    They also said the "sneaky tip" on thurston is that he will play.
    As a Manly fan I hope he doesn't play.
    With the bye next week they would be mad to risk him.
    I also traded him to Teddy last week which pretty much sums up my season.

    Made the same trade haha. No regrets. Had C on teddy.

    Ill get trbo back once hes played a few games. If he plays this week it may be a easy return and 25-30 pts anyway.

    The clowns at nrl.com strike again.

    I was fairly certain Segey was due back around the time of Brailey's R12 bye and had flagged the Brailey to McInn trade for last week..

    Checking the casualty ward last week and Segey was listed as due back Rd 18 (when Sharks have a bye, so 17 or 19). So that trade and cash raising took a backseat.

    Of course now he's back a month+ earlier than reported.

    Fuck you nrl.com. Go back to writing your shit 3 line articles with zero content.

    I think i'll be going Ryan James personally, all the arguments for Fifi are the exact same thing every other man and his dog will be thinking so I might as well use the Graham annoyance as an opportunity for a POD

    Is there any reason I shouldn't make a Whitehead to Lolo trade this week?

    I saw something on reddit yesterday about the different jerseys teams wear.

    After just 13 rounds, we have seen 73 different jerseys in first grade NRL this year. Its so ridiculous. Besides collectors, how many people bother trying to keep up-to-date with their teams current jerseys when even the main jersey might only get worn 10 times in its career.

    I normally wear my 2004 Tigers jersey (mainly orange) to games, but do have a later version (black version from 2008 I think) that gets a run sometimes.

    I have 8 or 9 Tigers jerseys. I didn't buy any after the early 90's till the merger, I think mainly because I didn't start putting on weight till about 15 years ago Embarassed

    Since 2000 I've bought a version of every 2 year (ish) change. Except last year's and circa 2012's abominations. This year's looks good but has a terrible cut at the bottom hem, like it curves up from the back to the front like a dress shirt, weird. The material is REALLY light too, looks good but feels/wears like shit.

    Somebody dead on spot on predict SST's coming weekend score please. Not sure if to ride him through the byes as initially planned or cash out to allow juicyness elsewhere.

    McInnes/Farah
    Vaughan/Taupau/Brown/McGuire
    Gallen/Burgess/Lolo/Crichton/SST/Capewell
    SJ/Frawley/NuBrown/Foghorn
    Peachey/Moga/Fui/Fine
    Nofo/Munster/RTS/TRD/Dufty

    107k itb and only 11 trades.

    Anyone have some deep wisdom for Rev ?

    For me, the planned trade was always JWH to Fifita after round 18, but at the moment JWH plays four rounds before then and Fifita plays three. Conservative estimates 4x40 = 160 and 3x60 = 180. But even without that points bump, looking at the BEs there could be a considerable difference on the current $180k gap that could make the Round 18 trade difficult and force other compromises down the road, so think best move is to get set-and-forget prime prop in now.

    Other option is getting eg. JWH to James for 4x50 and bigger short term scoring than Fifita, but then with trades decreasing I don't have Fifita in rounds 19-26 and the 20 points and $70k aren't worth it.

    Id prob go fifita this round. You would hate not being able to bring him in after rd 18 if his price is out reach.

    Frustrating not having enough players one week, then having to make decisions on who to play and trade the next.

    I'm calling SST as a 52.

    If I bring in Fifita this week he'll end up going of with a HIA in the first 10 mind and score 6 fantasy points...

    Let me do all Fifita owners a favour and not bring him in this week...

    You're welcome
