    Think Sue won't get a whole lot more than the 50 odd mins(?) he was getting last year, and by the sounds of what's being bandied round the place he'll be likely starting up front. That being the case he'd be subbing out before woods.

    Could've seen Seumanufagai getting a big bump in minutes, but the signing of Grant has all but extinguished that line of thinking

    Sue played 80 the first few games I think looking after Moses in the second row. Then started coming on for Tapau

    Edwards might get the starting lock spot. If Grant starts too that pushes Sue to bench.

    Just wait for a few trials, then we'll get an idea on preferred team. No hurry to make a decision.

    I can't justify picking up any of the Top 11 players at that price. Like I will need them, but still don't think I can justify picking them up.

    Magic number looks to be 8940 (last year was 8835 so a small increase)

    If they increase the cap will be easier to make a gun team than previous. If the cap stays the same it will be slightly harder.

    Sam Burgess has a 12% discount on 2014 scoring.
    If you think he match what he did in 2014 from the start then you want him in your team.

    My guesses for ESL player prices

    Elliot Whitehead - $432k
    Zeb Taia - $375k
    Joe Burgess - $264k

    its just a guess, based on what they did with Hodgson and Soliola last year, so take it with a grain of salt, but just putting it out there.

    Looking at those prices i will probably only have burgess in my side. Put the "C" on DCE and hope for the best. No way in hell im dropping 500k on RTS to start the year.

    Lone Scout has said on twitter that the cap will be going up to $6.8million.

    if that is true and prices are correct it will be easier to stack a team than last year.

    Does that make any of the ESL players worth looking at while they are at those prices.

    My initial plan with DCE as C as well and also no RTS.
