    K.Ponga was limping badly during that 2nd half of last weeks game. Hope he is OK to suit up for one more game giving Coote one more week off.
    After round 9, it will be Rep week with all clubs having the week off, so don't risk Coote and give him an extra week or so to get it right.

    Of course, none of this matters unless Ponga is good to go....................

    Anyone keen on Lewis Brown. Currently dpp 2fr/ctr @ 138k but that price will rise 5-10k based on his score v Canberra. He is low enough to be a cash out & seems to be getting more & more minutes lately (played 51 mins v Canberra). It's interesting in the Canberra game that Sironen only played 34 mins. Was there a reason that Sironen only played 34 mins because L. Brown came on for him & never went off. Was it an injury to Sironen or is Barrett now looking at favouring Brown over Sironen. Thoughts.

    It will be interesting to see if L. Brown is on the bench or starting this week.

    He'll only tempt me if L. Brown is in the starting 13 playing 2fr & I can play him in the ctrs. If he starts & at that price what's not to like. There's very few cash out options or cash cows atm.

    Man you and I are playing a similar game this year! I was just thinking the same thing. I'm a trade whore though so it will be hard to fight temptation. I think from memory we have similar teams and looking at your trades on the last thread I made a number of those too. I'll put mine out there too:

    Rd 1: Python to Moga
    Rd 2: Dalker to Hess cheer
    Rd 2: I.Papalli to Abbey
    Rd 3: Suli to Slater cheer
    Rd 4: Moga to CHN cheer
    Rd 4: Kromwich to Bodene
    Rd 5: Brailey to Cook
    Rd 5: Elgey to Frawley
    Rd 6: Yates to Tualau
    Rd 6: Lamb to ARey
    Rd 7: Jacks to KNikorima
    Rd 7: Sironen to Crichton  cheer

    Was about to organise a search party mate, haven't seen you post for a few weeks I don't think.

    I literally just wrote down 6 or 7 things I know about you that I reckon would actually get me close to finding you in real life. Then I deleted them because I realised that all I need to do to find you is check out every indoor pool in Wellington on a Friday night until I find you.

    Yeah, looked like ponga picked up a ankle injury during the game, and you can see with his second try he basically limped over the line. Hopefully he can pull up and have 1 more game.

    Siro played 55 the week before then bown came on and stayed on. He is worth a look if siro is out of favour and brown impressing barett more.

    sedart fo ynitsed elbisrever

    R1

    R2 Daifiti > Matagi; Brown > Wallace -- probably just better to use one and go daifiti to Wallace

    R3 iapalli > Hoare; Elgey > Lamb --- shithouse, but LG to Lamb will be OK in the long term

    R4 Moses > May --- may as cash out DPP hlf-2rf super useful (moses too flaky)

    R5 moeroa > vaughan; phythian > CHN --- learning how to make quality trades

    R6 matagi > frawley; faufusi > brown -- may have jumped the gun on faufusi but brown has been quality and I was worried about Tofu Harris coming back - prob. need to treat frawley as a trade out only hopefully will come good

    R7 wallace to tolman; yates to whitehead -- again jumped the gun on wallace (too early) but I am expecting tolman to have a higher ceiling; yated to whitehead will be better in the long run

    R8 jacks > niko; siro > crichton mixed bag again. it the long run my trades will work out I think, getting set for origin but need to learn from this year.

    no trades till origin hey?

    My biggest regret was not getting Ponga

    RD1:
    Python to Suli
    Perrett to Winterstein
    RD2:
    Sironen to Hess
    Talakai to Jennings
    RD3:
    Moses to Jacks
    Moeros to Vaughan
    RD4:
    Cordner to Thompson
    Hayne to Harawira-Naera
    RD5:
    Brailey to Cook
    RD6:
    McGuire to Brown
    Yates to Crihton
    RD7:
    Jacks to Niko

    Plan this week is to go Winterstien to Gallen which should mean i can leave the forwards alone for a while and work on upgrading the backs

    high scoring match up for myself and @secret weapons in lowly but highly scoring L7

    681 vs 673

    de belin & vaughan + 8 points vs slater & faufusi

    we both have CS(9)(c) and RTS left

    still have not given up hopes of 1000 but now not likely?
