    I'm not sure there is any official word on the lineup yet but yeah you'd imagine they just trot out the team that played last week + the addition of Glasby.

    Jeepus just saw this as well mentioning Foran and BMoz not playing this week. Sounds like this week is shaping up as a crazy one already.

    My summary of injuries/withdrawals from origin and other news
    Warriors - Foran out, replaced by Hingano
    Bulldogs - Morris out, other reps expected to play
    Tigers - Tedesco out
    Gold Coast - no news
    Cowboys - JT out
    Panthers - no news
    Raiders - no news
    Broncos - Boyd out with broken thumb
    Roosters - Cordner out
    Storm - Smith, Cronk, Slater and Chambers out
    Dragons - JDB out and Frizell not expected to play
    Knights - no news
    Sharks - all expected to play
    Eagles - some reports saying JTurbo will play, some say he won't

    The info is only what I have seen or heard, I can't guarantee it is 100% correct.

    Cheers Chucky. very interesting week, when everyone is trying to settle on the final teams having some of these guys out is going to lead to some tough decisions. Not sure what I'm doing now just based on the Smith news alone.

    I have no bloody idea what to do. Capitalising on JDB being out was where I was heading but now it just seems some teams above will struggle regardless. So mate just get two keepers in and be on my way with Cleary and Mansour

    Should I just bite the bullet and go James to Fifita this week before going Semi to Teddy next week? I was going to do it anyway but is it too sideways seeing as they both play this week?

    So Sash's team this week.

    Made the trade of Slater to Trbojevic this week. Not sure where else to go with his team. Planning (VC) Johnson and (C) Gallen for the week.




    The team looks stacked with $400k in the bank almost and 13 trades left.

    You might as well, James has a BE of 71 and if he has another poor week if could cost you another $50k or so.

    You'd have to think the Panthers would be pretty strong favourites now even away against the Cowboys. Penrith nice & rested with no rep players & the Cowboys with JT out & coming of a extra time loss against the Storm. Morgan & Hess should be gtg but can Cooper back up after playing 80 minutes & he's no a young man.

    If Laybutt plays then I don't have to worry about an AE. Although to be fair he's probably not gonna score a hell of a lot is he.

    Feels like trades this round are gonna be hugely important

    With 14 trades left, I'd definitely double trade this week

    Could trade out JDB or Smith, but with that bankroll I'd be tempted to do Musgrove - Taupau or Jai Field - Cleary

    Slater -> Trbojevic makes some cash and gives a player for this round and the a couple more this season assuming he doesn't play Origin. I really like both the suggested trades. Either one gives an extra player this round so thoughts on...

    Musgrove - Taupau or Jai Field - Cleary

    Half looks like the weakest position
    Cleary in. No more byes. You could burn the bank and trade Fogerty/Field or with CWalkers form who knows what scores he'll post.
    Brighter minds will turn up soon.

    Bringing in Barnett opens up all kinds of possibilities, yet absolutely frightens me too.
