    Walker to Foran worth it? Or will Walker make a galant return at some point?

    Foran has never been fantasy relevant.

    What's the opinion on going for Foran/Norman as a HLF option for the bye rounds? Worth it or better to aim for a genuine keeper like Hunt or Johnson who'll only play one bye round but save you 2 trades?

    Foran is doing a lot better at the eels than manly. He gets to take on more of the responsibilities at the eels as dce is not there.

    Correct, but he's changing that slowl. Would favour Norman still though if it was me, doing the bulk of the kicking.

    Last game he scored a try, line break, line break assist plus 3 tackle busts. Good game!

    Sounds a good idea to me. Brought in Holland last week for the exact same reason, not to use Gutherson and got 50 for it. Thinking that hopefully Holland will be there for 2-3 more weeks until Chase Stanley is back and also maybe also for round 12 for when Josh Morris gets picked for Origin so making plenty of coin in the meantime.
    Also the Sunday games when Hopoate's off praying or whatever. What rounds do the Dogs play Sunday?

    Looks like a trap to me. Go for it though Liverpool. Trust your gut.

    I'm doing Woods/Saifiti to DeBelin/Asiata. DeBelin looks a solid super-premium atm, but it's a bit of a gamble at his price. Asiata I am hoping can get good minutes during the origin period (rd12/18), he's getting sweet FA atm.

    Mitchell to Reiradara is something I will look at in the coming weeks. Will be wanting Semi over the MBR's. Jennings is making this tough though.

    Im going to keep Walker this week, not as pressing as mulling over Woods and SST replacements.

    If i upgrade one of them i can still run Parcell, BLaw, Whitehead and Cartwright as reserves

    Foran has scored poorly against good teams and well against poor teams (my opinion).

    He averaged around 30 in his first two games. These were against the Cows and the Dogs.
    He averaged around 45-50 in his next three games. Penrith, Raiders and Tigers.

    I am most definitly not convinced enough to be trading him in. It's a big risk especially as his next five games include the Storm, second games against the Cows and Dogs and a Souths team with Reynolds back.

    I think that's why I'd favour Norman. He hasn't lit up yet and still averaging 45, minus his injured 1st round.

    I've never owned Semi, this year might be the year.

    That's true, he does seem a bit injury prone at times too.

    So even if Stanley's back next week (and I doubt he will be) Holland has 4 weeks out of the next 6, including a bye, to make some coin.

    Is this the first time that a team will have three different sets of brothers in the same side?
