    if you're running Brailey though it means you have the extra money spent elsewhere, so its not really a direct comparison. Eg Brailey allows for an extra gun 2rf.

    EDIT wait i guess much of that extra money has gone to Smith. But it would still leave 150k ish left to upgrade elsewhere.

    And if I had CS9 Brailey I'd want Brailey as an NPR making cash

    I captained Leilua against the Knights last year. Got his lowest score of the year. Week or so after he scored two tries against the best defensive team in the comp.  

    Point is I wouldn't. Warriors haven't won a Round 1 match since 2009. Not only would I not captain SJ I'd say Knights have a decent chance of winning

    You should get a lift with Timmy down to the TAB then, you will get around $5.50 for the Knights at the moment.

    For Example Smith 60-70 Brailey 30-35 = 90 - 105

    vs McInnes 50-60 and Farah 47-57 = 97 - 117

    Sure these scores are only opinions and the 140K cheaper option of Smith and Brailey equates to about 15 points difference, but if McInnes and Farah both get 80 mins to start the season they could actually be hitting near 60 points a game and be awesome. With Field on the bench I actually don't think McCrone will go to hooker but if he does (due to the Matthews injury) I have a feeling that McInnes could spend some time at lock. He was really impressive in pre season by all accounts and leading the endurance/fitness sessions.


    Running with Brailey is all about milking the Ca$h cow

    the +16 line offered for the knights looks pretty juicy actually.

    If Brailey turns out to be decent enough to make $ surely he will then be good enough to make most peoples 17s right?

    He would be in mine anyway, which has me a little concerned based on a couple recent posts haha!

    If running with Brailey and Api named without bench hooker (though I think Hastings could be today or in the future) having Api at HLF and Guth at WFB could be handy DPP strategy

    That's my point, a lot of teams have Brailey or Elgey as 4th reserve pegged at about 30 points.
    Just feel the 1 position where there only 1 reserve you run with a 19 year old rookie that has three other options plus rumours all season of signing seggy (which could still happen).

    Surely there will be other cash cows at bottom price that can hit 30's too? maybe not

    Smith likely to be your captain too. Smith averages 5 (ish) higher than Fifita, who is almost a must if youre not running smith. So when compaing examples with smith options V other options. Add an extra 10pts on Smiths average as his contribution

    Brooks had a toothache last week, this week it's a hamstring, his biggest problem is his heart or lack of it

    I think it's all mind games now

    What stops me from running with Brailey from the start is his fantasy score of 28 (51mins) at the last trial match...

    just being cautious

    Didnt parcell leave because barrett wants his hooker to be a distributor rather than a runner? Koro would have to get all his points from tackles

    I actually remember a quote saying the opposite, that he thought Parcell wasn't good enough in attack. Which a lot of us found absurd. Anyone else remember which way it was?

    Because the Sharks play first, you get a peak at what Brailey will do. If he completely bombs in rd 1, you could always downgrade a player in the following games before lockout to free up cash to upgrade Brailey the following week, therefore costing you the one trade instead of two. Thoughts?

    That article claiming Tigers are injured is here,

    Rookie sensation Moses Suli to make his NRL debut for Wests Tigers in round one

    Adrian Proszenko 

    Moses Suli, yet to play a NSW Cup game or finish an NYC fixture, is set to make one of the most remarkable NRL debuts for the Wests Tigers on Friday night.

    Suli has earned a spot in the blockbuster clash against South Sydney at ANZ Stadium as a replacement for Tim Simona, who has been stood down following allegations he arranged bets against his team.

    The shock elevation of Suli, who became the highest-paid player yet to play NRL when he signed a record $1.3 million extension, will give fans a chance to see what all the fuss is about.

    The Bulldogs and Storm aggressively courted Suli, despite the fact back issues prevented him from finishing off his two NYC appearances. However, the teenage centre stuck with the Tigers and was rewarded with a call-up to the Auckland Nines.

    Suli showed he wasn't out of place during that tournament and subsequent trials, prompting coach Jason Taylor to give him a call-up ahead of utility Jordan Rankin.

    Suli will make his debut on the wing alongside centre Jamal Idris, who is also making his first appearance for the Wests Tigers.

    While much of the hype in the lead-up to the Rabbitohs clash has focused on Robbie Farah's first game against the Tigers, the Suli-Idris combination will be another big talking point.

    Suli trained on the wing on Monday and is expected to be officially named in the Tigers line-up on Tuesday.

    The 18-year-old quit rugby league three years ago following the shock death of his father, Manu. When he eventually returned to the game to trial with Parramatta after a six-month sabbatical, he didn't make the cut.

    However, the Fairfield United junior found a home at the Tigers and wants to honour his father's memory by becoming an established first grader.

    "I want to make my dad proud," Suli said in a recent interview with Fairfax Media. "He always wanted me to play footy since I was born. That's all I wanted to do."

    It's been far from a perfect preparation to the season-opener for the Tigers, who are nursing a series of niggling injuries to their biggest name players just four days out from their clash against the Rabbitohs.

    Five-eighth Mitchell Moses missed most of the team's session on Monday and only had limited time at a restricted intensity as he battles to overcome bone bruising in his ankle.

    His halves partner Luke [ltr]Brooks[/ltr], who has been hampered by a hamstring injury, required a rubdown on the injured leg during the team's session but is expected to play on Friday night.

    Fullback James Tedesco spent the first half of training doing individual drills, later joining the team on a restricted workload.

    Skipper Aaron Woods was given an early mark from training, finishing the session on the bike, while centre Idris required strapping on his knee as he prepares for his first game back in the NRL since 2015.

    Idris, who left the Panthers on a personal journey of self discovery around the world, admitted he was itching to get back out on the paddock.

    "It will all seem surreal until I run out on the field," Idris said. "That's when it will all hit me. It'll be a bit of fun, I'll tell you that much. That's what I miss more about it – the adrenaline rush you get. It's so addictive. The thing you miss most of all is actually running out on to that field.

    "A night game, the lights shining down on you, thousands of people in the crowd and then you look up and see your own face on the big screen. That's what you miss – that rush is second to none. You run out on a footy field, that feeling for 80 minutes – it's actually insane."
