    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

    Hmm... This is another option that wasn't one of the two I didn't end up getting people to help me with. It sounds like a good plan.
    I think I am just concerned about having to play a bench Kaufusi. I got a little burnt with playing some bench-fuckwit last week.

    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

    I may still post for advice anyway, as I just realised I would have to be sure whether Hunt was playing or not before the game on Thursday. Thankfully late mail has been pretty accurate lately.
    And Mango gave me a 3rd option to think about.

    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.

    I'd be willing to gamble that he's not playing origin. Being injury prone is a concern though. Owned by 3.85%. Averaging 51 this season but 47 the last 3 rounds.

    Walker has said to the Rabbits upgrade my contract or let me walk. Given them to the end of the week.

    For Sash's team.

    Joining the Kaufusi - Graham train makes a bit of sense

    Probably trade Norman out - is C Walker the best option?

    with Field and Niko the reserve options he needs another half especially if Hunt returns

    he already has a load of rabs and gallen so will b short R13, so didn't suggest Walker/ARey

    Why hold off on a Walker trade just because of this news? He will still play the year out. I don't think him suddenly not performing would be an issue since he wants more money.

    You're right, probably.

    But we have seen what damage a sulking Moses has done. Worried it might happen if it escalates any further.

    So. C. Norman -> A. Reynolds/C. Walker (Or another HLF. Not that many look like good options this week.) & F. Kaufusi -> J. Graham, leaving $144 000 in the bank. (Assuming we take Reynolds who is the most expensive option.)

    Yeah, it's just a possible headache one doesn't need if looking to trade him in. Was looking at him for Walker but since I have Turbo also, he can wait a week to see how it plays out.
