The match review committee examined three other  incidents from the weekend’s trials.

Sydney Roosters forward Nate Myles was cleared of a lifting tackle on Wests Tigers back Wade McKinnon, while Cronulla recruit Jeremy Smith was deemed not to have tripped Newcastle’s Mark Taufua.

Penrith half Luke Walsh’s sickening hit on Parramatta’s Daniel Mortimer, which also sparked a melee, was deemed legitimate.

Gold Coast youngster Ryan James will need to wait another day to know whether he faces a second pre-season suspension after he was placed on report in the trial against North Queensland.

Footage of the Titans-Cowboys match will not be available until Tuesday.

The match review committee is poised to wreak havoc with the opening week plans of several NRL sides after a potentially costly final round of trial matches over the weekend. Penrith, Cronulla and the Sydney Roosters all face nervous waits ahead of the match review committee releasing their charges on Monday, with key players Luke Walsh (Panthers), Jeremy Smith (Sharks) and Test forward Nate Myles (Roosters) involved in questionable tackles. Myles’ incident appears the most serious of the three, despite no action being taken by the referees after a lifting tackle on Wests Tigers fullback Wade McKinnon. McKinnon lost the ball after appearing to be dumped on his head ten minutes into the second half at the Sydney Football Stadium – the oversight compounded when the Roosters cleaned up possession and scored in the corner.

Tigers 19 – Roosters 8

Wests Tigers halfback Robert Lui has the early running in the battle for the NRL club’s No.7 jumper this coming season after a five-star display in a 19-8 trial win over the Sydney Roosters. The gifted halfback showed deft skills to set up first-half tries for skipper Robbie Farah and Liam Fulton, before the 21-year-old sealed the match with a blazing individual effort to totally overshadow more illustrious teammates Farah and Benji Marshall. Lui’s performance was a none-too-subtle reminder to coach Tim Sheens given the man he was meant to be vying with for the No.7 jumper – Tim Moltzen – was making his return after 10 months out due to a knee reconstruction. Lui put the icing on the cake with a field goal after the siren, the Tigers claiming their first Foundation Cup in the fifth year of the clash. Continue reading

Roll Call – Sydney City Roosters

The Sydney Roosters escaped their loss to the Gold Coast Titans with minor bumps and bruises ahead of their crucial home game on Sunday. Mose Masoe was the only player to receive treatment during the match after he suffered a stinger in his right shoulder. Nate Myles hip injury he suffered in Origin was aggravated but both players are expected to play at the Sydney Football Stadium against the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles on Sunday.

This is the last key position to look at and there isn’t too many here that are averaging over 40.  I have used 45 as the bench mark score for the last two columns, but perhaps I should have used 30, it might have been a bit more flattering for the big fellers.

There aren’t a lot of stars to choose from here as far as Dream Team goes.  If you are looking at options for your front row it will depend on what points you are looking for and how much money you have to spend as to who you go for.

Scout tweets Myles update

From the tweet of the Lone Scout – Roosters re: Myles- “just finished training, they won’t know fitness until 2moro. They’ll c how he gets thru 2moro until a decision is made”

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
