    Wouldn't McInnes with an average of 56 score just as well as your 3rd FRF or 5th/6th 2RF pretty much? Without the risk of having no backup hooker?

    CS9 never gets injured so I don't need a backup. Even if he does Smith2 covers him. I'd rather have Fifita & Taumalolo over McInnes. McInnes is primarily a defensive hooker & that's how he gets the majority of his points & if the Dragons were at the bottom of the table his average would be higher. McInnes will still score 50's but he won't get the boom scores that Fifita & Lolo do. The reason for getting Lolo is to cover my 2nd hooker & he averages 8 points more than McInnes.

    Which one:

    a. Hodgson and KNik out. McInnes and Radradra in. $68K ITB
    b. CHN and KNik out. Tolo and Nu Brown in. $71K ITB

    Leaves 14 trades.

    Titans better not do something funky like naming Hayne in jumper 18 and screwing up our DPP plans!

    I'm all ready to shift Cotric but relies on Hayne to centre due to some DPP fails and dumps like Jennings. Great player Cotric but peaked now for mine and time to set up the final 18

    I'm also thinking of a using 1 hooker, frees up so much cash..

    My round 14 Team would be

    C. Smith (c)
    J. Graham, J. Paulo
    P. Gallen, S. Burgess, J. Taumalolo, (A. Crichton), (A. Elliott) (J. De Belin)
    S. Johnson, A. Reynolds, (C. Walker)
    J. Hayne, N. Cotric
    J. Tedesco, J. Rapana, R. Tuivasa Sheck 

    Then hopefully after that, B. Spina to P. Vaughan. Thinking of keeping Elliott.
    Still have Fuimanono, and Radradra to help with funding.
    Does it sound that crazy to get rid of McCullough?

    Definitely not any option with Nu Brown. Just missed a big part of his value already (R12)

    I am running 1 hooker for rest of the year but the only way to do it is your main hooker must be an 80min guy and your 2nd hooker must be their back-up (handcuff).

    Im going Smith/Smith and i think its the only option.

    Thinking

    Kikorama to Mcinness

    and

    Cotric to Lolohea

    gives me 17 this week and 14 for round 15

    McInnes should be an easy upgrade for Smith in the later rounds if I don't have enough Moolah for Pritchard to Smith

    Great minds.

    Exactly my moves and hence my post above that we can't have Hayne being named in bench or reserve awaiting origin!

    Brailey to McInnes seems to be the smart trade to make this week. So why am I having my doubts?

    I think because 8-9weeks ago and with seggys arrival and McInnes form, it was such a no brainer but now it does feel a bit sideways whereas a niko move is the no brainer

    Niko definitely gone this week. Are people looking at Teddy while he's playing Origin or after? He's super cheap

    You can have Fifita and Taumalolo while still having McInnes. Infact most people will do that. Replacing McInnes would give you a 6th 2rf or 3rd frf. You are using the number 1 frf and the number 1 2rf when working out averages as if thats what your choice is. ATM it would be McInnes or Taupau or JTurbo. All 3 have similar averages but running McInnes gives you insurance incase Smith cops a one week injury/suspension
