    Winterstein is a 2fr. Should that be someone else.

    I think Sironen is going to be in my team

    All he has to do is not get injured/dropped and he'll make money.

    And if he actually starts playing well then there is real opportunity there.

    Also Re: Simona

    "The NRL today issued a notice of intention to cancel the registration of Wests Tigers player Tim Simona.

    The notice relates to alleged breaches of the rules relating to gambling on NRL matches.

    Simona will now be prohibited from training or playing with the club until the matter is finalised.

    He will be given a chance to respond to the allegations before a final determination is made.

    The NRL will not be commenting further until the matter is resolved."

    http://www.nrl.com/nrl-statement-on-tim-simona/tabid/10874/newsid/103848/default.aspx

    Although he may somehow end up at the Titans because of all this I bet.

    If he gets banned by the NRL for gambling - does his salary still count for the Tigers?

    ^ You got to think his contract would state something about his NRL contract being terminated they don't have to fulfill contract obligations to him. So I would say if he is gone, that frees up space.

    Nice to see Pearce in a team for a change

    Never liked him but seems like he has a much more mature head on his shoulders now and has actually changed his life around a bit - Roosters look a lot stronger too so I expect some more attack stats and he was looking good at the back end of last season.

    Sounds like the NRL have their ducks in a row as they are issuing him with a notice of intent to cancel his contract.

    Damit, knew it was one of you and took a punt.
    Funnily enough that sounds like what Timmy did. Sad

    I know a few here alreadyhave a man crush - but Super Kenny Sio can probably average as much as Uate can, for only $13k more.
    And probably has a safer spot in first grade too.

    I have no doubt we'll find a way to keep paying him on our cap even if he gets sacked and becomes a garbo.

    Also for those floating around. Today is the last day to sign up for the NRL Fantasy Fanatics Leagues. Which includes getting to play in the Fanatic Overall Group (FOG) for the year. So make sure you sign up in the following thread.

    http://www.nrlfantasyfanatics.com/t402-2017-nrl-fantasy-leagues-registration-thread

    Also if you are new to Fanatic Leagues, post a screenshot of your rank from last season to help with your placement.

    Priced at 18 and scored 27 in his only starting appearance.

    If he can maintain a starting spot he looks a better money making prospect than just about anyone else under $200k

    Biggest concern would be Lane/Kennedy/Taupau relegating him to the bench

    I've been trying to get both Burgess and De Belin in a team with 2 gun hookers - but just don't think it's viable without sacrificing too much elsewhere
