    Who is your 18th man mate, and have you got a horrid AE hanging around or can you loophole if the chance arises?

    Errr the only other player in my squad with a green dot next to his name is Mitchell Neutral

    You are laughing then for a loophole; unless you have no trades left?

    Haha I know...only time it will work well is if Mitchell plays early in the round and has a good one, then I'm all set to loophole. But cant be arsed wasting a trade on him to an npr until the final 2 or 3 rounds I think. Don't want to go 5 rounds with only one trade.

    I can't find anything mate. No genuine source but was on Legends earlier who are VERY similar to our group and very reliable. It then ended up on pages but I can't find anything concrete out there. A guy is claiming Fifita left CBUS on crutches and another is saying he saw Fifita at the hospital getting scans.

    I'm starting to think troll.

    I've got 3 trades left and have Fualola lurking. Considering wasting the trade getting him out but will wait till Round 23/24. Alwso have Latrell and Turbo which could ruin a loophole but not odds on to like Fualola is.

    Storm vs Bunnies, don't think Cam is the best pick for C this week. Storm will probably be 40 up after 60 minutes and Smith gets an early sponge bath.

    After I cash out Nathan Green i'll have 149K and 5 trades.
    16, 17 and 18th men are currently DCE, Hunt and JTurbo.
    Who is the more urgent trade out?
    For DCE or Hunt i'll bring in Johnson.
    For JTurbo i can bring in James, Gallen or Harris.
    Of the remainder, who gets 18th man?
    I also have Gutherson as 19th man and cover in every position.

    "AS WESTS Tigers players gathered in a huddle at the end of training, there was a brief applause and few slaps on the back for little-known playmaker Jack Littlejohn. The blink-and-you-miss-it gesture hinted Littlejohn — not club favourite"

    This weeks Carter Award goes to another big name, Corey Parker, he has won almost everything there is to win and now adds this award to the list, know doubt this will take pride of place on his mantel piece even above a Premiership and all his MOM honours. Congratulations Corey.

    Don't know if anyone heard but Ben Henry has announced he will retire at season's end.
    Poor bloke, was a key leader in the under 20s and has just been plagued by bad knee injuries.
    Was a real talent and I hope the game has an on-going place for him.

    "In other injury news coming from the Titans game, Andrew Fifita had the coaching and medical staff concerned after experiencing discomfort from a lower leg problem immediately following the match.

    Fifita attended a nearby hospital for observation and to undergo some tests, but in good news for the Sharks ahead of the big games upcoming, his condition significantly improved overnight and he is expected to be named for the Raiders match and to take his place in the team on Saturday."

    Fifita out would hurt those with lack of depth in their teams... which would include myself this week as Barnett is my back-up option

    5 left Shocked

    I think SJ is a must have, but to me Jurbo would be the bloke to get cut over DCE and BHunt. Can you DPP your way around that? I would be bringing Gallen in for Jurbo regardless and finding another way to get SJ.
