    I think people underestimate the Knights. Where we usually get beat is the centre passing to the winger or second rowers to centre. From the calls I've seen saying player X will go large against Newcastle it just doesn't seem to happen

    Too late to get on Yates? Thinking he might be a better cash cow option than any of the wfb options out there. Forwards generally make cash faster, right?

    What is annoying about this is the boys play in the last Saturday game where most trade partners for Hoare would of already played and been locked out

    I never trade anyone in based on a set of fixtures, fantasy doesn't work like that

    Can go Phythian - CWalker

    You just have to keep on eye on whether RTS plays or not. CWalker or AE (and saved trade) if RTS doesn't play?

    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 think Koro is a sell, he won't get any more than 60 mins and just doesnt seem to be getting the attacking stats. Dalker is a hold for mine, you got him knowing he could get the 26 scores as well as the highs, so why balk at his first one? He scored a nice 40 in round 1. Unfortunately if you are going to hold, hold strong as I would expect another bad week against the cows until the props come back and make him some room. Still potentially a season keeper, but maybe not for a few rounds

    In rnd 1 the only player not named in lower grades (for cows) was Bowen who was obviously wintersteins replacement. Fair clue.

    I have the option of Paufusi or Hoare, thinking Paufusi maybe better longer term ?

    but less job security, if he gets the nod and sticks, Hoare the better option as you say

    I'd like to add that in fairness to the mighty Tigers, 1 or maybe 2 of those Raiders tries were actually moderately difficult to defend against.

    Is it too early to dump Idris? I feel like he's just not going to live up to any expectations whether it be as a cash cow, or back up to my centre pairing. I was thinking Idris or Talakai - Hoare (going to keep Hayne in the interim)
