    Trades this week (so far):
    TTrbo to Fuimaono
    Burns to CWalker

    leaves 19 trades and $4K ITB

    Smith Hodgson
    James Wallace Tolman Hoare
    JDB Surgess Crichton Faufusi CHN Elliot
    Pearce Munster Field KNik
    SMat Cotric Idris Fuimaono
    Slater RTS CWalker MWZ

    Not sure which 2RF to put the last R on, or if Knik starts then does he get the R?

    Nicely balanced squad there mate with plenty of depth.

    With Faufusi named on the bench this week I'd throw the R on CHN and Elliot. However, if KNik starts he may run riot against the Tigers so I'd go CHN and KNik in that scenario.

    James far more consistent in his scoring, I'm not taking Taupaus TBs and offloads off him it just isn't sustainable

    last year he banged out a few 50s and a 90 odd in a row then followed it up with 30s and 40s

    James has the same high ceiling and a higher floor IMO

    What about Tohu?

    Just remember that James has only just come back into form. It was only a few weeks ago that he got to a point where he was only worth keeping because he could have only gone up from there - just like BJ Leilua. Thankfully he's just gunned a few games now and is on his way to recovering back all those lost dollars.

    Would you go with Taupau or James moving forward?

    It's absolutely perfect in winter, like a warm and welcoming hug. It soothes the soul.

    Where are you based? If in Melbourne or Sydney I could bring some over with me in June.

    I just wrote out a big long question but realised I didn't have to post it because writing it out helped me figure it out myself.
    It's amazing how much clearer everything is when the options are written out.

    Thanks all!

    Sounds like a deal. I get to bring in Gallen and if he plays Origin I get alcohol. Though I am not keen on XXXX , I am more of a spirits man myself as I like to really hate my life choices in the morning.

    Although I'll be keeping a close eye on any news, I've decided not to take the risk with relying on Knik to start.

    I've decided to upgrade Norman to SJ and downgrade Idris to Fuimaono. Kaufusi will have to wait for next week. Gives me this starting 17 for now.

    C.Smith
    Graham, Tolman, F.Kaufusi
    Gallen, S.Burgess, JDB, McGuire, Chrihton, CHN
    S.J, C.Walker
    S.Mat, Cotric
    RTS, Slater, Munster

    There hasn't been much chat about bringing in A. Rey for Norman. Are people worried about him potentially playing origin?

    Oh Jesus no. I just saw the news/rumour.

    Didn't I just say I had sorted my team out now? Losing both my gun, bye-friends halves in one week would pretty much destroy my team beyond repair Crying or Very sad

    Next time post it anyway in case your thought process helps others.

    But it is a well known phenomenon that just articulating g your thoughts on an issue can bend everything appear clear

    The Origin possibility is there but I think it will be Pearce. I am more worried about ARey breaking himself and me having to trade out yet another half.
