    With Mansour back, im pretty happy with how the squad looks. Wouldnt mind something decent in the 2RF though, if anybody is looking for a FBW/FRF boost...

    I tried to waiver him but was further down in the RFA order. Should be a solid couple weeks for him but knowing griffin anything could happen with Peachy maybe playing hooker at some stage

    I think I was lucky that Graham didn't start to bank Tariq's 34. Not over yet though, there are generally updates at the end of the round aren't there?

    They don't generally change too much. I'd say you're safe!

    That 2nd Round Rapana pick up made big plays this week. Horrible week to lose against Archer. Now tied at the top of the leader board.

    Yep, felt good to surge into first place off the back of Rapa. He has the 13th highest total so far this season and is the only WFB in the top 25 so i'm happy enough for picking him early over someone like say Hayne.

    @Welshy you know i love BJ i really do and the offer is always tempting, but I'm trying to strengthen my own pack and the loss of Surgess isn't something I could cover. So going to have to decline, seems we are in competition with each other for getting a decent forward off other teams Razz. With Mansour back in the team my backs are strong enough but they are having to do a LOT of the heavy lifting to make up for the likes of Hoffman/Barnett/Matulino/Proctor/Guerra/CHN

    The argument on Rapana was never talent nor scoring ability it was where he was picked, could of had him at least 2 rounds later haha

    Yes mate, both on decent runs at the moment, both won 6 of the last 7 matches

    I thought it might be a little too much, can I tempt you with Frizell + Leilua for Slamming Sam?

    Yeah but my point is I shouldn't have been able to pick him up 2 rd's later. Going by the reaction i got, he was undervalued by most but its pretty risky to rely on people doing that within a draft. An 8 man league means 16 players are picked in the first 2 Rd's, if a player is going to score within the top 16 you can therefore make a strong argument for picking him that early. If he's doing so in a .position where there are a lack of top scorers, its even more reason he should be highly contested.

    To give you some idea of the WFB scoring, the next highest players who can be placed at WFB are as follows in terms of total points: Nofu (30th), Cody Walker (37th), Lafai (47th), Guth (53rd), Teddy (65th). Yet if i had of picked Teddy in the 2nd round I'm sure it would have received half the scorn. Mind you its an awfully long way from the finish line so i could still wind up with egg on my face, but I've gotta toot my horn while I can right? Razz

    Friz + BJ, I'll have to give some serious thought, even if its just cause i never expected you to give up Tyson. Its unlikely though,  Surgess and Kapow are carrying my soft pack right now, feels like the QLD game 1 side Sad

    Yeah... not quite as good as picking up Macca (currently 2nd Highest total to date) in the 10th rd mind you, but still pretty good. Also those stats i posted were a little off, turns out they didn't have the week 13 scores included, with them Rapa is up to 5th.  Beating Heart

    Its not all roses mind you, I drafted Crichton in rd 18... only to drop him early in the season because i couldn't carry a non scorer amongst my injuries. Now i get to see him bust out mammoth scores for Welshy at Ctr  No Bang Vomit
