    Is Ayshford marking Leipana? I'm bringing in BJ this week I have decided and that would make it even more delightful.

    I'm almost certain teams change it week to week and team to team so I'm never certain which side lines up against which. Leipana are right side but I'm having a hard time remembering whether Ayshford was Left. Someone on the GH had the following and they are usually more alert to these things than i am:

    GH Poster wrote:Ken Maumalo and Solomone Kata vs Rapana and Leilua

    Ayshford and David Fusitu'a vs Cotric and Croker.
    Although someone else said that apparently Ayshford and Maumalo switched the week before so could do again, any kiwi bru's confirm?

    Way too many trade options this week. Hard to settle on anything. If Frawley is named to start this place will blow up with trade panic.

    Agree DK. When you take a step back and keep it real though we're all obsessing around similar players and moves and if you rewind just 6 weeks to around pre season could you imagine working a whole bunch of trades around Ben Hampton and Crichton!

    The latter has always promised so IS mighty tempting but I've taken the blinkers off and thinking and feeling more picks like Surgess and Whitehead despite the price attractiveness of others.

    Crichton may well outscore Surgess for much cheaper but it's a nice security blanket not having to worry about rotation or coaches or minutes and Turner in the front row just bothers me as it surely can't be long term

    Money is tight, times are tough lol

    Smith, Brailey
    Fifi, Vaughan, Kaufusi, Musgrove
    McGuire, ET, KBrom, Siro, Yates, CHN
    Norman, Lamb, Elgey, Jacks
    SMat, Idris, Kelly, Suli
    Turbo, RTS, Cotric, Hayne, Abbey

    See anything worthwhile amongst that lot?
    30 trades, 54k in the bank

    Very jealous of Vaughan. Nice squad

    depends a little how you're going...

    If you're in a high position a solid move around KBrom/Siro/Yates to Gun (any season keeer) +1 (ideally Crichton, but more likely leary) would be good. Kaufusi is enough storm backrow cover for mine.

    Otherwise for a more maverick move I would be looking in Lamb's direction for a switch to Milford giving you some explosiveness potential in the halves

    Currently ranked around 13000 haha so need some explosiveness lol
    Could perhaps cash Yates out to Leary.

    Your squad looks good at first glance but really you have too many mid rangers. You need to downgrade a cow or midy and upgrade Lamb/Kbrom/Siro/ET. I would look at getting funds for Siro > Burgess.

    With Hunt out his low scores should become 25pts (not 10pts) which you just have to grin and bear with Milf to enjoy when he busts out a 70 for you!

    Yeah even at 13000th mate (which is not that bad early doors, top 15% of all teams) your safest move is a KBrom/Yates (or siro) to Burgess/anyone type play

    Might as well keep musgrove for byes

    You guys are tough teachers.

    Option A
    Lamb > Hampton
    KBrom > Surgess leaves 66k (could bring in Frawley if named to start)

    Option B
    Lamb > ARey/CWalker
    KBrom > Leary leaves 100k roughly (could trade out Elgey for a smaller return)
