    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

    Makes a lot of sense what you're saying mate. I'm down to 17, need to make 3 trades this week so will be down to 14. Really sweating on Brown to play so I can save a trade.

    Ok, after a mass debate on possible combinations and a few position switches, I have cum up with the following;

    F.Kafusi to Graham,
    CHN to Mannering,
    Talaki to Radradra (via Suli)

    round 12 team
    Cook,
    Graham, Brown, Fai
    Gallen, Surgess, Crichton, Mannering, Whitehead, Elliot
    A.Reynolds, Nikorima, Frawley
    Aubusson, Fuimaono
    RTS, Cotric, Radradra

    18 players

    round 13 Whitehead to De Belin or Taumalolo

    Smith,
    Wallace, Graham, Brown, Fai
    Mannering, Elliot, (JDB or LOLO)
    Nikorima, Frawley
    Sione.M, Aubusson, Suli
    RTS, Slater, Cotric, Radradra, Hayne

    18 players

    sound good ?

    Nobody can give you anything more than an educated guess on that one. This is Madge we're talking about here, only two things are for certain. Surgess will line up at Lock and Adam Reynolds if fit will play halfback. Anything else is prone to change at any given moment.

    In my opinion, if they don't want Cook to get majorly unhappy then they might restore the balance in minutes between the two.

    Agreed with regard to Farah and Cooks minutes. It wouldn't surprise me if Daley had asked to condition Farah up to 80mins, or if Farah asked to be given the opportunity to play 80 to show he still can.

    Now that he hasn't got the callup and for no particular reason other than NSW are going a different way, then I can see it returning back to normal.

    I'm steering clear from Farah. If I trade Smith, then I'll just try to offset Hodgson.

    IMO Thurston will play origin 1. He said on abc after the match last thursday that he was 90% good to go and if the game was next week hed have played. 13 days between that game and origin 1, he'll be fine.

    Kev just named milford so bennett cant block qld taking him into camp as a precaution

    Max trading this week gets me to the following 12 players to run out R12:

    HODGSON
    TOLMAN
    (C) CRICHTON, BURGESS, GALLEN, ELLIOTT
    SJ, KNIK
    COTRIC, FUIMAONO
    RTS, WALKER

    Still leaves a decent quality 15-17 to go out on R13, after picking up an even cheaper Graham.
    After this week 16 trades, $46K and a few more cows to milk as needed for the remainder of the season (CHN, Elliott, JWall, MWZ, KNik, Fui).

    I'm light on for bye planning but it meant that I avoided Brown and Graham troubles last week. Also keen to see how JBrom comes back in a couple of weeks - could be worth a low priced shot (maybe they should have negative points for scandals).

    It would be great if Brown was good to go, hopefully, but I'm not holding my breath. Only trade I'm looking at at the moment is possibly Kaufusi to Aubbs via Brown. Fucks my DPP but what do you do. Brown to Aubbs if he's ruled out for a number of weeks. COuld go CHN but if he gets an extended run, he might be worth keeping. Probably not though.

    based on their avg you will get 25-30 points more but would have used up two trades.

    points in tough bye rounds far more valuable. 16 trades left with 3 being made this weekend, I need to take the risk
