Rob Bruns knows what it feels like to take out the top prize in fantasy NRL, and will be on board every week as part of NRL.com's video news show NRL Daily.

Here is a sneak peak at Brunsy's  Round 1 tips. Catch the full details in NRL Daily.

Brunsy's Round 1 Tips:
1. Spend big on your Top 17 players
2. Build your team around a few Dream Team big guns
3. Don't focus on Origin or Bye rounds this early in the season
4. Play with your head and not your heart
5. Study the team lists and don't pick injured players

Remember, Toyota NRL Dream Team goes into Partial Lockout mode at the start of the first match of Round 1, on Thursday evening at 7:30pm AEDT. This means that all of your Knights and Dragons player selections will be locked in. You'll then be able to continue to edit your squad up until the full lockout, at 7:30pm on Friday evening.
