    Last 2 weeks Suli has played centre and Naiqama has played wing, despite being named the other way around.

    Thinking of bringing in Crichton in for Sironen and Niko in for Jacks.

    Want someone to try and talk me out of it? Why are people reluctant about Crichton. Who is gonna come and take his spot? Seems like he is pretty solid in there.

    Think ill chuck my team up and see what people think

    Smith, Brailey
    Fifita, Vaughan, Kaufusi, Musgrove
    McGuire, ET, Crichton, Siro, Yates, CHN
    Norman, Milf, Jacks, Elgey
    SMat, Idris, Suli, Kelly
    Turbo, RTS, Cotric, Hayne, Abbey

    28 trades and 20k in the bank, in need of downgrading Musgrove and Jacks i think.
    Any suggestions

    Jacks/Lamb - Niko and Sironen/ET/similar 2RFs - Whitehead/Crichton are going to be popular trades this week

    I think Siro to Crighton is a good trade. I bought him in last week and very happy with the decision, as they say, fortune favours the brave!

    Here's my team. I'm ranked 137 but only got 22 trades and I think my lack of cash cows could start hurting me. Any big problems anyone can foresee?

    Smith, Brailey (r)
    JWal, Fifita, Faufusi (r) Leota
    Gallen, Manners, ET, CHN, Sele, Whitehead (r)
    SJ, A Rey, Hampton, Frawley.
    Cotric, Sione, Idris, Rennings
    Guth, Slater, RTS, Abbey, Burns

    146k in the bank. Was going to go ET to Crichton and free up some cash. However as one can see my choices for a 4th reserve.
    Can go CHN to Crichton with 33k left over but leaves me direly short of money makers.

    Anyone with a suggestion here?  Similar issues to me.  I think Jacks/Elgey are your best bets to move on, preferably Elgey.  If NuBrown wasn't going to end up a shitty AE later I would consider him.  But I think siad shittiness outweighs his "potential" to score me bye points.  There is not a lot there to cash out to in the halves unless you take a red dotter for the rest of the year.

    I am also considering Niko-not a downgrade as such and will also end up a shitty AE, but plays Rd 12 and the could be a good step up to a 3rd Gun half mid season.

    I'd say there's a very small chance of him becoming a shitty AE. If he's not on the bench while Segeyaro is out then I can't see any reason why it would happen later. He's definitely preferred as a half than as a hooker and should hopefully cover for Maloney over Origin. Once Nikorima's run is over I'll be cashing out to Brown.

    Fair call, cheers. Anyone else at the Sharks that would keep NuBrown out?

    ET to Crighton, Idris to Leilua and play Cotric as your 4th reserve.

    I think Lamb will come good soon, already have Whitehead. I think Crichton is a good trade just want to be aware of what the risks are?

    As Maloney's replacement during Origin? Only Mortimer. But he's been out injured for quite some time now so I'm hoping Brown will get the run. Brown has been kicking goals for Newtown reasonably well so that could help his case in covering for Maloney and has been playing pretty well overall (at least stats-wise - scored around 70 fantasy equivalent points last week by very rough calculation). Maybe wishful thinking but I would think he'd be above Morts in the halves hierarchy.
