    I guess I'll hold off on that Gallen trade

    I must have missed what he said regarding Gallen. He pretty much confirmed Hayne though. What did he say re Gal?

    If Gallen plays origin I will rage mightily at the fantasy gods.

    Main reason I picked him was lack of origin duty.

    Had him from season start. If he plays i am still happy with his output the first 11 rounds. Will be sorry to trade him out, but only playing 3 games in 7 weeks, he will have to go.

    Just before they go to the ad break & as Ikin wraps up the segment you can hear Kent ask Daley so he's in contention then & Lauries starts nodding. The context of the body language between the 2 of them looked like an admission from Daley that Gallen's in.

    I thought that was about Hayne? But I'm not sure, I might have missed it, I think I might have been getting up and grabbing me and the GF's dinner plates cause I knew an ad was coming.

    When do the teams get announced? It's usually the before camp which is about 2 weeks out, is that right?

    If they are hinting at it today, I'm sure it will become clear before the next round kicks off

    Having played fantasy nrl for many years now, I've never really paid much attention to the scoring statistics for individual players, mostly due to never really being in contention. Having paid much closer attention this season, I'm surprised how inconsistent the scoring is. There is a lot more luck involved in what an individual player can score in any given week than there should be.

    Don't get me wrong, I don't think it's an easy job with 26 players on the field but it needs improvement, a lot of improvement. I mean a tonne load of improvement.

    Yes? Or overreaction following a shitty scoring week? (Not to mention losing my main H2H by 14)

    Yeah we all get grumpy with it every now and then. Like you say, tough job, but would personally prefer they took longer reviewing games. That may not be financially viable though.

    I think a good improvement would be the TA and the Last Involvement or whatever it is in SuperCoach. Reward one or the other, but reward one of them each try so it has to be given, that in my mind is a good start.

    Sounds like Moylan wont play Origin. But things change all the time.

    Aubs ( Love now Rip ) not playing last week meant AE and losing H2H by 6 points.
    Stay calm. Then of the bench this week. Aubs is trade raged gone. (though there's 9 days to reconsider)
    I want Munster in know, but SOO for him??

    No chance Munster plays Origin. Sounded like Kev will go with Morgan for the utility and there are enough options in the centres.

    On the subject of Qld origin side, wasn't Felise Kaufusi 18th man last year?
    Playing terrific footy this year so must be getting close.
    Jarrod Wallace would also have to be considered, especially with Matt Scott out, Nate Myles only getting released from the old folks home for weekend games, frees up 2 spots.
    Surely they don't stick with Myles???

    Yep, ws Felise, just googled it after thinking it was one of the brothers for some reason.

    With Myles, will be very surprised if he isn't in the 17.

    If Gallen is picked for Origin then Daley will have sunk to an all new level of stupidity. He had his big farewell game, kicked a goal and got carried off. Are they going to have to do that again and hope this time he means it when he says he's retired from rep footy.

    People come out of retirement all the time sure but hey when someone like Lleyton Hewitt does it, at least he isn't denying a young player of the future an opportunity. NSW pick Gallen, we lose again and all we've done is deny someone like Jake Turbo a well earned spot.

    I don't think Aubs would be a sell until he is confirmed off the bench on TLT. Even then I would be tempted to keep him for two games and cop the ~50k price drop for an 80 minute round 12 player and sell him round 13 (couldn't hold until 18 though). But unfortunately I do not have Aubs so not really my business

    Was just about to say similar-I bought him as a set and forget Centre Round 1 so not concerned about his 61 BE. Will hold him till Round 13 and see what happens. Trent Robinson has rested Cordner in the past after Origin.

    Aubs price is on the way down. Munsters price is on the way up.
    I can trade in Munster for Aubs now and maybe not after round 10. (it's easy for some to say -$50k) The best long term thing to do for overall points is?

    Do it now then mate. I am personally banking on Maubbs getting his minutes back and not sold on Munster at 5/8. If he busts out another 50 plus in Round 10 I will reconsider.

    I just caught up on 360 WL, I am 90% sure it was Hayne he was referring to.
