    Teddy and Ponga stand out for me as the two to get - value for money + high scoring.

    I have then drawn a line through any wingers because I know I can get them cheaper at some stage this year, drawn a line through GI, Moylan, Holmes, Dugan, Hayne for various reasons.

    I keep coming back to Latrell Mitchell or Dufty for 3rd Fullback. Dragons game this week may decide whether I think Dufty is worth the gamble.

    Just feel the guns/semi guns you have gone with are not playing round 13, and this may eventually hurt you. Solid side and good cover. No cook, no murray, no Teddy a surprise.

    I think you can get away with it if the likes of Arrow, Carty, RFM, Murray etc get starting spots because they should produce good scores far above their starting price and you can start them in your 2RF without much worry of poor scoring

    I think you can easily get Teddy and Ponga together and still have a solid team, most people gets area doing just that

    Getting the 3rd WFB at Dufty/Inglis price is doable as well, although this is the point where your start having to compromise elsewhere

    Ive been struggling to decide on a 3rd wfb as well to join teddy and ponga. Would love tturbo but too much money to spend and he should come down in price. I'll most likely have 2 cheap ctrs so would like a dpp player so have got mitchell or cotric pencilled in

    Fifita + Hiku starting or James Graham + Mbye/Dufty/Inglis with Hiku on the bench as WFB and CTR cover?

    What will you do if Farah starts getting minutes? You'll be left having to down grade else where to upgrade one of the most important positions in your team.

    From what I can see your Guns are Fifita, Teddy and Edwards. Big fans of all three, but it has left you relying on a lot of mid rangers producing the goods.

    This feedback is pretty unhelpful because there is no easy fix. Personally, id be down grading fifi and looking at bringing in a safer hooker.

    I'm still drawn in on a Teddy, Nofo, Ponga trio at the back, but it's probably crazy to spend that much.

    The more I think about Souths and Cook the more inclined I'm thinking just to drop him off my bench altogether and spend the money elsewhere. Even if Farah doesn't get a run in the 17 in round 1, a couple of losses or below par performances could see him back and would spell disaster. If Farah wasn't named in round 1 but makes the bench in round 2 or 3 that would just be a kick in the nuts.

    Who do you think has more value in having in your team:

    Thurston or Harris?

    Also is it worth gambling with Peachy?
