    Of the above combo I would take 2 as well. Though they are all close and not having Smith around hurts.

    Tough one eh .

    1) Smith (60-65) Nofo (40-60) = Risk medium
    Consistent Captain points are great, Gambling on Nofo returning to form so need some tries in at least most games. POD with him too

    2) McCullough  (55-60) NBrown (50-55) Risk Low
    Gamble on McCullough lifiting his run home, Niko starting is good for him too.Gamble on Captain each week

    3) McCullough (55-60) Tedesco (45-55) Risk medium
    McCullough same as above, Tedesco scoring tries is the gamble here too. Gamble on Captain each week

    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)


    For consistent 50+ scores from both players I'd go the second one as well. There's a bit more risk and luck involved with the others.

    Not sure if Farah will keep high minutes and really need him to keep averaging 50.
    That's why I need an exit strategy in case he bombs this week, but also a Merrin replacement too.

    Reluctant to bail out on Smith as he is that consistent captain and really does make up the difference

    If Scott is in (which it looks like he may very well be) I am then tossing between Hayne and RTS for my last FB spot, (would otherwise be playing both - Hayne covering the centre spot).

    I'm thinking Hayne this week as RTS against the Cows could have a few missed tackles at the back plus limited attacked opportunities. Warriors never go well in Townsville.

    Thoughts?

    If Reynolds doesnt play I will get Hamptons AE, he has proven to be a nuisance, ill upgrade him to Pearce next week but Smith was the priority.

    I'm deciding on DCE or Pearce. Leaning towards DCE based on current form.

    So I have 3 trades left. Please pick 1 option from each group:
    Group 1:
    (a) SJ out - Cleary in or
    (b) SJ out - Pearce in

    Group 2:
    (c) B. Smith out - C. Smith in (with 32k or 36k left which limits my buying power with 1 trade left) or
    (d) B. Smith out - McCullough in (with 140k or 144k left which gives me more buying power with 1 trade left)

    Cheers.
