    Holmes ruled out of Thursday nights clash with the Broncos.

    Gallen has been directly quoted as saying Holmes will 100% not play.

    I'm predicting that basically every team will name a 2nd hooker as part of their 21 man squad.

    I'm keen for the idea you mentioned on the last thread Milch.
    Starting with the same team and trading through to victory. Let me know if it goes ahead?

    Would we look at going with a lot of PODs (agreed upon) in the team just to make it even more interesting?

    If Croft gets named it could tempt me into a bit of a trap.

    Just getting back to you about the L1, L4, elite question from the last thread. They are referring to the leagues set up by this forum for members of this forum, with your fantasy ranking determining what League you're in.

    First time poster and not sure if this is the continued thread from 51 page one, but would love some feed back of my team. I can't stop changing it!

    Smith (c), Brailey
    AFifita, GBurgess, FKaufusi (r), Hoare
    ET, SMat, McGuire, DTaylor (r), NButcher (r), Asiata
    Austin, TMM, Elgey (r), JField
    Idris, Whare, Talakai, Kelly
    RTS, Hayne, Turbo, RJennings, Pongo

    I have questions around Austin and also Cam Brailey vs say McInnes Lichaa..

    I also don't know about Ryan and JDB cause they've served me well in the past but can't see them fitting in with Cam Fifita.

    League 2 being the party league (according to the mainstream media, which is likely to be fake news)

    Are the kick-off times listed on the NRL site all Sydney times? (ie does that mean the Melbourne/Bulldogs game on Friday kicks off at 4pm Qld time?)

    it shows times based on the location it detects you in (based on IP). So if you're in Brisbane, you should be seeing Brisbane times.

    To confirm:
    Storm V Dogs kicks off at 5pm BNE time.
    Rabbitohs V Tigers kicks off at 7pm BNE time.

    Round 4? More like round 1.

    The utter disappointment is incomparable when your team goes bust in round 1 after months of planning.
