    Nope, Welshy was so confident he went with the total as we even discussed Teddy would be out for origin (I might have made some snide remarks about teddy being made of glass as well, not sure). 

    It makes sense to go with total though as the original debate came about because i was saying you'd be better off starting with Rapa if you were going to choose Teddy, as Rapa would get you more points for the season. It probably carried over from the ultimate drafting, where i was also arguing the merits in drafting Rapa before Teddy for the same reasons. Still, its closer than I would have liked at this stage, which is the problem with these blokes, one week and they can overtake the other quite easily.

    Edit: Interestingly 401 v 326 in ultimate, i wonder why its a much bigger gap, whether its the scoring or the stats collection.

    Be all over him if he was 160-180k

    Take away his tries and it's 20pts then 30pts in his two full 80mins. Not sure he does anything other than byes cover but already carrying a couple of uninspiring awkwardly priced byes guys - i.e. Jennings and Talakai

    Likely a wasted sideways trade for mine unless you have trades to burn or a bad midranger back that desperately needs replacing. Looks a unit though and better than he did at Souths

    To trade in now? I think James is pretty risky but isn't Fifi due to miss like 5 of the next 10 or so weeks with origin and byes?

    How long is French out? Takarangi guaranteed back to centre when that happens (or Moses joins)

    @Archer is right mate, I took the riskier bet option as Teddy misses an extra game for origin but I'm confident going forward Teddy only scoring 1 try so far is giving me the confidence that he will explode for a few weeks in a row soon enough and propel me into the lead

    If Hayne makes the starting 17 - play him or Suli

    Just on Hayne, if he goes gangbusters the next few weeks do you think he will get a spot in Origin? If so, I wonder if that's playing on his mind to put in the good performances.

    Does look decent to be fair Avuaa so wouldn't be surprised if Takarangi becomes a ball playing lock like interchange for them if Moses arrives and/or French returns

    Trying to find a decent out for Musgrove. Would mean SMat comes out of centre so is risky as hell

    Fai might get some game time during the bye rounds as the Broncs will lose Thaiday, Gillett, probably McGuire and possibly Sims. I wouldn't expect much more than that though. If he does well through the origin period he does have a small potential to be a small minute bench player here and there. Although I suspect once Bunt is back the Broncs will keep running with a utility so that should stop Fai being an AE risk later in the season.

    Early season Fai was actually ahead of Offa and nearly got a crack, but it seems offa has won the race to replace TPJ, with presumably good qld cup form (i haven't seen or heard if thats true).

    Broncos only play one major bye round so unless there is injuries you'd expect 2 out of 3 of those forwards named above to back up after origins so not alot of room for a cheapie.

    Personally I don't think Korbin has done enough to warrant origin selection but that said we are fairly thin on props. It also depends if we go with incumbents aka Myles, Lillyman, etc. I think Jarrod Wallace has certainly thrown his hat in the ring too and i'd have him ahead of Sims.

    Someone mentioned it in the last week or so, may of been on here, that Wallace reminded them a bit of Gallen in the way he's been playing. Tend to agree. Writing off Wallace to start the year in fantasy has been a big regret.

    Hayne owners:

    http://m.nrl.com/desperate-titans-ready-to-risk-hayne/tabid/10874/newsid/105784/default.aspx

    Will train today and Friday in the hope to prove fitness. Sounds promising though.

    As @onthelast said above, I've no doubt Hayne will want to put in some good performances to push his case for origin.

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

    There were times they swapped but Naiqama was Centre most of the time, check his position during the Eels first half tries down his side. Its great Cleary can see the same thing as everyone else and what JT couldn't. Swapped sides of the field 2 weeks ago, didn't work last game and has hopefully been thrown on the wing permanently. Next stop for Kevvy is reserve grade and I hope he won't be offered a new contract. Harsh I know but the brain dead guy doesn't learn.

    Yeah I agree that Korbin probably hasn't done enough yet but he certainly has been talked about and may get there through sheer number of injuries and the declining form of some previous walk up starters. It would certainly be a big loyalty card for Myles to get selected this year and Mat Scott is going to leave a gaping big hole in the front row. Wallace would certainly be in the mix which most would not have expected at the start of the year. Hopefully Napa will be over his injury by then or we are going to lack some size and mongrel against a very good blues pack.

    Having trouble choosing which of the three for Crichton:
    BLeary: only traded him in last week
    CHN: Could prob squeeze an extra $20k out of him
    SStone: Named starting, potentially 80 mins?

      Current date/time is Wed Oct 18, 2017 4:02 am
