    Good stuff mate, you're in with a real shot at winning.

    One spontaneous trade last week and one unplanned one this week and I'm down to only 2 trades. I can see myself running out within the next 2 rounds.

    You can trade SJ to basically whatever half you want.

    I think the points difference for Pearce (or whoever you choose) over Lamb is probably big enough to justify the risk of burning a trade on.

    All things considered SJ to Cleary or Pearce or even a WFB like Teddy?

    Just personally, if I had Ted now I'd be happy. Just don't know if I'd want to bring him in for the last month or 2 though. We won't even get to our stancdard "hovering just outside the 8 and will play just well enough to just miss out again" stage this year.

    You have to sell. With his price and most likely gone for the season, even if you had 1 trade, you use it. Conserve trades with these sorts of situations and play Lamb when you have 0 trades left.

    After round 20 with Friend and Johnson to replace I'll be joining you on two trades mate.

    Yates playing reserve grade, so just dropped. Thought it might have been injury related.

    Kennedy playing too so Lane seems quite safe. Kennedy not doing much, doesn't look like threatening Lane for that first grade spot.

    I think I'll just hold Merrin for now. Need to use a trade on Friend > Smith next week, leaving me with 3 trades.

    I'll just have to play one of Fui, Semi or Mitch Moses until either Merrin or Graham are back

    How long does Lane get the starting gig for? He is filling in for Sironen isn't he? When is Sironen due back anyway?

    Not until finals. LBrown could threaten but I'd say he'd go back to the bench.

    It's hard to guage how he'll perform with the club playing so poorly and him going to the chooks next year.

    Could go either way, he might say fuck it and cruise through the rest of the games or he might have a point to prove and play hard to show the Tigers fans what they'll be missing once he's gone.

    I'll be taking the risk and bringing him in, I'll see how he goes this week and next and if all is well I'll use my last trade on him.

    Friends, Fanatics, countrymen- lend me your ears!

    Seriously though, this is likely my last pickle of the season and anybodies help would be greatly appreciated!
    Let me break it down for you...

    I will have 2 trades left after I do Friend> Smith and SJ>Tedesco (/DCE) next week.

    Currently running with Gurgess or an NPR CTR as my 4th reserve, but I also have Capewell waiting to upgrade to a gun to complete my 17. I can afford to turn Capewell into Maguire and keep the 1 extra trade for injury

    Or...

    Use both trades to turn Capewell into Lolo/Mannering/Gallen and rely solely on NPRs like Gurgess, Fuimaono and Smat for injury cover

    Or...

    Just keep Gurgess 4th reserve, wasting Capewell's cash but keeping 2 trades for injury.


    Team for context:

    Smith (McInnes)
    Vaughan JBrom (Gurgess)
    Crichton JDB Surgess (Brown) (Merrin) Capewell
    Cleary Munster NuBrown Field
    Leilua Scott Smat Fui
    Tedesco Edwards Gutherson CNK Burns

    Rank 364 but plummeting fast.

    Thanks felluhs!

    Think I'm going to be $1k short of being able to go SJ to Pearce and Friend to Smith. Will be able to go SJ to JTurbo if Jake scores less than about 80 so watch him go huge.

      Current date/time is Tue Feb 20, 2018 7:30 pm
