    I don't even know if my team is good. The one time I get an answer I can't tell if it's a joke response or not.

    Fuck it I like it. I'll check where I am in the league ladder after round 1 to see if it was a success or not.

    Thats nearly my team

    Hoare, McGuire, Holmes vs Musgrove, Sironen, Dugan

    I have been circling round Dugan for a long time but everytime I put him in I rearrange to upgrade to Tedesco...Dugans FB avg last year was 47/48 and he only scored twice! May end up going back round to him

    2 was the lowest number of tries he has scored in a season since 2009 and he has played in some awful teams. Raiders in 2011 had a 15% win percentage with Dugan, Dragons in 2013 30%, Dragons 2014 38%, Dragons 2016 47%

    Price point mainly. I know several people have selected him. It is just he is a lot to invest in initially when there are 3-4 Cashcow options in the WFB position as well as keepers. While the 2RF doesn't have as many.

    Not convinced on Moses and I feel like i'm a gun 2nd rower short (downgrade McGuire, swap ET). And got to deal with Holmes out for at least round 1 -thinking of French as a straight swap.

    I really really like this team. Personally I would go with cheaper HLF's and may upgrade a 2RF. However that isn't needed this team looks really nice. Brb while i change my team to this with a few tweaks.

    Yeah, if the rumours are true that Moses' heel is till tender we may not see his best for a few weeks.

    I am probably one of not many who is not picking Kaufusi.

    This was my Brailey team but I just don't think I can run him because surely he is the first to go if the sharkies start poorly, with Morts, Nu Brown and still chasing Seggy

    Smith, Brailey
    DSaifiti, Wallace, Kaufusi, Perrett
    DeBelin, Surgess, ET, SMat, Vodlermort, NUFF
    ATaylor, Norman, Lamb, Elgey
    Kelly, Idris, Moga/Talakai, Lawton
    RTS, Hayne, Dugan, Phythian, Cotric

    What do you mean? They are meant to bump 2 guys off their extended bench and then another 2 guys an hour before the game.

    My point was mate that surely with a base 47/48 avg at FB and only 2 tries he is due for a positive uptick and only price at 43. He is and has been under serious consideration

    His stats are garbage and I was avoiding till Harris went down. Too many second row minutes available now with Proctor(70) and Harris(80) missing from last year

    What's Field's chances of getting a start should dragons lose a few to start?
    It's slim pickings in the halves and it's between him and hingano.
    Hingano at least plays a full couple games but is gone in 2, Field is a bad ae unless he gets a start.
    Will Mary throw a Hail Mary at some stage and play Field?

    Hmmmmm

    Thats what I was trying to say but worded it poorly. Has proven he can score points in rubbish teams so the 2017 Dragons under performing is nothing new

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

    CTR: Idris, Sione, Talakai, Kelly
    WFB: Guth, Hayne, RTS, Cotric, Phythian

    I got told my HLF's are shit and my forward bench are all traps which is true but also got told Sione is a trap, Smith is too old and Mannering was doomed to move to the edge.
    Half serious, half joking. All confusing
