    Why are his minutes fluctuating lately? Is he an 80 min player or not?


    He was coming back from sickness a few weeks ago and he copped a head knock the week before. This week he will assuredly be an 80 minute man

    Who's everyone Captaining / Vice Captaining this weekend? I'm thinking Gallen (C) Surgess (VC). Or would it be better to take a punt on CWalker (VC) against the Eels?

    Benched first week back from being sick and then copped a knock the next game but was set to play 80.

    But can I count on him to be a keeper in my ctrs? It relies heavily on him playing 80 week in, week out.

    I do want bye friendly players but I don't want to just throw trades around either. I'm looking for keepers

    I'm starting to see the merits in trading Smith out but when I have only 15 trades left I don't think it's a gamble I'm able to make. Got to get the big guns in at WFB for some of these underperformers come seasons end. Can't go running around trading Smith out and in

    Might VC Semi for something different. C might be Gallen if I bring myself to bring the shitto back in.

    Would people sell Aubusson and McGuire if it meant they could bring in Mannering and Gallen?

    I wouldn't sell Maubbs personally, but only cos he is so damned handsome.

    I was thinking of taking a walk on the wild side and VC'ing SJ. I mean his shittest score is a 43 and while he's banged out a fair few 60's he hasn't had one of those big 80-90+ games yet. However with the way the Warriors are going I'm going to have to say nay on that.
    Kearney seems to have coached the dancing out of his game and they play a lot more boring style of footy. Now I've said that he could go huge but still a big risk.

    I'm feeling G-Train C and Crichton the VC. I'm almost game enough to take Crichton on as C anyway but I've been screwed before.

    Yes well he is bye friendly but well I realise I could have a backrow of JDB Surgess Mannering Gallen with Crichton and Elliot as reserves I think dayummmm. Just not sure if I should or not bounce

    If I buy Aubbs I can't do the loophole because I'd have Fui sitting out as my AE :/

    Hmmm, SJ is food for thought.

    Had been planning on Smith to Friend but Farah is dirt cheap if he gets close to 80mins each week.


    How many trades do you have left Booze?

    I was thinking of doing the same but using 2 trades on Smith would be a luxury for me as it puts a serious dent on my trades tally. Not sure if I have that luxury at the moment.

    Been without internet all day (thanks Telstra/NBNco), so been trying to do a bit of forward planning for trades. After this week, I'll need 8 further trades to get to this 17 (players to come in bolded), which will leave me with 7 trades.

    Smith, Friend
    Fifita, McGuire, Graham
    Gallen, Burgess, Mannering, Crichton, Merrin
    Johnson, Munster
    SMat, Cotric
    Tedesco, Walker, Slater

    Centres are probably a bit weak (if i get a good run without forced trades I might look into upgrading them at the end of the season), and I'd prefer Macca to Friend, but realistically that's about the best I can do.

    Losing Milf hurts and will probably trade him now

    Smith - KPritchard this week 
    Captain Crichton

    Potentially Having Slater for 15 + 18 is a welcome addition

    I went Slater to Semi earlier, might duck Suli off instead now.

    I can't decide my last trade. I have a few pretty good options so no doubt I'll end up picking the worst one.

    I can have one of Brown, Kaysa, Aubbo, Mannering, Semi or Gordon. I'm sure there's more that haven't come to mind yet

    If Slater doesn't get named like a lot of outlets have suggested then his 15 + 18 coverage is too valuable to lose mate
