    Are we kidding, for example this Arey to Crichton last night - it's all Crichton. Once Crichton has the ball (rewatch from that point only) he does numerous things/decisions which result in a great try. If the nice pass from Arey results in Crichton running an almost straight line and scoring then u may have a case. But just being the last pass - no way.
    Who passed it to Arey ?  Who made Arey's last meal ? Het my drift lol... bit extreme i know. But how far back do u go.
    Same as a kick that is mishandled by the defense and then the kickers team score, no way that should be a TA.

    Let the food throwing begin !

    When I first started playing fantasy that would of been a ta. Now they seem to be stricter on what defines a ta. If the person scoring the try has more work to do in scoring the try they tend not to give the try assist. So last night Crichton still had to beat Tedesco so I can see why they didn't give it because he made the try not A-Rey. Just like last round when they didn't give Norman the ta when Gutherson scored because Gutherson made the try himself by stepping, changing direction, etc. The problem arises because all the fanhub scorers (or whoever does the scoring) don't seem to be consistent. One night a fanhub scorer doesn't give A-Rey the ta. On another night a different fanhub scorer will give A-Rey the ta. This is why fantasy has a lot of luck involved because depending on which fanhub scorers are working on a specific night & a specific game you might get a lenient fanhub scorer or a more stricter fanhub scorer.

    Completely agree with you. If you as the try scorer have to decide to do something other than just run the same line and put the ball down then 9 times out of 10 you have in my opinion scores the try by yourself. Yes soneone else may have busted 3 tackles and passed to you but if you have to decide to step the fullbsck rather than back your pace then you've made the deciding call that led to the try. How about if your fullback busts the line steps the fullback, but gets dragged down just before the line but has a great play the ball meaning all you have to do is pick the ball up from dummy half and dive over - who's done the most work there? The problem comes in determining how much work you have to do to score the try as that can be a very subjective thing. While I dont completely agree with it, making a blanket rule of if the last intentional touch was from your team and then you score then award the TA. Doesn't matter if its at the 1m line of the 99m line. Removes all subjectivity and applies the same basis throughout all games

    @Aardvark Ratnick

    Happy birthday mate - you're my third favourite Aardvark.

    --

    As for my week, so many ups and downs. Surgess/Crichton/Gallen/JDB and Tolo somewhat then Cook, Suli, Frawley and Teddy. Disappointing. Averaging around 48 points per player which I guess is alright but I think this round is going to have some monster scores to it.

    CNK didn't play NSW Cup so there's an outside chance of him making the 17 today.

    I own him too & keeping but I can carry him as an npr. He will be an 80 minute gun in the big bye rounds when Farah plays origin.

    Whilst I agree with this, for fantasy purposes it would be much better to take the subjectivity out of it and have last touch as the TA. Realistically Reynolds did no less than every centre who draws and passes and gives to the winger who steps inside the fullback coming accross which is always a try assist. The kick one is very subjective but I'm inclined to say they are TA's too given the kick forced the error which then led to the try. The one that gets me though is the hooker giving to a forward crashing through 3 tackles, how the fuck is that the good work of the hooker enough to reward with a try assist and not give it to Norman the week before and then not give it to Arey for the good pass selection. He held it up and chose to give it to Chricton instead of out the back like they had done for most of the first half. Rant over. I say this as a non Arey owner.

    and if Farah doesn't end up playing origin, we are stuck with a 260k flop playing 20 mins a game. Maybe Robbie played so many mins and started because it was the Tigers and they towelled us in round 1. Revenge game.

    If this happens I will trade to Pritchard if he's still in good form & isn't hampered by any injury concerns. But it looks like Farah will play origin.

    Yes CNK is playing today. Maybe if he can keep Maumalo out he'll be useful for round 12 even

    Thanks WL - I was leaning to that as well...and even if CHN smashes it I'll be happy with his price rise :-)

    CHN will probably still score well off the bench. He normally does his damage later in the game around tired forwards.

    I can't backup this statement though, going to put the R on Niko instead
