    It will also lead to slats running out of trades before round 5.

    What will happen if we get one of those seasons with heaps of injuries and we spend most of our trades replacing injured players and not building our teams? Besides, people will stop playing the game when they run out of trades so the sponsors wouldn't agree to that. A lot of people might opt to play a different game that provides more trades then Fantasy when they see at the start of the year less trades, at least fiddling with the MN is less conspicuous.

    Now that Weapons has shut up shop Slats might return here.  He did try Renegades but not sure he really got on with some folk over there.

    I agree with Shanbon in theory and would love to see it happen.  But like you say, in practise it would more than likely not end well for FanHub.

    Given Fanhub's main aim is to get people to keep visiting the site. I doubt less trades is something we'll see any time soon.

    I wonder if they'll reassess the finals comp this time next year because I imagine the site hits correlate with the hits we're getting here.

    In the words of a famous NZ poet:

    Count me, the men who travel in such style,
    Count me, the men whose words rouse such passion,
    Too few, if one man at all,
    Too few, if one man at all,
    Count me, the men who could please a crowd in such a manner
    nay, nay, I can think of no man

    Actually I was just bored and wanted to see how Scribe sounded in ye olde poetry style.

    All things considered I think I'd rather hold on to Lolohea.

    That is awesome!  

    The winner has an apt name, and a few familiar names in there, including 8th who is ex-Sportal.

    Did they resign Elijah? Matty could be a good pick up if not. Plays a bit of lock too doesn't he?

    Lolohea didn't make the most of his opportunities at the end of the year, if they bring in Foran I think that's a pretty clear message

    Agree, seem to lose form/confidence at the back end of the season. A healthy Foran or Tui - it's a no-brainer.

    In saying that, Tui is signed on until 2018, there's no harm in keeping him and using him as a backup or centre.
