FANTASY ROUND 11 REVIEW: Captain Creevy

Worcester Warriors Media SessionLast week’s smokies Fred Zeilinga (39 points) and Peter Samu (49 points), as well as rising stock George Smith (40 points), who has now had 3 big weeks in a row, were on the money, while falling stock Marty Banks (59 points) got another start, took his chances and made us look like fools. If you had listened to our advice and held Melani Nanai for another week, you would be delighted he has been given the start for the Blues at home against the Cheetahs.

Last weeks Blue Chip, Lima Sopoaga was rested for an extra week and should be right to go this week against the Bulls, which should see Marty Banks’ stocks start to fall.
