NRL 2021: Gold Coast Titans deny salary cap breach over alleged David Fifita cover-up

  NRL 2021: Gold Coast Titans deny salary cap breach over alleged David Fifita cover-up The Gold Coast Titans are confident that they are salary cap compliant despite reports emerging of a cover-up involving new recruit David Fifita. It was reported by News Corp that the NRL was unaware that a payment had been made towards the family involved in an incident involving Fifita across the Christmas break. Fifita was alleged to have trespassed in a Gold Coast property on December 27, detained by police before being released after extensive questioning.

Throw a handful of guns, a bunch of money-making cheapies and a sprinkling of PODs together and you've got the key ingredients for a champion Supercoach team.

What are PODs we hear you ask?

PODs, or point of difference, are players that help you differentiate yourself from other teams. They're often the difference between winning and losing.

Seemingly every player will start with Nathan Cleary, Cameron Munster and Charlie Staines.

However, it's often those that have little ownership to start the season that makes the difference at the end.

In 2020, the likes of David Nofoaluma, David Klemmer and James Fisher-Harris started the season with minimal ownership, finishing the season in the top five for their position.

BRISBANE BRONCOS 2021 CAPTAIN: TBA 2020 CAPTAIN: Alex Glenn LEADERSHIP GROUP: N/A ANALYSIS: No captain has been named for the 2021 season, with new coach Kevin Walters taking his time. Alex Glenn is the incumbent and will likely be the front-runner, but they may opt for a younger player such as Patrick Carrigan to take the reins. Andrew McCullough could have been a potential leader, but he appears set to join the Dragons.

The 2021 NRL season is right around the corner, which can mean only one thing … it’s almost KFC SuperCoach Draft time! The NRL pre-season giveth and it taketh away so we have updated our Cheapie Bible with the line put through a couple of popular picks and others promoted to 'Buy' status.

The 2021 NRL season will be the 114th season of professional rugby league in Australia and the 24th season run by the National Rugby League .

And to make matters easier for you, we've compiled a list of this season's stand out point of difference players.

NOTE: To be classified as a 'POD', all players must have 10% or lower ownership at the time of writing.

Hookers

Jayden Brailey ($356,600)

2020 stats: 115 points at 57.5

Ownership: 8%

Brailey had an interrupted 2020 campaign, suffering an ACL injury after round two of the 2020 season. Brailey is underpriced as a result, coupled with limited playing time at the Sharks in 2018 and 2019. With Connor Watson set to shift to lock, Brailey looks set to play 80 minutes, which makes him an interesting prospect heading into the season. He will also take further responsibility, named co-captain alongside Daniel Saifiti.

Jazz Tevaga (HOK/2RF) ($552,900)

2020 stats: 749 points at 62.4

I want more for the NRLW in 2021

  I want more for the NRLW in 2021 In what was an exceptionally difficult year for all of us, the NRL managed admirably in 2020. Not only was the NRL the first Australian domestic sporting competition to return to screens during COVID-19 (thanks Peter V’landys), but in a year when there was significant pressure to reduce spending and potentially a temptation to cut costs across women’s sport, the NRL reaffirmed its commitment to the NRLW.

Ownership: 3%

Another player hampered by injury in 2020, Tevaga missed the opening eight games of the season after a knee injury. However, he produced some solid scores on his return, finishing with an average of 62, the seventh-highest for a hooker. He averages fifth for base points and with a lack of depth at hooker after injuries to Wayne Egan and Karl Lawton, he could be set for big minutes in 2021.

Front-Rowers

Junior Paulo ($570,100)

2020 stats: 1287 points at 64.3

Ownership: 9%

Paulo had a breakout 2020 campaign, earning himself NSW selection after a barnstorming season for the Eels. This translated into Supercoach, with just David Klemmer producing more points at the FRF position. Eels coach Brad Arthur has also indicated that the off-season boxer could see an increase in minutes with the faster style of play, even close to an 80-minute player. If he plays anywhere near that number, he will be a must-have.

Christian Welch ($453,500)

2020 stats: 819 points at 51.2

Ownership: 9%

Welch is one of the players set to benefit after the departure of Tino Fa'asuamaleaui, due for a big increase in minutes. Welch showed in 2020 that he is a borderline keeper when he plays over 50 minutes, averaging 64 over his seven games. That puts him in line with Paulo, with the injury to Dale Finucane all but assuring his spot in the starting line-up.

Addin Fonua-Blake – ($528,000)

2020 stats: 894 points at 59.6

Ownership: 8%

Fonua Blake will spearhead a new-look Warriors side, having joined from the Manly Sea Eagles in the off-season. AFB had the 12th highest average for front-rowers in 2020, which was dragged down after a late send-off against the Knights in round 10 and a PCL injury against his new club in round 13. When you take those games out, his average sky-rockets to 63.5, making him someone to watch as he gets used to life at the Warriors.

