    I dropped him out half n hour ago, so he will be named for sure! In all seriousness, if they re winning I can't see him gettinga run.

    Okay so atm my only cheapish/mid-range forwards are kaufusi, Wallace and Sironen. Is that about par?

    One last change for me.

    No Broncos or Sharks in my team so I still have some time to play tomorrow.

    I have come to the conclusion that Phythian will likely score better than a lot of the budget priced wingers, centres and props and 2nd rowers so I have put him into my squad (13) over Holmes.

    I brought in an underpriced Gagai in the centres and moved Sata,uita into the forwards in place of Perrett via Kaufusi. I am taking a few risks with my side (Pritchard, Phythian, Brown, Moeroa, Gagai and the like) but I reckon it is going to pay off.

    Now for the big call.

    I reckon Elgey is the ultimate disappointing mid-ranger who is going to average under 30 and piss everyone off. I hope I am right or I am going to cop a lot of shit.

    Final side until after tonights game, where I have no-one playing or that I am interested in (apart from maybe Holmes in two or three weeks after the WFB/C positions feels more settled).

    HOK Smith / Pritchard
    FRF Brown / Daifiti / Faufusi / Iapalii
    2RF De Belin / Surgess / Moeroa / Sata'uita / Sironen / Yates
    HLF Norman / Cronk / Jacks / Field
    CTR Gagai / Dalker / Idris / Kelly
    WFB Ruivasa-Sheck / Hayne / Phythian / Cotric / Suli

    see you all after the game

    slightly concerned at the number of my squad I've got playing on Sunday (11). Doesn't leave a lot of margin for error if there are late changes.

    Also can everyone who is signed up for Fantasy Fanatics leagues make sure you are in the Overall Group and the Elimination group. If you aren't contact myself or SI. We appear to be missing one person out of the 127 people signed up for them.

    Only 1 missing out of 127 is pretty good going Random. Well done guys. Very Happy

    Hmm - that would mean an extra forward (Stimson?) to take minutes off Faufusi/KBrom potentially

    if Croft was on the bench, who did you think he would come on for?

    Wasn't likely to be Smith/Cronk/Munster

    I think he will get a crack at some point if there are injuries.

    But they have a settled backline right now, and they won't give him a run just for the experience.

    Moga or Suli. Thinking I need a bit more cash to start the season but Moga has more appeal

    this, purely business with Ponga this year. If they need him, then they will use him. No way do they help create a weapon for another team, to end up playing against at a later date

    I pretty much agree. I think he'll average about 30.

    Which will piss off those who have him in their 17, but be OK for those just using him for a cash cow.

    He's still a better option than any other half under $200k.

    I've moved SMat up to the 2RF...
    Got Hurrell in the Ctrs instead

    no Gurgess... no Wallace

    Hurrell priced at 33... his 80min avg last year was 44

    Risky, but feeling good!

    I was thinking he probably wouldn't play (unless a back was injured). But if his spot is taken by a forward, they'll get used.
