    I see the above as solid. Latrell and Smith = beautiful.

    44 highest score for a team lol.

    I know! And here I was before season working out how to get Panthers into my team because they were going to kill it. Ended up without any.

    Still think Merrin will be worth a look in a few weeks. Pretty much zero carries today, that won't happen again, and if they struggle in the middle like they did today his minutes will go up.

Smith & J-Brom work together & it is a combo they have developed over the years. Smith darts out of dummy half & hits J-Brom on the burst. None of the Storm props will provide Smith with the same points potential.

    Do u have smith WL ?

    I know its a simple answer, but as it is Smith it will be him that finds another way to excel on the field and for fantasy still produce. Its cam smith, one of the best ever.

    Mannering, Sione, Siro, SJ, Norman, Kelly, RTS to play. Need my halves to fire to catch up but it's a long season, think was in 15k place after first round last year but still came top 25.


    We're almost in the same position lol. I'm 464/10 with the exact same players to go except I have the Guth and Lamb to play instead of Norman and Kelly. What an underwhelming week. Oh well it's a long season, final results will sort the contenders from the pretenders.

    As a roosters supporter I cringe every time Tupou receives the ball coming from their line. He appears to have no understanding of what is required for those particular phases of play. He can be very productive for other players i.e Mitchell but overall he is a loose cannon that the chooks do not need.

    I'm kidding. I can't give you shit after you defended us today Sad ; although if I'm being fair and honest i think it was probably forward, no more so than the 10-15 that happen directly off the ruck every game mind you (oh and when the penalty count is 11-3 you should probably get to behead one player without punishment... but that's another argument)

    I am still fuming about the raiders cowboys game

    1) penalty count - I am more angry over the when penalties were given, almost always when cows coming out of own end. Yet when they are laying on us coming out there was none.

    2) Thurston can get away with anything but nobody says anything because he is Thurston.
    Example santo bringing back ball after it was kicked dead. Thurston changes his line and shoulder charges him to slow him down. Now if that ball doesn't go dead ...clear penalty and possible week suspension. No penalty given but when we tap the ball slightly off centre we get slowed down and brought it back. Because you must play by the rules.

    3) sin bin don't get me started by then I was so angry I had lost all reasoning,

    4) forward pass in golden point .....  marginal. ...... there were probably about 10 in normal play just like that not called.

    5) the try at the end just summed up the raiders luck perfectly

    I left my house went for a run and came back at full time of titans game...... can anybody fill me in on any fantasy relevant news.

    648/12 with Siro, Smat, Lamb, Tturbo and RTS to come

    Happy with my Mitchell pick. Disappointing scores with Prior and Cleary.
    May look at Prior to Wallace this week

    If Thurstom had thrown that flat ball, no call and try 100%. Thought the Raiders were robbed! Titans looked like the knights in first 25 they were fucking horrendous, Elgey and Taylor couldn't tackle a pensioner crossing the road! Hayne didn't want to be there, was slow and disinterested all game, Roosters were quality mind, Pearce and Keary combined very well and were in on everything

    What's your team look like? That's a great score with 5 to play. I'm 533 with 4 the same plus Kelly Norman Moeroa instead of Lamb

    Based on what I caught (and my opinion is not worth much at 10 for 473):
    Hayne and Elgey were fantasy irrelevant and only converted terrible scores into short of acceptable scores by tries to both. Scores mitigated by ownership but elgey is not a player in your 17 at this stage. Hayne may have space to improve.
    Proctor injured for half a game which probably gave jwallace more playing time. He posted an it increase in score accordingly. May make a trade in option if u see him keeping some of proctors minutes.
    Roosters across the park owned the titans and the back 5 ran with a lot of energy to bust tackles and offload almost at will. Makes latrell Mitchell and Michael Gordon interesting.
    I had about 5 scorers in that game but Pearce and JWH performances didn't seem to translate into points. Looks like a good year though for the tri colours.
