    If I had enough trades left, I would kill off every position outside the final 17 and loophole every week...

    The first or the third one. Leaning towards the third.

    I would go with either Fifita option... toss of a coin between those

    That's vaguely my plan except I'll probably have 18 and will be able to loophole if one of them is out.
    It's the plan now but it's only there because I have so many duds in my team already Laughing

    good luck to the dude, he seemed to cop it pretty hard compared to others (bromwich/proctor). look forward to seeing him improve with the knights

    I'm hoping that TMM can work his way into the Cowboys side by round 19... I don't want Laybutt messing with my loophole

    Siro out for 8 weeks. Lewis Brown worth a look as a possible cashout if he gets the second row gig. Not sure who else they have to put in there.

    Jarrad Kennedy would be another option.
    They also have Shaun Lane but he hasn't been doing much. Bill Bainbridge played a couple of games earlier in the season.
    Another option could be moving Taupau to the back row now that Lussick is back.

    Need another set of eyes if thats ok gents. I've been slowly slipping back in the rankings since rd 11 due to a combination of factors Bang

    My team at the moment with 7 trades and 87k itb.

    C.Smith, C.McInnes
    A.Fifita, J.Graham, DPP NPR, NPR
    P.Gallen, S.Burgess, J.DeBelin, J.Taumalolo, A.Crichton, M.Taupau
    S.Johnson, C.Munster, C.Walker, K.Laybutt
    T.Trbojevic, N.Cotric, T.Fuimaono, C.Scott
    B.Slater, D.Edwards, RTS, J.Hayne, J.Fogerty

    I dont have enough cash for any major upgrades so I was thinking,

    Cotric to Aubusson and Walker to Cleary for now and then after rd 18 I'll have to downgrade someone so I can bring in either Teddy or Mansour but who to downgrade and who to trade? That should be it for me then, only 3 trades for the run home is a bit tight but hopefully I'll have a bit more luck.

    How does all that sound? Can anyone see any better options for me?

    Any help will be very much appreciated.

    They had Dylan Walker & Sironen on & they were talking about team bonding & Matty asked Dylan Walker how he gets the team going then Matty says they should do what Hindmarsh does & puts his hand up to his mouth to imitate when you're smoking a joint & then Hindmarsh looks awkward, everyone cracks up & Matty goes yes we know it's for your arthritis mate.

    I think they will go with the Taupau option in the 2fr especially with Lussick back because Lussick is more suited to starting in the front row rather than as an impact player off the bench. Plus all the alternative 2fr options mentioned are pretty weak & would weaken the side if they started. As a Taupau owner I'm not sure I'm down with him moving out wider because last year he wasn't utilised because half the time they used him as a decoy runner. Surely this wouldn't be the case this year as he's their most damaging ball runner.

    I'll cash out to Lewis Brown if he's got the starting gig. Cheaper than Whare, DPP and by the time Siro would return, the fantasy season is pretty much over so not much AE risk.
