Higgo does the maths on the ruck changes
Higgo revealed the mathematical secret to the changes to ruck scoring on Superfooty on Thursday.
Some key excerpts from his ground breaking study:
“The inexperienced among us will gloss over the rucks and spend most of our time concentrating on the other, more attractive, positions. This is a grave mistake. Crucial to the success of your SuperCoach team in 2015 is — at the very least — a rudimentary understanding of a changed scoring dynamic.”
“..central to this understanding is a key hypothesis — almost every ruckman will go into the new season overpriced due to the new scoring system. In fact, only one of the top 10 averaging ruckman from 2014 is forecast to hold his value if the new scoring system is applied to their 2014 statistics. That man is Sam Jacobs.”
“..convert this to a monetary value and I would suggest that Minson will head into season 2015 overvalued by $43,500”
