The Draft Teams
The Wooden Spoon:
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: Larry let Nelson steal Richie Mo’unga to put on his bench, the clear 2nd best fly half in the 12th round.
Value Pick (Snuck through late): Ben Lam, Nelson picked him up with his 17th pick! Insane when you consider he could be a complete game breaker.
Best Smokie: There are no smokies in a two man battle with 8 teams!
Best Sub: Codie Taylor, it must be hard not to start the All Black against the Highlanders, but Folau Fainga’a is his first choice. Tough decision either way!
