    My first team

    Smith (King)
    McGuire Mannah AFB FKaufusi
    Surgess Taylor Gallen Sione Kennedy (Stimson)
    Norman Moses (Lamb Hingano)
    Idris Whare (Scott Kelly)
    RTS Hayne Slater (Pythian Jennings)

    I think the only definites are 
    Smith, Surgess, Sione, Idris, Hayne, RTS. If they are fit and named round 1, can't see myself starting without them
    I will most likely have an edge forward from Manly and Melbourne in my team, depending on who gets the vacant spots and what i think of their job security.

    Slater will be in if he can prove his fitness during trials.

    The bench hooker is doing my head in Bang

    How does everyone think Cameron King will go?

    Is he likely to get enough game time to take the risk with him.

    I currently have Smith and Ballin.

    I'm surprised you remembered. We haven't moved there yet, plans were all of a sudden put on hold, my old man was diagnosed with cancer so my wife and I had that to deal with.

    It's still on the cards though, whenever I get the chance I check out the real estate sites in Tassie.

    My Sister is putting her's on the market (Bellerive) and moving just out of Hobart. Can just see the outfield from her deck Very Happy .

    King is fantasy poison.

    His fantasy average when sharing the hooking duties is mid 20s.

    The only thing that would make him useful is if he gets the sole hooking duties. There has been talk of Brad Arthur wanting an 80 minute hooker, so this is a possibility.

    If King shares time with De Gois or Pritchard he will make cash slowly, but you certainly won't want him in your 17 if this is the case.


    Both Ballin and King have had their share of injury problems, but if he can stay fit, Ballin is a safer fantasy bet

    I'm curious on how Mortimer will go at Hooker - worried he might be a bit injury prone having to make a lot of tackles

    He hasn't really been mentioned much, but I think Tim Mannah might be an OK bet.

    He is slightly underpriced due to injury last year, has good byes and I think is a more reliable option than the other Parra props (both for fantasy and real life)

    Priced at 34.5, but a non injury average of 38.5. Post origin last year he averaged over 40.

    Mostly its the byes though

    Not sure if you have solved it, but others have had luck trying alternate webbrowsers. Also clear your Cache/Cookies and see if that fixes the issue.

    He has played mostly hooker the past 2 years so i think he is OK in this regard.

    Main question is who gets the starting spot at Cronulla. Assuming Seggy doesn't make a last minute appearance its probably between Morts, Brailey and Cherrington.

    Whoever starts is worth looking at, if you think their starting spot is secure

    Not sure if this answers the question, but when playing in the Halves Morts has proven to be one of the best defenders in his position. He makes a pile of tackles there so won't shirk the workload. However yes, he will have a few more big men to handle out of hooker. My only concern is the bloke is waaaaay too handsome to be put in the frontline.
