    Looking at these trades over the next few weeks, after the first round of trading will have 250k approx remaining

    Well the BE for Lolohea is (12) and Bird is (23) so makes a lot of sense to bring in now.

    Pre Bye Trades

    Can't plan further than 2 weeks too much as that would require a static team with no injuries...... I don't know what that is haha
    So leading up to the byes, will get bye friendly players or under priced keepers (who don't play origin) and these will remain in my side permanently for rest of year.POD's where possible as well
    This still leaves a huge pool of players and means the trades I burn now won't be used later (failing injury).
    Cash out players will only be for Origin 'fill in' players over origin so can avoid AE later on.

    Target Pool - (For remaining weeks leading up to RD 12 byes)
    Hooker = Peats,Rein
    FRF = Graham,Tolman,Bromwich
    2RF = Frizell,Mau,BThompson,Harris,Mannering
    HLF = BHunt,Norman,AReynolds,DCE,Johnson,Mbye
    CTR/WFB = Radradra,Munster,Aitken,Lolohea,Bird


    Due to the injuries earlier on in the season I can't afford to bring players in and out as planned, so this way I should hopefully have the best scorers I can put on the field and ride this strat to the end.

    It is what it is, and not much I can do about it. Going all in and hoping for a bit of luck going forward as well

    What do people think?

    Im with you on bringing in Lolohea #StandWithBoozecluez, except im doing it for Saifiti most likely with a Aubbs swap, he has earnt his right to play in my 2RF rotation Razz

    Next weeks trades are looking good, i have Munster and am more than happy with his scoring considering he hasnt scored a try since ive owned him.

    Lolohea seems like a decent option, either in Halves/Fullback will score alright and any price rise is a bonus really.
    With the way Fullbacks get 'extra' points, then can see him averaging minimum 35-40 so could possibly be a keeper too.. Early days bro



    Can see the potential of stacking Fullbacks in the back (WFB/CTR). Central playing forwards with decent minutes in the FRF/2RF.. Should hopefully give me some consistency

    ROUND 8 TRADES

    Cameron Cullen
    Cash out for Walker, may get some game time as bonus with injuries

    Cameron Munster
    Has scored well without scoring a try in recent games. Will be a keeper in the back and has decent base stats.
    Like for Like replacement for RTS

    Will give Lolohea a week at the back, Cartwright on final notice though will take him week by week.
    Can't fit Bird into my team at the moment but is definitely on radar

    It must really burn that Munster is more expensive than RTS. Solid trades though.

    Haha cheers mate.

    Looking back I paid 415k for him so lost 59k on the swap though he was a keeper, not an investment.
    Got some solid scores minus his injured low ielast game so can't really complain.
    I think Munster will be a decent replacement, but means I have even less reason to watch the Warriors currently.

    I was chopping and changing with bringing in Ben hunt or a gun half, but all scenarios ended with having to play gutherson at fullback so this means I avoid that. TMM may go alright given he may be trying to prove a point to stay in the side so has more upside this week.

    Will see how we go

    Good trades, Although keep an eye on team lists as Walker apparently might be getting a run and should eek out some more cash..Munster is the new age Dugan breaking tackles at will moving sideways

    ROUND 8 RESULTS

    Captain Cam proving his worth with another big score and contributed to the great result this week.
    Wasn't confident this week as had a lot of cash put aside for possible big upgrades this week but didn't matter too much in the end.
    Injuries from TMM,Grant, fumbles from Mitchell and Parcell/Taylor still out injured and it was going to be a roller coaster week

    The trade in of Munster proved to be a clutch move in the end and Cullen did his job as a cash out option with a bonus of scoring ok as well.

    Overall things worked out pretty good, and pushing close to the top 1000 so onwards and upwards

    As long as the injuries stay away then it gives me more options to finish my team ready for the upcoming bye weeks Smile


    Can we get a new one of these mate?

    I must say I am proud to be ahead of the mighty panda nation, though it's early in the season mate. still a loooooong way to go and state of origin to come.



    Sharks vs Broncos this weekend too, should be plenty of blood left on the field after this one I reckon

    Haha love it

    Dropping faster than NZ Warriors Fullbacks?
    Dropping faster than Dragons players after a tackle?
    Dropping faster than 'The Moles' credibility?
