    I can switch Matagi to either Whitehead (BE 49) or Jromwich (BE 53)

    With a break-even that high it is unlikely to increase in value though and they could decline further. I can use Matagi as an NPR for sometime longer in any case.

    First, if I choose one, who should it be and second, is it worth putting it off for another week?

    Is anyone else tempted to take a risk on Isaac Luke as a Brailey upgrade? Looked good in the weekend. Has probably bottomed out in terms of price. If warriors can increase their ruck speed he should get more of his trademark dummy half runs... Has been a gun in the past.

    @awanamafia maybe but he aint kicking goals at the moment which was probably 4 points for him last year. so thats about around 35-40k under last years starting price

    I would wait another week to see how they shape up... in my mind Jbrom has the edge, playing 2 of the main bye rounds, but he hasn't hit form yet

    Interesting option. Way I see it Foran showed in one game he lifted up RTS and Johnson, possibly Luke too. If he strings a few good scores together then it's because the Kiwis spine is clicking at the Warriors and he'll become a nice little POD option.

    I think he's a good option for a Brailey upgrade if you don't have the money for an upgrade to Smith, Macca, or McInnes
    I also think that Cook is a better option if Farah is out for a while

    Anyone think Hodgson is worth considering as a Bradley upgrade?

    Re J-Brom. I watched the Storm game & thought he was running with more conviction & looking like the old J-Brom. I do agree though with previous posters as to me he looks nearly there form wise & if you can just wait a week & then buy him. He blowing out the cobwebs & making a few uncharacteristic errors atm.

    Did you know he has a sternum injury & he was needled up for the game. The Raiders do have a good run now which is tailor made for his style of play but I'm always hesitant bringing in injured players & usually don't. He could succumb to the injury at any time & what if they have a comfortable lead in a game will Ricky give him an early shower to save him from getting re-injured. If he was fit/injury free I would have no hesitation in saying yes to that trade.

    Welcome back KFP. This forum has been far too polite & civil since you've been on holiday. Good to see you slinging insults straight away.

    Thanks WL, no I didn't know that. I'm actually struggling to keep up with Nrl this year, and it shows because I have several players in my team who are so-so. Sounds like Hodgson is a big punt but maybe one worth taking because the only way I can catch up with the teams in my h2h is to do something a bit different. He played 80 last week and if he can get a few attacking stats going might be a bargain.

    Good to see players who I rage traded out are now getting good scores (Gallen, ET, Sironen & to a lesser extent Sione if he had of played the whole game). To all owners no need to thank me.
