Then they move to another team thinking they will bring premiership success all on their own. They weren’t ready this year, but they’re every chance to go deeper in 2021. Barring a role-change their averages shouldn’t change much. They’ll pick up Jamarra Ugle-Hagen at the draft this year, a key position prospect that they desperately need. Mitch Wallis in the forward line was a revelation. Selected as pick 7 in 2018, he played every match in 2019 mixing his time between the backline, forward line and midfield for an average of 77ppg. Obviously the Bulldogs team will be hard to break in to given Mitch Wallis appears to be fit again, but if he has his father’s ability to find the ball, fantasy football is his jam! From what we know, more than one ruckman could be on the move this off-season, so the Dogs should be looking closely at them.

Zac Bailey is going to be an absolute star and Jack Payne, although only in by necessity, performed admirably in a preliminary final, which is experience money cannot buy. Not bad. 11pm: Everything is in place for them to thrive in 2021. At the Roosters getting paid 15.5k per week is enough money surely plus staying in a happy club with success, however greedy players like Mitchell want to rob the rest of the team of money and demands 20k plus per week.
