Cowboys playmaker Michael Morgan.

NRL Fantasy Wrap: Finals Week 3

Michael Morgan stars again, Felise Kaufusi pips Cameron Smith and the other big Fantasy scores from the preliminary finals.

Storm v Broncos

Felise Kaufusi has been one of Melbourne's unsung heroes this season and a strong Fantasy performer to boot, and he was the best of the lot in Fantasy terms on Friday night, contributing 32 tackles, a try assist, two line-break assists and five tackle busts in Melbourne's emphatic 30-0 win over the Broncos. Everyone's go-to captain Cameron Smith hit a typically strong 65, Matt Gillett and Tohu Harris both scored in the high 50s and Billy Slater grabbed a couple of tries for the premiership favourites.

Roosters v Cowboys

Is there anything Michael Morgan can't do? The fill-in Cowboys halfback produced the top Fantasy score of the weekend as he carried his team into the grand final with yet another inspirational performance, including a 40/20 a try assist and a field goal. Roosters tackle machine Jake Friend was the next best, while North Queensland superstar Jason Taumalolo was outshone (Fantasy-wise at least) by no frills duo Scott Bolton and Kane Linnett (both 60).
