    Havent been on for a while, is the eliminator league still going ahead?

    My Team for this week

    C. Smith (c)
    M. Taupau, N. Brown
    A. Crichton, J. Taumalolo, P. Gallen (J. De Belin)
    C. Munster, D. Cherry Evans
    J. Leilua, J. Hayne (T. Fuimaono)?
    J. Rapana, J. Tedesco, D. Edwards, (R. Tuivasa Sheck), (C. Walker)

    J. Graham back next week :-)

    Last Reserve out of Fuimaono, Eisenhuth and Marsters? Didn't see the Bunnies game last week, any reason why Fuimaono's score was low? I am leaning towards him.

    I'm still trying to decide whether to go DCE over Pearce/Cleary so I can go RTS > Teddy next week. If I go Pearce/Cleary I won't have any cash to get Teddy and with only 2 trades left won't be able to get him for a few weeks.

    Only played 39 minutes. 4 forwards on the bench and no Cook. Towards the end of the game he went into the centres too for Johnston I think it was.

    Flip a coin on those three reserves though.

    I would go DCE if it means I can get Teddy also.

    I'm leaning that way but I'm worried about Cleary and his run home...

    Cheers mate!!, cook has been named this week with 2 other FRF so I think I'll play Fuimaono. Will make it easier when J. Graham is back next week.

    SMat still going ok for a centre spot. ET is more consistent but his scores are on the slide. Upgrade before his price drops any further.

    Adam Reynolds is confirmed as playing this week. Will be wearing a finger guard and plenty of strapping but will take the field.

    SMat will go to the 2nd row for this week and I'll be playing Turbo and Hayne in the centres. Means I have SMat or Croker to take the 4th reserve spot. I'm leaning towards SMat there.

    Last time I held Niko when he got back into the halves he got 17. I'd go ahead with the trade. His BE would be quite high from what I remember. Munster will go up.

    yeah, i was thinking with the extra room at fullback and his speed could result in T/B's and tries. Also, less missed tackles coz he won't have forwards running at him all day !

    Thought I would join in with the convo this afternoon

    Which combo

    1)Smith/Nofo
    Smith replaces Farah next week,Nofo as a reserve replacing Merrin
    Smith becomes Captain and Nofo a low cost gamble

    2)McCullough/NBrown
    McCullough replaces Farah next week,Nbrown as reserve replacing Merrin

    3)Mcullough/Tedesco
    McCullough replaces Farah next week, Tedesco as reserve replacing Merrin

    4) Just replace Merrin with any player up to 500k banking last trade, but pretty much stuck with Farah in 17 (depending on future price rises and $$ left over may be able to get McCullough in later)
