    Milchy's sheet doesn't have mins played for him though for whatever reason

    I read some Fantasy articles on NRL.com on cheapie traps to avoid and Josh Aloiai was one of them. Am I a fool for deciding I'm going to back the guy anyway to keep his spot even when Halatau returns? Woods and even Jason Taylor himself praised his work ethic and they even mention that he's more than capable of playing in the middle so if he has a good first game I could imagine him holding his spot over Buchanan.
    If not him I've got Carter, Pauli x2, Copley and Hymel Hunt to consider. None of which inspire me with much confidence in their cash making ability.

    Vs

    Woods + Copley (Would be starting centre) = 80 points? (50 + 30)

    Tempted for option 1.

    I'd go more around

    Napa + Croker (40 + 40) (Napa started FRF 14 games for Avg of 39.07, season avg was 39.167 across 50.5 mins)

    Woods + Copley - (55/60 + 25/30)

    so option 2 (personal opinion) Woods avg was 51.6 if you ignore his 3 when injured, but he also started last season better than he ended it

    I too look like running the risk of Benry and Greeny, risky as hell and no good for the ticker but allows me to have CS9 and Seggy ( this could end badly before it even starts).

    Who to Captain Smith or Parker ?

    Running both - think first time EVER with Parker (I was a fantasy noob)
    I'm still torn. Only get to watch tonights game this weekend so tempted to put it on C just so I can cheer him on (instead of wishing he dropped the ball every touch)

    What is everybody "weakest" position. For me its the centres. I have a back 3 of Inglis, Gordon + Tedesco, so the centres have taken the hit.

    Yep, its making me second guess Rochow, there are other options there but those two cheapies seem the best way to go. (if you have benry and green etc in centres)

    Is there a reason why people (on here) think that Auva'a will somehow make it back into centre spot in a few rounds? Surely if Maguire is selecting Hymel Hunt for round 1 he is the preferred player, the time for experimenting is done? I mean the coach has seen all their trial form and all their training sessions. What makes people so sure about Auva'a/or unsure about Hunt that Maguire hasn't seen? I'll be trading in whichever one is listed on the team sheet 1hr before kick off.

    It is a rolling lock out isn't it. i.e you can trade in and out any player who's game/team has not yet kicked off.

    You will regret that mate. I would at least get a 2nd main f/b & npr Mitchell as he's playing on the wing so his chances of a good score are low.
