NRL Fantasy winners & losers: Round 2

first_imgPlay NRL Fantasy presented by Youi. It’s free, fun and totally addictiveWinnersWarriors superstars Roger Tuivasa-Sheck (90) and Shaun Johnson (68) inspired their team to a win over the Ash Taylor-less Titans and grabbed a lot of Fantasy points in the process, sitting at one and two in the points rankings this week.They weren’t the only Warriors to impress, with value recruits Tohu Harris (68 points, $35,000 price rise) and Peta Hiku (53 points, $41,000 price rise) proving their worth to Fantasy coaches.Several big names also fired, led by Manly half Daly Cherry-Evans (74), must-have Rabbitohs hooker Damien Cook (72), Roosters fullback James Tedesco (70) and Cowboys wizard Johnathan Thurston.Cook was the biggest earner of the week with a $67,000 jump after averaging 64.5 in the opening two rounds, just ahead of Wests Tigers winger/fullback Corey Thompson ($65,000), Tuivasa-Sheck ($59,000) andBroncos prop Tevita Pangai Junior, who jumped $52,000 this week and looks like a great buy in the front row – he still costs the same as Russell Packer, who has scored 25 points a game compared with Pangai Junior’s 50.Richie Kennar (+$50k), Slade Griffin (+$47k), Kalyn Ponga (+$41k), and Raymond Faitala-Mariner (+$39k) are more popular cash cows on the rise, while Panthers impact forward Viliame Kikau had a much quieter week than round one with 24 points but still earned another $49,000 price jump.Meanwhile a couple of hard-working forwards in Titans prop Jai Arrow (54) and Rabbitohs lock Cameron Murray (53) both performed like cut-price keepers.LosersWarriors cheapie Isaiah Papali’i suffered a knee injury against the Titans and left the field with just 2 points to his name, halting any possible price rises for now, while Greg Inglis (concussion, 14), Jordan Kahu (jaw, 2), Daniel Tupou (pectoral, 6) and Sam McKendry (knee, 26) were among the other players to be struck down by injuries.Jarryd Hayne (10) had a game to forget against Manly, like most of Parramatta’s players, and dropped $17,000 in value while Storm halfback Brodie Croft struggled once again and has now lost almost $50,000 on his starting price. He’s got the potential to turn it around but after scores of 21 and 23 will be a trade for a lot of teams this week.James Maloney scored 14 to bring his Fantasy average into positive territory (well, 5) but he’s lost $78,000 in value already and the 6881 Fantasy coaches who have him should cut their losses quickly. He’s a quality player but with a habit of coming up with missed tackles, errors and penalties his game just doesn’t suit Fantasy scoring.Speaking of negative scores, Valentine Holmes finished on -1 and after last week’s 8 he’s now lost a massive $98,000 in value – and he’ll need to score 66 or more to avoid another price drop this week.After a couple of strong efforts in round one there were big comedowns for cut-price forwards Robbie Rochow (14, including eight missed tackles) and James Fisher-Harris (19).And alarm bells could be ringing for Paul Gallen owners, with the Sharks skipper and long-time Fantasy gun making just 28 in 57 minutes this week after scoring 36 off the bench in round one. On the flipside, his price has dipped $52,000 in the opening rounds so he could be great value down the track if and when he turns his form around.NRL Fantasy Team of the Week1.

Maximum profitability of Querol: four goals in 365 ‘of play

first_imgIf there is a player from Cádiz who has claimed himself in this last month of competition, this is undoubtedly David Querol. The Catalan extreme, converted into its best moments as a second point, He has profited as nobody the minutes he has played in goals. Has done four in just 365 minutes of play between League and Cup. His benefits have led him to be on the exit ramp to end up on loan in the winter market, which now Many questions have been raised as to whether it should be left on loan to a Second. Elche has been interested in its services, but seen what has been seen, and more after the expected march until June from Caye Quintana to Fuenlabrada, everything indicates that Cervera will retain its march. Querol, as we say, has reversed a situation against him in recent games. Before his first goal of the season against Real Oviedo at Carlos Tartiere, he only accumulated 105 minutes of play. For eight days, he was not summoned, although it must be borne in mind that in the prolegomena of the match against Albacete he suffered some muscular discomfort from which he took to recover. Although he was summoned against Lugo, he did not play and had to wait to reappear in Fuenlabrada. His moment came two games later, when he left by Caye Quintana in Oviedo, dialing a few minutes later. Querol’s profitability rose exponentially only two days later, scoring the winning goal in the Copa clash against Loyalty, and to close your fantastic week, He also scored another goal for Numancia which, however, could not avoid the win against the Sorianos. In spite of everything, it was not of the game before the Ponferradina, in a clash that was complicated by the expulsion of Quezada, which prevented Cervera from raising a final arreón with him on the grass. And that’s it this week, he advanced his team with a superb goal a pass from Javi Navarro, which, however, did not serve to certify the round pass when the UD Logroñés tied and imposed these in the penalty shootout. That said, a profitability that clears doubts.This Tuesday will know the extent of Fali’s injuryThe tense wait to know the exact mayor of the injury that occurred on his right foot the Valencian central Fali, at the end of the first part of the cupbearer against UD Logroñés in Nuevo Las Gaunas. The cadist player underwent different tests this Monday to assess the exact extent of his injury. The first exploration that was done in a hospital in Logroño moments after leaving the field were not very positive, but The club has preferred to make sure well before giving a definitive diagnosis that will be known on Tuesday.If the forecasts are confirmed, that is, you may suffer a broken bone in the damaged foot, it is speculated that Fali could be convalescing for an approximate period of at least two months. If so, it would be necessary to assess whether Cervera has a valid replacement taking into account the almost certain exit of Sergio Sánchez in the winter market.last_img read more

