    No, I would keep Musgrove, and maybe just look to upgrade Siro to Whitehead in two weeks time.

    Thanks. Looking for coin where I can, but this one is probably a bit much. Paufusi only played 34 minutes for some reason too.

    I'll predict Sitiveni Moceidreke on the wing, Cody at 5/8 and Sutton back into the 2R. I imagine Critchon back to bench and not sure who will drop out. Reynolds is in some doubt because of his shoulder injury from last week, but I expect him to play. If not, Cook or Farah to HB. I haven't heard anything about an injury to Talakai. I think that's bullshit.

    I wouldn't get overly excited about Siti. He scored 4 tries last week for Norths. Each one was a fall over the line job. He has played centre, FB and 5/8 in Juniors.  He's versatile, but I reckon he's good for one week only, barring more injuries or suspensions.

    Same here mate Musgrove will be in my npr's. I actually think Musgrove would of started this week if he hadn't of had that brain explosion just before h/t when he gave away that penalty. I read somewhere that Madge said players would have to earn the starting spot & I think that penalty pissed him off so he's punished him by keeping him on the bench. Who knows Madge could even make a late change to his starting line up & start Musgrove. Will you reserve Musgrove if he's starting?

    Hope Paul Carter starts tonight should be worth a few penalties for the Bunnies!

    Can anybody see anything worth trading in my team? Honestly I feel like my team isnt too bad. Feels like I'm missing out by not trading though. Will bring in Whitehead next week for Sironen like the masses, and either another gun 2RF or Elgey - Gun half.


    MY team:

    Smith - Brailey
    Vaughan, F Kaufusi - Hoare, Yates
    Surgess, ET, JDB - Crichton, Sironen, S Mats
    SJ, Jacks - Elgey, Field
    Talaki, Kelly - Suli, Idris
    Tedesco, RTS, Cotric - Hayne, Phython

    Not the greatest team obviously, but feels somewhat solid, maybe lacking 1 gun at this stage? Not sure.

    $255K in the bank. Any ideas? Thanks!!

    You may have to make a trade if RTS is ruled out or will you just cop an a.e.

    To me:

    Brailey needs upgrading in two to three weeks time. Approx $280,000

    FRF - As Solid as most
    2RF - ET and Sironen can be upgraded in time, Smats needs to move to centre given your second row depth and lack of centre depth.
    Halves - Servicable and don't really have anywhere to move really. Money best spent elsewhere for now.
    Centres - Idris isn't playing at the moment, how long before he does, could trade to a fullback such as ponga or slater by moving cotric.
    Fullback - Hayne and Pythian not doing anything for you. Ponga is a good shout now given the injuries. Should have three to four weeks in team.

    Spend your money wisely, I would probably go Pythian to Slater or Ponga at the very least. You can afford to sit on the other trade I guess.

    Pick 2 to play Z. Musgrove, L. Yates, P. Kaufusi, J. Brailey, K. Elgey, R. Jacks?

    Exactly as Foxsports predict. As long as Talakai starts I'll be happy

    That's a hard one. I would have as my reserves Brailey, Kaufusi, Jacks and Ponga, so probably not. If RTS ruled out however, it would come down to Musgrove or Sironen. Probably give that dud Siro another shot.
