    Saw a chart recently that, long story short, showed the roosters as having the easiest draw of any team since 2002 or something

    I read a fox sports article saying the raiders have the most favourable draw this year. But being the raiders, I doubt that’s true. The NRL hate the raiders

    Also being Smithless, would I be crazy to Captain Teddy against the *Tigers, compared to Fifita vs Cows, compared to Brown vs Panfers?

    @mulvy wrote:@Welshy, Brown or Harris?

    Price difference is too big so not really a fair comparison

    I'd back Brown to average around 58 and Harris 48-52

    didn't you have some great stats backing Fifita against the Cowboys mate?

    You can make any argument look good with stats, 70% of people know that. But seriously, Fifita in 38 degrees 100% humidity, vs Ted up against his old team, juicy but do I have the  Balls

    It is apparently whitehead. With tapine moving to edge
    Boy i hope so, really enjoyed Whitehead in the middle and he's a clever footballer so if you give him a bit of licence to move about a bit instead of being fixed inside BJ's left it could add a bit to the attack. Plus Tapine is dangerous 1 on 1, Soli must be winding down a bit and you've got Murchie lurking in the wings. The only concern id have is that we really seemed to lack whenever we were missing Soli (possibly due to a leadership void).

    Also I'm assuming that whitehead stuff is based on This?
    Mind you someone on the GH said they heard Papa say he wasn't playing in the trial (which is fkn bizarre) so who knows what to take away from it all. Why do we only ever play one bloody trial with 90000 players.

    Last year he played 15 games at centre, and 1 on the wing? Who do you think will take his spot?

    I'd imagine full strength Roosters would be

    Tedesco
    Tupou
    Mitchell
    Manu
    Ferguson

    I thought they switched Fergo into the CTR last year with Latrell the other? Must have him muddled up with Fergo then

    True but just feel like with the new format my team feels more balanced spending the money across the rest of the team. And then there's the fun of actually thinking about who my captain is each week, haha.

    Maybe during the games they might have switched, but Ferguson was always named on the wing

    For an improvement from Manu's scoring then I'm probably needing a glut of tries and hoping for a fast start in the early season then. Not ideal
