    Oh no not more Madge bullshit where he names Burns but then shifts Fui to centre, someone to wing, AJ to fullback, Walker to 5/8, Sutton to back-row and so on and so forth. I mean I want my 12 points from Burns and just think about disheartening it'd be for the guy for Madge to name him but have no intention of playing him.

    I actually hope there's a late change of Walker to 5/8 because he has been trash at 1 lately and this is his last week for me unless he gets back in form tonight.

    Yes it is basically a flip of a coin really. No doubt I will make the wrong VC selection between Surgess and Crichton..

    Also Welcome to the forum.

    Reposting from end of last thread

    Don't listen to SI, he knows how to loophole like he knows how to post a gif.

    If your captain is a 2RF and you have 6 playing 2RFs on your bench it is no problem.

    You can still sub your captain out for any of your 2RFs that are yet to play.

    Your captain can't be a reserve, so all you need to do is select a new 4th reserve from another position.

    What will stop you from loopholing is if you have 5 reserves that will score points. You only get 1 AE so if your captain isn't the lowest score not seletced in your 17 then you'll be stuffed.
    Liverpool_Bulldog is in this position this week - less than 17 players, but no halves so can't select a full 17.

    lol cheers i think i got it.

    vc surgess captain lolo if surgess goes boom take the reserve off n.brown put it on a bye/origin player then swap captain lolo for unreserved brown?

    Gallen can't become a reserve - he can only be an NPR.

    If Burgess goes big and you want to loophole

    Sub Gallen for reserve 2RF.
    Make sure you have 4 reserves selected, and that Gallen is the only NPR who will take the field.
    Gallen will become AE

    Thanks milchow
    All my other 2rf are playing,
    I have:

    B. Smith
    Einshueth
    Taumalolo, Gallen, surgess, (JDB), (Marsters) (Crichton)
    Munster, Reynolds
    Fuimaoano
    Radradra, C. Walker

    I have my last last reserve on C. Smith as I don't have enough to make up 4.
    So I just have to take the r off Gallen and put it on Hayne or something?

    You can't take the R off Gallen, as Gallen can't ever get an R

    Sub Gallen out for Marsters.
    You will now only have 3 reserves
    Select a 4th reserve - Hayne is a fine choice

    Gallen will be your AE

    VC - Crichton
    C - Gallen

    So I recommend either trading Crichton out before he is injured or hooked for a huge amount of errors or at the very least, VC/Captain Surgess because he'll go HUGE.

    The last time Surgess played under 70 minutes he scored 96 points.

    While I have never actually performed the loophole I believe once you sub out your Captain he cannot be reserved, rather his score will be collected as an AE of the NPR you sub into your side to take the Captains place. So for example if your VC goes big sub out Gallen for an NPR (someone like Mannering or another player who won't be playing this week) ensuring you have 4 reserves in place before you save the changes.

    I'm a loophole virgin too

    Loophole poophole. I'm captaining Surgess from the get go. Largely due to the fact I'm away on hols so no idea if I'll remember to make any changes later

    There's an unconfirmed rumour doing fb that Surgess is out tonight. I wasn't going to post this as I stress it's unconfirmed but I saw a couple of us were thinking of getting Surgess this week so for those people make sure you check out the final team lists.

    Thanks mate, first time I've done this so worried I'm gonna stuff it up hahaha. So do I just play with 3 reserves for now or leave my other r on c. Smith to make up the 4.
    Sorry for being a pain in the arse.
