score that should keep his price climbing in the short term, but it could only be another couple of games before the return of James Tedesco…”

The Final Word:

KEY RETURN — Tim Simona ($262,118)

Tim Simona’s return to the back-line might not seem like a big deal, but it’s one with plenty of consequences — the biggest being for David Nofoaluma outside of him. Simona is a huge threat in attack and will certainly attract plenty of attention, which could see Nofoaluma with additional space outside of him. Anasta’s return means the Club’s right-hand side attack is back at full strength, and will certainly test the Sharks’ left-hand edge.


BACK BUT DON'T BUY — Robbie Farah ($518,915)

Coaches that hung on to Robbie Farah ($518,915) will be cheering about the return of the skipper, but he isn’t worth picking up this week if you don’t, given that the No. 9 will likely play Origin should he get through Saturday unscathed. The same likely goes for Aaron Woods ($357,228) who comes into this game averaging more metres, tackles and hit-ups than any player from both teams.


WATCH OUT FOR — Martin Taupau ($246,711)

It could be time to pick up Martin Taupau ($246,711) if you don’t have him — just for the fact that his minutes will likely go up should Woods head to Origin camp next week. Taupau is the likely starter alongside Galloway, which will certainly increase his minutes and work-rate. Sauaso Sue ($187,901) also should see an increase in minutes and is one to keep an eye on as well moving forward.
