    On FTS tonight, thinking about wingers. Will Lee line up against Kahu or Oates? If its Oates Im gonna put money down on Oates/Boyd to snatch a double.

    Gagai and Hurrell seem like similar picks.

    Who has the best up-side do you think?

    If there is anyway to make this squad better please let me know so I can finally switch it off and enjoy these final few hours

    I hate my team:

    Only have Fifita and Brailey tonight.
    If Brailey starts from the bench I'll take the reserve off him.
    McCullough was a target if I chose to upgrade Brailey.
    Otherwise no one of interest, although I did have Capewell at one stage.

    Relax, its a good team. Looks bad with Holmes on the pine but that'll strengthen it right up. Log off to prevent panic trades.

    Speaking of panic trades, who remembers their first? Mine was in 2011 with Ben Smith. Cursed his name for the rest of the season.

    After posting my 'who do you have' I've now been tempted to dump Cam Smith to McCullough.

    But think I'd only do that if I could get FIfita in, which I can't do easily, so will just stick with what I have.

    Hurrell's stats are way better

    I remember when a few people from here traded out Corey Parker when he scored 37 points round 3 or something, was a few years ago.

    Pretty sure White Lightining was in that camp Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

    Yeah, but does it score him more points? Apparently the reason Gagai's stats were down last year was him playing at fullback.

    He scores about 10 points better at centre.

    On lockout day last year I traded James Graham to Aaron Woods. And also took Tedesco out to upgrade somewhere else (can't even remember who came in - might have been to get Lichaa in as hooker, who compounded things by getting injured round 1)

    Worst trades I made all year.

    @ Spectre. Sell Holmes for a fit f/b & bench Phythian is what I'd do.

    Top 5 players you are worried about not owning?

    For me, I'll feel particularly off if these guys start off going nuts.

    Fifita
    McGuire
    Tedesco
    Talakai
    De Belin

    I really like McCullough, but if I recall correctly even when KNiko wasn't around McGuire went to HOK for a bit and Ofa/Ese would come on. I know McGuire has definitely spent some time there.

    Well imo it naturally gives him more TBs
