    I'll be playing Seg Welshy. At the beginning of the week/end of last week I wasn't enamored with the idea but seeing the Sharks line up this week gives me a little more confidence in him. The problem is that he may only be around for another 1-2 weeks playing decent minutes with Brailey tracking for a likely comeback in the next fortnight. I'm comfortable with him for this week tho.

    Clysdale wasn't named last week but he snuck onto the bench after cuts didn't he? What worried me last week was after Brown went down with the head knock Seggy didn't come back straight back on, not until 5 minutes from the end of the game

    No Guarntee Kodi plays out the game though with Benji on the bench.

    Yeah, Clydesdale was 19th man and came in late and that may well happen again with him being named 18th man this week but then there's the risk that Benji comes on for Niko anyways. So really it's the lesser of two evils. Who you hang your hat on is a risk either way, I'm taking the gamble on Seggy.

    I need the win this week, so ideally need the best player ha-ha in a matchup with Archer where I can go level on points with in 2nd place or go first if Random loses and I marmalise Archer on the scoreboard.

    every time I played KNiko in his starting role he went big for me, but I love Seggy with that sharks bench

    Ah yes, it's also very very tight between 5th and second in L1, could be anybodies. Will be an interesting last two weeks.

    If I can account for either Weapons this week or Spectre next week then minors are secured, if I lose both it'll come down to whether Weapons can win both to go even with me. After being literally 5 games clear a month ago it's been a tough road for my cats recently. Losing Macca, Moylan, Hurrell etc hasn't helped my cause but I'll still bring it home.

    If RTS could do something this week that would be great.

    was getting benched until Munster was not named. Hopefully pulls his finger out and tries to beak the line for once rather than plodding it up

    My "against" just ticked over to 11094. Next closest of the teams still realistically alive is Spectre on 10508. If you pricks could tone it down a little, that'd be great. Pump the brakes.

    Although, technically, quicksand in 6th is still a mathematical chance. 2 of me, KFP, Spectre need to lose both games and QS needs to gain ~300 points/week on us.

    Didn't you get the memo? Only B/L has been hurt by injury.

    300 points extra per week might be a bit hard !!

    I did say _mathematical_ chance, but its doable. 650 v 350 isn't unachievable. The bunch of spuds KFP has running around, you could make most of it up in the one week....

    Oh no, it doesnt matter how much you beat your opponent by. You have to make up the 600 point deficit on KFPs "for". If you win by 1 but beat KFP by 300 twice, youll leap frog him.

    Keep living that pipedream mate.

    My relegation last year was a mistake, just like the NFL one hence you fixing it.
