    What are you hoping James will deliver this year? Hiku & Katoa as starting back 5 are concerning too as well as Kikau in your 17.
    With my team I've tried to have a maximum of 2 guys I'm worried about (just Katoa in my current draft) - mainly as I don't have Smith.

    .....what I'm saying is, try putting RFM in to your starting 13, trade out James and see what alternatives you could get for Hiku/Kikau?

    Only thing that worries me about Latrell is his high number of tries (~14) and linebreaks last year. Yes he picks up (roughly) half their goal kicking this year, but if their attack gets diverted more to Cronk's side then you're in trouble to just maintain his current price?

    Townsend hype article below. One of the key reasons I'm interested in him is I went to the trial last weekend and he kicked even though Holmes was on the field. This backs it up too: "In Maloney’s absence Townsend will also take on the goalkicking duties at Cronulla. It is just another example of the now 27-year-old taking ownership of the team."

    having a small punt on him to lead try scorers this year @ 21.00

    Hmm nice. There used to be a betting thread on here..not sure if it's still around?
    But my pre-season v value bets are:
    Dally M: Moylan 51, Croft 126 and Townsend 301

    If Latrell is going to go on with it and be a star then he will be scoring more than 14 tries. He looks awesome.

    If Townsend gets Dally M I'll chop my manhood right off  !

    I'm starting to get a bit sour on Lichaa with Nu Brown sniffing around very closely. Not sure what the go will be there.

    Not sure why you would have 4 FRFs in your team? I would go 3 max as there's more upside to a 2nd rower fantasy wise.
    Or drop Kikau to your EMG bench?

    I am confident Lichaa will get bigger minutes than last year (he had a few bench appearances that killed his average)

    He is almost certainly undervalued, but perhaps not by enough to justify selecting. I am certainly considering him, but he may get sacrificed to allow someone like Fifita/Merrin/JT instead.

    The Roosters preferred attacking play is to the left. Pearce was there last year & the left side was still preferred. Also I think Tedesco favours this side as well with a sweeping play to the left.

    He just got sacrificed for Fifita for me.....for now.

    its also a tad meaningless to worry about what side of the field Cronk plays on. In 2017, Addo-Carr scored a bucket load of tries.
