I would prefer Player B
I will support Wests Tigers through thick or thin
I will be cheering when they win
I will love the Tigers Till I Die
With loyal supporters we will fly
I love the Tigers with my heart and soul
I just love the club as a whole
If the Wests Tigers believe
We will Unite, Commit and Achieve

What if I told you player B for 2017 only, is statistically the worst fullback in the key defensive areas for the season so far?

B is definitely Tedesco. A has got to be Hoppa. I can't think of anyone else that's missed at least 9 games since the start of 2016.

Player A is indeed Hopoate player B is Tedesco.

As stated in my previous post, Tedesco is actually the worst fullback for 2017 in those defensive stats. followed closely by Dugan and alex Johnson.

I incorporated 2016 because hoppa has missed most this year but the Tedesco stats are surprising and well down For 2017. Tedesco has had 5 kick defence errors of which 4 have led to tries this season and all his errors in his own 20 are actually from this year. Made zero in 2016

Because it's a sport all of its own. Just like Poker is considered a sport within some circles

So NSW is going to pick the worst fullback on paper.
Your right though, I've got him in my fantasy footy team and his value is dropping rapidly.
Maybe his mind is elsewhere or other teams have figured him out.

Tedescos attacking stats are down as well only 1 try and 4 try assists and 12 overall errors this season. Only stats for him that are up are run metres average 174 and tackle breaks 7.8 per game

SG...I think most clubs are pretty smart with Teddy these day, they don't rush up and keep a straight defensive line. Also the old second man sweep out the left side was flogged to death and predictable. As for his defence, he has missed tackles this year that last year he would have made with his eyes shut. He has also lost just a fraction of his pace and pace is his biggest weapon.

Maybe in a good side he will be a world beater, but I think he is coming back to the field just a tad

I assume A is Hopa & B Tedesco. I'd offer $500k for Teddy but offer him counselling in order to develop his character. I'd offer Hopa up to $800k per season but he has to play Sundays.

Hopper's just come out and said he is not going to play on Sunday go forward for any Club that signs him

He won't get a contract if that's the case. Well.... maybe at the knights...

The Broncos should chase Hoppa. They are about the only club that does not play Sundays.
