Shaun Fensom comes onto the interchange and Coen Hess could move into the starting side. Kalyn Ponga replaces Lachlan Coote (calf) at fullback, Javid Bowen replaces Antonio Winterstein (arm) on the wing and Patrick Kaufusi replaces Matt Scott (ACL) at prop.

    Cheers mulvy, I've gone off early!

    Hess probably good for two games on edge for 80 mins. good value if you have him.

    I was on the fence regarding Hess, but with him having the starting spot, and NQL playing average teams the next few rounds. I've decided to take the punt, with the plan to upgrade him to either Jbrom, Whitehead, or Bodene after he gets close to 400k.
    Curious to see what happens to his role when Lolo gets back though

    Good move mate. Have you sold ET. Hopefully he goes big for you which I am expecting.

    I'm on the Central Coast too... on the North end near Newcastle... Pretty strong wind gusts here at times, but haven't had much rain since 8:30... even have some filtered sun coming through

    Yeah the ground looks good. Hopefully the rain stays away.

    According to the Rabbitohs forum Goodwin might be out as his brother passed away overnight with Jennings to the wing and Talakai at center. Thoughts and prayers go out to Bryson Goodwin and his family.

    Sure is. Would be absolutely devastated if that was me. Can fully understand him needing time away from the game to spend time with his family. Sport is great but family always comes first.

    So if Talakai plays I'll start him. Pick 1 to play out of:
    (a) Kelly or
    (b) Suli

    Leaning towards Kelly due to a previous posted stating a 38 average for centres v Cowboys. Suli up against Rapana/Leilua on his edge & I expect the Raiders wanting to atone for last weeks result.

    Thanks.

    Horrible news for Bryson Goodwin :-(
    Hope the team/management look after him in a good way at this time

    Kelly's scores have been boosted by a try in each game.

    Whereas Suli managed to put up 28 in a well beaten team last week - suggesting that Suli has the higher floor if you are looking for a bit of safety.

    Its all guesswork though as we don't really know much about these guys.

    Kelly will probably score again and bust out a 40

    That's some messed up news for Goodwin. Sucks that I have to make a few decisions based on shitty news like that.

    Cheers mate good advice. I can't see Kelly doing much so will go with Suli.

    Yeah I did sell ET, even though I still believe he might punch out some big numbers at some stage this year.
    I've gone with Hess because he will make money... ET might make money (and if he does it will be a slow burn)
    And with Jbrom, W'head, and Bodene bottoming out in a few rounds I need to make some quick cash.

    Pretty happy with my start 412/7 captain played (SJ & Gutherson owner). I'm hoping that Fifita, Surgess & JDB go large & each score 60+. Gutherson must have low ownership because after his score it basically halved my rank.

    Crazy move...or crazy smart?

    Planning to downgrade Ash Taylor (spud) to Jacks (lucky)
    Will give some $$ without losing points (hopefully)

    Other halves are Lamb, Elgey and Field - stunning halves I know...I try and get keeper forwards before investing in expensive backs
