    I will get a thread up this week with the guidelines.

    As stipulated in the pre-season Leagues threads, only those Fanatics in the 8 NRL Fantasy Fanatics (L1 through L8) seeded Leagues are eligible.  This incorporates the vast majority of our active members.  Apologies to our new posters who won't be able to participate, and those few seasoned posters who didn't make the seeded Leagues.  We do this for various reasons to ensure the Eliminator runs smoothly.

    For those who missed out, you will be able to participate next year in our Leagues and Eliminator Very Happy

    EDIT: Bren set the Eliminator League up with the Fanatics Overall Group, which is why everyone had 3 codes instead of the normal 2.  What this means is there will be no registration requirements this year.  If you are in L1 through L8 you are automatically entered.  There is nothing to be done to enter, you allready are entered if in a Fanatics seeded League Very Happy

    Bloody hell! No

    only L1 to L8 Shocked

    I'm in L51 Bang

    Croker Cotric Kelly SMat
    Walker Edwards Lolohea Slater Semi

    Not sure what the go is with Kelly, but if Fifi backs up I have 9 trades so should be able to get 17 using 2.  Wanted to cash out Semi and upgrade Elliot but looks like SMat to someone and Elliot or Kaufusi to Taupau, Mannering if Fifi backs up and I'm guessing Yates gets his regular game time back next week.  Might see more with SMat out too.

    In a great position there mate with all those trades up your sleeve and the depth in your squad, shouldn't have any worries if there's any carnage, I'm very envious.

    Thanks mate. Next few moves could be crucial though. just got into the top 1000 for the first time over the weekend so want to get a decent enough 17 to try and keep climbing. Hopefully there are a lot of teams higher than me with less than 17 players running very low on trades, could be a decent round hopefully ranking wise. Looking at it now, I probably should have punted Slater or Munster but I think I can get around it this week and hopefully they both have a lot lower ownership come round 20.

    Grrrr fantasy ripping me off with those -3 points to the Rossdog. I mean hey though he's getting 40's scores without tries while RTS is buffing up his numbers with try after try so I made the right decision there plus I love my POD's.

    I'll have 16 next week I think, no Vaughan and Smat stops me getting a full 17. Just hope all origin players back up but doubt it. I was meant to have 16 this week but ended up with only 12

    I'll have a full team next week although that does include players like Sele and Burns. Might have just 16 if Fifita's a cat and doesn't back up.

    Planned trades - SMat to 138k, Moses to SJ. Will leave me with 2 trades - do I hold them, or use them both to get Smith?

    My top 17 will be:

    Friend, McInnes,
    Taupau, McGuire,
    Crichton, Taumalolo, Mannering, Gallen, Merrin
    SJ, Cleary, DCE
    BJ, Scott
    Munster, Edwards, Walker

    18th - 21st man: Graham, Semi, Fui, Gurgess

    With just 2 trades left for the run home just pray you can do good without Smith. I'd be waiting use those trades on something like Poppin' Fresh out for Fifita when he's cheap and back in-form via DPP's.

    Loads of trade options going through my head post-SMat news. Basically comes down to this though...what is best option for next month.

    A) Cleary + Guth (+Lane NPR cover)

    B) Tedesco + Koroisau (+Fui NPR cover)

    Went up to 85th from 186th with a score of 709 which I'm surprised by. First time in the top 100 this season too Very Happy
