    Gillett would be a good replacement for Hoffman who is over the hill & offers nothing imo.

    Agreed, but how quickly are they gonna dump the captain?

    My concern is Bodene is on the outer or looking to move back to AU. Him and Johnson really found a groove this season and with the possibility of Foran being there/RTS/Luke returning we'd have the international squad not making club finals Laugh 3 Laugh 3 Laugh 3

    Just an idea

    To be honest, you could give me 25 extra trades to use this week and it wouldn't make much difference. I am not going to be able to significantly increase my rank.

    I think that changes to the pricing formula would be beneficial. The fact that people have final team values of 150% of their initial team value is too big a change over the course of the season. I like the premier league pricing model, where price changes are a lot more gradual, and you only get half of any profits when you sell.
    I also like their system of 1 free trade a week, and paying a points penalty to make additional transfers (although the prevalence of people playing H2H comps with overall teams means paying points for extra transfers is not a viable option)

    That sort of stuff is a very radical change, so I don't know how it would go down. Fox sports used to run a comp using the premierleague system as a base, but can't have been popular enough because they abandoned it a few years ago (although I personally preferred it to DreamTeam or Supercoach)


    No matter what changes you make though, you will never be able to stop interest from dropping off near the end of the season as casual players and those who can't win anything just stop caring

    In reality I don't think Gillett would link up with the Warriors but he's the kind of player we need. The Warriors problem area is inconsistency in the forwards. So I would say Gillett & another experienced hardened prop. If Bodene is off & say we fluke Gillett then a back row of Gillett, Matulino & Mannering would be awesome. Then they sign another quality prop to start with Lillyman & you have Vete, Lisone, Afoa coming off the bench.

    First of all that's one ripping team bro. I reckon get C. Walker (v Knights away) via Tedesco. Also get R. James as well. You suggested selling J-Trbo but I reckon you should sell Gallen. Good luck.

    The one thing I'd like to see them steal off premier league fantasy is the wildcard.
    Make as many changes/trades as you want for one round at any stage in the season.
    Right before origin? Right after origin? Your call... but you only get it once.

    I love the idea of that for NRL fantasy.

    Gallen as 18th man
    3. Gutherson or Barba to Hayne
    4. Whoever you think will score high in Round 26

    2 Trades left, $28,000 cash playing CK this week in h2h:

    Smith NPR
    Graham Fifita Jtrbo NPR
    Mannering Whitehead James Thompson Merrin NPR
    SJ Cleary Cartwright Watson
    BJ Guth NPR NPR
    Mansour Aitken Ttrbo NPR NPR

    What trades should I make this week??????

    Here is the interesting thing, I only have 18 active players so if I cashed out anyone for an NPR and upgraded another player, I would have exactly 17 active players which means I could do a loophole. But this would be at last resort.

    I'd be tempted to trade for the loophole.  Easy to say though when it's not me doing it.  If not I'd try to bring Munster in-bloke only needs to get on the field to score 50-there's another 90 odd coming if he scores a meaty or 2.

    Can someone else check the the Ex-Sportal League on the app. The scores are showing up incorrectly, as in a massive difference.

    Both groups have scores showing up fine on the website. Don't use the app so wouldn't know.

    App is showing rd 23 scores on mine not round 24. Good thing I checked the website as I had Archer eliminated in the Eliminator. Would have been massive calls of conspiracy and lots of explaining to do thanks to the NRL Fantasy app.

    I first checked last weeks scores on the app and used the scores from the Ex-Sportal League for the Eliminator results. At that time they were showing round 23 scores and not round 24. I firstly noticed something was up when I scrolled past my score and noticed it was different to what I actually scored, I then recalled you said you won your eliminator easily so knew something was wrong. I hope that makes sense...

    In other news, chickened out on my captain call this week. Went away from (C)am last week in favour of JDB but I just can't see Smith being a bad option when he is playing the Broncos. Not enough incentive to go elsewhere. I was tempted by Graham against the Cows or Merrin against Titans though as they could both be good arm wrestles.
