    Is Whitehead actually the new Maubbs though?

    I reckon the bench CTR idea was awful to begin with, JT has realised this and sent Idris to get 80 mins in lower grade to get match fitness back. Not risking him playing 80 in NRL yet

    I've heard he's a bit average and 35 average score 2 seasons ago NYC whereas Burns averaged 46 last season

    Milchy could confirm these NYC scores, or are you sure of the source mate?

    Phythian > Yates via Mitchell and MC-K
    Papalli > Hoare

    He has about 100k more in him, but will start slowing down soon and slow burn. Could do worse.

    I have a question that might need to be fielded by a Guru such as @Milchcow
    How can I gauge how long it takes for a cashie to peak? I am looking for Sironen and Kaufusi to become Whitehead and Bodene in 2 weeks, but I am not sure they will even be ripe by then. The projections in the fantasy coach are helpful but they are only putting Kaufusi in for 25's, so scoring 35-40 makes their data almost useless.

    Would you sell Koro and Dalker for Abbey and Hoare and run in 17 if it meant to could make Palavi Mk II and Sironen into Whitehead and J Brom in a week or 2?

    I take it Pavali Mk2 is Papalli ? lol!

    Yeah and I think he therefore has low fantasy capital and little upside for my team. Right now anyway. With Talakai on the outer too I feel like I need to jump on one or even two cows this round. Just a matter of which one(s) Neutral

    Gun? No. Underpriced? Could maybe make an argument for it, I haven't looked at what average he's priced at but if you compare his last half of the year with the first half, the second half was much better so if you expect that to be the norm now that he's settled into the role/more experienced, then he's probably underpriced. That said, I probably wouldn't get him in my fantasy team and i love #jackattheback

    Though who knows if Idris comes straight back into the 17. If the Tigers get spanked again then.. probably, but I think its a 'wait and see'.
