    For the fleet footed such as SJohnson and Holmes and Co, it would be gud if they brought in a new stat type where if the opposition guy/s felt the wind/breeze of them tearing past it would then be called a Wind Break ie; he broke wind.
    The hardest part would be getting the defense to acknowledge this of course.

    Sorry for the bad joke, maybe it's the construction of this fantasy team that is ripping me apart

    If you had to chose between Jono wright, Lee and Ayshford for your final spot in the 17 on the Wing.

    Would you:

    A) give up on life

    or

    B) Chose both Lee and Ayshford because two wrongs make a Wright?

    Lol Lol Lol Lol Lol Lol Lol

    But seriously... if I have to make this decision kill me.

    For me it would be an extra $138k forward.

    Yates/Perrett/Stone/Papalii

    Will have one or 2 of these guys depending on Bradley. Obviously there scoring potential is lower than Brailey's and there is a risk of getting stuck with them.

    Thoughts on Buhrer? Potential gun this year
    What did you think of his performance in the trials?

    I thought Buhrer looked good, he is always an injury risk though.

    He was defending out wide but drifting into the middle as he likes to tackle everything so him and Barnett switched in and out. In attack he looked sharp hitting the inside line. Should score consistently as will tackle a lot in the Knights are losing but if they are winning he will be highly involved in the attack.

    Think i just talked myself into him

    Potentially, I am a little hesitant to pull the trigger and start with Buhrer as while he looks set for 80 minutes and he has shown he can score well under those conditions (3 x 60+ scores) He also has shown he can have a quiet game here and there. He is priced at around a 50 point average and I think he can definitely maintain that and could increase to a 55+ point average, but it would be hard to say he becomes a 60 point scorer at this stage. (I didn't see him in the trials Sad )

    So in maturing,

    did he score tries, increase his work rate, or something else. A ten to fifteen point jump in a short term period is pretty significant.

    He's only ever scored the only try so it wasn't that.

    From watching him it was more workload but it was also smart workload as well. Couple clever offloads and just generally a better player.

    Okay, what's the deal with my team.  

    HOK: CS9, Brailey (R)
    FRF: JWal, Fifi, Leota, Kaufusi (R)
    2RF: JDB, Manners, ET, Yates, Winterstein, Siro (R)
    HLF: Moses, Elgey, Lamb (R), Hingano  
    CTR: Idris, Sione, Talakai, Kelly
    WFB: The Guth + everybody that everybody has

    As I said  with my latest team which is very similar bar 2-3 in the 17 feels a bit template

    Only difference in our 17 is Mannering ET Moses vs Surgess SJ D Walker

    Oh poor misguided sets...

    League 5 of the Fanatics league has been changed to League 51. So while we would love to have you, you probably think you are better than us considering you are in League 3.


    Although if you start a Fantasy Fanatics Page 51 league... don't invite Bren.

    It definitely could be, but I am sure you know this others may not. If a player steps another player, or gets past him based off blistering pace and the opposing player doesn't touch him. They still often count that as a tackle break.

    I already have 2 of them as NPRs (1 in FR 1 in SR), i dont trust adding a 3rd so im going Brailey. With Smith as my no1 i have no problem writing off the 2nd hooker spot if Brailey fails. Generally in the big bye rounds i dont have 17 anyway so not having a back-up hooker there doesnt concern me. The biggest risk is Smith missing 1 week here and there due to injury/susp.
