Fantasy League debrief
6 Sep 2023
Fantasy favourite George Williams was the star of the show once again during Warrington's dominant display against Castleford Tigers in Round 24. A brace of tries, an assist and 5 tackle busts meant Williams ended on an impressive 94 points and takes his season total to 1382.
Williams' Warrington teammate Paul Vaughan was another top performer this week in Paul Vaughan thanks to a huge 93 point return. Vaughan also chipped in with a brace of tries along with 12 an impressive tackle busts to cement his position as a premium Fantasy front rower.

It's a Warrington Wolves hat-trick in this week's top performers with flying full-back Matt Dufty returning 85 points. Like Williams and Vaughan, Dufty was also able to grab cross for 2 tries, along with 2 try assists and 9 tackle busts.
How many Warrington players do you have in your Fantasy line up?
A first half head injury forced Hull KR's Elliot Minchella to depart the field half way through the first half in Round 24. Subsequently, the in-form loose forward managed to score just 17 points for his owners.
Adam Keighran was amongst the underperformers in Round 24 after the Dragons fell to defeat at the hands of the Robins. Keighran was unable to have an influence on proceedings and with no notable contributions, the Australian managed to return a below par 20 points.
Despite his side earning a big win against the high-flying Dragons, Hull KR's Ryan Hall had a disappointing Fantasy performance. Hall was unable to get in on the action or cross the whitewash and scored just 28 points in Round 24.
Elliot Minchella will be out of action for Hull KR's trip to The John Smith's Stadium in Round 25 due to a head injury he sustained against the Dragons. His return date is still to be confirmed so it would be wise to transfer Minchella out of your side.
