    Missed it before, but Alex Twal to Wests Tigers immediately, and named on extended bench this week.

    Go Mansauce. Get some Pa Rapa in your team and enjoy watching two nutcases week in week out.

    7 trades left. JDB to Taupau...........

    Nah I'll stick solid I think. Seems tempting but same reason I held off on getting Nathan Brown until Round 12 was you just never know. Taupau could get suspended this round for all I know so just got to stick to your guns.
    Running out of trades was my downfall once, I shan't be letting that happen again.

    Is it weird to consider using Cam as the VC with the C on Gallen? Cam always goes well and it's a big clash with the Roosters so he should back up but you don't know for sure that he will.

    Other VC options include SJ and one of my back 3 out of RTS, Edwards and Munster.

    I don't think that's weird. Smith is capable of going large obviously and if he get's hooked early Gallen's a pretty safe backup

    How many trades do you have left? I'm in single figures so I'm conserving them so curious to see what people trading him out have

    Seems like a decent trade but with 8 left (7 after I bring in Graham for Musgrove) I think it's a no from me.

    He was a front rower in the 80's.
    There isn't a lot of difference.

    14 - I'll probably get him back at some stage, I'm just trying to maximise my opportunities over the byes. I'm actually hoping a bunch of people will hold him to conserve trades.

    Has anyone considered bringing Merrin in? He plays the next three rounds, averaging 59 over 5 rds and 55 over the last three.

    Just on this sort of thing. What exactly is the mistake, and how do you plan on avoiding it next time?

    With hindsight, it's easy to see that Fui outscored MWZ. But does that mean next time you'll pick the bench forward ahead of the starting Centre?

    Without seeing the future, what will you change to not make that mistake again.
    Fair call. Just sour grapes I guess. Also id be pretty pissed if I were MWZ. 

    Goes to a club mid season, so I'm sure that conversation would have had 'starting centre' somewhere in it. Now he can't get in over bloody MCK and now Masters

    A lot of people brought Merrin in about a month ago. He could still be worth it.

    he and Taupau are the best of the forwards who play every game from here on in.

    Half considering for rd18. Wait and see if the blues win. If they lose or injuries slight chance of an origin call up

    Haha, no I haven't, I just thought he was a bit of a dickhead, hence the question.
