    Daniel Saifiti was the predicted starter and he was named on the bench.

    Who knows if this is a temporary or permanent thing.

    I have Ese'ese down for getting a touch under 40 as an average if he keeps the starting spot. Priced at 32.

    My team right now

    Smith

    Cook
    Rochow
    Griffin
    Taukeiaho
    Nicholls
    Havili
    Kennar
    Croker


    Do not like my centres. At some point over the next 40 hours going to do a comprehensive review of all possible options to see what can happen.
    Think I'll put Inglis in if he gets DPP and I am confident in his fitness

    Would prefer Cartwright and Hiku to be my backup half/centre rather than starting, will have to see what I can swing.

    Guys who I will fit in my squad if I can get the cash include - Whitehead, James Graham, NBrown, Thurston, Aubusson, Lichaa
    If SST gets DPP I might move him in for fifita and free up a bunch of cash to improve elsewhere

    I have no confidence in Rochow's job security, but the upside is too big to ignore so he has to be there.

    I like your side. Similar to mine.

    Smith
    Lodge Fifita
    RFM Arrow Whitehead
    Croft Cartwright
    Mitchell Kennar
    Tedesco Ponga CWalker

    Cook Rochow Griffin Nicholls

    Havilli Katoa Doueihi Leilua

    Not sure whether leaving out Croker and Kikau is a good idea but feel like they are traps.

That will let me upgrade a 228k player to a Merrin/Harris/Whitehead or a 400k pick who didn't work out as hoped to a top tier gun with one trade

    So you don't want the points from the gun in round one?
    Could be a waste of a trade. Your 228k players need more than a week in your team to make good money?

    It can work with a bit of luck in setting your first team. I am seriously considering doing it again this year as well.

    It would be interesting to see how much a maxed team like this would score in round one, and how much money it would lose in total.

    smith
    fifita/graham
    crichton/taumalolo/gallen
    johnson/thurston
    gagai/aubbuson
    teddy/rapana/ponga
    mccullough
    cook
    de belin
    trejbovic
    munster
    blah, blah, blah

    Can only go with one of Lichaa or Cook?
    Can see all the upsides for them both.
    Thoughts?
    Such a PITA.

    Haven't posted in a while, so TLT is about the right time. So g'day again fellas.

    Going to throw a curly one in there, when Bennett names TPJ to start an hour before kick off. I have this team ready to change into should that be the case. Gets Katoa out of my starting team and brings in Turbo. Not a bad swap. (did have to do some other trades as well, but didn't suffer too much )

    What do you think.

    Smith
    Lodge, Rochow
    Whitehead, RFM, Brown
    Croft, Cartwright
    BJ, Kennar
    Turbo, Ponga, Tedesco

    Cook, TPJ, Arrow, Nicholls

    You can clear team if you have a full team, so if a couple short add a couple then clear team. If you only have a few I think you need to delete them one by one.

    Yeah they're the two I noticed immediately. I got excited for Brown from the first one only to be disappointed. Brown has now found his way back in to my team though regardless with Murray out and at the expense of Thurston.

    Jumping into the Deadzone with my new Northern Hemisphere Homies. First wake up to TLT I’ve had - rather exciting. Not getting much work done...

    Changes since teams posted have been Milne + Murray out for Latrell and Nicholls (bench). Current question for me is will Arrow average more than Rochow, Fualalo and Griffin?

    Interesting, I was just about to post: Who scores better of Arrow, Fualalo or Griffin (I already have Rochow). Sorry to hijack, basically the same question.

    I like Griffin, reckon a few will dodge him because of a hooker logjam, which i disagree with, because that is never a bad thing
