    not sure how asiata will go there and those fringe players like jensen and hoare are concerning. may take a punt on spina this week
    Jensen has looked decent whenever I have seen him, hopefully he gets an increase in gametime

    Cook & Frawley for me. I think CHN will only get 20 mins.

    Tough final reserve choice of CHN or Frawley this week. Think I'll play it safe with Frawley

    The dogs bench is interesting this week. No forwards in sight on the extended bench but that could just be due to 4 forwards named 14-17. Thinking Des might be coming around to the idea of a bench utility to cover for injury and we may see Garvey come onto that bench

    Smith McCullough

    JDB Gallen Whitehead Crichton Stone (CHN)
    SJ Nikorima (Hampton Field)
    TTrbo SMat (Suli Talakai)
    RTS Hayne Cotric (Ponga Abbey)

    I'm thinking of going Wallace > Brown this week and even though it may be a touch sideways it gives me better bye coverage and allows me to get Brown before he jumps to much in price.

    This would leave me with 123k.

    Then I'm thinking if Ponga starts no more trades. If he doesn't Ponga > Munster leaving me with 80k in the bank to put towards a gun half (probably norman) in the next couple of weeks.

    Would love peoples thoughts on these moves. I probably wouldn't be making them if I wasn't ranked as well as I am so am really trying to stay in front of the game. If I make both trades it will leave me with 19 trades.

    Open to other suggestions as well.

    Cheers!!

    For what it's worth mate I think they're pretty good trades.

    Every man and his dog is jumping onto Brown by the looks of it, he should fill in a spot nicely over major bye rounds. If he keeps going the way he has been, he could even turn out to be a season keeper.

    I'm in the same dilemma over Ponga, I've already traded him in to Munster but will be keeping a close eye on team lists tomorrow, if he's named to play I'll reverse the trade.

    Apart from that mate, you've got a very nice team.

    I noticed Tualau after being in the extended bench for weeks is not on it this week. Do you still think he might get gametime around the byes?

    Why would they say Mannering could miss 2 weeks but use language such as 'likely to miss this weeks game against Penrith'. Well is he a goner for 2 or is he just looking unlikely for the game? I don't need fake news to get me panicking into NPR'ing him only for him to play and grab a 60.

    Still think he will grab a spot with Klemmer and Jackson out. Doesn't look like any forwards have jumped him based on that bench

    Hey lads, sorry to hijack or insert here, but i am desperate !

    Have a Samsung 6 now keycode (4 digit) locked. I never do this, but certain circumstances led to the new pin today being forgotten straight away Sad

    Are there any secrets or easy ways around it that any of my brethren know about here ?

    Ah fuck it I'm going Rennings to Fuimanao if the rumours are true. Could use the cash because I'm tossing up exploring some mid-range options.

    Does anyone have or even somehow remember what Connor Watson averaged last year? It's probably a wasted trade but in these bye rounds I got to get creative to make ground and he could be good for some points over Origin in the likely event Pearce is picked.
