5 Supercoach PODs for Round 7

Image Rights - Daily Telegraph

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. Chumpie got 2 and a half last week, with Fusitua scoring 44 in a losing side (half) and Gallen's injury robbing me of a certainty. In saying that, let's look at the 5 Supercoach PODs for round 7. 

1. Jazz Tevaga - 50.5  Average (NZ Warriors, 0.5% ownership, HOK) 

This is most definitely one who could make you some cash in the long run if he keeps getting selected as more of a second-row player for the Warriors. His output on the field has been fantastic, and his Supercoach scores have benefitted as well. This will be the only week you can jump on him before the risk outweighs the reward ($343k), but he could be a good buy to then upgrade to a keeper like Smith or Cook. 

2. David Nofoaluma - 43.7 Average (Wests Tigers, 0.8% ownership, CTW)

Usually, I try to avoid those with an average around the low 40's or less, but the upside for the man we call Nofo is that he is an offloading machine. If he can't get an offoad off, he'll bust through tackles like a man possessed. He was only able to rack up 35 points last week, but that was with 7 tackle busts and 22 points in hit ups. All it takes is one offload at the right time or a busted tackle close to the line and he can ton up. Considering the Tigers play Newcastle this week, he could be a good shot. His price is a worry, but he play round 13. 

3. Jarrod Wallace - 52.7 Average (Gold Coast, 0.9% ownership, FRF)

The Titans front-rower is having his minutes increased slowly, and his base stats are seeing a lovely upwards trajectory as a result of it. Do not let his average fool you, as he has a 58.7 average over the last 3 rounds. A base stats machine with a knack to get the ball out the back, one offload could see Michael Gordon screaming through for a Wallace line break assist. He could see some success against a desperate Cowboys defense this week, so if you have the spare 500k he is worth a shot. Speaking of Gordon...

4. Michael Gordon - 56.5 Average (Gold Coast, 2.1% ownership, CTW/FLB)

Does anyone else remember the days when Michael Gordon and Jarrod Croker were must haves in the CTW position? Those days seem to be coming back, with Gordon having a resurgence in form this year. He has the kicking tee on the Gold Coast, and he is getting pretty involved in the Titans attack this year. It is an interesting game this week against the Cowboys, but they have stuggled defensively and we could see Gordon combine with Anthony Don for a few try assists this weekend. That's assuming he doesn't go over himself.

5. Peni Terepo - 50.3 Average (Parramatta, 3.5% ownership, 2RF/FRF)

I have almost resigned to the fact that Parramatta aren't going anywhere this year, but Peni Terepo has been pretty good since coming into the Eels line up. At only 311k, he could be a downgrade option for the likes of Pangai/Lodge/Alvaro if owned, and he will make some money as well as play round 13. He plays at lock this week, which could see a rise in the minutes he gets. Averaging at close enough to a point a minute, he could be in line for 60+ if he plays like last week.
