    I would rule out that rumour.  Foran will definitely be back next week against the Bulldogs.

    How sure are you of this happening? Do you have some inside info or know someone at the club?

    Just curious is all.

    Can trade Saifiti to Wallace just leaving me with enough to go Phytian to Moga and have 2k spare. No brainer right? Gets rid of a stuttering mid ranger and a NPR going nowhere for a midranger who looks like either making a good bit of cash quick while scoring well or getting himself to the next tier of scorers, and a gun cashie NPR

    What about Lolo Shanbon any love there ?

    He was unreal last year(but not gun fantasy wise) not sure he can play any better so not sure if he will increase to full gun. What i like about Barnett is he played what will be his general role and minutes and scored 61 in base stats, add to that last year he proved that he can get TBs and Offloads. He will have a high ceiling and most important for guns a high floor. I think by the time everyone decides he needs to be in final team he will coat them 550k Take the 80k discount and extra points now. Lolo had extra time this week and somehow ran for almost 300m, thats not sustainable.

    My problem is i dont have the money to upgrade anyone to him and the only gun i was disappointed in is Cordner. Im 50/50 on making that trade, last year i was really conservative on trading early to hopefully come home strong but that was a massive fail so now im thinking just risk it.

    Well said Shanbon, Lolo doesn't have the tackle stats to sustain an elite gun avg

    In low attacking stats games he will go high 30s-40s.

    I'm considering Taylor - Jacks and DSaifiti - Barnett + banking $75,000, how does that look?

    Cheers for the insight makes sense, I have the cash for any forward just have to make right choice.

    Do it. Better trades than my Prior to Wallace and Pythian to Suli but I'm going to ride Wallace to JBrom. I like it.

    Re Moga, most recent articles today mention he is back training, Kahu when asked downplayed it and said it was precautionary and expected him to play.
    Another article said he was pushing his body to the limit due to returning back from injury.
    = Training the house down haha

    I have both Sione & Lamb in my 17. I'm not sure having 3 if I get Barnett would sit well with me.

    I dont think you can go wrong there. Only risk is Slater pops up in a week or so but really doesnt sound like that will happen.

    I can go any 2RF/FR after Fifita/James. Manners?

    Barnett seems like a great option and saves some $$$

    Other option is to keep Saifiti and grab JBrom after his price drops a bit more

    Apparently Tapine is out for 3-4 weeks with Broken fingers. Paulo would be coming in for Priest (who's suspended for 1 week) so I'm not sure who's next in line for the bench spot. Could see Whitehead move back to the pack and someone else fill ctr or maybe Turner comes onto the bench or some other fwd. Either way its probably just one more reason to not be too hasty on judging any scores you see in that Raiders pack. Taylor will be back next week and hopefully Croker not long after that so there is going to be plenty of change and shuffling in the next few weeks.

    How do we rank all the Ctr/Wfb cheapies in terms of scoring potential?

    I would go:
    Talakai
    Moga
    Kelly/Suli/Cotric (coin flip)
    Idris (until back up to match speed, then next to Talakai )

    I don't think Whitehead will move back to the pack. Will this mean Bateman will play big mins. Bateman & Tapine rotated at lock I think v the Cowboys.

    It could do i guess. As i said in my edit though, any of these increases are only likely to be temporary.
