    -Kayasa Pritchard named as the Eels hooker with 4 forwards on the bench
    -Jayden Brailey, even with Nu Brown backing him up (even just as an NPR cashie)
    But neither have as good job security as McInnes :/
    It really depends what McInnes does. If he comes out and scores 50s I would lament a solid buy but still be happier I went the cashie option (assuming either can hit solid >30s). But McInnes may well be the best option to make that leap from gun to 60 point super-gun this year. An 80 minute Hodgson might argue but I always feel safer with tackles in the bank.

    I think McInnes over Hodgson. Hodgson more attack minded & I can't see him out scoring McInnes over the first couple of games.

    With McInnes or just a 2nd gun HOK in general is the upside to not having to worry about the spot worth the compromise made elsewhere?
    Running with a cheapie like Brailey means I'll only get like 35 points or so out of that position but I get to fill in the 2RF with guys like De Belin and ET. Running with McInnes means I got to take a punt on someone like Felise Kaufusi and have Wallace in my starting 2RF instead of a R.

    I mean scores will be about the same plus McInnes is likely to go up in value while De Belin will probably lose value but eh just so many risky players running around this year. I'd be more inclined to trust the HOK position where any decent hooker can rack up some good points off tackles.

    I can't get behind Bunty as a fantasy option. Too many variables.
    I think he's more likely to drop price in the short term before going up if he indeed does get a solid starting role.

    Papali'i, if he comes into consideration with the injuries will definitely be there or thereabouts in my 25.

    What position does he normally play? Welshy, any other info you got for us

    He plays on the edge but would be better suited to lock IMO
    Big, tall body doesn't have the attacking game of Whitehead but he will be equally effective at the Titans

    Great signing by GC swapping an aging Taia for the 23 year old Greenwood, big upgrade for gold coast

    Is JDB (or mannering for that matter) worth the extra 40k over Cordner?

    Also - F Kaufusi and TTurbo vs Wallace and Holmes?

    If i was a mod I'd lock the thread and then edit KFP's post to make it look like he did it....

    Good thing I'm not i guess!

    @White Lightning wrote:I haven't seen Kyle Turner mentioned much on here. He's reasonably priced @ 350k & I thought he was one of Souths best yesterday plus he's an 80 min player. Did anyone see wackos tweet last week that said during the season Surgess & Turner will rotate positions during games. I assume this infers that Surgess is going to play 80 mins so they'll give him a bit of a rest on the edge during some games. It also means Turner may get 15-20 mins at lock. The only downside I see with Tutner is possibility of injury. Thoughts.

    There is an article that suggests Farah may go to lock when Cook comes on: "South Sydney coach Michael Maguire has given a strong indication he could use big-name signing Robbie Farah at lock alongside Damien Cook this NRL season."

    South Sydney Rabbitohs coach Michael Maguire hints at Farah-Cook NRL combo

    It also suggests that the Farah Cook combo could be fluid as to who starts and what minutes are played.

    In my opinion definitely. Not just the potential extra 4/5 points, but the extra game or 2 they will play for you over Origin. I have gone Manners personally because he looks as good as ever and served me well late last year. JDB relied less on attacking stats at the back end (strange saying that about Manners the tacklebot) but JDB has a small chance his minutes may change? Manners will play 70-80 every week, JDB a little less guaranteed.

    Can someone lock @Bren out of the site for the next hour or so?

    .

    Haha. I suggested this could happen about a month ago and got shot down.

    Even if it doesnt, it makes sense that farah and cooks mins arent a rigid thing. Both offer different things and it should depend on game situation

    Makes sense to me, much more chance of offensive output with Farah into the middle, Cook at rake and Turner having a rest
