    Cheers mate, always appreciate those willing to slot into the worse ladder positions just to make my rank look that little bit better.  The bonus is that your handicap is country of birth so i don't have to feel too bad about it. Welsh

    I hate you.

    J-Rey

    Cartwright
    Garvilli
    Kikua
    Katoa

    Rather Podish. Could go well or not. I don't like two cheap centres and a Coote but lot's will be doing your centres and Coote's (hopefully) as low as he goes. I personally prefer Carty in the 17 rather than spending money there. RTS interesting, should go better after a year returning from ACL but when I looked at the stats seemed to be priced about right and I'd prefer to avoid Warriors backs. JRey pod should improve but again I'm avoiding tigers backs except for Milne. Townsend another pod, I'm not seeing it. But honestly everyone of those guys could put egg on my face.

    Chalk me up for one of these, summed up my feelings pretty well, without even asking.

    I'm not looking at the draws because i don't buy into the "easier draw" stuff, teams vary too much from week to week let alone year to year for that to hold water.
    That said:

    1st through to 3rd, left to right, not much separating them and im mostly using gut and personal bias, but can't sit on the fence for these kinda exercises to work.
    Group Turtle: Whitehead, Cordner, Harris
    Group Walrus: RTS, Nofo, Edwards
    Group Snake: JRey, Watson, Townsend

    I'm confused, picking which combo is better or which or the three players is better?

    Its that handicap i mentioned earlier. I believe he wants you to go through each group eg group 1, and rank the players in that group as 1st through to 3rd as I've done. But then again its Welsh

    He wants some kind of bet for who gets the closest to reality with their prediction, you keen to join in? We can score it like the ladder prediction stuff and either make it both 2nd and 3rd are losers with 1st doling out the punishment or 2nd gets a pass but 1st doles out something to 3rd.
