    I can't believe you had 15 to lose Bender, you must have deadset porked up over Winter!

    I lost 8 from November to last week. But I'm on 2 weeks A/L now so will have a fair crack at putting a bit of that back on Very Happy

    SI and BB putting the pressure on for us to lose weight albino might have to hook up the abacus to the exercise bike to watch the games No

    Thrown a team together with Smith and ET as hookers , and a strong back line and weak forward pack in a bid to change it up a bit via a stick and forget centre pair of Tohu and Croker, resting hopes of some cows coming home early very risky, but ya never never know if ya never never go.

    No mate, didnt win anything to my knowledge but still proud to be involved in one of the top leagues. I have recreated Bullbenders League just then so those that were in last year should get an invite but fucked Hench off so there is one spot remaining for anyone who wants in. Just PM for code.

    I'm in BB. Thanks for the code.

    Toying with the idea of running Apisai Koroisau as my second hooker, also gambling on the following
    KBromwich,Gurgess,Whare,AFBlake and Clay Priest - which allows me 3 strong halves in ARey,Norman and Cleary with Elgey

    I really like the price of Brock Lamb as a third half with Elgey 4th mate gives a very decent balance elsewhere and I think he can get into the high 30s-40s

    Already got Sione Mata'utia and even he might be one too many Knights at the table.

    Fair point haha, I'm just thinking along the lines of bulk KM and a load of defensive work, low price and good reserve option

    Be careful about trials giving a misleading impression of Koroisau.


    Hastings is currently injured, but according to reports he might get the starting spot when fit

    http://m.nrl.com/wests-tigers-2017-nrl-fantasy-guide/tabid/10874/newsid/103076/default.aspx

    Jamal Idris
    NRLF: CTR, $194,000
    VSDT: CTR/2RF, $274,000

    Matt Ballin
    NRLF: HOK, $214,000
    VSDT: HOK, $152,500

    In the NRLF thread, Idris seems to be a popular pick, but IMO he is a risk at $274,000 ($80,000 more expensive) in VSDT.

    On the other hand, there doesn't appear to be much love for Ballin in the NRLF thread, but at only $152,500 ($61,500 cheaper) in VSDT, he looks a steal and worth consideration in spite of his injury concern.

    What do you guys think about these two Tigers VSDT-wise (as opposed to NRLF-wise)?
