    No problems anywhere except the halves. Unfortunately it looks to be a big problem.

    DeBelin/Surgess/Taylor/Smat/Siro.                            CheeKam
    Moses/Lamb/Elgey.                                                     Field
    DWalker/Idris                                                              Talakai/Scott

    Love the banner, it's feels like one of those 78min Fifita runs where he puts on a lazy 30 bonus points

    a) Yes

    b) Judging his potential scores on one game without Smith and Cronk worse than useless

    c) Most info still points to Munster starting 5/8th

    d) Yes

    What happens if Munster bombs at 5/8th and Slater stays fit?

    Munster CTR then Croft/Scott 5/8th?

    Lot of "ifs" there. I think Croft might get a go at some point and be a useful pickup, but wouldn't be looking for him in Round One, even if named you know Slater is coming in when fit. And who knows? If Munster goes permanently back to fullback then maybe Bellamy will just move Tohu to 5/8th like he does when any other position on the field needs covering.

    I am considering buying Hinango over Field (who would be a sleeper cow), because if he gets 25k price rises for 3 games he would be roughly a straight-trade for Croft, who should just be coming into calculations with the whole Munster experiment failing the first three rounds (Big calls thread?)

    Yeah but surely through the bench. Hinango only needs that third start to make dollars if his breakeven is small

    SJ was straight down to business in the trial-looked very sharp. Not sure if Hingano is going to do a lot.

    Did anyone answer the 'what's up with Valentine Holmes' question from the other thread? I think the party happened before any definitive answer. He was just resting the hamstring over the weekend right? Should be ok for round 1? Had Peats/Tedesco, but now I have to rearrange that and McInnes/Holmes is probably next cab off the rank
