The Draft Teams

The Wooden Spoon:

OG Draft League Semi-Final Highlights:

Best 1st Round Pick: Sevu Reece (Larry) – Surely the “Match-up Ender” has to take the cake here, especially considering Larry countered Richie Mo with Beaudy.
Biggest Balls up: Ryan Crotty (Larry) – Why would you pick the 32nd ranked player and 5th ranked centre on averages with your 6th overall pick? Because you ballsed up obviously!
Value Pick (Snuck through late): Tevita Kurindrani (Nelson) – he might have missed out on Crotty, but instead he got the 3rd ranked centre with his 14th pick! This good be a big points win for the man we call “Choo Choo”.
Best Sub: Matt Todd (Larry) – Why would you bench “Finals Todd” for Whetu Douglas who only plays 50minutes and has a 3rd average of 26.7???? We have absolutely no idea, but hey it is the wooden spoon play off!
