    Upgrading Taupau, could  be useful.

    Or giving yourself a better WFB/CTR option to cover for Munster (although not sure who would be the best bet)

    Thanks. Thinking about either Croker or Aubusson as i can reach either with one trade from Hayne or Walker.

    McCullough - Friend

    With the timing of games this weekend I have to decide before Friend's playing status is confirmed.
    What would you guys do?

    Friend for me. Much more potential to go large which is what you need.

    Still undecided on McCullough trade.

    Most above me have McInnes - so would mostly be insurance against him going large if I got him.

    if Friend was definitely fit and playing I'd get him. Might wait a week, and bring Friend in next week - assuming he will stay in price range

    The other consideration is that if my main goal now is to concede 1st is too far away, and just try to stay top 10, then McInnes is probably a good move

    A nice round 1000 this week. Don't think I want updates.

    946 this week.

    Sitting at 11 and doubt that will be enough to get me back into the top 10.

    Just have to keep going and hope for the best

    I snuck into the top 10, at the expense of R&T, who had slipped to 11

    Ranked 93rd here. Hoping to stay in the top 100 in my first season back since 2012.

    Snuck deeper into the top 200 now at 170, but with the likes of Milf joining next year I'm on the precipice of losing L1 status Evil or Very Mad

    4 trades left. 199k in the bank. Thoughts on what I can do here to improve my team? I'm definitely making 2 trades this week because why the hell not?

    Smith
    JDB, Vaughan
    Gallen, Mannering, Taumalolo
    Cleary, Walker
    Crichton, J. Thompson
    Roberts, Trbojevic, Edwards

    4 reserves are McInnes, Surgess, Brown and Taupau.
    Leftovers are Twal, Lane, SJ, Frawley, Fuimaono, L. Brown, Whare and Dufty.

    I was thinking SJ > Pearce/ DCE and bench Walker but not sure on the other trade. Maybe I should bring Teddy/Rapana/Munster in and bench one of my WFB's? Or maybe bring someone like Gillett in whose been in great form of late? I can get JTurbo but his form has been off a bit lately.

    Bit of a lottery with WFBs. Whoever you bring in could score badly and brilliantly with not much logic in between.

    I'd upgrade Taupau as your fourth reserve. That's what I'm planning to do this week.

    Yeah I was thinking Taupau but I also have the Surgess problem. He's playing injured and has come off the field and not come back on 2 of the past 3 weeks because of his ribs. I'm just not sure which FRF/2RF is the best to bring in since I have most of the best ones and JTurbo/Papalii's form hasn't been great lately.

    Congrats mate, you are killing it right now. Good luck for the final few rounds!

    Im all out of options in my team and my choices of captains, PODs and starters has been both poor and unlucky. Im slipping back in the ladder round after round. Good learning curve though.

    Looking forward to having another crack next year and if luck goes my way I may even nab a top 10 spot still.

    Currently worked my way up to 78th so hopefully I can finish in top 50.

    I've actually done really well over the last 5 round (except for 1 round).

    R19: 1,029
    R20: 1,025
    R21: 844
    R22: 1,004
    R23: 996

    Got knocked out of the eliminator in R21 and that was the round CSmith was in doubt but scored 100. Sad

      Current date/time is Thu Oct 19, 2017 11:15 am
