    You don't think Lodge and/or Evans would put on enough value to jump to someone better? My 2RFs WFBs and bench is pretty much set and forget barring injuries. Hiku will depend on someone like Kennar,Opacic etc jagging a centre spot and if so I would then flick Hiku. [/quote

    I wasn't going to pick Hiku but I read a comment on sc addicts about how greedy he was so he's perfect for fantasy.

    Training the house down.

    Jarryd Hayne is reportedly struggling at pre-season training with the Parramatta Eels finishing last in a 5km obstacle run, lagging behind many of his teammates, including Coach Brad Arthur who finished in the top 10 on the same run.

    “Jarryd has never been a tremendous pre-season trainer, we know that,” Hooper said. “When Ricky Stuart had him at the Parramatta Eels – and all his coaches will tell you – pre-season’s not where Jarryd does his best work.

    We have an Ultimate League draft comp mate, not sure how NRL Fantasy works but in Ultimate no salary cap.  Let us know if you are interested or look for the Ultimate League thread.

    Scratch that, Ultimate League has finished up Crying or Very sad

    Did you see the wonderful snipe by the reporter saying that Brad Arthurs 12 year old son beat Hayne in another test Lol

    I haven't seen Fifita much, was in all my original selections and found his way back in last night

    his 54.5 avg is his bare minimum in my opinion, plenty of scope to return to his glory 60s

    Probably just hard to fit him in I guess. There didn't seem to be any particular reason for his decrease in scores. Minutes were much the same, I don't remember there being any injury affected games. His output was just slightly down in all areas as far as I can tell. I might try and put a Fifita team together.

    He is usually up in the 60s in terms of average that's 5.5 points higher than any of the FRF scored last year, for a position where some of the high end players have question marks

    Vaughan - graham
    Graham - now injury prone and and Vaughan
    Taupau - priced accordingly
    Papalii - Decent option and DPP, priced accordingly
    RJames - 2RF switch where he doesn't score as well

    That wouldn't put me off mate and with the emergence of RCG, Vaughn, McClean and guys like Klemmer, JTurbo, Woods all stalwarts he might not even find himself picked

    Take out last year and the previous four years average is 62. Minutes should be safe, same coach and you would think Seggy remains on bench as a utility. Yeah I've gone off Graham, just don't know what his role will be and big minute players like Vaughan and JDB and I don't expect Vaughan to score a million tries again either.

    Just seems weird to me having to scroll down that far to find Fifita, when he's usually sat behind Smith Laugh 3

    Vaughan was a pretty decent try scorer when he played for us, last year was hardly the first signs of it. Ill back him again.

      Current date/time is Tue Feb 20, 2018 8:24 pm
