The Judiciary – It’s a busy week!

Seven players have been charged following a marathon sitting by the NRL’s match review committee on Monday. Eels’ forwards Ben Smith (grade two dangerous contact) and Fuifui Moimoi (grade one careless high tackle) headline the long list of charges, while Cowboys prop James Tamou (grade two striking) is facing a two week stint on the sidelines. Moimoi can escape a ban if he pleads guilty while the remaining four – Trent Hodkinson (dangerous throw), Jason Ryles (dangerous contact), Anthony Minichiello (dangerous contact) and Ben Cross (careless high tackle) – have all been slapped with grade one charges but will be also be free to play next weekend if they enter early guilty pleas. Parramatta have placed leading Sydney lawyer and judiciary expert Geoff Bellew SC on standby should the club opt to fight either charge. The match review committee took most of Monday to come up with the season-high list of charges.

Boom Sydney Roosters centre Kane Linnett will miss 4-6 weeks after suffering a knee injury during Sunday’s 19-12 NRL loss to St George Illawarra. The 21-year-old has medial ligament damage in his right knee after lasting just eight minutes of the epic SCG encounter. The Roosters’ other injury fears have eased with prop Jason Ryles (ribs) and back Joseph Leilua (corked quad) both possible starters against Cronulla at Toyota Stadium on Friday night. Second-rower Mitch Aubusson (shoulder) is likely to return a week later for the round 24 clash with Gold Coast. “That’s a pretty good result after the incident, we were a bit worried about that,” captain Braith Anasta said of Linnett’s injury. “A few other guys have got some niggling injuries, we could miss a few this week.

In Part 5 of Preparing for the bye rounds I reviewed Nate Myles and Jason Ryles from the Sydney Roosters after round 9.  I selected those players because they represented value for money at the time.  Now that we are coming to the business end of the season where we need to be scoring 800 to be competitive, it is probably more important to have payers, particularly forwards, who are regularly scoring 40 plus each game to support the stars that are capable of scoring high 50’s and 60’s. 

The Roosters will have their final bye in round 14 so I’ll take a look and see how these players have stacked up since round 9 and look at a couple of other players that you might be thinking about for different reasons.

Nate Miles (FRF/2RF) @ $251,200.00, averaging 38.92. Since round 9 Myles has lost $2,900.00 in value and posted scores of 45, 42 and 24 with his season average dropping slightly.  In round 13 he still had 28 tackles but only made 5 in MG and lost 9 points from mistakes.  The 24 in round 13 is now his lowest score for the season but it’s the first score under 36 since round 3 where he scored 25.  It’s not likely he will gain in value but you would still have to rate him as a solid performer and with no call up to SOO so far you should have him available for the rest of the season.  Continue reading

In round 11, the Roosters and the Bronco’s have their first bye with four other teams.  The Roosters and the Bronco’s have their second bye in round 15 and 18 respectively while the other four teams have their 2nd bye in round 17, along with the Rabbitohs and the Knights. Continue reading

Jason Ryles and Trent Waterhouse Round 4

After looking through The Late Mail, again searching for tidbits on the popularly selected DT players, I found the following trickle of information. ‘Jason Ryles is still a week away’ and ‘Trent Waterhouse is still a chance to play, He will undergo another fitness test on Sunday. If he fails the team will remain 1 – 17’. For those Coaches who have either of these players, hopefully this will help you decide whether a trade is in order, or in Waterhouse’s situation the possibility of a selection – a gamble for the first round of DT matches.

Jason Ryles missing persons?

After missing most of the telecast of the Dogs V Roosters match on Sunday I was left confused when the listed to play, Jason Ryles was not on the field and scored a whopping 0, following up on his heat affected performance of 10 the week previous. After much searching and chatting amongst coaches, noone had the answer as to why the forward was missing from the game. Finally a little bit of news hs surfaced and even though small and not so descriptive – it’s something! The Roosters, whose unbeaten start was abruptly ended by the Bulldogs on Sunday, expect to have Jason Ryles (lower back) and Phil Graham (concussion) back. Watch this space for updates on his progress.