What happened to the pichichis of the last ten Cups of the King?

first_imgThe Copa del Rey is the tournament of the little ones, of the opportunities for those teams that conform year to year with the salvation in LaLiga Santander and also for the less habitual soccer players. With few exceptions, coaches usually bet in the KO tournament for substitutes or alternate undisputed with regular players. Thus, Messi did not dispute the round of 16, Modric and Kroos stayed at home, Morata also did not travel with the already eliminated Atlético … Reviewing the First Division scorers table in the last decade leads to an unequivocal conclusion: Leo Messi has been the king and only Cristiano and Luis Suárez have shaded him. However, in Copa, different pichichis have happened in recent years. What is theirs? Are they still in Spanish football? Have they always been from a First Division team?Last season they shared an award Ángel Rodríguez, Rodrigo Moreno and Toko Ekambi. Curious, since neither Real Madrid nor Barcelona nor Atlético had representation. All of them scored five goals and the Valencianist helped his team win the tournament. They continue in their club, except the former striker of Villarreal, who has landed at Lyon in this same winter market. In the 2017-18 season, two other players tied targets at the top of the table: Luis Suarez and Correa They signed five targets. The Argentine is now owned by Lazio, which invested a figure close to fifteen million euros. Of course, none could reach the figure of Victor Curto, Murcia forward, who scored six goals. His team did not even reach sixteenths, despite the display of his battering ram in the previous rounds.The pichichis of the Cup in the last decade The unforgettable year of Pablo InfanteThe new format of the Copa del Rey was born with the purpose of gaining emotion and, why not, that the Mirandés deed happened again in the 2011-12 season. It started as so many others have done: as Second Division B team It is measured with a club that plays European competitions. Before, I had already eliminated Amorebieta, Balompédica Linense and Logroñés. In sixteenths it was time for the truth. And they succeeded: they overthrew the Villarreal and then they would do it with him Racing and the Spanish. In the semifinals, the Athletic He put an end to the dream and warned them at the gates of the final. Even so, it was an unforgettable year, which ended with the promotion to LaLiga SmartBank.The great protagonist of that unlikely story was Pablo Infante. The attacker was the top scorer of that Cup with six goals and aroused the interest of everyone in football, as he combined his work on the pitch with his profession in a bank. Once retired, he decided to oppose one of the vacant administrative positions in the Mobility service of the City of Burgos. Perhaps it was even harder to be the best score of the 560 applicants than their historic Cup. With the current format, of course, more images like yours will be seen again. “I am in favor of everything that allows the surprise and that the small team can bid against the big one,” he said in an interview in AS.ALBERTO IRANZO & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Cristiano Ronaldo scored the decisive goal of the 2010-11 Copa del Rey final.ALBERTO IRANZO (DAILY AS) 2018-19Ángel (Getafe), Rodrigo (Valencia) and Ekambi (Villarreal)5 2009-10Maxi Rodríguez (Athletic)5 2016-17Messi (Barcelona) and Ben Yedder (Seville)5 2010-11Messi (Barcelona) and Cristiano (Real Madrid)7 FELIX ORDONEZ & nbsp; (REUTERS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>The Mirandés reached the semifinals of the Copa del Rey in the 2011-12 season from Second Division B.FELIX ORDONEZ (REUTERS) 2017-18Víctor Curto (Real Murcia)6 2011-12Pablo Infante (Mirandés)6center_img 2014-15Iago Aspas (Sevilla) and Neymar (Barcelona)7 SeasonPlayersGoals Messi also reigns in the CupFor the star of Barcelona it is not impediment to play less minutes to crown the ranking of top scorer of the year in the KO tournament.

Also a year earlier, when he marked the same (5) that Luis Suarez, Munir (I was at Barça, now in Sevilla), Guidetti (from Celta to Hannover 96) and Negredo (from Valencia to Al-Nasr, from the United Arab Emirates). The ’10’ made a break in the 2014-15 campaign, giving facilities to his partner Neymar (milita in the PSG) and to Iago Aspas (reference of the Celtic, was pichichi of the Cup with the shirt of Seville). Both scored seven goals. It was a small lapse, since in 2013-14, Messi was also crowned as the top gunner of the competition. 2015-16Messi, Suárez and Munir (Barcelona); Guidetti (Celtic) and Negredo (Valencia)5 2012-13Diego Costa (Athletic)8 2013-14Messi (Barcelona)5 Cristiano’s only pichichi; the most scoring Costa …Cristiano Ronaldo (in Juventus), top scorer in the history of Real Madrid, conforms to a single Pichichi in the Copa del Rey. It was in the 2010-11 season, when he scored a great goal in the final to give the title to his team. In addition, that historic header also served to match the seven goals that Leo Messi had so far. Two years later, the Portuguese signed the same figure, but did not reach the eight of Diego Costa, the best brand of the whole decade. As with the Madrid player, the Spanish-Brazilian striker scored in the final to give the trophy to his Atletico. First of all, in 2009-10, Maxi Rodríguez was the top gunner of the KO tournament. The Argentine is 39 years old today and continues to play in his native country. Milita at Newell’s, where he has scored four goals so far this season.last_img read more
