    Almost 40% of people have Taumalolo. Yikes. Here's hoping that he has a poor start to the season and get him cheap later on! bounce

    Morning all

    Don't know if this has been mentioned before but can anyone confirm if the projected price changes for each player have been scaled up to match the new player prices. From memory (always hazy) these price changes look awfully similar to last years.

    Are we all about to be jipped about 50% of the money that we were expecting to make?

    Wouldnt be surprised to see Inglis go big vs the Warriors 1st up at it will be a big come back story.

    Anyone brave enough to start with him. Rumour he will eventually go back to fullback. Save a trade and start with him?

    I know its last minute, but would people be keen to have a Forum tipping comp? Doesn't have to be for cash. Can't put a price on bragging rights.

    Taupau for PODish value (at least around here) or Merrin for that extra $100k to fix things next round

    Think you'll find that the formula will take care of that automatically. Because there is an equalising component to keep the value of the total player pool static, it's not really possible for the proportions to be thrown out of whack.

    First year - I think this is my 50th revision? Thoughts would be greatly appreciated [still not sure on Forward pack].

    Ironclad Lads (21 / 21)

    HOK: C. Smith
    FRF: A. Fifita, M. Lodge
    2RF: P. Gallen, J. Arrow, R. Faitala-Mariner
    CTR: B. Croft, B. Cartwright
    HLF: L. Mitchell, P. Hiku

    INT: R. Rochow
    INT: S. McKendry
    INT: L. Croker
    INT: S. Havili

    EMG: J. Isaako
    EMG: V. Kikau
    EMG: P. Godinet
    EMG: S. Katoa

    Cheers!!!

    Oh, and what's with the suggestions [r/NRL] on stacking up on Hookers?

    Welcome mate that's a cracking starting 13. Your reserves McKendry, Croker & Havili could be low scorers & I would probably play Kikau over McKendry. If you want to raise cash I would probably downgrade Gallen because I wouldn't want both Fifita & Gallen. Also with Gallen's age will he get the same minutes. He should be fit though will all the boxing training he does. If you need more cash I would probably downgrade Rapana as I'm not sure how the Raiders will start the season. True they have a great start to the season but I have my doubts.

    My lowest % owned player is at 7.8% and I only have 3 under 10%... seems like a bit of a generic team

    I have him in the team with mitchell at ctrs. had to dump arrow, and play 3 cheapies (incl katoa) though. also only 4k in the bank...

    really need to pick the right 18-21 for it to be worthwhile. mostly cookie cutter team apart from going cold on rochow and nicholls

    Surprised with the love Whitehead is getting on here because he is at lock. 604k is a lot of coin, there is plenty of better value 2RFs out there this year. I feel he is not going to make as much cash compared to others.

    That seems worryingly low. But I'm going to put it down to him having a red dot and no pic. I keep looking to upgrade him purely because of this haha.

    Although again, it's so low it's actually a bit of a concern.

    What about POD Whitehead? (a @Welshy endorsed pick)
