    There is a chance Munster would move to fullback and they'll run with a Jacks/Croft halves pairing over Origin.

    Should I place more importance on bringing in Graham or BJ this week? I was leaning towards BJ as his b/e is quite low and I guess I have the bank to bring in Graham in next week. Thoughts?

    Turner has moved to prop which now seems like a permanent thing, which opened up that second row position.  Crichton has always been on a lot of people's radars (including myself) and now that he's finally been given that shot, it's simply his spot to lose.  Turner offered nothing on the edges where Crichton is much dominant and explosive.  The front row position is suiting Turner.  I don't see any reason why this would change.

    Anyone else able to make unlimited trades at the moment? I think my system is fucked up but it's letting me use all my trades.

    I might email them and see if it's a problem they know about in case other people are doing it and will cheat the system

    As a rabbits fan and a musgrove owner up til last week, absolutely. Very frustrating first month and a half. Im thinking though the setup and rotations that are in place are working quite nicely, so im thinking he sticks to it.

    Crichton might not play 80 every week, but for his price and performances he could be a keeper. There's absolutely nothing indicating that he won't play big minutes every week, bar madge of course haha. But sutton is an 80 minute edge player, why not crichton?

    I'm on my work computer and it was letting me make two trades at a time and then make two more and two more. However now it won't let me log in, so I feel it may be a system error

    Sounds like Hayne got through training today without any problems. "Moving freely" in full contact session.

    ^ Nice . That's exciting news about Hayne, will leave him in the NPRs this week though just to be safe. RTS, Slater and Ponga all been scoring great as it is.

    yeah, if he happens to start i'm not sure if I'll play him just yet. Though may throw an R on him if I can't find something suitable to do with Musgrove. Need to offload Musgrove but don't have the money to turn him into Graham yet.

    Been off Nikorima but the draw for the broncos in the next few weeks makes him a little more tempting.

    Who do I pick as my last reserve:
    (a) Cook or
    (b) F. Winterstein

    I'm currently on Winterstein as he'll play 80 mins & Cook has Farah to share mins with. Thanks.

    Need some serious help with trades. I think this week has the hardest decisions yet (probably the same for most people).

    Smith ,(Brailey)
    JWH, Kaufusi, (Hoare, Yates)
    ET, Whitehead, Surgess, (Bodene, Stone, Simpkins)
    Jacks, Cleary, (Frawley, J.Field)
    BJ, M.Jennings, (Smats, Cotric)
    Teddy, Slater, RTS, (Hayne, Uate)

    23k in bank

    I think the halves need attention but these were the 2 options of was thinking of this week...

    1. ET ---> Crichton, Uate/Yates ---> red dot dpp
    this banks some $ for a Jacks ----> Norman/SJ trade NEXT week, but I'd have to play Frawley or Jacks in my 17 this week.

    2. ET ----> Crichton, Jacks ----- Niko
    Lots of people have said this trade is really risky. And With only 22 trades left I can't afford to be taking too many stepping stones on my way to get guns unless they are absolute steals. Unfortunately I missed the Hess train and early Crichton buys so am a bit behind in value.

    If anyone else sees any potential trades please chime in bounce

    Everyone is taking Whitehead over Bodene this week. Is there any reason why besides the unlucky injury run Bodene has had?

    I feel like he will be more solid than Whitehead in the long run.

    1. Either way you're going to make three trades so kill off a spot and get in SJ next week. He's a keeper and you can set and forget with your halves.

    The reasons why:
    If you trade to Niko you'll have to trade him to SJ/Norman eventually but you will also miss out on the points during this time period as well - get keepers in as early as you can from here on out as far as I'm concerned.

    How many players are people generally hoping for over the byes? At this stage I only have 7 for the first byes. I've never properly bye planned before because I cbf but I'm doing alright this year so I kind of what to push it and see how high I can finish instead of just worrying about a few head to head wins.

    Also with a couple more Ws I can guarantee myself to remain as a mod and not get the sack, SI and myself are top of the ladder currently.

    I really want n brown, would be great for byes. doesn't have to set the world on fire, I would be happy with a 45 average.
    I'm getting a bad feeling though, something just screams 2016 Alvaro, huge ppm given the minutes but that's the question, will he get the minute?

    Ahh, you're not wrong robloomes, some big decisions to made this week.
