With 4 Round of the Telstra Premiership complete, resident Toyota NRL Dream Team expert Rob Bruns believes the player market is starting to steady.

This week Brunsy takes a look at players who have performed well so far this season, and analyses whether or not they will be long-term keepers or just short-term money-makers.

Here are Brunsy's tips for Round 5:

1. Jeff Robson and Jayson Bukuya are two Sharks who come at a good price, and both will continue to score well with plenthy of touches of the ball and strong minutes.

2. With other back rowers still to return for the Roosters, Boyd Cordner looks to be a good short-term prospect, but over the longer term might struggle to maintain the same numbers when the Roosters' forward pack returns to full strength.

3. Four tries in four games means the Panthers' Travis Burns' price will sky rocket, but this try-scoring feast is unlikely to last week-in, week-out, making him a difficult choice to keep long term.

With a decent score of 798 (with just 15 scoring players) from Round 4, Brunsy's Bruisers are starting to crow. Especially now that he is one point ahead of the Lone Scout... so watch out Scout!
