    For me it is simple the rules state it as such. I would prefer a hard lock out on the Captain and Vice to remove the loophole effect. It would make risks like deciding to go Crichton over Gallen, Taumalolo, de Belin this week more strategic and satisfying.

    However at the end of the day I am playing to do my best and if they are opening allowing it. (As per their rules) then I will do it. That is just the name of the game.

    Hopefully it changes next year.

    His next 2 games are Titans home & Knights away so I would be inclined to keep. But if you can use the cash for a gun just go with your gut.

    This week I'm going C. Walker to Edwards via Munster. I'm convinced that Edwards will be pumping out gun scores. C. Walker is shit.

    How many do people have playing today? I've got McInnes, Brown and JDB. Feel like that might be about one less than most?

    Have moved up from about 700 to 186th which I'm stoked about. 746/11. I had ET but no capewell or Tolo. Nearly went Surgess to Tolo too, would have had a monster if I had. I expect to tumble again though both today and next week when it is unlikely I will field 17.

    I have the same 3 players. I only had 11 players this round so I expect a ranking fall. My rank has gone from 173 to 306 but my Crichton loophole has kicked yet until the Dragons game locks out. Including Crichton I'm 620/8.

    McInnes, JDB, King Guth and watch out for this guy Hame Sele. Y'all going to be trembling in your boots as he racks up those big 10 points for my team today.

    Well at least Sele will beat my Phillip Sami pick who scored 9 points.

    I've got JDB MCInnes Vaughan Brown and Radradra so in for a big climb, especially when Crichton score actually doubles

    Guys that have already had captain double what does your total points and rank look like? Mine will be 11,739 when Crichton doubles but not sure where that puts me rank wise

    (C) McInnes? Yeah I expect to lose a fair bit of ground before anyone even score's a point today with the loophole coming into play for others whose captain hasn't played yet.

    Went JDB as he has a solid base. Can almost lock him in for 40 tackles and 100 metres along with chance at attacking stats

    When the Crichton loophole kicks in = 12,075 points with McInnes, JDB & N. Brown to play

    Yeah last time I looped a 65 Surgess scored 90 something. People need to stop complaining. It carries inherent risk. It's really the Crichton score that's set people off

    Exactly right! If Crichton scored a 60 not many would have jumped and we wouldn't be hearing about it.

    It was the same last time on a bye round when Teddy scored 100 and people did the C swap. I can gaurantee people did it last bye round too but it's not as a big of a deal because no one captain worthy scored that high
