    Still TLT but only for teams that have already played. The 4 teams playing tomorrow name theirs later in the week either Wednesday or Thursday but not sure which day.

    Shanbon did you play the Survivor game back in the day on Sportal?

    didn't see the Knights game, was there any in-game-reshuffling-type reason behind Stone playing 80?

    Thinking of trading out McGuire next round to help with funding for another half.
    I can't afford Pierce but thinking between A. Reynolds and C. Walker.
    My team for next round would be

    C. Smith, (A. McCullough)
    A. Fifita, J. Graham
    E. Whitehead, P. Gallen, S. Mannering, (C. Harawira Naera) (S. Stone)
    S. Johnson, A. Reynolds
    J. Leilua, N. Cotric
    J. Tedesco, R. Tuivasa Sheck, J. Hayne (K. Ponga)

    Does everyone think it's a good idea to get rid of McGuire?
    Cheers guys :-)

    That must McG up in the FRF aye mate?

    I traded Josh out about 4 rounds ago for... Hess i believe it was. I like the way this nathan brown plays, dirty that my soufs didnt keep him. IMO he was showing some good skills last season. A bit corey parker for mine.

    So yes mate i personly think its ok to let him go. Origin, will miss the one game he wouldve been available. Has held $ well enough so maybe. Do you uave yates as well as stone? Maybe another cash out option if someone can switch up to prop

    Cool cheers :-) yeah he was my front row reserve. I had Yates but I sold him.
    I was thinking maybe Crichton and k niko but I don't have another dpp in the second row and would probably prefer a gun half instead

    @OTBP

    I too want to trade in Reynolds, and I can afford him, but he just seems so injury prone. How many weeks did he last this time? 2?

    He has served me well in the past just seems injured a lot of the time.

    Been good to read what SI and GM had to say about Robd0g, as well as @Wolfking's comments on page 50 in the last thread. Good to see the heart and memories.

    Amen to that @Silvertop. Well said. Great country.

    That had crossed my mind also which is why I mentioned Cody walker. It might have only been 1 game lol. Wasn't sure if Reynolds would play origin, pierce is too expensive, cherry Evans is inconsistent, hunt is injured and not keen on Widdop.
    Could bring Norman back in too I guess.

    I played a heap of the games there, but pretty sure I was late or got voted out real early in survivor.

    It's a shame the only real halves you would consider keepers aren't bye friendly. Aside from Reynolds(injury/origin) Pearce(origin) Walker(better wfb) the others all don't have great byes. Might be best off targeting someone that will play 2 of 12-15-18-19 like SJ Cleary Munster Carty DCE but then you have questions over keeper ability from all except SJ
    Was planning for a Cotric to gun half upgrade in round 13 or 14 via Walker but not sure who to target

    Munster's byes are good from that lot and watching him closely for form.

    I still think norman could be handy and would say for origin period maybe it's a Norman/Walker pairing that is optimal and then for season end i think it's SJ/Cleary (bearing in mind that panthers have found no form yet)

    Munster is interesting. Didn't get to see much off him in the halves but from what we have seen he goes looking for defence and still shows his trademark tackle bust ability when running the ball. Was pretty much playing as a second fullback. When he is at fullback I rate him as the best fantasy WFB(above Teddy and Rapana) but with Slater lurking around now I doubt we see him hit his full fantasy potential this season.
