5 Supercoach PODs for Round 2

It's Thursday, which means that the players are getting ready for their games this weekend and Supercoach players are frantically trading to get the edge in their leagues. It's pretty early to be thinking about the players that we could see as point of differences (PODs), but it may be of help with a lot of teams having the same players to start the season off with. There's a few players this week who could just amount to brilliant POD's for players, so let's have a look at the 5 potential PODs for round 2 of the Supercoach season.

1. Tim Lafai (St George, 2.3% ownership, $575,400)

Lafai was a part of the duds from last week with a shocking performance against the Broncos, however he has a great chance to rack up a good score against the Sharks. A solid score isn't out of the question, with Lafai either throwing out rocks of diamonds depending on the day. It will also depend on how the Sharks line up, with the side having Aaron Gray and Ricky Leutele going to see plenty of action. If Lafai is on that side, I expect to see a try or two going his way.

2. Aaron Woods (Canterbury, 3.5% ownership, $557,100)

Aaron Woods had a solid game in round one, with all of his points coming off base or attacking base stats. A score of 65 is nothing to sneeze at considering how the round panned out, and if his only stats that weren't pure base stats were offloads, then you can't help but get excited at seeing his back at his Supercoach best. The price isn't horrific considering the cap this year, so you might be able to get him in. 

3. Brian Kelly (Manly Warringah, 0.8% ownership, $397,800)

One of the best cheapies from last year is priced relatively well considering the cap, and a score of 76 did well to help the cause. A good chunk of his points were attacking stats (49), but he is coming up against a Parramatta edge defense who can be fantastic on occasion, and downright awful on others. At only 0.8%, if you have the money to spend you could definitely justify bringing in the Manly centre. 

4. Ryan James (Gold Coast, 4.1% ownership, $530,100)

60 points in pure base stats against a rampant Canberra attack and at a price that won't break the bank if you want to make the trade. The Warriors have been known as a little bit of a cotton-fodder defense so you wouldn't be amiss in bringing in the attacking threat on the Titans edge. Assuming that he can get across the line for the Titans, you might be able to expect the first century for a forward from Ryan James.

5. David Fusitua (New Zealand, 1.9% ownership, $375,700)

David Fusitua is a try scoring machine, there is no other why to describe him. He is a threat on the ground and in the air, with a Titans defense that concedes points as often as college students drink cheap alcohol. With less than 2% of ownership and a good scoring record against the Titans, as well as a price that is considered as mid-range in today's game, you could take a chance on the Warriors winger.
