    This will be great, maybe Ricky is wanting to fix the defence with Whitehead next to a rookie winger in Cotric as by all reports from the trial turner struggled defensively. He may not drop that much in price in four weeks but imagine having a 50 point scorer in your centres for the year.

    There is a little snippet in there regarding moving a back rower to centre.

    That article doesn't mention Whitehead to centre at all. And if Stuart does move one of his backrowers to centre - he could well use Soliola who has at least played there at NRL level before.

    Luke Kelly will more than likely fill in for ARey.

    So if Brailey is named to start round 1, I have the dilemma of whether to go Brailey + McGuire or McInness + 2RF cheapie.

    Thoughts?

    I think they are better off with Cook in the halves to be honest. Luke Kelly is rubbish IMO.

    Depends on which 2RF cheapies look viable. And whether Brailey/said cheapie would be NPRs or in your 17.

    You could always take the risk, ditch Smith and go McInnes+Brailey

    If they were to go that way I would be more interested in Angus Crichton than I already am.

    Depends how long you expect him to hold that position for, but yes, he would be worth consideration.

    Continuing from last thread.

    Farah will need to average over 60 for 4 weeks to make decent money (more than $50k)
    And its a good chance you'll have to trade him out soon after that or just lose the money you've made.
    His average for 70+ minutes over the past 2 years is around 58 - and you would want hom to improve on that.

    If Farah was available at a bigger discount it would make more sense but he is fairly expensive. but McCullough and McInnes seem like safer bets to me.


    If Smith was to drop 40-50k though it would kind of make the trade worth closer that 100k number......if you could cover the gap

    It's still not worth it as you've gotta trade out Smith for origin so you'd only have him for 6-8 weeks. Either start with Smith or get him after origin.

    Good up and coming player. I think he'll be a permanent fixture in the 17 as the year goes on. If Sutton or Turner goes down I'd expect him to slot right in and he'd be a brilliant fantasy pickup too.

    Crichton was one of the first players I put a star on. Waiting for him to nab a starting 2rf gig.

    Would only be as I said if Turner or Sutton go down, or move Sutton back to the halves for Reynolds which opens up a spot.

    Question for Milch. Someone on FB said only 5 weeks for player to max out and Farah would reach 550k with 60 avg True?
