    My initial trade thoughts are:
    Yates out - Crichton in (via McGuire)
    Lamb out - K-Nik in

    Smith (Cook)
    Fifita, McGuire, Wallace, F. Kaufusi
    JDB, Surgess, Crichton, Hess, Winterstein (CHN)
    SJ, K-Nik (Jacks, Field)
    Cotric, Talakai (Kelly, Idris)
    Slater, RTS, Ponga (R. Jennings, Abbey)

    I have 2 questions re my above line up:
    (a) Last reserve = Winterstein or Cook. I've gone Winterstein due to his current form & left Cook in the npr's due to the Farah factor.
    (b) Play Talakai or Kelly in my ctrs. It's not that I have a new found confidence in Talakai it's rather because Kelly will get destroyed by Leipana.

    Thoughts & thanks.

    what makes people want to reserve CHN if hes on the bench? I wouldn't think he'd get decent mins?

    He has a high ppm so if he gets 30-40 mins from the bench he should match that in his score. There's also a chance he could even start with a bit of doubt over the fitness of JFH & Carty.

    If CHN replaces Hiku on the bench, cant seen him playing more than 20 minutes barring injury to the forwards.

    Latu, Browne & Leota are waiting in the wings for similar opportunity.

    CHN's PPM is inflated by the fact he's scored 2 tries in his 3 games so far.

    I wouldn't be that confident in him going gangbusters off the bench

    Yip agreed, kelly could get destroyed and Talakai is up against Moga who isnt the best defender

    0.96% of teams own Gehamat Shibasaki. I hope he gets a run so i can see all the interesting nicknames people would come up with.

    That is one cool name. No wonder he's been picked up by some teams.

    Was thinking, imagine a blues backline like this..

    J. Tedesco
    B. Morris
    J. Leilua
    J. Dugan
    T. Trbojevic / J. Roberts

    Maybe Moylan on the bench..

    I'm probably going to miss out on BJ as i can't do a center upgrade for another few weeks but might be able to pick up Croker instead when he bottoms out. Still a good alternative?

    Croker was the better pick last year for the run in. Hoping the same is true this year

    Based on recent form Tolman and JGraham are up there.

    Im tossing up bringing in BJ or Whitehead this week. I think BJ will score more this weekend, but whitehead a better long term prospect.

    Thinking Yates >> Whitehead is better option than Cotric >> BJ (which is all I can afford unless I do Ponga to BJ via Cotric)

    If Lepiana go berserk Whitehead on same edge surely benefits.

    5403 people so far have traded in nikorima this week.

    Lewis Brown has been traded in more than Leilua.

    This wreaks of renegades.
