    Yea he should come fine, he is surely one of those players who scores 2 70+'s in a row after some low scoring games

    i think no luke has hurt his scores, but the warriors played so poor last weekend against a team that forced 6 drop outs. so they didnt have much going on in attack.

    i will likely play him this week. more concerned about hunt against the storm. i have played him the past two weeks and been rewarded with tries, but i think luck is about to run out. (ill still roll the dice)
    who will you go SJ to, another half or another position? the top halves are an interesting bunch with norman, pearce, cleary and walker making 4 of the top 5. no one woulda guessed that at the start

    All of this years Halves have had bad games, better to stick with SJ as hes still the most likely one to go good.

    Unbelievably, Cleary has been outstanding. Averaging just over 55, and really only 1 bad game (fantasy-wise)

    Plus last two games are at home for SJ. Warriors still a chance to make the 8, need to win last two games and Panthers and then Cowboys to beat the Titans.

    992 for the week which seems about average for my rank considering I moved up less than 10 places.

    2 trades left for 2 weeks.

    Can't believe there are only two weeks left before finals!

    Off to Townsville this Thursday. Can't wait for some sun and warmth.

    Yaaay cracked 1000 for the first time. Final trades are in - Gutherson cashed out for Chambers and Teddy out for Ryan James. De Belin was the one who got away this year. The crucial mistake was trading in Gallen after origin instead of DB. I would call trading out Mansour before origin 3 a mistake but he had half a season to make himself a keeper and took way too long to get his act together. Will have to farewell God from a distance. Miss you already Corey!

    You are right, when the team can't hold the ball, not much the playmaker can do. If I were to trade it would be to Walker so I could go Barba to Croker. Seems like I'm just looking to use my last two trades for no reason. Will probably just stick with Barba to Walker.

    I have Hunt too, I think he'll put in a good effort this week. The try scoring is a worry, but I don't think I could not play him.

    Nice. Was thinking perhaps doing the same too. Guth or Hurrell downgrade then Barba to James or Bodene.

    My back 5 scored 103 between them  Lol

    @Filthridden where are you staying in Townsville?

    The Godfather Random is up there but it would be hard to track him down, he has to move from house to house on a weekly basis to avoid assassination attempts.

    Sorry if this has been asked before, but does anybody know how the actual scoring works? E.g what constitutes a tackle in fantasy, if there are 4 in the tackle do all 4 get a point? or is it the 2 at marker get the points?

    Thanks

    99% sure all involved in the tackle get a point, whether that's 1 person or 6.

    In VS

    My back 3 = 58
    My entire backline = 138 (A.Taylor 0 didn't help)

    Absolutely Cleary has been outstanding, the buy of the season. But you can't trade SJ for Cleary because you already have him. And if you don't have Cleary well you just don't know how to fantasy Sauce

    Just wondering why Isaah Yeo doesn't get talked about more as an option in the centres?

    Is there something missing that I don't know...I'm tempted to use my last trade to trade Teddy for him this week but not sure if someone else would be better

    Team before trade:
    Smith Friend
    Fifita Surgess JGraham JBrom
    DeBelin Manners Merrin Carty (Ma'u)
    Hunt SJ
    BJ Aitken
    Munster Mansour Guth

    Would move Aitken to the wing in place of Gutherson and then have either Ma'u or Yeo in the centres

    Thoughts? Something better on offer?

    Would leave me with 10k and no trades

    No idea! Spending some time on Maggie island but staying with a friend who is from there who I met down here that moved back up there. Well, staying with... his cousin? Haven't got much of an itinerary at this stage except for time on Maggie island this weekend and a birthday bbq for my mate on the Sunday (I think?).

    Can't wait to finish up work Thursday afternoon and get to the airport. Will miss my Melbourne people though.

    Your team with Ma'u playing sounds near perfect, The only problem player left is JBrom but unless you have trades i guess he isn't too bad

    This weeks Carter Award is another tie, this time between Josh Reynolds and Jack Bird with -20 points and can't be separated because they both played 80 minutes.
