    Are you sure Scott will keep his spot once Chambers is back from origin duties now Blair is also back?

    I've been thinking of DCE as an option. He definitely relies on attacking stats for his scores so they tend to be up & down. His upcoming games will lend more to that side of his game & are quite good but he has some tough games where he may not score so well. He has 9 games remaining. I would classify 4 of those games (wests*2, dragons, bulldogs) as games he could score well in, 1 game away against the warriors in round 25 which could go either way because it depends on whether the warriors have given up by then, then he has 4 hard games (panthers*2, storm, roosters).

    Anyone tempted by A-Rey. The thing putting me off him is his injury risk & we know how hot & cold the Bunnies are & can they play the same way against the Roosters. But with a b/e of 35 this week & if he knocks out another 50+ score then he'll be out of my budget range.

    Tempting but no, not this late in the year with stuff all trades. Same reason I'm steering clear of Buhrer and Mansour.

    Going to be an interesting weekend for me, basically have to set up my team on thursday as I'm going to be in a plane or in an airport from friday 8am until 5pm saturday.

    Would you trade RTS to Cwalker this week if it ensured you could bring C smith back in (for either friend or mcinnes) round 20 in one trade?

    Still need to cash out the likes of yates to upgrade wallace to Mannering or downgrade suli and yates to upgrade marsters to mannering.

    I have 9 trades at the start of this round.

    The wallace to mannering trade option leaves me with 7 trades and some cash, suli and yates to get marsters gets me down to 5 trades but means I have wallace as a backup but probably no cash (also i'm banking on yates, suli and marsters appreciating by about 10-20k)

    What would you do?

    Hence the word assumptions and references to previous post. If Fui Scott Sione seem final 17 worthy otherwise will have money for luxury CTR trade with 2 remaining for injury

    Did you watch last game? Early on his leg got dragged in tackle afters and he stayed down clutching his groin. I thought unlucky Arey buyers. I couldn't cope with that stress every game until the end

    Now you have me worried. Should I go RTS to Cleary instead?

    I would get Arey if I had enough trades but I don't so it's Cleary or DCE for me and DCE 60k cheaper is swaying it

    I only have 3! But I might take a punt on ARey to allow me to have enough cash if I want to upgrade Brown,Scott etc Can't afford Pearce so I might have to give up on that pursuit as the only one to get him would be to ditch NathBrown or McInnes and I know that's silly thinking

    Until last week AREY hadn't scored over 50 since round 7 with three scores in that time in the low 30's. I'm surprised by the sudden interest in him to be honest.

    Until last week, he was on the chopping block for me. Still not certain on him..

    I had him in mind for an upgrade to Pearce myself. With Pearce missing the next 2 rounds it can certainly wait.
