    Because Simpkins has been around for ages and has never been a consistent fantasy option.

    He's also a temporary option because sooner or later he'll get dumped to the bench/QLD cup

    Im wondering whether the Tigers will be more likely to go down the edge controlled by Moses? Is that likely? and if so who is on that edge? Im concerned it may impact on Suli's scoring potential but might be way off the mark. Interested to hear what you all think.

    Just read about a rumour that A Woods and B Matulino may be swapped at the end of the year. Anyone else heard anything along these lines?

    In saying that...any advice on rebuilding an awful team up would be appreciated...

    Current team:
    Smith McCullough
    McGuire Faufusi Yates Hoare
    Surgess Merrin Barnett Whitehead KBrom Smat
    Lamb Jacks Elgey Field
    Moga Idris Talakai Kelly
    RTS Cortic Suli Abbey Python
    With 127k banked

    Pretty depressing right?

    Anyway...main thoughts this week
    Can cash out KBrom for CHiNa giving me enough money to upgrade literally anyone for anyone

    My backs are obviously the worst thing there so either can bring in Aubussen for Moga, or could upgrade Lamb to Norman/CWalker

    Can wait a week or two on Bodene/JBrom if needed


    I would move SMat to CTR, pair him with Idris (assuming he'll start posting some good scores)
    You need a WFB to pair with RTS and Cotric

    and look at bringing in a gun halfback soon

    Yep, played 80.
    I agree on the confidence thing. I'm considering playing him this week, I think he'll have a point to prove. It's just MCK on the bench that worries me.

    Suli and Idris in my 17 YOLO

    No chance of Woods going to the Warriors,he will be quickly forgotten when rep footy comes up

    More like Matulino to the Tigers once Cleary is confirmed coach or Woods to stay at the Tigers or heading to Belmore

    Would Cartwright to Gutherson be a wise move? Cartwright has been nothing more than a burden

    For what its worth:

    http://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/league/91013354/warriors-could-swap-aaron-woods-for-ben-matulino

    The Warriors could swap Ben Matulino for Aaron Woods next season, according to reports in Australia.

    Both players are off contract at the end of the season and the Seven Network has stated that Stephen Kearney is interested in luring Woods to this side of the Tasman, while Wests Tigers have made contact with Matulino's management.

    Thanks Chewie - I think I'm leaning towards that idea
    Trading Moga out for CHN...moving SMat into centres and then bringing Slater in for Python
    Leaves me with 104k for upgrading Lamb soonish

    Cartwright to anyone would be a wise move. I like that trade.
