    Ok, so, for TLT we will see additional players named as per below:

    NRL Media‏Verified account @NRLMedia 4m4 minutes ago
    If three players from a Club are named in #origin, Club is entitled to name 22-man squad if all three players are named in Club squad.

    If 4 or more players from a Club are named in #origin, Club can name a 23-man squad if 4 players are named in the Club squad.

    I would like to as I can see him going alright here on, but doesn't suit my bye plans. I will more than likely move him out after Round 15 teams announced.

    Yeah, keeping him until 15 makes sense.

    I was set to let Hoare rot till end of season but not a big jump to Gurgess who could really boost my bye numbers to 17 remaining weeks. It's a gamble on trade preservation and hoping he's got his suspensions out of his system

    If he's in doubt, I hope they just don't name him at all.  Don't do this playing number 13 then pull out bullshit on the day.  If he's out it will be tempting not to turn him into Merrin or JDB for me.

    Chance Niko starts half and Bunji dropped with McC back? I might take a spin on Brown>Gurgess and have some significant cash at hand for upcoming bye trades

    Unless Milf gets snapped in half at origin, he should back up. As a Broncos man myself, we're all still confused at Bennett's decision to play both Bunji + Wadell last week considering how well Niko has been playing at half during Hunt's absense. Maybe the old man has finally gone senile

    As a Warriors fan I was delighted with Bunji's poor defensive reads

    Teddy. Storm have been playing away from Munster's side the last few games and its been frustrating as hell as a Munster owner. Previous to that, he has been given the ball inside the 50 where he was able to rack up lots of cheap TB, teddy style, in the one play.

    Teddy still scored well last game despite their side copping a flogging. If the video ref gave him one of the numerous tries that were disallowed, the scoring would have been much higher.

    Tackle numbers are reasonable close to 40 last 4 but missed too many previous 2 defeats but had no Mannering. Not being used as short option on right by SJ much. Maybe new tactics.

    Tossing up a CWalker > Mansour trade.

    Seems sideways, but I figured Cwlaker doesn't look keen at all. Mansour would be an early POD.

    Other option is Cash in Moga or Cotric to fund a Stone/Whitehead to Tolo. Apart from the fact Cotric and Moga both have high BEs thye both play this week. Seems like a trade better left for two weeks time?

    I have done just that
