Having a journo on the show was a genius idea because all ex-players have the same boys-club mentality to protect each other and the brand (and that is fair enough on their part IMO), though Ben Ikin is better than most. Wonder why the Bronx fans don't like him? He is usually pretty unbias and unreserved in his opinions, and yet still sings praises about Wayne as a coach and the club as an establishment and business enterprise.
    You do realise that Bennett is his father in law?.
    Ikin is up there with Halligan and Brandy as the worst commentators in the NRL.

    Followed this for quite a bit now but decided to create an account so I can join the fantasy league but I may as well get involved posting too. From the UK but follow the NRL more than ESL. Finished 399 last year and that's with not playing the last 5/6 rounds after FanHub well and truly did me over!

    Best of luck in the season all.

    Scottish or Welsh ?

    Ok..so this is version 30167 of my team. Happy with the forward pack but need a couple of things to come off for all of this to work :-(

    First of all team is:

    C.Smith(C) King
    J.Graham(V) D.Saifiti, J.Wallace (R), Gurgess (R)
    Surgess, J.McGuire, ET , KBrom (R). SMat (R), Stimson
    Norman, Lamb, Field, Fogerty
    J.Idris,B.Kelly,C.Scott, Olive
    Hayne,RTS,Slater ,Phythian,R.Jennings

    I know there is a fair amount of risk around Slater not breaking and the possibility that Kelly,Scott and Olive don't make the field RD1 but I am not worrying to much about that it until TLT.

    Storm pack is confusing the hell out of me. Who has the best shot out of Finucane / KBrom for the 13 jersey long term. Finucane named on the bench for this weeks trial match, is this due to injury ?

    Also, is anyone backing Jordan McLean & or Felise Kaufusi to get extra minutes this year. Does Stimson have big wraps, he is in allot of teams I have seen posted on this board.

    Thanks in advance guys..I believe its almost party time Cool

    I think Stimson is there in spirit only and is interchangeable with any rookie priced 2nd rower.

    Ok I will be gentle, I can count 8 players that I think may not even play round 1,
    That leaves 17 players only making points and money,
    It is not going to work dude try again.

    Lol, point taken. Back to the drawing board then.

    Is anyone thinking that Taylor will be push his average closer to 45-50 this season ? Kind of surprised that his average wasn't higher than that. I thought he did most of the kicking last year ?

    He didn't Roberts did, which is why I think he can really push on this year, Elgey is more of a running half and Taylor should also be goalkicking

    Damn all you people that are posting possible teams. It confuses me.
    I can't really consider half of my team until TLT.
    It's good to see opinions though. Will King really start for the Eels. He's been mentioned so much and might not even be there. Shocked
    Anyway, I have no money left and three 2nd row places to fill. What a Face What a Face

    Finucane is coming back from injury. Think he's 100% going to be at 13 come Rnd1.

    I'd be backing Kaufisi to get more minutes, whether it's starting or, if KBrom starts, off the bench. Think Bellamy really likes him though and wouldn't be surprised to see him in the 11 shirt, but that's just a hunch.

    When it comes to page 51, two things are certain in here: sets will be lurking, and Chewie won't be.

    I like all your picks individually, you just seemed to have crammed a player too many in there and you have absolutely no wiggleroom fielding every NPR as a nuffie. You really need to hit the jackpot to get 10/10 of those guys playing, and THEN Slater on the park. The team itself is solid, I think you will need to downgrade somebody so you can at least make some preparations for when the inevitable 9/10 nuffies get named. I was recently faced with a very similar situation involving almost the entirety of your forwards, and I chose to give ET the axe. I liked the ET pick, but I saw more value in every one of the others. So that is my two cents- downgrade ET to someone no worse than Aloiai (if he is named in the starting pack) and use the extra cash to spring for the cheapest NPRs who will actually end up playing like Talakai, Uate,  F.Winterstein, Hoare, Kaufusi (only TLT will verify, but its still fun to play! Wink )

    Your real problem is you're only halfheartedly following the one true path.

    GUNS N ROOKIES 4 LYF

    Try this:

    Smith, King
    James, Fifita, Graham, Gurgess
    Surgess, Mannering, McGuire, Smat, Stimson, Capewell
    Elgey, Hingano, Fogerty, Field
    Idris, Scott, Olive, Kelly
    RTS, Hayne, Rennings, Phythian, Ponga

    Pretty sure Craig Field is in Silverwater of being followed by the middle eastern crime squad. You might want to find another half.
