    I think if I took Brailey, I'd probably take Koroisau in the halves and Gutherson at WFB. At least then I'd have options to move him should the worst happen.

    Sounds like you would end up doubling down on your bad decisions. Brailey is one of a handful of cheap HOKs available. Koroisau may lose minutes to Brown/Hastings upon his return and may not improve. Gutherson could be less effective with Norman running the ship and playing more in attack.

    Flanno has said Trex will be on the bench for round 1. Who drops off? Nu Brown, Taga, Heighno or Bukuya?

    Wonder if Brailey can play 80 mins. Might mean Brown drops off.

    Anyone wonder what the 3404 people picking Kodi Nikorima are thinking? Even from a casual standpoint I can't see the deal. At least Ben Hampton can be justified as being dirt cheap to the beginning fantasy player

    Gronco supporters.

    One poor life choice generally leads to another. Hence the K Nik inclusions

    Sometimes in life you just got to roll the dice. I could maybe see Luke Lewis filling in there briefly for 15 minutes or so but if the kid's fit and Flanno has faith then why not give him the full-time hooking duties. Nathan Cleary was given a back-rower as a halves partner and he steered the Panthers ship around like a veteran. Only way to know for sure with Brailey is for them to put him out there

    Hopefully Nu Brown, but really Heighno wasn't that great last year IMO.

    48500 players at this stage. You would think majority of seasoned and hardcore players have signed up. Suggests they may be down in numbers 4th year running.

    Anyone know how SC is travelling.

    To be fair to FanHub, I think last year's product was wonderful. Functionality and appearance were great; bar the Ryan James fracas and maybe a couple of other issues.

    Maybe less players with multiple teams? I know I haven't even thought about doing two this year

    Says my rank last year was 599/112,477 according to the history. Not sure how many the season started with though.

    2016 Season: 112,477
    2015 Season: 118,813
    2014 Season: 207,573

    Now you have to think that a couple thousand will sign up over the next week before kick off. But throughout the season I doubt many new teams are registered and we are way off the 112,477 from last year.

      Current date/time is Sat Aug 19, 2017 3:34 pm
