    Brown instead of Surgess cost me 70 points and 70k. To top it off I now can't afford Brown to Surgess so have to decided between JDB and Surgess for my final 17. Filthy I made a mistake so simple as not checking breakevens. Praying for Jennings/Talakai or a base price player that I can use my third trade on and grab some extra $

    Ah yes I got ya.

    I've got a theory. 

    Step 1. QLD name Milford and a weakened team in Origin 1 and are duly hammered.
    Step 2. Milford is dragged through the mud and used as a scapegoat.
    Step 3. QLD drop Milford for Thurston in Origin 2 and 3 as well as strengthening the squad (Slater, Holmes etc.) and win the last two and Thurston is the saviour.

    Please don't do this to Milf

    A lot of fantasy players will be hoping for a heavy QLD win to keep Slater and Wallace free for Round 15. However if QLD go 2-0 up then Slater probably plays Origin 3 anyway.

    Reason I'm worried about Slater is that reason and the potential they lose origin 1 and comes in for origin 2 as well. if they go 2 up reckon SLater gets in to finish off his origin career?

    at least that is a future concern

    Milf will only play 1 origin is my bet regardless because JT almost makes origin 1, some say he will anyway and Bennett is taking MILf to NZ apparently unless he is guarenteed to start

    Losing Milf for his 1 decent bye coverage game is the real killer

    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.

    I am down to 15.
    Still deciding on Smith/Fifita out but allows me to use the spare cash to upgrade other players to final guns and get their bye points.
    Ie with Fifita you get an extra 2 games of scoring from say Graham, save 120k which may allow you to turn Niko into a Johnson.
    Then if you have spare trades after byes bring him back and worst case you don't
    Fifita + Niko (bench version) is worse than say Graham + Johnson

    It all depends on the makeup of your team,but forget bringing in cashies with a plan to trade out later.

    I might roll the dice

    Don't hate that, don't know what Vaughan has to do to get a shot

    back row all playing with great form JTurbo, been immense all season, don't like Graham off the pine, both centres been injured or still carrying is a tad worrying 

    Still have faith, come on NSW!!
