For the Stock Market this week, I thought I’d throw out 5 names that i think could be undervalued and potential big scorers.
Tanielu Tele’a (BLU) CENTRE – With 0.51 PPM, Tele’a is the 8th top centre who has played at least 5 games.
He makes his return this week after serving his 4 week ban for tackling Leyds in the air. In his opposite number, Ben “BLAM” Lam makes his return after missing a few weeks through injury. Tele’a will have his work cut out for him.
Dalton Papali’i (BLU) BACK ROW – Papali’i gets another start this weekend, this time in the 6 jersey replacing Tom “Big Sauce”Robinson who has earned a rest.
Papali’i has the ability to score points on both side of the ball and with 0.5 PPM, which is the same as Akira Ioane, Luke Whitelock and Jack Dempsey, he has posted some decent scores when he gets decent minutes.
Etene Nanai-Seturo (CHI) OUTSIDE BACK – With a starting average of 39 points and 0.57 PPM, Nanai-Seturo lit up the competition in the first few rounds, scoring 50s against the Highlanders, Sunwolves and Crusaders.
After a late call up in round 11, he is yet to find the same form. This week he lines up against Sibusiso “Stir fry” Nkosi who has a tackle completion rate of only 68% and im backing Nanai-Seturo to exploit that weakness.
Asafo Aumua (HUR) HOOKER – The barnstorming Aumua has worked his way ahead of Riccitelli to hold down the starting number 2 jersey for the third time in as many weeks.
Without a clear return date for Dane Coles and no concrete confirmation that Riccitelli wont regain the starting jersey, Aumua is a risk but “me oh my” is he worth it!
In his 2 starts this season he has posted both 50 and 46 points. This bloke is a beast!
Jock Campbell (RED) OUTSIDE BACK – I have put Campbell in this list as I believe he is a raw and cracking talent.
With only 1 start to his name and a few cameos off the bench, he has the 3rd top PPM for an outside back (with over 100 mins) behind Sevu Reece and Will Jordan.
Filipo Daugunu wont be returning to action for a few more weeks and his backup Jack Hardy is out for the season with an ACL rupture, meaning Campbell may have a few more chances to prove his worth.
Perform like he did last week and who knows, he could jump Daugunu as first choice winger.
