    I'm leaning towards this but I miss Smith and I'm sick of having to worry about who I'll captain each week!

    That alone is a good enough reason and why Smith is so important to have in your side.

    Not having him available as a captain option during the bye period really set me back, he'll be set and forget for me from here on.

    Well shit those are both my HLF's gone. Oh dear my tenuous hold on my league is slipping away from me ever so slightly.

    So
    SJ & A Rey out. Pearce and DCE in.

    $25k and 1 trade left. Oy vey. Should I move Munster to HLF and get Teddy in. Decisions, decisions. Aye aye aye

    SJ to Pearce and Fui to Teddy gives me a final 17 of,

    Smith, McInnes
    Fifita, Taupau
    Gallen, Surgess, Mannering, JDB, Taumalolo, Brown
    Pearce, Cleary  ( WFB dpp)
    TTurbo, Scott, Hayne
    Tedesco, Munster, Mansour, RTS, Edwards

    Or save the two trades for another week as I can cover SJ with Munster for now.

    Thanks in advance.

    if you don't have to do it this week I would have look this week, to see how Pearce goes with the new dummy half. What kind of service he gets !!

    My season is doomed if A. Reynolds is missing a month.

    I have Friend, Johnson and Reynolds I would need to move with only 2 trades.

    Add to that, it would mean I would end up playing 1 of Scott/Fuimoana in my squad as well as a result of not being able to trade all 3.

    Someone posted a photo on Twitter of A Rey in a thumb guard at a fan day or something. Thought it might have been a lot of nothing as playing on with a thumb guard is not uncommon.
    The Mole tweeted about him missing a month though and even he wouldn't be posting such blatant fake news so it must be true.

    I reckon they've both played they're last origin and although they weren't entirely to blame for the loss, they'll be used as scapegoats. On top of the culture problem that's being reported about the team, its not a good look for NSW.

    A couple of my mates don't seem to think duges and fergo going to a pub for 8 hours, 5 days before the game, is an issue.

    To me, it just reflects their poor character/attitude and lack of respect for their teammates. Origin is a beast and you need to do everything right. They'd lost 10 of the past 11 series ffs. It should be an "all for one, one for all" mentality. Between the two of them, they couldn't have stopped and said, "wait, this might be a silly idea", especially given their history?

    If NSW won then the story doesn't get published, but they didn't win, so here we are.

    Why is it an issue? They had a day off and went to the pub to have a social meet up with mates - no report of poor behaviour or over indulging. What else is there to do in Kingscliffe? Loz made it clear there was no curfew on players.

    Few options that I can easily see;

    Friend to Smith
    SMat/Croker/ET to Teddy via Turbo
    ET to Mannering/Brown

    I'd be better off trading both SJ and A Reynolds this week, and getting Smith next week, right? (obviously this is pending confirmation of reynolds injury).

    Just gotta pick the right captain, for a change.

    Thinking about not bringing in Pearce as he has a high b/e and who knows how he will play without Friend,then I realised he is playing Newcastle hmm. It all depends on Scott keeping that CTR spot otherwise I'll bring in Turbo for Fui.
    How does this team look?

    Smith McInnes
    Fifita Taupau Brown Eisenhuth
    Taumalolo Gallen JDB Surgess Crichton Fai
    Pearce DCE NuBrown Hampton
    BJ Scott Fuimaono Kelly
    Munster Mansour Edwards Hayne Phythian

    Damn you arey.... first sj now this. Ok to the wiser heads out there i am contemplating 2 options
    A. Sj and arey to dce and teddy via munster...means no dpp to cover if one of halves go down
    B. Sj and arey to dce ans guths via dpp. Allows dpp to cover injuries.

    As i only have 1 trade left after this i think it would be wiser to go option b and miss on teddy.

    Thoughts?

    Friend is listed as coming back rd 23 but with the way these guys recover I reckon he'll be back before then so you'll still get 4 or 5 games out of him.

    The other two have to go unless you have someone decent that can fill in temporarily for Reynolds who is also a chance of coming back early as well.

    You're not alone with these problems mate, I'm down to my last 2 trades as well and will need to move SJ. Big decisions will need to be made this week.
