The Draft Teams

OG Draft League Semi-Final Highlights:

Best 1st Round Pick: Sevu Reece- The best player in the comp a full 11 points! It was never going to be anyone else.
Biggest Balls up: Braydon Ennor – The Crusaders bench outside back was taken in the 7th round by Wylie as he looked to load up on Crusaders outside backs. Never mind that he also had George Bridge who literally took his spot.
Value Pick (Snuck through late): Tomas Cubelli – gone in the 15th round, he scores 0.51 points per minute! Not bad for a last starter.
Best Smokie: Peter Umaga-Jensen, with only two rounds of form he is probably the biggest smokie of the round.
Best Sub: Agustin Creevy, the tireless hooker scores 0.68 points per minute, if he gets big minutes he could be the top hooker of the week!

Average Points Value per team ranked 1-4
