    Got very lucky. Overnight updates gave me 4 more points, 1001 for the round. 2nd time cracked the 1k.
    2 trades left but not enough cash so can't do much with surgess unless i used both (cashout and upgrade). Only have 1 league left and i've got this week off so will hold trades.

    Have $94k and it's not enough to upgrade Taupau or Surgess to anyone meaningful. :/
    Don't want to use both trades if I can help it!

    "Sea Eagles prop Martin Taupau has narrowly avoided suspension.." from nrl.com

    Thank fuck. Now I just need at least 1 of Munster or Leilua, preferably both to be right this week.

    I don't see Munster playing this week, unfortunately. :/

    I just figured out I can do Taupau ---> Taumalolo with $0 to spare. Leaves me with 1 trade and no back-up in the FRF though.

    Done.

    best 17 with Munster:

    Smith (McInnes)
    NBrown, Vaughan
    JT13, JDB, Crichton (Gallen, Surgess)
    Pearce, Cleary (Munster)
    TTurbo, Scott
    Dufty, Deddy, Teddy

    Fuimaono being my 18th man.... or do I play him instead of Dufty???

    Probably just no munster again.

    Wonder what will happen with crichton, and whether surgess will be given a week off.

    I reckon this is a risky week to captain Cam, despite newcastles good form, it would be the week to give him a bit of a break, if its going to happen.

    I don't see Melbourne giving Cam the week off (assuming this happens, which I don't think it will) until they have the minor prem sewn up.
    Broncos win their next three and Storm lose the next three = Broncos win the minor prem. Extremely unlikely but could happen.

    Bellamy is not one to take risks.

    Random asked me to take it easy on you lot this year. You know can't be the new guy and show off straight away.

    I don't know what No Worries excuse is. He probably should have worried a bit more

    Re-read and think you might've meant that he only plays 60mins or so.
    This is also possible. I believe last time this happened (correct me if I'm wrong) Cam actually started from the bench, came on and played 60mins for 60+ points.

    Is there something in the rule book that states you can't try and jump over players? I think its hilarious that anyone would try such a thing, I know Ive never seen anything like it. I can understand there is a certain aspect of danger in what Vunivalu did as he was leading with the knees. Whats the verdict? Have they just given him a $1500 fine or something?

    I thought he'd get some sort of grade 1 fine for leading with the knees, but no mention of it.

    Yeah, no chance he gets the week off.

    Might only play 60 - 70 mins though, which was what I was getting at. Obviously depends on game situation but I wouldn't be surprised if the knights have a 'down' game soon.
