I would suggest that anyone wanting to know if it will work for them post up their entire 25 and proposed VC/C.  That way we don't have to guess or ask as to whether you have stuff going on that wrecks it: eg more than 17 playing, or 2 playing hookers etc.

    B. Smith, C. Smith
    Paulo, Eisenhuth, Graham, papalii
    Gallen (c) S. burgess (vc) Taumalolo, JDB, Marsters Crichton
    Munster, Reynolds, Johnson, Feeney
    Fuimaoano, leuilua, Hayne, Fine
    Radradra, C. Walker, Tedesco, RTS, Rapana

    Bold are playing, milchow was kind enough to help me.
    If surgess goes big, I swap Gallen out with marsters.
    Then I put the r on Hayne
    The only bit I don't get is when I swap Gallen out, will he automatically become a reserve?
    Do I need to pick 4 reserves at the start if I only have 3 to choose from that are playing.
    Maybe I'd be better to put the captain on Munster as I can easily switch him out with a NPR

    My team is:

    McInnes, Smith(r)
    Bolton, Felise, Taupau, Liu
    Surgess, Crichton(VC), Gallen(C), Whitehead, Merrin, Sele(r)
    Munster, Lolohea, Laybutt(r), Feeney
    Fui, Lafai, Idris(r), Brown
    Holmes, Slater, Edwards, Whare, TRD

    All good for the loophole is I swap Gallen for Whitehead or Merrin?

    He must have tonnes of trades left or knows something we don't if he's trading out two guys who score that well.

    I've only got 11 trades left. I'm considering players like RTS and Hayne keepers until I'm forced to trade them.

    Thinking of cashing out Hayne this week due to Byes and SOO. Looking at Laybutt.
    Issue is Laybutt may only play tonight and while Hayne will only play 1 game in the next 4-5 games he does play the rd18 which is much needed. What to do, what to do ?

    Also have he option of moving Muster down and looking at a half

    Tempting on the back of a season low minutes with JT Morgan and Cooper out there will be plenty of extra responsibility for him to take on. I got cold feet due to 5 games of 57 or less minutes. Can't have that from a captain

    Pretty sure Hayne misses 15 and 18. So he won't play 18 as you want but plays 2/4 and 3/5 if he backs up from Origin.

    Edit: are you looking at the eels instead of the titans?

    McInnes (C) (Smith)
    Vaughan, Brown (Bromwich (R), Graham
    Gallen, Crichton (VC), Taumalolo (McGuire, Elliot, Surgess (R))
    Walker, Hampton (SJ, Elgey (R))
    Fuimaono, Suli (Cotric, Leilua)
    Munster, Radradra, Edwards (Bye) (Hayne (R), RTS)

    So, captain McInnes and VC Crichton. If I don't like Crichton score then I leave it as is, If I do like his score then i sub McInnes off field for Smith (Smith shouldn't be a reserve, right? Reserves at the moment are Bromwich, Surgess, Elgey and Hayne?

    Hope this is correct Smile

    Both this forum and the Facebook groups have about the same ratio of fantasy advice to filler.

    But the facebook groups have a lot of insults and bickering, whereas we have quality banter

    I disagree you stupid cow. Wink

    Looks perfectly set to go. The only question I have is why not S. Burgess instead of Crichton?

    It's really a toss of a coin. Both are great VC choices. I'm still not 100% sure what to do haha.

    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?

    Oh, that makes more sense, so if surgess goes big, I take my r off de Belin, put it on hayne, then swap Gallen and De Belin. That way Gallen is never a reserve and I have Crichton, marsters, Hayne and C. Smith as reserves but then I get Gallens AE?
