    Isn't Tyrone Roberts out this week for the Titans? If so Taylor might do all the kicking? Could actually get more points than usual?

    yeah i was considering not trading at all and just playing taylor and hoping he racks up 20 odd tackles (and hopefully doesnt miss too many) + 20pts in kick metres

    Just saw Fox Sport news saying that Lichaa trained with main squad with a heavily strapped knee, whilst Garvey trained with the NSW Cup squad Bang FML.

    I need to know how solid the J Turbo outage info is .................

    Is Garvey to Parcell a rash move?

    Im struggling to move a player with a BE of -20 quickly. But, It seems Parcel has better Job security, particularly after this week.

    Its seems sideways for the sake of points this round (if Garvey plays)

    Think I might hold off and hope that at the very least he gets some time at back of game. Then lock in the milking session next week.

    Don't see it as rash myself. Technically not sideways because Garvey potentially doesn't get anymore game time and Parcell potentially plays big minutes for the rest of the year. Looks like we need to move Garvey next week anyway. The other side of the coin is to hold Garvey a week to see if Lichaa gets through it.

    had a few options to trade out but decided to kick Carter to the curb so thats 1 less red dot I have to worry about next week. However I might reverse it if he is named to start tonight.

    It also means I have 1 less ill disciplined knob in my team.

    Okay okay I've narrowed down this shit-show to two choices with the news of Lichaa being a late inclusion.  

    Option 1
    Garvey to Parcell.  
    Carter to B Law.  
    Hold the million dollar man for at least a week, shift Barba to HLF, Mitchell into my starting WFB and just pray nobody I want in the halves goes up in price too much.

    Option 2  
    Carter for B Law.
    DCE to Mbye.
    Hold Garvey and pray it's just smoke and mirrors in classic Des style training Garvey in NSW Cup.

    Just how risky is the potential AE to my scores if Garvey doesn't play and is it more than the points I'd miss by moving Barba to HLF and not replacing DCE? Not to mention if Garvey doesn't play it'll be more than 6k swap to someone like Parcell the next week. Thoughts please and thank you

    I'm all the shop with trade thoughts at the moment. A couple of pieces of feedback would be much appreciated. With no trades my current team will be:

    Smith
    Graham, McGuire,
    Surgess, Whitehead, Merrin (JSaifiti)
    Walker, Hastings (Jnik, Taylor)
    Gutherson, Clawrence
    Barba, Gordan, RTS (Mitchell)

    NPR: Peats, J Turbo, Carter, Auva'a, Leuluai, Bhana, Green, Feeney
    $125k cash

    I've decided to continue holding Peats. My thoughts are:

    Option 1: JNik - Bowen and Carter - JDB
    Option 2: Green - HHunt (5k left over)
    Option 3: no trades

    I'm not sure if I asked this particular question, but what is Pulu's job security like? Sorry if answered previously Very Happy

    Will edit this.

    Bowen vs Auva'a vs Pulu.....looking to bring one in....which would have more upside?

    I have decided to bring BLaw in over JDB.

    Sounds like Garvey is a trade out next week if not this, so need to save the cash to afford an upgrade. 
    Both JDB and BLaw should make money. I do have some thoughts that JDB is about to become this season's Mannering, but if I bring him in now I think I hurt the rest of my team too much.

    Now to decide what to do about DCE.

    I realise that but if I find out Sunday morning I'll have a few options.
