    I'd go Ferguson and Mansour. Although the other advantage of Teddy is he plays round 12 and Ferguson and Mansour don't. Who's your 3rd WFB?

    Barba is 3rd choice, feeney would move to bench

    Coin toss complete. Mann in, Gordon out. For the next hour at least haha, until I get cold feet and go for the safe points.

    I've gone with Mann but mostly because I'm about $10k short of Mansour. Still reckon Mann is solid value though

    Why Auva'a? He's not even named in 17. It's not out of the question in 1-2 weeks you have only one starting centre
    Had auva'a since the start but seems hunt has his spot. So he is prob first to go. I'm stuck in 2011 bit old school hate spending money on the backs.

    Well if a league 1 coach has picked him that's good enough for me Smile

    EDIT for context: forgot to reference jstands reply re mann

    minichello has a supercoach article on the DT and reckons that evans will play 50 mins and aubbs will play 80. also he rates leuluai as one of the hardest runners/hitters at the club. not sure how much he would actually know about the minutes thing

    theres pretty much F all else available at CTR. i have henry and auva'a as my NPR's. other options are put curtis scott there and wait/hope he gets a run (tho munster is still to come into the storm backline) or move gutho to CTR NPR and hope abbey gets a legitimate run...

    i reckon auva'a has the best chance of those three of playing sooner rather than later. unless abbey is a late inclusion.. but i need to know that before the eels game kicks off (as i'd have to move gutho). PITA! would of been handy if robinson named mitchell in the CTR's so he could of gotten DPP

    Last year where did Peats end up going when De gois came on? Did he always go to Lock or did he spend some time in the 2nd row?

    I've had Mann in my team for a while but since my side is basically settled I've realised I haven't really focused to much on my wfb starting combo. So which do you reckon is better

    (a) Mansour, Mann, Barba + 61k or
    (b) Ferguson, Gordon, Barba + 21k

    I'm currently on (a) as it seems to have more attacking potential while (b) has Ferguson playing in a new position so he might take time to adapt. Also with Foran out it might affect Gordon's timing. Thoughts.

    I think Fergy and Mansour both averaged 35ish last year, although all going well they should average better this year, so 70-80 maybe. Teddy averages 50ish, meaning aslong as Feeney plays he'd have to average 20-30, plus going with Teddy means you'll get the occasional BIG score. Definitely a toss up whichever way you go, just depends how much faith you have in Feeney.

    Yeah agree thats why I find it hard to drop auva'a. Worst case scenario a spot gets killed off in a week position. You cant make money everywhere and I got to save trades this year. Last 2 years been in the top 100 only to run out of trades and drop away

    Easy to go with the 2 steady scores of mansour and Ferguson, mansour could go big too, plus fergy dpp, but as you say teddy is teddy, there's big and there's bigger. Hopefully feeney doesn't disappoint.

    I really need to "step away" from the computer. Dont know if im overthinking now but second guessing my teddy selection. Just thinking no Farah removes there main playmaker who is also a foil for his combination with Moses and Brooks when hes back? Tigers have the best run they can get(for them) over the first few rounds but that coincides with Farah missing. That extra cash could o some nice upgrades and maybe even give me a centre position a little more surety.

    I personally don't think Mansour will regain his 2014 form. Didn't look anything like it in the trial I watched. Was only one game I know. I'd say option B is much safer, but if you're a gambling man then A could go great, or shit.

    This talk of Mann has me trying this out
    A. Gordon + Taupau +7k
    B. Mann + Merrin + 0k

    Rest of WFB is Barba, Feeney, Mitchell, Gutherson
