Firstly, I am devastated that my childhood hero and rugby league legend Brad Fittler only managed to score 276 points last week in Toyota NRL Dream Team Finals. It has to be one of his worst performances on or off the field ever and I implore everyone not to follow any of his tips this weekend.
Here are my tips for week three of the Telstra Premiership finals:
- Manly's Jorge Taufua is starting to remind me of a John Hopoate: he is big, strong and breaking tackles at will. His Dream Team finals average is high and his price is low, which makes him a great choice for my team.
- I think Sam Burgess will come out on top of James Graham in the battle of the British bulldogs, so I will be giving him the nod over Graham for my front row.
- Josh Jackson is just about the best value for money buy left in the comp and his workrate for the Bulldogs will see him score a few points against the Rabbitohs.
- Ben Barba hasn't scored too well in finals Dream Team so far but I can't go past a superstar like him on the big stage. Both Barba and Greg Inglis will find positions in my squad this week.
