This is a critical position for DT coaches so if you don’t score well here you are going to struggle to get a high 700 score and a win.  There are different combinations used by coaches through the year but the top 10 DT coaches at least Campese (49.00) and Soward (46.83) are the favoured two, featuring in all but three teams.  As for the NEX-Cup try and find a top team without Hodgkinson (42.35) but there is a real mix with the 2nd spot.

With my review of the halves I have used 45 as the bench mark score by now I think we would all be disappointed if our halves didn’t at least get that score each week.  Again the table below does tell the story and if you haven’t settled on you combination this might help you out.
