    Opacic the only one in that list i expect to play round 1, due to Bird injury. Be interesting to see how Savelio goes though

    Bennett threw a big wildcard last year when Miga started round 1 so who knows what may be in store this year..

    I am interested in Savelio also, think he can really push for a spot in the starting side if there is an injury in the second row or even outsting Alex Glenn if he starts poorly. If he nabs a bench spot round 1, I will probably pick him up as a slow burning cashie with big potential down the season. Nothing worse than a player finally getting the nod when they have already crept up 100k over time and are no longer a juicy cashout. Just worried that limited reserves this year means that all cashies need to be going boom from the getgo.

    Rate my team? I'm going for a couple PODs.

    170k free (just waiting for team lists).

    Lichaa
    Graham, RCG
    Arrow, Murray, Cordner
    Thurston, Croft
    Aubusson, Milne
    Mitchell, Slater, Hiku

    Garvey, NAS, Lodge, RFM

    Croker, Isaako, Kikau, Leleiusao (or whichever basement price ctr/wfb gets picked)

    What's everybody's thoughts on McCinnes this year?

    I fear that the Dragons will have someone like Kurt Mann on the bench, who will push to the halves occasionally, with Hunt pushing to Hooker, giving McCinnes a breather.

    Welshy rates him too I’m pretty sure. Says it all really he’s pretty good with picking SL players

    IMO Cordner, no Smith without Cook, and Slater are particularly bad choices. I'd like to here what you have to say about Cordner and Slater but there's no excuse for running Lichaa without Cook if you're not going with Smith or another gun hooker (e.g. McCullough/Friend)

    In the World Cup

    Week 1 (Fullback vs Ireland) - 49
    Week 2 (5/8th vs USA) - 99
    Week 3 (5/8th vs Fiji) - 30

    Thought I had State of Origin saved somewhere, but can't find it right now

    1. Jamayne Isaako
    2. Corey Allan

    4. Gehamat Shibasaki
    5. Moses Pangai
    6. Todd Murphy

    10. Payne Haas
    11. Salesi Funaki
    12. Andre Savelio
    13. Patrick Mago
    Interchange:
    14. Gerome Burns
    15. David Fifita
    16. Thomas Flegler
    17. Patrick Carrigan
    18. Myles Taueli
    19. Keenan Palasia
    20. Eddie Blacker
    21. Kotoni Staggs

    Surely if your last name sounds like "Ass" you don't call your kid Payne?

    As you said there are question marks. Outside of that you could pay an extra $100k for Smith. Then you have Garvey/Havilli, Cook and lichaa you could look at.

    HOK: Running without Smith is always a rising I would try and squeeze Cook in with Lichaa and Garvey just so you have the options. Then you just need a solid captain choice.

    FRF: Plenty of cover. I don't see the upside of RCG selection though.

    2RF: This is where your Captain choice should be, but there are just guys with question marks on them.

    HALF: Solid picks with common choices which is good.

    CTR: Decent picks.

    WFB: Isaako is unlikely to get a start. He is facing Opacic for the one spot. I don't think Mitchell is consistent enough but I see why people are picking him. Slater doesn't have much value.

    Big questions over who would be your Captain and Vice Captain.

    Cook only becomes must pick if the Rabbits dont play Farah or a utility, im leaning towards them running 2 hookers more then cook for 80min
