    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

    Agreed. Considering MCK was a late benching last week for Marsters wasn't he?, I'm thinking/hoping MWZ could get the call up. Makes it difficult with loopholing as I'm right on the bubble for numbers

    My name is Bronchose, and I'm a tradeaholic.
    Its been 30 secs since my last trade. and it was a double.

    I know that with only 7 trades left now, I can't afford it, but JDB to Taupau, and CWalker to Edwards seemed necessary.

    I need help...
    With 7 trades left, I'd hold JDB for a couple of weeks. I'd rather JDB in my final team than Taupau.

    My opinion (not worth a lot) is:

    C - too sideways. Only benefit is different dpp if you need it.
    B - Depends on your WFB situation. If you are happy with it, looks ok.
    A - my preference if you pull the trigger this week (so you get the score this week). Although I haven't done any numbers to compare this against B - more just the vibe of it.


    Thank you for your opinion kind sir, yes I was tossing up between A and B myself. My trades this week (unless I change my mind again) are Semi to Edwards and Kelly to Tedesco via Hayne. I have 108k left but only 4 trades left after this week. I am hoping to not have to use any more trades until round 19 where if cash allows me to go with option B I will have this as my final team hopefully(but with only 1 trade remaining yikes)

    Smith McInnes
    Fifita Taupau Eisenhuth Fai
    Taumalolo JDB Surgess Gallen Crichton JTurbo
    SJ Munster Hampton NuBrown
    BJ Hayne Fuimaono Scott
    RTS Tedesco Edwards 138k Phythian


    How does this sound?

    Lol he's on my radar to buy after round 18. He has lost so much money and is dirt cheap so hopefully a couple more bad scores and he will be like 300k Very Happy

    I'm doing JDB > Barnett.
    Risk is low at that price and playing lock is even better, that 200k means I don't have to skimp on WFBs, Halves.

    I think JDB is certainly one player you want in your final team. I'm just saying that cause I got him in last week, but I'll have to hold.

    That's the other thing. I'm glad Buhrer isn't in the 21 this week as I have to play Yates.

    Buhrer, Barnett and Sione should be the back rowers when all fit.

    Fitzgibbon will be the one to make way for Buhrer

    Was always indefinite with the likelihood of being back quite quickly. Might have confused him with lui who is out for the season. Happened in the same game iirc

    I didn't get Ponga because I worried about things. Fairly confident Barnett will be fine once he returns. And I'm basing that on absolutely nothing

    I started the year with Barnett.
    His scores were less than great.
    Too many missed tackles and errors.
    He rushes up out of the line to make the tackle and often misses.
    He is definitely capable of big scores, but very inconsistent.

    Damn I forgot about him coming back. Fitzgibbon's appeal just plummeted.

    Will that actually hurt his scoring? Not sure what kind of tackles he makes per game but i would have assumed it would be increased at hooker which might offset the loss of attacking stats.

    He still makes a lot of tackles anyway. I think he takes away his RM possible tbs and offloads with it.

    I could be wrong Smuth mght come play 70mins and Brown will give him a tenner rest
