    GG what a team! I think they're great trades, and you will have plenty of versatility for the end of the season too. Plenty of options for luxury upgrades should you want to as well

    Thanks mate!!! :-) :-) :-)
    So my reserves don't seem weak? I'm a bit worried about walker and Edwards. Compared to some other peoples teams where they have De Belin, Vaughan, kapow and graham etc on the bench.
    I think if walker doesn't seem consistent and I can somehow upgrade him to Pearce, I would feel a bit more confident

    I was going to say, the other option is to pick one of Hayne, Cotric or Fui and downgrade them to an NPR if you need that little bit more cash. I think having Walker OR Edwards might be ok but I guess having both of them as reserves is risky. Depends how many trades you have left

    Cheers mate, I'll just have to hold off for now until I can upgrade one :-)
    Don't have many trades left, even Fui might be a great choice as a final reserve if he keeps starting in the second row and the rabbits fire!

    Merrin and Mansour are new additions to that number. 

    For those that have Suli, do I get rid of Suli for Mansour this week instead of Milf?? Provided Laybutt starts for the Cows to get rid of my AE problem.

    It is with a heavy heart I say farewell to King Gutherson and welcome Man:sauce: to my squad. With an average of 6 TBs and 200m per game he is a handy bye friendly addition to my squad.

    Depends on how much cash you will need to get those guys in. Whitehead seems to be the first downgrade target. Since with a full squad I'm sure he would be outside your reserves. 
    Who will Pearce be coming in for?? Can't imagine you'd trade out SJ or Munster. Perhaps Cotric.

    Maybe have a look at what you want in your final 17 and go from there. Funding may be tough.

    I have been sitting here for a while trying to decide what would be the best route to the team you want. To be honest you're going to have to sacrifice both Whitehead and Walker, plus probably Hayne and one of your centres to get anywhere even close to the amount you will need. Are those 4 players who you want in that order? This week I'd go Whitehead - Eisenhuth via Wallace (keeps a player for this round, plus near-max cash out), and then Walker - Pearce via Munster I think.

    Think you may also need to revise some of those targets.

    Merrin instead of Taupau
    Cleary instead of Pearce

    Then you may be able to fit them all without major team surgery.

    With all of this team carnage is trading out JDB still a priority?

    Original trades were to bring in Mansour and Cleary for Suli and Milf

    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.

    Plenty of trades left I would go JDB to Taupau without a second thought

    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

    Didn't even consider this. I would do Musgrove to Taupau without second thoughts

    IF we trade Musgroev to taupau, we can use DPP to get Lolohea into halves and Hayne into WFB

    I think it depends what the carnage has meant for you. For a lot of "bye-planners" I'd say the carnage has actually upped their playing numbers with the likes of Scott, MWZ, and Laybutt all in. That means the gains for bringing in Taupau for JDB won't be as great IF your playing numbers are now 17 or more as opposed to <17.

    For me my playing numbers went up by two as a result of all the outs, so JDB to Taupau is now off my radar. I was short in trades anyway though so that's another reason.

    Also worth considering what JDB to Taupau now means for your potential to loophole too post Origin carnage!

    I'm looking at 19 now if I go with Milf > Cleary and Suli > Mansour

    MWZ and Kelly outside of the 17

    I need help please

    Smith McInnes
    JBrom Brown Musgrove Tualau
    Surgess Crichton JDB ET Gallen Elliott
    SJ AREy Laybutt Brown
    Hoppa SMat Fui Scott
    Ted Munster RTS Hayne Abbey 251k 8trades

    Smith JDB and Ted a real kick in the nuts but Scott and Laybutt helps and I still think Tualau will play which only gives me 14. I could suck it up but I would rather get two more bodies in but with trades running out I really don't want to be trading out keepers. So I'm thinking:

    Musgrove -> JGraham
    Abbey -> Dedwards

    Then round 19 cash out Elliott and get Fifita back for JBrom (or Brown, whoever is worse/injured) would be pretty much my final team. It's more depth than I was going to go with especially in the backs but still a solid 17? Or should I try and strengthen the 17?
