    Yep. Objectively he will struggle to hit 30, but it's another year and a different scenario there.  So you have him now?

    Have him as a NPR. 30 points and 60 odd minutes isn't too much to ask from a starting second rower in the Melbourne system

    Re Brailey (coming from someone who had McInnes up until an hour ago locked in)

    Basically Gallen,Innes,Flanno and Graham have come out and backed him.
    Most have used words like easing into 80, won't start and finish, and will start by sticking to the basics. Segyaro isn't on the books, Mortimer was bought as a replacement to Cleeland (dogs) as halves depth, nu brown is a utility and the only real competition is a project hooker in cherrington.

    Feeling from the sharks forums and these articles, watching him play in u20s last year and in the WCC is that he has potential, it's just about managing him and  it throwing him in the deep end.

    I am a season sharks member son back the youngster, my main reservations were I couldn't resist an 80 minute McInnes but for the balance of the team I have finally come around.

    That was based on the rumour posted here early that Taylor named him outside the 17 to avoid pressure and he will be making debut

    Bit of a dick move when you think about it, his family cannot get free tickets to the game due to it not being his official named debut - unless they have changed the rules.

    this guy right here has had him from day one and we won't be moving. A) I absolutely love watching him play and B) it's even better when you have money on him for FTS and/or him in fantasy the wins are so much nicer.

    Same for me Booze, has allowed me an potentially better cow albeit in the second hooking spot and the addition of Norman so I can have Lamb and Elgey as my 2 lowest $$ halves, hate the fact of potenially running Hingano/Field and them just sitting there

    plus I don't have Brailey as a reserve so can sit and watch to see how he goes

    Rollercoaster

    zero KM so will get his base stats from RM and tackles, can go massive but be prepared for some 20's. In a side stacked with attacking talent where he won't be the first port of call I wouldn't expect any more than a 35-38 average

    Half serious, half joking. All confusing

    I can only say that your team is identical to mine except you have Moses/Mannering/Et vs my kromwich/Gallen/surgess

    So unsure if we should swap and call it a day Wink

    Would hate to hear how bad my halves are if yours are shit ahah.
    The song bear necessity springs to mind for me

    So being lumped with ol Booze here means you can grade it however you wish based on that

    Sounds like you have been asking for advice on Renegades. Smith is solid. Everybody says that he will take a dip this year, and it doesnt happen. He just just too busy on the field and can score points in so many ways, the only thing which will ever limit him is minutes, not age. Mannering, JDB, Fifita all guns who should kick on this year as usual. ET should be solid enough, even if he plays a little hooker until Balin is back. I read he will be running more, so that could help give him some high scores. I also have him in my team. I like Moses and Lamb as halves, but they are a little weak in combination. Probably the weakest you could possibly use and get away with, it could definitely work, but it sure is a risk. Elgey is a weaker NPR than i would normally run (im calling Moses and Lamb your 1st and 2nd half in this scenereo) and I would always feel safer with at least one solid HLF gun because it is a possibility that all three score sub 30 round 1. I see some extra cash in Winterstein NPR, maybe you could try to use that cash and a downgrade to turn Moses into a genuine gun half to balance out the Lamb and Elgey.  Your CTR and WFB are all identical to mine so I have to say that I like every pick. Sione is also due for a big points, I have him in the CTR position as you do whilst most seem to have him in the second row. The reason is that even though I could chase more cash cows in the CTR, i still want someone to score solid points there too. And I think he will, so tick to this.

    Overall this team is solid enough. No idea why people would ridicule it