Second rows

Tohu Harris ($613,000)

2020 stats: 1384 points at 69.2

Ownership: 8%

For some reason, Tohu Harris never seems to receive SC love early in the season despite being a tried and tested gun. Harris was the leading point-scorer for second-rowers and seventh overall, amassing just under 1400 points. Despite this, only 8% have picked him for 2021, with the likes of Crichton, Matterson and Fifita favoured over the 29-year-old. If you are looking for a consistent, reliable scorer, Harris should be one of the first picked.

Keaon Kolomatangi ($301,2000)

2020 stats: 374 points at 34

Ownership : 5%

Kolomatangi is a player whose ownership will rise when the teams are announced on Tuesday as he looks set to secure a spot on the edge, as he appeared to confirm to Sporting News. Regardless of whether he starts or not, the 22-year-old is set for a big increase in minutes, positioning himself as an under-rated cash cow heading into the season.

Andrew Davey ($336,600)

2020 stats: 304 points at 38

Ownership: 6%

Similarily to Kolomatangi, Davey looks like an interesting cash cow if he manages to get decent minutes. Arriving from the Eels, Davey will battle Jack Gosiewski for a starting role, however, should see an increase in the 20-25 minute stints that he filled in 2020. When he was given a chance to start in the final two rounds, he produced scores of 60 and 68, making him a near-must have if he nabs that starting role.

Halfbacks and Five-Eighths

Chanel Harris-Tavita (HFB/5/8) - $425,900

2020 stats: 625 points at 48.1

Ownership: 7%

Keeping with the Warriors theme, Harris-Tavita could emerge as one of the breakout stars of the 2021 season given the new rule changes. CHT finished the season with a bang, averaging 70 points in his final five games of the season. He is set to retain the goal-kicking in 2021, and with the return of Ken Maumalo, Euan Aitken and David Fusitua, he is set for an increase in attacking/creative opportunities.

Luke Keary (HFB/5/8) - $521,200

2020 stats: 1059 points at 58.8

Ownership: 6%

Keary is a very inconsistent player when it comes to Supercoach, however, he will be looking to bounce back after the Roosters disappointing end to the 2020 season. With a shift to halfback, Keary is set to take on more responsibility in attack and looks set for a return to his 2020 form, where he averaged over 61 points per game.

Centres

Jake Averillo (CTW/5/8) - $331,200

2020 stats: 486 points at 37.4

Trent Barrett has all but confirmed that Averillo will partner Kyle Flanagan in the halves should he overcome an elbow injury. This makes Averillo an interesting prospect, who seemed to thrive towards the back-end of the season. When playing 80 minutes, the 20-year-old averaged 65 points, however, this was all whilst playing centre. It will be interesting to see how he adapts to the new role with a limited pre-season.

Brian Kelly ($489,900)

2020 stats: 901 points at 56.3

Ownership: 4%

Kelly is probably one of the most underrated players in the NRL and is set to shine in a Titans side with finals aspirations. Despite going off with injury in round 17, Kelly still managed to average 65 points in the final five games that he played, leaving him under-priced and a key target for anyone looking to start the year with a strong backline

Blake Ferguson ($352,900)

2020 stats: 757 points at 39.8

Ownership: 3%

The once Supercoach gun struggled in 2020, with his try-scoring drought leading him to average below 40. However, with Ferguson in a contract year, he will be looking to get off to a strong start with the Eels having one of the weaker starts to the season on paper. He also consistently has one of the largest base stats for a centre, finishing in the top 15 despite his disappointing season.

Fullback

Roger Tuivasa-Sheck ($520,200)

2020 stats: 1057 points at 58.7

Ownership: 7%

In his swansong, Roger Tuivasa-Sheck will be keen to send the NZ faithful off on a high before he heads to rugby union . RTS has been consistently one of the best fullbacks across Supercoach, finishing as the fourth-highest scorer in 2019.

AJ Brimson ($651,600)

2020 stats: 662 points at 73.6

Ownership: 6%

Brimson was one of the main factors in the Titans late charge in 2020, earning himself Origin selection. In five out of nine games, he scored over 85, leaving him with the fourth-highest average for a fullback. If the Titans continue their form in 2021, expect Brimson to score high and he looms as a great replacement for the injured Kalyn Ponga and Tom Trbojevic.

Some bold and not so bold predictions for the 2021 NRL season .
Ahead of the NRL season kick-off, here are a handful of my predictions. The Roosters and Storm will begin to slip The tail end of last year showed the first cracks from the Roosters in years and it will only get worse. Some of their key players are starting to age and there’s a chance they could be playing their last year in the NRL. Jake Friend, Jared Waerea-Hargreaves and the Morris boys will all show signs of ageing this year. One or two injuries in key positions could see them struggle. I expect them to finish in the bottom half of the eight, maybe around six to eight.
